Monica- Oooh, that's great, I'm so glad I could help!
I'm also from Poland and I have a few Biubiu clothes, definitely not going to stop on that. It's great that you wrote abt Biubiu, I hope it will help the company develop and will increase orders from abroad.
And yes, Biubiu is one in a million, or more than just a million: I love the way you look in that plum dress: Have you seen the new one Madison , especially designed for hourglasses?
Brittany you look incredible! And your photos are awsome! It was absolutely worth waiting: This comment has been removed by a blog administrator. I was starting to think I was weirdly built, but I'm relieved to see other people have the same problem. Anyway, I have more than 10 BiuBiu tops or dresses, and I've never had a problem with the empire line being too low, etc. Sometimes the sleeves are too long, but I usually have this problem in clothing am cm tall, with narrow shoulders.
OK, to be completely honest, it's not that all Bravissimo clothing doesn't fit me the 's navy dress fits like a glove in 8RC and the purple jersey dress is even a bit on the small side - it shrank in the wash: I have however decided to think twice before ordering any of their fitted shirts. Lillefix linked me to your blog, since I'd posted on another forum wondering if BiuBiu shipped to the US.
This is a really helpful post. And the clothes look gorgeous on you! Kelly- That was the same reaction I had! I saw the traffic from that forum and went and looked, but Google translate was no help in understanding what she said- it said something about chicken and a furniture store! I'm just glad she liked the review, though. I want to help Biubiu out as much as I can! Ann- I have seen them, they look great! Unfortunately, they don't come in a Katie and Roxanne - Thank you!
Lillefix and Ptasia- I'm so glad Ptasia was able to answer that question since I wasn't sure how to answer. It's hard for anything to be too long on my torso! I do think Bravissimo fits weird, but differently depending on the item, and it is that inconsistency that is so very frustrating.
My Biubiu shirts are a little stretchier, too, which means the fit is more forgiving. Monica- Oooh, that's great, I'm so glad I could help! I know that they would be happy to ship to you. You might want to go for the more expensive shipping option, but the price of the clothes makes up for it.
Kinga suggested trying 36bb, but I'm not sure if that wouldn't be too small - the lining is also very snug. Apparently size 36 should fit waists up to 65cm max and hips up to 95cm.
Personally I would try the smaller size, but I don't really have many opportunities to wear a dress like that. The hip measurement I suppose is for the widest place. I love biubiu too ; And you have beautiful cat ;. Oh my goodness, you look stunning in those clothes!
I'm on a very tight budgeet, so I think maybe when I have more money I'll have to try a shirt or two. You look absolutely gorgeous!!! And I'm writing this while having the same fuchsia long-sleeve top on: Thank you for your recommendations and praise, everyone! I think I will try the Madison dress and I will let you all know when I do and how it works for me! But bravissimos sizing chart is way off, according to that, me and my big tummy apple shaped would not even fit into the size 18 and I take a The polish companys clothing is doing the same thing, according to them, I would not fit into their clothing or would have to take a garment in a size 48 which is 20 in UK I think that would swamp my boobs.
I qish someone would even bother to write about us girls who does not get much attention because we are not hourglass but apple or other shapes, still big busts, still issues on the high street but not one company who wants to cater for us. Hi Lindana, I do think Biubiu is designed for hourglass shapes.
I found their size chart to be more accurate than Bravissimo's, according to it I would be between a 34 and 36, and 34 was perfect for me. The vanity sizing is frustrating for me because if you are on the low end like me, you get sized right out of the range.
I understand how it feels to have companies ignore you- I felt the same way, especially before discovering Bravissimo, because I am too small for most companies like Bravissimo. I would love to do a post addressing the apple shape issue, and maybe I could help draw attention to it and people could offer suggestions. I have also been planning on addressing some custom options for big busted ladies, which of course if you get custom then all fit issues you have are addressed at once.
Why can't you just wear clothes from the High Street? I know that here in the US there are companies like Lane Bryant that are "plus sized" but start at a size 12 US, so like a 16 UK and do have more room in the bust they are cut for a D cup as well as elsewhere.
The big problem for hourglasses is that our bust and waist are such far apart measurements, which doesn't seem like an issue for apple shapes? Also, please don't take this the wrong way empire waist maternity clothes will often have more room in the bust and then just sort of drape over the tummy. I've even worn one of these shirts before- I just sort of pulled in the waist a bit. Not the most flattering on me, but it might be an ok look on an apple? You are so pretty and have so great shape!
Can I ask how tall are you? I'm rather petite ; about 5'4" and it seams like BiuBiu clothes can be too long for me: I am about 5'9" or 5'10", so I am not surprised that Biubiu is long for you! It was great for me though, because I am used to things being too short. Unbelievable luck to find your blog! I have been searching and searching for a good fit as a 32H and have had disappointing luck with Trashy Diva - the waists all sit uncomfortably high on my ribcage, and two of mine have shrunk at the professional cleaners.
I'm super excited to try BiuBiu, and can't wait to get my hands on some of those dresses. Any insights on Madison, I'd appreciate, it looks great online. Thank you so much for spreading the word. I had a look at the BuiBui site last week and like you was blown away by the prices and the designs. I'm only 5'4" tall however so they may well be too long for me. I'm also an apple shape, with not much difference between hips and waist, but boobs are bigger then either.
The tailored dresses from Bravissimo in a 16SC fit me beautifully at the moment, despite being apple shaped, and make me look like I have lost weight which I have but the dresses make me look more hourglass than apple. I'm debating whether to try out some of the BuiBui items but the clingy material kind of puts me off.
What I do like however are the deeper, richer colours they use. All of the tops look great on you by the way: I got really excited about this has I have a tiny waist and a big bust, but when I went onto the website they appear to have changed their sizing chart from the one you have on this page. The smallest waist size 34 is now cm: Their research suggests that the invention of clothing may have coincided with the northward migration of modern Homo sapiens away from the warm climate of Africa , thought to have begun between 50, and , years ago.
However, a second group of researchers using similar genetic methods estimate that clothing originated around , years ago. Some human cultures, such as the various peoples of the Arctic Circle , traditionally make their clothing entirely of prepared and decorated furs and skins. Other cultures supplemented or replaced leather and skins with cloth: Although modern consumers may take the production of clothing for granted, making fabric by hand is a tedious and labor-intensive process involving fiber making, spinning, and weaving.
Different cultures have evolved various ways of creating clothes out of cloth. One approach simply involves draping the cloth. The clothes may simply be tied up dhoti and sari ; or pins or belts hold the garments in place kilt and sarong.
The cloth remains uncut, and people of various sizes can wear the garment. Another approach involves measuring, cutting, and sewing the cloth by hand or with a sewing machine. Clothing can be cut from a sewing pattern and adjusted by a tailor to the wearer's measurements.
An adjustable sewing mannequin or dress form is used to create form-fitting clothing. If the fabric is expensive, the tailor tries to use every bit of the cloth rectangle in constructing the clothing; perhaps cutting triangular pieces from one corner of the cloth, and adding them elsewhere as gussets.
Traditional European patterns for men's shirts and women's chemises take this approach. These remnants can also be reused to make patchwork hats, vests, and skirts. Modern European fashion treats cloth much less conservatively, typically cutting in such a way as to leave various odd-shaped cloth remnants. Industrial sewing operations sell these as waste; home sewers may turn them into quilts. In the thousands of years that humans have been making clothing, they have created an astonishing array of styles, many of which have been reconstructed from surviving garments, photos , paintings , mosaics , etc.
Costume history can inspire current fashion designers , as well as costumiers for plays , films , television , and historical reenactment. The mechanization of the textile industry made many varieties of cloth widely available at affordable prices. Styles have changed, and the availability of synthetic fabrics has changed the definition of "stylish". In the latter half of the 20th century, blue jeans became very popular, and are now worn to events that normally demand formal attire.
Activewear has also become a large and growing market. Jeans in the Western dress code are worn by both men and women. There are several unique styles of jeans found which include: The licensing of designer names was pioneered by designers like Pierre Cardin in the s and has been a common practice within the fashion industry from about the s. By the early years of the 21st century, western clothing styles had, to some extent, become international styles.
This process began hundreds of years earlier, during the periods of European colonialism. The process of cultural dissemination has perpetuated over the centuries as Western media corporations have penetrated markets throughout the world, spreading Western culture and styles. Fast fashion clothing has also become a global phenomenon. These garments are less expensive, mass-produced Western clothing.
Donated used clothing from Western countries are also delivered to people in poor countries by charity organizations. People may wear ethnic or national dress on special occasions or in certain roles or occupations. For example, most Korean men and women have adopted Western-style dress for daily wear, but still wear traditional hanboks on special occasions, like weddings and cultural holidays.
Items of Western dress may also appear worn or accessorized in distinctive, non-Western ways. A Tongan man may combine a used T-shirt with a Tongan wrapped skirt, or tupenu.
Most sports and physical activities are practiced wearing special clothing, for practical, comfort or safety reasons. Common sportswear garments include shorts , T-shirts , tennis shirts , leotards , tracksuits , and trainers. Specialized garments include wet suits for swimming , diving or surfing , salopettes for skiing and leotards for gymnastics. Also, spandex materials are often used as base layers to soak up sweat. Paris set the fashion trends for Europe and North America Women wore dresses all day, everyday.
Day dresses had a drop waist, which was a sash or belt around the low waist or hip and a skirt that hung anywhere from the ankle on up to the knee, never above.
Daywear had sleeves long to mid-bicep and a skirt that was straight, pleaded, hank hem, or tired. Jewelry was less conspicuous. In the 21st century a diverse range of styles exist in fashion, varying by geography, exposure to modern media, economic conditions, and ranging from expensive haute couture to traditional garb, to thrift store grunge. Fashion shows are events for designers to show off new and often extravagant designs.
Although mechanization transformed most aspects of human industry by the midth century, garment workers have continued to labor under challenging conditions that demand repetitive manual labor. Mass-produced clothing is often made in what are considered by some to be sweatshops , typified by long work hours, lack of benefits, and lack of worker representation.
While most examples of such conditions are found in developing countries , clothes made in industrialized nations may also be manufactured similarly. Coalitions of NGOs , designers including Katharine Hamnett, American Apparel , Veja , Quiksilver , eVocal, and Edun and campaign groups like the Clean Clothes Campaign CCC and the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights as well as textile and clothing trade unions have sought to improve these conditions as much as possible by sponsoring awareness-raising events, which draw the attention of both the media and the general public to the workers.
The MFA, which placed quotas on textiles imports, was deemed a protectionist measure. India for example has not ratified sections 87 and 92 of the treaty. Despite the strong reactions that "sweatshops" evoked among critics of globalization , the production of textiles has functioned as a consistent industry for developing nations providing work and wages, whether construed as exploitative or not, to many thousands of people.
The use of animal fur in clothing dates to prehistoric times. It is currently associated in developed countries with expensive, designer clothing, although fur is still used by indigenous people in arctic zones and higher elevations for its warmth and protection. Once uncontroversial, it has recently been the focus of campaigns on the grounds that campaigners consider it cruel and unnecessary. PETA , along with other animal rights and animal liberation groups have called attention to fur farming and other practices they consider cruel.
Clothing suffers assault both from within and without. The human body sheds skin cells and body oils, and exudes sweat, urine, and feces. From the outside, sun damage, moisture, abrasion, and dirt assault garments.
Fleas and lice can hide in seams. Worn clothing, if not cleaned and refurbished, itches, becomes outworn, and loses functionality as when buttons fall off, seams come undone, fabrics thin or tear, and zippers fail. Often, people wear an item of clothing until it falls apart.
Some materials present problems. Cleaning leather is difficult, and bark cloth tapa cannot be washed without dissolving it. Owners may patch tears and rips, and brush off surface dirt, but materials like these inevitably age. However, most clothing consists of cloth, and most cloth can be laundered and mended patching, darning , but compare felt. Humans have developed many specialized methods for laundering, ranging from early methods of pounding clothes against rocks in running streams, to the latest in electronic washing machines and dry cleaning dissolving dirt in solvents other than water.
Hot water washing boiling , chemical cleaning and ironing are all traditional methods of sterilizing fabrics for hygiene purposes. Many kinds of clothing are designed to be ironed before they are worn to remove wrinkles.
