May 2016 B about YOU

Illustration Week 02- 01Hi there!

Before we wish upon a new year, I want to wish you, on behalf of everyone at Buttercups, a most spectacular new year. A time for new hopes, renewed plans of conquering it all and most importantly, being truly happy, without conditions and expectations.

Being yourself is no easy feat and I hope we break new ground, move forward and accept ourselves for who we are. After all, it starts from “me”. So, in 2016, lets smile when we look in the mirror, vow to love ourselves just the way we are, walk tall because we own the world and be there for ourselves. All in all, B YOU and be proud of it.

As one of my favourite authors, T.S Eliot once said,

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

Wishing you a happy new year and the most joyous of new beginnings.

As I have gushed earlier, our drop dead gorgeous new lingerie collection is now out. Lush, dark colors are adorned with bold lace in an ode to old days, where icons like Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn spun a dreamy charm upon our collective conscience.

The colors chosen for this collection are Indigo, Sepia and Vine. Why these particular colours, you ask? Let me tell you, I have always kept the Indian woman’s unique skin tone top of mind at Buttercups. When I set about designing the new range, I wanted to have colors that would be both bold and yet compliment the Indian woman’s ethos. Enter Vine, Indigo & Sepia. (more…)

Underwired Bras: Yay or Nay?

Print

Every woman, at some point in her life or perhaps daily, has wondered while wearing an underwired bra, is this really necessary? We can confidently say, yes it is! Underwired bras are definitely better for support and overall control over your chest than soft cup bras are.

I hear endless complaints about how an underwired bra feel like B-prison. Well, they don’t have to! The first thing you need to do is find your correct size. Wearing the right sized underwired bra will make all the difference in how you feel in it during the day. A major point to keep in mind is the quality of underwire of the bra. When picking an underwired bra style, try to twist and turn  the wire gently. If it moulds easily without a lot of strength, you’ve got a winner! If it’s hard and does not, put it aside. At Buttercups, I ensure we use the most flexible yet strong wires, to ensure comfort and great support. (more…)
