We’re Sian & Char, UK lingerie blogger extraordinaires!
Big Cup Little Cup is our documentation of the lingerie, loungewear, swimwear, hosiery and shapewear we own, how it fits us, upcoming trend reports, lingerie wishlists, brand spotlights and more. Our blog is always lighthearted and accessible, but we like to keep a focus on ethical and sustainable fashion, independent brands and body positivity.
We strive to feature diverse women of all shapes and sizes to spread the message that beautiful and well-fitting lingerie is for everyone. Amongst our Big Cup and Little Cup reviews, you’ll find reviews from friends and family members in a range of sizes – our Guest Cups.
But you probably want to know a bit about us first!
I’m Sian and I’m the Big Cup to Char’s Little Cup. I’ve been blogging for almost 7 years now at Rebel Angel, my personal style blog – you could say I’m a little bit blogging obsessed! Once I realised my obsession with pretty lingerie had gone way beyond the occasional here and there lingerie reviews I was publishing at Rebel Angel, we decided the best solution would be another blog that was entirely lingerie focused. And here we are!
So you’ll be seeing a lot of me here, literally. Sometimes I will be lacking in clothing so I can prove to you just how important a well fitting bra is. And to start that off, here’s my story. Little do my readers know that once upon a time I was fitted into a 34D. Then I was told I was a 30F and I’ve never looked back. In fact, it soon became clear a 30F wasn’t quite right so you’ll now find me wearing a 28GG or 30G.
My mission is to get as many people as possible feeling comfortable in their bras and give advice to those with smaller backs and bigger busts just like me. There will be a lot of reviews along the way and we will be going stealthily undercover in the underworld of lingerie all for the sake of a well fitting bra.
You’ll soon find out that in the world of properly fitted bras, a 28GG and 30D really aren’t uncommon at all.
I’m Char, 30D – not your average Bra Blogger.
This whole magical escapade began one dark and stormy night, in an isolated cottage in the middle of the Peak District (don’t worry, this isn’t going to turn into an axe-murderer story). After some wine and cider, Sian and I got round to our usual favourite game – talk about things our respective boys will moan about us talking about. This evening’s delight: underwear! To cut a long story short, Sian ended up wrestling my clothes off me, and tying me up in her 28-backed-bra (which, I insisted, would not fit. Fo Sho. I’d been a 34 back for as long as I could remember – all hail the M&S sizing system … aka whatever bra I fit into in M & S. That is also on sale). Lo and behold – it fit! Well, it fit my back, with the cups hovering about a metre away from my actual boobs.
So Sian converted me into a disciple for her bra-related-rampage. Always a sucker for a good cause and healthy dose of activism, I signed on all guns blazing, once a suitably hilarious pun had been created for the title of this blog. I’m not a fashion blogger – I’m just a regular girl, looking for a regular bra, and asking it to love me (please get the Nottinghill reference here, otherwise that’s just going to be plain darn embarrassing). So we shall negotiate the perilous world of underwear for you – suss out the shit, get down and dirty with the measurements, and review a whole load of undies – all for your reading pleasure.
So hello, readers. My name is Char, and I’m a 34B. Or so I thought …
