MARVELL LANE experimented with different ways to naturally dye your favourite stained cotton and linen pieces. Our mediums of choice were avocado (which lift us with a delicate dusty pink hue) and onion (developed into a light brown)
Have you ever thought about how differently you would experience the world if your appearance changed? We are all aware of our own race, class, sexuality, gender and ability, however are you aware of the innate advantages your entitlements create?
It's one thing to fall pregnant and have your body go through a lot of changes, it's awhooooleother matter when you're already fuller-busted, your boobs get even bigger and your bra options become even more unappealing.
With this blog post, I've tried to summarise some of the maternity options for you.
In our latest IGTV Rachael and Hollie sit down to chat one busty woman to another. They explore the untold voice of busty women.We want to shine light on the fact that there are issues of discrimination that busty women face in society, purely because of their bust size.
The reality is that the choices a full busted woman makes regarding her presentation are dictated by the messages that society has filtered to both women and men.
In the light of International women's day, we feel called to share a message devoted to the mothers and daughters, to the entrepreneurs and friends, to the dreamers, the teachers, the leaders and each and every radiant woman of our community.
Our belief at MARVELL LANE is that being sustainable is not a trend, but rather a pledge to continue to develop and explore new ways to meet the demands of the present without compromising the livelihood of future generations and our environment.
Ladies, let me introduce to you the strapless bra to end all strapless bras for busty women. It's sexy (shock!), plunging (disbelief!) and dare-I-say-it - comfortable (you're lying!). You better believe it.
Jump on in and read a review of my favourite strapless bra written from the bottom of my very-busty heart!
Seeing my how body changed also changed how I felt about certain sports. I went from enjoying and excelling at gymnastics, to developing larger hips and breasts than many of the other girls. And I hated how I looked in a leotard. So I changed sport - even though I was still very proficient. I dropped gymnastics and dance and replaced them with new sporting challenges.
I chose sports where I could cover up my curves. Netball and touch football became my go-to activities. Yes, more running which was annoying for my fuller bust, but so much fun in the team environment. And more importantly? No. More. Leotards.
Does it annoy you when you see really photoshopped images? No, I'm not talking about fixing up some rogue fake tan marks either... I'm talking about the total eradication of features or elements on a person's body which you would see if you were looking at them in real life or a non-photoshopped image. As per usual, I have an opinion about this too. Have a read, have a rant, keep it friendly though... xx
Women have interests outside of fashion. Not that you can tell this from the general marketing aimed at women every day... That being said, the online world is a brilliant space where so much quality content is being produced by women, for women. My favourite magazine, Collective Hub was, and is, a major source of inspiration for me starting my swimwear line. The magazine is a brilliant starting point for anyone thinking of venturing out on their own... Enjoy. Love, Rach. xx
Marvell Lane loves to celebrate the Feminine Form. Curves, cellulite, stretch marks and all that goes with being a woman! This blog post is not about big boobs, it is about the Feminine Form and how mainstream media perpetuates its insidious grasp on telling us how we should all look... Oh, but if you have big boobs and want to buy our bikinis, then even better, you can do that too!
