Alice in Wonderland opens in UK cinemas tomorrow, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Alice’s adventures after another tumble down the rabbit hole get the mad-cap Tim Burton treatment. Sounds like the sort of mindless escapism we can all do with in our lives… I’ll be going for sure.

The film provides the theme for SBBH’s very first caption competition (details of how to enter below) — the fabulous prize for which has been offered by the lovely people at Lailides, the specialists in petite size lingerie (from AA-cup to B-cup). If you don’t know about Lailides, check out my recent post and find them on Facebook and Twitter.

The Coppelia lingerie set could be yours

The Prize: Made from sheer mesh fabric and trimmed with French lace, Lailides Coppelia bra is simple and sophisticated. The soft-cup, triangle style is like a second skin, ideal for everyday wear. Available in sizes 1-4 (see size chart). This exclusive prize package teams the bra with the Coppelia thong, available in S/M or M/L (see size chart): I am reliably told it’s the most comfortable G-string you’ll ever wear.  The winner will receive this gorgeous luxury lingerie set, worth $70, in black, in the size of their choice.

Picture caption? YOU DECIDE!

HOW TO WIN

Check out this picture of Anne Hathaway looking a little pasty as the White Queen. Inexplicably (if you haven’t seen the film), she’s eyeballing a mouse. Not much to read in her expression, so who knows what she’s trying to say to her rodent friend. If you can think of a caption to go with this picture, please comment on this post with your suggestion. On Friday April 2nd, the competition will close and the best caption will be selected. Its author will become the owner of a beautiful Lailides lingerie set.

The Isabella bra, £51, Mint Siren

Mint Siren is a womenswear label created and owned by Swedish designer Josefine Wing. She describes the line as having a retro flavour.

I’d like to clarify that, in this instance, the word ‘retro’ means opulent vintage — and is entirely without a hint of grunge or a whiff of mothball.

Retro cues include 50′s style high-waisted knickers, girdle panties and cinched-in corsets. Far from being derivative, Wing’s designs are fresh and daring: confections of silk chiffon and luxurious satin with bows, ruffles and rich velvet trims; Peep-hole panties, silk satin romper suits and open-cup bras.

The flamboyant style and quality of production, says Wing, attracts a following of women with a passion for extravagance and luxurious fabrics.

So what does Mint Siren have to offer small-busted women? We’re not exactly the classic 50′s hourglass shape after all.

Josefine Wing says, “We offer a lot of styles that work for small cup sizes. I’d say that the triangle bra’s are generally the best. In the current range I recommend the size S Isabella silk chiffon bra — the cups are gathered, so it’s great for creating a bit of volume.

The Emma bra, £69.50, Mint Siren (courage not included)

“For those who’d like show off the fact that they can do without a bra, I’d suggest the Emma open-cup bra, which uses elastic to frame the breast area and can be worn with or without pasties. This bra really is a homage to small boobs, a sexy alternative to a cupped version. The message it gives is: I’ve got small boobs and I love it!”

Are you ready to give an open-cup bra a go?
