"The Best Thing I've Ever Bought"
Stylist's digital entertainment guru Kayleigh Dray shares the one purchase that brings her immense joy

"Never did I ever believe that my G-cup boobs would be able to enjoy the freedom of a bralette – until I discovered Curvy Kate's In My Dreams style. It was during the height of lockdown, everyone was throwing their underwired bras to the wind, and I was desperate to join them. Unable to get to the shops, I booked a virtual appointment with Curvy Kate's self-dubbed Bra Whisperer, and was immediately impressed when she guessed my bra size just by looking at me. Over Zoom, no less. From that moment, I was hers. And so, when she recommended I give this bralette a go, I couldn't give her my money fast enough.

And reader, let me tell you that I wasn't disappointed: it's comfortable, it's supportive, and it keeps everything in place without any of the restrictions or accidental stabbings that occur with a classic underwired bra. It also comes with an extra-special 'boob separator' to keep them in their respective cups, not to mention prevent any of the unfortunate rubbing that comes hand-in-hand with so many other bralettes. I sleep in it, I wear it when I'm WFH, and… well, pretty much everywhere else. Basically, if you have large boobs, you need this bralette. Fair warning, though: once you put it on, you'll never be able to go back to the old-school lingerie you wore before…" £32, curvykate.com

This heartwarming-yet-heartbreaking slavery-era novel is a testament to the power of love

Soaring hope and crushing disappointment. They are the two sides of the coin that repeatedly flips throughout River Sing Me Home (Headline), starting with Barbadian slave Rachel being told by her master that Britain has decreed an end to slavery, and she is free. Except she can't leave the sugarcane plantation – and the only life she's ever known – because the slaves are now 'apprentices' who, by law, have to continue working there for six years. But after a life of suffering, something in Rachel snaps and she flees, determined to use her stolen freedom to find her five surviving children who were sold against her will. And so, a plucky heroine is born as she travels throughout Barbados, British Guiana and Trinidad on a mission to reunite her family.

"As debut novelist Eleanor Shearer – the granddaughter of Windrush immigrants – writes in her author's note, 'This is not a book about slavery – it is a book about what comes after it'," says Stylist Loves editor Gemma Crisp. "Inspired by true stories of former slaves tracking down children who were forcibly taken from them, Rachel's fictional journey of grit and perseverance – accompanied by a side dish of luck – as she discovers the varied fates of Micah, Mercy, Mary Grace, Cherry Jane and Thomas Augustus is both heartwarming and heartbreaking, and at its core, a testament to the power of love. Despite the serious subject matter, this is a pacy novel whose main characters will stay with you long after you finish the last page." £18.99, Bookshop.org
