Boudoir Buys

I’m a true boudoir girl.  Not only do I love modelling the boudoir genre and have a passion for gorgeous lingerie, I adore all things beautiful to prettify the bedroom.  The current trend for vintage inspired looks combined with shabby chic French and country themes makes acquiring the boudoir look really easy.   I enjoy shopping for quirky and feminine things, with so many goodies on my wish list! Here’s some of my current lust

Review – Masquerade Amira

Following my discovery of Masquerade’s Rosa bra I was keen to look at this brand further and I was delighted to be given the chance to check out exquisite Amira, S/S ’12s new addition to the Masquerade family.  What a star she is! Masquerade Amira – ad campaign Amira is an exotic beauty fabricated in a sensuous satin that feels like silk to the touch.  The colour is very dusky, a powdery silver lavender – or

Review – Masquerade Rosa

Okay, I’m a little behind the times with this one because Masquerade’s Rosa is sadly now unavailable but I was lucky to lay my hands on this bra when it appeared in Figleaves’ eBay store (never again, more about that later) and I wanted to share my experience with it. Masquerade Rosa I have to be honest, I’ve been struggling to find a bra I’m totally happy with and I was beginning to lose hope.

Lingerie Love – Charlie Girl Lingerie and Cleo

Ever since my first foray into the online world in the year 2000 I’ve been transfixed by the allure of shopping online and even to this day, I, like many people, are still enjoying the buzz and convenience of buying over the internet.  With so many online stores at the tap of a key lingerie shopping can be a minefield and finding the right one – which for me means a shop that sells 28GGs

Sports Bra Review – Freya Active 30GG

Anyone who plays a form of sport or likes to keep fit knows it’s imperative to wear a good bra.  Whether you have a small bust or fuller boobs, a well fitting and supportive purpose made sports bra is necessary for the health of your boobs and ultimately, your comfort.  With the 2012 London Olympics just around the corner, we’re all thinking more about sport this year! In my lingerie stash I have a few

Bras I Wish I Owned – But Can’t

Don’t you just hate it when you come across an image of a really gorgeous got-to-buy-it-now bra only to find out it’s from a past season and you can no longer buy it anywhere?  Or when you find an amazing bra in a lingerie shop only to find it doesn’t come in your size?  How annoying!  I feel like this just keeps happening to me and I have to admit it’s one of the most

Bravissimo Fitting & Freya Review

Following a bad relationship with my 32F/FF bras and a brief encounter with some 30Gs I found myself pounding the high street of my local big-ish town of Darlington in an attempt to find a good retailer with sound fitting advice.  I soon realised this was a far bigger and more complex problem I had on my hands when I kept coming up against shops that were shocked at my question: if they stocked 28

Lingerie Review | Boux Avenue Brodie

Boux Avenue are a relatively new lingerie brand to the UK market having just celebrated their first birthday.  We have very few high street lingerie retailers who sell only their own brand, and with the loss of many La Senza stores a new chain has been much needed.  Having not purchased from Boux Avenue before I’ve been intrigued to find out just what makes them so different.I received a beautiful package from Boux Avenue a week
