Warm up This Raynaud’s Awareness Month

It’s just about the end of Winter yet we’re still bracing relatively arctic conditions.  With an icy chill in the air and snow threatening to fall at every moment, it’s apt that February has been Raynaud’s Awareness Month. I’ve often spoken about my personal Raynaud’s experience and how it affects me: walking on numb soles, trying to make use of stiff fingers (even indoors) and crying in acute pain from within my bra.  Without any exaggeration, Raynaud’s is

Pretty in Pink: Freya Fifi

One of the best things about February is the promise of impending Spring, and with that hope comes forth an array of lighter, prettier lingerie collections. Freya launched a capsule of delicate feminine lingerie in time for mid-month Valentine’s Day, and I was offered to pick from the new sets including Fifi, Deco Charm and Siren.  Having brought Deco Darling and, similar to Siren, Ooh La La, recently to the blog, I decided to opt for

Exotic Prismatic | Cleo ‘Maya’

Animal print made a massive return in 2014 as one of the hottest trends, and this year its popularity looks set to continue.  But, no longer is the design limited to the natural shades of exotic felines; this season leopard print turns up the volume with a kaleidoscope of colour. Funky and fresh brand, Cleo by Panache, is bringing their already vibrant Maya back with a brighter, prismatic neon colourway.  SS15’s Maya features a whirlpool of deep magenta pink, zesty orange

Are Large Cups Losing Out to Sexy Smalls?

The full bust market today is a far cry from the era when big bras meant granny chic.  Its easy to forget how far we’ve come; from specialist catalogues with their limited sizes where full cups meant large bands too, D+ lingerie is now commonplace in the supermarket as it is in many high street stores.  We’re living in the day where full bust bras are finally recognised as the norm. Though there’s an abundance of youthful, modern

Luxe Lace | Miss Mandalay ‘Amelie’

Luxury lingerie is a treat worthy of investment for when you want to feel your best wearing less.  Quality independent labels take pride in what they produce which means a fine garment worth treasuring and enjoying.  Here in Britain we have some of the best kept secrets in lingerie, and contemporary boutique brand Miss Mandalay is one of those treasures. Miss Mandalay have a strong fan base who adore the luxury aesthetic and sound fit

Shapely Sheer | Curvy Kate ‘Bardot’

Bras for large busts have come on leaps and bounds in recent years with brands, new and old, recognising the demand for gorgeous, young and sexy lingerie.  But, while there’s plenty choice on the market there’s still a certain style that many brands struggle to produce: the super sheer soft cup. There are obvious obstacles replicating the styles often designed for smaller sizes since big boobs need substantial support, and thin fabrics by their nature can

Flamingo Gifts Birthday Parcel

Coming into February is good times all round.  Not only have we survived the testing conditions of January but Spring is within hopping distance, and for me, I get to celebrate my birthday! This week is proving to be a fun lead up to my big day on Sunday.  I was excited to hear from Flamingo Gifts who I’d been following on Twitter, and they wanted to send me some goodies.  It felt like an early birthday treat!

Coppafeel! Shower Hijack

Coppafeel! has been making serious waves in the media ever since founder Kris Hallenga was diagnosed with breast cancer at the ever so young age of 23.  The reason for the charity’s birth: to eradicate the misleading belief that breast cancer only affects older women, and to spread the word that familiarity with our own boobs is the way forward in combating the non discriminate disease. Last year Coppafeel! brought boobs to the people, with billboards and magazines
