Cosy Hosiery | Falke Soft Merino & Cotton Tights

Now that we’re moving toward October, my outfits are taking a decidedly Autumnal feel.  Even throughout our abysmal Summer, leggings had become too much of a lazy staple in my wardrobe, and to be frank, I’m bored with them.  Tights are suddenly interesting again so I’ve been treating myself to some new warm hosiery.   When UKTights approached me recently it was really good timing, because it meant I had this fantastic opportunity to consider a range of brands I otherwise wouldn’t

Autumnal Jewels | Freya Hero Plunge Bra

Autumn is just the best time to exploit extravagance and luxury.  Through a palette of rich colour and sumptuous fabrics, this season’s lingerie glorifies the jewels of the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. This month Freya has introduced new collection, Hero, in a juicy Berry colourway, as well as classic black.  Hero is surely set to be a Freya favourite, not least because it’s available from a 28 back and up to a K cup, but it’s

Autumnal Jewels | Panache Olivia Balcony Bra

September is an exciting time of the year, Autumn begins to close in and a new lease of lingerie life bursts forth from our favourite brands’ AW15 collections. This season’s lingerie drop takes us on a trip through a jewel encrusted kaleidoscope, where an abundance of precious gem colour and fruity shades come to the fore.  Autumn’s lingerie is intoxicating. Panache have responded well to the theme, with a Deep Jade colour revival of glamour-puss Olivia.  This is one gorgeous collection

Feline Fancy | Parfait Kitty Babydoll

There was once a time when babydolls were considered quite old fashioned, but in recent years the graceful lingerie garment has made a trend u-turn.  Now the fuller bust market is increasingly trend led, brands are offering more than the basic bra, and babydolls are the latest lingerie candy. Babydolls are flirty and fun, and as such a popular favourite for nightwear.  Many women like to sleep in a bra, so the benefit of wearing a babydoll to bed is

Wonderbra Glam Part Two: The Cleavage

When the Wonderbra Glam was released it took the iconic lingerie label into boudoir territory.  Boasting a more luxurious aesthetic with a vintage feel, the Glam’s sumptuous design offered a new take on sexy femininity. This month I had the opportunity to take a closer look at Wonderbra’s Glam range; firstly the balconette bra, and now the latest style: Glam Cleavage, which I’m going to compare with the former. Moving away from the balcony shape, Glam Cleavage takes on the best

Wonderbra Glam Part One: The Balconette

Wonderbra is probably the most well known lingerie label thanks to their iconic 90’s ‘Hello Boys’ campaign.  The brand has a reputation for the sexiest lingerie, and with bras boasting serious cleavage enhancing design, it’s safe to say Wonderbra is the world’s biggest boob booster.   Wonderbra have ample collections to their name these days, with provocative and feisty aesthetics to suit a variety of shapes and sizes up to a G cup.  One of their

My Grazia Loneliness Story: A Year On

A year ago I revealed myself to the world.  Sharing my most shaded secret with Grazia magazine, I confessed probably the biggest social taboo of today: I had no friends. Having struggled half my life with post traumatic stress following an assault at 16, I’d reached the point where my social anxieties had sectioned me to a friend-less life.  Had it not been for my fiance at my side, I would have had nobody, but even though we were
