Katherine Hamilton Intimates: Louise Collection

Wearing functional maternity bras for months on end can be such a bore.  After what certainly felt like going on a year, I couldn’t wait to pack away the nursing bras and get back into regular underwear.   Following the birth I continued to wear my comfy bras but to my horror I found my regular bras no longer fit.  Childbirth may have been done and dusted but my pre-birth body was still around.  Now I surely needed more

Cake Maternity ‘Croissant’ Nursing Bra

Now my regular lingerie is well and truly put to bed, my quest for the most amazing maternity bra remains at large.  I can count on one hand my new found favourites but a couple of bras aren’t going to see me through my entire pregnancy – and they’re most likely not going to fit forever.  So as my bust grows, so must my maternity wardrobe. In 2016 we’re actually pretty lucky to have the choice that

The Pound Shop Bra: Full Bust Friend of Foe?

I have to admit, back when I was watching the Poundshop Wars tv series it had me scoffing at the idea of a pound bra.   I was already decided, there was no way such a cheap bra could be any good, not for a fuller bust anyway.  Bras are complicated beasts for a reason: they have a big job to fulfil, and a good supportive fit doesn’t requires technical skill that doesn’t come cheap.  

Anita Paisley Pregnancy Bra

Pregnancy makes boobs crazy, and it starts right from the first trimester.  The past twelve weeks have taken a painful turn, leaving me vulnerable to sensitivities.  While a few of my regular bras are still comfortably wearable, softer and more gently supportive, maternity specific bras have certainly brought a new kind of relief in this season of tenderness.   Despite feeling fuller in the bra department, I’ve not massively grown, which is very much okay with me.

Curvy Kate Portia: Pretty In Pink

If you took a look through my lingerie stash you’d probably be surprised by what I own.  ‘Basics’ in black, white and skin tone are considered the mainstay of any underwear collection, but a neutral colour palette just isn’t my cup of tea.  While some of my essentials are, out of necessity, pretty basic, I find colourful lingerie so much more fun.  Sounds kinda corny, but I feel like I’m wearing the essence of happiness when my bra’s an

Cleo Skye : Zesty Summer Sorbet

I like my lingerie to be two things: reliable and mood reflecting.  And of course that opens up to a whole plethora of styles and colours, which makes lingerie so complex and, importantly, fun! Summer is a great time to expand your lingerie collection if you like your underwear bright and breezy as you can always count on gorgeously wearable styles in light hearted prints and cheerful colours.   Cleo‘s newest line – Skye – oozes

Gossard Luscious Blush Rose Quartz

No colour trend has been more lingerie fitting than this year’s Colour of the Year scheme by Pantone.  And there’s not one, but two colours for 2016: Serenity Blue, and the delicately pretty Rose Quartz. What makes Rose Quartz such a gorgeous colour to wear is its warmth and softness.  It’s a hue that’s neither true pink nor peach, but like rose gold, emanates a radiant sunkissed glow.   Gossard‘s latest lingerie collection, Luscious, is true to the trend,

Gossard Entice | Floral Bloom and Sheer Delight

I always look forward to seeing Gossard’s latest collections.  They’re one of the most most worldwide recognised lingerie brands and it’s all because of their trend led aesthetics and accessibility.   This is true for many other D-G friendly brands too but Gossard have something that’s unique to them only: something intangible but quantified by thrill. Following Gossard‘s sumptuous winter season of ample lace and decadence, it paved the way for the early SS16 collections, with Entice stepping in with
