Royce Maternity: Floral ‘Florence’ Nursing Bra

Maternity lingerie can be too beige.  Don’t get me wrong, beige has its place, it’s fantastic when you want a neutral colour that won’t show through your clothes.  But sometimes neutral, basic colours don’t cut it, and maternity underwear can be guilty of being so niche, it appears brands are almost too afraid to make a fashion statement with it.  The way I see it?  I shouldn’t have to change my lingerie personality just because I’m

Maternity Wear: The Water Birth Wardrobe

Preparing the birth plan for my fast approaching due date, I’ve decided a water birth sounds ideal for me.  I don’t cope with pain particularly well and have a long suffering history of painful periods and chronic pain, so all the positive stories I keep reading about water births encourage me to give this method a go.   Even though an epidural previously sounded the most obvious choice, I began to realise it wasn’t going to address all the

Cake Maternity ‘Apricot Sorbet’ Plus Size Bra

My maternity journey is proving to be the most transformative season of my life, right after puberty.  If not only for the scarily impending responsibility motherhood will soon heap onto my shoulders, but the constant daily change I’m seeing in my body as I head toward that goal.  Before pregnancy, I would never have understood the supernatural feeling of a growing tummy containing a strange, kicking being inside, and all the erratic hormones and aches and pains would have remained

Playful Promises Mariela : A Full Bust Lust

‘Good things come to those who wait’ said someone once, and they were right.  Anticipate the release of an exciting new collection and it’ll feel a lifetime of agony, but when it’s launched the reward is sweet.  Few full bust lingerie lines offer enough to be genuinely thrilling and Playful Promises is one of those special gems.   Playful Promises‘ fuller bust DD-G range keeps managing to arouse attention amongst lingeristas.  With exotic details and sumptuous fabric oozing

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.  

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
