Freya Fancies Bralette: Full Bust and Fancy Free

Bralettes have surged in popularity in recent times and it’s interesting to wonder why.  With fashion magazines declaring that cleavage is dead, could it mean that no one cares for the push up and plunge effect anymore?  Perhaps it’s the eradication of confining under-wiring that’s becoming more acceptable, or maybe it’s just we want to feel comfortable and wear what the heck we like?   Whatever the reason for the current interest, there’s no denying bralettes are the most delicate and prettiest pieces

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

Kinky Knickers : Lace Lingerie With A British Heart

Kinky Knickers first appeared on the blog three years ago when the company behind the brand – Headen & Quarmby – were starring in their own tv programme.  The Nottingham based lace factory were making Britain proud again – and quality lacy knickers were their crowning glory. Since then, Kinky Knickers have gone on to expand their range.  While the parent company introduced a second brand, vintage inspired loungewear Ella & Me (which I explored in this post)

Freya Deco Delight: The Loungewear

Shopping for lingerie can be a challenge, so finding sleepwear to fit a big bust is a task in its own right.  Who even knew you could buy pyjamas specially for big boobs?   For me, it’s always been one of those things to bear in mind whatever clothing I’ve gone on the look out for.  Outerwear or sleepwear, I’ve always got to make sure there’s enough boob room for comfort.  In bed I like my clothes to

Modern Thermals for a Snug & Sexy Winter

If you’re anything like me – an icicle in the slightest breeze – cold weather is the malevolent enemy.  Being adverse to arctic temperatures is one thing, but suffering the throes of poor circulation, or Raynaud’s in my case, makes this time of year every bit unbearable. Even if you’re not at risk of a painful Raynaud’s attack, it’s important to keep your body warm when it’s cold.  Winter layering in woolly knits can sometimes be a

Madame Supertrash Luxe Lingerie | Lace Cami

Madame Supertrash made great waves at the UK Lingerie Awards, achieving finalist recognition in both the Boudoir Lingerie brand category and New Designer of the Year.  The success of 2013 may have been only the beginning of the luxe lingerie label but with a designer pedigree behind it, Supertrash’s baby, Madame Supertrash had already staked it’s claim within the attainable luxury bracket. With bra sizes European 70-85 (UK 32-38) A-E Madame Supertrash marginally broaches the D+ market.  Whilst

Passionata – What They Offer The DD+

Passionata is one of those brands that even if you’ve never bought from the brand, you’ll most certainly have heard of them.  Stunning Bar Refaeli is the representing body for French lingerie label, Passionata, and I’ve long been a fan of the campaigns. The photos from each collection are always visually appealing with a strong pin up vibe.  The final edits are highly emphasised on bold colour palettes complimentary to the image theme while poses
