High Waist Briefs: Kinky Knickers Norma Jeane

I know many of you love a high waist brief.  The retro aesthetic and comfort fit can be hard to resist, and I must admit, right now I’m all about big knickers.  Although normally I tend to prefer a lower cut brief, especially a high leg or shortie, pregnancy has certainly changed it for me.  I’m not ashamed to say I’m much preferring a big pair of pants as my bump grows, simply because they’re down right comfy.   So you

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

Parfait Darlene in Serenity ‘Summer Blue’

Lingerie is having a blue moment, and it’s every inch a cheerful affair.  Colour authority, Pantone, has selected a whimsical theme for 2016 naming not one but two colours of the year, with powder blue Serenity (alongside blush Rose Quartz) headlining the most desirable colours. Serenity blue, with its soothing tranquil tones, reminiscent of fresh Spring mornings and sunlit bluebells, has been picked up by trend responsive lingerie brands already.  New season collection, Darlene, by Parfait is introduced in

Freya Lingerie : A Botanical Utopia

A new season is approaching; a time for new beginnings and wardrobe revival.  While we’re still only in February and it isn’t quite the time to shed our winter woolies just yet, our lingerie drawers are ready for something a little more spring-like. Right in the midst of back to back crazy weather storms (are you fed up with this wind and rain as I am?!) Freya’s latest lingerie drop kicks winter in its snowballs.  Utopia is Freya’s bright and

Playful Promises Fuller Busted | Playful Portia

It was my very first lingerie themed modelling shoot six years ago when Playful Promises came into my line of sight.  Then I found myself wearing the brand when I won the Hepburn and Leigh modelling competition in 2014, and since then I’ve accumulated something of a collection.  You could say I have a soft spot for them and you wouldn’t be far wrong.   While my most covetable pieces include their corsets and frilly knickers, its not been for the lack

Oroblu Push Up Shaping Leggings

Leggings play an integral part in my wardrobe – they’re a versatile style of legwear that, in my opinion, have unfairly earned a low grade reputation.  Leggings are great!  Like tights, but thicker and occasionally quite clever. The Push Up Leggings from Italian brand Oroblu‘s Shaper range demonstrates one of those rare encounters, when the conventional collides with science. This is another of my products gifted from UK Tights that I chose myself.  I’m used to wearing a basic cotton legging,
