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

Mamalicious Maternity : Cathy Tikka Coat

Good maternity clothing isn’t the easiest to find.  While many of the highstreet fashion stores carry maternity lines, they’re typically quite limited, and I’ll admit I’ve not had the best of luck finding exactly what I want.  Being a winter mummy-to-be means that I not only need to buy bump friendly versions of my favourite clothes, but invest in a pregnancy friendly coat too – not the simplest of tasks so I’ve found.   When Yummy Mummy

Wedding OOTD: The Lindy Bop Bride Haul

They say the fun is all in the wedding dress shopping, and it’s true!  While I had a vague idea what type of dress I wanted to wear on my big day, I had a fantastic time Pinteresting ideas for my dream dress, and I found it pretty quick.  But as much time I spent dress hunting I’m pretty sure I spent even longer shopping everything else in my wedding wardrobe.  A personalised vintage style became my

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,

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

Maison Close ‘Hotel Diva’ Teddy

Growing into my pregnancy body is proving a challenge already; bras aren’t fitting as they did a week before, and everything feels a bit… tight.  Even though my body’s changing and getting bigger for an amazing reason, it doesn’t mean I don’t sometimes feel a bit frumpy.  Feeling shabby about yourself at an important time of your life is just not right, so wearing clothing – and indeed lingerie – that makes you feel extra special is top of
