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

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

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)

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,

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

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

Cleo Della For Feisty Fuller Busts

I’m loving what the lingerie industry is offering the fuller bust consumer these days but I can happily admit that it’s an area guilty of pigeon holing.  Heaps of ‘grown up’ looking lingerie can feel overwhelming, and frankly, boring.  Whoever said a larger busted gal can’t have the same fun that’s too often reserved for the sub Ds? So when a brand brings out a design that is everything a twee bra isn’t, I love it!  Cleo by Panache are

SS16 Botanicals: Lepel Lilly Strawberry Print

In a world where lingerie can be overly provocative and femininity is rolled out in lace, it’s so uplifting when a collection comes along that’s simply fun.   The Lilly set by Lepel is one of the brand’s most popular styles; a t-shirt friendly moulded cup in a trend-led fashion design.  This time around, fun strawberry print Lilly is colourful and fresh with a vibrant hedgerow strawberry design – just the ticket to blow away the winter cobwebs.
