Katherine Hamilton Intimates: Louise Collection

Wearing functional maternity bras for months on end can be such a bore.  After what certainly felt like going on a year, I couldn’t wait to pack away the nursing bras and get back into regular underwear.   Following the birth I continued to wear my comfy bras but to my horror I found my regular bras no longer fit.  Childbirth may have been done and dusted but my pre-birth body was still around.  Now I surely needed more

Acqua & Sale Swimwear: Ponza Exotica

Trends by nature lead from the catwalk down to the highstreet, so designer brands at the luxury end of the market tend to be at the forefront of bringing wearable, covetable fashion.   I remember the front cover of a glossy magazine last summer where a super model was wearing an amazing two-piece; its botanical pattern leapt out at me.  It was bold yet delicate and pretty, and I vowed I needed it in my life.

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

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

Gossard Radiance: The VIP Swarovski Range

When was the last time you bought lingerie just because it looked good?  Buying based on looks is something we do all the time – aesthetics is everything – but sometimes the sexiest bra is blown out of the water by something more beautiful, more extravagant.   Most often set aside for a rare special occasion, this type of lingerie is more decadent, and oh, how fantastic it makes you feel! Gossard‘s VIP line is

San Francisco Silk by Andrés Intimates

Luxury lingerie is a guilty pleasure for many.  Whether it’s a perfectly crafted aesthetic or covetable brand status that gets the pulse racing, indulgent lingerie will always have a place on our wish list. Premium fabrics increase the desirability of lingerie tenfold, and silk is widely considered one of the most sumptuous luxuries.  But did you know that silk has a standard scale much like cotton’s threadcount?  A garment not disclosing its silk momme weight is worth walking away from.

Bridal Solutions: Freya Deco Darling

Spring is the most popular season for tying the knot, and no surprise why.  It’s light, bright and full of new beginnings, with the Spring blooms and blossom making the most popular months of May and June the prettiest time to marry. The bridal gown is one of the biggest focal points of a wedding, but while all eyes are on the dress, there’s a whole lot of unseen mystery beneath the raw silk and lace. Bridal
