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

Cake Maternity ‘Croissant’ Nursing Bra

Now my regular lingerie is well and truly put to bed, my quest for the most amazing maternity bra remains at large.  I can count on one hand my new found favourites but a couple of bras aren’t going to see me through my entire pregnancy – and they’re most likely not going to fit forever.  So as my bust grows, so must my maternity wardrobe.

Maternity lingerie can be a case of ‘needs must’.  Not everyone relishes the idea of wearing it with many women reluctantly choosing the pregnancy bra out of necessity.  So, it’s fair to say maternity bras have a poor reputation for being frumpy and ugly.

I have to admit, back when I was watching the Poundshop Wars tv series it had me scoffing at the idea of a pound bra.   I was already decided, there was no way such a cheap bra could be any good, not for a fuller bust anyway.  Bras are complicated beasts for a reason: they have a big job to fulfil, and a good supportive fit doesn’t requires technical skill that doesn’t come cheap.  

Baby Boudoir: Blogging Through Pregnancy

After a tense few months of anxiety and nausea, earlier this week I was finally able to share some exciting news – I’m pregnant!  If you’ve been following the blog for a while you’ll know why I’d be nervous this time around, when a year ago I suffered a missed miscarriage.  But things seem to be going really well, we’ve had a healthy scan and now as I come to the end of the first

Cake Lingerie | Maternity Macaroon

When I think of maternity lingerie, my thoughts immediately picture dowdy mail order catalogues boasting industrial size nursing bras in chintzy cotton.  I think that’s the part of motherhood that brings me out in a cold sweat, the idea that once your pregnant, that’s it, all the feminine – sexual – side of you is evaporated in the instant you don a frumpy Auntie Fanny bra.   I’m 32 this year and more than well
