Cake Sugar Candy: The Fuller Bust Comfort Bras

If you’re still hunting for the perfect comfort bra, today you can call off the search.  Whether you’re after a nursing bra, sleep bra or just a really comfy wire-free bra for everyday wear,  I swear I have finally found the holy grail of comfort bras that’s actually full bust friendly too.   When Cake Maternity first made known they were introducing the fuller bust Sugar Candy bra I couldn’t contain my excitement.  I’ve long been attracted

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

Ella and Me Pyjamas: Lavender & Lace

This week marks a new milestone in my pregnancy – I’m 28 weeks and officially into the 3rd trimester!  Although I’m struggling with pre-exisiting health conditions coming back to haunt me and pelvic pain forcing me onto crutches, I am lucky enough to be otherwise enjoying a healthy pregnancy, and bed rest isn’t all that bad.  Now it’s Winter I feel a little less guilty hibernating at home, and the extra pyjama time is currently one of

Hear Me Roar: Freya Rumble Bikini

Over the last year lingerie and swimwear have steadily been tapping into the botanical trend, seeing this season’s prints more dramatic than ever.  Whether tropical scenery or English florals, the bikinis of Summer ’16 are set to be the feistiest yet. If it weren’t for Katy Perry taking on the tiger in the jungle, we’d be stuck with Tarzan in his loincloth.  Thankfully we can rely on gorgeous swimwear like this sweet two piece for expressing complete femininity and

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,

Ella & Me Sleepwear : A Very British Lace Story

I love pyjamas.  I ought to feel somewhat guilty in admitting a day spent lounging in my jim-jams is a day well spent, but I don’t.  It may not qualify me as an expert in nightwear but I’m most definitely 100% fussy enough to know a good pyjama set from a bad one. Looks are everything, but a cute print means nothing if the cut isn’t right.  While a gorgeous pattern and the most delicate fabric

A Carnival of Colour with Freya Parade

Never underestimate the power of fantastic lingerie.  We all have our own ideas of the perfect lingerie set, but looks and fit are inarguably two of the most defining points that make lingerie truly amazing. Colour is a massive influencer when I’m lingerie shopping.   I love bright colour; when I know I’m wearing something really vivid I feel like my energy is feeding off it.  Exciting patterns and shades aren’t pointless when they’re sending a

Pin Up Pretty: Tutti Rouge Beatrice Mint Spot

I’ve followed Tutti Rouge since they first launched into the fuller bust scene back in 2013.   Within just a few years the brand has achieved incredible acclaim, thanks to their fresh new take on D+ lingerie – and a little help from some rather spankingly hot ladies fronting their campaigns and wearing their wares, a la Ashley James, Lucy Vixen and Sukki Singapora. While many lingerie labels at the higher end of the cup spectrum seemed
