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,

The Bridal Basque | Panache Serenity Collection

Bridal lingerie wants to be beautiful for your big day, but if it isn’t functional too, it’s style without substance.  Your design of wedding dress may allow you flexibility in your choice of bra, but exposed and low backs call for something undisclosed. The Serenity bridal collection by Panache is a continuity line that I happened to sample two years ago when I had a bridal photoshoot.  I reviewed the strapless bra in a 30GG where-as today I’m exploring the basque in a 30H,

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

I’m At a Place Called Vertigo | Maison Close ‘Doux Vertige’ Collection

Lingerie is an exciting world because its existence serves more than practical purpose.  See it as merely underwear and you’ll only experience the tip of a beautiful, exotic iceberg that has the ability to take you places beyond the daily grind. Maison Close is one of my favourite brands for beautifully designed lingerie that is sensual, provocative and visually attractive.  The brand’s French heritage inspires an alluring mix of feminine chic with soft erotica, creating a stunning aesthetic

Feline Fancy | Parfait Kitty Babydoll

There was once a time when babydolls were considered quite old fashioned, but in recent years the graceful lingerie garment has made a trend u-turn.  Now the fuller bust market is increasingly trend led, brands are offering more than the basic bra, and babydolls are the latest lingerie candy. Babydolls are flirty and fun, and as such a popular favourite for nightwear.  Many women like to sleep in a bra, so the benefit of wearing a babydoll to bed is

Wonderbra Glam Part One: The Balconette

Wonderbra is probably the most well known lingerie label thanks to their iconic 90’s ‘Hello Boys’ campaign.  The brand has a reputation for the sexiest lingerie, and with bras boasting serious cleavage enhancing design, it’s safe to say Wonderbra is the world’s biggest boob booster.   Wonderbra have ample collections to their name these days, with provocative and feisty aesthetics to suit a variety of shapes and sizes up to a G cup.  One of their

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

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
