Freya Fancies Bralette: Full Bust and Fancy Free

Bralettes have surged in popularity in recent times and it’s interesting to wonder why.  With fashion magazines declaring that cleavage is dead, could it mean that no one cares for the push up and plunge effect anymore?  Perhaps it’s the eradication of confining under-wiring that’s becoming more acceptable, or maybe it’s just we want to feel comfortable and wear what the heck we like?   Whatever the reason for the current interest, there’s no denying bralettes are the most delicate and prettiest pieces

Playful Promises Mariela : A Full Bust Lust

‘Good things come to those who wait’ said someone once, and they were right.  Anticipate the release of an exciting new collection and it’ll feel a lifetime of agony, but when it’s launched the reward is sweet.  Few full bust lingerie lines offer enough to be genuinely thrilling and Playful Promises is one of those special gems.   Playful Promises‘ fuller bust DD-G range keeps managing to arouse attention amongst lingeristas.  With exotic details and sumptuous fabric oozing

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 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

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

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

Dear Santa, I’m on the Naughty List

It’s Christmas Eve and all thoughts are on the delights Father Christmas will bring in the night.   But forget the usual fare in Santa’s sack, because this year you sent the sauciest Christmas list up the chimney, enough to make Santa blush.  A self centred list full of devilishly delightful, completely sensual and a little bit naughty lingerie. Often the most exquisite underwear comes from independent talent, and a beauty I have wanted to bring to the
