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

Royce Maternity: Floral ‘Florence’ Nursing Bra

Maternity lingerie can be too beige.  Don’t get me wrong, beige has its place, it’s fantastic when you want a neutral colour that won’t show through your clothes.  But sometimes neutral, basic colours don’t cut it, and maternity underwear can be guilty of being so niche, it appears brands are almost too afraid to make a fashion statement with it.  The way I see it?  I shouldn’t have to change my lingerie personality just because I’m

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. In 2016 we’re actually pretty lucky to have the choice that

Anita Paisley Pregnancy Bra

Pregnancy makes boobs crazy, and it starts right from the first trimester.  The past twelve weeks have taken a painful turn, leaving me vulnerable to sensitivities.  While a few of my regular bras are still comfortably wearable, softer and more gently supportive, maternity specific bras have certainly brought a new kind of relief in this season of tenderness.   Despite feeling fuller in the bra department, I’ve not massively grown, which is very much okay with me.

Curvy Kate Portia: Pretty In Pink

If you took a look through my lingerie stash you’d probably be surprised by what I own.  ‘Basics’ in black, white and skin tone are considered the mainstay of any underwear collection, but a neutral colour palette just isn’t my cup of tea.  While some of my essentials are, out of necessity, pretty basic, I find colourful lingerie so much more fun.  Sounds kinda corny, but I feel like I’m wearing the essence of happiness when my bra’s an

Cleo Skye : Zesty Summer Sorbet

I like my lingerie to be two things: reliable and mood reflecting.  And of course that opens up to a whole plethora of styles and colours, which makes lingerie so complex and, importantly, fun! Summer is a great time to expand your lingerie collection if you like your underwear bright and breezy as you can always count on gorgeously wearable styles in light hearted prints and cheerful colours.   Cleo‘s newest line – Skye – oozes

Parfait Darlene in Serenity ‘Summer Blue’

Lingerie is having a blue moment, and it’s every inch a cheerful affair.  Colour authority, Pantone, has selected a whimsical theme for 2016 naming not one but two colours of the year, with powder blue Serenity (alongside blush Rose Quartz) headlining the most desirable colours. Serenity blue, with its soothing tranquil tones, reminiscent of fresh Spring mornings and sunlit bluebells, has been picked up by trend responsive lingerie brands already.  New season collection, Darlene, by Parfait is introduced in

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
