When I think of French lingerie designs, delicate feminine pieces usually come to mind: Chantilly lace, wispy tulle, and elegant embroidery. Impudique by Catanzaro definitely has these components, but there’s also an added edge of daring cut-outs and strap details, and wet-look swatches mixed with lighter textiles.
I have been a Patreon supporter of Maude Nibelungen for 3 months now, as well as for 5 months back in 2019. If you aren’t aware of the brand, Maude Nibelungen is a Canadian-based knitwear designer who creates incredibly unique lingerie designs using knitting techniques and interesting fibres.
SADA by Sarah is a relatively new brand to come to my attention, but that I hope to see featured a lot more in the years to come. Designer Sarah Dawson creates her signature pieces in Brooklyn, New York, after realising her passion for designing intimate apparel while studying the city’s Fashion Institute of Technology.
My favourite new lockdown habit has been dress up nights… It’s a new tradition that I hope to continue long after it’s deemed safe to regularly leave our homes again, and one that has given me a wholly new appreciation for Knickerocker’s over-the-top designs.
This seems a strange time to be writing about a swimwear brand. I think maybe I’m living vicariously through Deakin & Blue’s product imagery, because I’ve found myself repeatedly checking out their website since I discovered the brand just over a month ago.
Cake Maternity have been on my radar since my pregnancy over 5 years ago, so I was overjoyed when they offered to send me one of their new, non-maternity bralettes to try out. These designs are part of their new sub-brand Sugar Candy, which claims to be “the only seamless, wireless range of bralettes for busty women”.
While I love Lydia’s design aesthetic, the main reason I enjoy her social media is her commitment to inclusivity when it comes to those she creates for. Every piece of lingerie is made to your own measurements, which you provide during the ordering process.
Wearing lingerie is one of my favourite ways to show myself some love, and while everyone will have different ideals of the type of underwear they feel best in, here is a selection of designs which just happen to be more explicit about reminding you to love yourself!
The idea of period pants has always highly appealed to me. I came across British brand Cheeky Wipes a few months ago and couldn’t say no to such low prices. Wuka, ModiBodi and Ruby Love all kindly offered to send me underwear to try out too.
While some relish the moment of being able to take your bra off as soon as you walk through the door, some fuller-busted people prefer to avoid going completely sans support. Bigger busts can sometimes be uncomfortable to work around while sleeping.
