Some lingerie-themed-but-not-actual-lingerie ideas. A great way to treat the lingerista in your life when you’re unsure of their size or preferred style! Many of them are also budget-friendly (prices start from around £5) so they’re perfect as stocking fillers or for Secrets Santas too.
Some of you may recall the full-bust lingerie brand Louise Ferdinand, which has now closed down. It was owned by Sandra Palmer, and 1st Man 1st Woman is her new venture. It’s a swimwear brand that launched in 2016, and unlike the earlier lingerie, it’s focussed on a core size range of XS to XL.
I buy and enjoy lingerie at a whole range of prices, from high-street pieces through to the fancy stuff. But the more I learn about lingerie, the more I’ve come to appreciate and desire those finer details you only find from expensive brands. Like many of you though, I struggle to afford them.
I always seem to get around to these trend posts months and months after I mean to. But this time at least that’s a good thing, because what was previously only a minor trend is really taking off this season. So I’ve got lots of looks to show you!
I recently got back from a mini-break to Venice, a belated birthday treat from my fiancé. It’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit, mostly to see all the canals. But when I found out I was going, my mind also turned to one of those other things Venice is famous for – it’s lace.
If you’re sad about the weather starting to cool down, how about injecting a little vibrancy back into your life with one of these bold and bright rainbow looks? They’ll certainly keep that summer mood going for a little longer, even if you’re wearing one to swim indoors.
I shared this piece on social media yesterday, and then decided I simply had to feature it on the blog too. The Soni corset is part of Agent Provocateur’s new AW18 collection, and is the first design of theirs since last year’s Haylie bra that has really caught my eye.
VienneMilano is a hosiery brand that I first discovered many moons ago, when I fell in love with a pair of their sparkly silver hold-ups (sadly no longer available). The new AW18 collection has just dropped, including the launch of the brand’s first ever plus-sized range.
Vixen & Fox is a newly-launched, Australian label that aims to fill a specific need in your lingerie drawer – good-quality, timeless-looking basics. Instead of debuting with lots of items, the brand has designed a capsule collection of four simple pieces that you can mix and match.
I’ve always been curious about mesh corsets. I like the appearance of them – almost like a skeleton of a ‘real’ corset – and the way you can layer one over your outfit without covering it up. The promise of breathability appeals too; it’s around 30°C here most days lately.
