I first featured Apilat on the blog in my 2017 round-up of brands making incredible robes, and they’ve only gotten better since. Couture techniques and luxury fabrics are central to their design process, and how could they not be when this label got its start designing wedding dresses?
You may recall Keòsme from my earlier review of their Bersèra swimsuit, or my review of the Hermiona bra set by their sister brand loveJilty. Both Keòsme and loveJilty are produced by yesUndress, a Ukrainian retailer with an ever-growing number of brands under its umbrella.
Welcome to the second installment in my series on hosiery made from natural or recycled fibres, where today we’re focussing on bamboo. One of the most talked-about fibres in eco media, there’s a lot of debate about whether it’s actually all that sustainable.
My absolute favourite thing about Instagram is how often I discover new lingerie brands over there, and Love & Swans is one such treasure that made its way onto my feed shortly after its February launch. I was instantly besotted with their beaded embroideries.
Inamorata London is a lingerie brand created by independent UK retailer Naughty Knickers, which they launched with the goal of expanding their size range. Pieces are available from a 30B to 38G, and from XS to 2XL. I picked the Aster set to review because I couldn’t resist the pretty embroidery.
Today’s blog post is a round up of low-cost items by small lingerie labels – most of them handmade, one-person operations – that you can buy to help support them, if you’re in a position to do that.

Luxury lingerie brand Prelude has been on the outskirts of my radar for a while, for designing some incredibly beautiful pieces. It’s hard to pick a favourite from the Noir Fatal collection, but I’m definitely swooning over the high-neck bra (subtly decked out in Swarovski crystals) and high-waist knicker combination.
Three years ago I wrote a post rounding up seven brands making some of the most stunning luxury robes available to buy online. And since many of us are set to spend the foreseeable future indoors, now seemed like a good time to do a follow-up post with seven more.
I don’t see any reason to wear business attire when you’re at home. I also however know that it can be hard to get into that “I’m working” frame of mind when everything, including your outfit, reminds you of a lazy weekend.
