The second I stumbled across Dorshelle Guillaume, I fell in love. The designs are simply breathtaking, every single one of them an ornate and unique showstopper. There’s a level of decadence and attention to detail here that is rare even amongst luxury lingerie brands, from lusciously-embellished fabrics to beaded fringing.
Last year I went ‘low waste’. And so, as a long-time lover and consumer of fashion and especially as a professional lingerie blogger, naturally my attention has turned to how I can continue to shop for lingerie in a more sustainable way.
You may recall my giveaway last November for a Darling set by Lavinia Lingerie; at the same time, the brand gifted me a set of my own, so this review comes to you today after a good 3+ months of ‘wear testing’.
I had planned to write about another lingerie brand today, but I stumbled across Ami Muse Studio via an Instagram advert yesterday and simply had to share them with you. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, the brand was launched last year and has already appeared in Vogue and been picked up by Matches Fashion.
Last year, I published 5 lingerie trend predictions for 2019 and said I’d aim to revisit it when the year was up. It was a fun post to put together, so I’m doing it again with 5 new predictions for 2020.
I’m kicking off the new year with an announcement: Esty Lingerie is now on Patreon! Sign up from just $2 per month, to support this blog plus receive access to members-only perks including exclusive content.
These last two weeks have really gotten away from me thanks to various freelance deadlines and other projects (did you spot the shiny new logo?), so this last gift guide is going live a little later than planned. Although this final one is my ‘luxury’ guide, it covers a wide range of budgets with ideas from barely over £100, through to almost £1,000.
Alongside fabric content, one of the things you will pretty much always see listed in a hosiery product description is a ‘denier’ number. But what does it actually mean, and what do the different deniers look like?
I especially love putting together my ‘mid-range’ gift guide each year. Picking out beautiful things to recommend without giving any thought to the price tag is easy. Finding pieces that look stunning but won’t break the bank is much tricker, and I enjoy the challenge!
This is the first of three lingerie gift guides I’ll be publishing this year, and focusses on the most affordable items. Everything on this list is below £50, but prices go right down to around £7. So there really is something for every budget.
