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.
There is a seemingly endless supply of gorgeous, well-crafted lingerie out there, and that means I’m always on the lookout for my next purchase. But as I become more environmentally-conscious, I’ve had to ask myself how my lingerie obsession has impacted the rest of the world.

If you’ve never tried silk lingerie, you’re missing out. I used to wonder if there was really such a difference between real silk garments and their polyester satin and chiffon lookalikes, except for the price tag. Then I finally caved into my curiosity and trust me, the two are worlds apart.
2017 was a rather eventful year for me to say the least. I completely redesigned my website, quit my job to write about lingerie full-time, visited my first lingerie trade show, saw the inside of a lingerie factory for the first time, and was honoured to be named on Lingerie Insight’s latest Power List…
