Normally, I wouldn’t review something I’ve decided not to keep. I feel like you need to wear and wash a garment at least a few times before you can properly judge it. But ever so occasionally, I’ll briefly get my hands on a piece of lingerie that is so special I want to write about it anyway.
I received this set in a subscription box. I had no idea what was going to be inside, and it’s not something I’d ever have chosen for myself. The shape, the colour… it’s just not my usual style. But it fit well and felt comfy on, so I started wearing it, and then something strange happened – I realised I’d actually been wearing it a LOT.
I’ve been window-shopping at Peek & Beau, a Playful Promises diffusion brand, ever since the collection was first released. I’ve consistently found Peek & Beau styles fun and interesting, and I was excited to purchase the Gold Wrap Bra and Star Gold Brief as my first experience with the brand.
My previous blog post was all about ColieCo, so now seemed like a good time to review the set I bought from this brand earlier in the year. An independent label that I’ve been following for a couple of years, it’s headed up by designer Nicole Neaber and is sustainably-handmade in Portugal.
It’s no secret that I adore bows. I’m also a sucker for anything with fancy metal hardware on it. So when I saw Mimi Holliday’s Hide and Seek set, with its gold metal bow detailing, I knew it had to be mine.
The English line Viva Voluptuous was founded “out of frustration” by Liz Willis, who struggled to find sexy boudoir lingerie and swimwear in her size. The brand is dedicated to crafting comfortable, supportive lingerie that is still beautiful. Bra sizes range from 36-48 D-GG…
My move to Barcelona got off to a serendipitous start last year when I was contacted by Sofía Luzón, a local designer who had at the time just debuted her brand. I instantly fell in love with the 12-piece collection, which focusses on elegant, simple shapes crafted from silk satin and luxurious, European-made laces.
With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching you may be thinking of buying a lingerie subscription gift for your partner. Or maybe you’re just thinking of trying one yourself. Whatever the reason for your interest, if you’re wondering which is the best lingerie subscription service out there, I decided to try a few out and report back!
The brand Poetic Works Lingerie was founded by designer Amarantha Harrison and creates sustainable lingerie that’s handmade in the USA. The size range spans from 32A to 36D for the bras and from XS to XXL for the briefs…
Thinking I wasn’t really going to need it, I left most of my hosiery (and all of my opaque/thermal hosiery) back in the UK when we moved out here. So I was really glad when APM Fashion contacted me and offered to send some bits back in October.
