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.
It’s definitely winter now in the Northern Hemisphere, especially here in Scotland where temperatures are regularly dipping below 0°C come nighttime. This means that silken robes and lace styles are being overlooked in favour of warmer options. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to fully renege on feeling stylish!
I thought I’d do something a little different today and write about something loungewear-adjacent – slippers! I’m still not totally used to living in a country that shuns carpet, and I hate the feeling of freezing tiles under my feet first thing in the morning.
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.
One of the least talked-about sizes categories in the lingerie industry is sub-A cup sizing. It’s also one of the least catered-to, with almost all brands (besides, of course, full-bust specialists) beginning their range at an A cup.
After discovering how difficult it was for her plus-size niece to find stylish swimwear, Olga Caro was inspired to begin research into designing for plus-size bodies and eventually founded the company with young women like her niece as the target demographic.
