LoveSuze is a newly-launched brand founded by Suzanne Macbale, who was previously Associate Vice President of Design at Victoria’s Secret. In case you’re wondering how similar this fledgling label is it to the lingerie giant: it’s not. There’s not a push-up bra in sight at LoveSuze.
I’ve been following Primrose & Pixie for years now, ever since I first discovered this “lingerie and sleepwear for modern daydreamers”. The designer behind the brand, Sarah Richards, creates beautiful, unapologetically-girly lingerie inspired by nature, fairy tales, magic and Gothic styling.
HARA — which means green in Hindi — is one of the most eco-conscious brands I’ve seen. They don’t just try to be sustainable; they’re willing to go above and beyond what other companies are doing to help the planet.
Cake Maternity have been on my radar since my pregnancy over 5 years ago, so I was overjoyed when they offered to send me one of their new, non-maternity bralettes to try out. These designs are part of their new sub-brand Sugar Candy, which claims to be “the only seamless, wireless range of bralettes for busty women”.
I’ve been particularly drawn to the relatively new Rougette designs by Tutti Rouge, many of which are bralettes fitted by cup and back size. Ideal for someone like me who has a large cup and small back!
Vixen & Fox is a newly-launched, Australian label that aims to fill a specific need in your lingerie drawer – good-quality, timeless-looking basics. Instead of debuting with lots of items, the brand has designed a capsule collection of four simple pieces that you can mix and match.
Ever since the explosion in bralette popularity, I’ve spotted more than a few brands labelling something as a bralette when it’s clearly not. And it annoys me, because it spreads misinformation and confuses consumers about what a bralette really is.
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 going through a comfy lingerie phase recently, forgoing some of my fancier lacy pieces for ones that are sturdy and breathable. I’ve come across some lovely sets that prove to be gorgeous, comfortable, and perfectly patterned for spring.
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.
