I have to admit, this was one of the most fun blog posts I’ve written in a long time. It basically consisted of online shopping, but without the budget or guilt. Best thing ever! I’ve simply put together the top 10 bras that I would pick if I were to ask for lingerie for Christmas. You may not agree with my choices, but it may give you some ideas of what to ask Santa for, or even what to pick up for your significant other.
I myself can’t really understand this, but looks wise this bra seems to be dividing opinions. It seems to be the bra form of Marmite, with people either being absolutely head over heels on love with it, or comparing it to a ‘bad 1970’s sofa’. I can’t quite decide where I stand with this one, and at first glance I was definitely in the ‘in love with it’ category, despite the set being very unlike my ‘usual’ taste.
You may have seen this set in my Valentine’s full bust gift guide post, but here it is in it’s full glory in the flesh. You got it – the Panache Capella. Since spying this beauty at the Panache Spring/Summer 2012 press event I’ve found it very hard to concentrate on anything other than champagne satin and printed lace. Just look at it – isn’t it a marvel? This was without a doubt one of my best picks from the Panache Spring/Summer 2012 collection – if not of the whole season!
One of our favourite luxury online lingerie retailers Figleaves has teamed up with the whizz kids at SaveMe4Later, creating the first interactive advertising campaign featuring Figleaves’ products on adverts in the London Underground, set to launch tommorow, Monday 28th November 2011. SaveMe4Later introduces its complicated and very impressive techno-savvy technology which uses phone scanners on the underground via an offline saving capability.
Simply Yours are a fantastic place to go to buy lingerie due their large size range (especially for larger bands and cup sizes) and great choice of brands and styles. They have a handy ‘buy now pay later’ payment option which I must admit I often exploit, and it’s particularly handy if you’re not 100% which size you’ll need. Their returns service is exemplary and customer service very good, which is always a great foundation for any retailer.
Last weekend I went to the Freya fitting event in Selfridges and it got me thinking about what I want for Christmas (I’d tell you what I’m getting other but that would be telling!) With exactly one month to go until the big day, here is my top 5 wish list from the current and upcoming Autumn/Winter 2011 season:
Panache’s Press Event was an absolute pleasure to attend. All of their brands were extremely strong for the approaching season and all were outstandingly beautiful, original and luxe. Panache’s strength lies in their directional approach, strong visuals and ‘niche’ collections: Masquerade for luxury, Cleo for fun, Superbra for beautiful everyday and all for fit.
First of all, can I just say: how pretty is this print?! This is a bra set that I’ve had my eye on since the MODA Exhibition earlier this year. It is a set which really stuck out and was one I couldn’t wait to get my grubby mitts on. I’m always wary on plunge bras as I seem to be a bit of an anomaly as I find balconette bras suit my shape much better and more often than not there is a misalignment that no amount of size switching can banish. In the case of the Panache Rosa, however, I was pleasantly surprised.
