Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to one of the hottest UK lingerie events: The Cosmopolitan Lingerie Show. This was the first year I’d ever been to the event, and after keenly following blog posts and social media after the event for quite a few years now, it was amazing to be there and wrapped up in this super-glam celebration of lingerie.
On Tuesday I was invited along to the Old Town Hall in Chelsea for Calico PR’s Catwalk Edit, where they showcased the brands they represent’s latest collections and gave both brands, press and PRs a chance to network and introduce themselves. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day, enjoyed seeing some old faces and some new, but best of all made some pretty exciting brand discoveries for both regular and fuller cup.
Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the press preview of Triumph Lingerie’s latest innovation: the Magic Wire. Here at Invest In Your Chest we love a bit of lingerie fashion and a cute print, but what we love even more is bra technology and innovation. We get very excited about new designs and inventions created by clever lingerie brand design teams with the intention of making the bra-wearing experience that much more enjoyable. So, what’s it all about?
I just wanted to write a quick post to update you guys on the IIYC & Triumph Bra Club meet and greet event I’ve been planning with Triumph International on Monday the 9th of June, and I’m stunned to announce that this event in now fully booked. I truly wasn’t expecting for there to be such an amazing response to this, and it’s incredible to have your love and support. I’m so thrilled and excited to meet you all in 12 days’ time.
After being kindly invited to attend the gorgeous Triumph popup shop in Covent Garden for a bra fitting, the brand and I have knocked our heads together and decided to host a fitting event for all Invest in Your Chest readers to come along, get fitted and try some Triumph lingerie for themselves. Any IIYC readers who can pop along (as well as hanging out with me and a handful of other bloggers) will receive a complimentary fitting and a free set of their choice in their new size. If that’s not a good excuse to get re-fitted I don’t know what is!
Moda time is one of my favourite times of year. There’s nothing I love more than popping around the stalls and seeing what my favourite brands have to offer in the coming seasons – or even better – finding a new favourite brand to drool over! This year was no different, with a fair few ‘must haves’ from the likes of Gossard, Tutti Rouge, Freya, Panache and more. Warning: this season is not for the shy – I’ve put together a summary of some of the trends I spotted weaving their way through each of the collections, with neon bright shades, oriental, strong colours and bold florals making a strong statement.
It’s pretty safe to say, that it’s not that often that Becky and I get REALLY excited about the launch of a new lingerie brand. It goes without saying (you only need to pop over to Becky’s Twitter page for about five seconds to prove it), we’re really rather excited about All Undone. Think all-Christmasses-at-once excited.
I’m sure that most people reading this will agree that D+ lingerie is often an expense that gets pushed to the back of the queue of priorities. Whilst I’m up for splashing out on gorgeous new-season lingerie and falling in love with the latest collections, the fact is that if I need to replace my basics and I’ve just been bankrupted by an MOT, I’m going to shop around. It’s websites like My Curves and Me which come into play at times like this. Actually, let’s face it – we all love bargain, even on pay day! When I can purchase a bundle of gorgeous matching sets for a guilt-free fraction of the RRP, who’s complaining? Here’s some of the gorgeous sets you can get your hands on at the moment: The Masquerade Amor:
