Moda Exhibitions Lingerie Show Autumn/Winter 2015 Trend Report

A few weeks back, Becky and I completed the first leg of our bi-annual pilgrimage to Moda exhibitions, to get the scoop on what’s to come in the the world of lingerie trends. This season it’s Autumn/Winter that was being exhibited, (I know, it’s a bit like time travel) and we’ve put together our take on what we have to look forward to later this year. Digital Floral Prints Floral print is well and truly in for AW15, but it’s go a modern edge. Prints are vibrant, clashing, and have a digital element to them. Prints have that ‘photographic’ look to them. It’s not really the time of year you’d expect to see a floral, and I have to say I find the ditzy floral look pretty tired and not to my current taste, but these were really stunning and seemed to give a fresh kick to the trend. Colours are also much bolder, tying in nicely with the technicolour trend: ‘multichromatic’. Freya Lingerie Freya Lingerie Freya Lingerie Tutti Rouge Freya Lingerie Green with Envy The shade of the season seems to be green. A really gorgeous, vibrant, shamrock green. It was everywhere! I personally love this shade, especially for Autumn/Winter. It’s festive, but a little different from the more predictable red that EVERYONE seems to roll out at Christmas/Valentine’s Day. And green seems to suit everyone, which is a bonus. Freya Lingerie Curvy Kate Curvy Kate Freya Lingerie Sporty Details I’m on a bit of a fitness kick right … Continue reading…

Scantilly AW15 Preview: “Curvy Kate’s Naughtier Friend”

If you don’t follow Becky or I on social media, you will have missed out on our Instagram preview of Scantilly, a raunchy new release from the same guys and gals behind Curvy Kate. Poor you! We were treated to the exclusive preview at Moda Exhibition, and I’m pretty confident in saying that I can’t be the only bigger-boobed lady who is excited by the launch of this new brand. The ‘every day’ lingerie market has really exploded in the past five years from something that caters to a huge chunk of women looking for pretty everyday bras which don’t make yo feel like you’ve raided your granny’s top drawer.

Parfait by Affinitas Exclusive Preview of Autumn/Winter 2015

Just when you thought our onslaught of Parfait love was over, we’ve got a first-glimpse look at their up-and-coming Autumn Winter range for 2015! Our creative adaption of the look and feel of the Parfait by Affinitas campaign imagery continued and evolved into AW15. The hair was amped up and the makeup was a little darker, but the same grown-up and seductive feel was carried through into the next season. We wanted to make sure that the brand stood out from the noise and made a statement with this sultry attitude which is seriously lacking in the full bust lingerie world.

IIYC x Parfait by Affinitas Spring: Our Creative Collaboration

Look book

It might still be too cold to be thinking about florals and bra straps on show, but the world of lingerie waits for no one; my 300 denier tights are still going strong, but Spring/Summer collections are just around the corner. Who cares about Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Behind the Scenes at The IIYC Parfait by Affinitas Shoot

Just imagine; it’s 6am, and you’re waking up on a freezing December morning – you can see your own breath in the room and the thought of leaving your duvet seems about as appealing as swimming with piranhas. That is, unless you have a lingerie photoshoot to go to. If I had this agenda every winter morning I’d be springing out of bed and into the wintery wilderness like a jack-in-a-box. Who needs fluffy pyjamas and cosy surroundings when you could be in a elegantly dishevelled photography studio in North London surrounded by bras, models and endless cups of tea?

All I Want for Valentine’s Day

Image source: pichost.me Lingerie gifts have gone hand in hand with Valentine’s Day for as long as I can remember, as couples (and singletons for that matter!) indulge in the theatre of a ‘sexy’ lingerie set. Whereas I’m all for adopting this ‘on the daily’ if that’s your bag, but I do still, admittedly, still love looking around at the collections that are released in the lead up to this time of year as companies target the ‘gifting’ season. of Christmas and V-day. I decided to indulge myself and put some of my top picks in a blog post, as my bank account is bare and I’m unable to indulge in any other way. It’s like the blogger’s equivalent of ‘bagging‘. So what would I like to receive on the 14th of February this year?

Lingerie in the FROW: The Cosmo Lingerie Show

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.

Pour Moi Promise Non Padded: Bra Review

I’ve been of the opinion, until now, that Pour Moi were the best thing since sliced bread, and without doubt my favourite inexpensive full cup lingerie brand. I wouldn’t say that this isn’t completely the case, but my love has been dinted by the Promise – it simply didn’t, ahem, live up to the ‘promise’ of other Pour Moi bras I’ve tried.

#LFW Catwalk Edit

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.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Washing Bras

I have had a lot of great feedback from you guys about my bra hand-washing tutorial, but it seems that so many of my readers are too darn busy to commit to this time-consuming process, and I’ve had countless requests for an easier way to do it.
