IIYC turns the grand old age of four this month, and to celebrate I’ve teamed up with the guys at the UK Lingerie Awards and Travelodge UK to offer one lucky reader the most amazing prize. I’m giving away a ticket to the highly-coveted UK Lingerie Awards, the flashest, most celebrated, most glamorous event in the lingerie industry calendar. The only catch? You’ll be going along with yours truly.
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.
You may remember my blog post from a few weeks ago when I was invited along to Triumph’s press launch of their new innovative non-wired bra: Magic Wire. Well it’s been a little while now and I’ve been wearing this baby in order to test it out for you guys, and I feel like I’m finally ready to give my two cents.
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.
With so many different styles and buzzwords in the lingerie world, it’s unsurprising that it can become pretty confusing when you’re shopping for bras. Trying to find that perfect bra can be a horribly tiring ordeal, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has spent what feels like forever scouring department stores and lingerie shops searching for something in your size, let alone something that suits your shape and fits well AND is pretty, too.
I have to admit it, this bra has a special place in my heart since the first time I tried it was when I packed it into my suitcase when I went to Japan for three weeks back in 2012. Now I can’t even look at a Porcelain Viva without it reminding me of the amazing time I had amongst the cherry blossoms
