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.
Since Becky very sadly had to go see her favourite band of all time and missed out on the last Moda show, she’d not seem these collections ‘in the flesh’, so she was particularly keen to go along to Eveden’s press event for their Spring/Summer 2013 collections for their brands Freya, Fantasie, Elomi and Huit.
I’m having a bit of a dilemma of what to wear as soon as I (eventually) get out of my festive pyjamas- something that every lingerie fanatic will face today: what lingerie do I wear Christmas day? Option one is Fauve’s lovely Lucia. How adorable is this set?! Fauve, the expensive older sister (think a classy, well behaved, grown up sibling to Freyas rebellious teenager) is a brand that I’ve lusted over but always overlooked, mainly given the price. The exquisite pieces are beautiful and I adore them but as a part time student and struggling writer, they’ve always been just a little put of my price range. When the Leia voucher popped up on (whatever the website was) I jumped at the chance to treat myself, ESPECIALLY when I realised there was a Fauve outlet page. Yipee!
I’ve been a long-standing fan of Busts 4 Justice since their epic battle against tit-tax back in 2007, and the fabulous Busts 4 Justice blog has kept me hooked ever since. Author Beckie Williams writes topical,interesting (and sometimes controversial!) posts about the joys and faux pas’ of The Lingerie World. Her sparkling wit and talent to spot a great story has often engaged me and left me thinking, her charming way with words and delightful anecdotes (anyone else fancy a ride on Cecil?!) has kept me going back to the ‘B4J’ blog time and time again, but recently, I left feeling dismayed.

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.
On my search for 28 band bras I have found myself lusting particularly over the brand Fauve by Fantasie – a luxury bra brand who create higher end styles with all the extra trimmings which rack up quite an impressive piece of work (as well as a slightly more hefty price tag!) who unfortunately only stock 30 back bands and above. Now – on my recent trip to Leia Lingerie I was fitted into a Fauve bra in a 30F after telling the fitter about my love for them and their upmarket styles and I found the fit (although not entirely what I am accustomed to) perfectly uplifting and made a lovely shape. I feel that the bands are more firm than many 30 backs I have come across and the superior structuring make them not only gorgeous but really comfortable too.
