…it’s an M&S silk chemise. Designed by Rosie Huntington Whiteley no less. So I may not look like a supermodel in it (boo hiss!), but if you’ve left your Christmas shopping a little late and are looking for something special for the lady in your life but have no idea where to start, it might be worth popping down to your local Marks & Sparks.
It’s fairly well documented on this blog that I’m pretty obsessed with lingerie (duh!). But it’s not all about pretty bows and eyelash lace – it’s so much more than that. I’m 100% in the ‘the perfect bra can change your life’ camp, and I’ll unashamedly and unapologetically chat all day long (or for two whole years to the interweb to anyone willing to read) about it. One of the founding posts which helped chisel and shape this blog into what it is today was my High Street Fitting Challenge. Written on the 18th October, 2010, it’s to this day one of my most popular and talked about blog posts. And here’s why I think that is. Most women in the UK – and across the World for that matter – hear about how important it is to go get fitted into your bras. We hear, probably every time we enter Marks & Spencer for our weekly dose of Percy Pigs, that ‘80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra’. But what about those of us who are ‘getting fitted’ but still not completely happy with how their lingerie fits and feels?
M&S suggest lingerie to suit your skin tone British high street giant Marks and Spencer have introduced a ‘lingerie to suit your skin tone’ application on their website which suggests lingerie to suit different skin tones. Whilst this is something you can notice ‘oh that really suits her skin tone’ – I can’t say it is ever something which crosses my mind as I purchase in the same way as clothing. I found this concept fascinating! Do you buy lingerie with your skin tone in mind? Or do you just buy what takes your fancy? What do you make of your recommendations?
