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.
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.
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.
‘Betty’ in red Back in February (and yes, I realise it’s now May… I’ve been a bad, bad blogger!!) Becky and I attended the Moda Exhibition in Birmingham for the fifth time. It’s always one of the highlights of the UK lingerie calendar for me, as it’s a chance to catch up with some friendly faces and see what all my old favourite brands will have on offer in their next season’s collection – plus it’s a great chance to find new brands, too!
I admit, I’ve had a bit of a bra blowout lately. Having recently donated a pile of old bras to friends and BCR Global Textiles, I thought it was about time to replenish my collection! Right at the very top of my list of favourites has got to be the delicious Cleo Marcie.
When I was waddling around the Moda show yesterday with many a press pack in tow, I was delighted to see the stunning Lucy Moore – winner of Anne Summers Uncovered campaign – modelling not for Ann Summers, but the new Scultresse range from Panache.
Both of these LF Intimates brands really caught our eyes at the Show, and the lovely Francesca Walsh (their PR & Marketing girl – anyone seen her Moda posts on Lingerie Buyer?) was as lovely in the flesh as from behind the computer screen.
Panache’s stand is one of the ones I look forward too seeing the most every season, partially due to their vast array of brands which suit all different occasions, but their Marketing Manager Heather is always so much fun!
I think I must have been living under a rock for the past year in a half as I’ve not come yet reviewed a Mimi Holiday bra on my blog, despite being pleasantly reminded at the Moda Exhibition last weekend that their size range is the very respectable 28-40 AA-GG.
