Fallout Inspired Lingerie

Last year, the gaming community exploded with the news that the much-loved Fallout series would be receiving a new sequel. I’ve been thinking about doing a series of Fallout inspired lingerie for a while now, and with the first DLC release coming up, it seemed like the perfect time!

So, first up, Vault Boy! Vault Boy is an iconic mascot for the Fallout franchise, usually shown wearing the standard-issue vault jumpsuit in shades of bright blue and yellow.

Burlesque Inspiration with the Ewa Michalak S Gazeta

A couple of years ago, Ewa Michalak released a particular style which received an unbelievable amount of attention: the CHP Gazeta. This burlesque-inspired, newspaper print piece sold out incredibly quickly, and it’s still highly coveted throughout the lingerie community today. While the CHP has a smaller size range than some of Ewa’s other pieces, Ewa Michalak offers the option for many of her styles to be custom-made in another cut for a small fee. I was lucky enough to get my hands on an S Gazeta, which uses the same fabrics and detailing, but in a construction specifically designed for larger breasts.

With how sought-after this style is, I wasn’t able to get this bra in my preferred size of 70K (32K), so this is a 60L (28L). Continue reading

Moda Preview: Rochella AW16

My last preview of the season is going to be Rochella! I actually didn’t get a chance to visit Rochella at the SIL, so I instead decided to pop into last week’s Moda show to see them. So, this is going to be my only Moda preview for this season! After looking through Rochella’s SS16 launch collection, I also got a sneak peek at what’s to come next season. All of the lovely details Rochella used in SS16 return again, with all of these pieces featuring high quality Italian satin, 18ct gold plated hardware, soft lavender linings, and beautiful embroidery. And, as always, Rochella will be donating a percentage of all profits to The Eve Appeal. So, here’s Rochella AW16!

Rochella Vintage Floral Bra and Brief

First up is this surprisingly Spring-esque piece, the Vintage Floral. This is the lightest piece of the collection, featuring a duck egg blue base with a delicate pink floral. Like many of the styles in the SS16 collection, the upper cup appears to be sheer illusion net, which should become invisible against all skin tones. I think this is one style my guest blogger Rachael will be a big fan of! Continue reading

SIL Preview: Elomi AW16

The last Wacoal Eveden brand I’ll be covering is Elomi! I usually preview Elomi and Goddess together, however, this preview will mostly be of Elomi, as for some reason there was only one Goddess style available for me to look at. I’m not sure if the other samples were being shown elsewhere, or if Goddess are primarily focussing on continuity styles rather than fashion styles at the moment, but it’s something to keep in mind for this preview. The Elomi AW16 collection primarily features shades of teal, bright blue, red, brown and black, with pops of silver, pink and white.

Teal is a strong colour for this season, as shown in the Bijou and Portia. Let me start this preview by saying that this Bijou longline is quite possibly the prettiest style from Elomi I have ever seen. Look at it!!! The rich teal colour, the bold black piping above the cups, the scalloped lace overlay, it is just perfection. I also really liked the Portia – on first glance, the print looks almost like stained glass windows, but when looking closer, the details of the butterfly print really come out.

SIL Preview: Fantasie AW16 (Including Fantasie Swim)

Next up, Fantasie! Fantasie has a slightly more mature and sophisticated aesthetic than Freya, with the Fantasie AW16 collection primarily featuring shades of navy blue, teal, pomegranate and ivory, with accents of white, gold and silver.

Fantasie Sofia Padded Half Cup Bra and Waspie in Black (30 D-G, 32-38 C-G & S-XL; Side Support Bra also available in sizes 30-36 D-HH, 38 D-H, 40 D-FF) ; Fantasie Natasha Plunge Balcony Bra in Black (30 D-G, 32-38 C-G)

First up, the Sofia and Natasha! These are both new styles, featuring a black base with gold and silver embroidery, but with a very different overall look! The Sofia is an incredibly beautiful, luxurious style, with an option for a coordinating waspie suspender, something I’m very pleased about! Matching suspenders seem to be far and few between in the full-bust world, so I’m always excited to see more options including them on the market. The Natasha features leopard embroidery; leopard print is often seen as being trashy or overtly sexy, but I think this embroidered approach to leopard lingerie gives a sophisticated edge to the style.
