SIL Preview: Freya AW16 (Including Freya Active & Freya Swim)

Today is going to be my last day of AW16 previews, and the last set of brands to cover is the Wacoal Eveden group! Wacoal Eveden produce some of the best known brands in the lingerie world, managing Fantasie, Freya, Huit, Wacoal, b.tempt’d, Elomi and Goddess. I’ll be sticking to the full-bust brands, starting with Freya! The Freya AW16 collection primarily features shades of electric and navy blue, lime yellow, orchid purple and chilli red.

My Top Picks for AW15

If you follow many lingerie blogs, you may have realised that this time of year is when all the lingerie brands head to tradeshows to showcase what will be new from them next season. In fact, I’ve just gotten back from Moda, where I got to see lots of next year’s lovely SS16 pieces (more on that soon!), but for now I thought it might be nice to do a round-up of all of my favourite pieces coming out for AW15 – that is, anytime now!

Curvy Kate

Curvy Kate’s AW15 collection primarily features cranberry red, eyecatching oranges and golds, with some splashes of pixie green.

Curvy Kate Ellace Black/Champagne

One of my firm favourites, this is the Ellace in Black/Champagne. This bra is Curvy Kate’s first foray into a balconette with a stretch lace upper (a design which seems to be becoming very popular!), which I am so excited to try out myself. Available in 28-40 D-K, 42-44 D-G at Brastop. Continue reading

My Favourite Bra: The Freya Deco Carly!

As my last few guest posts on here have been about Gossard bras I thought I’d switch it up a little and tell you all about my most favourite bra ever: the Freya Deco Carly. It may surprise you to know that I got this bra in 2011, that’s right THREE years ago! Although the band has stretched out a little I still absolutely adore this bra and don’t think I could ever bring myself to throw it away.

Freya Deco Carly 28FF

The appearance of the Carly is lovely; it’s overall white in colour with a black criss-crossing chain pattern printed on the base, a black lace trim overlaying the top of the cups, and beautiful teal velvet strips just below. Also on the bra sit 3 teal and black lace bows – two where the straps join the cups, and one on the gore. Continue reading

Moda Preview: Freya SS15

I’ve been on holiday recently, so I haven’t been able to get online to write any posts. But, I’m back now, and ready to carry on with my Moda previews! So, next up I’m covering the Eveden/Wacoal group, starting with another big favourite, Freya. This season from Freya features lots of zesty brights, electric blue, bright pinks, cool mint and blush.
