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 Top Picks for Black Friday

Black Friday is very much an American thing, but over the past few years, more and more UK stores have been joining in on having big sales. Which is fine by me! So, today I thought I’d share some of my top picks for sales and discounts.

Gossard Phoebe Suspender Belt

Gossard are offering 20% off everything, including pieces in the outlet category, which means you can get up to 70% off on some styles! I am very tempted by the Phoebe Suspender Belt, which is already half price off, so is just £17.60 with the discount! Discount is applied automatically at checkout. Ends at midnight tonight (Friday, 28/11/14). Continue reading

Go Retro with Gossard

When I was contacted about reviewing one of Gossard’s sets, I received the Gossard Summer Plunge set (which I previously reviewed here), and I also surprisingly received a second set, which was the Gossard Retrolution Half-Padded Bra in Black with matching briefs (part of their ‘VIP Lingerie’ range). I usually wear a 28G, but as Gossard start at a 30 band, I decided to try out a 30FF with XS briefs. When I took my first look at this set I wasn’t too sure about it, but I swiftly changed my mind. As someone who has a relatively accessible cup size I find the majority of bras in my size range give a fairly rounded shape, which was my main reason for doubting this bra – the ‘Retrolution Half-Padded Bra’ is pointy.

Gossard Retrolution Half-Padded Bra and Briefs Set in Black - 30FF, XS

At first I was a little uncomfortable at the thought of a pointy bra, but upon trying it on my opinion slowly changed. While looking in the mirror I felt like a gorgeous vintage model and I just wanted to pin curl my hair, dance around to swing jazz and apply my favourite red lipstick! Continue reading

Spring into Summer with Gossard

I have been speaking to a possible columnist/guest poster for a while, and when I was contacted by Gossard asking if I would like to review something of theirs, it seemed like a great opportunity for her first post. Hopefully this will be the first post of many, so give a warm welcome to Rachael.

I had strangely never heard of the Gossard brand before (and therefore had never owned one of their pieces), so when I was contacted about reviewing one of their sets I had a little mooch on their website and gladly accepted! My current size is a 28G so I decided to try out a 30FF (as they don’t go down to 28 bands) and XS briefs. I was extremely pleased to find one of the sets they sent me was the Gossard Summer Plunge and matching thong – I hadn’t seen any pictures of this bra anywhere, so it was a lovely surprise to get a first look at it.
