Earlier in the year I was contacted by Maison Lejaby about reviewing one of their pieces, and though I wasn’t familiar with the brand, I quickly had a look around their website and gladly accepted! Maison Lejaby is a French brand that has been around since the 1930’s, offering some absolutely divine pieces! They asked me which pieces I liked the look of and I found it really hard to choose. I eventually picked out the Theodora, Illusion, and Hanae styles, and I was thrilled when I received not one, not two, but three different sets! The first set that I received was the Theodora Unpadded Balconette Bra in Tropical with the regular matching briefs. I’m not usually a fan of orange-anything really, but this is an exception – I think this set is absolutely stunning!
I received the set in sizes 80F (30F) and Size 2 (Small) briefs. They use French sizing, so it took me a while to figure out which size I should go for, but I figured it out eventually! Continue reading →
Hello lovelies! I’m fresh back from Moda and ready to share sneak peeks of what’s coming next year – but first! I noticed at Moda that once again, the number of brown bras is on the rise, which is great news for women of colour looking for nude bras. I wrote about all of the nude bras available from full-bust brands for the SS16 season earlier this year, and I thought now would be a good time to do the same thing for the current AW16 season. So, here’s what’s available now!
First up, the Parfait Charlotte in Bronze, available soon in 28-40 D-K! I admit, the black piping means it won’t be a perfect nude bra, but I am very glad to finally see a darker shade join this bra’s classic nude-based shades of Peach and Dusty Rose. I’m sure this will look stunning on light and dark skintones alike, and I can’t wait to see how people like it. Continue reading →
Hey lovelies! Sorry for the radio silence over here – those who follow me on social media will already know this, but I’ve been a bit out of action recently due to appendicitis and subsequent surgery, not to mention sorting for university exams and my new nephew arriving seven weeks early! Anyway, I’ve been working on a few posts and should be back to regular posting soon, but since it’s currently a bank holiday weekend here in the UK, many lingerie and clothing brands are offering bank holiday sales and discounts. So, today I thought I’d do a quick round-up of what’s available!
Rochella are offering 50% off their current collection (which I previously showcased here)! Rochella are a new premium lingerie brand, offering some really gorgeous designs right up to a J cup. Bras are usually £59, while suspender briefs and regular briefs are usually £46 and £30 respectively, so if you were curious about Rochella, now would be a great time to try them out! To get this offer, enter the code RSS1605 at the checkout. End date TBA. Continue reading →
Those of you who have been readers for a long time might remember my love for Curvy Kate’s Showgirl collections – particularly the Tease Me and Thrill Me styles! Unfortunately, these styles only went to a 30J and sister sizes, and as a 30JJ/K, they were always a bit too small (not that that ever stopped me!). Luckily for me, not too long ago, the Tease Me was reinvented and re-released as the Curvy Kate Tease, in a new-and-improved size range of 28-38 D-J.
I usually wear a 30K in Curvy Kate’s unpadded bras, however, since this size isn’t available, I decided to try it out in a 32J with size 14 briefs. I’m also wearing the set here with my Lovehoney Flaunt Me robe (reviewed here) – I think the scalloped lace trims match this set perfectly! Continue reading →
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.
