Lucy B Tempting

26 Feb

Hello Dolls!

I thought I’d show you some of my favorite pin-up lingerie from Los Angeles based-designer, Lucy B. Naughty, flirty, sweet and sultry, the thing I love most about Lucy B is everything!

The satin stripe on the back of the Scantie Panty is so naughty and fun. I mean SERIOUSLY, this is so sexy! I love the shape of the panty too; I bet it’s super flattering and the matching garter belt actually looks comfortable (imagine that). The Sweet Tart Underwire Bra & Panty is super sassy too, all retro bullet bra with modern femme details, satin bows and flattering black mesh.

Fraulein Annie

21 Nov Falling In Love ~ Blush

Sometimes I come across lingerie that just stops me in my tracks. Takes my breath away. Leaves me swearing out loud. “Hot Damn! That’s some gorgeous lingerie!” It often takes something very unique, stunning, and creative for me to experience such an outburst.

That time is now. “Hot damn!” I say. Fraulein Annie has stolen my heart beat.

Fraulein Annie is “stylish and glamorous with a hint of vintage. Romantic, shape-enhancing and wearable”. The brand, inspired by a Marlene Dietrich song about the pain of “an unfulfilled love”, is evocative of Hollywood glam and early 20th century feminine form. The designer, Frauke Nagal describes the brand as “beautifully feminine with a romantic, melancholic view on a bygone era. Think the avant-garde style of the 20s to 40s mixed with quirky 50s and 60s, think Cabaret.”

I think I am completely smitten.

‘Falling In Love’ is an extremely romantic, vintage-inspired collection that features satin and lace in three colorways: a deep chestnut brown with black accents, a luscious cream and blush-red, and a opalescent grey and ivory set. There are many style options as well ranging from balcony bras, fuller-bust bras, basques (with removable suspenders), short knickers, thongs, and shaping high-waisted briefs. The fit of these pieces looks spectacular, and were designed with modern fabrics specifically to “tuck in, lift and smooth” to achieve the desirable hour-glass figure.

‘Bye Bye Mein Herr’ is inspired by cabaret, all dark and sultry. Strong lines are softened by contrasting grosgrain ribbon for a quirky, edgy look. This collection includes two bra shapes, an under-bust girdle, a “thigh slimmer”, short knickers, and a shaping brief.

‘Don’t Say Sie’ brings vintage shapewear into modern times with lightweight mesh that smooths and flattens, with contrasting black and gold accents. The body suit features “multiway straps” which can be adjusted to change the position of the straps to suit any outfit. The collection also features a deep plunge bra, a fuller-bust bra, a shaping brief, and a girdle with suspenders.

You can find Fraulein Annie’s collections at Fig Leaves. Be on the lookout for the 2012 Spring/Summer Swimsuit line as well!

Claudette Lingerie

20 Nov

Hello lovely. How have you been? I do hope you are feeling well. Myself, I am keen to introduce you to another lovely new lingerie brand. People often say that comfort is key, and Claudette has that in spades.

Claudette Lingerie

The creator and founder of Claudette, Robin Levitt, and her team of women had a simple wish:

“All we wanted was a pretty bra that fit”

The designers set out with this idea and took matters into their own hands. Now we have Claudette, an entire collection of lingerie that fulfills so many other wishes: beautiful, flattering, comfortable, luxurious and affordable.

Claudette Brassiere collections come in a wide range of cup sizes up to a 38 band.  The collection is designed in London using standard UK sizes ranging from A – D, DD, E, F, FF, and G, which means that the shaping and structure of the garments enhances curves beautifully. Full-figured women will look amazing in these bras and knickers.

I love the color blocking of the Sophia collection, as well as the photo-shoot inspired by the Italian goddess, Sophia Loren. I adore the 60’s vibe and the color panels that flatter the eye, while the nylon-spandex blend offers comfortable, breathable support.

Claudette ~ Sophia Collection

The collection is a wonder-of-threes, featuring three different bra shapes and matching bottoms, in three different color-ways (a deep sea grey & white, mauve & peach, and turquoise & yellow).

Sophia bras include a convertible-strapless, an unlined demi, and a lined underwire balconette. Mix and match with a boy-leg brief, a high-waisted brief with detachable garter, or a a bikini-thong that looks incredibly comfortable.

The ‘Cool Cotton’ collection is a perfect basic set which comes in black, mauve, or white. The breathable cotton-poly blend will keep you cool and comfortable, in the most flattering, supportive way!

I also love the seductive mesh contrast of the Dessous collection which comes in black, mauve, leopard print, and neon pink! So flirty and cute!

The new AW 2011 collections from Claudette will be debuting online and at select retailers in the US and UK.
