I see so many gorgeous items of lingerie online that I finally decided that it was worth compiling a short ‘lust list’ each month to share the joy with you all. There are so many brands I love and individual pieces that catch my eye, many of which are completely out of my price or size range, but it’s nice to dream. Here’s my new year selection for 2015.
1) eLai ‘Cassiopeia’ gown
I love this entire collection with its glorious sci fi references and relaxed sport luxe glamour. If I ever end up on the TARDIS in my nightwear, I’d like to be wearing the Cassiopeia gown, bra and high waist briefs, plus the Xenon silk chiffon pyjama trousers and short sleeved top. Especially that dressing gown though – loving the lurex!
2) Angela Friedman ‘Laurel’ slip
I love the timeless beauty of the Muse Collection but the stunning stretch silk Laurel slip would definitely be my must have piece from it. The racer back and glimpse of lace give this simple elegant garment real wow-factor and I bet that silk feels wonderful against your skin.
3) Freya ‘Icon’ moulded plunge bra
Every bra-wearer has a favourite style, and the plunge is mine. If you’re above a D cup it can be tricky to find a decent plunge, but Freya has that covered with its brilliant Deco. I own several and didn’t think I’d find anything better, but I’m definitely going to try their latest variation on this style. The supportive lace overlay and colour combination of the Icon moulded plunge bra looks really fantastic.
4) What Katie Did ‘Vamp’ underbust corset
Underbust corsets are good for popping on over a great outfit to turn it into an amazing outfit. I have long lusted after the What Katie Did Morticia corset – perfectly shaped for those of us with a ten inch difference between our waist and hip measurements – but was worried that it might be a bit long to fit me properly. Now that they’ve brought out a shorter variation called the Vamp, I really must make time to visit the boutique and try one on!
5) XXXtian by Dita Von Teese and Christian Louboutin
When I first heard about Dita’s new lingerie collection, via the Kiss Me Deadly newsletter, I was smitten. The XXXtian capsule collection features a stunning printed silk trimmed with Leavers lace and is gorgeous in every way. Those colours… that print! If only I could afford to buy the lot.
