I’ve been planning a couple of personal shopping trips this month, as part of the Irreverent Dance Kickstarter reward that I offered, so here’s a super-quick underwear Lust List inspired by those trips.
1) Playful Promises’ Cristina longline cage bra
Available in both A-D and DD-F cup options, this bra is stunningly simple but with a strappy twist. If you, like me, you are an F cup and have been coveting strappy bras, then Cristina (pictured) is for you.
2) Floozie by Frost French orange floral/dragonfly bikini
One of my shopping trips took me to Debenhams and we were both tickled by the name of the Frost French range for the department store. I particularly love this bright retro bikini with underwired top and high waisted briefs and couldn’t resist adding it to this list, even though it’s swimwear, as we’re still in summer.
3) J by Jasper Conran black satin lace night dress
Another fab find in the Designers at Debenhams range is this gorgeous vintage-inspired nightie. It looks a lot like full slips from the 1950s but in a much more luxurious fabric. An absolute bargain price too.
4) Kiss Me Deadly silk ‘day corset’
If you love corsets but don’t think you could wear one all day, then this purple silk day corset is for you. It has steel boning, back ribbon lacing, a removable waist elastic, sheer stretch side panels and non-stretch flat back and front. It also features a quick release zip instead of a front busk.
5) Ariel Resin Shells and Sequinned ‘Tail’
As an homage to the Topshop #MermaidJeans and Skinny Dip’s shiny shell handbag that were encountered on one of my recent shopping trips, I couldn’t resist adding this completely daft but rather beautiful mermaid costume to the list. You kinda want it, right?
