This January, Stylist have launched their Visible Women campaign to celebrate the brilliance of all women by: raising the profiles of important women past and present; and empowering future generations to follow their lead.

How kink taught me to love my body

Like a lot of young women in their teens and twenties, I grew up feeling very uncomfortable in my own body. By most "standards" I was too big - my thighs were too fat, my arms were too chubby and my boobs were definitely too enormous to be considered desirable. I was an early bloomer... Continue Reading →

Ageless Fashion by Playful Promises

As a woman in her early 40s with a love of gorgeous underwear, I'm used to having to do a spot of brain gymnastics in order to imagine myself wearing a lot of the lingerie that catches my eye, because it's almost always shown on the firm bodies of young slender models. When I saw... Continue Reading →

My day at Stylist Live 2016

A few months ago, my sister asked if I'd be interested in going to Stylist Live with her. This self-proclaimed 'festival of inspiration' runs for 4 days at the Business Design Centre in Islington and, as a regular reader of Stylist - well, whenever I can get my hands on a copy at Oxford Circus...

London Rollergirls battle for the Hydra

This week, I received an email from Brat Worst of the London Rollergirls with some rather exciting news that I might want to write about.

The exhibition is part of 14-18 NOW, a five-year programme of arts events connecting people with the First World War. Working in partnership with cultural organisations across the UK, 14-18 NOW is commissioning "new work... Continue Reading →

Lust List: April

This month's underwear Lust List is inspired by my visits to The Body Studio at Selfridges and the Undressed exhibition at the V&A, plus my many lunch time window shopping trips on London's famous Oxford Street (having a day job that's based at Oxford Circus can be dangerous!). I can't get enough of the wonderful... Continue Reading →

The Body Studio at Selfridges

Yesterday, Selfridges launched a massive new destination department - for lingerie, swim, sportswear, loungewear and hosiery - and I couldn't resist a visit on the opening day so booked myself in for a bra fitting after work. The Body Studio is based on the third floor of its Oxford Street store and, as reported in... Continue Reading →
