Shock the Ripper!

April 17th, 2013 by Nicola

We have all definitely heard of ‘Jack the Ripper’ but now thanks to some students in India, there is a new and preventative approach to ‘shock the ripper!’


An aeronautical engineering student in India has invented this great device, following the tragic and unjust gang rape of a 23-year-old student.

After talking to several women in hostels who feel threatened, the student came up with an idea for a bra that would provoke a 3800kv shock to any sexual predator.

What you may be wondering is how the bra can be worn, without shocking the wearer. However, this matter has been resolved by the bi-layer fabric used to protect the victim from any oncoming shocks.


Although the initial concept is quite useful to women feeling threatened, there is a lot of technicalities that need to be taken care off. The electrics embedded within the bra are still somewhat bulky, and need to be designed more delicately to bring the item onto the market.

Carrying March Madness Along into April!

April 8th, 2013 by Nicola

An interesting story that caught my eye recently, talked about March being a month where people did two things the most. The first being partying and the second involves springing into shape!

If you have recently been doing a lot of both these activities, try out some fabulous lingerie to push up the tempo and carry through the springtime ‘March Madness’ into April.

Apparently, in March the top three cities that painted the town red with a high dose of partying were Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago.

We have some sultry lingerie to recommend for this wilder aspect of ‘March Madness’.  A chic and stylish piece to wear for those unforgettable nights out is the Triumph Irresistible Curves Underwired Bra.

Black and White Lingerie Symphony

March 27th, 2013 by Nicola

After witnessing plenty of black and white tied in together presented for spring/summer 2013 collections, it is apparent that monochrome is set to be huge trend for the season. Therefore, you may wish to step into spring with a range of lingerie that also incorporates monochromatic styles and detail.


A lingerie piece that incorporates the trend exceptionally is the Curvy Kate Showgirl Thrill Me under-wired bra in black. If you would like to add demure vintage mistake to your lingerie drawer, the Gossard Georgiana Limited Edition balconette bra brings this across incredibly whilst keeping in line with the monochrome trend. The balconette bra is similar to the one by Curvy Kate, yet it dilutes the yellow colour with a more timeless shade of creamy beige.


For some knickers that go befittingly with the trend, the Sloggi Light Hipster exudes the trend with subtle charm. These are best paired with a plain black bra for a teasing look of style as well as a subtle monochromatic blend of the white flower over black.

If you desire going into summer with a black and white lingerie medley to go under all your favourite pieces, take a look at these ranges.

La Perla presented a beautiful range for spring/summer 2013, which tied in perfectly with the fabulous array of silky net, utilised in Louis Vuitton. The sheer net trend seems to be set to rule for upcoming seasons.

As challenging as it may be to cause a stir like Kate Moss did in her ‘return to the runway’ at Paris fashion week recently in a sheer lace flowery ensemble, there are some gorgeous recommendations for those who wish to pursue the trend.

Look sensuous in your own unique way, as Moss did, with a Fantasie Simone underwired plunge bra and matching briefs. For colours that match those worn by Kate Moss, you can also try the Elodie underwired bra with side support.

Cara Delevigne carried off a sensual mystique, in a silky pair of dark pink briefs combined with a washed-out grey jumper and long, furry coat.

Kate Moss Puts Sheer Floral on Every Page

March 7th, 2013 by Nicola

Yesterday, I noticed someone on the train reading a newspaper with Kate Moss on the front page in a see-through floral lace dress. The off-white net dress was embellished in a variety of silvery, metallic flowes and subtly revealed a pair of pants that she wore underneath.

The picture from her Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion Week catwalk has been splurged everywhere from newspapers to online. It has caused a real impact for Autumn/Winter 2013 and seems to be a trend that will be here to stay.

Why not take a look at some of our fashion picks that reiterate this seductive trend?

Get Racy Like Kim Kardashian!

February 26th, 2013 by Nicola

Not everyone looks like Kim Kardashian on her latest raunchy cover for French Mag ‘L’Officielle’ but you can still sizzle by following the latest AW13/14 21st Century Romance trend as forecasted by WGSN. Deep red, blue and black are set to be as crucial as embellished pieces. These go hand in hand with the plunging necklines seen during the most recent Brits and Oscar’s ceremonies. The limelight has shone on lacy corsets – a ceremonial opulence statement set to provoke fashion fanatics. These lingerie styles come alive with the following pieces we’ve selected:

Perfect for wearing under a sheer top, the Panache Angie Basque fits in appropriately with the gothic lacy corset trend set to be in everyone’s wardrobe for AW 13/14.


The Gossard Retrolution Waist Cincher ties in nicely with the shapewear craze that should be in full effect for AW 13/14. Grab one here immediately for sensational style.


The Gossard Retrolution Staylo Bra is a showpiece that is worn for the most special occasions when you wish to channel the Angelina Jolie inside of you, with those plunging necklines and bring her out in that seductive red carpet style robe!


Low Cuts all out For Brit Awards 2013

February 22nd, 2013 by Nicola

On Wednesday night a parade of fabulous gowns were flaunted left, right and centre during the Brit Awards. Jesse J sported a more down-played look with a Morticia Addams-style low-cut black robe, and Rita Ora went for the opposite look with a low-back shiny pastel pink dress. This low-cut craze can be easily pulled-off with a mix of multi-way and backless bras. If you wish to sport a backless number like Rita’s, go for the Splendour Diamante Backless Bra to keep it classy and elegant!

The divas from Little Mix were looking dashing in their colourful display of gowns. Even Leigh Anne wore a white low-cut number, which would go great with a plunge or multi-way bra. We were more taken aback however, by Jesy’s studded black push up bra under a strapless striped dress that did wonders for her beautiful figure. Get the bra-with-strapless trend here with a Gossard Wild Flower Plunge Bra to correlate with the floral trend that is making rounds at the moment, or chose your own from a number of styles right here.


Tastefully Risqué Underwear Clutches

February 8th, 2013 by Nicola

0-468--BasicTP-num-5-size-421x572Ever heard of wearing your knickers as outerwear? Well it is now possible with a latest innovation we spotted this morning. The ‘Little Camel Clutches’ available from Etsy are normal white clutch bags, with a particular pair of knickers pasted on top to accessorize and decoration. Giving an eccentric illusion, the clutches let place items into a pair of knickers rather than a regular clutch. The latest knickers that have been used for these quirky clutches are a pair of batman knickers. The comical side of fashion fun definitely comes alive with these clutches! Here are suggestions of knickers that we think would look fabulous on the clutches.0-2017--BasicTP-size-300x400

This ‘Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Lace Thong Black/Skin’ would be chic on a gold or silver clutch. The lace trend that appeared all over the red carpets at the Golden Globes will turn an ordinary clutch into an ‘a la mode’ piece.
