The last year has meant many of us are now choosing to ditch the underwired bras and bikini panties in favour of more comfort and a soft bra or seamless t-shirt bra is a top choice. I recently read some research that said we are also preferring 'Bridget Jones Pants' and opting for a higher rise style! I don't usually go for 'big knickers' but when Playtex got in touch to ask if I'd like to choose a lingerie set from their current range I thought I would try out that undie drawer staple - a black lingerie set but with a different style of pant - big knickers! I also came across Kate Garraway's book 'The Joy of Big Knickers' .... have you read it?!
I was actually really lucky to have the opportunity to try out two sets, because Maidenform also sent me a bra and thong to try. So let's have a look at the two 'black lingerie set' options.
Both have comfort in mind, both are black (but available in different colours too) and both are still really stylish and lovely to look at as well as feeling beautiful to wear.
I've not done a style post for ages! But as we tentatively start moving from the coldest months of winter and into early spring, how lovely it is to have a little wardrobe refresh. I am not a fan of winter dressing, I feel too trussed up with layers and too restrained. I love floaty summer dresses, I love to cast off the layers and be able to wear lighter knits. Give me sunshine, alfresco lunches and a nice glass of wine and I'm happy.
I was excited to see the new colours and styles arriving on the Creative DeZigns website, and Nicki sent me a few bits to try out, the two outfits I am sharing today, definitely tick the box of winter into spring ....
This isn't a long blog post - but have you ever suffered from tiny holes in cotton t-shirts and knitwear? Right in the middle at the front?! I do and I had absolutely no idea what was causing them. And it happens on new clothing too, after one wear! Sometimes the holes appear in other spots but generally they are right in the middle. I actually wrote about it on my blog a few years ago but didn't find an explanation or a solution. Until now - discover button covers!
Holé are silicon button covers, promising to rid you of those mysterious holes. I saw them on Instagram and then they got in touch, having found my original blog post and offering to solve the problem. They sent me two packets to try and two new colours to give feedback on.
