Lingerie is not just for Christmas!

I buy my own lingerie after all it makes sense, I know my perfect size and I know what I like. I long ago made it clear to my other half that I dont want a ‘lacy red all in one’ for Christmas or Valentines! Just give me the cash and let’s go shopping for the day and have lunch into the bargain!

Well which would you prefer? He now enjoys a day trip to london as much as I do!

My lingerie Dilemma…

Do you still rely on good old M&S? Or have you found somewhere online to shop? In America I visit the larger department stores like Nordstrom, Macy’s or even JC Penney. They always have lovely styles at bargain prices. Then of course there is Target (one of my fave US stores) that sell rows and rows of ‘Hanes’ the softest cotton underwear ever.

Where do you buy your Lingerie?

But in the Uk I find it harder to buy. I dont want big and comfy I want pretty, lacy and comfy. So spill the beans and tell me where you shop I would really love to know.

I visited the Victoria Secrets Bond Street store recently, and although I liked the pretty things I felt a little overwhelmed with all the bright lights and mirrored displays, sensory overload I think its called!

So I usually buy online, from stores I know well such as Next or yes you guessed it M&S!

Fantasie Lingerie

I have long been a fan of Fantasie lingerie, a brand that has been around for a some time. Did you know they recently won a prestigious retailers award? Fantasie took home the award for Lingerie Brand of the Year at the Drapers Independents Awards 2017.

I was sent some to try recently and I have been impressed at their comfort and fit. You may have seen my pic on my style Instagram? Well since then I have had a chance to wear, wash and wear again and I am delighted to report back that I will be definitely be wearing more of this brand in the future.


The fit is very good and comfort is key without sacrificing style or prettiness. This Marianna set is my favourite… (obvs I am not going to model it that would be very scary for you indeed) So instead I will show you a few of my own pics and a few from online…

    I buy most of my lingerie from Figleaves and it’s usually Fantasie or Freya. M&S sizing seems a bit odd so I rarely buy bras in there. My dream is to go to Rigby and Peller.
