I just couldn’t resist including a story about Australian lingerie label ‘Cake‘, who produce fantastically sexy underwear for pregnant women… All deliciously naughty in my opinion!! Stockists in the UK include Seraphine in Kensington Church Street.

WHO STOLE ALL OUR CLOTHES, DARLING??

WHO STOLE ALL OUR CLOTHES, DARLING??

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…
A woman who doesn’t care about the lingerie she wears is a woman who needs a new relationship!! The fabulous 50s inspired collection from Victoria Holt and her label Fred and Ginger is a perfect homage to old fashioned luxury and sophistication, and is guaranteed to get those sparks flying again. Victoria used to work with Jenny Packham, so is someone who really understands how to make a woman feel glamorous and confident. What is so refreshing though is that she has recognised that some of us boys also enjoy wearing nice underwear, and her collection includes a range of briefs and boxer shorts in French silks, English cottons and Swiss jerseys… The collection is available from Selfridges, so pop down and check it out!!
