Made by Noemi Classic Collection – Friday Lingerie





MadebyNoemi_classic1In the second of my ‘where I shop’ lingerie features, I bring you the wonderfully simple but beautifully crafted ‘Classic’ collection from Made by Noemi, driven by the belief that classic means timeless; always in fashion.

There are some lingerie styles that really should be an investment in the same way that your closet contains the perfect white shirt; the wear-everywhere leather jacket and those well-fitting pair of jeans.  Designer Noemi Ivanova has an aesthetic lean towards both basic and thematic collections, but the Classic collection is my new favourite as it excels in both simple beauty and function.

Produced in cotton and lace (there is also new beachwear collection, which I shall spoil you with another time):

“A key factor in the Classic collection is the fabric: it has to be perfect. The collection is produced in cotton and in lace. I wanted, and finally found, a thin cotton fabric and a lace fabric that met my requirements for quality, lightness and comfort.” - Noemi Ivanova

My favourites are the cotton soft cup bras - which have cross back straps and front fixture which I feel is a great detail for comfort – and the black lace panties.

Noemi continues:

“The Classic collection is at the core of the Made by Noemi brand. My aim is to create well-fitting and beautiful garments, and I have come up with a few styles that I believe should be in every woman’s lingerie closet. Having done this for over ten years I know what works and what doesn’t. But this doesn’t mean that things don’t evolve. Over the years, the styles have been modified and the details refined, but the core vision has remained the same: to enable women to feel comfortably, as well as a bit more luxuriously, dressed – every day.”

Introducing: Madame Supertrash




Madame Supertrash


Madame Supertrash swimA combined this Friday post for lingerie and swimwear, prior to everyone jet-setting off on their summer holidays.  My attention has turned to Madame Supertrash - a vintage inspired collection of intimates paired this season with a swim line to match.

A 40s- and 50s- style collection in electric blue and pastel hues, Madame Supertrash’s current lingerie range is body sculpting at its very best. Sheer bodysuits, high waisted briefs and cleavage enhancing bras a la Joan Holloway all vie for your attention.  Some well placed cut outs and metal fastenings update the collection for the modern lingerie connoisseur.

The swim collection, aligned with the current Madame Supertrash lingerie aesthetic, is a beautiful monochrome and vintage rose print mix of bikinis, retro one-pieces and cover ups.  Zou bisous bisous indeed.

You can purchase Madame Supertrash from Beautifully UndressedJournelle, Petit Bisous, Figleaves and Prohibido. With thanks to The BodyWear Office.

Lulu Tout Coco Lace GreyLast month I was the privileged guest of Figleaves at their blogger dinner, a wonderfully indulgent night of wine, supper, and lingerie (a perfect combination in my book).  It was one of my first lingerie blogging events in London, giving me the fantastic opportunity to not only browse the new intimates at Figleaves, but also meet some fellow blog writers I have followed for a long time but had never met in person.  These include Glamazon Blog, Undercover Lingerista and Bunnipunch (we did call each other by our real names at dinner, but I admire these ladies so much I want you to visit their blogs, so blog names it is).

Lulu Tout is a brand new lingerie collection exclusive to – pretty separates, French inspired, made from soft lace with stylish details such as embroidery and mesh.  Lulu Tout will appeal to those who like classic, seductive silhouettes from their lingerie – Amelie features bead inspired embroidery in aqua and black colourways; Fleur Rose possesses an elegant flower pattern with pleated satin straps. Finally, Coco Lace has a pretty scalloped edge with lace and embroidered pinstripes; available in rich emerald green and charcoal grey.

All styles are available in a range of sizes starting from a 30 inch back up to a H cup. And with prices ranging from the oh-so-reasonable 15.00 GBP for a short; 24.00 GBP for a bra, this raises Lulu Tout to the status of ultimate go to brand for beautifully feminine lingerie with a stylish twist.

Stay tuned for part two of my Figleaves post – because they do swimwear too, don’tcha know….

With thanks to Wingfield PR for a lovely dinner.
