As many of you may have noticed, The Circumstances are a bit challenging for small independent businesses, so last year I got told that I needed to sort myself out and start organising us indie lingerie brands sending each other presents again!
If you've seen us do this before, you know the drill; secret santa style, we've all been allocated someone from a brand and we send them a present, and we get one from another brand in return. None of us know who our gifter is until we get it :)
After a year spent mostly in and out of medical tests, my colleagues and friends are right and it's been a delight to look at new brands, new styles and think about what we might like. Why not take a look at the brands and tell us what's on your wishlist?
Also who can guess which brand we've sent corselettes and velvet too? :)
It's always tricky working out what size to send, but having wriggled into an M Byatt and an L overwire when my measurements are more of a 2XL, I'm feeling optimistic.
Here are the brands - which will be on your wishlist?
I don't drink, but I fully support the booze and black leather vibes.
(omg can we talk about how good her most recent shoot is?! You should go and look)
Plus they do ALL the brands. Bettie Page, Hustler, Deja Day, and more, PLUS they also stock other brands (like us!)
Ethically handmade silk lingerie and loungewear. Also, extremely reasonable for custom and personalised options. Her bedjackets are some of the most worn items in my wardrobe.
Now I seem to recall that many of you like backless girdles and skirts so . . . I think you might really like this brand :)
I promise they also make things in black. But psychedelic almost sci-fi vibes are more eyecatching :)
You know how whenever we made an all in one piece it's always a compromise of bust fit to waist and hip fit? Well, Seelanii let you order by bust and waist size!
Conceptual couture lingerie brand merging traditional craftsmanship with innovation.
You know that really elaborate lace applique that looks like its just sitting on the skin? Yup, that's her - and you can order it in several shades of illusion net to find a close match to your skin!
