Bras

The most important part of Bra buying is the size! For the sake of your companionship, check the label to find the correct size of your partner. The number relates to the back size and the letter relates to the cup size. Finding out her size will help you avoid breaking out in a stress induced sweat when browsing and purchasing the goods, online or in-store. The next part is knowing what style to get, here are some of the most popular.

Balcony

The balcony Bra lifts breasts to enhance and give maximum lift. Sometimes called a shelf bra the straps lift from the bottom of the cup. This one is definitely more of a sexy, sassy style.

Plunge

This is the perfect style for creating the most cleavage. The plunge supports from the centre of the bust and pushes the breasts together. This style is perfect for wearing with a low cut top.

Full Cup

This Bra is excellent for great support and shape. As described by its name it covers a larger portion of the breast, these are usually worn by ladies who have a larger cup size.

T-shirt

T-shirt bras are named so as they are easily worn under t-shirts without being seen. They are usually made with a smooth material and are seem free. However this style can come in many different colours and varieties.

Knickers

First things first; what does your lady like? Emphasise on what the 'lady' would like, not what you would like. Rifle through her knicker drawer to find out what style and shape she opts for. While you’re there you can also check the labels for size. This will usually be the same as her dress size for example 10,12,14 etc. Here are some of our bestsellers to get you started.

Full brief

The most coverage is given by the full brief and usually has a higher waist perfect for minimising her tummy. This knicker is known to be the most comfortable and will be available in most sets.

Hipster

The hipster brief is named so as it sits on the hip and usually cuts away at the back. Quite a fashionable style for a younger lady.

French Knickers

Usually composed mostly of lace these briefs have a high waist and cut around half way across the buttock.

Thong

One of the more well-known styles this brief exposes the bottom with a high leg. This style is better suited to petite or athletic Women.

This section is for those of you feeling a little more daring. If you’re looking for a show stopping set it must always be topped off with one of the below. Usually used for holding up a pair of matching stockings so you might want to think about adding those to your basket also!

Basque

A Basque works like a corset and can sometimes have a built in bra. These come in many different styles and shapes and really emphasise an hour glass shape for your lady. These can sometimes attach to hosiery like a suspender belt.

Suspenders and Waspies

A Suspender belt or Waspie sits above the knickers and acts as a belt to hold up stockings. A suspender is thinner and fits around the hips where as a waspie is thicker and reaches up to the waist. Usually both come with a matching set.

Nightwear

If you’re struggling with your lady’s size or style choice you can't go wrong with a lovely piece of Nightwear. Head in the direction of silk chemises and robes.
