Contributor Cherelle Mukoko shares her favourite, luxury lingerie brands for the season.
As John Spence famously once said, "Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion; today is special".
What you wear under your clothes is almost as important as your outfit itself, so contributor Cherelle Mukoko has picked out her favourite brands that will leave any woman feeling confident & sexy.
Fleur of England
Quintessentially designed in the UK by founder Fleur Turner, Fleur of England has been hugging women’s beautiful bodies for 23 years, and only seems to be elevating each year with their sexy designs. Investment pieces that will stand the test of time, as well as provide comfort and style, Fleur of England originated from a young girl who dreamed and appreciated the importance of femininity, and you can see and feel that passion within the brand.
Coco De Mer
In an age where women are becoming more confident and open with their femininity and sensuality, wearing beautiful lingerie is just one of the ways in which we can honour our gift of feminine power. Coco De Mer embodies this sentiment. Owner and CEO Lucy Litwack is a catalyst for promoting female pleasure and empowerment. From bodysuits to plunge bras, this brand has made sure every woman, every shape and every age has something special to adorn their body.
Wacoal was launched in Japan in 1949 and prides itself in its attention to detail. If you’re unsure about size and fit, Wacoal also has a fantastic virtual fitting service that has been tried and tested by me. I admit I was very sceptical at first, but it truly is an excellent service.
