Kelly Brook Lingerie Launches at New Look

Just as La Senza goes into administration you start to wonder if you will ever find pretty, low priced DD+ bras again, famous curvy lady Kelly Brook launches her first lingerie collection with high-street retailer New Look following 5 years of designing a successful swimwear range for the brand.

Apparently a 34E herself (I don't know if that is true), Miss Brook has designed a pretty and feminine collection that looks great whether you're a petite B-cup or a curvy F-cup, the largest size available in the Kelly Brook for New Look range. The prices aren't bad either, starting at £5.99 for a pair of knickers and reaching no more than £14.99 for a bra.

These are my favourite pieces but you can view the full range for yourself by visiting the New Look website...

Kelly Brook red flocked bra £14.99 and thong £5.99 (suspender current unavailable)
Kelly Brook Eyelash lace bra £14.99, briefs £6.99 and satin suspender belt £7.99

What do you think, is the New Look Kelly Brook lingerie set worth buying?

Luxury Black Harness Bodysuits - Two of the Best

I love these two black elastic bodysuits!

First up is a beautiful design by Shahnaz Bodywear (left), currently only available to purchase at Esty Lingerie. Priced at £369, it's priced on the high side but you definitely get what you pay for - each Shahnaz Bodywear piece is lovingly hand-crafted for order in the UK by the designer herself. This luxurious, bondage-inspired lingerie design features a slimming waist cincher that not only looks great but is also comfortable to wear, whilst the harness-style network of elastic and O-rings up the front make the design completely unique - you won't find this on the high-street!

The second set (right) is actually a bra and brief set by Nichole de Carle, but they're designed to fit together to form this stunning, harness-style bodysuit. The sexy and sophisticated The Last Testament bra costs €169 (approx. £115) and the The Last Testament brief with halterneck strap costs €99 (approx. £82) so again, it's not cheap, but definitely worth it!

On a budget? The Ann Summers Stephania Black Body is a simple but similarly-styled piece that's on sale right now for a tiny £9! 

Or, if you're after something that's totally unique, check out this one-off Esty Lingerie Elastic and Lace Bodysuit that I created recently, now on sale for £49.99. Entirely hand-sewn and with over 200 small, silver beads hand-stitched onto the lace and central panel it took hours to many make and there won't be another one like it, so the lucky person who gets their hands on this first can know that they own something truly original...

La Senza goes into administration - Alshaya takes over 60 stores

 I spent a long Christmas in Barcelona visiting my boyfriend's family and didn't have much chance to keep my blog up to date, but as soon as I heard this piece of terrible news I had to share it - La Senza has gone into administration and has been bought out by international retail franchise operator Alshaya, who will be taking over 60 of it's UK stores. Of the 146 stores that La Senza had in the UK, a massive 81 stores will be closing or have already closed and, very annoyingly, this does include the two that are near me!

I've always been a massive fan of La Senza - in fact it's my favourite lingerie store on the high-street - and had no idea that such a well-known and popular company was doing so badly financially. With the exception of a handful of pieces in Ann Summers and maybe the odd set or two in Marks and Spencer, it is the only place on the high-street to make pretty bras in my size. Non-lingerie specialists such as Topshop do sell gorgeous underwear, but never above a D-cup so I have always struggled to find attractive designs that fit me, with the exception of La Senza of course (even they didn't make all of their styles in DD+ but they did for around three quarters of them). Of course, beautiful DD+ lingerie is easy to find if you have unlimited funds (think Agent Provocateur, Myla etc....) but one of the best things about La Senza was that their prices were always so, well, affordable.

So, what's planned for the few stores that are staying open? Well, if you're lucky enough to live by a La Senza store that hasn't closed down yet you'll find huge discounts of up to 70% off in their clearance sale - there was also a massive online sale until recently but the website is currently closed for 'maintenance' - as Alshaya will be introducing new collections as well as new store designs. I can only hope that when La Senza re-opens officially they'll stay true to the original La Senza brand and continue to sell pretty bras in non-standard sizes, and not raise their prices.
