Raising Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

I haven't been posting much recently which is mainly because I have been super busy working on all sorts of projects - here's one of them! A few months back I was approached by Cancer Recovery to front a campaign for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.

Of course I jumped at the chance to do something that involved both gorgeous lingerie and raising money for a great cause (breast cancer is the most common cancer for women in the UK) so I gathered up a team of six designers, plus myself, and we all got to work creating some gorgeous and one-off lingerie items to auction off for the charity.

Love Me Sugar donated two gorgeous eye masks to the cause. If you've never bought a Love Me Sugar eye mask, believe me when I say these are amazing quality, being handmade by 'Mademoiselle Sugar' herself in her Paris studio.

Petits Secrets by CB donated a collection of four gorgeous and one-off lingerie items - two knickers and two eye masks - all of which are handmade in the UK using up-cycled fabrics, so the lingerie is both ethically-made and eco-friendly. What could be better than that?!

Jennifer Pierre sent in two gorgeous 'Seabreeze' bras, both hand-signed by Miss Pierre herself, plus a pair of sexy, sheer black knickers.

Louise Ferdinand came up with a gorgeous one-off bra and knickers set in white satin, trimmed with hot pink ribbons. The brand's lingerie is all hand-made in the UK and goes up to a J cup.

Flirty Thirtys donated a really beautiful crepe-de-chine nightwear set, trimmed with original vintage Nottingham lace and a crystal heart. This brand was also handmade in the UK, although unfortunately they are no longer trading so this creation was probably the last Flirty Thirtys set ever to be bought!

Lilly Wiggler Couture donated an absolutely stunning and very on-trend bondage-inspired harness bra and knickers set, again handmade in the UK. This was my personal favourite in the auction although unfortunately not my size!

And finally Esty Lingerie (i.e. me) created a lovely beaded corset and a white lace bra and knickers set for the auction too.

Check out some of the gorgeous pictures from the photo shoot below!

I'd like to thank these people for helping out with this project - I couldn't have done it without all of them!
