Let’s Talk About Sets, Baby! Valentine’s Day

February 8th, 2015 @ Amber

Valentine’s Day Edition

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I’ve put together some sets in black, pink, and red that are cute, sexy, and fun. Valentine’s lingerie doesn’t have to be red, no does it have to be lacey, it can be casual, frilly, basic, or whatever else you heart desires. These sets are sure to please your palette. So be your own Valentine this year and treat yourself to a set that makes you feel beautiful! Here are a few suggestions.

1. I really like Honey Birdette‘s line of lingerie. The boutique creates affordable pieces that look luxurious and come in a variety of sexy styles, such as this gorgeous red Nikita set. I love the shape of the bra cups and the matching suspender and panty really brings the set together.

2. If you’re looking for a more casual look, try the pretty pink Deco Charm set by Freya. The popular Deco style offers support, great cleavage, and is available in this pretty ballet pink color with mink colored lace trim. This style offers comfort in a cute for Valentine’s Day colorway.

3. I’m really liking many of the new styles from Agent Provocateur right now, including this new red colorway of their Annoushka Set. Sheer red lace and the strappy halter shape of the bra gives this a fun and beautiful look that is totally swoon-worthy.

4. Hips and Curves has such a great selection of beautiful lingerie for all of my curvy ladies out there. If you’re looking for something beautiful for your curves, check out this pretty pink Aubrey Embroidered Set. The shade of pink, and the lovely floral embroidery on this set makes it such a lovely choice for Valentine’s Day. The matching panty and garter belt really add to the look of this set.

5. This La Perla set is gorgeous and luxurious. I love the ribbed layered shape of the bra and the texture of the fabric. The Carioca Set is available in black, or red, and it offers a sleek and luxury design that is great for all year round.

6. SJ Lingerie just released their new collection for Valentine’s Day. This super cute Violet Valentine Set features black and light pink with a high waist panty and soft cup bralette. A basic silhouette with a really pretty lace and floral print.

Let’s Talk About Sets, Baby! Skintones

November 5th, 2014 @ Amber

Skintone Edition

While I’m not a super huge fan of wearing different shades of “nude”, every woman should have the chance to find a skintone shade bra set that matches her own skintone. I’m not going to share many skintone shades for light skin, because well, theres no need, we sort of have a huge array in light beige and peachy beige colors to choose from that you can find just about anywhere. So I’d rather mostly focus on darker toned lingerie sets for ladies with medium and darker skintones. Here you’ll find some great brands that offer skintone shades!

1. I’ve been a fan of MySkins for awhile now. They’re one of the very first brands that I remember having such a wide variety of skintone bras and panties available to women, from light to dark. They’re Plunge Bra is available in 20 different skintones! Pair it with a matching pair of panties to complete the set.

2. I am totally loving the new brand Nubian Skin right now. They offer a gorgeous variety of skintone shades for WOC, and come in beautiful colorway names like Cafe au Lait and Cinnamon. I really like the design and print of this Classic Push Up Bra. The matching knickers make this a truly gorgeous set.

3. I’ve featured the Freya Deco Vibe already, but I thought it worth bringing up again, as it comes in a blush beige and a cocoa color, making it a great molded bra and matching panty set that produces cleavage with skintone options.

4. Nubian Skin again. Yep, I like them that much. I really like this comfy looking Essential T-Shirt Bra that comes in 4 pretty shades for WOC. The smooth design and the matching knickers make this a great classic set.

5. For fairer skin, I like the Panache Andorra Bra from Bravissimo. I like the lace design of this set, and the fact that it’s more peachy than beige, which some with fairer skin prefer. I also like that it’s not called “nude” (nude for whom, exactly?), but simply “pearl”.

6. I really like Hanky Panky‘s new BARE collection. It offers a wireless bralette, camis, and panties in skintone colors. Ideal for both light and dark skintones. They’re also made of a stretchy light fabric, making it also a great set for sleeping in!

Let’s Talk About Sets, Baby! Mermaid Edition

Mermaid Edition

I love the ocean, and surfing, and everything about the sea, including loving all things to do with mermaids. To me, mermaid lingerie should consists of the colors of the ocean, greens, shades of blue, teals, and azures. So I put together a few of my favorite lingerie sets that remind me of mermaids, so you know, if you want, you could have mermaid undies in my lingerie collection!

1. One of my favorite lines from Figleaves, is their house brand Lulu Tout, which features french inspired designs, but this Amelie set with gorgeous bright blue embroidery that also looks like scales really makes this set special!

2. One of my new favorite Claudette Dessous colorways, the Malibu set is gorgeous and made of bright aqua and lime green, colors that remind me of the surf and definitely remind me of sea creatures, including water nymphs.

3. Handmade luxury brand Angela Friedman creates a lovely panty, bralette and suspender set, called the Natalie set, and it’s so pretty and made to order, with beautiful sheer turquoise mesh and black lace edging. So ideal for a fashionable mermaid.

4. This is one of my favorite sets from the Polish brand Ewa Bien. This Diana set is made of a beautiful teal and green, with embroidery that looks only too perfect for a mermaid style set.

5. Agent Provocateur has come out with this lovely bright blue Lavelle set, which features a scalloped cut out design, that reminds me of a mermaids seashells. The bright turquoise color is fit for the queen of the sea.

6. Cleo by Panache has come out with a new animal print in their popular Juna design, and the design features a pretty teal color, which makes the animal print look a bit like scales. Super cute and modern and fun!

Travel Edition

Looking for comfortable sets for traveling? Whether by car, or bus or plane, you want to be as comfortable as possible, especially with your underthings. The last thing you want to worry about on your vacation is fixing your bra straps, getting a total wedgie in uncomfortable underwear, or wearing fabrics that itch or and bunch up. In this first edition of my new series, Let’s Talk About Sets, Baby! (Based on the Salt N Pepa song, obviously) I’m going to be featuring matching bra and panty sets in a variety of needs, including, travel, holidays, etc. First up, travel friendly underpinnings!

1. Looking for comfort? Try this super soft bamboo set from Les Lunes, featuring their Sheer Heaven Mesh Bralette and their matching All Girl Bamboo Jersey Boyshorts. Available in Black, Iris, or Bare and sizes XS-L. The bamboo is so soft and stretchy and offers some support without an underwire, and the cute cut-out style makes this set anything but boring.

2. Every girl needs a basic black set, and the Negative Underwear Sieve Set offers all the comfort and cuteness without the frills. This Negative Underwear is comfortable, made in Colombia, of super soft material. The panties are soft and feel great to wear, and the bra is available up to size A-D cups. Breathable and light while providing support and cute briefs in a black mesh style.

3. Comfort doesn’t mean you can rock fabulous cleavage. The super comfy and total cleavage queen Deco, from Freya, just released this new Freya Deco Vibe set, which comes with the famous Deco in one of three colors and a matching brief or thong. Comfort and cleavage can go hand in hand with this molded plunge bra.

4. Claudette Lingerie is so well known for their Dessous line, and for good reason. This mesh set is colorful, comes in full bust sizing, and is light and airy for travel. The bra is breathable, offers lift and support, and comes in the cutest colors, like this brand new Elsa Pink Dessous colorway for AW14.

5. Curvy Kate just released their first ever strapless bra for a full bust. If you’re traveling and want support without straps showing, Luxe is your gal. Available in Cream or Black, this strapless bra and matching bottoms offers an option for those travleers who want the freedom of going strapless but still want proper support.
