Indie Loungewear and Lingerie Brand Glitter and the Moon is Closing

June 15th, 2017 @ Amber

One of my favorite indie intimates brands, UK based Glitter and the Moon is closing down 🙁 I am so sad about this. Heidi is so talented and truly brought a unique collection and designs to the lingerie market for the past few years. From gorgeous robes, bed jackets and babydolls. Everything is so well made, and all of my pieces from the brand always feel very special and high quality. I am going to miss this brand. This is a friendly reminder that we must support indie brands and women entrepreneurs not only with retweets ans likes, but by buying from these brands to help them stay afloat. It’s a good reminder to me that I want to focus on buying from small brands, and showcasing as many small brands on the blog as possible.

If you haven’t tried Glitter and the Moon yet, or if you’re already a fan like me, hurry and shop the closing sale for 50% from now until June 30th. This is your last chance to grab up a truly unique and gorgeous pieces of vintage inspired loungewear from the brand. They offer free worldwide shipping! Please go support Heidi and buy a few items before the brand closes its doors for good at the end of the month.

Review: Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl

April 27th, 2017 @ Amber

I’ve been a fan of Mimi Holliday for awhile now, but I usually considered them a brand for core sizes and not full bust. I had recently seen a few super cute styles from the luxury brand that happened to come in F+ cups and I was so excited to try the brand as a full set. Though I have a few pairs of Mimi Holliday knickers, this would be my first matching set. I was smitten with the sweet minty green and pink of the Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl set, made of embroidered cups, eyelash lace, and sweet pink trim with a little bow at the center gore. So pretty! The matching brief features a sheer panel, embroidery at the gusset and lace at the hips as well as matching pink trim and bow. I love when a set is both really pretty and sexy at the same time and Tilt a Whirl definitely seems to fit the bill. I was unsure of sizing, I had read that the brand ran small, or that the brand ran big, so I ended up choosing a great band size but a cup size too small, so the bra fit isn’t perfect on me, but I love the shape and lift so I’m going to keep it and just remember to size up next time! The band is true to sure, but I would definitely say the cups run small. This design maxes out at a G cup, so if this happens, you could size down in the band or even up in the band if you needed extra room in the cup and don’t mind adjusting the back band. The knickers are super cute, they seem to fit true to size if not just a bit snug. I really like the eyelash lace on the cups, the embroidered lace, and the semi-sheer unlined cups. The colorway is lovely, in a sweet candy coated seafoam green and bright pink silk trim.

The straps are adjustable and comfortable. You can see that the bra is snug on me in the cups by at least a cup size, but I still think this bra is so darn cute! It’s really comfortable too, and I like the amount of lift and support it provides while still being dainty with the eyelash lace trim. This paneled cup offers a nice shape and would look even nicer in one size bigger. I had thought of exchanging the size, but honestly I want to wear this immediately and don’t think I could wait to return this back to the UK and await a new size. This set definitely has me interested in trying more Mimi Holliday bras in the future! I can’t wait to try some of their other styles that are available in larger cup sizes. I love that the designs still look fashionable and fun like we see in more core designs, but are available in some fuller bust sizes as well without making me feel like I’m wearing a full bust constructed bra. I’ll be lounging around in this set this for Spring and Summer! You can find the Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl collection as well as the Comfort Bra and matching Knicker that I have in this post at Mimi Holliday.


Empreinte Pompadour for SS17

April 27th, 2017 @ Amber

Fairy cotton candy sugar floss princess. That is the best way for me to describe this absolutely sweet set from luxury French brand Empreinte. For the new SS17 season, the brand has released their popular Pompadour set in a lovely sugar plum purple color, and it’s so pretty. It reminds me of a fairytale candy castle with bows, deliciously beautiful embroidery, various shades of purple and delicate lace. Gorgeous! I have the Pompadour in the soft pink color, but this light purple colorway is so pretty and perfect for Spring/Summer so I am totally gushing over this set right now. I had been getting really bored with “pretty” lingerie lately and have been craving sexier stuff, but this set, while truly beautiful, has a romantic sex appeal too. I love the feeling of being covered in intricate embroidery and lace, and this set fulfills that and so much more.

Look at that detail! Isn’t it just beyond? I am loving this set in this colorway. Unlined cups that lift and support, without too much projections. Empreinte always seems to fit like a minimizer on me and doesn’t give me a very round shape, but more of a natural shape that conforms to my breasts. The band is firm but not uncomfortable, the brand uses a firmer band to offer an ideal lift and support and allowing for a great fit and delicate silhouette. So damn sweet. I love the fluffy bow at the center gore, and the cups fit true to Empreinte sizing, which to me seems wider but deeper in the cup and is probably ideal for full on the bottom breasts, but works fine with my full on top bust. The matching brief completes the sweet set with gorgeous embroidery that is like a mini work of art. I find that their knickers fit true to size if not a bit generous. Empreinte has so many beautiful sets this season and this one is the cherry on the fluffy sweet slice of cake! You can find the new purple Empreinte Pompadour Myosotis colorway at Glamuse.
