It’s a busy time of year in store for our fitters but Maire, from Solihull has some hints on tips on getting (or giving!) that perfect gift for Valentine’s Day!
It’s that time of year again where our partners, fiancés, husbands and boyfriends are trying to find us the perfect gift for Valentine’s. How often have we all opened a beautiful lingerie set on St. Valentine’s Day and it’s been the wrong size? I thought it was about time we gave that special someone in our lives a few tips to help them picking out the perfect set this year.
Now we all know that sometimes our loved ones need some hefty hints on what to buy us so how about printing this out and leaving it somewhere they’re likely to find it to make sure you get what you want on Valentine’s Day?
This is very important and I would say is the area that’s the easiest to fail at. How about taking a look in your other half’s lingerie draw when she isn’t looking, this will help you in two ways. Firstly it will help you determine the size you need to buy and secondly whether she wears the same size in each type of bra.
When routing through your other half’s lingerie draw take note of what styles she likes to wear. Does she like to wear Basques or bras? Are they moulded or non-moulded? Are they sexy or delicate? Take note of what you find – you may want to play it safe and buy things similar to what she has or you might want to take a chance with something a little bit different.
You might also want to consider colour. Some women might tend to stick with more practical colours like black or white, but others might like a splash of colour. Again you might want to play it safe with her favourite colour or be daring and buy a colour she doesn’t already have.
Some women always wear matching sets and others don’t but for a present I’d always go matching – that’s what makes the present special and thoughtful. Make sure you take note of what size the lady in your life wears to ensure you buy the right size in the bottoms. It’s also important to think about what style of bottoms she prefers and feels comfortable in- a thong, short, or brief?
Wrapping is essential, and all our stores offer a gift wrapping service which starts from £2.95, so no excuses for those of you who hate wrapping presents!
If you’re really struggling to get her something she’s going to love, always remember you can get a gift voucher, which means your partner can come in and choose what she would like at a time which is convenient for her. If you would like we can also book her in for a fitting at any of our stores to help her choose what to spend her voucher on.
Finally always remember it’s the thought that counts, and have a lovely Valentine’s Day!

And your wardrobe too!
Do you keep trying to get more colour into your wardrobe but always end up going for the old faithful black? Well if ever there was a time to get more colours into your wardrobe, that time is now. There is an abundance of colour now in shops for new spring/summer collections, so there is no excuse for wearing so much black or grey! For an easy way to add colour to your look, invest in a few accessories in different colours that will compliment pieces already in your wardrobe. A bold coloured bag, bangle or pair of shoes will add an instant injection of colour to an otherwise plain outfit. The layering look can also work well for adding bursts of colour. A bright cami worn underneath a chunky knit cardigan will help to achieve the cosy yet sexy look, whereas, a brightly coloured coat has a much less subtle impact but is still fun!
Now, we’re not against black completely, we just think that there are so many other gorgeous colours out there, why should black get so much attention?! If you’re more colour shy, than colour happy, try the panelling trend. A simple black (or grey) dress with brightly coloured panelling will get more colour into your wardrobe without giving up totally on black. Plus, when the panelling is done in the right places, the overall effect can be more flattering than plain black! Who’d have thought?! And don’t stop there, bold colourful and great fitting lingerie never fails to brighten up our day!
Panache’s Tango bra comes in a beautiful array of colours including purple and red as well the staple black, white and nude. Also, the Maria bra in eye catching aqua is the perfect antidote to these wintry nights.
