Halloween Lingerie – Trick or Treat?

Satine Nouveau Basque


Halloween is coming up and we all love to get into the spirit of the celebration, but if you feel you might be past dressing up as a pumpkin and you are looking for something altogether more dramatic and sexy, look no further. We have selected some Halloween inspired lingerie, whether you are having a quiet night in or you are partying the night away, treat yourself this Halloween.

We know how much you love the Satine shape, so now you can have that great shape in a Basque. The Satine Nouveau Basque by Bravissimo, is no ordinary Basque, it has fully adjustable multi-way shoulder straps that can be worn three ways. This Basque is available in this glamorous art nouveau black print. It is underwired and lightly padded and will give you a smooth silhouette under clothes. It also has detachable suspenders and is available with briefs or a thong. If you are going to a fancy dress party, you could even wear it as outerwear (Madonna style) throw on a long skirt, cape and heels and you are all ready for your spooky night out.    Lola Luxe Basque




The Lola Luxe Basque by Bravissimo is pure luxury and it’s incredibly sexy. This is an underwired style with embroidered lace and central bow. It will give amazing shape and it’s comfortable too. It comes with fully adjustable detachable suspenders, and you can buy the matching Lola Luxe Briefs or Lola Luxe Thong. We have had fantastic reviews about this Basque. You say  ‘it’s absolutely stunning, so comfortable and sexy ‘  ‘such a great shape, makes me feel amazing’ and ‘I recommend this Basque to every woman’ The Lola Luxe Basque is a real investment and will become a loved piece for every occasion, not just Halloween.  It’s also available in ivory and scarlet.

Garbo Basque


This sensational Basque is a new style and we are very excited to bring it to you.

The Garbo Basque by Bravissimo, comes in blue with black scalloped detailing on the cups and the body of the Basque, which adds to the drama of this style and makes it ultra flattering. It will give you a sexy shape, but still offer you great support and comfort. It is available up to a K cup and comes with matching briefs or the Garbo Thong. This Basque will provide plenty of thrills for Halloween or any other special occasion.

Tips for Putting on a Basque

Basques can be a little tricky to get on, if you do not have help to hand, but if not we find that some ladies benefit from doing a few hooks up at the front first (or all if easier) and then gently and slowly twisting this around to ensure that the wiring is not pulled out of shape. You may need to alter your size slightly and adjust the cup size to get the best fit for both your boobs and your body, if this is too firm in the body section.


We hope you have enjoyed our spooky selection. Please leave your comments as  we love to hear from you.

ghouls just wanna have fun

This weekend might just feel a bit longer than last weekend, as the clocks go back on Sunday morning, so we will all get an extra hour in bed to recover from our excesses…bliss!

It is also Halloween on Monday. A day that most kids look forward to, as they can spray their hair, cover themselves in fake blood and knock on peoples’ doors and ask for money or sweets, (what’s not to like!)

Some ladies up and down the country will also be channeling their inner child, by dressing up as ghouls, ghosts and zombies. Most gatherings over the weekend will have a Halloween theme, so if you have been invited to a party, or you are going out with friends and the dress code is black and dramatic, don’t panic! Even if fancy dress is not your thing, Bravissimo have some beautiful black dresses from Pepperberry that would fit the bill perfectly, but won’t spook you out in the process. With the right Halloween-style accessories and make-up you will look drop dead (see what I did there?) gorgeous.

Cowl Back Jersey Maxi Dress

Cowl Back Jersey Maxi Dress

A new dress in the Pepperberry collection is the utterly stunning Cowl Back Jersey Maxi Dress. This maxi has a low cowl detail at the back of the dress, giving this dress the wow factor. There is a mesh panel that covers your bra, and there are tabs built in to the dress that will hold your bra firmly in place. This dress has cap sleeves with a double row of tiny diamante edging on the sleeves. Wear this dress with very high black platforms, backcombed hair, and you may even want to add a diamante hair clip. Go heavy with the eye make-up, dark smoky eyes in black and midnight and pale lipstick makes a lovely contrast.
Embellished Bandeau Dress

Embellished Bandeau Dress

Another great LBD is the Embellished Bandeau Dress from Pepperberry. This is a gorgeous prom style dress, it has a boned bodice and is in a taffeta look fabric. It is fully lined and has a black diamante panel just under the bust. This dress has a net underskirt and detachable straps, so can be worn as a sexy bandeau too. If you are proud of your waist, then this dress will make the most of it. Some fabulous sky-high heels will finish this dress off. Go sixties inspired with the hair and make-up. False eye lashes are a must and some huge eye flicks and bright red lips, paint your nails black and backcomb your hair and pin it into a beehive.

Whether you are spending the weekend carving pumpkins and cutting holes in sheets or whether you are escaping Halloween fever and doing something completely different. We hope you have a really enjoyable one. And if you can’t be good, be scarey.
