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!

Our popular Satine bra has now arrived in a gorgeous new cobalt blue just in time for Christmas!
The gorgeous satin feel of this bra and the fact that it goes up to a J cup has earned it 4 and a half hearts in customer reviews.
Customers have said that it’s great for everyday wear & that the satin makes it feel more luxurious. It’s already available in an ivory and black and we have more colourways planned (a gorgeous colour coming for early spring in time for Valentine’s Day!), it’s definately one worth trying.
Have you worn Satine? What do you think?

Congratulations to Michelle and Gemma on winning tickets to the Premiere of Valentine’s Day in London last week. It was a star studded event with Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Jessica Alba, Topher Grace and many more celebrities in attendance. As you can see our competition winners seemed quite at home on the red carpet! It was lovely to meet you ladies and we hope you enjoyed the film as much as we did. If you’ve yet to see Valentine’s Day, it’s on in cinemas now.

Valentines Day is just around the corner, but in a world where e-mails, texts and twitters have taken over from actual human interaction, we ask ”where has the romance gone?”
It seems gone are the days when men would swoon their love interest with poetry and love letters, unfortunately we haven’t received a love letter since our teens and not heard any poetry since we studied it at school. And it seems that the commercial aspect of the day has taken over from its meaning. Come late January, you can’t move in any shop for stuffed cuddly toys holding hearts and other Valentine’s Day paraphernalia. Even the petrol garages have jumped on the band wagon of selling anything that could be seen as a token of affection.
However, we believe that romance does exist but that it’s merely taken on a different form, a modern form whereby a Facebook poke has become the equivalent of that flirtatious look and an ‘x’ at the end of a text means so much more than just an x. So maybe we should take a break from our hectic schedules and busy lifestyles and bring some old fashioned romance back into our lives, the sort that involves mushy words and face-to-face interaction.
Single? Valentines Day isn’t just for couples, show your loved ones that you care and treat them instead! And if you are in a relationship, make this Valentines Day about spending time with each other.
