An online lingerie retailer based in Cornwall has shared her INDX SHOWSTOPPERS with Lingerie Insight.
After exhibiting at the show last week, we asked individual buyers to select their favourite lingerie, nightwear and swimwear designs from the trade show.
So far this week, Nicola Silcock, owner of the Lingerie Room in Harrogate, Michele Poynter, managing director of Mish in Wadebridge, Cornwall and Liz Brighton, owner of Odette Lingerie in Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire, have named their show-stopping styles.
And today’s the turn of Carly Homewood, owner of online lingerie boutique First Boulevard in Launceston, Cornwall.
Harlow by Bluebella
“Bluebella’s SS18 collection really stood out for us. Its edgy high-fashion designs would appeal to ladies looking to shake things up and try something a bit different. We particularly liked the Harlow high-neck halterneck bra. This piece has bags of boho festival style, perfect for rocking out at all the summer music events. The bold black florals in the mesh lace overlay are fresh and well placed for a cheeky peek under a sheer top or open-necked blouse. The bra also has an unusual provocative kick, having the overlay finishing just short of the underwire with a cute scalloped edge.”
Luisa by Bluebella
“Another fabulous style that caught our eye was Bluebella’s Luisa wired bra. Traditional lace panels are re-invigorated by the sharp geometric cut and combined within the bold lines of a cage style bra. As more racy styles are no longer confined to the boudoir, this piece has great potential to ‘be seen’ if styled in the right way. We also think the co-ordinating brief, thong and high-apex bra in the Luisa range offer great options for ladies to mix up their look to suit their mood. Today’s fashion-forward women want cross-over styles that will help them to express their individuality, feel empowered and be alluring on their own terms. We think Bluebella lingerie captures this thinking and will be popular with our customers.”
Decadence by Scantilly
“Scantilly By Curvy Kate has become a firm favourite with our customers, offering exquisite after dark collections that embrace curvaceous silhouettes and channel every woman’s innate sensuality. We found it difficult to choose our top style from their new collection, but if we had to choose one, it would be the Decadence balcony bra, suspender, bare faced brief and thong, as this range has a very strong design. The contrast pearly satin bands paired with the sheer black all-over mesh fabric create theatrical drama. Flirty and fun, the balcony shape offers great uplift whilst the cute central bow and charm finish the style perfectly. We have stocked Scantilly By Curvy Kate for a while now and customers report a fabulous fit in a great range of sizes. We love that Scantilly offers sumptuous unapologetic designs in DD-HH cup sizes.”
