Winter Solstice lingerie news …

Partnerships to look forward to in 2015

Rita Von Teese and Christian Louboutin - a lingerie link up that we can’t wait to see. The lingerie line, designed by Dita is labelled XXXtian in homage to Christian’s signature Xtian. This is the first time the French shoe designer has entered the lingerie market so it’s going to be an interesting departure for him. Dita’s capsule connection is a seven piece, including bra, suspenders and kimono and the price starts at £68.00 per item.

Wearing your Christmas lingerie like a pro

If you’ve ever watched those lingerie models in TV adverts and wondered how they manage to look so effortlessly sexy, we’ve got some tips to help you wear Christmas present underwear as naturally, and sexily, as they do.

1.    Start with your regular daywear - of course your lover wants to see you in your scanties, but you need to feel comfortable too and that means that you need to choose outwear that you feel happy and confident in. Blouses and stretchy skirts are easy to get in and out of, whilst tight trousers/leggings and huge jumpers can look ungainly as you try to strip them off.
2.    Make a scene - if you’re modelling your Xmas presents at home, set the mood by choosing music, lighting candles (closing the curtains so nobody gets a sneak peek!) and making sure the room is warm and your partner has somewhere to recline and watch you. If you’ve been given a sexy fancy dress outfit, like our super-cute playing doctors dressup set, consider adding a few props to your display, like cocktails served in test tubes or bandages to tie your lover to the bed in a little light bondage scenario.
3.    Don’t drink too much - Dutch courage rarely works the way we want it to. Whilst a single drink can be a great mood booster, more than a couple of tipples will leave you adrift from the moment and, in the worst of scenarios, shaky, clumsy or even throwing up! So keep the rest of the booze till after your little ‘show and tell’ and reward yourself with a second glass once the excitement is over.
4.    Take your time - dress as slowly as you’ll undress, that gives you a chance to experience your new undies for yourself and to get into the right mood to give a lovely experience to your loved one. Listen to your favourite music, take a little time to pamper yourself, and relax.
5.    Have fun - if what you’ve been given doesn’t make you feel good, there’s no need to wear it. You are bound to have something sexy and confidence building in your drawer or cupboard that you can wear and look and feel great in. The point of this experience is for you both to enjoy it and if your new lingerie doesn’t contribute to the mood, dump the gift and go for the tried and trusted garment that delivers. Once New Year’s over you can decide whether to tackle your lover about an exchange of items or just let the undies slip to the back of the drawer …

Lingerie hotel

If you’re thinking of a quick and dirty break between Christmas and New Year, our new fave haunt is Hotel Vice Versa, Paris. Kitted out entirely by lingerie designer Chantal Thomass on the theme of the Seven Deadly Sins (lust, envy, sloth, gluttony, pride, greed or wrath) the rich and elegant interiors are designed to provoke at atmosphere of luxurious thrill-seeking romance… it’s absurdly easy to get sexy in this environment!
