Lingerie Spotlight – ‘Claire’ by Affinitas


 Now the doors to our new lingerie shop have officially opened, it’s time to start showcasing some of our lovely bras and lingerie that we have in store. First up in our lingerie spotlight is ‘Claire’, a beautiful pushup bra by Affinitas.


The Affinitas Claire range provides an elegant and padded underwired bra to give a wonderful push up effect. It’s brought to you with the colour options of a pretty Victorian rose pink or a gorgeous aubergine purple lace cup. The contrasting black satin shoulder straps lends itself to being a beautiful padded pushup bra for this Autumn. A matching thong is also available in both shades.


As well as looking stunning and beautiful they provide amazing support and comfort which is the top priority. To find out more about The Claire Pushup Bra, then visit our website by clicking  Moonrise Lingerie – Pushup Bras or pop in store for a FREE fitting and try one on!

Well February 14th is fast approaching so we thought we’d pinch this post for ourselves and dedicate it to some of the new sexy lingerie lines recently added to our sister site Moonrise at Midnight Lingerie, including some new plus size lingerie lines!


Shops windows always seem to fill up with blacks and reds when it comes to lingerie for Valentines Day, but we wanted to share some other colours that are just as romantic and seductive, of course we’ve thrown in some red & black for good measure!


Lingerie Advice for Men

Right fella’s there’s loads of pages across the internet on offering advice on how to choose lingerie for your girlfriend, fiancee or wife, but truth be known you’re the probably the best one at choosing underwear for your other half, (apart from her of course)! Just make sure you get the correct size and choose something similar to what she already wears and that’s pretty much it!


Babydolls & chemises are pretty good for valentines day gifts as they are usually pretty easier to size up rather than a bra set, as bra sizing and fit can alter quite a bit from brand to brand! They’re great for wearing all year round as sleepwear as well!




Lingerie Advice for Women!

If you’re buying some sexy nightwear for yourself as a surprise for your special someone, then go for something that’s flattering, (quite obvious I know), but comfortable as well! There’s lots of corsets and bustiers advertised and on display in shops on stick thin mannequins, but if you’re not used to wearing these as lingerie then now’s not the time to go changing! Quality lingerie isn’t cheap, so opt for something that you can get plenty of uses out of, rather than black & red and plastered in hearts!



I’ve added this blue draped chemise as it’s one of my favourites, it’s quite different, very comfortable and is really flattering without being too revealing!


So visit our website Moonrise at Midnight and send a few hints to your other halves and spread the love on Valentine’s Day. (Use code FIRST33 for 10% discount as well)!








As you know already, I run a bridal lingerie company which is going very well. However, I am always looking for new things to do to make my business different from others. Over the past year and half I have been working on designing out very own plus size bridal bra which will have a matching brief or thong and that too is all going well and shall be out soon.

I have found it really interesting designing our own bra and exciting knowing that I am creating something special for my company. The only part of designing that I had not done is the making of a bra!

So, I booked myself on a bra making course!

Here is how I did…

To start with I made a toile sample to check that the size is correct and does not need altering.


This sample was a great fit.

Once a toile sample has been done and I know it is correct I then start to cut out the patterns with the material chosen…


I have chosen a lovely black lace with a deep purple colour running through it for my top cup, and a black stretch mesh with small white polka dots on for the top cups.


I have not started to piece together my individual bra parts by tacking them before sewing them into place.


Now all my cup pieces have been sewn together, this is the result!

It is now starting to take shape.

The next step in my journey to making my own bra is to join the cups together and attach then to the side panels and add the straps.

I have had such a great weekend making this bra… I now look forward to making the matching brief.

Finding Wedding Lingerie to Suit your Bridal Gown Neckline.

Happy New Year to everyone and here’s hoping 2015 is going to be prosperous for us all. Congratulations to all the Brides to Be out there who we’re lucky enough to get proposed to over the  Christmas period. With the 2015 wedding season soon upon us I thought I’d kick Moonrise Lingerie’s Bridal Blog off with looking at different styles of wedding lingerie to suit the neckline of your chosen gown.

Image from Paper Blog

It was when I stumbled across this little infographic last year that got me thinking about this. It’s quite straight forward if you have a neckline that is fairly straight forward such as a high neck, square or even a scoop neckline, you have a multitude of options from wedding corsets, bridal bras and basques to choose from.
Untitled-1 copy
However it starts to get a little tricky if you’ve opted for a sweetheart, off the shoulder or an illusion neckline. These styles of neckline will send you down the route of strapless wedding underwear solutions, which there are plenty but you need to be prepared to look a little harder, particularly if you’re needing a particular colour or a size that isn’t commonly stocked on the high street.
Untitled-2 copy
Many popular styles of wedding dress are being designed with low backs which makes it slightly more trickier to find low back bridal lingerie that’s also strapless. With all of this in mind it’s worth leaving yourself about 6 – 8 weeks to get your wedding lingerie in order, and definitely have it in plenty of time for your final dress fitting to allow for any last minute alterations.

Low Back Wedding Corset

Now the v-neck, halter and halter strap neckline may well be able to accommodate strapless wedding underwear solutions however for bustier brides who require a plus size bridal underwear solution for greater support then a halter neck bridal bra option may be needed.
A handy tip that some of our brides have used is to have small press studs sewn onto their bra straps and the halter strap of their wedding gown to make sure the bra strap remains hidden out of sight. Let’s not forget that your wedding lingerie needs to be the unsung hero of your wedding day, it has to be comfortable, provide great support where needed and make you feel fabulous, and do all of this whilst remaining out of view!

For any further help & advice on finding the perfect wedding underwear for your big day then feel free to contact us at or visit our website at where you’ll find our complete collection of bridal lingerie. Because every bride deserves only the very best!

Our Lingerie Supports YOU on Your Wedding Day!

plus size wedding lingerie

How fitting that our very first own UK designed & manufactured bra was to be photographed at Armathwaite Hall, the same place where I was married a little over 4 years ago. I have to say it was an absolute pleasure to be back there and we we’re greeted with the same warm welcome as if we had never left.

Moonrise Lingerie at Armathwaite Hall

Armathwaite Hall rests beautifully on the Northern edge of Bassenthwaite Lake and has the privilege of stunning views looking down the valley. The approach to the hotel winds you through a lovely well kept tree tunnel, past the Armathwaite Spa & Beauty where Elena was booked in for hair & make-up, before opening out to its beautiful facade.

Hair & make-up done and Paul Travis from Eyedream photography setup in the Tower suite, it was time to get snapping. I was really excited to see how the images we’re going to turn out especially some of the more fun & cheeky shots trying to capture our very own ‘Uncle Sam’ feel for ‘Our Lingerie Supports YOU on Your Wedding Day’ campaign for the launch of our very first homegrown bridal underwear set.

I’d brought along various bits & pieces for props such as jewellery, shoes, veil & tiara but we were also lucky enough to loan some glasses from Karen at Bridal Eyewear. She specialises in glasses for the wedding day be it for the Bride, Groom or Bridesmaids, I think they add a little more elegance to the images & am very thankful to her.

Harmony plus size lingerie set with glasses from bridal eyewear

The day went by so quickly and with plenty of images of our plus size bridal bra set in various poses with matching thong or brief to choose from I was really happy with everyone’s efforts into the day. Now the hard work begins in spreading the word about our new release into the bridal world. I’m already looking forward to releasing the rest of our Touch of Elegance Bridal Collection as it becomes available.

Boudoir Photography by Impulse Glamour




How and why did you begin in boudoir photography?



I used to shoot a lot of fashion and portraiture but more and more clients
were asking about boudoir style photos so it was a natural progression for
us and now it’s my passion and our main business.



What do you find most challenging as in this line of photography?



I often work from a blank canvas. I never know for sure what people want or
the looks and ideas they have until I meet them however although challenging
this is what makes the job exciting and rewarding for me.






What would be your best piece of advice to the bride thinking of having a
Bridal Boudoir photoshoot?



During our consultation I always advise clients that they only work to a
level they are completely comfortable with and I offer full direction
throughout the shoot usually involving me demonstrating the poses which adds
a bit of humour to things!



You can never bring too much to a photoshoot – the more choice the better
and often it’s a good idea to bring along a parners favourite shirt or
sports shirt along with your bridal boudoir lingerie, jewellery and accessories.



The most important advice – just be yourself and have fun with it as it
helps me to bring you out and capture your personality.






Who’s work has influenced you most?



That’s a difficult one. I admire many photographers, artists and film makers
all of which have helped me to develop my own style of photography using
light, shade, make-up, outfits and props to compliment individual subjects.

 Getting Ready for Launch of Our Touch of Elegance Bridal Collection.

The blog at Moonrise Lingerie has been fairly quiet of late, it’s not that we don’t have much to talk about, quite the opposite in fact. The reason is that life is still quite hectic both here at Moonrise and at home, with our new addition demanding our attention as well as our toddler. Our house move & relocation is pretty much done and we’re all settling in nicely and starting to make new friends as well keeping in touch with those we left behind in Edinburgh.

Our new bridal lingerie range that you may have heard us mention once or twice, has turned into being quite a big undertaking but the end is in sight and we’re hoping to have lingerie in stock & available to buy by the end of September. We will be releasing our ivory plus size wedding underwear set, Harmony. Starting in a traditional plus size range from 36D – 40G with a matching bridal brief & thong to suit, our design philosophy has been to cater for the bigger busted brides & bring a selection of exceptionally high quality wedding lingerie with affordability as well.


We’ve recently welcomed, Elena Raouna, our newest member to the team to help us with the launch. I met up with Elena recently in Doncaster and I think she is the ideal model to help us introduce our new wedding lingerie collection to brides across the uk. I’m just organising the last finishing touches for our initial photoshoot, which is going to be carried out with the help of Paul Travis of Eyedream Photography. I recently worked with Paul on our pre-photoshoot and he produced some really great images with our ‘Made in the UK’ theme in mind.


I’m hoping to get some help from some of our friends & sponsors, so they too can be a part of this amazing time for us here at Moonrise Lingerie. Karen from Bridal Eyewear has already kindly agreed to loan us some of her stunning glasses for the photos and I’m hoping to be able to show off some of the gorgeous lace wedding boots from Kim at House of Elliot. The photoshoot is going to be at the same place as  we got married a little over 4 years ago now at Armathwaite Hall in the Lake District, a stunning country hotel & spa overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake.




We’re already starting work on our next set which will hopefully be following the Harmony Set soon.
Don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest and keep in touch with the latest developments here at Moonrise Lingerie.


 Pre-Launch Photo Shoot




In preparation form our new Bridal Lingerie Range coming out I thought it would be best to do a pre-shoot with our photographer Paul Travis of Eyedream Photography

This was my first photoshoot for Moonrise Lingerie and I must say I really enjoyed it. I was a little nervous at first but as it all started to fall into place it became more exciting, and Paul made it all seem so easy and relaxing.

Whilst our new model Shelley was getting her make up done Paul took a few photos of me for a profile picture.


Make up done by… Amanda from Pretty Doll Make Up.

Now I’m not very photogenic, but I think this photo looks good. Now that was my photograph done, it was now time to photograph our lingerie…

my profile image

First I wanted to get an image that would show our lingerie was being made in Britain, so we decided to use a Union Jack flag… this was a great idea as we got some great shoots…



This next one is one of my favouites…


These are all amazing shots, Paul was very relaxed and knew exactly what I was after and how to achieve it. He made both Shelley and I feel very welcome and at ease.

Now that we had achieved our Made in Britain image, it was time to get some update shots of the bridal lingerie we stock being modeled by our new model Shelley.

Shelley Modelling our gorgeous Gabriella Bridal Busiter… very popular with brides to be as it is light to wear but at the same time holds your shape perfectly.

_MG_1823 (1)

This is our Christina Wedding Corset being modeled by our lovely Shelley. This corset is a more fitted style, however still very comfortable to wear.

We decided to do this pre-shoot as we are designing are very own Bridal Bra complete with Briefs & Thongs. We are very excited about this adventure and wanted to share it with you all.

Keep an eye out for our range coming soon.

2014 is in full swing now and Spring is just around the corner, hopefully some warmer weather and well earned holidays maybe? The winter clothes are starting to get packed away and it’s time to look at your underwear drawer and have a spring clean, get rid of those bras with underwires that dig in, maybe that nightshirt that’s wearing a bit thin and those knickers that have lost so much colour you can’t remember what colour they were when you bought them! Well Moonrise at Midnight have recently added some funky & fresh sexy ladies lingerie to their underwear collections to help inspire you ladies out there who have a real passion for your lingerie!


Pretty in Pink Babydoll

View this stunning Pretty in Pink Babydoll 

A sexy babydoll is still a real favourite among many when it comes to sleepwear and this dainty little pink babydoll with contrasting black lace overlay is no exception. The underwired cups help bring shape and uplift the bust and the flowing hemline breaks up your natural outline. Pink lingerie is a real girly girls colour and has a hint of innocence to it, it should be popular for taking on holiday as well, especially in those warmer romantic nights.

 Sweet Dreams Babydoll

For those girls who want to be a bit more revealing and like to show off their natural beauty with some see through lingerie, this passion pink babydoll with delicate embroidery over the cups might be just the thing. Well defined cups place a delicate emphasis on the breasts and give a neat cleavage yet the see through flowing skirt adds to the romantic atmosphere and creates a thought provoking mood leaving little to the imagination!

Boudoir Chemise

                                             Find out more about this silky Boudoir Chemise


Sexy lingerie is all about feeling fabulous, looking great and setting whatever mood you want for the occasion. This devilish red stretch chemise really creates a retro style look with a gorgeous eyelash lace hemline. A chemise will smooth out your natural bodyshape and help create a continuous contour to your figure. Adding a pair of sheer thigh high black stockings really adds to the romantic mood, a great chemise for boudoir lingerie lovers.

Amore Chemise

                                     Perfect sexy lingerie for your honeymoon – Amore Chemise


A slightly different style of chemise but one that I think will prove quite popular as a summer nightie. A simple yet elegant design, with the black lace overlay providing a nice contrast to the underlying red or purple that it’s also available in.

 Seduce Me Chemise

Sexy Seduce Me Chemise!

This lace ribbon chemise simply oozes seduction and is perfect for those intimate nights in with your lover. Black lingerie still proves to be most popular with modern women, the addition of stockings creates a nice finish to the look.

 Flirty Skirtini Bra Set

Be Fliry in this sexy Flirty Skirtini Bra Set

Lastly for you girls out there who love to be fun and flirtatious when it comes to your lingerie then this see through pink skirtini with suspenders should prove popular. The scalloped embroidery across the balconette bra goes really well with the flounce skirt and the lace top black stocking just add to the sassy sensuality of this funky little 3 piece lingerie set.

We believe that women of all figure shapes and sizes should feel the benefits of wearing sexy lingerie and creating their own individual look to show off their natural beauty, so many of our new sexy underwear additions can be found in our plus size ladies lingerie category.
