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.

Almost all brides are sporting a delightful little secret beneath their perfect wedding gown on their wedding day for only a few to see, a beautiful garter. There are lots of traditions across many wedding ceremonies among many faiths, but this one intrigued me. The brides wedding garter was thought to be an English tradition starting from as far back as the 14th century. It was believed that the good luck and fortune of the Bride and Groom would be passed to the lucky bachelor that managed to get to keep it from the wedding day.

Early bridal garters were originally made from a piece of the wedding gown and in an effort to retrieve the brides garter from her leg it was quite often the case that dresses were getting ruined. So in an effort to avoid this, brides began wearing two garters, the second one being slightly smaller, and being a throw away garter or a toss garter. This was the garter that was thrown willingly into a group of her guests, to avoid her gorgeous gown from any ruin.

Some brides choose to place their throw away garter just above the knee and the lucky bachelor is invited to remove the wedding garter in front of a crowd of wedding guests!

There were other beliefs that retrieval of the bridal garter was a sign that the marriage had been consummated, and again that the good fortunes of  the lucky married couple would be passed along with the garter. I’m not quite sure how well this would sit with today’s society?

The wearing of the garter is enjoyed by many of today’s brides, with a wide variety of styles to choose from. Some choose to add a splash of colour to match the grooms colours or family tartan, while others opt for a an even more personalised wedding garter, with their wedding date on it, or even their names.

Another popular idea is to use the wedding garter for the brides ‘something blue’. Don’t forget the wedding garter can be a great idea for a gift from a Chief Bridesmaid and serve as a lovely keepsake from your Special Day. Whatever you choose for your garter, it’s an area where you can have a little fun, so don’t leave it till the last minute and best wishes for your big day!

I would like to welcome to our blog Flash Floozy and gorgeous headwear. Flash Floozy is owned by the amazing Marie and when I asked her is she would like to write a post for us to put on our blog she was happy to, and we are so pleased to share with this post with you. If you have any questions for Marie then please find her details at the bottom of this post… enjoy! 
 
 
 
1) Can you tell me a bit about what you do?
 
I design and hand make boho and vintage inspired headwear. I make anything from over sized floral crowns and dainty rustic halos through to Gatsby inspired feathered headpieces and glitter headbands. I love old style glitz and glamour from the 1920s and 30s, they really knew how to dress back then. But I also like easy going comfortable, gypsy bohemian and modern convenience and I think this reflects in the kind of product I offer.

2) How did you get into this line of work?



It started as a hobby really. I have always made my own jewellery and when I bought my new sewing machine I started making lace and turban headbands. I suppose it got out of control from there! I’ve always worked in the Fashion Industry but I guess the turning point was losing my job earlier this year, it gave me the push and the time I needed to take my business to the next level. I’m not a natural designer, my background is more sourcing, production and quality so I’ve kind of come at it from a different angle but I feel that this only serves as an even better platform to offer an excellent quality product.

3) I have had a look at your website and you have some beautiful items, Where does your inspiration come from when designing them?

Thank you! Its a cliche but inspiration can literally come from anywhere. I love people watching! It can be something as small as a detail on someone’s jacket, their hairstyle or make up, a building or crumbling doorway. Wild flowers growing out of a wall on the side of the road could turn out to be the starting point for your next design. If I’m watching TV I’m barely following the storyline as I am too busy looking at what everyone is wearing, or checking out the wallpaper or a lamp in the background. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world in my previous career and I think, unknowingly I have gathered most of my inspiration from those travels, especially India and Pakistan where the colours and textures can inspire any project, but the biggest inspiration has got to be receiving amazing feedback from the bride when she tells you how perfect her headpiece was on her wedding day. That’s a real buzz.

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.

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!

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.

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.
