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.

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!

valentines_lingerie_babydoll_plus_size

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!

Plus_size_lingerie_valentines

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)!

Time for a quick round up of all things wedding that’s been going on Moonrise’s Bridal Blog lately, from videography to another Real Brides Wedding!

moonrise_wedding_blog

First we looked at having your wedding caught on video. Of course it’s another expense, but we hear from so many Brides who either regret not having their Wedding caught on video or how pleased those who did take the plunge and have their day to watch over and over again.

So we caught up with Mette from Tinsel Town Weddings, to find out what advice they could offer – Doubts about Wedding Videography

 

 

We then had a little bit of fun with our wedding lingerie! Your wedding lasts all day so we thought ‘Why not? – Let them know who’s Bride?’

Have a quick look and get some fun ideas of wedding nightdresses, pyjamas and dressing gowns from our little wedding lingerie collection we put together!

Planning your own wedding can be quite a stressful task in itself dealing with venue’s, suppliers, organising guest lists, seating plans and that’s not to mention all the exciting stuff like finding the right dress! Although every Bride wants everything to be absolutely perfect it’s just as important to remember not to forget the reason behind the whole wedding and marriage. So remember to let go and have fun on the wedding morning, try not to stress over the little things, there’s always people on hand who want your day to run as perfectly as you do, so let them help. So this post is a little bit of fun with lingerie and letting everyone know just who’s ‘Bride’!

Be the Bride for the minute you awake!

I think everyone is nervous as well as excited on their wedding day, so wake up and be the bride from the minute your eyes open!

wedding_night_bride_pyjamas_2

Once you’ve had breakfast and the realisation has settled in that ‘OMG you’re getting married today!!!!’ it’s soon time to get down to business and get ready, hair, makeup, nails……& just to avoid any confusion this dressing gown is yours and only yours for the day!

Yours_truly_bridal_gown_plus

Don’t forget underwear for your first wedding night!

Then there’s your wedding lingerie for the big day itself. Don’t forget it has to be at one with you and work in complete harmony with both you and your dress. Many brides aren’t happy having their new partners see them in their wedding day underwear. Yes that’s right, it’s not always soft, lacey and romantic! So have fun with what you wear on your first wedding night as a married couple, after all first impressions count!

Wedding day underwear isn’t just about ‘finding something to go beneath your wedding dress’. You can have some real fun with your wedding day lingerie and of course the first wedding night! It’s your wedding day, so enjoy!

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.
harmony_8
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!

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.

 

 

boudoir59

 

 

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.
