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!

 Lingerie Spotlight – Ivory Floral Babydoll

Kick back after your Wedding Day in this beautiful ivory floral babydoll.


It’s made from a gorgeous rigid eyelash lace and features padded satin underwired cups for just the right amount of comfort and support.


This fab little bridal babydoll features a ribbon sash and a removable brooch and comes complete with a matching ivory thong!







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)!

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.

 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.

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.

Pastures new for Moonrise Lingerie’s  wedding underwear.


It’s only May, and it’s been a busy year already for us at Moonrise Lingerie, both in business and personal, and still the rolling stones continues to gather pace!

We were already awaiting the arrival of our second baby due in February, who has now graced us with his presence, a lovely baby boy weighing in at 8lb 14oz!
However, at the end of 2013 we learned that my husband’s job was to be moved to Bristol, and him along with it, only a week before the birth! For those of you with young families know only too well, how much easier it is when there are two of you to help around the house and this in turn gave me the time to run Moonrise Lingerie.

We’ve always been a busy little family and normally work better when there’s a lot on,  probably leaves less time to argue! So onwards we marched, getting everything arranged, from travel to accommodation to getting our house ready for sale, as well as making sure all of our brides got their wedding underwear in time for their dress fittings.

I have to say the past few months haven’t been without their difficulties, settling into a new routine with 2 young children, recovering from pregnancy & for the majority of time without my husband. He was doing what he could whilst he was away, but there’s no compensation from being together and working as a team.


Mr & Mrs

If that wasn’t enough we been steadily working on our very own bridal lingerie range with our wonderful designer Elyzabeth Beswick. We first met up with Lyzzy in the summer of 2013 and that’s when our collaboration began to work together and bring a new wedding underwear collection to the U.K.’s wedding market.





As people often say “it all happens at once” and it certainly is; our first additions to our “Touch of Elegance” range is planned to be available on our online store at in the summer and will include two plus size wedding bras available in white and ivory with a matching thong or brief.




So what’s coming up? A big move to Bristol, along with all the challenges a family move brings, schools, nurses, doctors & dentists, but a lot of excitement with it. Making new friends and working with local like-minded wedding businesses.

Our time in Edinburgh has been an amazing adventure, and it will always be the place where Moonrise Lingerie was born. We’ve met some amazing friends who helped along our journey – Edinburgh Brides, Roseparks of Edinburgh, and not forgetting the lovely Alison of Mrs PandP, a real ambassador for the wedding industry.

 Keep an eye out for our new wedding underwear launch where two lucky Brides will be winning a bra & brief set in our first ever competition!




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

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.

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!
