Catch My Baby Blues With Scantilly


When someone makes a lingerie set the exact same colour as your eyes, you just have to buy it don't you...?

Captivate Bra - Scantilly
Captivate High Waist Brief - Scantilly 
I've been eyeing this Captivate up since its launch, where it was modelled by the incredible Olivia Campbell, who did it the exact justice it deserves. Since then, I've seen it on Georgina Horne, Galdalou and Sophie Lewis. All incredibly beautiful women who pushed me further and further in love with it until Christmas when I finally bit the bullet and got it ordered.

This set is a whole new level of luxe, with eyelash lace edging, black wraparound detailing and beautifully soft sheer briefs, it's the kind of lingerie I've only ever previously seen in the likes of La Perla - Certainly never in a fuller bust.

There is honestly nothing I don't love about Captivate, the design, the fit and the comfort are all just spot on. If you're looking to spend a little bit more (although still only £74 for the set) for something that looks and feels like it cost A LOT more, this is the one for you. It's the kind of set that makes you feel a million times more gorgeous just knowing you're wearing it.

Note - I never edit pictures other than to add a filter. This said, I've totally edited my awful awful AWFUL 1990s lower back tattoo out of this image because, frankly even I lose respect for 16 year-old me just looking at it...
I'm wearing the size I would usually go for in a less stretchy bra (36F) and the fit is spot on. I have the XL in the briefs which are actually very room and I would say could fit up to a 20/22 comfortably.

Intoxicated By You....


Now it's time for something a little sexy. Well at least *I* think it's sexy, you may think otherwise in which case I DO NOT CARE because sexy is in the eye of the beholder and my eyes say it is.

Intoxicate Balcony Bra* - Scantilly
Intoxicate High Waist Brief*- Scantilly 
This frankly perfect set is the Intoxicate by Scantilly, who you will know as Curvy Kate's sexy sister brand. Earlier this year I shared their beautiful best seller Peek-a-boo to great response so I was over the moon when they sent me this beauty. With sheer mesh cups and delicate eyelash cups, I was already head over heels before I'd got it on my body.

I love the tie details on both the bra and the briefs - It's sexy without being full bondage which is important to me because in all honesty, chains and whips do not excite me but chips and dips do. It also allows you to get exactly the right fit with not gaping or digging in. The design is just so well thought through, making it both beautiful and functional - Something I will always, always love about Scantilly.

My wonky bosom means that bras are always a bit too big in one cup (Which you my notice in the pictures) but it's infinitely better than double boob innit? With fit, I only really wear Curvy Kate, Scantilly and Freya nowadays (I swear there is nothing more comfortable) so it's really tricky for me to give you a comparison but I can say I'm a 34FF in pretty much everything but swimwear and that's what I'm wearing here with an XL in the brief (PERFECT fit on me)

The detailing on the new Scantilly pieces is just stunning - If you wear between a DD and HH I urge you to have a nosy. You won't be disappointed.

You Brought Me Violets - Scantilly Peek-A-Boo

I've got something a little different for you here - A lingerie post with pictures that haven't either been taken in a dusty mirror or by a harassed man shouting "WHY DO YOU ALWAYS DO THIS WHEN WE'RE GOING OUT?"

The wonderful ladies at Scantilly recently presented me with the Peek-A-Boo in black, which I utterly adore - It's so different from anything else I own in that it's not a full cup and it's ACTUALLY sexy. Even on me; the girl who laughs at the words "three-way" during conference calls. So when I saw it had been released in violet I became the literal heart eye emoji.

Peek-A-Boo Violet Bra* and Brief* - Scantilly
One of my favourite things about Scantilly and their sister brand Curvy Kate is that the bras are made to hold your boobs not merely decorate them. Both the band and the straps are wide and supportive, the mesh cup encompasses my full breast and the satin sits beautifully under my bust. It is ACTUALLY comfortable which I think is rare with an aesthetically pleasing piece of lingerie. I've come to realise how rare this is and am so glad that I have a brand in my life who recognise the need for support, comfort AND aesthetics.

The briefs I'm wearing here are the full briefs but you can also go for a thong, suspenders and my personal favourite; the bare face cheek brief which is EXACTLY what it says on the tin and which, on the website, makes me both aroused and giggly. I have to say that the full briefs are equally as sexy though - with alternating satin and mesh panels you can show off your peach whilst still maintaining a tiny bit of modesty (YEAH RIGHT)

Disclaimer: If you're concerned about my nipples in these pictures (OF COURSE YOU ARE) I have airbrushed them away so as not to be arrested for committing the crime of "Being a woman who has nipples". I'm wearing a 34FF in the balcony bra and a L in the brief and can confirm that they are very much in line with the usual Scantilly/Curvy Kate fit (Where you see a bit of bagging in the mesh of the cups, this comes from the difference in my own personal cup sizes). 

The Peek-A-Boo is also available in chartreuse and red so if you have a partner who thinks that red satin is a religious requirement of Valentines day (SIGH) then point them in this direction so as not to be disappointed. As always, Scantilly ladies, I love you, I love what you do and I love the shapes you throw. Keep up the good work <3

Scantilly - Kate's saucy sister...

Not long before Christmas I was invited by Curvy Kate to something wonderful in Shoreditch ('m told that this happens less than you'd think...) (The Shoreditch bit, not curvy Kate, they're consistently wonderful).

The night was full of wine, cheese, knickers, friends, models, boobs, bums (what more could you want?!?) but the pièce de résistance was left until the end of the night... Ladies, meet Kate's sister Scantilly:


Scantilly is a new collection in D-H cups, designed for fearless women who are ready to break the rules (Like me just as soon as I've had a bath and watched silent witness...)

The set featured on the night was just magnificent. I rarely get excited by a lingerie which doesn't feature full (read huge) briefs but this just looks beautiful. I love leopard on underwear, in fact, beyond black and green, leopard is the only "colour" I allow in my lingerie drawer. It's as if Scantilly has taken all the qualities that make curvy Kate so popular (full coverage, supportive straps, wide bands) and sexed them up something chronic. I'm really really impressed.


Would you just look at Lotte? I mean, this woman could make a crisp packet look good but these pictures are just delectable. The range is out later this year and I for one am VERY excited about bringing some of the "sinful opulence" into my life.


Whilst we're on the subject of beautiful underwear and people looking beautiful in said beautiful underwear: Scantilly's lovely sister Curvy Kate are currently running their Star in a Bra competition. In fact the gorgeous Lotte above is their current title holder.

Curvy Kate are well known for featuring customer role models and promoting a positive approach to body image. They are passionate in the belief that there isn’t just one type of ‘perfect body’ - all sizes, ages, frames and heights are encouraged to enter as the brand continues to celebrate the beauty of all women. Having met quite a few of the Curvy Kate ladies, I can tell you that they are all SO different but something that they all have in common is their genuine respect, fun and desire to boost the confidence of the women they meet.


I'll leave you with one of my entry pictures which is here because I have become a massive hippy arse.

I want to look back on my life in 30 more years and be able to say that I gave everything a go and took all of the opportunities that came my way. Anyone who criticises you for having self respect and pride in who you are is more than likely a bit envious that they're not there themselves. Keep on moving upwards and if you're feeling nice, take them with you because maybe they've never heard the good, strong and positive words that you've learnt to say to yourself. So why not enter? If not now then when? And if I'm doing it, I'M TAKING YOU LOT WITH ME


I'm off to eat some quinoa and burn (eat/knit?!?) some ylang ylang now. See you in the drumming circle...
