Reward Yourself this Valentines Day

With the new year upon us we have spent the past few days cleaning up our warehouse and looking at how many ‘seconds’ we have sitting around.

Every order that’s shipped out is checked over for faults whether it’s a pulled thread, discoloration or anything else.  Of course the occasional one slips through but we do tend to be fairly critical of what we retain as ‘unsaleable’.

So following our tidying up efforts we have plenty of this lingerie to give away.  Although the collection consists mainly of bras and panties, there are several pieces of lingerie there as well.

So from now until Valentines Day, we will be giving away our seconds with each order.  It will be a random giveaway so you won’t be able to request a specific piece.  We will try and match what we provide based on your order and try and get the sizing as accurate as possible.

The larger your order, the more we will give away.

Please keep in mind these garments are free and therefore no exchanges etc are available.  If or when we run out of garments to give away, we will make a note at the bottom of the blog.

Just a few of the 12 containers of free lingerie to give away!

 

To make the offer even sweeter, we will also provide a code so you can obtain a discount up until Valentines Day.  In 2017 the feedback we received during the Valentines Day sale was overwhelmingly positive with plenty of enquiries from women looking for something fun and sexy for their partner.  The only negative was short sale time which made it difficult for gifts to arrive at international destinations in time for the special day.

So from today until February 14,  use the coupon code valentine2018 to receive 20% off your order AND a free garment until stocks run out!

Already ordered this month?  You didn’t entirely miss out as we have been including freebies since January 1st with each order!

UPDATE: Now out of the following seconds

Small Panties, Thongs and Bras

Large Lingerie

XL Bras, XL Lingerie

UPDATE: The promotion is now over.  Please watch for our next release (Violet) which is happening in the week commencing February 19, 2018!

Our Most Popular pieces for 2017

Why did it feel like time dragged forever when I was in my teens and twenties, but as I slipped over the half century mark time seems to be speeding up!

This year has really flown by for us with HommeMystere in the middle of our ninth year, with nine new sets released since January 1.  We began with Tracy, our first swimwear set, followed by Natasha (love the back of the panty) , Krystal (full, sheer, comfortable), Frida (our only cotton set), Lara the high neck Bodysuit and Carmen the gorgeous sleepwear Bodysuit (I have 5 of these in my personal collection!).  We then released Britney (love the high neck bra style), Nadia (best ever nightie!), and finally Victoria with probably our last full cup underwire bra.

Want to know what the top 5 garments were this year?  Based purely on the number of sales, the most popular pieces for 2017 were.

No. 1 – Katie Romper.

And who wouldn’t agree this is a great piece.  The open back means it will fit just about anyone, the fabric is perfect and most importantly the feel of the romper is spot on.  You can feel the shoulder straps moving on your back as you walk, the front slides across the body and the bottom section still allows enough room to sit comfortably.  Love it.

No. 2 – Natasha Panty.

Satin is always going to be winner for those of us into lingerie.  Add the sheer stretch bum, the unusual lace pattern over the front and it was always going to be a popular choice.  For me, the floral pattern and the feel of panty is the best part.  For the most part it looks like a full panty but the lace edge on the bum kind of feels like a thong panty.  Something different.

No. 3 – Krystal Panty

Sometimes the picture I have in my mind of how a set is going to look upon completion and it actually turns out exactly as planned!  I wanted to do something sheer, but add some embroidery that lifted the panty and bra to the next level.  I wanted it to look like the most beautiful high end set any guy (or girl) would want in their collection.  Couldn’t wipe the smile of my face when it arrived.

No. 4 – Frida Panty

It only took eight and a half years but we relented and did something in cotton.  But couldn’t resist adding a chiffon patterned section at the front!  Sorry, but any guy into lingerie is addicted to satin/silk/sheer fabrics well before we get to cotton!  So it’s a bit of a surprise this one is ranked so high up.  Perhaps it’s the color and that it is just a comfortable everyday panty with an awesome bow!

No. 5 – Miranda Panty

No surprise here at all.  Made in the same style as Genevieve and Rachel, the Miranda style in XL was the fastest we have ever sold out of any style/size combination.  It is a crazy popular panty and it was a style that we did a massive (by our standards) production run of knowing it would be popular.  White satin.  Enough said.

My Personal Favorites

So most of you know I’m in this business because I wanted to be in this business.  And I doubt there is a single guy out there not jealous of my ability to make pretty much anything I want because, well because I can!  What you see on HommeMystere is really just my personal wishlist brought to life.  Sometimes they’re awesome and sometimes I miss the mark.  But here are the ones that are my personal favorites.

No. 1 – Katie Romper

See above for the description.  You can easily see how much I love this romper because I have torn apart several of them experimenting to make my second favorite garment below.  When you wear the Katie you just feel damn good!

No. 2 – Nadia Nightie

See what I did there?  Just left the top part of the Katie as it was (because it’s perfect) and decided to do a little dress at the bottom instead of shorts.  Yes it’s a bit longer than we generally prefer but I wanted it to be long enough so you could sit down on the nightie in your Nadia panty.  Silky smooth slippery fabric on silky smooth slippery fabric.  That’s ok, I know most of you understand..

No. 3 – Carmen Bodysuit

This was a surprise.  I had low expectations and was blown away by this Teddy.  So much so that I have A LOT of them on rotation.  Best teddy for sleeping ever.  Seriously.  It’s not a huge seller I have to admit, but I’m going to do another similar style because I have a serious addiction to this style of Teddy.  Doesn’t dig in, wide shoulders are comfy, just a great piece of lingerie.

No. 4 – Katie Panty

I love this panty.  I have so many of these in my personal collection it’s getting a bit out of hand.  It’s the ‘go to’ style each day without a doubt.  I will do another version of this in 2018 but will make a fuller bum, for those of us that need it.  Instead of a romper I’m looking at doing shorts and a singlet style (like the Pinstripe) that could easily be mistaken for men’s underwear but feels fantastic!  Well that’s an idea at the moment.  It could change in a heartbeat!

No. 5 – Lara Bodysuit

Named after my lovely wife of forever, this really should have, and could have been number 1 for me.  It’s just too damn sexy for its own good!  The snap crotch is perfect, the feel is incredible and it magically makes anyone look fantastic!  No kidding!  This Teddy will fit just about any man or woman and they will look awesome.  The high neck feel is exactly what I wanted and while Lara can be worn overnight, but she is best suited for special occasions.  Wear Lara for a few hours at a time and you won’t be disappointed.  She looks and feels gorgeous.

To be fair, styles released later in the year such as Victoria and Nadia will have lower sales volumes than Katie which was released in November 2016.  However I’m sure those ones will rise to the top next year.

 

The SALE is coming

Not long to go now and we will be having one of our two largest annual sales!  The United States Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday period is perhaps one of the biggest global sales events of the year.

Britney Has Arrived!

We have had a pre release of our Britney set online for a few weeks now while we wait for the bulk of the stock to be manufactured and shipped over to us.

Fortunately things are running ahead of schedule and all garments have now arrived.

To mark the arrival of this set, we are currently running a sale of 40% off Britney until September 23rd.  To take advantage, just use the coupon code word Britney when going through the checkout.  No minimum order.

The Britney panty is made from microfibre in a similar pattern to our Frill design although a little lower across the bum.  Still a perfectly comfortable item for all day wear.

The Britney thong with the lace back will be popular for those of you wanting plenty of package room combined with a stretch lace that separates the buns!  This is a really lovely piece of lingerie.

HommeMystere is Growing

With the Aussie financial year behind us, we recently decided to change the warehouse layout of our lingerie.  Now we have entered our ninth year it’s sometimes difficult to remember where we started and how we have grown over the years.

So when we recently began adding some shelving to assist in the layout of our little warehouse, we decided to have a look back at where we began.

Like any small business, we started off from home with a few plastic boxes to hold the lingerie.  At the time we were making just a few of each size.  Literally.  So if you ever purchased a Taboo garment, they are pretty scarce now!  While we couldn’t find any pics of the first few ranges of lingerie, we did find this one.  Don’t mind the mess.  It was pretty crazy for a while dodging boxes around the house!

It was lingerie in every direction for quite a while.  Our little dog Peppa is going onto 14 years old now!

Then we made our first step into outside storage.  It had to be somewhere close, gave good access and was secure.  We found a storage company renting single garage space with roller door but no power.  It was pretty cozy but we managed to get things done there for about 18 months before we outgrew the space.

It was a pretty cozy space but did the job and cleared the house out!

After getting tired of moving cartons, squeezing in and out of the place and worrying about weather intruding into the shed, we moved on to something bigger.  It was time to move into a double garage space at a different location and it even had a powerpoint!  We could make up orders at night and even have a heater for the winter.  Luxury.

Stepping it up a notch with access to power.

After growing even more we decided to make a leap into a real industrial unit with normal rent, access to the internet, power and phone.  Heady days.  It was a decent size lease and what we would describe as feeling like it was a ‘real’ business.  Not just a fun hobby to do at night and weekends.  There was plenty of space and we set up for the long term.

There was still some spare room at the front of the warehouse so we decided to go crazy and design a showroom any lingerie loving guy (and plenty of women) would be pleased to visit.  It wasn’t pretty at the start but it soon turned out to be something special.

Some nice carpet, a bit of colour, a chandelier, wallpaper and nice lingerie.  What more could you want.

Unfortunately we didn’t get as many visitors as we hoped -although those that did come in certainly enjoyed the experience.  Then we had suffered a hit when our lease was unexpectedly ended early.  All that setup for nought.  And we had to move quickly.  So we moved into our current position and have recently added shelving to enable easier picking of orders and to tidy up the place.

A showroom might still be on the agenda for one day but for the moment we need to regroup, expand our range of lingerie and and build the online business.

Not quite Amazon size but we're pretty proud of our little warehouse

We think we can stay here for a few years yet provided our lease continues to be renewed.  Fingers crossed we can outgrow this place too one day!

Looking kind of official now!

None of this would be possible without the continued support from all our customers.  Makes us wonder where we might be in another 5 or 10 years!

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Happens in Vegas…

We’ve just returned from a personal trip to Las Vegas to celebrate a birthday milestone.  Eight nights in Vegas is clearly too much in one go and I’m surprised booking agencies don’t have pop up warnings against staying more than a few days!

But it’s a great place to go out with friends and we may even do something similar in another 10 years or so if the body is up for the challenge.

Aside from the usual tourist things like the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and shooting weapons which are foreign to us in Australia (my thumb will recover from the 44 magnum I’m told!), there was one thing I did notice around the strip and Freemont Street.

People wear anything they want in Vegas.  Seriously, on several occasions I thought mangerie is pretty tame compared to what was going on around some of those casinos.  But I also realised that just because you can wear something, it doesn’t mean you should!

All in all it was great trip and the hospitality from everyone we met was incredibly friendly.  A special thank you to the staff at Ellis Island Casino as we pretty much adopted the place as our Australian base due to the great service, affordable drinks, fun gambling and the chicken fried steak.

Apologies to anyone that may have received hearing damage from our group singing Aussie songs at all hours of the night and requesting Cold Chisel, AC/DC and Men At Work from anyone with a musical instrument.

The show highlight had to be Absinthe at Caesars which is the most politically incorrect funniest jaw aching show I have ever seen.  But take this tip and do not, under any circumstances book seats close to the stage unless you want to be part of the performance or have a desire to be insulted continuously throughout the show!  Very very crude and funny.

While in Vegas it became clear very early that I was not going to make a fortune gambling and so we spent most of time touring the area and visiting the various bars.

We also decided to have our birthday/stocktake sale in preparation for more stock that is due to begin arriving mid June.

For just a few more days we are offering 40% off across the store if you use the coupon code vegasbirthday when going through the checkout.  Sale ends next week!

Miranda has arrived at HommeMystere

After quite a long wait, Miranda, our new set has finally arrived and is now available.  Miranda is comprised of a panty, garter belt and bra set made from stretch satin and sheer fabric.  Miranda looks great and feels even better!

Subscribers to our newsletter will be familiar with our recent supply issues that appear to have finally been resolved.  That’s the good news.  The even better news for our clients is we had to make several thousand of the Miranda garment which gives us a little more leeway in pricing.

So for visitors wanting to try a little satin in very comfortable underwear, Miranda is an ideal starting point.  And to make it easier for you, we are offering a special offer for the remainder of this month of 30% off the retail price.  Just purchase a minimum of any two Miranda pieces (bra/panty – panty/garter – panty/panty) or any other combination.  Use the coupon code miranda16 when going through the checkout and you will receive 30% off.

Sale will end October 31 2016!

Update – If you unsuccessfully tried the coupon code, it is now working again!  Available for use once per customer.

 

New style arriving soon

Well it’s been a while since our last release and something new has been long overdue.  The good news is we’ll have the white satin set (pictured below) arriving within the next couple of weeks.

White Satin Set

 

The as yet unnamed set is comprised of a bra/panty/garter and is made very similar to the Genevieve set which has since sold out in a few of the sizes.

The satin is a one way stretch fabric that is both light and comfortable to wear and we expect it to be very popular.  We also had to produce quite a few more of this style than we would normally and that means our customers will benefit.

Newsletter subscribers will receive an unprecedented offer on this set when released in exchange for the patience shown by our loyal customers.  To receive the offer just visit our main page and subscribe to our newsletter.

Want to know about our sleepwear/swimwear sets?  We should have more news on those in early October..

Sandra is on the loose!

We finally have Sandra available in our store!  Woo Hoo!  She is the second last set from our 2015/16 Collection with just one more set left to arrive.  Sandra’s family comes in a full panty, soft cup bra and there was a late decision to include a thong just for fun!  Read about her in the store and please pay close attention to the Product Descriptions for each garment so you get the sizing right.
