Bianca & a few statistics

How fast has this year gone?  It seems like only a moment ago it was September and now Christmas is right upon us!  I think it could be summed up by this post seen on FB

The good news is we have just released our final garment for the year, Bianca.  She arrives in a bra and panty combination, made from lightweight tricot and lace.  Similar to Katie and Nadia but with a slightly different fit.

It’s been another good year for our lingerie and we will be celebrating 10 years in business in May 2019.  A few statistics for the past 12 months include-

Top 3 Panties by sales

Top 3 Bras by sales

Top 3 Lingerie garments by sales

Top 5 Garments

Top 5 Countries by sales

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Germany
  • Australia

That pretty much wraps it up for another year.  We’ll be running our Bianca sale for quite a while and I’m sure she will be in the top 5 for next year.

Be safe, have a great Christmas, enjoy your lingerie!

Look, a man in lace – The sky is falling!

Whoa! When mangerie goes viral it really does go crazy.

We shouldn’t be surprised I guess.  Stories like this surface from time to time and the response borders on hysteria from some areas.  Though it’s not everyday the son of the United States President helps us out with a disapproving tweet!  Hopefully we’ll still be allowed to visit again as I think we left some money in Vegas last trip and I’d like to have it back thanks.

The funny thing is, lingerie wearing guys are generally pretty good at hiding their love of lingerie.  So the guy laughing with you could be perusing our store in the next few days trying to decide which garment to purchase.  (Nikita or Annabelle sets for comfort only, Lara for getting wicked in the bedroom, Carmen for sleeping and Katie Romper or any of our thongs and Vanessa mini skirt for getting in the mood…fast!

And it’s not all about the bras.  Our critics endlessly ask ‘but why the bra’ and the answer is simply because some of our customers love the feeling it gives them.  Some guys only love our briefs and are not into the bras at all.  Some like the lingerie because they love the one piece fit and feel.  It’s a personal choice.  Wives and girlfriends tend to buy their partners briefs or thongs as gifts with Valentines Day now only second to the Cyber Monday sale in terms of volume.

Seriously, just because one person doesn’t agree with another persons choice in wardrobe/hairstyle/sexual preference/political persuasion/religion doesn’t make one or the other right or wrong.  It doesn’t make one person better than the other.

Fortunately, we have thick skins here at HommeMystere (covered in super lightweight sexy lingerie) and we will move on.  To the next design..

You can’t Trump this!

Ordinarily, any company getting an endorsement from the son of a President would be awesome.  And we came close with Donald Trump Junior tweeting ‘who is pushing this garbage’ on Twitter this morning (Australian Time). It was in relation to a story written online in another part of the world.

At first I thought it was just #fakenews because there’s just so much of it about these days.  Then I wondered why Don was reading the article anyway.  And following up with a tweet!  Well, we don’t really care and as a thankyou to Mr Trump (Jr) we have set up a 24 hour coupon code trump that provides 20% off.

Buy HommeMystere Locally

 

It has taken some time, but HommeMystere now has an entirely separate store dedicated to wholesale sales direct to retailers.

Located at www.hommemysterewholesale.com, the store allows approved businesses to purchase our garments at wholesale prices for their own stores.

One of the reasons many visitors choose not to purchase direct from us is the tyranny of distance and the import taxes they are liable to pay as an order enters their respective country.

Allowing stores to purchase the stock at a wholesale price reduces the tax obligation for the retailer and provides a local point of contact for the customer.

So if own a store and think HommeMystere might be a nice addition to your range, please get in touch via the application form.

If you’re a current customer and would like to purchase from your local shop, please pass on our details!

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.

 

Welcome Lara, Carmen and Lara!

Time is getting away from us and August has crept up quite fast! This week we have released two new bodysuits, the Lara and Carmen.

These are both beautiful garments designed to make you feel sexy as hell and incredibly comfortable.  The Lara Bodysuit has a snap crotch with five robust buttons for easy access and collar that looks great and feels awesome!  This is figure hugging lingerie that will love you regardless of your shape or size.  It is also a great unisex item that your partner will enjoy too!

 

Lovely Lara.  High Neck, Snap Crotch and Unisex too!

Carmen is the perfect sleepwear garment.  It is the best sleepwear you will ever have.  No exaggeration.  The soft lace shoulders will not move, the front lace is soft and the microfiber bottom is soft, supportive and comfortable.  The front section is cut to support your package while allowing enough room for comfortable expansion and an uninterrupted sleep.

Carmen.  The best sleepwear piece available for our guys!

And of course there is another new Lara too.  After eight years of my constant lingerie addiction, Lara (wife of more than 2 decades!) is going to take on the day to day running so I can concentrate on some other projects.  Maybe our lingerie needs a women’s touch?  Either way, please make Lara welcome!

To mark the arrival of Lara, Lara and Carmen, we are currently doing 30% off across the store.  Just use the coupon code word bodysuit to take advantage of the offer.  Minimum spend is $30.  Ends August 20.

Valentines Day Gifts and Tips!

So you’re looking for something to buy your guy for Valentines day.  First, let’s work out where your guy sits in the world of lingerie-

* Is he into lingerie but he keeps a low profile because you’re not into it?

* Perhaps you’re both open minded and love dressing up and having some fun?

* He’s fully committed to lingerie and loves our underwear

* He knows nothing about lingerie but you think it might be fun and kinda sexy to see him dressed up?

To begin, if your partner is into lingerie and doesn’t make any kind of fuss about it even if you know, then choosing something is easy.  Because he won’t care what you purchase for him – he’ll just be thrilled that you thought of purchasing lingerie at all!  If your guy fits this profile, then pick anything you like and he’ll love you for it!  Have some fun yourself and go with Lucy if he’s into thongs and Katie if he prefers briefs.

Lucy is a crotchless thong and peekaboo bra designed for fun!

If you’re both into lingerie then the easy answer is sit down with your guy and choose something together.  If you prefer to make it a surprise then you will likely know what styles he likes and doesn’t like.  Looking for something feminine in a full set? Try Anneve.  Want something comfortable and fun?  Try a Katie Romper.  Want a comfortable set that’s a little subtle?  Retro is the best bet.

Retro Gold is our Very High Cut brief and matching bra.

Is your guy one of our lingerie fans.  Can’t wait for the next new release and has a bit of everything in the drawer?  If you know our business model then you will understand that once we sell out of something then it’s gone for good.  If your guys has a drawer full of our lingerie then find out what he loves best!  Shouldn’t be too hard because he’ll be favoring that special pair of panties or that bra or teddy all the time.  Just find out what it is and purchase a couple of them so he has spares before we run out of stock!

Or do you fall into the last group.  Perhaps you’re the one interested in lingerie for guys and you want to dress him up and have some fun.  But you don’t know how he’s going to take it?  Or you’re concerned he may not like the idea?  If he’s absolutely a beginner in lingerie and you have no idea what his reaction might be, then go with the PinStripe range.  The boyshort, brief and vest are all fairly masculine looking but are made from beautiful soft fabric.  If you think he’s a step up from that range and you really want to see him dressed up then we recommend Miranda for a full satin feeling or Heart for a brief playful print.

 

If your guy is new to lingerie, try him out on something subtle like PinStripe.

Tracy has arrived

What a great time to release some swimwear! Our friends in the northern hemisphere are freezing so the only practical place for many will be in a nicely warmed up spa.

Fortunately, we’re in the middle of a mini heatwave here in Australia so it’s a great time for our guys to try something a little different.

There’s no doubt those of you into lingerie have perused the women’s swimwear range from time to time and considered the idea of having you’re own tie side brief or one piece swimwear to try.

Lucky for you, so have we.  And here it is.  Much later than anticipated, Tracy has arrived in a brief, halterneck top and one piece.  We decided if swimwear was your thing, then you may as well stand out from the crowd and do it in something hot pink!

Swimwear

I can’t imagine too many of you wearing this set on a public beach but if you do, I’m sure it will attract plenty of attention!  And you have to send us a pic for our Tumblr feed too please!

To celebrate the release of Tracy, you can receive 30% off when you spend $40USD or more.  Buy the brief and top or the one piece alone for a total of more than $40 to receive the discount.

Just enter the coupon code word ‘swimwear‘ when going through the checkout to take advantage.

Limited time only (10 days or until stocks run out) and won’t be discounted again until May/June so take advantage today!

Tracy Swimwear set

 

Katie arriving soon!

With only a week until our biggest sale period of the year, we’re pleased to announce that Katie has arrived and will be available for purchase from Thursday November 24th.

The Katie set is comprised of a lovely blue fabric that is almost sheer, with black lace edging.  The soft bra and panty will be on high rotation in your lingerie drawer but we’re even happier with the design and fit of our first romper outfit!

Made with a full front, open back, crossover straps and cute shorts on the bottom, the Katie romper will be a favorite.
