The moment new lingerie arrives

Most men and women would agree there are few times more exciting than the anticipation of opening up a gift or surprise present. ?Whether it’s apparel, electronics or a gift card, the moment you look at the item, you are immediately weighing up if it meets your preconceived expectations.

It’s the same with us and our lingerie. ?We can plan, size and choose the colours of the lingerie we want to make but until the samples arrive we’re just hoping the idea in our head translates to something just as good when completed.

Thankfully, our first samples are looking good and exceed our expectations. ?Can’t wait to see how the others turn out!

Just a hint of a couple of samples we plan to release soon.

Once we have everything confirmed we will be organising the photo shoot.

Releasing a new lingerie style

One of the fun things about owning a lingerie label is creating something new and using new fabrics. ?You never know what might be popular, what will look good and what will feel great until after you’ve been through the design process.

It’s taken us a while to get the Vixen Lace bra and panty set to the market and it’s during the creative process we have learned a few lessons. ?Firstly, and most importantly – lace catches! ?Not the most comfortable thought when purchasing something to cover your package.

We didn’t want to compromise the deep red look of the lace by inserting an obvious lining in the front of the panty. ?We eventually settled on using a nice mesh liner that has been dyed the exact same colour as the lace. ?Comfortable without compromising the look.

The time taken to ensure the lingerie we make not only looks good, but feels great and gives the wearer a great feeling is the most important part of the design. ?Positive responses from clients is the greatest reward.

Is Valentine’s Day just a girl thing?

I was of the understanding that Valentine’s Day was a celebration where couples exchanged gifts as a sign of their mutual love for each other. ?Though it seems to be evolving into a one way exchange where guy’s are buying gifts for their girlfriends with little hope of receiving something in return.

Of course, guys expect something in return, but it’s not a physical gift you can just go into a store and purchase on credit card. ?Guys prefer to be shown appreciation in other ways.

Examples of Valentine’s Day fails are everywhere particularly with autocorrect?but here’s a few things I’ve learned about giving gifts.

It’s the gift that counts. ?All that crap about the thought is just that – crap. ?It’s like when she says ‘do whatever the hell you want’. ?It doesn’t mean you can smoke cigars in the house, spend the kids college education money on a Harley or anything like that. ?It’s actually a threat. ?She means ‘if you do that, I will tear your balls out with rusty pliers’.

Same with the Valentine’s Day gift. ?Don’t buy her fake flowers, buy the real ones. ?You know, the $100 bunch that will wither and die within the week – much like your sex life if you get her the fake ones. ?And don’t get them from the local cemetery.

Chocolates are a great gift but make sure they’re top quality and something she likes – not what you like. ?Also, make sure they’re not ‘low fat’ or sugar free and don’t include a gym membership. ?In fact, don’t ever give a gym membership to your girlfriend / wife for reasons you should understand.

Lingerie is popular gift too, but it doesn’t have to be red!?Something skimpy and sexy is great but she really wants something that is comfortable too.?Take a bit of time to investigate before you wander into your local lingerie store or shop online. ?Get the sizes of what she already has in the lingerie draw so there’s a better chance of getting the right size. ?And it doesn’t have to be a crotchless thong and peekaboo bra. ?Something tasteful and understated can be sexy too and she’ll realize you put some thought into it.

For guys, of course we recommend our lingerie. ?We’re seeing the popularity of sexy underwear for men growing year on year and Valentine’s Day is a great reason to give it a try. ?I’m sure there will be plenty of newbies getting something sexy this year saying ‘it seems so wrong but it feels soooo good’!

So ladies, take our advise and get him some underwear that’s fun and sexy and comfortable. ?You’ll want them for yourself.
