We have finally reached a tipping point in terms of manufacturing which is great news for our customers. It means our volumes equate to better prices for our customers and hopefully an ever evolving and growing business.
Of course this isn’t possible without the continuing support of our customers and as a reward we will be releasing our new garments at the lowest possible price and in the case of Emma, a small loss. The reason is to reward our loyal customers and provide visitors with an opportunity to sample our quality at a reasonable price point.
Our current $10 sale on these garments has to end by the weekend of September 15/16 so take advantage today or miss out!
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!
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.
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!

Time flies when you’re loving lingerie! I hadn’t realised how long it’s been since our last post here on the Blog. The past month has been quite busy with the release of Natasha plus my very quick trip to visit our manufacturer in China which is always an adventure!
Being in Australia it’s not far for us to travel with a relatively short 9 hour flight to Hong Kong and another couple of hours by train and taxi after an overnight stay. I did tweet out a pic of the room full of lingerie we utilise to plan samples and possible new releases for the next 12 months or so.
The company owner is a very lovely lady that is certainly not backward in coming forward if she thinks one of my designs is not ‘pretty enough’ for my customers. She likes to make suggestions (I think they’re more like instructions) in terms of colors and lace types. I also met one of the office staff guys this trip that acts as a ‘model’ to test out the fit for the male physique. I think he likes it a little bit too!
I only had a single full day in China itself but there was enough time to do a little bit of shopping and try some of the local cuisine. And beer. And though English will get you by just fine anywhere in Hong Kong, I have an interpreter friend that travels with me each time I’m in China. If you are venturing outside a major city centre or want to haggle, then you will need someone that speaks the local language.
I like a good cup of tea and really enjoy the ceremony around going to a tea shop and sitting down at a tea table. The process is interesting and the flavours vary more than you can imagine. However I like a good cup of coffee too and they are difficult to come by at times. Fortunately the hotel next to mine had a Starbucks in the foyer so I could get a fix for the day. I thought the name written on the side of my cup read ‘handsome westerner’ but my friends think it says ‘prematurely grey headed dude’. My interpreter said it loosely interprets as ‘foreigner’ which is probably being polite.
On the work side of things I think the visit went well. I hope to have a few samples here by the end of next week and will then work out what to order first. I’m also planning on releasing the new black embroidered style either late this week or early in April. Fingers crossed they arrive in the next couple of days.
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.
Sandra is a nude/black mix with black lace and highlights on all three garments.
Our Sandra thong was such a late addition to the set we didn’t have time for model pics. They’ll have to wait until our next photo shoot! Note the cute lace pattern on the back.
You might have seen in an earlier post that sometimes things don’t always go perfectly to plan. But that’s understandable. If designing, manufacturing and retailing lingerie was easy then everyone would be doing it.
But it was still disappointing to discover our final production run of Vanessa teddies didn’t go quite according to plan. Though incredibly comfortable, we were getting a few emails to say the snap crotch buttons were not all staying closed all of the time.
So we’ve been considering what to do. We could possibly sew them up, or cut them up and use as polishing rags on my old Hyundai or maybe even give them to a charity for clothing perhaps? In the end we decided to give them away.
Want to know what the fault is with these teddies? The teddy has a snap crotch held together with three little push buttons. The feedback we’re receiving is that on the odd teddy, one or more of the buttons will not stay connected while moving around. That’s it! Everything else is perfect! We haven’t heard of all three failing so you’re likely to receive a decent piece of lingerie.
To get one, all you have to do is place an order valued at over $30 USD. Based on the size of whatever you order, we will add a teddy. This is only until stocks run out and although we have a lot of theses teddies, some sizes will run out sooner than others.
Sometimes, regardless of how well you think you’ve planned something, it can all turn to utter crap.
We’ve had that happen this week when we received a few less than favorable reviews on the Vanessa Teddy that we just released. This teddy is without a doubt one of the most comfortable garments we’ve made. Unfortunately, we decided to try a snap crotch instead of the full crotch and some of the buttons are less robust than we had hoped.
This isn’t affecting all the teddies and we are getting some positive feedback from many customers. However if you have purchased a Vanessa Teddy and you are not happy with the snap crotch (or any other part), get in touch with us so we can make amends!
For the foreseeable future we have removed the Vanessa Teddy from sale in the store and will work out what to do with the ones we have remaining. We may do a promo with them in the next month or two!
Doesn’t time fly when your playing with lingerie! Since releasing Anneve last month we’ve been extremely busy. Anneve has been very popular and our fastest selling garment since Genevieve.
Our next set is Vanessa and we expect her to arrive before September 12th. Vanessa is a set made up of a sheer teddy (with snap crotch), lace back thong, sheer soft cup bra and a cheeky micro skirt!
We’ve often been asked for a teddy with a snap crotch and the overwhelming feedback is also for something sheer and with a full bum. So we are hoping you love this teddy which will also be available in 4 sizes.
Our thong has a lace back similar to the Frill thong and lined front. The perfect garment to wear under the micro skirt!
