Undercover Lingerista's big bloggiversary competition!


   It is with great excitement that I write this blog post because it was exactly one year ago today that I began my foray into the world of lingerie blogging - a journey that has ultimately given me the chance to share my love for lingerie with people from different countries, ages and walks of life.

   I started my blog last year in March, coinciding with the run up to my university finals and it was a bit of a therapeutic sideline activity, but over time it has evolved into something that I am truly proud of and dedicate a lot of time to.

   I owe thanks to a lot of people for helping me get to where I am today and I am so appreciative of the love and support that family, friends, fellow bloggers and lingerie brands have given me over the past year. A special thanks goes out to Bravissimo who re-fitted me and got me out of my badly fitting 34D's into 28FF's, which are so much more comfortable and supportive. This refitting opened the door to the discovery that a larger bust doesn't mean that you have to compromise on style. Consequently, I have found some amazing lingerie brands and retailers that cater to my size AND offer gorgeous designs!

   Most importantly, I want to extend my gratitude to all of my readers and Facebook and Twitter followers. It has given me a lot of confidence and joy to know that people are interested to read my reviews and share in my passion for lingerie, swimwear and fashion.

   As a thank you to everyone, I have decided to launch a big bloggiversary competition! There are some amazing prizes on offer, thanks to the lovely, supportive companies that have kindly sponsored me!

You can see what is up for grabs below...



I regularly write about Freya to share my love for their unbelievably comfortable and pretty bras and swimwear pieces that are ideal for the larger bust. Freya are kindly offering the winner:

 1 lingerie set and 1 swimwear set of their choice!


Curvy Kate are another brand that I love for their supportive and stylish lingerie, as well as for their great ethos of celebrating womanly curves. They will be offering the winner:

 1 lingerie set of their choice!




Playful Promises stock some seriously gorgeous boudoir lingerie, quirky swimwear and pin-up pieces that are sure to make you feel like an old Hollywood starlet. They will be offering a generous:

 £75 voucher to use online or in store in their boutique!


Affinitas Intimates is a new and exciting find for me, catering to a wide range of sizes, occasions and tastes. Their stunning designs would make any woman feel a million dollars! They are generously giving away:

THREE Affinitas Intimates lingerie sets - from either the 'Affinitas' or 'Parfait' collections!




Charnos is every bit the stylish lingerie brand, bringing its customers elegance, exquisite design and a great fit. After falling in love with the Hourglass corselette, I am delighted to say that Charnos will be offering the winner:

The 'Cherub' lingerie set (in the colourway of their choice)!




Frauke's lingerie brand Fraulein Annie is already kicking up a storm with its feminine and glamorous lingerie pieces. The lucky winner will receive the much lusted after:


 'Falling in Love' bra and brief set in Chestnut/Black!



Miss Mandalay are well-known for stocking stylish, flirty and feminine designs all the way up to a GG cup and  are establishing quite a following of fashion conscious lingerie lovers. They are giving the winner:

 1 lingerie set of their choice!


Lepel is a fashionable brand that prides itself on its comfortable and stylish lingerie, swimwear and nightwear. From eye-catching prints to everyday essentials with a twist, they have some lovely, trendy pieces. The winner will receive one of their most popular styles, the:

Lepel 'Fiore' in the colour of their choice!



Simply Beach are one of my new favourite lingerie and swimwear shopping hotspots! Thanks to their recent site makeover, they stock an amazing array of well-known brands and DD+ styles to suit your every need. They are generously offering:

£50 to spend on anything from their swimwear section
and
1 Wonderbra of the winner's choice!



Large Cup Lingerie is a fantastic lingerie retailer, stocking a variety of curve-flattering lingerie and swimwear pieces (often with great discounts), that are ideal for the fuller bust. They are kindly offering a fabulous:


£50 gift card to use online!


Leia Lingerie is another of my long-standing favourite lingerie retailers. Leia stocks fabulous new season collections from top brands and the outlet section is a favourite of mine too! The lucky winner will receive a:

£50 voucher to spend online! 


If You Please is a chic online lingerie boutique that specialises in unique, stylish and quality designer underwear that is beautifully wrapped for the receiver. They will be offering the lucky winner a stunning:

'What Katie Did Cabaret Torsolette' and a pair of retro seamed stockings! 



notnaked is a new site that stocks fabulous lingerie, swimwear, nightwear and more, from a growing list of popular brands. I am a fan of this site because it offers some of my favourite brands and products, but at a snip of the retail price! The lucky winner will receive:

1 lingerie set of their choice from the website!


My Smarty Pants is a lovely underwear website that offers the latest in top quality designer lingerie to suit every occasion, as well as swimwear, corsetry and much more. They are generously giving the winner a:

 £50 gift voucher to use on their site!


Lazeme is a great online shop that offers luxurious sleepwear, exclusive beachwear and designs that are ideal for lazy living. If you've read my blog about the Freya 'Gracie' Chemise, you will be excited to know that they are offering the winner:

 1 'Gracie' chemise in either black, lupin or teal!



Violet's Knickers  provides cutting edge lingerie labels to customers that are looking for something a bit special. The brands are carefully picked to offer luxury, romance and style in abundance. Violet's Knickers are giving the winner a pair of:

Ell & Cee high waisted 'Panther' knickers!




Lingerie Please is a great resource for lingerie lovers who want to find hand-picked branded lingerie names in a range of sizes and at great prices. Lingerie Please is giving each winner:

 1 pair of Jonathan Aston suspenders (from a choice of colours) 


So, the question that you have all been waiting for...


HOW DO I ENTER?

As I have mentioned before, being refitted into a bra that was actually the right size for me and supported me was a big turning point. This competition hinges on the importance of lingerie in making you feel comfortable, sexy and supported...

All you have to do is write a short piece under the title: 

"The bra that changed my life" 

You can be as creative as you want with the post and, of course, feel free to use pictures if you like. It doesn't have to be a piece of prose either - it could be a poem for example.. 

I am, above all, looking for someone who writes engaging content and conveys their thoughts with passion. 

*NOTE: There will be several winners!*


Terms and conditions

* Competition is open to the UK and internationally.
*Please email me your entries at undercoverlingerista@gmail.com
*Please state: your name, what country you are from, and ideally what your size is (so that I can check that the sponsor brands cater to you)
*Entrants must be willing for content to be published online on my blog or related sites.
*The deadline for this competition is: 30th April 2012.
*When you have entered, please 'like' me on Facebook, by clicking here.


If you have any queries, don't hesitate to get in touch - I check my Facebook and Twitter regularly!


GOOD LUCK!

Love,
Kitty xo
