Stress-free online shopping: Perfect Christmas gifts for lingerie lovers!

(Pic credit: Nordstrom)

   It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Xmas lights are twinkling, you're permanently humming Christmas jingles and you can almost smell the mulled wine... the festive season is most definitely upon us! In the run up to Christmas day, shopping for the perfect gifts for family, friends and loved ones can be as exciting as it is stressful, particularly when the highstreet is buzzing with frantic shoppers! 

   With the days getting darker and the frost setting in, my favourite way to avoid present shopping mania is to shop online! What could be better than browsing all of your favourite stores and brands in the warmth and comfort of your own home?

   One of the reasons why I buy online is because I can shop around for the best products, find great offers and I can have a parcel on its way to me with a click of a button... no queuing necessary! I love to shop for lingerie online and given that so many companies offer free delivery and returns, it has become one of my preferred ways to shop! (Note: always remember to check a company's Xmas shipping dates and the returns policy!)

   This Christmas, there is an amazing range of gorgeous lingerie products on the market to tickle your fancy. Whoever you are treating this season and whatever your budget, you are sure to find some lingerie gems online!

   Here is my online lingerie wishlist for this season - hopefully you're reading, Santa...!


   Fauve lingerie is synonymous with luxury and sophistication and this stunning longline bra is no exception. Inspired by oriental lacquerwork, 'Bronte' exudes decadence and exoticism with its exquisite oriental blossom pattern, satin-feel fabric and ornate black embroidery. At £36, this bra is just a snip of its RRP but it would undoubtedly make its wearer feel a million dollars!

   The popular pin-up inspired 'Charlotte' bra from Parfait by Affinitas is back in purple for A/W14!

  2. The Fauvre Bronte green satin black lace bra, panty and suspender belt are very pretty as is the blue and purple hued pansy print set from Freya. I love the purple colour and styling of the full cut retro style briefs of the Parfait by Affinitas Charlotte set. That Cleo by Panache Neve set looks like it could be Pantone's new colour of the year, Marsala. I love babydolls and the Curvy Kate Ritzy babydoll is a cute one. I've always loved empire waists and I love the look of the fabric. The ruffles and bows of the Playful Promises frilly knickers are adorable. I only wish they were available in full cut high-waisted versions. All of this lingerie looks gorgeous. I love it. and

    1. I'm so glad that you enjoyed my selection - I loved compiling this list!

      Hope you got everything that you wished for!
