Does your cup floweth over?

Does your cup floweth over?One vital statistic remains unchanged in this current unsteady climate and research results indicate that of the 70% of women wearing the wrong sized bra two years ago, all of them still seem to be getting it drastically wrong.

This ‘blunderwear’ epidemic is on the up and although women know every possible measurement of their other halves, their children, the exact right sized handbag to carry everything for every eventuality, they seem to come unstuck when it comes to matters of the mammaries.

Of the women surveyed, an amazing one in five have never been measured professionally and staggeringly nearly half (47%) have not been fitted for lingerie in the last two to ten years.

Choosing the right Designer lingerie for your big day is right up there at the top of your priority list – making sure it’s the perfect fit, the right colour to match your exquisite wedding gown and most importantly, comfortable so you are not continuously adjusting yourself all day. We all want to get to the end of our perfect day and still be able to throw off our dress to reveal a sexy body encased in the most divine lingerie but how easy is it to transform from beautiful bride to sexy wedding night temptress?

Most brides will choose corset style basque underwear for their big day, to create the perfect silhouette, perhaps a gorgeous Waspie or the Christies Bouquet with delicate boned detail and suspender belt to hold up stockings and garter.

Lingerie History

60's

Lingerie takes its influences from everything around it, animal, vegetable and mineral, always re-creating, constantly re-inventing. Take the simple bra, for example, born out of necessity, but evolving into beautiful, delicate lingerie with inspirations from our glamorous ancesters, our avant-garde fashion designers and from the most unexpected sources from around the world.

Have you ever wondered where the word ‘lingerie’ came from or who or what inspired us to call a sexy nightie a babydoll!  Or just when in history did our love affair with these glamorous undergarments begin?

Take a look at Honeys Lingerie Boutique Blog latest page addition A “Brief ” History and let us guide you through the decades with a few nostalgic memories thrown in, do you remember Madonna’s vogue bra!
