The Gentleman’s guide to lingerie buying

From balcony to boudoir, bow tie to brief there’s many different styles of lingerie that would leave many men going crazy.. The Gentleman’s guide to bras and briefs will give you a little more insight into the different styles and their functions, making life a whole lot easier for you to order for your loved ones.

First and foremost lets tackle the most confusing garment – the bra. There are so many sizes, shapes and functions to bras, from comfort to cleavage. At Fleur of England we have four main styles as shown below:

Bras

Lace plunges are perfect for outfits that are cut a little low, but also offer the perfect support. The lace offers a beautiful touch as shown in this Heather bra.

The Balcony bra is essential for everyday wear. Whether it’s our classic Signature collection, as shown, or something a little more edgier, this style it always go down a treat.

For the touch of pure sexiness the Boudouir bra is the one. This triangle shaped bra is teamed with the silk covered under band and either beautiful silk covered buttons or a dimonate clap, like the Jasmine bra show, to close at the back. Perfect little something for the bedroom.

Padded Plunge – the girls best friend. To give yourself that added uplift and cleavage for the daring number in your wardrobe. The moulded cup with this Blush bra offers a smooth appearance underneath any outfit as well as the added push to enhance any outfit.

 

Our perfect companion to bras are a little simpler, with three styles that would compliment any of our bras.

briefs

The Thong is for the girl with a little more sass. It sits nicely with a Suspender belt if buying the ultimate gift. With zero visibilty this Heiress thong is perfect under tight fitting clothes.

Add fun to any lingerie drawer with the Bow Tie Brief, easily worn with the Boudoir bra, even eaiser to take off..

Finally, the brief best staple to any set. Goes perfectly with any of the Fleur of England bras, as shown in out best selling Belle De Nuit collection. While still looking ultra sexy it gives the wearer a little more coverage, great for every day comfort.

Now that you know you know the basics to lingerie, you are all set to pick the perfect gift for that special lady. There is just a copy of things we would like to add..

The best tip we can suggest for any man looking to buy their loved one some lingerie, is DO YOUR RESEARCH. The world of lingire sizing can be a scary place for men, as even women still get confused by it! Do not try to guess her size, you will inediably fail miserbaly! Luckily, apart from our bras, our lingerie is made in sizes small, medium and large. This can make it a little easier to pick the perfect size. Wait until she goes out and then raid her underwear drawer. Try to find things with the label in and write down the numbers there.

Whilst you are rummaging around amongst her undies, make a note of the colours and styles she likes. Is there a particular colour she is particularly fond of? Does she like patterns or plain styles? Does she go for comfort or sex appeal? These are important things to note if you are going to buy something that will really impress her.

Dont worry men, you can do it! Happy shopping!

Celebrate a Luxury Thanksgiving with Fleur of England!

 

Towards the end of the year, everybody’s calendars become full of exciting social events.

Halloween has just passed and another large holiday for North America is on its way. Thanksgiving Day is a holiday celebrated mostly in America and Canada that marks a day of unity and thankfulness.

The Fleur of England team loves the idea of celebrating the beauty of fall and expressing our thanks for all of those who support Fleur of England. Thanksgiving Day also ushers in the beginning of the exciting Christmas shopping season.

It is also followed by the biggest (and craziest!) shopping day of the year, Black Friday. With all these exciting things happening, Fleur of England has created a guide for celebrating Thanksgiving the Fleur way!

Thankfulness starts at home and Thanksgiving should serve as a reminder to be more thankful and gracious to our own bodies. Women are constantly tearing down their appearance instead of celebrating them.

Edinburgh

Autumn is a beautiful season, mother nature shows us how stunning she is with the gorgeous hues of the changing leaves. As the nights draw in beautiful nightwear becomes essential. Fleur even designed her own bespoke tartan pattern for our Edinburgh collection that fits this season perfectly! The 100% silk fabric makes lounging even more luxurious.

The cooler temperatures also make it a season for snuggling up inside and drinking hot cocoa. Fleur of England loves this autumnal activity and designed a luxury lingerie collection to go with it, Hot Chocolate perfectly captures this silky smooth and delicious drink.

HOT CHO

After the dishes have been cleared away from the Thanksgiving dinner, many start prepping their plans for shopping on Black Friday.  The holiday deals have started coming earlier and earlier and now many shops open their doors on Thanksgiving eve to accommodate the stampede of shoppers. While many will be pondering over their Christmas gift list, Fleur of England have got you cover! We’ve already created our Sugar and Spice Knicker Gift Sets that can be ordered at any hour and you won’t be subjected to crazy queues or chilly November weather – perfection!

Christmas Knicker

However you celebrate your luxury Thanksgiving Day, we hope you enjoy this fall holiday and treat yourself to a day of rest – and a little shopping.

The team at Fleur of England would like to thank everyone who supports our lingerie brand and our belief in living exquisitely.

Happy Thanksgiving!
