Lingerie has become a large part of my life as I not only have a big passion for it, I also want to pursue a career in designing it. I believe that confidence is definitely boosted by a beautiful underwear set and style starts from what’s closest to the skin. This post is going to focus on how to find the perfect underwear for you and why I think investing in underwear is important.
It may come as a surprise that the majority of women in the UK are wearing the wrong bra size, we need to remember that our bodies are constantly growing and changing and your bra size from three years ago probably isn’t your bra size now. Many women find it uncomfortable to go get measured in a shop so here’s a lifesaving explanation on how to find out your bra size from the comfort of your own house.
- Take a measuring tape and wrap it around your ribs, just under your boobs. Make a note of this measurement in inches and add 5. This is the ‘number part’ of your bra size, so if this measurement was 29 inches, for instance, you’d add 5 to get 34. If you’re between sizes (say you got 31 inches for example) always size up, you can use the adjustable hooks on the back of the bra to tailor it to fit you.
- To work out your cup size you need to measure around your boobs; run the measuring tape around the fullest part of your breasts and make a note of this measurement. Work out the difference between the number you got before and this measurement, if the difference is 1 inches you’re an A cup, if it’s 2 inches you’re a B and so on.
There, wasn’t that easy?
So, why do I think lingerie is so important? Lingerie empowers us. It makes us feel sexy, beautiful and powerful (and also a bit naughty as no one else knows the true extent of its beauty but us!). The delicacy and intricacy of lingerie excites me and I think nothing compares to going lingerie shopping. You won’t ever see me leaving a lingerie shop without a big smile on my face!
Try it for a week – wear gorgeous matching underwear sets everyday for an entire week and I promise you you’ll feel more confident and happy. You get an instant boost by putting them on, looking in the mirror and thinking ‘damn, I look good’ and that feeling continues throughout the day.
Lingerie isn’t just there to keep you modest, nor is it just for the enjoyment of your partner, lingerie is there for you. Making yourself feel happy and confident should be your main priority and I think investing in good underwear is the best way to do that.

This post was originally going to be called ‘what to wear to a festival’ but after attending Penn Fest and practically drowning in mud I had to admit my mistakes and decided to warn you all not to follow in my footsteps!
1. Don’t wear white shoes!
Okay, yes this should have been an obvious one, but as you all saw in my shoe collection video over on YouTube (here) I’m not really a trainer sort of person so white converse was all I had to work with. I say white, now they’re so caked in mud I doubt they’ll ever be able to be called that again…
2. Wear wellies!
If there’s even the slightest bit of rain you’re practically guaranteed to be drowning in mud. By the end of the night we were basically swimming around the field as we trekked through mud that was at least 3 inches deep. Wearing wellies would have made my life a lot easier I assure you. There are actually some very fashionable ones that you can get (examples here and here).
3. Don’t wear shorts!
If you can, try and stay clear of shorts. I don’t even want to think about what my legs looked like at the end of the night, I don’t think I’d ever seen legs so covered in mud! That definitely could have been avoided by wearing trousers and keeping my legs protected.
I did do some things right! I definitely recommend wearing a poncho, I wore a cheap one (the type you can get from practically any theme park) but you can get more stylish ones; Boohoo even offer them (here)! There were also some girls wearing transparent macs (like this), I thought these looked gorgeous, the more stylish alternative to a poncho. The poncho kept me dry and also protected me if I fell over in the mud (which thankfully I managed not to do).
I’d also recommend bringing your things in a backpack as it’s much easier to carry round than a handbag, you don’t want to be in a large crowd whilst lugging around a handbag.

It’s important to take a few minutes out of every day to spend time by yourself and focus on your own mind and body. Life can get very fast paced and stressful and it is always necessary to set aside some time to slow things down and immerse yourself in relaxation. To do this I go out on a walk each night; I leave my phone at home and head off in the evening sun to enjoy the natural beauty of the world.
I use this time as a sort of meditation, I focus on feeling each part of my body individually, from my head all the way down to my toes. I have a conversation with myself, assess how I felt throughout the day and how I can work on this, dream about the future and think about things that make me happy. I try and block out things that are wearing me down or stressing me out, even if it’s just for the duration of the walk.
Watching the setting sun, admiring the lake and trees round my local park and looking at all the pretty flowers in my neighbours’ gardens reminds me of the beauty in the world. This is important in a world where disaster and ugliness prevails; our world is a truly gorgeous place and most of the time we get so caught up that we forget to notice it.
Find a pretty place, preferably somewhere that’s peaceful, quiet and full of natural beauty, near you and spend a few minutes each day strolling around there.
