Stella McCartney’s new-ish “Stella” lingerie is well worth a good look. Breaking free from my addiction to Calvin Klein’s Customised Lift bras (it was getting boring, I had five in different colours!) I decided to funk things up in the underwear department. I went for a python-print bra and three – yes three – pairs of laser-cut briefs. (Because you never have enough matching pants, do you?)  The briefs are a thing of wonder and I adore them. The bra comes up slightly tight around the ribs, but actually stretches out quite quickly, so you only have to endure one excruciating wear! And, if you’re intelligent, you’ll do the bra up on the outer hooks to begin with and gradually move tighter as the bra gets looser. (Common sense, apparently. I lack it.)

There are lots of gorgeous things in the Stella range – it’s quite a bit cheaper, too, than the original Stella McCartney lingerie. You can find most of it online at Net-a-Porter – check out the Supernatural bra, that’s probably my next investment.

My favourite at-home clothing combo of the moment is Python Print lingerie with my grey sweatshirt from HUSH and Paige Verdugo skinny jeans (both linked-to here). There’s something nice about having racy undies on but looking very girl-next-door and casual!

  1. [...] gives good shape and looks cool and sexy through sheerer tops – I posted about it ages ago here. It’s nice to have a bit of print going on in the bottom layers, don’t you think? [...]

    Hi Ruth! What is the sizing like on this range? I usually take a 30E but sometimes the 32 bands work out if it’s not too stretchy. Some of Stella’s main lines are very rigid and work well but I saw that her basics line comes in a huge range of extended sizes.

    Hi Ruth! You’ve inspired me to upgrade my casual clobber! Are the blue Paige jeans as comfy as you find the black ones? Thanks! Xxx

    Have you ever checked out intimissimi’s range? In my opinion, they make the most great lingerie: beautiful, great quality and affordable. I can’t wait to go to London next week to buy the whole lot :) xx

    My favourite underwear would have to be victoria’s secret, comfy, sexy and affordable but I hate that its double the price in the UK?! So much so I refuse to shop there!
