We are very pleased to introduce the new collection from Cadolle available exclusively in the UK from our London boutique ‘Lulu and Lush‘, and online through our website. Their founder Herminie, according to Cadolle, invented the first bra in 1889, and since then they have been producing beautiful and innovative lingerie designs for the female form.
||We absolutely love the unusual high-waisted Can Can knickers, which are made from duchess satin and delicate French lace, but also structured with boning in order to cinch the waist whilst achieving the balance between cheeky and elegant perfectly. Trimmed with tiny black satin bows, the knickers are pictured here with Kiss Me Deadly’s Sirena bra.|
|Bringing sexy back to shapewear, their gorgeous Nadia powermesh girdle skirt is carefully tailored to give a fabulous shape under tight skirts and dresses, with panels to cinch and smooth in all the right places. It can even be worn alone with stockings as part of a cabaret-style outfit.||
|Their long, semi-sheer silky Tanya skirt with built-in powermesh girdle and detachable suspenders can be worn either to give a beautifully cinched waist under a long skirt, or on its own for a more daring Burlesque twist. The design of the skirt enables it to be worn under skirts with even very high splits and perhaps even teamed with a corset, for the ultimate in Jessica Rabbit chic.|
All the items are available in small, medium and large, which fit 8-10, 10-12 and 12-14 respectively, and are in stock for immediate delivery or collection from our shop in Old Spitalfields Market.
This week we are delighted to add to our Ayten Gasson range a few carefully selected items from her unique Spring/Summer collection. Our favourites from the Annabel set are the silk georgette cropped kimono, camisole, knickers and tap pants with cotton trims, pictured here in cream with black and also available in green with cream trim. Most of all, we adore the all-in-one flattering bias-cut teddy, shown here in green with cream trim and also available in the other colourway.
The gorgeous teddy is also available in delicate oyster silk satin, trimmed with eqxuisite hand-crafted bridal lace, as part of the Grace collection. Pictured to the right of the teddy, is the Emily blush pink bloomer pants and matching babydoll, finished with a cream ribbon trim, perfect as light and comfortable loungewear.
We were very excited to be invited to take part in the catwalk show for the Miss Top Model 2009 grand final, showcasing Britain’s most talented new young models, along with exclusive corsets from FairyGothMother and our current Lulu and Lush collection, teamed with Maria Morris’ ‘Take Me Home’ lingerie, which will soon be available exclusively from our Spitalfields Boutique.

We had a fantastic time working with the Miss Top Model team and would like to thank Geoff, Event Co-ordinator Amy Symons and all at Miss Top Model for having us, and for all their hard work in putting together such an amazing and inspring event, of which we were delighted to be a part.
Famed for our fully customisable corsets, we now offer knickers to match any corset, with crystals, pearls, and anything from dainty trims to outlandlish embellishments available by request. Either take inspiration from the photos above, or let your imagination run wild! Please get in touch with one of our resident designers, Donna if you’d like us to make your dream outfit a reality!

New to the website this week and just in time for the Easter bank holiday weekend, we have a few items from the Spring/Summer ’09 collection. Carefully made from the most delicate silk chiffon, the Tea Rose, Vanilla and Orchid are the perfect lingerie pieces to wear whilst spending the Easter long weekend being pampered whilst reclining on a chaise longue, bathed in the gorgeous spring sunshine… Although sadly, but unsurprisingly, the weather forcast suggests otherwise! Well, we can dream, can’t we?
It’s not all bad news though – we at FairyGothMother would like to wish you all a happy Easter and a lovely holiday, and so are offering free worldwide shipping on all orders placed from the 9th to the 13th of April, inclusive!
The Tea Rose set comes in three parts so you can mix and match your favourite pieces. The pretty pale green silk chiffon is complemented by baby pink roses and contrast pink straps on the bra, with covered buttons and cute frill trims. All the items are available from size small (8-10) to large (12-14), and includes the dainty soft bra with frill trim, which can be worn with either the matching briefs or their unique pantaloons.
Also part of their new collection is the virginal Vanilla babydoll, again in silk chiffon with matching frills and gathered gently at the bottom for a cute puffball look, and their Orchid tie-side knickers, in lace and silk.
Spring is here, and it’s time to cast off those big warm dressing gowns and bury those terrifyingly grannytastic thermal underpants at the bottom of your underwear drawer, where they belong. It’s time to treat yourself to some new delicate silk lingerie to welcome the return of warm evenings. And that’s why until midnight on April 4th we are offering 15% off our normal price for all underwear, loungewear and sleepwear items, from shapewear and girdles to hold you in under your new summer dresses and cheeky burlesque frilly knickers to satin nighties and hand-painted silk kimonos.
If you would like to visit our boutique and try any items on, you can still take advantage of the discount – if shopping in person just mention the discount to one of our friendly members of staff and quote, ‘SPRINGKNIX‘.
Don’t forget we still have our weekly special, which this week is the deep lipstick red silk chemise with matching briefs, by Playful Promises. This gorgeous nightie is trimmed in black eyelash lace and has adjustable straps. We also have our mid-season sale, featuring a large selection of corsets, lingerie and eveningwear. All these items are limited edition, so get them while you can!
Please note: This special 15% discount does not apply to shipping cost, and the offer may not be used in conjunction with other discounts/sale prices. Discount applies to all items in our lingerie section, excluding corsets.
Here’s a short film of the glamorous burlesque performer and FairyGothMother model Chrys Columbine, who we are proud to sponsor, as posted on the Guardian website.
|Dressed in our fabulous halterneck black sailor girl dress with red anchor detailing, Chrys gives Guardian journalist Paul MacInnes a quick lesson in the art of tease, as he interviews her about Burlesque entertainment.|
|Also included in the video is part of her captivating Birth of Venus routine, where she emerges from a giant satin shell dressed in a bespoke outfit created especially for this show by our talented in-house designer and tailor, and performs an elegant striptease.|
If the clip of her show has left you wanting more, you can keep up with Chrys’ upcoming performances by visiting her MySpace page.
The recent beautiful weather has got us all a little flower-crazy here at FairyGothMother, and we’ve been filling our shop with daisies and roses. We thought we’d share some springtime joy with you, our lovely customers, and so for one week only we’re offering our ever-popular Daisy corset, and our new favourite, the Rose corset, at only £99 instead of the usual £195!
Steel-boned as with all our corsets, both the Daisy and the Rose fasten at the front with a steel busk, and are fully adjustable at the back either with standard lacing or matching ribbon – black or red for the Daisy, and black or silver for the Rose. The Daisy, as the name suggests, is lovingly made from black with red daisy silk brocade, and the Rose from black satin with silk rose-print panels.
Both corsets are available from 20″ to 32″ for the Daisy, and 34″ for the Rose. The classic sweetheart neckline is flattering on all shapes, and the corsets gently curve over the bust and hips to give a gorgeous hourglass figure, cinching the waist by 4″, uplifting the cleavage and flattening the tummy. Both corsets can be worn as flirty burlesque outfits when teamed with our matching black or rose print silk bloomers and daisy with crystal trim (pictured here in plain black) or rose print and black lace bustles, or part of an eveningwear ensemble with a pencil or floor-length skirt.
This offer is valid for one week from today and all these items are limited edition – so get in quick before they sell out
With our current sale offering 15% off all lingerie, you’re probably feeling a little overindulged in pretty pants for this month, so why not pre-order yourself one of our gorgeous items from 1940’s-inspired Kiss Me Deadly’s new range?
If you liked their classic Alouette range (currently available in emerald), you’ll be delighted to discover that it’s now available in limited edition black with black rose lace overlay, featuring pale pink chiffon bows for that little hint of springtime. The set comprises of their ever-popular plunge bra, matching cincher, suspender belt, and brief or thong, shown here with Ophelia stockings.
If glamorous shapewear is what you’re after to accentuate your hourglass figure but the best-selling Vargas Dress is a bit much for the warm weather, how about the new Vargas Girdle? Adorned with a beautiful large satin bow, this longline girdle is cut high in the rear, has hook and eye fastening, and features a double layer stomach control panel and waist reinforcement tape to give a perfectly cinched waist. And of course, it has six metal garter tabs for your all-important stockings. It is pictured above with the matching Van Doren bra and brief, available separately.
And remember, if you get your order in before midnight on April 4th, and quote ‘SPRINGKNIX’ in the ‘comments’ section of our online order form, you can be the first to own one (or both!) of these beautiful sets, as well as being able to take advantage of our 15% lingerie discount.
