The next Corset & Diamonds party, with an Alice in Wonderland theme, will be taking place downstairs at the Hobby Horse on Saturday the 24th of April. As well as a complimentary drinks reception and entertainment, classically trained pianist and international burlesque pin-up Chrys Columbine will be performing a unique piano-striptease show, debuting Lulu and Lush’s brand new Alice in Wonderland-themed collection!
L-R: Lulu and Lush ‘Alice’ corset (20″-30″, £220) and Lulu and Lush ‘Alice’ tulle skirt (UK 8-18, £150); Lulu and Lush ‘Alice’ corset, knickers and bustle (S-XL, £155).
As part of our Alice collection, we’ve created a pale blue satin corset with a spotted tulle frill, trimmed with tiny matching hearts which catch the light beautifully, and a matching soft tulle ’50s length skirt. For burlesque Alice, team with our hand-draped satin and tulle bustle finished with the same delicate heart trim as the corset. We’ve also designed matching ruffled knickers, spotted tulle heart briefs and a soft-cup bra, which will be up on the website very soon!

The FairyGothMother / Lulu and Lush team will all be attending, and we love to meet our customers and fans – please come and say hello after the show
|Check out the clever underwear in gadget zine Wired‘s ‘High-Tech Underwear for Adventurous Geeks‘ feature, including a bra with removable heated pads (lovely and warm in the winter I’d imagine, as long as you don’t heat them up too much!) and a swimming costume with a solar panel that can re-charge your iPod whilst you sunbathe (er, although I suspect it might be best to unplug the iPod before you go for a swim).
Here’s hoping someone invents an electric self-tightening corset soon, with a release button for when you get home and can’t wait to take it off – how much easier would that make our lives?!
