If you’ve ever seen the pictures of the Hollywood glitterati posing on the red carpet and wished that you too could own that beautiful gown but have felt somewhat thwarted by there only being one in existance and it costing more than you earn in a month, do not be disheartened! Some of the best-dressed celebrities to grace the red carpets this month have been spotted in outfits not too dissimilar to some of our designs, and because our steel-boned corsets cinch waists by around four inches as well as flattening the stomach and giving the bust a cheeky hoist, there’s no need to worry about any extra Christmas pounds that well-intentioned-but-underused gym membership may have failed to shift!
Emilia Fox looked resplendent in her trained black gown at the Baftas. If it’s the long sleeves that have caught your eye, try our chiffon Medieval gown with its delicate beaded bodice, available in black or even in white (similar to the dress worn by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the Elle Style Awards), or how about the trained strapless gown with crystal buttoning, over a chiffon blouse or a mesh shrug?
Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto looked glamorous in her floor-length mermaid-esque pink fishtail dress. Recreate her look with our fitted fishtail gown, available in green or pink and currently reduced to £165 from £345.
For the ultimate in glamour our corset dress is sure to get you noticed! Available in a wide variety of coloured satins, it is laced all the way down the back and at the front of the skirt, cinching and boosting in all the right places.
And finally, Kate Winslet looked sensational at the BAFTAs with her tight-fitting floor-length fishtail outfit, entirely in black. Her look is easily achieved with our halter-neck corset teamed with either a long black fishtail skirt or a fit and flare skirt with net trim.
So there you have it, four red-carpet outfits, and four creative ways to steal their style!
Jane Goldman (aka Mrs. Jonathon Ross) wearing our 70-m28trg3 corset in polka dot satin. You can see this corset works very well for larger cup sizes. We’re sure you’ll agree, Jane looks great.
Valentine’s day is only a couple of weeks away now, so girls it’s time to drop those hints! Our boutique is brimming with lingerie so delicious it’s practically edible, and as we send all our items gift-wrapped, we hope we can make buying a Valentine’s present for that special someone just that little bit easier for you!
We have many items in stock ranging all the way from frilly knickers to ornate corsetry depending on your mood, style and budget. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Our underbust corsets are a sure-fire winner as they are suitable for any shape and bust size, and are available in traditional Valentine’s colours as well as, well, any colour under the sun, really! For something a little more playful, how about our red and white polkadot corset? We have all sizes of this corset in stock at the moment, available for delivery before February 14th. If that’s all a bit much and you’d prefer something fun and sexy that won’t break the bank, how about a bustier? Reduced to only £35 at the moment, and matched with a pair of frilly knickers comes to under £50 for a complete outfit.
We do understand that red can get a little clichéd around Valentine’s though, so we’ve put together a few more slightly less traditional, but still very sexy ideas for the sophisticated lady in your life…
Bring some Hollywood glamour into the bedroom with the exquisite full length satin gown with devoire panels and matching robe which is beautiful in every way, or go for something a little more cheeky but made of pure silk, like our Audrey Hepburn-inspired maid’s outfit. Or how about this stunning 1940s purple floor-length silk satin night dress?
For more ideas, have a look at our Valentine’s page, and don’t forget that the last posting day for Valentine’s delivery in the UK is February 13th, as we send all our items via Special Delivery. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to check we have an item in stock!

Gok Wan knows a good corset when he sees it, so we were excited when we were asked to supply corsets for his Channel 4 TV show, How to Look Good Naked, which aired tonight. Didn’t the girls look lovely in our corsets. Hopefully better images to come soon.
