Visual: A Little Bridal Lingerie Inspiration

Beegee Margenyte by Hunter & Gatti for Vogue Spain Brides

Just a little visual bridal lingerie inspiration for a Monday holiday afternoon before the craziness of CURVE NY starts tomorrow! I loved how lingerie takes the focus in some of these photos and there's one with a bodysuit as an untraditional wedding... dress? Makes you think, right?

More photos after the jump. Enjoy!

Hump Day Pick: Josefine Set by Lascivious

I have no idea who Josefine is, but if she inspired this incredibly cheeky set by Lascivious, then I'm sure she'd be a pretty fun friend to hang out with. I especially love the little keyhole details in the middle of the bra and the sides of the shorts—as if this set wasn't exposed enough as it is. But that's the fun in it, right? And it makes the perfect bridal shower gift for the dedicated lingerie lover.

Josefine Bra, $157. Josefine Shorts, $137. Available at Faire Frou Frou.

Intimate Interview: Jenna Leigh of Jenna Leigh Lingerie & A Giveaway!

Summer officially starts tomorrow! How many weddings are you going to this season? Luckily I don't have as many to go to as some other people I know (haha, sorry friends!) but there are some super-gorgeous bridal lingerie options from Jenna Leigh Lingerie if you're in a squeeze. 

Jenna is getting married herself this fall, so to help her celebrate, we did a lil' interview and she's giving away the super-fun Flamingo button-front romper to a lucky Pretty Little Underthings reader! It's feels a bit odd to have another giveaway so soon, but I love Jenna Leigh's line (a few of her bras are in my regular rotation, shhh) and I'm really pumped for this giveaway!

Giveaway details are below after the interview, so read on about Jenna and what inspires her, and find out how to enter.
Flamingo Button-Front Romper. P.S. you could win this!!

Pretty Little Underthings: What inspired you to start an intimates line instead of say, ready-to-wear?
Jenna Leigh: I started this line because I felt there was a missing void in the marketplace for fashionable lingerie. There are many, many ready to wear brands constantly coming out each season. Lingerie is still considered a rare specialty item in the states.

PLU: Who is the Jenna Leigh woman? What do you think are some of her personality traits that would prompt her to choose Jenna Leigh instead of another line?
JL: The Jenna Leigh woman loves to look sexy but never over the top. She likes subtle sexiness & elegance. She can be casual but wants that extra little something to turn up the heat. She’s beautiful, confident, and loves fashion!

PLU: What inspirations have you drawn for your collections from living in London, New York, and Miami?
JL: Living in London inspired me in every sense to create this lingerie line. Europeans are excited by undergarments and lingerie as a second wardrobe. Miami and New York—and all of my travels for that matter—have inspired me by their fashion cultures. New York is the fashion center of the world, alongside Paris. Living in this fabulous city, I have been able to get a sense of every fashion trend, brand, color, and style. It helps me every day, just to see the excitement on the streets in terms of fashion. I learn new things from simply sitting at a café and people watching!

PLU: I feel like each season gets better and better—the Kyoto set was one of my favorites. It looked like what Céline's intimates line would look like! How do RTW designers inspire you?
JL: RTW designers are a huge inspiration for me. I constantly follow their trends from season to season. My famous “Malawi” bra was inspired by cut-out/key hole looks on the runway and magazines. When army green was huge, I created army green lingerie. I just continue to follow amazing fashion tips & trends from top RTW designers, and then I use my own fashion sense of lingerie to merge them together.

PLU: The Jenna Leigh pieces I have are so beautiful and wouldn’t normally be seen as everyday wear, but for me, getting to wear something gorgeous every day makes me feel happier. Do you think there should be a distinction between “everyday lingerie” and “special occasion”? 
JL: I think there is always a need to hold a special occasion piece to the side, which will make you feel fantastic when you put it on, for either your wedding night, a special date, your birthday, anything! That being said, everyday is an occasion to feel happier like you mentioned. I truly believe that when you wear beautiful clothes, lingerie, shoes, the whole nine yards—you are in a better mood and feel more “confident”. Every woman out there should try wearing a beautiful bra on a random day to work and see how pretty they feel! 

(r) Namos Set; (l) Laos Set

PLU: Speaking of special occasions, you’re getting married soon! Are there any specific pieces from your own collection you would recommend to other brides-to-be? 
JL: Yes! Each season I launch a new bridal set. “Elle” was my first bridal set and is still a best seller for my brand. Spring/Summer 2011, we launched “Laos” which has beautiful sewn detail, padding, lace, and silk-really perfect for any bride. I also love the idea of brides daring to be different with a hint of color. Wedding gowns are so thick, nothing will show through!

PLU: Is there anything new and exciting we should look out for coming to Jenna Leigh Lingerie?
JL: Yes there is! Jenna Leigh is expanding our collection to double in size. For Spring 2012, we will have many more groups available, multiple color-ways, and we are going up to double D cups! No reason why more voluptuous women can’t wear sexy, beautiful lingerie too!

Fashion Friday: A Gorgeous Brazilian Bridal Editorial

I haven't done one of these in a couple of months, but I saw this one last night and instantly knew I had to post it for Fashion Friday. It's such a gorgeous bridal editorial from Vogue Brazil Brides—it has so many different lush textures and the use of light is just stunning. Which one is your favorite?

Hump Day PIck: A Classic Silk Robe by Brulee... And a Deal!

I think robes can be tricky. Skimp on the quality of the fabric and it can look cheap. Make it too long and walking becomes shuffling. Make it too short and your fanny gets cold. So it's a good thing that BRULEE has found the perfect formula for a great, classic robe. I'm not a huge fan of giant kimono sleeves on a robe if the rest of the body is somewhat fitted, so I really love the pajama-esque sleeves on this one.

Do you love it too? Yes? YES? Well, looks like it's someone's lucky day (or week)! BRULEE is offering a whopping 50% off said robe, in all colors, so pick one: cream, black, or black with cream piping... or get 'em all. One for you, one for a friend, one for a relative... or three for you. Whatever.

So here's the scoop: BRULEE's Vamp Collection silk robe will be available on for 50% off starting on Friday May 20th through Friday, May 27th. Just use the code "bruleerobe" when you check out!

P.S. The white one would make an excellent bridal shower gift. Stock up. Just sayin'. 'Tis the season.

Vamp Collection silk robe, on sale for $135 with promotion code "bruleerobe" (reg $270). Available at

Tempting Tuesdays: Stella McCartney Clara Whispering Satin Set

Tuesdays will feature a lustworthy lingerie set and a suggested retailer. I think we all need a little something beautiful to at least look at to get us through the week. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Stella McCartney Clara Whispering Satin Bra & Thong Set
This week's Tempting Tuesday is dedicated to my dear friend Deborah! This gorgeous Stella set reminded me of another I posted last month that she liked. Even though the white/ivory colors give this one a bridal-ish feel, she's been talking a lot about weddings lately, so I think it's perfect for her. Love you Deb!
