You know I’m partial to the finer things in life, and this is especially true when the finer things include gorgeous luxury lingerie that makes you feel sassy and sexy as hell. When Scrumpies of Mayfair got in touch with me last year and offered me the opportunity to try a pair or their knickers I couldn’t very well turn them down now could I?
The brand new range of luxury undies from Scrumpies are all named after different types of apple and are a work of art in their own right. Each pair comes with a beautiful gold charm inlaid with Czech crystals which makes them feel just that little bit more special, and arrives in a beautiful hinged box which I really loved opening. It definitely beat buying a selection of novelty cheap pairs from Primark and I really do think my lingerie tastes have been revolutionised…
I chose the Honey Crunch style – we all know that colour really isn’t my bag so I wanted to go for the super luxe looking gold and black pair over its more colourful cousins. I like the mixture of the metallic gold with the black lace – there’s something about them that exudes style and sexiness and I really wanted to showcase this with the photos which I really hope I achieved. I was nervous to shoot these as I don’t have the best relationship with my body image, but the more I look at the photos the more I feel like a sexy and powerful woman which is exactly how good underwear should make you feel.
It is my belief that underwear should be worn primarily with yourself in mind rather than with the enjoyment of someone else as top priority (although that is always a good thing too!). I know when I’m walking around wearing a killer matching set of underwear that I feel absolutely on top of the world and that I can take on anything thrown my way. I feel like a girl boss, like I can achieve anything I put my mind to, and what I enjoy most of all is the knowledge that nobody else knows how banging I look beneath my clothes – it’s all for me.
My Scrumpies definitely made me feel that way, and the seal of approval from Joseph too was just the cherry on top of the cake. I guess all that is left to say is, well, what Scrumpies style would you pick?!
