Blue Beautiful

1. La Lilouche Anouk Playsuit 2. MC Lounge Silk Top 3. Oh La La Cheri Paris Josephine Babydoll Set 4. Sonata Elektra Lace Bodysuit 5. Toad Lillie Vamp Quarter Cup Bra and High-Waisted Knickers

I’ve always loved blue lingerie, especially when it comes in electric color variations or jewel tones. It always looks elegant but also has a sense of fun about it, and it goes with almost everything.

It’s no surprise to me that blue is in for the season (especially teal), so today I’ve got some great ways to incorporate this trend into your lingerie (or regular) life.

First up is this gorgeous silk shirt by MC Lounge. It would look fantastic with jeans and gold jewelry for going out, but would also make a fantastic piece of lounge wear to hang around the house in. I love the off the shoulder detail as it adds a very wearable hint of sexiness to the whole thing.

The Elektra Lace bodysuit by Sonata Lingerie is a once in a lifetime piece that I can’t get enough of. It incorporates two trends (jewel tone blue and neon), and is made of a delicate lace that shows off all of your curves. The hot pink buttons take it from classic to edgy and beautiful.

Sometimes you just want that special piece for a special someone (or a special occasion), and when you do Toad Lillie is the designer you need. Her barely-there teal vamp quarter cup bra lets you be a tease and stay covered all at the same time. If you want a little extra coverage, you can add a pair of her amazing hand beaded pasties for some sparkle.

This La Lilouche Anouk Starlight Blue Silk Chiffon Playsuit is incredibly comfortable for lounging around the house in.  The Swarovski crystals and silk satin also make it elegant enough to wear as outerwear with a layer underneath it. It would look great with some high-waist black pants or a black skirt. 

What’s your favorite way to wear your blue lingerie? How are you planning to incorporate the color blue into your lingerie life this season?

Nicole Gill: A Beautiful Sacrifice

Today we’re incredibly excited to showcase Nicole Gill’s newest collection, “A Beautiful Sacrifice”. Made from the highest quality silk and lace available, Nicole’s new black and blood red pieces are guaranteed to catch your eye.

The collection features everything from unique cut bras to made to order steel boned corsets modeled after styles from the 1880’s. Each piece of the collection can be beautifully mixed and matched, or pieces can be purchased together to make more traditional sets.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if we had to it might be the Shannon Teddy. This sexy and versatile piece is created from black lace with a high neckline and tied together at the back with a large silk bow which drapes down the open back of the piece. The garment is gathered at the waist to emphasise the wearer's waistline and to create a cute playsuit style that is so hot right now!

If you’ve never bought a corset before, Nicole’s made to order corsets are absolutely stunning. They feature serious steel boning to amp up your figure, but are comfortable enough to be worn at home or as formalwear.

This collection has amazing pieces, so everyone can find something to fall in love with. We’re taking orders now, so make sure you get yours in soon.

Lytess - Anti-Cellulite, Slimming + Fat Reducing Shapewear

Today we’re proud to introduce Lytess, a smarter brand of shapewear. Lytess takes shapewear into the realm of science with their embedded microencapsulated ingredients that are released as you wear their pieces. It’s intelligent shapewear for the modern woman, complete with that je ne sais quoi of French luxury.

We’re stocking four lines of Lytess shapewear: their micro-massage line, their corrective shapewear, their slimming line, and their hydration active wear. On top of looking leaner, each line provides different long-term benefits for your body. Each piece of Lytess shapewear slims without being constrictive. They contain millions of microcapsules that release on contact with your firming ingredients such as Copaiba, Elemi resin, Rodhysterol, Caffeine to mobilize fats and Shea Butter and Sweet Almond to moisturize the skin, thanks to a revolutionary French Technology of Microencapsulated Cosmetics. As the garment is worn, the ingredients are gradually and evenly released onto the skin. No wonder Lytess products are flying off the shelves in Europe since its launch.

The Lytess micro-massage line moistens and softens your skin while providing deep tissue nutrition and helping get rid of fat in your system. The specially woven fabric responds to your natural body movements and helps massage and tone your skin. When worn on a regular basis, this line of shapewear will help treat cellulite and improve your skin.

Lytess corrective shapewear uses caffeine and shea butter to help you slim down. The caffeine helps mobilize fats, and the shea butter moistens your skin and helps it absorb the caffeine. When worn six days a week, test models lost as much as four inches off their waist size!

The Lytess slimming line contains the same ingredients, but focuses on your thighs and your hips. These pieces are designed to be comfortable enough to wear while exercising, so your body can absorb the full benefits of the smart fabric.

The Lytess hydration active wear line helps strengthen and moisturize dry and fragile skin. It also wicks moisture away from the body and provides back support while you work out. If you’re someone who struggles with itchy dry skin, this line is for you. Sweet almond and other compounds are woven into the fabric to treat your skin while you sweat.

The Lytess line debuts this week here at Bella Bella Boutique, so make sure you pick up a piece and experience these amazing benefits for yourself.
