It's All About The Bralet This Summer!


This summer you’re going to see a lot more lingerie as outerwear walking the streets during the heat.The bralet is quite possibly one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe, especially when the mercury’s rising. Whether you call it a soft cup bra, bralet, bralette or underwire-free bra, this super comfy and supportive shapewear piece can easily go from the bedroom to the beach, the park to the club.

Every designer has a different idea of what constitutes a bralet. The straps may go over the shoulder like the Zinke bralets, around the neck in a halter, a la Harlette’s Diamonds are Forever, or criss cross the back in a racer style. The cups could be multi seamed or simple shaped triangles. Solid colored, cute floral prints or color blocked brights, you can be sure that paired up with some cute shorts or a sweetly flounced skirt, you’ll be able to beat the heat while looking smokin’ hot.

Summer Playlist by Bella Bella Boutique

intimissimi lingerie
We love Summer. Living in Miami where most of the year it feels and looks like Summer, we are spoiled here. Summer has a magical feeling, with that comes the beach, the pool, parties, vacations, and so much more. One thing that goes perfect with all of the above is great music. So we have put together a Summer Playlist on iTunes with songs we have been hitting "repeat" on lately for you to enjoy. Happy Summer to you and have lots of fun!

Love like you'll never be hurt.

Sing like there's nobody listening,

And live like it's heaven on earth."

Say I Do with Rebecca Ansah Bridal Lingerie


We have been in love with Rebecca Ansah lingerie since we discovered this amazing British lingerie designer last year. So when we heard about her new collection being focused on Bridal, we got really excited because we knew she was going to make some really unique pieces for the fashion-forward Brides looking to wear something different and exclusive on their wedding night.

We're delighted in launching this avant-garde collection with innovative styles and exciting details for the modern Bride looking for classic pieces with a modern twist. Loving the sexiness style of the Emma Bodysuit in the front but with a more romantic look in the back and the Patricia Cage Bra for a touch of edgeness. You can wear this bra with your favorite knicker on your honeymoon and lovely ever after! To see all styles and to shop click here.

Lingerie Washing with Le Blanc


Lots of people are scared to buy great lingerie because they don't know how to wash it. I actually held off on buying my first silk robe for just this reason. I finally took the plunge when I realized that my dad had been wearing silk shirts for years and washing them very successfully - this from the man who can barely boil water!

The truth is that it's very easy to wash almost any kind of fabric as long as you have the right tools and know what you're doing. Bella Bella Boutique is carrying Le Blanc washing products for just this reason! You shouldn't have to be scared of washing anything that you own, including expensive silks.
Le Blanc Silk & Lingerie Wash comes in 64 oz bottles, which is great when you need to keep a high quality lingerie wash on hand for regular use. It has a wonderful lavender scent and is perfect for hand washing all of your delicate lingerie. Even better, it removes tough stains like make-up, food and even blood.

Le Blanc Fragrance Infusion Fabric Softener has the same lovely lavender scent but can be used in your washer to reduce static cling and to make your ironing easier. It's also great to use on your sheets and towels in place of a linen spray.

I love the idea of these Le Blanc DryerSachets and will be picking some up for myself. Each sachet lasts at least 16 washes and gives you laundry a wonderful lavender scent. They can also be used in your drawers to make your clothes smell fresh and natural.

If you're on the road, you still have to find a way to wash your lingerie. This Le Blanc 2 oz Travel Care Kit is the easiest way to do that. Each kit contains six small bottles of Le Blanc wash in different scents and each bottle can be used for one full load of laundry. Dump one of these in your hotel sink along with your lingerie when you're traveling for an easy washing routine.

If you're washing your lingerie at home regularly like you should be, you'll also need some kind of tub to wash things in. The best kinds are round and wide, but you can also use those square tubs from big box stores in a pinch. Most importantly, make sure you wash each new piece of lingerie separately the first time. You never know what will bleed and what won't and it's easy to accidentally dye all of your lingerie black by throwing the wrong piece in with the rest.  Let your lingerie sit in your tub or sink for 20 minutes with your Le Blanc wash and then roll it in a clean towel to press the water out or gently squeeze out the water by hand. Then all you have to do is hang it or lay it flat to dry.

Berry-Licious Summer Lingerie


The weather is heating up and the only thing that seems to quench my tastebuds is a semi-constant and liberal infusion of tangy, sweet, berry smoothies. I just can’t seem to get enough of their fresh taste and have been sporting that essential summer style accessory; those purpley-blue, curly smile stains on my upper lip, each and every morning. I’m even trying to match my lingerie to my berry obsession so that the potential for spills isn’t quite so terrifying!

If you’re looking for some berry-licious lingerie that has the same zing, why not give these cheeky Marika Vera Alex high waisted knickers a try? The barely-there silk chiffon floats on the hips and packs a powerful visual with their matte berry tone. Or maybe you want the all the drama and tang, in which case a little shimmer and flair from the raspberry colored Nicole Gill Olivia Waspie or the sleekly stylish Ann Vogue Margaret Robe will tempt you? But why keep it all hidden under layers when you could just as easily show your berry love with Sonata’s Rosa Bodysuit?

When the world is exploding in color and scope for the senses, it just makes sense to embrace it. Whether you’re a raspberry, blackberry or blueberry kind a gal, there’s plenty of lingerie options to choose from to match the season!

Lingerie Summer Sheer


Wherever you are, I know you will all agree that summer is sometimes hard to get through with the heat and humidity. On hot summer days, all I can think about is wearing something sheer, comfortable and flowing away from my skin. Lucky for me, Bella Bella Boutique has tons of sheer pieces that are just perfect for summer!

1 // Beautiful Bottoms Swan Camisole and Skirted Thong Set – Crisp white and fresh. This sheer set is delicate and lightweight enough to last through the summer comfortably.

2 // Zinke Dashboard Babydoll and Ruched Panty Set in Lake – a lovely little babydoll set that can be worn around the house or thrown over a bathing suit.

3 // Rosa Lace Short Robe – This sexy, elegant and pure silk robe makes me swoon.  Sonata knew what they were doing when they were creating this royally perfect piece. And the color is perfect for summer in its deep raspberry hues.

4 // Priscilla Jade Serena Babydoll Set – This bold color combination is completely perfect for summer. And with its stretch charmeuse v-front and bow details, need we say more?

5 // Beautiful Bottoms Blue Bird Silk Playsuit – I adore this sweet shade of lavender on this sheer playsuit. I can just imagine relaxing in this throughout the next few months.

6 // La Lilouche Poppy English Rose Silk Chiffon Camisole – This is one of my favorite sets from La Lilouche. It’s fun and flirty, just how the summer should make you feel when you wear bright pink.

7 // Naked Princess A Thousand Kisses Deep Chantilly Robe – one day when I’ve saved up enough of my pennies, this robe will be in my lingerie collection. I swoon every time I glance at its sheer gorgeousness.

8 // Priscilla Jade “Carlos” Negligee – Believe it or not, black is one of my favorite colors to wear during the summer. With some sun on my skin, black is both slimming and makes your skin tones to appear darker.  This sheer negligee is romantic and sexy.

Do you think sheer is the way to go for summer? Swooning over any of these pieces in particular?
Xoxo,

Summer Lingerie



For me, summer lingerie is all about reflecting the colors that we see outside. Right now my neighborhood is filled with blooming flowers, trees and bushes in all colors of the rainbow and I'm feeling pretty inspired to bring more color into my outerwear and underwear wardrobes. Summery lingerie is a great way to add a secret dash of color to any outfit, no matter how buttoned up you have to be at work or on the weekends.

This turquoise Nina Babydoll Set by Oh La La Cheri Paris is just the thing for a hot day when you're dreaming of the ocean or pool. The halter style neck and underwired cups give you extra support, but the babydoll itself is breezy and easy to wear. It's perfect for lounging indoors with a glass of mint iced tea on a hot day.

I'm not always a fan of very literal flower prints, but this Beautiful Bottoms Bloom Silk Playsuit is definitely an exception. It's clean and classic and the print is stunning. It's made of 100% silk, which will help keep you nice and cool during these hot summer months.

The Zinke Tulsa Bralet in Lilac is one of those pieces of lingerie that is both pretty and practical. Use it as a camisole to show a hint of color under suits and blouses, or just wear it to enjoy the way stretch silk feels.

The Priscilla Jade Primrose Bralette and Ceinture Set is great to slip on under your summer dress for a night out, or just to lounge around in. I love the black edging on both pieces, as well as the trendy chevron stitched girdle. This bright yellow silk set is a perfect way to keep cool during the sunny season.


Finally, I love this Lola Haze Daisy Teddy in Pink because it is the exact color of the hibiscus flowers in my backyard. If that isn't summer lingerie, I don't know what is.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Bridal Lingerie

Bridal Lingerie by Rebecca Ansah (Coming Soon to Bella Bella Boutique)

Can you feel that? It’s wedding season and the bridal fever is firing up into high gear. The lovely ladies are tacking down every last detail and working overtime to make sure all their best laid plans go off without a hitch. These ladies need a bit of rest and a break, the least we could do is provide them with some bridal lingerie that won’t give them a hitch in their wedding waltz.

Forget the boning and stays and just go for the silky comfort of some Ann Vogue knickers or a softly lacy Sonata Lingerie robe. The breeziness of the La Lilouche playsuit paired up with the equally ethereal Naked Princess Thousand Kisses Deep Chantilly Robe won’t cover her up much, but they will keep her cool as she gets ready.

For those brides that are sharing their big day with their mothers and soon-to-be in-laws, a little more coverage may be in order. Luckily Zinke and MC Lounge have some beautiful ivory silk lingerie that are as cozy as they are demure. Whether modest or mischievously seductive, this lingerie is sure to make this stressful time a wee bit more comfortable.



1} Zinke Goodnight Lovely Cami and Bloomer Set

2} MC Lounge Stretch Silk Chemise

3} Ann Vogue Angelica Silk Knickers

4} La Lilouche Elena Ivory Bridal Silk Chiffon Playsuit
