I'm so excited to announce that Honeypot has moved from New Road to Main North Road in Clare, South Australia; very exciting! We opened this past Monday (7th Jan) and it was full on, but wonderful.
It's so nice to be able to be more accessible for customers and to actually have a window display. Our first one was nice and busy, with lots of inspiration, mostly made up of swimwear, with a glimpse of Simone Perele, Bassoni, Panache, Little Minx and Cake Lingerie.
This week I'm thinking of doing a retro / pin-up inspired display with some beautiful garments from Kiss Me Deadly and Stockings & Romance, in honour of a customer who is competing in the Miss Pin-Up Australia competition! If you have any suggestions of garments you'd like to see in there, please let know ;-)
Hannah has also been loving the new store, with more space to roll around on and plenty more customers to coo over her. I swear I've had people come in this week, see that Hannah wasn't there and left the shop! Nice!
I was so very excited to receive my Peaches & Cream maternity bra in the post the other day and I have to say that I wasn't disappointed! In my hunt to find a great maternity bra for myself I have also been inadvertently finding great bras for my customers, and this one is no exception!
First of all the gorgeous colour and the cute bows were enough to have me giggling with excitement. It is so nice to feel feminine and comfortable yet chic at the same time. I also love that this is a plunge bra, so that you can get around in tops that show a bit of cleavage, whilst still feeling fully supported. The straps aren't overly wide either (even on a 14J) so sleeveless tops/dresses with thinner straps are a definite possibility.
There was no double boob effect at all and I was fully encased. When breastfeeding I felt comfy and supported by the side sling, although this one isn't for the terribly modest. It allowed me to go pretty much fully exposed, which meant Hannah had greater access.
One life-changing feature that I must tell you about is the adjustable clip. When I became full with milk I simply flipped the clip up and moved it down. Alternatively, when my boobs looked like old tea bags again after a feed, I moved the strap up and hey-presto, they were back where they should be again :-)
There are 2 downsides that I could find with this bra. The first was that I have developed a terrible habit of pulling my bra straps up after a feed to wiggle them back into place and so I kept undoing my feeding clips :-/ I'm sure not whether this was because they're lower down than I'm used to or because they're a bit more sensitive.
The other drawback is that the seam is quite prominent at the front and side of the cups, which meant that everyone knew what was going on under my clothes when I was wearing a tighter top. This isn't a deal breaker, however, because I was feeling great in it.
So, at the end of the day, I'm delighted with my new bra and will definitely be strongly recommend women of all sizes (B to a J cup) to try Lorna Drew Nursing Lingerie. I will be putting my first order in very soon to start stocking this fab brand and the Cotton Rose Peaches & Cream bra will definitely be one of them! :-D
I think it's very possible that I'm in love... with this latest offering from Kiss Me Deadly!
It's a super sexy, very lush limited edition turquoise satin set with black lace and satin bows. The Lydia bra is 50s inspired and comes in sizes 10-16 B-DD cup.
Other pieces in this collection include a 6 strap suspender belt, 6 strap longline girdle, full satin brief with sheer panel and turquoise contrast seamed stockings.
This set would make a fabulous gift for Christmas, as the suspender, girdle, brief and stockings are all sized for easy understanding; either small, medium, large or XL. Size 10 = small, size 12 = medium, size 14 = large and size 16 = XL. If you're not sure, take a quick peek at your partner's underwear drawer and go with the predominant size.
If you prefer, Honeypot can wrap your gift for you prior to posting, so that your loved one doesn't see the fabulous garments you've chosen. All garments come wrapped in tissue paper and gift boxes can also be purchased through the 'More' tab at the top of the website. Please indicate in your order if your purchase is a gift for someone and the price tags will be removed.
Alternatively, why not consider buying a gift voucher? That way your partner can choose the perfect piece or ensemble without you having to angst about sizing, colour or style preference.
Don't forget that you can contact Mel at Honeypot Lingerie with any questions you may have.

I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that Honeypot Lingerie is going to be stocking some new, award-winning brands, including Kiss Me Deadly and Lorna Drew Nursing Lingerie.
Kiss Me Deadly specialises in vintage inspired retro lingerie "designed for femme fatales; glamorous, sensual and intelligent women with just a hint of danger". Their range includes suspender belts, girdles, cinchers, corselettes, basques, stockings, bras and retro swimwear, which I'm just a little bit in love with at the moment!
I'll be putting my first order through for KMD in the next week or so, so if you see something you love either on the Facebook page or here on the website, please let me know (or purchase) and they'll be in your hot little hands soon! (NB - some styles are limited editions and I cannot guarantee that a certain size or colour will be available at all times; they're just TOO fabulous!)
Our local pool is just about to open up again and I was so worried that I wouldn't be able to find a pair of bathers that would a). fit (kind of important I'm told...) and b). make me look half decent! This is particularly important this season as I am still breastfeeding and so I am a little out of proportion with the rest of my body.
Thank goodness for Panache Swimwear!!! Not only do their bathers all feature underwired support, but they go from a D cup up to a K cup! Phew!
This particular style is the one I've chosen - it's got concealed underwired support and a snap clip at the back. The straps are adjustable and I just love the ruching in the tummy and bust areas - I'm hoping that this will create the illusion that it's all ruching and not just my own folds ;-)
Bring on the pool! :-D
