Oh you do like to tease!

You may or may not recall our famous (or infamous) ‘All Wrapped Up Body Bow’, which gained a bit of a reputation as the world’s most risqué piece of lingerie, and became quite the worldwide hit.  

All Wrapped Up Body Bow


"Give the gift of yourself, with this playful and sexy All Wrapped Up Body Bow!
Sometimes the best gift you can give is yourself, so why not give it wrapped up in this flirtatious body bow? Seal it with a kiss, and enjoy being unwrapped!"

After we unleashed it into the world, it received a wide-spanning reaction and left some fashion commentators a little flushed in the cheeks. While some found it cheeky and fun, others went so far as to call it bizarre! 
So for this Valentine’s Day we decided to stir things up a little again. We bring you its devilish sequel - the ‘Body Bow’ Alyssa Bra. Dubbed as a stylish way to ‘bring burlesque to the bedroom’, the chiffon bra playfully ties up in different ways, but unties at a gentle tug.

The ‘Body Bow’ Alyssa Set

"Provocative set in delicate black chiffon. The underwired bra has two wide chiffon ties which are fashioned into a bow across the bust, giving full or minimal coverage. The ties can be playfully worked in a variety of ways. The matching brief features a softly tied fixed bow and a gently elasticated waistband." 

We wanted to indulge you with a piece that we think strikes the perfect chord between delicate, sexy, and playful. 
To tie it up or untie? We’ll be leaving that to you temptresses.

The Changing Shape of Women

Bluebella Blog

From the fifties female to the modern woman: The team at Bluebella rolled up our sleeves to dig up the data on how the average British woman’s figure has changed in the course of 60 years.
So how much have women's figures changed exactly?
Well according to government statistics, Miss fifties stood at 5ft 2in tall, was a size 12 with a 34B cup and 28 inch waist, and weighed in at 9st 10lbs with a size 3 shoe.
Now, the modern woman stands at 5ft 5in, and is a size 16 with 36DD breasts and a 34 inch waist. She weighs 11 stone and wears size 6 shoes.

So not only is the average lady 3 inches taller, but she is curvier, wears bigger shoes, and has fuller breasts too!
As Bluebella CEO Emily Bendall says:
“the modern woman is likely to exercise at least twice a week - consuming 2,300 calories a day compared to 1,800 calories back then. She is much healthier than her Fifties counterpart.”
And the best news of all is that the modern woman is also a lot richer (hooray!), earning £530 a week instead of the measly £10 fifties females used to pocket.

Bluebella's CEO Emily added that the classic 2017 woman devotes:
“...around 30% more of her income to her wardrobe.This is reflected in the size of her lingerie collection which is twice the size of 1950s woman. She now has an average of 12 bras compared to just six in the 1950s.”
We certainly don't blame ladies for celebrating their bigger curves and pay checks with more lingerie!
Since lingerie is becoming an increasingly big part of the modern woman’s wardrobe, Bluebella’s main focus is to create a fashion forward mix of provocative and chic lingerie sets and pieces.

Although it's a challenge for designers and lingerie brands, Bluebella believe it’s high time the fashion industry adapted to the modern woman.
That is why we have designed the MORE Collection for the more voluptuous figures, with bras ranging from DD to G, to bring MORE gorgeous lingerie to MORE gorgeous women.
Challenge accepted!

Bluebella's Top Hot Trends for 2017

Because we’re so relieved the cursed year of 2016 is finally over, we’ve teamed up with our favourite bloggers to bring you a list of what trends we predict are going to be big this year…

Phoebe Night Shirt:
Everyone has been loving the 2016 Pyjama trend so much that not only is it continuing into 2017, but robes will be joining them in the wardrobe. This year is about the posh robe, the fancier the better! Our chiffon and satin range of kimonos are perfect. They will hug you in the morning, and work as a sultry overcoat in the evening. Who knew Hugh Hefner was so stylish?

Long Kimono Black: Kimono Ivory:

You might not have seen kitten heels on your feet since the days of Disney Princess dress-up, but they are back. It’s time to dust those kittens and get funky. Just try to avoid gaps in the pavement!

Fashion is moving away from perfect tailoring and tidyness, towards a more raw, relaxed and unfinished look. Think chaos at the factory: exposed linings and zippers, raw edges, odd seams and frays. Our bestselling Lyra bra might be a good place to start.  Move over perfectionists, this is the year of imperfectionism.

Big and bold baby, this is not the year for subtlety. Fantastically chunky and quirky designs on the horizon. Just imagine UFO meets 80s meets art school meets bicycle chain. Mismatched or single earrings, arm cuffs, ear cuffs, raw stones…lots to play with. The same goes for lingerie; bold is beautiful - what Bluebella does best.

 Shine, shine and more shine. This trend is turning girls across the world into magpies. Lots of scope to experiment with shape and dimensions due to the dazzling mirror finish to create different optical illusions. We’re expecting a Kardashian-esque contouring explosion for nails.

Although we’ve been championing them for a while, it’s good news for Bluebella fans - bralettes will be a big feature of the 2017 wardrobe. Wear them under or over your shirts, and experiment with different fabrics and designs. Spotted on the Milan Spring/Summer 17 catwalk, these garments can be dressed up for a sophisticated look or dressed down for something a bit more cheeky.

Originally championed by cautious bike cyclists as the safe option, reflective fabrics have been reclaimed by the fashion world and turned into some pretty daring pieces. Opt for reflective details for a sporty chic look or just go all out. Blindingly obvious!

The days of the Bardot wasp-waist are returning. Our range of basques will make your figure look breathtaking, without leaving you breathless. Or for a more casual cinched look, why not try one of our sexy suspenders?
No excuses not to look sensational in 2017.
