Seeing as it’s coming up to Valentine’s Day I thought I’d write about my favourite handmade lingerie companies, but in all honesty I’ll take any excuse to talk about lingerie! Whether you want to give your partner some inspiration for gifts this February or treat yourself then new underwear is always a good idea. So this year instead of giving your money to a big company like Victoria’s Secret or Ann Summers, take the time to look at the smaller brands like Feiminn, Wear Clementina and Cream to see how much hard work they put into designing and crafting handmade beautiful intimates.

Feiminn are one of the first lingerie companies I discovered through Instagram and I instantly fell for their beautifully designed bralettes. They add that extra touch to your outfit, making you feel beautiful and sexy before you even finish getting dressed. Although there are some colourful pieces most of the lingerie is black, which needless to say I love. Their bralettes are extremely delicate with lots of appliqué and lace detailing used throughout many of the designs, however with the elastic underband they remain supportive. Feiminn are also very helpful when it comes to ensuring that you get the perfect fit as their size guide is easy to follow and you can always message them if you’re uncertain. All my Feiminn purchases have made wonderful additions to my lingerie collection and I will continue to buy from them in the future.
Flora Applique Set
There is something so satisfying about wearing new lingerie, the empowered feeling it gives you and Wear Clementina pieces do just that. Clementina create elegant designs in a variety of gorgeous materials including lace, velvet, and mesh, with appliqué and unique strap detailing. You can choose to buy pieces individually or as a complete set, either way as everything is handmade for you it will fit like a dream! My pieces from Clementina never fail to be beautiful, comfortable and make me feel confident, definitely one of my favourite lingerie companies. They have just dropped a Valentines collection so make sure you show them some love and take a look.
Olive Black | Olive White
I first found Cream Intimates through one of their Instagram competitions and I was lucky enough to win the gorgeous black bralette pictured above. Soon after I asked for a custom order to have a similar bralette made in white and they were lovely enough to oblige, now that is what I call good customer satisfaction. Cream create the perfect balance between lingerie that is beautiful while remaining extremely comfortable. Their pieces use very soft cotton and lace, with most of the designs coming as a set so you have the full look ready to wear. When you receive your order from Cream it arrives with a mesh laundry bag to keep it safe when washing and inside a sleek black box, this kind of attention to detail is what makes them stand out as a company.
