[Review] Gottex Swimsuit

I can fly!

I recently (ahem, a few months ago) got the opportunity to pick a swimsuit from the ukswimwear sortiment to review. It was a hard choice, because there are a) a lot of nice styles available and b) I'm between sizes when it comes to onepiece suits - small boobs and big butt and all that.

I loved browsing the site since I never really looked at higher price swimwear before. I love luxury lingerie, but swimwear always remained functional only - until now! Since I started to do more aerial classes (I do pole dance, aerial hoop and aerial U-silks/hammock) I am feeling more and more comfortable in skimpier work out gear. That's why the ukswimwear team and me decided that I will chose a garment that I can not only use for swimming but also for workout - I do a lot more workout than swimming ;)

I ended up choosing this Gottex Cut Out Style Swimsuit in a size UK 10, which is a compromise: I would need the 8 for my boobs and the 12 for my bum. It retails for 95GBP.

Help I'm alive - my heart keeps beating like a hammer

Hi everyone, so nice to see you're still here!

I love that although this main blog has hit a dry spell I know that you are still here, waiting for updates. And today I'm happy to say that, yes I'm still here too! I made a big decision a while ago to quit my job and start working somewhere else - which means going from a very intense workload to a regular 40hrs week. And I can - not - wait.

I have so many plans for this blog, for my life, for you! It will be glorious. 

I promise you, it will be worth waiting till summer because I have some awesome projects in the pipeline!

So long, why don't you head over to my instagramtwitter or facebook - where I am still talking, rambling and posting about lingerie a lot? Hope to see you there!

And to give you some lingerie candy, I'll just repost a few of my instagram pics so you can see what I've been up to the last weeks, so click on to see some of my most beloved treasures:

The Underpinnings Museum - Of Space Suits and Lingerie


The Underpinnings Museum - no people in space without our underpinnings, who knew! It was the craftsmanship of lingerie seamstresses and company Playtex who built the first space suits. Didn't know that? Me neither - until I watched the video pitch for the super awesome kickstarter that started today: The Underpinnings Museum.

Their kickstarter describes it like this:
As frivolous as it may seem on the surface, underwear plays a pretty important role in people's lives. Documentation of lingerie in the larger world of fashion isn't as extensive as other areas, and it is important to document these beautiful objects for the future. These delicate garments are a finite resource that cannot last forever: in many instances, century old silk is already fragile and beginning to shatter. The online museum offers a perfect platform to record these items before they succumb to the ravages of time."

[Review] Fairytales by Angela Friedman


I owe you this review for over half a year. I've been a bad blogger. BUT I'm super active on social media, I recently also caved and joined instagram - come find me at @kurvendiskussionen over there! - and I am now officially a facebook person too. So, yay?

Anyway, after my short and super awesome holiday in London - which deserves its own blogpost - I'm motivated to write ALL the things. So I'm starting with reviewing this darling set i bought last year from Angela Friedman's Fairytale by AF line!

Angela Friedman makes gorgeous luxurious lingerie in her studio in North Carolina (which, btw, if you sign in to her Newsletter you get 10% off on your first order. You're welcome.) and besides making her high price works of art she also launched a lower budget and super cute line - Fairytales by AF. The Fairytales line is super pastel, super frilly, super fun, super girly, super cute. The Fairytales Line is available via her website and also her etsy store.
