England is in the spotlight again today. England says Happy Birthday on the Queen’s official Birthday ….
Although the diamond Jubilee celebrations are over the royal lingerie still remains ….. and it is on sale!
I am a fan of pomp and circumstance and had to watch as England celebrated in royal style. All aspects of the event hit the media including souvenirs to collect and treasure.
Marks and Spencer, the famous British department store, celebrated in their own way by offering Diamond Jubilee Lingerie. They designed a limited edition line of lingerie in the style of 1952, the year the queen took the throne.
I will admit I was expecting red, white and blue in the British flag print on panties or golden crowns on bras. I was surprised to see the line of vintage style and charm.
The designers at Marks and Spencer used their archive of designs from 1952 to draw inspiration for this line. They researched the fashions of the time and produced a lovely, slightly retro line of bras, panties and teddies.
Some things had to be modernized such as the use of stretch fabrics. The sizing has also taken a modern twist. In 1952 Marks and Spencer sold lingerie in 3 sizes. Small, medium and large. The new line is available in bra sizes 30DD to 44GG and panties in 6-18.
Black and soft pink are the main colour choices in this line. A regal purple satin adds the royal touch and an exotic leopard print mixture adds some flash.
You can find these styles at the Marks and Spencer online boutique. Some sizes are sold out but most are still available and they are on sale for 30% off.
