Intimate Experiments

lingerie-video-experiment-quotes-underwear-underpinnings-strapless-bras-youtube2.png

Do you ever dream of a world where you have a lingerie solution for every conceivable outfit and occasion?

Me too.

Unfortunately building the perfect lingerie wardrobe takes a lot of time, trial and error. There is no easy route or quick fix to underwear utopia.

Apparently there are seven different types of breasts and there are countless body shapes and size combinations. What may work for one woman may not work for you. There's no avoiding it - in order find the perfect underpinnings to suit your shape, size and lifestyle you need to be open to experimentation.

The results can vary - sometimes you find a life-enhancing bra or a game-changing ensemble but sometimes you end up with a yeast infection or a pair Spanx so tight they cause indigestion.

It's just an awkward, often embarrassing and sometimes liberating part of life's journey and there is nothing we love more than watching these very real, honest and funny experiments on Youtube.

Enjoy!

LA VIE EN LINGERIE: JESSICA TOWNER

Life-in-lingerie-real-beauty-model-jessica-towner-model-featured.jpg

Jessica is a new full-time model from Brighton. She is self-confessed hippy who loves to promote peace and self-acceptance. Here she shares her individual style, most coveted lingerie and love of gemstones...

Hi Jessica, tell me about yourself:

Hi, I'm 18yrs old and represented by Storm Models. I love acting, psychology and yoga. I studied psychology at college. I've always loved acting so am so happy to be able to do acting auditions through Storm. I've have been full time modelling since July, it’s all very exciting its going really well. I’m already working with clients such as ASOS, New Look etc. I was scouted by Storm at a festival when I was 14yrs old which was the most surreal experience as I'd never thought about modelling.

 Lingerie-la-femme-la-vie-en-lingerie-jessica-towner-storm-models-underwear-victorias-secret-07

How would you describe your style?

I am a definite hippy! I love big patterned harem pants,  loads of wooden jewellery and gemstone rings. I like to wear Free People clothing as it is so well made and definitely reflects my style - although I get most of my clothes from either Camden Market or the Laines in Brighton. I love jewellery too, my favourite ring is a silver band with a Moldovite stone set in it from Two Feathers in Brighton. I like gemstones because of all the different meanings they can have - Moldovite especially. I also make my own jewellery and I've just got the hang of making earrings.

Lingerie-la-femme-la-vie-en-lingerie-jessica-towner-storm-models-underwear-victorias-secret-04

Would you say your lingerie fits into you that style or do you like to express yourself differently or experiment underneath?

It's hard to find lingerie which really matches my general style so usually I just go for things that are simple, lacy and make me feel good. I generally shop for underwear in Urban Outfitters and H&M and have got my eye on a set from "For Love and Lemons" too!!

Lingerie-la-femme-la-vie-en-lingerie-jessica-towner-storm-models-underwear-victorias-secret-03
 What’s your favourite set of lingerie and why?

My favourite set is one I bought really recently from H&M, I love it because it's perfect for me in the way that it's comfortable and has really lovely back detail.

Lingerie-la-femme-la-vie-en-lingerie-jessica-towner-storm-models-underwear-victorias-secret-05

How would you describe you body image?

I have always been body confident. I think it's important to look after your health; I love yoga, swimming.

LA VIE EN LINGERIE: SHAREEFA

Life-in-lingerie-real-beauty-model-curve-plus-models-1-shareefa-j-01.jpg

Shareefa is an full-time curve model, actress and singer. She has worked with many brands such as ASOS, Simply Be, Curvissa and posed for the now famous Swimsuits for All Calendar. Here she shares her views on body image, her love for Victoria's Secret and her lingerie pet peeves...La-Vie-Bike-Nicks_193web

Hi Shareefa, tell me about yourself -

I am a Curve model, originally from Norwich but I’m now living in London. About three years ago I went through a phase where I kept getting approached by photographers and modelling agents and also strangers on the street who were telling me I should model, so eventually I approached an agency and they signed me on the day and I have been modelling ever since.

 

How would you describe your style?

I would say I’m pretty flexible with my style; I don’t tend to stick with just one image or a particular colour palette. I love trying on different fabrics and shapes and finding out what suit me the most. At the moment I’m wearing a lot of shift dresses, I pair them with sandals and a hat for a really simple summer look.

 

Would you say your lingerie fits into you that style or do you like to express yourself differently or experiment underneath?

I experiment a lot with my outer-wear and I always select my underwear very carefully around my outfits so, yes, I would say its in-keeping with my style. I tend to buy new lingerie most months so I have quite a big collection! I have a real pet peeve for bra straps showing and wearing the wrong shape knickers with jeans so I have just about every style to suit whatever I’m wearing. I have this really handy bra converter; it helps hide your straps when wearing racer back tops.

Life-in-lingerie-real-beauty-model-curve-plus-models-1-shareefa-j-02

What are your favourite fashion and lingerie designers/ brands?

My Favourite fashion designer is Chanel, I would shop there everyday if I could. For my lingerie, my number one brand has got to be Victoria's Secret. For me the fit is amazing and I think it's really important to have your lingerie fitting correctly - it really helps me to feel body confident when I know I'm supported!

 

What’s your favourite set of lingerie and why?

I love to mix and match my undies so It's hard to pick just one set! While I don't think you can go wrong with sexy and sophisticated black lace, right now I would have to pick my bright pink bralette from Victoria’s Secret. The colour is amazing!

 

What’s is your worst ever lingerie purchase?

The worst set of underwear I have ever purchased has to be when I was travelling abroad and forgot to pack any underwear in my suitcase so I ran into H&M and picked up the nearest pair I could find, when I arrived at the hotel and opened up the packet I realised I had bought kids undies aged six years!

La-Vie-Bike-Nicks_486web

How would you describe your body image?

I am very comfortable with my body; I embrace my curves, cellulite, stretch marks and all the things that society is forever telling us to hide as women! I think health is the most important thing. I am really into my nutrition and I have a vegetable juice or smoothie everyday and avoid high sugar and processed food. I go to the gym and practice yoga so I know I'm healthy and my body is how it's supposed to be.

 

 

Have you always been happy with your body?

I grew up as a chubby kid I was always teased about my size, but as I grew into my body I learned to appreciate my curves and now I wouldn't change them for the world.

 

 

Are there any words of wisdom you like to live your life by?

Be yourself because everybody else is taken.

As they say "An image is worth a thousand words". So in that case, this must be a dissertation on sexual desire. My favourite lingerie boutique Coco De Mer have recently launched a video hoping to engage people in a new liberated conversation around desire. Shot by an ensemble of directors and photographers, the video is a roller-coaster ride of images, immersing the viewer in the deepest desires of the erotic imagination. The video will run online via the Coco De Mer website and nationwide in cinemas. Click below for a peek at the trailer and we also have a link to the full (rated 18) version at the bottom...

THE X MANIFESTO.

THE VOICE OF THE EROTIC IMAGINATION.

The erotic mind doesn’t quite get the same attention that other parts of life’s rich tapestry do. The erotic appetite is, for many, subdued, denied, un-begun.

Those delights that fascinate our senses, like cuisine, design, fashion, and even our more base pastimes such as celebrity gossip, occupy the cultural psyche in a myriad of forms from books to magazines to TV programmes.

But not matters erotic. They’re strangely limited and repressed.

Everyone has become conditioned to consigning such imagination in this area to a Christmas treat or perhaps a special moment in the first flight of infatuation.

By opening up a more playful conversation on the subject we hope to investigate the exhilarating scope of the erotic mind, delve into where it comes from and how it develops.

We intend to define our brand in this philosophy by becoming the voice of the erotic imagination and generating a powerful progressive energy around the subject.

We believe that the hunger for a more sensitive and intelligent resource on this subject can unlock a virtual storm of information. By truly engaging in the full breadth and depth of a conversation about these things, we can reach a better understanding of, and connection to, what is truly sexual. Our aim is to understand the nuance of human sexual fantasies, and to fulfil them with a greater degree of art and accuracy in our brand offering. We should endeavour to make the human heart beat as it is supposed to.

Yes, a little superficial dabbling is fun in itself, but the true agenda for Coco de Mer is to have those appetites more fully embraced and to help modify behaviour in that direction. In the film, when we declare ‘We can help you think about sex more’ we want to elevate the experiences, to redefine the attention and consideration you give it.

LA VIE EN LINGERIE : JADA SEZER

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-slip-dress-02-main.jpg

Jada is an incredibly popular plus-size model with 30K Instagram followers. She starred in the well known 'Curves Illustrated' shoot for SwimsuitsForAll and in her spare time runs her own blog and gives speeches on empowerment. Here Jada shares her style, her inspirations and her penchant for Parkour...

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-bodysuit-white-shirt-04

Hi Jada, tell me about yourself:

I'm 25 and from London. I'm a full-time model with Models 1 and I was the face of London's first ever plus-size fashion show.  I've been working in New York for the past year but I'm back in London for a while. I wanted to spend some time with my family and I'm looking forward to doing some Parkour. There is a centre I go to in Greenwich, its incredible fun and such a great workout!

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-bodysuit-white-shirt-03

How would you describe your style?

Contemporary elegance with a rock and roll edge. For me it is all about the fit. My favourite designers are Alexander Wang and Helmut Lang. J-brand also produce some great wardrobe staples. Although at the moment I'm mostly just wearing my Nike trainers, some sports leggings, a simple top and a leather jacket.

 

Would you say your lingerie fits into that style?

My lingerie doesn't tend to fit in with my everyday aesthetic. I love black and sexier lingerie. I wear a lot of La Perla, Pour Moi? and Boux Avenue. My lingerie style is more of a classic sexy look. I would prefer to buy edgier lingerie but it's so hard to find any brands like that in my size.

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-robe-06

And how about your swimwear?

I have to admit finding swimwear to my taste is quite hard to find. My favourite bikini is a Pour Moi black halterneck with tie side bikini bottoms.

 

Do you have a favourite set of lingerie?

My Boux Avenue bodysuit, its gives me an amazing silhouette! I love the moulded cups and it really pulls in my waist. My dream set of lingerie would be something strappy, sexy but still supportive. It would be innovative and push design boundaries.

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-robe-07

How do you feel about your body image?

Like every girl I have my hang-up days but I try to listen to my body. You've got to learn to fall in love with your body without feeling the need to conform to anybody else's standards. I think it's great that there seems to be a plus-size trend at the moment, plus-size models are booking the bigger jobs and gaining quite a lot of followers. It's expanding awareness of the media's restrictive beauty standards. When I was growing up there where hardly any plus-size stores, lines or celebrities I could relate to - Now there are so are many plus-size models out there, all different shapes and sizes. It's something I'm really passionate about, in my spare time I give talks at Hubdot events to empower women.

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-slip-dress-05

What do you think makes a woman sexy?

Great underwear of course. And a well suited style - knowing how to dress... If you know how to dress yourself well it showing that you appreciate and understand your body.

Jada-models-one-1-la-vie-en-lingerie-lingerie-la-femme-plus-size-model-black-slip-dress-01

Do you have a favourite quote?

"Be yourself because everybody else is taken".

 

And 3 things you couldn't live without?

Family. My phone. Chocolate.
