Just Wearing Underwear! Introducing Fantasie Lingerie

Ok, so it’s been so hot everywhere! What I’m wearing around the house is very little! I’ve gone from lightweight loungewear to cotton PJ’s then onto the Kaftans and now just underwear!

I’m not moaning about the gorgeous summer we’re having. I’ve loved it. But those later in the daytimes when it’s time to relax has become a little testing in such heat.


The chemise has become my new best wearable friend!

7 pm has become my new favourite time of the day. I head down the bottom of the shaded garden, wearing as little as possible, a cup of tea my and my favourite mag and of course Beau always likes to join me. Remember how tiny she was? 11 months old now and I’m beginning to think I’ve got myself a little pony!

The idea I had in mind to introduce you to the Fantasie brand was how good a piece of kit a Chemise ( I call them petticoats) can be to have in your underwear collection.

Later in the year, I will be in no doubt, wearing some form of knitted wear. I love a knitted dress and a petticoat is fantastic to wear underneath. Anything that’s slightly clingy, a petticoat will solve any issues helping to achieve a smooth finish.



A petticoat is also great under a silk dress or even polyester, and I always find that if I’m wearing tights or stockings, they can create a static looking mess with your clothes just sticking to your legs! so they’re handy for that too!

I have a couple of petticoats hanging in the wardrobe for these reasons and when I was asked to choose something from the Fantasie brand to share with you, this pretty one popped out at me. I love that it’s light in colour, so it won’t show under my lighter winter colours.


I would never have thought I’d be wearing this underwear so soon! Or as much!

The print and the lace are so pretty and go so well together. The quality is excellent and the fit is very good. Comfort is key when buying underwear I think.


Underwear – Bra and Briefs



Here are the lovely matching Bra and Briefs to match the Chemise. Now, when it comes to choosing my Bra’s I’m very fussy!

I get measured professionally once a year in case there are any changes. my size has come in at 34 DD for the last few years and when ordering this online, I did wonder if the size would be accurate. (don’t worry! I’m not modelling this set for you!)

The size did turn out perfect. I’m told that so long as the cup size is good and the little piece in between the two cups is laying flat it’s a good fit, and this does just that. It is a good fit and feels fantastic on. The Bra gives a great shape too.

I got a “woo hoo” from the other half too when trying this on! It really is beautiful on! I don’t know what it is but I always feel that little bit more special knowing that I’m wearing lovely underwear. Do you feel the same?



Fantasie lingerie is available in more than 30 countries. You can click here to find a stockist. I know it’s available in the UK in major department stores such as House Of FraserDebenhams   – John Lewis and Figleaves

    I love this brand. Got myself 4 bra/briefs setsin one go. I am a 36D and they were the best fitting bra I ever found. I think I bought the briefs a bit too large as they feel a little loose after a year (2 years.).
    You look wonderful in your chemise. Cannotbring myself to say petticoat as, to me, they are the tulle versions which make your skirt go wide.

    Yes, your pup is quite grown! Beautiful doggy! I have heard of this lingierie line and it is beautiful! I love the lace detail and it all seems made very well. I will have to check them out. It just makes you feel good to put on something special.

      Thank you Annette. It’s surprising the difference a slip can make under a clingy dress. Plus this came in so handy in that heatwave! xx

    A woo hoo is always appreciated, I’ve taken to wearing a slip/petticaot under a couple of dresses this summer, mainly because they’re see through in a bright light. Thanks for linking up with #pocolo

      Thank you Clearissa. These are really comfortable too xx

    I wish I were confident enough to wear things like this or even just hang out in my undies. My daughter does but I guess because of the way I grew up (4 brothers) I have to always be fully dressed …even in bed I have to have pajamas on no matter how hot it gets.

    My husband also call it pettycoat (his is from South Africa) while here in Australia we call them slips. Yours is very nice, Laurie, very feminine and looks really comfortable

      I know Kim. It’s been so hot here in London this year. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you return xx

    Laurie, I love a nice chemise, full slip we’d call it here in the US, and they’re hard to find these days, since so many women don’t see the need for them anymore. And on a hot day, I always think of the character Maggie in the old classic movie Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, walking around in her slip on a hot Southern day. #BlogCrush

      Thank you, Jean, I’m going to have to check that film out now! I think a slip is great in winter under many items of clothing. I wear them a lot xx

      Thank you Laura. They have some really good quality underwear. We need good foundations right?

    Oh wow, this is so pretty. Love these photos and the lighting too. And Beau is certainly looking just that, beautiful, and so big now! A super (and brave!) post. Hugs, X.

      Thanks Mary. I think you just don’t care in this weather!

  21. August 7, 2018 / 7:07 pm

    Love the chemise, which I would call a “slip”. Whatever it’s called, they’re perfect wear for lounging around the house in a heatwave. And I do swear by them when the weather’s colder, for layering. xxx
