Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations in Lingerie

May 31, 2012

There’s no mistaking it, 2012 is an exciting year for the UK where festivities are already underway for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend and with the Olympic torch already being relayed through the country ahead of the London 2012 games this summer.  This year is definitely the time to feel proudly patriotic, and whilst we decorate our homes and streets with bunting and flags, companies are also joining in the British spirit, including some of our most loved UK lingerie brands.

Marks and Spencer hit the road, quite literally, this month with a lingerie range to commemorate the Queen’s Coronation back in 1953.  The sumptuous collection is inspired by 50s lingerie and includes more current styled pieces.

The vintage looking satin bra and french knickers is a stunning heritage set but sadly the bra is only for A-C cups.  There is something for the bigger boobed woman who wears a DD-GG cup and doesn’t want to miss out on the Jubilee fun, and that comes in the form of a more modern designed animal print plunge bra.

Luxury British label, Lucile, are launching a very patriotic box set of a trio of knickers.  The knickers are adorable as the box they come in, but I’m yet to establish when they will be on sale.  Hopefully very soon!

Huge bra brand, Gossard, have created a Jubilee offering too: their best selling Superboost style in a Union Jack (or flag as it should correctly be!) print.  It’s cute, patriotic and available in up to a G cup.  You can now buy it from Figleaves.

And for the pin up queen in you, What Katie Did has created a limited edition Union Flag Corset.  It’s such a stunning piece in vibrant union colours and despite the initial wait for your corset to be made for you, it will be so worth the wait!

Have you seen anything particularly lingerie commemorative for the Jubilee celebrations?
If you’re a lingerie designer or retailer who has made something British and patriotic for this year, I’d love to hear from you!
