We’ve covered the basics for significant others, but how can we forget our moms? Whether she’s 50 or 80 or anything in between, we have something for her. Our customer base spans from young teens to great grandmothers, so it’s safe to say we truly have something for anyone in your life.

If your mom complains about a sore back and/or is heavy breasted, there’s nothing wrong with the gift of a good bra fitting! Treat her to a gift certificate which, as always, has a free fitting attached to it to give her a much needed boost.

If she’s a customer already, the odds are we have her on file! We like to keep track of what brand and size everyone is, so we’re happy to find what she likes.

Maybe bras aren’t your mom’s thing, or it’s just not the kind of thing you want to gift her. We carry beautiful pajamas and robes to keep her cozy this season!

Our sleepwear is also available in sizes 6-22, but as we mentioned, is selling quickly!

And finally, if you’re stuck for stocking stuffers, our Janira 3 pack underwear are a favourite among our customers, loved for their high grade of cotton and terry lined gusset. Available in sizes S-3XL!

Happy shopping everyone!

Part 1: Lingerie

For your girlfriend, wife, or forever partner, something along the way of lingerie or pajamas are never unappreciated. Whether she wants something sophisticated and classy, or flirty and fab, we truly have something for everyone.

Let’s start for bras. For the ultra-practical no nonsense lady in your life, we carry lots of practical, comfortably, pretty, and functional pieces of lingerie. If you know her size, great! If you don’t, we always carry gift cards and can suggest amounts depending on bra and style. There’s nothing better than the gift of a good bra fitting along with something pretty to match.

Above are options, on options, on options! As you can see, we carry a lot of different styles in basics that are both practical in pretty in sizes 30-52 A-K! Above are pieces from Chantelle, Marie Jo, Passionata, Corin, Empreinte, and Prima Donna (to name a few). All these pieces work great as basics, and are available in every style you could need including full coverage, balcony, strapless, plunge, and more.

If the woman in your life wants something a little more funky than the bras shown above, but isn’t really one for lace, a printed bra is a popular style that brings some fun to her wardrobe while still being a super versatile print.

The above images are simple bras for daily wear, with added fun details from Prima Donna, Passionata, Antigel, and Marie Jo.

Lastly, these pieces are for extravagant girls who want something ultra pretty with a luxurious feel.

For something lux and lacy, we recommend bras from Lise Charmel, Chantelle, Simone Perele, and Empreinte to name a few. They feature beautiful lace details in a variety of flattering cup shapes.

We hope we’ve sparked your imagination, and will be posting about PJ ideas next!

All About: Chantelle

Like many of our favourite brands, Chantelle has existed since the 1800s (1876, in their case), and has a long history in the lingerie sector. The company were innovators in creating elastic knits, but funny enough didn’t dive into the world of bras until an impulse in the 1960s, and opened their first bra manufacturing plant in France in 1962. They obviously were off to a good start, and created the first molded bra 10 years later, which is extremely popular today, over 40 years later.

At Goodnight Goodmorning, Chantelle’s line of basics are our go-to’s for both fitting, and recommendations for everyday bras. They have seamless, soft cup, and spacer foam styles. Because of their diverse range of styles and fabrics, we have customers who range from 20-90 who all love Chantelle for their simple beauty and excellent comfort!

Although all of the bras we carry from Chantelle are somewhere in the realm of basic, we love to grab the seasonal colours, as well as fun new styles that, like the rest of the Chantelle pieces we carry, are suitable for everyday outfits.

Be it sultry plunges or pretty laces and meshes, if you love Chantelle but want to dive into something a little more risque, we have something to suit everybody’s needs.

Everything About Underwear

Everyone has their favourite underwear and oppositely, the styles they absolutely refuse to wear. The same goes for fabric, cut, and even colour. Today we’re talking about EVERYTHING underwear, and all the options available.

First off are fuller coverage underwear. Whether you want to be covered and comfy, or just want that little extra hold and smoothing in your favourite outfit, we carry tons of different styles.

Full coverage underwear vary in underwear height in back coverage, and even level of prettiness. Empreinte and Prima Donna, for example, will often have lace on their panties to give it a little bit of a wow factor, while Simone Perele’s high cut panties are more subdued. Janira is the ultimate basic, with no frills or patterns. Just a comfy high grade cotton and soft terry lined gusset.

Now, boyshorts. Similar to full coverage underwear, but are often a lower cut with a cheeky back.

Boyshorts, like full coverage panties, will vary in height. In general, they’re cheeky, lower rise, and feature pretty lace. Some pieces just feature pretty lace details all over, while others have been simplified making them easy pieces for everyday needs. Brands like Empreinte, Simone Perele, Marie Jo, and more all make beautiful boyshorts as options to match your favourite bra.

Next are the popular basics- bikini cut panties.

Bikini panties are usually small on the sides (1-2 inches), with a lower cut front and a regular coverage back. Being a basic style, they’re one of the easiest to find from every brand. Just about every collection released from different brands will contain bikini cut styles.

Lastly are thongs.

Thongs generally look like bikini cut panties from the front, but have an extremely cheeky behind. Thongs are a great way to say goodbye to panty lines from the back and are easy to pack into your drawer (since there’s not much too them). Unlike a cheeky panty, a thong will expose the majority of your cheeks. They might be done in a simple cotton or spandex fabric, lace, or a mix of the two.

The images shown are just the tip of the iceberg. Within each style of panty there are endless combinations of style, cut, colour, and fabric choices. Because of this, and everyone’s unique preferences, we carry hundreds, if not thousands, of underwear in store in every combination.

Panties are an important undergarment, and we’re always happy to help you find exactly what you need!

Best Sellers from Your Favourites

All of our customers have their favourite brand, and within that brand, usually a go-to bra or two that they love. Best sellers are things that just seem to fit – over and over again. We’re going to go through the best of the best from all your favourite brands!

First up is Chantelle, a long time customer favourite that creates some of our favourite basics. The first style, 1891, gives a rounder look (similar to a moulded cup) without any of the bulk. The second, 3585, is unfortunately discontinued (and on sale right now because of it!), but has a super light spacer foam cup. The last is style 2031 and gives a more natural shape with a completely smooth cup.

This bra from Corin seems to fit just about everyone who tries it! Luckily for those who love 3585 from Chantelle, it has a similar fit and is a great option if you’re looking for something similar.

Empreinte is one of our best selling brands for heavy breasted women. Empreinte’s Cassiopee 07151 on the left has no seam and a really beautiful lace. Erin (07148) on the upper right hand corner lifts, separates, and contains the breasts for a minimized look. The last bra, Grace 07134, is a mostly smooth moulded, flat lace that’s perfect as a tshirt bra but adds no bulk!

Marie Jo is our go to for our smaller breasted customers from A-F. Avero is by far their best selling style, and is available in balcony, plunge, sweetheart, push up, and strapless styles. It’s comfortable and lightly moulded, and available in both neutral and seasonal colours.

Prima Donna is a brand loved by many that fills our drawers. It has one of the largest size ranges, starting at a B cup and going all the way to a J! From them, their styles Deauville, Madison, and Divine. Deauville is a full support bra made for heavy breasted ladies who want to be completely held in. It’s comfortable, light, and has a natural shape. Madison is very similar, but lighter and with less coverage. It’s a great every day bra and goes with everything! Divine, the last bra shown, is a moulded lace jaw dropper that’s seamless… it’s a tshirt bra! It has a flat, moulded, structured lace that gives a round look. It’s beautiful, and totally functional.

We sell lots of basics in store, but always have fun seasonal pieces if you’re looking for something bold and beautiful from all of these wonderful brands and more. These pieces have amazing fit, great hold, and have overall great functionality.

The Holiday Gift Guide: Knowing your partner.

With The Big Day arriving in 21 short days the crunch is on and it’s time to hunt for the perfect gifts for the perfect girl in your life. Christmas gifts can be super easy if you pay attention!

Many people stray from lingerie as a gift; sometimes because it’s too personal, sometimes because of the uncertainty, sometimes it’s just never crossed your mind. With a few easy tips we can help you out.

Step 1: Call us! We track out customers with individual files of what brands they like, what size they wear, and their unique styles of lingerie. If your lady shops with us this will make it much easier.

Step 2: Can’t find her size? Check her bras to see what size she’s wearing (hopefully from a brand we carry as sizing is different for different makes!)

Step 3: Find her style!

_7736110_11104670ch-1891-wu-c_magnifique_sg_moule-ft

Do her bras look like these? Are they padded or soft? She might like to keep it simple with comfy bras from brands like Simone Perele, Chantelle, and Antigel.

Your Proper Fitting Bra

Finding a comfortable, pretty and properly fitted bra can be a stress-inducing, frustrating affair. It’s the same with swimwear shopping. To lighten the load on both fronts, the expert fitters and style advisors at Good Night Good Morning – Anya, Ana Marie and Lorna – can help you find the ideal bra and suit for your body type.

For the past 18 years the destination shop that has become known as Oakville’s Bra Heaven, has helped countless women of all shapes don figure-flattering undergarments, lingerie, swimwear and more, in sizes ranging from 4 to 24 and cups from A to I.

Perle_white_low_res_small_logo

The drive to outfit women in the right bra – which is as important to women’s comfort and health as wearing the right shoe size — was the catalyst for Good Night Good Morning owner Anya Izakowski to open her shop in April 1998. After graduating in the fashion design program at Sheridan College in 1996 and with her background in the bra industry, starting a lingerie business was a perfect fit.

Considering that only 25 per cent of women are actually wearing the right size bra, she has a lot of work ahead of her. For the uninitiated here’s what’s involved in a bra fitting. First, with your bra and top on, Good Night Good Morning’s experts wrap a tape measure around you to determine your size. The experience is comfortable and professional. A bra fitter will source the right size from Good Night Good Morning’s extensive inventory and wait outside of the fitting room for you to change into the chosen bra. The bra fitter will then come into the fitting room to do any necessary adjustments, make sure the bra fits correctly and ensure you are wearing the best style for your figure.

On offer is an extensive selection of styles and sizes from petite to full figure cups from A PrimaDonna_Madison_Black2.jpgto L. Lines we carry are Chantelle, Simone Perele , Prima Donna, Mari Jo, Ulla, Emprainte, Lise Charmell and more.

As with swimsuits, body shapes and sizes come into play in finding the right bra. For example, short ladies will often have a problem with wire digging under their arms or perhaps the straps being too long. Tall ladies may find the straps are too short, and fuller figured ladies may find they are always overflowing in their bras.

Personality and lifestyle also are important in finding the right bra: sports bras for the active set, maternity bras for new moms, mastectomy bras for cancer survivors and so on. Every woman should have at least three everyday bras in her wardrobe – nude and black are the most favorite colours, but more and more women are choosing fashionable colours too.

CH-3585-WR-C_Chic_Sexy_SG_Spacer-FT

When it comes to finding a swimsuit that accentuates your assets from the curvaceous to the athletic body, the key is balancing your proportions.

If you are curvier with a full bust, support and coverage in a swimsuit is a must. Opt for ones with underwire or molded cups with adjustable straps, which provide extra support for your girls. Look for swimwear that is cup-sized like your regular bra, including styles that go higher than a D cup. Good Night Good Morning carries swimwear labels Antigel, Prima Donna, Empreinte, Ulla and more that support a larger bust up to an I cup.

For those with smaller chest sizes, opt for tops with some padding and which also create cleavage. And embrace the season’s patterns to create the illusion of a larger chest. Lines by DIVA or Antigel are your best bet.

Tummy-concealing suits can help allay your fears about bearing it all. Good Night Good Morning carries many one-piece swimsuits, tankinis and even bikini styles to help flatten your middle. Consider tailored swimsuits with built-in support panels made by Anita or Prima Donna.

If black is your go-to colour because you think that’s the only way to appear slimmer, Marie-Jo_Avero_White_low-res.jpgthink again. Artfully designed colours and bold prints can create definition. Brands including Charmline and Maryan Mehlhorn are known for their colourful patterns that can make any woman look one size slimmer.

If you have more of a straight up-and-down body type you need to look for swimsuits that play up your curves. Tops or bottoms with ruffles, embellished detailing, bows, and bold patterns can create the illusion of a feminine curve.

Her bra is the first thing she puts on, and the last thing she takes off during her day. Let her think about you while wearing beautiful European lingerie that she will absolutely adore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lingerie is my next lover after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes – that inner, secret glamour.

Lingerie is one of the most intimate gifts you can give and receive. The pieces you wear fit snug against your body and make you feel good. Giving lingerie is a wonderful gift and means a lot to the woman receiving it.
