The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

Mom!

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!

Their swimwear reminds us that both on an off the beach, your breast size does not need to limit what you wear. You can get a cute print on gorgeous swimwear with all the support you’ll need.

We’ll keep updating you as we receive more swimwear throughout the season!

All About: Lise Charmel

One of our main brands of luxury lingerie we carry in store is Lise Charmel (and their sub-brands Eprise, Antinea, and Antigel). They gloat the biggest price tags in store for bras, but as anyone who’s tried Lise Charmel knows, it’s worth it.

Founded in the 1950s in France, Lise Charmel is a relatively newer company. They’ve created several sub-brands to target different audiences and price points of their loyal customers. They’ve won several medals and distinctions over the years for their beautiful work. We love their extensive size range that, unlike many luxury companies, includes a diverse range of body and breast types.

Lise Charmel uses beautifully designed French lace, expertly cut and places on their bras to give it a regal appearance. We carry their soft, padded, and push up bras in plunge, balcony, and full coverage styles.

For our customers really looking to treat themselves, we invite them to try on a bra from this luxurious line and feel the comfort, support, and elegance of Lise Charmel.

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.

All About: Marie Jo

Marie Jo is a brand from Belgium, and a sister company to Prima Donna (founded in the 1800s!) who specialized in beautiful lingerie targeted at smaller/average busted woman from an A-F cup. For years, Marie Jo has been an important and popular brand we carry as it fits so many individuals.

Their fall collection was beautiful, and as always, featured a wide range of styles such as demi cups, balconettes, plunges, push ups, and more! They always incorporate different styles to suit different wants and needs. Above are a lacey padded bra, and smooth tshirt bra (their signature Avero), and an unlined lace bra.

Avero is a style from them we love and always carry. Avero has been an ongoing stayer collection for years that customers have grown to love. It’s easily spotted with its pretty gingham cup and trademark daisy straps. It comes in plunge, strapless, sweetheart, push up, and balconnet styles.

Marie Jo is known to love beautiful colours, be it jewel tones, soft pastels, or bright and bold tones. They’re styles have similar fits to¬† guarantee your favorite brand will fit you across the board. They offer sizes 30-40 A-F in their collections, and for that reason, Marie Jo has been a long lasting favourite to carry for our customers and devoted MJ fans.

The season is young, and as usual we will continue receiving new stock! Follow our blog to keep up with what’s new.

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.

How to Style: Arianne Tops!

For the past few years, Arianne tops have been an extremely successful addition to our store. Made from natural fibres (rayon, a cool soft bamboo fibre), these tops are a soft and comfy way to look like you mean business.

Work apparel doesn’t have to be a boring pantsuit and blouse anymore. People are mixing and matching pieces and looking for fun transitional pieces that are more versatile.

All the outfits shown have a bit of fun added to them, and can be re-imagined with a beautiful Arianne top. If you’re into a more sultry, simple look black or gray is an amazing go to. If you’re a little more outgoing, adding a pop of colour like the beautiful red or light denim is a great way to transition your wardrobe into fall.

They’re available in sizes S-XL, and are fairly generous and roomy. We definitely recommend trying this brand out!
