The Summer of Love

To help inspire you, we have come up with our top five romantic destinations along with some hints and tips on what to pack…

Kenyan safari – Take on the adventure of a lifetime as you experience the culture and breathtaking landscapes of a Kenyan safari. Of course, on such a trip, practicality must come first and with high temperatures, protecting the skin from sun damage is essential. The ‘Black & Gold’ maxi dress from Sunflair is the perfect way to cover up. Eye-catching and flattering, it makes a versatile addition to any holiday wardrobe.

Paris, France – The city of romance itself, packed with character, charm, fine French food and of course shopping, Paris has it all. Add a little French style to your wardrobe before you go by including lingerie from Lejaby who are renowned for adding French flair to their designs. The ‘Fleur de Peux’ range is sensual enough to be romantic yet practical too. The contrast of black embroidery over a nude background is flattering to most skin tones and detailing such as the velvet bow adds a feminine touch.  The range is available in cup sizes B to E and culotte briefs and Brazilian tangas are available.

Hawaii, USA – From relaxing on the picture-perfect Lanikai Beach, Oahu, to exploring the volcanoes on Hawaii Island, Hawaii is the perfect destination for those looking to explore, relax and have a touch of luxury.  The blend of vibrant colours and striking design on Gottex’s ‘Electric Vibe’ range make it perfect for a Hawaiian break. The flattering top panel on the bandeau design, with its twist detailing adds support and interest. The range also includes a V-neck swimsuit along with a pareo for covering up. hAWAII

Caribbean cruise – A cruise is the perfect way to spend quality time together. A mix of relaxing on board the ship and sightseeing when the ship stops, means there is something to keep everyone entertained. With life on board often requiring formal attire for evening meals, you will need to pack a range of evening gowns. Opt for structure to enhance your natural curves. Lingerie such as the ‘Slim Fit Slip’ from the ‘A La Folie’ Prima Donna range will offer the support you need and help smooth away lumps and bumps, enhancing your silhouette. The range also includes coordinating bra and pants. 


Italy – Whether it is Rome, Florence, Venice or another place in this fantastic country, Italy is sure not to disappoint. From the food to the amazing history and stunning sights, a trip to Italy is something that will stay with you forever. With time spent sightseeing you will want to dress casually but will also need to take smarter wear for evenings. Make your lingerie work hard by packing nude coloured bras and pants that can be worn underneath clothing of all colours. Prima Donna’s timeless ‘Satin’ range, available in cup sizes C to H, is available in natural, cognac and summer glow. The skin-coloured tones mean it is perfect to wear under white or light fabrics and the seam free design gives a smooth shape.
