Lingerie Gifts for your Loved One

Lingerie Gifts for your Loved One

It still remains that when it comes to buying Christmas Gifts, sexy lingerie is still a really popular choice when being bought by your boyfriend, fiancé or husband. Shop window displays fill with satin nighties, pyjamas, cami sets & so on.
All of these are great lingerie gift ideas, mainly because sizing is a bit easier, getting the incorrect size is still one of the biggest mistakes made by other halves when buying sexy underwear.
Not only does it mean you have to go to the trouble of exchanging your new underwear for the right size, but if he's gone & bought a bigger size, then he's in trouble as well!!!

When it comes to Christmas lingerie ideas, we always like to suggest a nice satin chemise, or cami set. They are easier to get the right size. first time round, usually involving a small, medium, large or extra large rather than getting terribly muddles with the cup sizes when choosing a sexy bra set. A lace babydoll is a great choice to add a bit of sauciness, our Lisa Babydoll has lace and frills and is very festive in a fiery red option.
Of course is you're smart you can always drop subtle hints around the festive period, send the odd picture to your other half along with your size, after all, some guys just need to be told. On the plus side, if you have given them a bunch of options you're sure to get something that you think is sexy & romantic, because lets face it ladies, when it comes to sexy lingerie options between partners can be poles apart.
Our Elegant Rhinestone Corset is an absolutely beautiful choice for lingerie lovers out there, it has  a beautiful Venice lace detail on front that is embellished with sparkling rhinestones along with princess line boning which offers stunning shape to your waist. It also comes with removable/adjustable garters and a matching thong to complete your sexy look.
A well fitted & correctly worn sexy corset is one of the luxuries when it comes to ladies lingerie. They give great support for the breast especially in plus size lingerie size, & the boning helps to wonderfully  define the outline of the figure to help bring about an iconic hourglass shape.


Finally, one of our little favourites this year, which is a great idea for a stocking filler is the tickle me thong with a playful little feather attached. Like I said some people just need to be told!
Moonrise at Midnight would like to wish you a
 Merry Christmas.

Eye Dream Photography

Eye Dream Photography
How and why you began your photography?
My father and grandfather were photographers and I have grown up with experience of both ends of the camera. Some of my earliest memories are of my father locking himself away in the dark room with the smell of the chemicals emanating from the room and then excitedly showing me his finished images.
Photography really peaked my interest when digital photography started to appear as I loved the fact you could instantly see the image as soon as it was taken. Initially I took it up as a hobby, but found the whole aspect of the creative side captivating and wanted to learn more and more, not only about the equipment I was buying but also about the technical side, particularly lighting as it affects a picture dramatically and is the difference between a good and bad shot.
 I set up my business Eye DreamPhotography nearly 7 years ago and started off doing people portraits and landscapes. I then did some training with an established wedding photographer who approached me as he’d seen some of my work and wanted me to ‘second-shoot’ for him and I loved it. I really enjoyed trying to get more creative images of the bride and groom and create something that was a little different. After 2 years I had the skills and confidence to go it alone with the weddings and haven’t looked back. It’s a fantastic feeling being such an integral part of someone’s special day and capturing memories and emotions they'll remember forever.
How would you define your style?
I have a varied style and can create classical images as well as very contemporary and creative ones. I like to be able to look at a scene and a couple and adapt to what the situation calls for. If the couple is quite quirky and wants something different that’s great, it allows me to let my imagination run wild! Even when all you have to work with is a brick wall next to a main road.
What do you find most challenging as a photographer?
Trying to fit everything in. I do all of my photography myself as well as the editing side, so balancing that with marketing and family life can be a challenge but I love what I do and wouldn’t change it. My 2 year old son is already showing an interest in photography so hopefully he will join me when he’s older and we can share the workload!
What would be your best piece of advice to the bride and groom on the big day?
Relax! The build up to a wedding can be very stressful and there is a lot of pressure to have everything perfect on the day. If you have picked your suppliers well then it’s their job to make everything perfect and the bride and groom should be able to relax and enjoy their wedding day. I like to offer my couples the opportunity to have a pre-wedding shoot so we can get to know each other and this lets them see how I work and helps them understand how I give gentle direction to create the images I take on their wedding day. The last thing anybody wants is to be ordered around on their wedding day. I’ve found that by giving suggestions rather than orders, creates better images because they look more natural and relaxed.
Whose work has influenced you most?
Jerry Ghionis is a favourite. His control of lighting and the use of locations is phenomenal. Other big influences are Yervant who has the ability to create powerful images with very little kit; Dave Nunn has a very classic style and his images are very elegant; and Iain Gomes, who is excellent with his use of light and creates some very dramatic contemporary images.

Sexy Lingerie and Stylish Photography = Boudoir

Sexy Lingerie and Stylish Photography = Boudoir

Boudior photoshoots are becoming increasingly popular, especially nearing Christmas and Valentine's Day following soon after, they make for great gift ideas. The images themselves can be the present or the boudoir photoshoot can be a present for someone special, the whole boudoir experience can be a real treat.

Depending on the look you're after, with all different props, sets, lighting styles and choices of sexy lingerie you can achieve whatever style you want from burlesque, to Classy or sexy vintage. There's also a huge variety of boudoir photographers now offering different packages including hair & make-up, with a glass of bubbly, free image and you can even spoil yourself & choose from a selection of new lingerie for the shoot to accommodate a few outfit changes.

When it comes to choosing your underwear for a boudoir session, the world is your oyster, but for this post, I thought we'd  just look at a few corsets. If you're looking to accentuate your curves and create a sculpted hourglass shape to your figure then a well chosen sexy corset will do all of this and more,  the boning in a corset is excellent for pulling your figure in at the waist & having the effect of reducing it by anything from 2"-4".
A lace or satin corset with ruffled edges is also great at invoking the idea of suggestion, and being slightly revealing while maintaining a classic elegant look of sophistication.

Not all women's corsets are firm boned, as not everyone is looking for a maximising waist clinching effect, or indeed are looking for something a little more revealing, and a soft lace corset is ideal. A lot of or sets come with removable suspenders allowing for the addition of a pair of lace top black stockings or hold ups o finish the look.

Pearl & Lace Lingerie to Invoke Suggestion!

Sexy lingerie from Moonrise at Midnight
There are just some instances when you're buying sexy underwear & lingerie that it's worth remembering that it's about the idea of invoking suggestion, depending on the occasion of course! That's not to say sexy lingerie shouldn't make you look and feel absolutely fabulous about yourself, of course it should, but you can also get a lot of fun out of it. So I've put together a little mix & match combo, that's a bit on the naughty side, but should create that wonderful idea of suggestion!
Pearl Thong & Bra Set
This pearl thong & bra set is the perfect guilty pleasure, not only is it beautiful in its minimalistic design with strings of pearls & black lace banding but it can be enjoyed by both! It's a lovely sexy little number that can be enjoyed in the bedroom but can be a great teaser if you're brave enough to wear it out and let your partner know about it! It's sure to get the imagination working....

Lace V Crotchless Thong
The idea of wearing a pearl thong maybe isn't everyones cup of tea, but if you're still wanting to be a bit adventurous, I'm putting this lace v crotchless thong into the mix. It's proven to be our most popular crotchless thongs this year so far. Open briefs or crotchless thongs can be great fun, especially for teasing and stimulating the idea of suggestion between the pair of you.

Lace V Crotchless Thong from Moonrise at Midnight
See this 'Lace V Crotchless Thong' in Passion Pink!
I've added this thong because of its lovely black and white lace detailing that will work very well with the chemise beneath, as well as its popularity on Moonrise at Midnight.
We have a lovely little featurette of some of our crotchless thongs and underwear from Moonrise at Midnight on Youtube.
Black Lace Chemise
The final piece of the puzzle to this little guilty pleasure suggestion is this black lace chemise made with versatile stretch lace. It's just a perfect finish to either the pearl thong and bra set or the lace crotchless thong. Black lingerie seems to always suggests seduction & sexy, and adding a bit of see through underwear like this lace chemise turns the heat up just a little bit more!

Dark Nights & Lace Lingerie!

Lace lingerie and underwear is considered very sensuous by most, it's light, pretty, flowing and yet very suggestive by being lightly revealing in some designs. It's a personal favourite, I find it very feminine and usually associate it with special occasions, such as dinner dates, nights out and for adding a touch of romance into the mix.

I always associate lace underwear with weddings and honeymoon lingerie, especially white lace underwear brings with it its' own sense of innocence and purity traditionally connected with wedding lingerie. Lace chemises are very popular for honeymoon lingerie as they are great at showing off the figure as well as the tan!
For the more adventurous ladies who wish to accentuate their figures and show off their curvy hips and midriff then a lace teddy, especially in black is one of the ultimates in sexy lingerie items for the top drawer! Although not thought of as the most practical of ladies underwear to be wearing out, the teddy is great fun for the bedroom and go just perfectly beneath a long nightgown at the end of an evening.
If it's extra shape and definition that you're looking for without the expense of a heavy boned corset then a bustier will bring support to your breasts while at the same time adding some shape and definition to your waistline.

The beauty with a lace bustier is that it goes well with dresses and blouses and bring added confidence with the support it gives to your figure. Do be wary about wearing a lace bustier beneath light chiffon dresses as the lace can easily show through, not too bad if it's a lace overlay. It's amazing how much more confident a bustier can make you feel.

Finally, the addition of lace to a bra set can easily put it into your favourites drawer, the downside being that you wear it all the time! Why shouldn't you? If you like how it looks and the way it makes you feel about yourself then why be constrained by plain, non-patterned bras that just hold and support?
Eleganza Lace Bra Set

Don't forget when you're getting a new bra to get measured or measure yourself to see if your size has changed. I often find it better to work with my own measurements in inches as bras from different manufacturers even though maybe a 34B might measure slightly differently.
Mon Amour Lace Bra

I know what I'm about to say sounds like a bit of a sales pitch, but I'm not the only woman who does this when they absolutely fall in love with a bra set, I buy a second pair of briefs or thong to go with it. It never feels quite right when your underwear doesn't match, especially if you're not the only one who'll be seeing it!

The addition of a pair of black lace hold ups can often add that extra bit of heat to your lingerie ensemble, and if you can find them to match your new sexy lace bra set then you're sure to create the right impression!

Thrills lace and romance for the wedding night.

It is becoming increasingly more common for brides to choose their bridal lingerie to look perfect for their wedding day, and why shouldn't they. You may well ask. To achieve this fabulous look brides are turning to bridal shapewear to achieve maximum toning and slimming effect in specific areas. Although shapewear has evolved quite recently they, often lack the romantic feel from more traditional lace and embroidered wedding lingerie.


You might see some absolutely gorgeous lingerie that you feel would be perfect for your wedding night underwear, However may not complements your gown style. There is no reason why you cant change for your first wedding, In fact many brides do get wedding underwear for the day and something else for the night.

Chemises are great for the night, They're comfortable and depending on what you choose can be revealing,  They can emphasise your figure if you wish and are just great to relax in.

Whatever you choose can also be worn for your honeymoon lingerie to keep that just married feeling alive.

At the end of a wedding day, and after all of the celebrating, dancing and photographs is climbing out of your wedding gown and into in nice flowing bridal babydoll, this can be the perfect way to relax for your wedding night with your newlywed.  We think babydolls are so versatile they can be see-through, revealing, Lacey, classy, elegant or to create the mood you are after.

The other thing in their favour is they can be suited to brides with larger breast sizes and for those who fall into the plus size category.  Flowing babydolls with ruffled hemlines help remove a feeling of self consciousness leading to a more relaxing and sensual mood for the evening.


You can have lots of fun combinations with babydolls as well with so many in white and ivories to make great bridal babydolls to suit that just married feeling. They also go well with your wedding stockings, hold-ups or bridal garter from your wedding day too!

Wedding nightgowns.

Although the wedding night itself carries with it some hype and expectation, quite often after a long day of celebration, as newlyweds you may well be exhausted and simply look forward to some quiet, quality time together.

There's ample wedding nightgowns that are just great for relaxing and unwinding in after a fun and memorable day.


Bridal stockings, hold-ups and wedding garters.
It's quite easy to spend so much time and effort  in finding your perfect wedding gown and bridal lingerie to lose sight of your accessories such as your hosiery and wedding garter. If you're not used to wearing stockings with a  suspender belt or indeed hold-ups then don't make your wedding day the first time to try them out!

Of course you may already have suspendered straps as part of your wedding lingerie if you've opted for a wedding corset or bridal basque.  So if you prefer bridal stockings that's great, just decide on your chosen style whether to have deep lace at the top, back seamed, fishnet or indeed patterned.

It goes without saying to match the colour of your stockings up to that of your dress, be it cream,  ivory for white wedding stockings. Of course not every bride wears a white or ivory wedding dress, so you may wish to opt for a two tone of bi-colour set of wedding stockings.

Wedding hold-ups can be great if you're not a suspenders person and you don't want to the bare legged on the day. It is worth considering if you've got a column on mermaid dress style, whether hold-ups may cause rubbing at the top of your legs especially if they have a wide silicone band.


We always recommend that all our brides carry a spare pair of stockings or hold-ups just in case of any ladders or clicks even just a cheap pair if you gone for a more deluxe  and luxurious first pair.

Wedding Garters
The wedding garter has been a traditional part of the blushing brides wedding lingerie. There are several traditions associated with the bridal Garter, whether the bride wears two garters having one for a 'garter toss',  or the groom has to remove the garter in front of guests, the garter can be a great keepsake of your day.

Don't forget that the garter can also be used as your something blue if you're keeping with the something old, something new tradition. Don't be afraid to drop hints to your bridesmaids you have a garter in mind, they make a nice gift on the wedding day itself!

Moonrise Lingerie are specialists in bridal lingerie and accessories for brides on their wedding day and night.  Every bride who buys their wedding petticoat from August and September receive a £10 gift vouture to spend on their wedding lingerie.

Womens Briefs, G-Strings & Other Things!

Sexy Womens Briefs & Thongs
Our sister online lingerie store Moonrise at Midnight boosts a growing sexy underwear collection from satin corsets, lace babydolls & confidence boosting push up bras. We thought we'd take the opportunity to showcase some of our latest arrivals in womens knickers from women's briefs, sexy boyshorts, thongs and other suggestions to add some spice to your love life!

Women's Briefs & Shorts

Foxi Mini Brief
If you're the type of woman who is simply not a fan of thongs or g-strings and the like, then you shouldn't be constrained by your normal everyday cotton briefs or knickers. More importantly maybe your outfit just won't be suited to thong underwear, fear not, your knickers need still not be dull!

Elia White Briefs - Virtually no VPL!

Floe Lace White Knickers
There's a whole host of mini briefs, midi briefs, maxi briefs and even women's briefs designed that have virtually no dreaded VPL, (visual panty line), that can often show through when your wearing a light summer dress or tighter fitting pair of shorts.

Women's G-Strings
Maracca High Waist G-String
I've always said that g-strings are an acquired taste, you either love 'em or you hate 'em! Not like most of the male population who just love them full stop. For most women who prefer the g- string they'll already know how versatile they can be, going with many different outfit styles from jeans, trouser suits and skirts, short or long as well as many types of occasions from everyday work, dinner dates and special events.

Sartarella Thick Waistband G-String
Although they are good at generally avoiding the VPL, if you choose the wrong size, i.e. too small, the waistband is likely to dig in to your hips, hitch can be quite obvious. There's plenty of choice when it comes to choosing women's g-strings and it's really down to personal preference.

Women's Thongs
Rueda Polka Dot Lace Thong

Although very similar in style and design to g-strings and quite often mistaken between the two, a thong will have more material going from the front to the rear, giving a little more comfort to some, and less chance of chafing. Maybe a consideration in summer months or when going on holiday?
Malaguena Women's Thong

Again, there are many styles to choose from, but with thongs generally having a slightly wider waistband, there's more chance of it showing through your clothes, especially a cotton skirt or trousers or a an elasticated dress.

Crotchless Thongs & Open Front Briefs

Often immediately dismissed by most women, crotchless thongs & open front briefs can be thought of as uncomfortable and slightly too risqué for them. After all, who would wear such a thing and why?

Pink Crotchless V Thong
Pink Lace Crotchless V Thong

Leopard Print Crotchless Thong
Leopard Print Skirted Crotchless Thong
You'd probably be surprised, and if tried, amazed. They're often bought by couples who are in long standing relationships looking to add some fun and excitement to their love life. Even though they can be worn like a normal thong or brief, you can add spice to your foreplay whether in the bedroom or elsewhere.
Plus Size Satin Crotchless Thong
Plus Size Satin Crotchless Thong
Crotchless underwear is readily available in plus size lingerie categories as well, you can choose to hide and tease, tantalise and please and after all men wear crotchless underwear, so why shouldn't women?
