My Lingerie Workshop with Brown Thomas


As stated above, Brown Thomas does indeed love Lingerie… and we LOVE Brown Thomas for Lingerie. They really do deliver the good when it comes to the best of designer brands!

I recently did a lingerie workshop in The Lingerie Rooms on Level 3 in BT. We had the chat about the importance of undergarments – celebrating boobs, bums and all kinds of tums. Undoubtedly, good dressing starts with our underwear drawer and it really is what lies beneath that counts.

Note: how good do those Spanx Moto Leggings make my legs look in the snap above! If you’re thinking about getting a pair of Spanx leggings for yourself, find them here.


Doing our run-through before guests arrived!


There could be no better venue for delving into the under(wear)world. There’s a star-studded line-up when it comes to brands, as well as a heaven-sent team to measure, fit and advise, giving you a bespoke shopping experience.


The beautiful Vivis Black Lace Kimono, €195, above puts me in mind of the underwear as outerwear trend that I’m loving so much. You could pop it over a simple black dress or fitted top and head out for the night looking incredible.


From shapewear to frillies, I spoke about it all! In terms of something a little sexier,  brands like La Perla, Chantelle, Simone Perele and Maison Lejaby Elixir are incredible options. I know the price-tag may seem daunting, but every woman deserves a little La Perla in their underwear drawer!

These are also great choices for bridal undergarments. If you’re a bride-to-be and looking for the perfect piece to sit under the all-important white dress, or something a little daring for the night-of, you’ll find it here.  And appointments for brides and bridal parties are also complimentary.


The red Silk Robe above from Gilda & Pearl by Diane Houston add some sex appeal to the functional flesh coloured Strapless Bra, €75,  from Simone Perele and the Chantelle Irresistible High-Waisted Silhouette Brief, €37!


If you’ve watched me on Celebrity Operation Transformation last month, you’ll know I’m a fan of the Spanx – they’re totally worth getting into all that trouble – and shapewear in general, so I happily recommended labels like Spanx, Wacoal, Triumph and Commando for all body smoothing, figure forming needs!


Loungewear should look as good as it feels comfortable! Obsessed with this DKNY Plaid Sleepshirt, €65, and the wonderfully boyish DKNY Bralette, €39.95, and shorts, €24.25. Flannel is a huge trend right now!


Loungewear is much more on my wavelength at the moment. As I’ve always said, I’m always either completely done up or seriously dressed down. But dressed down doesn’t mean frumpy hoodies and washed-out t-shirts when it comes to Brown Thomas’ philosophy. Think along the lines of Gigi or Kendall kicking about at home. It’s an attractive and annoyingly cool, chillaxed aesthetic. This balance between comfy/sexy has been perfected by brands like UGG Australia, Calvin Klein, DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger.


Hello there Stella McCartney Silk Pyjamas! So cool and comfortable, but always chic.


The same can be said for nightwear. Love Stories, Hanro, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Vivis and Stella McCartney Lingerie are only some of the options available. You could go in and create an entire wardrobe of under-the-sheets attire from the choices in front of you. Comfort is key, but it’s nice to choose something you wouldn’t mind being seen in.

So, if you’re searching for the perfect bra, a framing corset or the coolest, comfiest pair of pyjamas, Brown Thomas is your one-stop shop!
