Asquith Lounge Suit with Maidenform Bra.

Morning my friends.
Hope you are all safe and well.
Been a crazy birthday weekend for me, well actually It's been a crazy week really. 
I had a wonderful day on Saturday and felt truly loved and cherished by everyone.  I had some amazing presents and as always was very spoiled.  Did you see my IG stories?  I had a wonderful dinner from a local restaurant ... Wheelers Oyster Bar that certainly didn't disappoint.  We had a big selection, including Lobster Lasagna, Prawn and Crab tart, Scallops, Crab cakes, Mezze and other delicious fish dishes. This was topped off with a big cake made fresh by Little Berry Bakes - that was stunning too!

If you've seen my Instagram post's recently you may have clocked that I won a Giveway.  I was delighted to win a stylish lounge suit from the super collection of workout & lounge wear.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Pondering the Asquith London website I mused over all the different styles.   The giveaway was for a culotte and top set, but Asquith offered I choose an alternative to the value if I wished.  The full workout sets really took my fancy, but I eventually settled on a midnight blue harmony pants and the  complimentary Be Graceful Batwing in matching midnight blue. 
Quoting from Asquith London they say:

We believe that at the heart of sustainability is getting the most wear from fewer, better quality pieces.  We design our collections so they are functional, versatile and timeless.

This is why it has always been important to us that our clothes work effortlessly with the rest of you everyday wardrobe, as well as for your yoga and Pilates practice.

When we first launched in 2002, active-wear was mostly (and continues to be) made with synthetic, chemical-laden fabrics.  We wanted to create something different, using natural breathable and eco-friendly fabrics.  Pieces that kept you feeling secure on your mat, but you would love wearing everywhere for years to come. 

Everything we design is purposefully multi-functional - so you can enjoy our clothes as much as possible, for as long as possible.

  • Made with sustainable Bamboo Viscose
  • Unrivalled softness and great for sensitive skin
  • Naturally sweat-wicking and breathable
  • From responsibly managed, FSC certified forests
  • Oeko-Tex certified - no nasties in the dyeing process

Relaxing in my two piece when we had better, sunnier weather a little while ago I took full advantage of wearing an equally comfortable wireless bra from the new Maidenform* range.  I wanted something with a little padding - as that is what I would usually opt for and the Semi-Embellished Lift Wireless bra is the perfect option.  It has everything I'm after, soft material, wide straps and the deep moulded cups give enviable comfort - hence the name 'Pure Comfort' ...  Not forgetting it's finished with a subtle and elegant pretty edging.   

The bra gives natural lift from it's comfortable frame and with convertible straps this 'no show under Tees is a winning choice for me.
Available in sizes Medium - 2XL and do fit true to size.  I like to have the three wardrobe staples of black, white & nude in my collection and you're in luck as this comfortable bra comes in two of my favourites ... black and Paris nude.  

Much love and thanks to you all for joining me today, do stop by Asquith London to see there full selection and also why not checkout the underwear from Maidenform too - after all we're all about comfort and style aren't we.
Esther Ruby kindly took these photos - thanks lovely.
Catch you on Thursday for the #LINKUP party.
Bye for now. X

  5. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to proceed to the checkout on [url=]Dimepiece LA store[/url]. I have read in Vanity Fair that the brand was acquired by a UK hedge fund for $50m. I have just bought the Dimepiece Friends Journal from Amazon and totally love it xox Dimepiece
