Love Bomb: Candy Baker

Being a lingerie designer often creates the assumption that I sit around in girdles and fully fashioned stockings all day. If only this was the norm, but in my busy lifestyle I often have to make sacrifices, and dare I say it, jeans are sometimes put into play.


This is where Candy Baker and her glittering hosiery promises to be the salvation of the working woman!  The perfect accompaniment to throw on with a little black dress, these hosiery designs are great for a range of situations when you just can’t be bothered fiddling with straps, without compromising on sexiness.


Inspired by the lost glamour of the 1920s and 30s, each pair features a little sparkle to ensure you stand out from the crowd, a perfect gift or tempting indulgence!



True to their inspiration, the newest Candy Baker collection for 2012/13 is the Art Deco Collection, which features some beautiful deco patterns. I can just see this gorgeous Gallium print teamed with a fringe flapper dress for a night on the town!


The Back Seam

One of my favourite picks from the Classic Crystal Collection (which is available now, full of designs inspired by the glitz and glamour of broadway), is the stunning Back Seam. I love seamed stockings and these just add a new level of sparkle to a retro staple.


Keep your eyes peeled on Candy Baker's site and their facebook page for their Lovebomb giveaway, where they will be giving away one S/M and one M/L Classic Crystal Backseam!
