Love Bomb: Kiss Me Deadly

Kiss Me Deadly is perhaps the one brand in the Love Bomb promotion that is most often linked with Playful Promises. And it’s no wonder, we share stands (and models) at tradeshows and some of our knickers have even featured in their lookbooks. In fact many of our sets match well or can be worn with Kiss Me Deadly pieces, such as girdles. Perhaps this is because we have a similar ethos and inspirations; however, our customers are usually quite different.


Founded by Catherine, the lady with many, MANY stockings and not enough matching lingerie with which to hold them up, Kiss Me Deadly has become known for its gorgeous 6 strap suspender belts. Also inspired by vintage lingerie, and the era of the classic femme fatale, the brand is often falsely compared to What Katie Did. Although both brands take inspiration from the 40s and 50s, WKD is on a mission to recreate authentic vintage styles, rather than Kiss Me Deadly’s homage to this glamorous era.


Perhaps the most recognisable thing about Kiss Me Deadly is Catherine herself; unique and extravagant, just how we like ‘em. She is known for her love of fancy leggings and underwear as outerwear ;) She makes her fans feel special not through freebies but by chatting freely on her facebook and blog about subjects that other brands might not wish to tackle!



Fifi Brief 

Green is definitely top of my list of colours, and unfortunately it just isn’t a colour you see often in lingerie! I love the retro look of the Fifi brief, plus you can rarely go wrong with a good high waist.


Vargas Longline Girdle

One of the classic Kiss Me Deadly items is her gorgeous Vargas girdle. A must-have for any Burlesque vixen, it not only looks sultry and seductive but it also shapes and flattens – hooray!



Kiss Me Deadly will be giving away a set of Fifi to a lucky winner picked from those that comment on facebook, twitter or their blog. Plus a £100 lingerie voucher will be winging it’s way to someone picked from the mailing list!
