Summer of Love: Indie Swimwear Giveaway


Yazzmin (and a friend!) wearing our Jungle Twist Bikini 


Some of you may remember the Love Bomb that went off this february and the year before that! No, not a literal love bomb (that could get sticky), but a declaration of love to our fellow independent brands!

The Love Bomb is a celebration of independent lingerie and swimwear designers. Each of the brands taking part in the Love Bomb is run by a handful of people (and in some cases, even one!), standing up against the mega-corporations to bring you innovative, quirky and unique knickers!  

Unlike the big spenders we are in this game for the knickers – like you, we can’t get enough of them! Many a day is spent lusting after other brands’ lacy wonders and structured glories, so we thought what better way to encourage support for indie lingerie than to gather together for a big, sloppy Summer love bomb!

There are 3 gift baskets up for grabsEach giftbasket has a voucher, bikini or swimsuit from each brand, plus eyelashes from Sheeba Raye, as used in the shoot, luxury bath and beauty gifts from Mon Epris and a voucher for vintage designer sunglasses store Lunetier!


We put together a fun shoot with model Yazzmin and John Tyrell, who created these psychadelic, 60′s inspired Summer Of Love illustrations. The amazing makeup was by Cheyenne Raymond and hair by Doubravka Marcinkova!

Yesterday's featured brand was Kiss Me Deadly:

WIN a Hella Bodysuit


Here at Playful Promises we are all for the forever popular underwear as outerwear trend, and nothing lends itself as well to that as a bodysuit!

Our Hella body is designed with that in mind, as it could easily be worn for during the day, during a workout, during a lounge-session or to tantalise in the boudoir. Emma, our designer, even wants to try it out as swimwear, whereas I've already worn it with a sheer cardigan as day wear.



We want to give one lucky PP fan the chance of winning one of these gorgeous block bodies!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post describing how you would style this bodysuit, and for what occasion (the office? A mad shopping spree? Hug time with your cats?)

Our favourite comment will win a Hella bodysuit in your size (available in small, medium or large, see website for sizing details). 

A winner will be picked on Tuesday the 13th August!
