Back in June, Toots & Booty decided to embark on the sexy, scantily clad mission of shooting some imagery for our humble little blog. This is partly because we were sick of being faceless bloggers but also because, lingerie is made to be seen right? We just don't think it would be fair to parade images of ladies in their smalls around the place without getting involved! So this is us in all our scant glory - Toots is the blondie, Booty is the one with the irrationally large bottom! And this is what we wore...

|Bra by La Senza, Briefs by Ann Summers and Waist Cincher by What Katie Did|
A huge mixture of brands here! This bra from La Senza is incredibly comfortable, and I absolutely love it's ribbon straps and peach satin and black panels. These knickers are a perfect match for them which it's exact same peach satin colour with black trimmings. This waist cincher by What Katie Did finishes this off fantastically with it's beautifully form-fitting shape and sturdy tummy-tucking capabilities!

Booty: Corset knicker by Kiss Me Deadly, vintage Leather Bra and IntravenousX Suspender
Peach may be classic but kink is fabulous. Here we mixed leathers and straps with buckles and a whole lotta black! (Everyone knows black lingerie is bad girl lingerie, right?) We'd very much like to see Christian Grey try to cross us...
Toots wore the Dita bra by Ann Summers, which clasps up at the front and laces up at the back - perfect aesthetically but when you're in an interview and your bra pops open it is not good! I love this leather suspender belt, although not entirely functional due to it having no give whatsoever, it looks awesome with lingerie or used as outerwear. I'm currently making new and improved versions of this to be sold soon!
Booty wore the Eliza Cincher Brief by Kiss Me Deadly which, in true KMD style, is high-waisted and features an awesome hook-and-eye fastening on the front. This is teamed with a latex suspender by IntravenousX and a leather bra from Rokit Vintage.

|Bordelle Bra and Topshop briefs|
And...PINK. So Toots & Booty have always been avid lingerie fans but this blog has really developed our lingerie love into full-blown-freaky-knicker obsession. This means that Booty has traversed from a "black, black and more black" girl to wanting ALL the lingerie in ALL the colours. This is Booty's most eye-wateringly colourful possession and it is also a dear favourite - the Isabella Non-Padded bra by Myla. While no longer available in this colour, it's still a beautiful shape with scooped sides and a dainty lace cup.
I think I was close to tears as I bought this bra for only £30! This is the Infragante soft cup bra by Bordelle and it's absolutely perfect. I love it's bright pink silk with the mesh cups, brought together with Bordelle's signature attention to detail, the gold loops.
Forget everything you know about vampiric femme fatales because these two sets are perfect for man-eaters. Whether it's the archetypal deep-red of an anti-heroine or a sheer sparkle of a dangerous mermaid, these are bound to lead you down in the depth's of the ocean if you're not careful...
|Bra and briefs by Topshop|
Waving the flag for high street lingerie that I so rave on all the time! This beautiful Topshop set caught my eye with it's Oxblood satin and black lace trimming. I love long-line bralet's and this one is perfect to wear with a pencil skirt and some killer heels.
So Booty clearly has no shame... hence the see-through Myla bra and choosing a Fleur of England set that may as well be made out of cling film for all the modesty it provides for her first set of the day's shooting. Made out of Italian Chantilly lace with silver bits woven through it, the "All That Glitters" balcony bra and shortie are incredibly racy pieces. But mmmh, Italian Chantilly lace...
When I first put these on I thought to myself "Kiss Me Deadly, you are genius!". These big knickers are incredible, giving you everything your bottom half needs! It lengthens your legs with it's high-cut thighs, lifts up your bum with it's fancy mesh power-net, and makes your waist and tummy so teeny-tiny. So I can now conclude that if you want to be bootylicious all you need is Kiss Me Deadly's Vargas Panty Girdle.
At the beginning, to me (Toots) the thought of strutting about in my undercrackers made me feel incredibly nervous! However, the entire experience was so fun, liberating and I won't forget it any time soon, and above all I now have photos of myself in my cutest underwear to show off! Don't get me wrong, I'm no model but I'm proud to have had the confidence to have these photos taken, let alone put online for the world to see! So if you're a lingerie lover, pick out your best sets, get hold of a photographer and work it baby because you're fabulous and so are your knickers!
