I have a confession to make. I’m a fashion designer with a phobia of sewing machines. Sewing is a perfectionist’s idea of hell.
Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do. The first spark of inspiration is exhilarating. Design is fun. Pattern drafting is neat and precise. Sewing, on the other hand, is MESSY. Seams go wobbly, fabrics pucker, threads break…
Nothing would ever make me go near a sewing machine. Nothing except this idea I have… The kind of idea that’s as pervasive as fantasies about an ex-lover you know you shouldn’t be thinking about, yet there you are, in the middle of the night, full of yearning and unable to sleep.
So this is where I’m at. I’m really doing this. I’m launching a sex-positive lingerie brand that’s going to honour the force of nature that is female sensuality, respecting the natural curves of the female form and letting the body breathe. I’ll pour the profits into a number of not-so-sexy but important women’s* charities, raising awareness about the issues that are usually hushed or pushed under the rug.
Dainty, cute lingerie with big impact!
We Stand For Comfort
Boys & Candy lingerie is an invitation to slip into a relaxed, flirty state of mind, regardless of your age, shape or background.
We believe that lingerie is a woman’s+ ultimate love letter to herself. It’s a simple and oh-so-playful way to honour her body and her pleasure. It is the first thing she puts on in the morning and the last thing she takes off. It sets the tone for her entire day.
Female-founded in London, UK, we are on a mission to create stunning, well-fitting intimates that are as comfortable as they are indulgent. No more painful band indents, no underwires, no scratchy fabrics. Just beautiful lingerie that loves you back.
We’re here to prove that that you don’t have to be big and strong to make a difference in the world. Instead, our ethos is simple: our products are designed with four tenets in mind, plus as much love as we hope you make in them.
We believe in the healing power of play. Whatever your style, our Mix & Match lingerie collections are carefully designed to help you create a distinctive look that is all yours.
We believe in the importance of taking a deep breath, so we don’t constrict your ribcage with underwires and inflexible bra bands. Instead, our lingerie lets your body breathe.
We believe that less is more. Our sleek and modern lingerie is designed with forget-it’s there-comfort in mind. Where others add excess, we focus on making your body the star of the show.
We believe in love. Our lingerie packs a punch by raising money for important, but often overlooked, women’s+ charities. Every purchase helps a sister gain back her agency and dignity.
