Note: These pajamas were purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purposes of review. All opinions are my own. In all honesty, silk pajamas were never really something I wanted. It goes without saying I’m a fan of silk: no other fabric quite compares to its flow, sheen and lustre. A good quality silk is the epitome of luxury.

Loveday London made a major splash when it first launched in 2014. From their debut collection, the brand’s aesthetic was developed and iconic.

Launched in 2012, the brand now has an impressive range of stockists (including Net-A-Porter, Saks & Selfridges) and intends to open a physical store this year, presumably in the USA.
Atusko Kudo is one of the best known names in latex fashion. You could certainly argue she’s one of the designers responsible for bridging the divide between latex as fetishwear and latex as mainstream fashion. She’s dressed countless celebrities (including Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian) and is stocked by some of the most prestigious luxury retailers in the world.

Whilst I’m hesitant to claim the brand invented it, they’re almost certainly responsible for driving it to such widespread and recent popularity. Skivvies By For Love & Lemons has certainly capitalised on the tattoo lace trend. The bulk of the brand’s designs utilise the lace appliqué mesh technique with various strappy attachments.
