How to create the perfect Bridal Trousseau

Dear Brides to be  💕

Struggling with your bridal trousseau? 
Let Tallulah help you!

We know weddings, big or small, are a lot of work.
Found the perfect venue? The perfect flowers? Most of all the perfect dress?
Then you need the perfect lingerie!

Think of it as the foundations. 
Trust us, you don't want to get the wrong foundations for your perfect dress. It's a common mistake to skip the practical underwear and go straight to the honeymoon lingerie.

Not to worry, we've got you covered for both!

Here at Tallulah's we love Bridal fitting and will make sure this day is a treat!
You can also book an appointment to make sure you have our full attention. We recommend coming in at least 6 weeks before the big day so we are able to order things in for you.
Don't forget to bring a picture of the dress and even a swatch of fabric if you have it.

Now let's talk about the essentials.

First things first, the dress!

Is it A-line, mermaid cut, sleeves, no sleeves, halter, sweetheart neckline?
Once we know the shape of your dress and the material, we will find you the perfect solutions for seamless lingerie. If you need a bit of structure, the Dominique basques are a delight.
They come in different lengths depending on the waistline of your dress. Smooth or with lace, and all low back. We also make alterations, so it's perfectly tailored to your needs!
Strapless bras are also a very good option for empress lines or bustier.
This set here from Ivette is a top seller with it's delicate lace appliqué and body contouring knickers.
(suspenders come off on all styles by the way!)


Then comes the knickers. You will be able to chose from a wide selection of brands for seamless, smooth underwear to the more body contouring options. They come in all shapes and styles. 


If you are taking pictures before the big event, you will want a pretty silk slip and delicate robe to get ready in. Nothing prettier than a blush or ivory negligee paired with a lace robe and boudoir mules!

For something new and old, get your pick from one of our vintage lace garters. 
We hand make them and can add a charm of your choosing. 

And now, the Honeymoon lingerie, where all the fun is!
Choose from our wide selection of lush silks and lace items to create a look to remember.
We can also help you select your signature scent with hand bottled perfumes from France.


Ivory is always a beautiful choice for your honeymoon lingerie.
And if you don't own one of our pearl thongs already, now is the perfect occasion!
Ivory silk and pearls is always a good idea, trust us.

If you prefer a bit of colour, add a splash of pink and aqua to your trousseau with this jaw dropping silk slip from Marjolaine's 2018 summer collection. 
Pair it with this cheeky ouvert satin set from Loveday London for maximum effect!


Pop by the Boudoir for inspiration, plenty more in stock!

Lot's of lingerie love.

For a quick story of Simone Perele's legacy, let us take you through the timeline.
Built on the qualities of French style and embraced by women all over the world, Simone Pérèle was created in 1948 by a young, talented and passionate Parisian corset-maker.
She left behind a legacy of elegance, meticulous attention to detail, unparalleled support and a dedicated focus on fit, using the highest quality fabrics designed to embrace all women’s natural curves.

Building on the legacy of the legendary duo of Simone Pérèle and her husband, Wolf, the company has remained in the hands of the family and is now run by Simone's grandchildren.

With some of our Tallulah all time best sellers (which you all probably now very very well) such as Wish, Amour, Delice or the must-have Andora 3D moulded T-shirt bra, Simone Perele is one of the staples of your lingerie drawers.

What's new in the boudoir?

More and more Lingerie goodness of course!

The snow has melted and the first signs of a glorious spring season are here.
Can't get enough of this gorgeous powder pink and periwinkle blue colour palette in our window.
From the sexy sheerness of Mimi Holliday's new Cosmo pop set to the Vivis lace boleros,
Spring 2018 is looking fabulous!

First on our 2018 must have lingerie list, this delicate navy set from Simone Perele.
It's name, Manille Outremer 💙
A perfect classic for those with one too many black sets.
It is elegant and modern with perfectly mastered details on the straps and tulle trimmings.
You can chose between the delicate embroidered tulle half cup or the perfectly shaped padded plunge.
This set comes with a regular or high brief and a brazilian.

Hello lover 💕 Nymphea set with Vivis lace bolero is a  showstopper.
Padded plunge or half cup?

And now, let's talk about this Aubade set you will need in your life!
Nymphea is her name and she is delicious like vanilla ice cream.
The lace is this exquisite blush and ivory palette that we adore.
Nymphea comes in a see-hrough demure half cup with the classic Aubade cut that we all love, and in the padded plunge with exquisite lace overlay.
Beautiful italian brief or thong to match, adorned with lace edging and sexy sheerness.
This is one not to miss!

Powder pink lace set from Wacoal 💕
And don't forget our new silks!

And last but not least, a little teaser from Ginia silks for those of you "underwear as outerwear" enthusiasts. This beautiful colour block camisole comes also in a longer slip dress and more colors.
They make the perfect outfit for any occasion.

Perfect finish to any lingerie set 💘💅
Hope to see you soon in the boudoir lingerie lovers!

Wishing for the perfect Wish-List...

Tis' the season of giving, and everyone loves a giver, make sure your giver is giving just what you want ...

To be sure you receive exactly what you want this Christmas and that the smile you are wearing on the 25th of December is a genuine and bright as that North Star shining in the night sky.

And just like when you choose your chocolates to eat from the Quality street tin you can choose your Christmas present, like the ever so popular 'Purple One'-
Marjoliane do always create beautiful and timeless pieces and this purple silk that is trimmed in delicate black eyelash lace set is just that. The chemise has that beautiful delicate eyelash lace tickling the top and then a deep lace section around the hem, perfect to sneak out under your little black dress over the party season! Then we have the matching robe, I do love a matching robe and slip set, but also this can have a more simple black slip. Imagine waking up and and slowly unwrapping this ensemble, heaven right? Plus mega brownie points for your Santa! To finish the 'Purple One' off I think a pearl thong is needed with matching nipple tassels, perfect stocking fillers.... purple silk with black lace dripping with shiny black beads and our famous pearl thong, just like the purple chocolate has a hazelnut in the the middle, you can have a pearl tickling your middle (clitoris).

My personal favorite (well one of them at least) 'The Red One', dark chocolate ozzing with a soft strawberry creme centre mmmmmmmmmm and our 'Red One' just has to be the Dita Von Tease Red dahlia, also one of my personal favorite's and to say this set is amazing is an understatement. The fit is great, the colour is incredible and perfect for the festive season and even more perfect to be chased around the boudoir in before wearing out for cocktails on New Years Eve, everyone knows one must wear Red on New Years for luck, right?!., available up to a F cup and from a 30” back too. Go on, add it to your wish list and bring out that sexy glamorous retro goddess inside of you.

You could choose 'The Blue One '- blue is such an underrated colour in the Quality sweet tin, coconut, it is like a mini bounty bar. Blue is also understated in the lingerie world. I love blue lingerie and particularly this Eden Chic collection from Simone Perele. Here is the padded plunge but also has the half cup sheer lace cup available up to a G cup, this is another collection from a 30” back too. To finish off the Blue look how about this beautiful blue silk Vivis chemise? If you have had this slip before then you will know the amazing shape of it, and if you haven’t then you need it. For sure you need 'The Blue One'.
A wonderful alternative to the classic black or ivory, a delicate take on colour and a wonderful addition to your lingerie collection.

Then we have 'The Pink One'. Yummy sweet soft but hard fudge. The perfect treat. And this next set really is perfection. It’s actually from the Chantal Thomass Spring Summer 2018 collection and it has been flying out and I mean flying. We have just had a top up delivered so most sizes in stock but it does only go to an E cup and from a 32 back. Imagine opening this package, of course it will be wrapped in a big bow and then you can be wearing your very own bow on Christmas Day. It’s bow-tastic. It’s the pretty perfect pink present. 

The Caramel One and Surely everyone loves caramel. The smooth silky caramel centre encased in milk chocolate just makes me think of this sumptuous caramel silk Christine gown. Now I am sure you have a Christine gown but do you have this colour? Every girl needs a glamour gown, wear it sipping your bucks fizz on Christmas morning or out for dinner for New Years, the perfect Underwear As Outerwear piece. Wear it with your pearl thong or cashmere cardigan, wear it anyway and you will feel a million dollars. This shape is just so perfect if you have a bigger bust, the pleats open up over your bust almost like a hand cupping your breasts, honestly it is incredible and it is a must on your wish list, perhaps add a nice black robe to finish you glam lounging at home look, either the sheer tulle trimmed in silk Dita Von Tease or the silk velvet from Vivis, or a chunky cashmere knit perhaps one from our neighbors Wild Swans (they stock beautiful knits) or we have a Brora in Islington too. 

Next to come out of the chocolate tin is the Honey One, honeycomb to be exact, a bit like a marmite I guess, you either love it or loath it, just like this Aubade lingerie set pictured below. For me this is one of my absolute favorite sets ever ever ever, but I nearly didn’t order it, I couldn’t decide if I loved it or not. When I received the delivery and opened the box it was love at first sight -well second sight as I had seen it 6 months previous when I ordered it! This set is amazing, even if you are not an animal print fan I urge you to try it as it looks totally different on and is stupendous so swing by and try it quick and add it to your list. Comes in 30” backs!

I keep reading that shops are offering free gift wrapping, well in Tallulah it is always free gift wrapping, whether you are buying a gift for someone or the best sort of gift self gifting everything and I mean everything is wrapped for you in plenty of tissue paper and massive satin bows.
By all accounts it is a safe bet that if you swing by the boudoir and create your wish list then send your Santa in you will be sure to get at least something you really really want (and that fits) this Christmas. Ooh and 1 last thing, the perfumes we sell are incredible even if I do say so myself. Perfect unisex or gender neutral as we say nowadays ;-)

Hope to see you over the next week to get your stockings filled! Lots of lingerie love to you and remember....

The boudoir is open everyday until Christmas Eve xxx
