Sorry to disappoint you, but I really don't have any dark secrets to reveal. But I have a couple of things I want to share with you. This first "secret" is something we've been keeping since the Moda in February. It's Scantilly that's launching in October. It's the naughty sister of Curvy Kate (a sub-brand for CK) bringing us curvy girls a bit more erotic and wilder options. (You'll find both CK and Scantilly on Twitter and Instagram if you want to follow these cuties.) The first season of Scantilly will brind us sheer and silky materials, straps and bows and surprising cuts. And I welcome these with excitement as this type of lingerie is really hard to find in larger cups.
The first season of Scantilly is estimated to launch in October and of course we've made our reservations so we will be stocking both these styles: All Wrapped Up which is a bit more basic/every day style with a plunge style bra with a mini brief. The thing with the set is the scarf which you can tie either with the bra or the brief or use it for something else... And Peek-a-boo is a bit more tempting and daring. The bra looks as you have two bras together: the sheer balconnet part of the "double layer bra" is a really great shape and gives nice uplift and the quarter cup layer on top of it adds that little something to give it an alluring finish. I'm not sure which one I'd be choosing myself... On the other hand the AWU is very versatile and could wear it anywhere, but on the other hand the Peek-a-boo is something I don't have, but I could see myself wearing.

And the other thing I promised to share with you is that we've just started co-operation with polish brand Samanta, which you might have already seen on 2 cakes on a plate on the Sunday with Samanta series on which the sweet miss Sophie has reviewed some of the Samanta sets. All Samanta products are designed and made in Poland and in EU. I know, we were a bit boring and decided to start with two black continuity ranges, but almost the whole AW15 collection was pre-sold earlier this year, so we were too late for that, and after all, finnish ladies seem to love black, so these are quite foolproof choises for us. We ended up with Tritonia A470, which is a smooth t-shirt bra and we'll also be stocking a basic brief for the range, and Kerk A211 which is made with both lace and knits and we'll be offering the boxer brief pictured and a thong to go with the bra.

And one more thing which happened just today. And that is a confirmed delivery of the continuity range Marcie in black in a few weeks! I know a lot of you have been waiting for this for ages and Marcie was supposed to arrive earlier in the spring already, but then it was cancelled by Panache due to some production issues and rescheduled to November. But today I got happy news from Panache that this is already at their warehouse and they are currently packing our order and it should be ready for despatch sometime next week, meaning it should be at our warehouse in Oulu by the end of the month. Isn't that just the best news!
