Designer lingerie is an investment that’s so much more than just function; if you’re wearing designer lingerie that you love it can have an amazing effect on how you feel. The confidence that can come from wearing couture lingerie can extend into other aspects of your life, including your allure. When you feel good, you look good - that's what designer is all about.
We all are familiar with women’s designer labels: designer clothes, designer handbags, designer jewellery sets and even designer sunglasses for women can be found in women’s stores in every country. What about women’s designer underwear though? Although an often neglected part of the designer fashion world, women’s designer underwear is an affordable way of bagging a designer label for many women. What’s more, designer lingerie brands abound and bras and knickers are the garments that we wear most so surely we deserve the best of couture lingerie designs next to our skin in that case? At S&M we showcase the best women’s designer underwear brands so you can select from our choice of top women’s designer underwear ranges from around the world. Our Design house brands stand out from the masses for three main reasons: unparalleled designer quality, the finest designer fabrics and meticulous designer detailing - all combined to reinvigorate underwear design to create something that’s more than just designer lingerie – it’s a work of art to adorn your body.
Read our tips below to decorate your décolletage and get ready to turn heads in exclusive designer lingerie from S&M!
How to make your outside as magnificent as your insides
1: Become a mistress of invention with couture lingerie
Designed and tailored to the individual, couture lingerie is a personal, private and intimate experience in which a woman can indulge in luxury. Couture lingerie has always been about heightening the senses, through sumptuous materials, innovative design, and the finest craftsmanship. Unlike off- the-peg underwear, couture lingerie takes things one step further and elevates the buying experience, giving you a sense of owning an exclusive lingerie piece, that isn’t easily found.
Commissioning a custom made, designer lingerie set allows you to highlight your personal style and bring individuality to your intimates drawer, giving you a truly unique aesthetic. At Sebastian and Millicent, we offer a bespoke and couture lingerie service, in conjunction with a team of up and coming designer lingerie labels.
We’d like to think that couture lingerie is a treat every lingerie addict can afford at least once in their life, and our range of couture lingerie design services enables you to indulge in designer lingerie whether that’s just a little, or a lot! Choose from our bespoke options:

2: Did you know exclusivity is an addiction?
There’s a rare thrill in owning and wearing an exclusive lingerie set that very few other people in the entire world have access to. Like painting the walls of your home or changing your bedroom pillows, the addition of a new and exclusive item of women’s designer underwear lets you experience the excitement of self-reinvention.
Choosing designer lingerie for yourself means recognising and embracing your own tastes, not your partner’s. Whilst you may wear more classic pieces on a date, shopping exclusively for yourself lets you tap into your inner fashionista: instead of lace and silk, pick up exclusive lingerie in bright colours or designer prints and try them for size.
There are so many designs and colours to choose from that buying exclusive designer lingerie is a fun experience as you discover which styles best flatter and fit your body. Modern women’s designer underwear features stunning, delicate fabrics and pioneering new methods of creation that support your bust, show off your curves and make you look anything but ordinary – you’ll never find a department store brand using the designer techniques found within our Design House!
Whether it’s a French, British, Italian or Australian designer brand, each exclusive designer label has its own unique style. Lingerie sets ‘UK style’ are often quirky, funky and feminine. Our UK designers create underwear sets from the finest silks and laces and add a chunk of attitude to every set they make! Lingerie sets ‘UK style’ are focused on a flawless and, shall we say, ‘uplifting’ fit. French style designer underwear often boasts a lighter fit and a more natural shape, and in Italy anything designer goes! So whether you favour UK style lingerie or the French classics, designer lingerie gives you option to choose.
3: Consider designer lingerie sets for those days when you just need to match your outfit to your shoes, lipstick, bag…
Do you never set foot outside the house without coordinating your designer outfit? Then you know where we’re coming from. There’s really no question that wearing a matching designer lingerie set feels sexier than mismatched underwear, and as Christian Dior said: ‘without foundation, there can be no fashion.’
Just like the time and investment you put into buying that perfect pair of jeans, apply that to your designer lingerie - take the time to get professionally fitted and work with your S&M consultant to try out different designer bra and knicker styles so that you can learn what works for your shape and which couture brand makes you feel your very best. Since no one sees it, matching underwear sets will be your best kept secret; there’s something really indulgent about going into work and knowing you’re wearing an exclusive pair of knickers under your skirt or trousers that makes you feel confident and ready to take on the day. You can also embrace slips, pyjamas, cami sets, rompers and robes as an extension to your everyday wardrobe that give a luxurious twist to lounging around.
What’s more, whilst the phrase ‘designer lingerie’ may conjure up images of a Parisian atelier, some of the most decadent and exclusive styles at Sebastian and Millicent are UK brands made right here in London, one of the four fashion capitals of the world. Many graduates from UK lingerie schools are pushing boundaries and changing the way women’s underwear and design is perceived in a way that puts UK lingerie on the map and puts fashion on a par with function. As a UK company, we are proud to champion these UK designers.
4: How will you know your designer underwear fits?
When it comes to designer lingerie, there are two rules to remember: all women are sexy and beautiful, and all women deserve to have exclusive lingerie that gives them that confidence. Choosing your own vision of sexiness means confidently abandoning the body standards that society equates with sex appeal. Ultimately, feeling like a beautiful woman in designer lingerie isn’t about having the body of a Victoria's Secret model; it’s about making the body you have feel as beautiful as you want.
With exclusive lingerie, you need to remember that it’s not something you wear just in the bedroom, it’s something you wear every day. This means the right fit is essential to feeling beautiful and confident. If you’re not wearing a well-designed bra with a perfect fit, the rest of your outfit is not going to hang properly: you won’t hold yourself properly, will be slightly hunched and may feel aches and pains in your neck, shoulders, back and head. You may even suffer from the universal women’s nightmare - the four boob effect!
Since women’s shapes differ, the most powerful yet mysterious item of underwear - the bra - can be difficult to fit universally and can be frustrating if you vary in bra size depending on which designer lingerie brand you choose. This is why Sebastian and Millicent have spent so much time designing fitting services to work with you to ensure that your bra is like a second skin.
We offer private appointments for bra fittings either face to face, via Skype or phone, a DIY fitting technique with a handy bra size calculator and brand fit comparison videos so that you can get to know your new bra before it arrives. Our at-home-at-work consultations and exclusive bra fitting parties are an excellent choice if you prefer to indulge in our full styling and fitting services, or would like bespoke or couture lingerie sets made to measure. These appointment-only fitting services allow us to fit you on a private and personal basis, giving you the freedom and confidence to shop knowing that your new lingerie sets will combine the best of all worlds fit, function, style and seduction!
So go on, give it a go - for an exclusive lingerie treat and the ultimate couture lingerie experience, treat yourself today to the best of our designer lingerie
