Kaila Methven's guide to buying lingerie
Dressing some of today's sexiest stars – including Demi Lovato, Katherine McPhee, and the Kardashians – designer Kaila Methven gives her unique take on buying lingerie...
Lingerie is almost like a costume: the moment you put it on, your sensuality awakens. You’re not the same person you were five minutes ago in jeans and a T-shirt.
I always say to my clients: leave it on as long as you can, tease him – and remember who’s in control in and out of the bedroom.
Here are some of my top tips for buying her the perfect lingerie...
Get in the mood
Kick the night off with a bottle of Dom Perignon – and match it with Madame Methven’s Champagne chantilly-lace and silk bra and thong.
Let her take control
Make her feel like the sexy dominatrix: buy her the twin set with a matching whip and let her take charge in the bedroom. Straps are very in, too, right now: everything buckled, doubled, more straps and holes.
Don’t just think about the small things
Bodysuits are very happening right now – mainly because people have started wearing them with jeans, suits, and skirts. A Boudoir Bodysuit shows off the gorgeous curves and delicate lines of her body.
Let her put on a show
Add to your bedroom spice with a bosomless lace corset with some luxury nipple tassels for a real show.
A must have accessory is our Queen Victoria Hat to unleash her playful side with a little role playing. The Latrodectus collection features items perfect for roleplay – it’s very theatrical.
Not all lingerie has to be black or red
Beige, yellow, and green are all hitting the market right now. But we don’t necessarily follow fashion. If there’s a fabric I like, I custom design it to my liking; it really doesn’t even occur to me what’s in trend now or not.
At 16 years old, Kaila Methven interned at her first Paris Fashion Show, and went on to earn a Master's Degree from the International Fashion Academy (Paris), completing advanced training at Polymodo in Florence. Methven runs two high-end lingerie brands: Madame Methven and LDKM.
