Vintage inspired lingerie news — lingerie made in the UK

P&P a year in review and a great big THANK YOU!

Posted by philippa Smith on

The end of the year is a great time for reflection but the beginning or January 2020 also sees us celebrating our 5th birthday so this seems like a great time to look back on everything we’ve achieved in the last 12 months before setting our sights on further improvements and fabulous lingerie designs for the following 12 months!

This year we launched our Stocking Subscription club, the first of its kind to delivery you a pair of seamed stockings to your door every single month. The club has been running for around 6 months now and it’s constantly growing in popularity, making the perfect gift or just saving you the hassle of re-ordering stockings yourself. Simply tell us your stockings size and colour preference, or let us sent you a variety and we take care of the rest. Small enough to fit through your letter box too so there’s no need to worry about being in to receive them.

Men’s lingerie guide-when shopping for yourselves

We are so pleased to have such a diverse range of customers at Pip & Pantalaimon. We like to think we’re welcoming and helpful to everyone who reaches out to us for advice and we’re proud to be the lingerie brand of choice for so many of you.

In fact, we now get so many enquiries from men buying lingerie for themselves that it’s about time I put together some helpful information to help you all out.


Sizing and style help

The most common questions we’re asked relate to size and style. Generally speaking, men’s bodies tend to be a different shape to women’s. Women usually have a considerably narrower natural waist than full hip. Whereas the difference can be much more slight with men and it’s common for there to be little or no difference in the natural waist (narrowest part around the waist, usually an inch or so above the belly button) and full hip (widest part around bum).
