5 Indie Lingerie Brands to Follow on Instagram

I'd like to think everyone has one vice. Minimum. For some it's going to be shoes, others, it's going to be records. For me? It's always been buying some kick ass lingerie. From those indie darlings to some good old fashioned Agent.P, there's nothing I'd rather spend my money on. Instagram is a lingerie lovers dream - with some tremendously beautiful brands out there just waiting to be discovered. So whether you rep for the itty bitty titty committee or got them heavy boobs, here are some of my favourite indie lingerie brands you're going to want to invite in to your wardrobe/life.

Waking Up With Venus

A mix of dark romantic florals and supper femme frilly sets, London based Waking up With Venus is a real delight. Made to order in the U.K means that they can (in theory) do your size. I picked up a sweet little set for £35 as a gift to me, from me, and considering I'm an F cup and this had ZERO wiring, I was dubious to how supportive this was going to be. Look, real talk, you're not going to want to go for a run in this if you've got any kind of titty going on (that's what sports bras are for boo) but I was pleasantly surprised how super comfortable and well fitted this baby was. Expect around 4 weeks for delivery, but the sets are cute as hell and well worth the wait.

Playful Promises

Flirty, dirty and designed for your inner femme fatale Playful Promises is the most diverse brand for sizing here. With cups in A-G, back sizes 28-42, this brand is about looking fierce as fuck at any size and feeling awesome in cute retro inspired lingerie. Bras come in between around £25-£50 and veer towards a classic pin up vibe, while playing with contemporary cuts. It's fun and sexy, mixing luxe satin jewel tones with mesh detailing, cut outs and a real sense of play.


Bluebella evoke an ethos I can easily get behind. Underwear that's designed to be seen - because why save good lingerie for special occasions? It's more fashion focused with a mix of soft gossamer mesh, romantic pastels, directional strapping and peekaboo detailing. With many styles going up to a G cup, they are designing provocative, stylised lingerie that'll have you owning the shit out of your sexuality and feeling like a smoking hottie.

Not your everyday lingerie brand (and I use the term lingerie loosely.) This again is the kind of underwear designed to be seen.  Taking design cues from fetish, retro and Japanease street style, Creepyyeha juxtaposes dark and edgy cuts and materials with soft uber femme details. Handmade in Queens, New York - Creepyyeha makes awesome harnesses, belts, bras and chokers in red, lavender, black and white with gorgeous gold hardware.  She's garnered a huge following among designers, stylists and performers and count Violet Chachki and FKA Twigs among her fans.  


With mix and match sizing and bras from A-DD, this affordable lingerie brand has the perfect romantic boudoir feel. Coming it at around £28, they have a spectacular blend of sheers, dark florals and lace. It's light, elegant and contemporary with a really effortless low key sexiness to the designs.

If you're looking to treat yo'self, one of these beauties should surely scratch your itch. All I can say is thank fuck for Instagram.
