Celebrity lingerie designer Lorna Drew has revealed that Kate Middleton is a fan of her products.
Lorna Drew, who has dressed the likes of Jessica Simpson, Imogen Thomas, Una Healy and Fearne Cotton during their pregnancies, sent Kate Middleton some satin maternity lingerie – and was elated to hear from Kate’s people that she was “delighted” with the garments.
Kate Middleton, 31, is a fan of the Alexa Blue Satin bra and matching briefs by the designer, who is based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
The response from the Duchess of Cambridge was a lovely “thank you for the thoughtful gift”.
Lorna Drew, the MD of Lorna Drew Nursing Lingerie said: “I know Kate would be feeling pretty dreadful and thought that she could do with special gift, as nothing makes you feel great like beautiful lingerie, so we sent her some!”
Lorna Drew had met Kate Middleton back in 2008 before her marriage to Prince William.
She added: “Kate’s style is very elegant, she always looks feminine and chic so I knew she would love our nursing bras and knickers.
“I was delighted to bring a smile to Kate’s face after a difficult start to her pregnancy.”
Speaking to the Huffington Post, who revealed Kate Middleton’s lingerie secrets, Lorna Drew said: “I couldn’t believe the response we got when we sent Kate the underwear. We actually received an email back from Kate’s office saying she was <<delighted>> with it.
“It’s fantastic as the style is elegant and so perfect for Kate.
“Maternity underwear doesn’t have to be frumpy.”
Lorna Drew’s website states: “This beautiful satin nursing bra holds and supports to give amazing shape and lift while Brazilian cut briefs give a fashion edge to this design.
“The stunning color blocking in silky soft satin looks as good as it feels to wear. Smooth elastic strapping frames the bust and gold adjusters add the finishing touch to this uniquely stylish design.”
Lorna Drew, who aims her lingerie at “savvy yummy mummies”, believes that the pregnant silhouette is something to embrace, so designs all her briefs to sit discreetly under a woman’s bump.
