Playful Promises is a London-based lingerie brand specializing in whimsical undergarments of many sorts including burlesque, fetish and pin up styles that will tickle the fancy of all bold and sassy fashionistas who live life to the fullest and refuse to take themselves too seriously.
Founded in 2004 by designer Emma Parker, this brand has a little something special for every type of lady, from modern rockabilly lasses to cabaret princesses and everyone in between.
Emma’s obsession with lingerie began her first purchase, at the nubile age of 18, of a tiny, lacy G-string made up of velvet ribbon and tulle frills. Although the purchase significantly set back her entertainment budget, the confidence and thrill she received when wearing it led to a hard-core addiction to lingerie of all kinds. When she could no longer find suitable undergarments to fulfill her fashion needs she was driven to design her own eccentric and exciting assortment of fanciful underclothes that resulted in her brand.
With a huge array of different styles of bras, satin knickers, briefs and G-strings as well as garters and suspenders, Basques and corsets, stockings, sleepwear and swimwear to choose from, visitors to the Playful Promises website can easily spend a significant amount of time simply browsing through their titillating items, and while playful promises’ prices are within a reasonable range, frugal fashionistas will ransack their well-stocked sale section, which is conveniently divided by category.
Playful Promises lingerie collections are available for purchase on their online shop of the same name and on many other online and the brick-and mortar stockists, from internationally famous vendors such as Urban Outfitters and Barney’s NY to smaller boutiques like Lulu and Lush in London, Luxe Lingerie in LA and Lace Stories in Tel Aviv.
Those customers shopping directly from their website must take advantage of their sizing guide, which lists UK, US, French, European and Australian lingerie sizes so everyone all over the world can have a perfect fit. All prices are in British Pounds Sterling, including shipping costs and returns for refund or exchange are available within 14 days of purchase and subject to certain conditions.

Burlesque bombshells and pin up kittens, be warned! This brand is the real deal. Seamed two-toned and Cuban heel stockings in red, black, blue, yellow, white, and nude, retro thongs, long line knickers and briefs, long line, strapless and sheer bras and bralets plus corselets and shape wear, suspender belts and garters; all Kiss Me Deadly lingerie is distinctly original, elaborately detailed and simply gorgeous.
Several miles away from Spanx, their retro-styled Vargas long line girdle shapes exquisitely, does double duty as a garter with six metal straps and is deliciously decorated with large black satin bows. At £50.00, their Cherie Teddy in Peach is high-quality; all satin and lace, in no way innocent yet many leagues distant from trashy. All of their items and collections exude a gritty authenticity with a hint of danger while remaining sensuous, glamorous and slightly intellectual, like a combination of Mata Hari, Grace Kelly and Bettie Page plus a little something extra to make them completely unique.
Kiss Me Deadly lingerie is available for sale on their website as well as in brick-and-mortar shops in the UK, Europe, and the U.S. and Australia such as Lulu and Lush in London, the Pom Pom Parlour in Stockholm, Taboo Tabou in the Chicago and Circa Vintage in Australia, plus, many Internet stockists including FairyGothMother, Gothesque.de, Girdlebound and Panty Salad.
When shopping on their website keep in mind that all of their prices are in British pounds sterling and will include applicable sales taxes. Kiss Me Deadly accepts Visa, MasterCard and Solo cards and PayPal in some cases. Always available by phone for questions or orders on the phone, they ship internationally at £2.00 within the UK and £7.00 everywhere else. They accept returns with certain limitations and with individual permission via e-mail within two weeks of product receipt.
