Who we are
The brainchild of Emily Bendell, Bluebella was founded with a simple yet profound vision at its core: to deliver luxurious lingerie, underwear, and nightwear to spirited, fashion-forward women. Our brand champions innovation, inclusivity, and exceptional style above all else, redefining sensuality with every new collection.
“To me, lingerie is self-expression of individual style and spirit. The Bluebella woman does not see lingerie as a functional or traditionally sexy purchase to be ‘dressed up in’ for someone else. If the thing we wear closest to our skin is for someone else and not ourselves, what does that tell us about our bodies? I wanted to create a brand and product that was empowered, confident, sassy, contemporary and fashion-focused. We design to make women feel their most fabulous selves!”
Founder and CEO
Our award-winning team takes inspiration from modern lifestyles, fashion trends and the world around us. Each collection we launch has a clear purpose and vision behind it, pushing the boundaries of design with unique fabrics, unusual trims and unforgettable new silhouettes. We are proud to be stocked by some of the UK's and world’s most famous retailers, including Selfridges, Victoria’s Secret, Bloomingdales, Zalando, David Jones and De Bijenkorf.
We are endlessly inspired by the allure of the hidden, the mystery of what lies underneath, and the illusion of nudity just waiting to be found. Our mission is to not only create beautiful designs but also to make them affordable and inclusive. We believe everyone should be able to wear Bluebella and feel empowered as they do so.
For Valentine’s Day 2023, we’ve joined forces with the chief feminist rulebreaker of the British music scene: the incomparable Self Esteem. This boldly empowering campaign is an unapologetic celebration of pure femininity, body positivity, and – most importantly – pleasure.
When it comes to choosing your everyday underwear, comfort often takes precedence over style. Here at Bluebella, we decided you could have both. Cue in the new Everyday collection, full of comfortable and fashion-forward sets designed with the signature Bluebella edge.
Hosiery and Nubian Skin collab
This autumn, we launched a collection of Italian hold-ups, stockings, and tights. Nubian Skin helped us ensure that our hosiery is not only beautiful but also skin-tone inclusive.
Launching our improved size range was a huge step forward for our brand. Most of our designs are now available in 30A-40F and 6-20 ranges, ensuring that the unique Bluebella experience is accessible to even more people.
We are proud to be stocked by many of the world’s leading retailers. Find your local stockist here.
