✨ MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN ✨
Whether you take it seriously or not, you’ve almost certainly heard of astrology. The study of the movements and positions of what are known as “celestial bodies” in the biz (that’s planets and stars to the rest of us), astrology has seen a recent reignition of enthusiasm. Although an ancient practice thought to have originated thousands of years ago in Babylon, you’re now likely to see astrological signs adorning wall art, candles and even socks.

The simplest way to engage with astrology is to know your sun sign, or the sign that matches up with your birthday. There are many layers to astrology, and whilst some use it as a guiding principle for life for the rest of us it can be a lens through which to learn a little bit more about ourselves. We’ve matched up the twelve signs of the zodiac with lingerie
sets based on their key personality traits, and we have it on good authority that your horoscope this month indicates a strong chance of new lingerie…
THE SIGNS AND THEIR LINGERIE
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries are the leaders of the pack. Confident and determined, fire sign Aires can be headstrong and impulsive, diving headfirst into situations like their symbol of the ram. Individualistic Aries is not afraid to strike out on a new path and to learn lessons along the way, making them one of the trend-setters of the zodiac – where Aries leads many are sure to follow! Upbeat and positive, Aries love to live life to the full.
Lingerie Match: Rani Bra and Harness Thong
The perfect directional set for these bold and courageous leaders of the pack.
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
An earth sign represented by the symbol of the bull, Taureans are most at home in luxurious surroundings. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money, Taurus is a sign that requires indulgence. Although most at home in a spa scented with essential oils, Taurus is also a sign that knows how to work hard to achieve their goals. Ambitious, focused and resilient, Taurus is a loyal friend and lover, although they do need to watch out – their steadfast nature can come across as stubborn to those who do not know them well.
Lingerie Match: Atalanta Cami and Trouser Set
This set is pure Taurus, with indulgence, comfort and style working together to create the ideal clothes to relax in.
Gemini ( May 21st to June 20th)
Two for the price of one, Gemini are the twins of the zodiac. Gemini have a bad rep, often being represented as being two-faced when in fact they rarely have hidden agendas. Playful and intellectually curious like all air signs, Gemini are social butterflies that need fluent communication in order to feel happy and fulfilled. Gemini is all about output – they wear their hearts on their sleeves. This can lead to sometimes putting their foot in it, but these twins are so quick moving that they are unlikely to dwell in any embarrassment for long.
Lingerie Match: Lumi in black and ivory
This expressive sign needs a set to match their mood, and what could be better than Lumi in not one but two gorgeous colours?
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
Represented by the crab, Cancers can be perceived as being cold or distant because of their protective shell. It takes time to get to know a Cancer, but when you do you realise that shell hides a genuine compassion, care and sensitivity to their own emotions and those of others. Just don’t be surprised if it takes time to get here! Water sign Cancer is ruled by the moon, which represents comfort, self-care and maternal energies, meaning that Cancers love to create cosy, safe spaces to spend lots of time in. Deeply caring and very loyal, Cancers love and cherish their friends and family.
Lingerie Match: Dahlia Cami and Short Set
Elegant and soft, the Dahlia set perfectly aligns with Cancer’s soft interior and love of home comforts.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Hear me roar! Leos, represented by the lion, love to bask in the spotlight and are known for being theatrical and larger than life. Every Leo thinks of themselves as a celebrity, with the universe revolving around them – fitting, given that Leo is governed by the Sun. Passionate, creative and brave, Leos are loveable and warm until they feel that they might be being overlooked or eclipsed by another’s talents. These big cats’ pride can be their Achilles heel, but if they can keep their egos in check they will continue to develop in courage and confidence as they mature.
Lingerie Match: Ophelia Long Chemise
A show-stopper, the Ophelia is the perfect garment for making an unforgettable entrance.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
The perfectionist of the zodiac, you’re very likely to find a Virgo up to her eyeballs in lists, plans and organisers. Logical, practical, and systematic, Virgos rise to the top through determination and hard work. Like Gemini, Virgo is governed by Mercury, the planet of communication, although with these girls it’s less about output and chat and more about input and processing. A Virgo will think carefully about anything said to her, and will remember the slightest nuance in tone and phrasing. Kind and gentle, Virgos make supportive friends and lovers who will always come up with practical solutions to life’s problems.
Lingerie Match: Marseille Bra, Suspender, and Brief
Perfectly balanced for these meticulous queens, Virgos will love the harmony and style of the Marseille set.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Represented by the scales (the only inanimate object of the zodiac), Libra is all about harmony and balance. Governed by Venus, Librans have a natural eye for high art and elegance – they often make very good designers and stylists. They love to be in relationships, seeking out harmonious and balanced partnerships with people who match their intelligence. Libras need to watch out that their eye for style doesn’t override their need for balance, particularly when it comes to fashionable but perhaps flighty friends and partners. These air signs can struggle with indecision, but if they develop and trust their own intuition, Libras will take on the world with brilliant ideas and social grace.
Lingerie Match: Sandrine Bodysuit
This chic and modern bodysuit is perfect for style-conscious Libra, with a delicate equilibrium between the elements of banding, mesh and embroidery.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
A powerful water sign, Scorpio is the dark horse of the zodiac. Often appearing distant and elusive, Scorpio is in fact highly intuitive and emotional with a real need for physical and spiritual closeness with friends and lovers. Ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs destruction and transformation, this enigmatic sign is ambitious and ruthlessly determined. Scorpios know what they want, and they aren’t afraid to play the long game and work incredibly hard to achieve their goals. Scorpios need to keep their egos in check, as their desire for power and control can become poisonous to themselves and others. It’s when they allow themselves to build trust that these seductive signs really flourish.
Lingerie Match: Nova Bra and Thong
Seductive and beguiling, the Nova Basque is the perfect match for the mysterious Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
Symbolised by the archer, Sagittarius is always on the hunt for something new. These vivacious fire signs love travel and adventure almost as much as they love to tell you about it, lighting up rooms with their (mostly true) stories and infectious laughter. Natural comedians, the Sagittarian needs to be careful not to let their tendency towards bluntness go unchecked: they can come across as arrogant or pretentious, particularly to those who do not know them well. These are the good-time gals of the zodiac, and once a Sagittarius realises commitment to friends and relationships doesn’t have to stunt their freedom they can have the best of both worlds.
Lingerie Match: Bellana Bra, Harness Suspender and Thong
No half measures for Sagittarius, the bold and beautiful Bellana is the ideal match for these astrological adventurers.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
The final earth sign in the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the mythical sea goat, a symbol which explains this sign’s ease in both the material and emotional realms. Capricorns have a strong, unwavering focus and deep reserves of mental strength to help them climb to the highest peaks in life. These tough achievers need to remember that sometimes it isn’t all about getting to the top, and to be compassionate to themselves and others on the journey. Inside every stoical Capricorn is a mischievous party diva – friends of this sign can testify that they come alive on a dancefloor!
Lingerie Match: Rhodes Bra and Brief
Determined and focused Capricorn has a strap in and get the job done mindset, so what better lingerie to compliment this than the directional banding of Rhodes?
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
Often mistaken for a water sign, enigmatic Aquarius is in fact the final air sign of the zodiac. Represented by the mystical water-bearer that brings life to the dry land, Aquarians are the most humanitarian sign of the zodiac. These girls want to change the world, and aren’t afraid to start a few revolutions in the process! These unconventional nonconformists are ruled by Uranus, the planet of innovation, technology and surprising events, which perfectly mirrors the Aquarian’s love of subverting expectations. They can come across as aloof, but don’t be fooled – once you get to know them an Aquarian is a loyal and loving friend and partner who will always fight your corner (or their way to the front of the bar on your birthday).
Lingerie Match: Tao Bodysuit
The gorgeous and unique Tao Bodysuit with its clear strapping is the perfect match for these stylish rebels.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Last but not least we have Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac and the last water sign. Symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions, Pisces is a creative thinker divided between fantasy and reality. Pisces are sensitive and intuitive, with enormous reserves of compassion and dedication that make them beloved by all their many friends and family. Their intuition and artistry enables them to find innovative solutions to problems, although these nimble celestial swimmers need to keep one foot (or fin) firmly on the ground, as they can get swept away by the powerful current of their dreams and imaginations.
Lingerie Match: Carlotta Bra and Thong
The soft rose dust and gently scalloped edge of Carlotta perfectly mirrors the dreamy quality of this water sign.
