This year sees patriotism going bonkers! We have Jubilee weekend, Euro 2012 and The Olympics over the next few months and we’ll all be flying flags from our pergolas and other exotic garden features.

We’ve put together five great lingerie brands that are made in the UK, some you may have heard of, others you may not, either way explore the styles below.

Also remember the Union Jack bra & knicker sets you see everywhere are probably made in China!!
