Be a Guest Product Reviewer

Introducing a new feature on our store, which will benefit all customers.  But I need your help to make this work.

Each product on the Store now has an "Add Review" link at the bottom of the page.  When reviews have been written they will display at the bottom of each product page,  with the ability for more to be added.

Invitation  I would love for you to come and add some reviews about any products. 


Whatever comments you write are displayed - there is no way for me to edit them.  (It works very similar to blog post comments).  The only control that I have to is to Accept or Reject.   If I accept, then it's displayed on the page exactly how you typed it, including your spelling mistakes. If I reject then its not displayed. 

Generally your comment would be visible after the site is reloaded overnight. 

The benefit of these reviews is that they are YOUR honest comments, to help other shoppers.  This is all part of my Open and Honest way to conduct business.  If you didn't love something, you get to say so. 

Here is a little guideline etiquette

  • I won't publish any reviews that are abusive, have swearing or harassment
  • I won't publish any reviews that mention other stores, spam, or weblinks
  • If you purchased a product from another store, but it happens to be a product that I also sell, you are welcome to still review the product.
  • Feel free to add comments about my service too
  • If you purchased a bra, it may also be helpful to other shoppers if you mention what size you purchased.
  • If you have a bad review, I hope that you would have given me the opportunity to rectify it before hand, if able.
  • There is no way for me to contact you after you have written the review
  • The "Add Review Page" does ask for your name, but you can use a nickname.  I'm not collecting personal info.
  • Reviews won't show instantly, they'll display after the site is reloaded within 24-48 hours.


So Go Forth and start adding reviews.  Go to the STORE to find the products that you loved.

Feedback from Russia

A customer in Russia sent me this feedback today, what a great way to start the day!


Hello Frances,

Also, I did drop by at your facebook page and your youtube. They are both very informative and interactive.

It's seldom we meet people who are more like friends and less like a person doing her daily job. It's apparent that you enjoy what you do a whole lot.

I gather that the items you sell are of commendable quality and with reasonable prices. I would definitely mention your website at every opportunity.

Please let me know if there are any other padded bras on sale.

Thanks again  NR

Customer Email

It’s so lovely when a customer takes the time to email me some feedback.  This lady sent me a wonderful email, with a quote that I could use on my website too.  


I got two lovely packages this morning - so prettily wrapped! You are amazing, you know that? Your attention to detail, fast service and wanting to help each customer makes you such a wonderful business!!

 "I have just tried on my order and my 2yo walked in and said, 'pretty mummy' so I guess thats approval from her - and they have approval from me too! Hotmilk lingerie is so gorgeous and Breastmates superfast delivery and easy ordering, combined with the wonderful advice and support from Frances makes purchasing a breeze and a pleasure! The suprise gift-wrapping is like sprinkles on the cupcake.... and the whole experience is as sweet and delightful as an icing covered cake too!"


HEHE - you can use that bit above on your site :-)

 The pjs are gorgeous - thank you thank you!! I absoutely love that set, I think Ill be holding onto it for years to come. My poor cami is faded and stretched from washing and pregnancy but the winter pjs will be well looked after and treasured every night I put them on - they are beautiful. I have tried to get away with wearing the L/S top during the day too - it really is stunning!!

Win a New House!!!

Win a House worth over $1 million dollars


Murray and Michelle Smith decided to give away their home because they wanted to find a way to help provide much needed funds for the building of a church and community centre right in the heart of one of the most picturesque small towns in New Zealand — "Cambridge - the town of Trees and Champions".

The Smiths are passionate about making a positive difference to Cambridge and beyond... and that's why they're giving away their MILLION DOLLAR house!

Because they're so passionate about their community they're taking a piece of NZ to the world and want you to be a part of it. is a not-for-profit brand that they have established to showcase to the world how great New Zealand is and why New Zealand communities are a great place to live and work.  All profits from the sale of merchandise are channeled directly back into New Zealand and overseas community projects, starting with the church and community centre in Cambridge.

Every $25 purchase of six photographs becomes your "piece of NZ" to use on your computer as desktop wallpaper, screensavers, clipart... whatever! PLUS it automatically places you in the draw to be the new owner of the Smith's fantastic family home overlooking Lake Karapiro, with a market valuation of over ONE MILLION dollars.

Please have a look at their website, and spend $25 on set of images which then gives you a chance to win this house. 

Then we could almost be neighbours, I live in Cambridge too!!
