One of the Most Popular Items on This Lingerie Site Isn't What You'd Expect

Founded by Kirstie Clements and Lisa Hilli, Porte-à-Vie is a website selling a selection of high-quality, globally curated lingerie. Selling everything from lacy bras to silk slips, the site has something to suit every taste. Not to mention, the wide array of designers listed means that Porte-à-Vie has greater variety than you would find if you were to shop only one brand.

To get some further insight about the online shop, and which products are their most popular, we spoke to Porte-à-Vie’s founders.  

If you don’t where to start, Cosabella (the best-selling brand on the site) would be a good place. In mostly lacy designs, the brand has a wide selection including everything from dainty bralettes to fancy eye masks. Another fan favourite is the Australian brand, Desvalido. And we must admit, the luxe silk sets are fit for a princess.

However, one thing in particular stood out to us: “The Porte-à-Vie customer is particularly fond of robes”, the founders shared. “An expertly curated selection of luxurious silks, the flattering and forgiving robes and slips available at are a favourite for those buying gifts for a loved one.” And we can see why. While fancy pyjamas aren’t always a top-priority when shopping for yourself, if you’re looking for a splurge to treat yourself, a fancy silk robe seems like a great option.
