mish

Independent lingerie specialist Mish has been nominated for 3 prestigious awards this season, including Stars Underlines Best Shop Awards, the Western Morning News Business Awards  and UK Lingerie Awards. The Mish team are known for their brilliant customer service as well as holding an extensive collection of on-trend lingerie and swimwear going up to a JJ cup, allowing women to look beautiful with all the support they require.

“It’s such a privilege to be nominated for all 3 awards. It’s already been such a great year for Mish, and a win from any of these would be a brilliant way to top it all off! We’ve been nominated for the Stars Underlines Awards a couple of times before, so we’ve got our fingers crossed that this will be our year,” said owner Michele Poynter.
