We are a huge fan of Gok Wan here on Shoppersbase, and have featured his sell out collections of clothing for Sainsbury’s TU on many occasions. Not that the 39-year-old flamboyant star needs any help. Known as a true champion of women, he is well-loved by the ladies of the UK for giving them back the confidence to look great and get back into the dating scene.
He is also known for his straight talking, which leads us to his latest lingerie collection, and as you would expect, what you see is what you get with Gok, with pieces described as ‘banger boosters’, ‘curve controllers’, ‘divine outline’ and ‘slicker knickers’ all selling well. In fact, the down-to-earth designer’s new lingerie range has been such a massive success that there have been reports that one item of his shapewear is selling every three minutes, and the bestselling item is the £30 Slicker Knicker.
Gok has launched his new shapely range for Simply Be, and it is proving to be one of the brands most successful collaborations. With the Banger Booster Bra at £32, Slicker Knickers at £30, you also get the Pull Me In pants costing £36, the Bombshell Plunge bra at £30, the Curve Controller bodyshaper at £53 and the Divine Outline priced at £45.
The star of the collection is probably the £32 Banger Booster bra, which claims to boost cleavage without digging in and offers a smooth silhouette, and reports state that one is selling every hour in the UK.
Gok describes as ‘glam 50s’ inspired but it is also functional, providing tummy control panels and high-waisted pants with multiway bras, all intended to smooth over and flatter our curves, but in a glamourous and sexy way.
Gok first came to nation’s attention when his Channel 4 series – How To Look Good Naked – aired in 2006 and the award-winning show went on for a further six series. He then hosted three series of Gok’s Fashion Fix with a follow on series called Gok’s Clothes Roadshow; Get The Look For Less. Following this success, he gave lonely women in the UK a style make over in Gok’s Style Secrets.
He has written five books, including his autobiography Through Thick and Thin, and has also explored his take on Chinese cookery, with Gok Cooks Chinese.
And it is not only women that have taken Gok to their hearts, as he has been described as the “… man I’d be most likely to leave my husband for”!
Gok is naturally very pleased about the success of his new collection and in typical Gok style stated: ‘I am thrilled that women up and down the country are embracing their shape and making the most of their bangers. My Banger Booster gives girls the best cleavage and I’m sure guys across the nation are enjoying the benefits too. Go girls!’
Bras are available in sizes from 34A to 46DD and shapewear in sizes 12 to 32.
