In it he talks about how women should embrace their bodies, how important it is to understand your body shape and to know what clothing styles best suit your look. He says:
“Understand that your body belongs to you and you should treat it with the upmost respect. Clothing and accessories and all the stuff that goes on top of your body means nothing unless you know your body.”
Gok also gives some top tips on buying swimwear and what style of swimwear best suits each body shape. And highlights some of this season’s biggest fashion trends, as well as saying:
“Dive into your wardrobe…There will be something hidden in there! Keep it basic, and make sure it reflects your mood.”
We love Gok’s fashion tips - make sure you take a look at the entire interview, it’s a great read!
Possibly our favourite from the new Gok Wan lingerie collection for Simply Yours are his Cherry Blossom lines, featuring a divinely delicate satin print.
Sheer mesh panels add sex appeal to the sides of the bodyshaper and the back of the briefs, whilst luxurious two-tone lace trims the top of the cups and the briefs for a look that’s so fresh and feminine you’ll feel like Spring has sprung even in the depths of winter!
In Japan the cherry blossom (sakura) symbolises the fleetingness of life due to the breathtaking beauty of the blossoms that flourish all at once and then are gone. We’re sure that whenever you wear this cherry blossom lingerie you’ll be inspired to live every moment to the full. And look gorgeous whilst doing it of course!
In it Gok talks openly about everything from fame and family to the stress and insecurity that he still sometimes feels, despite all the wonderful work he does to make others feel good about themselves.
He says that on screen, he is ‘a magnified version’ of who he is, and that what he’s been through himself helps him to help others with their own personal battles.
Gok recognises the importance of his break-through series ‘How to Look Good Naked’ and the impact it had:
‘It came at a time when women needed to find a voice. Forget the fashion bits, forget it was presented by a gay guy - which it probably shouldn’t have been, though whether we like it or not a gay man can get something out of a woman that a straight man, or another woman, couldn’t. It was just about that moment when every woman thought, “I am allowed to feel this.” It gave this amazing sense of community.’
Curvy Australian model Teer Wayde got in touch with Simply Yours to say she loved the Gok Wan collection and we thought she would look rather fabulous in it! So we sent her a few pieces and she did a photoshoot for us. Turns out - we were right!
Take a look…

Not long ago we featured Gok’s luscious lingerie line, which consists of a retro look long-line bra and curve-loving high waisted briefs. Well, the lovely Lou of Lou Blogs has reviewed it, and (naturally) she loves it!
She took a few snaps of it:
Here are a few snippets from her review:
The bra is really comfortable on and looks great
I love knickers like this. Big Bridget Jones pants, I know others might prefer little skimpy items but I like a bit of security in my underwear!
The items are true to size and I just bought my regular sizes and they fit great, both knickers and bra look good on and feel good on and what woman doesn’t like that feeling?
To read the full review head on over to Lou’s blog!
…what an amazing purchase! The support I am feeling is absolutely immense - support through my back which is helped by the three hook closure and my shoulder straps then add support, but aren’t relied upon. The bra’s material is structured, but also has the softness you need to feel comfort.
Quick quote from Lauren about the Banger Booster Bra:
This is hands down my favourite Gok bra. I bought it shortly after the mesh bra. The first time I tried it oon, I looked down and cried, “JESUS CHRIST, I HAVE BOOBS!”. This one really isn’t for the faint hearted – it is basically a Wonderbra in a much larger size range, complete with “Gok Cookies” to give you an extra boost. I absolutely love it, and am steadily buying one in every colour!
