I’ve mentioned the issue of lingerie companies claiming that certain hosiery designs are “exclusive” to them or “made” by them or any other adjective which conveys the notion that your company had a much greater hand in creating this particular nylon than it has. While I understand it’s marketing, I also believe it’s dishonest,deceitful, and takes advantage of your less lingerie savvy clients who may not know, for example, that […]

I wear a lot of lingerie, and I don’t always have the time to give every single bra, panty, or pair of stockings a long and detailed review. So I’m going to try something just a little bit different…the mini-review. Hopefully, this will turn into a regular feature where I talk about several different items in the same space I’d normally discuss one. The mini-reviews won’t replace the more thorough […]

I’ve since discovered that the French lingerie retailer, Lolie Belle, is selling twenty different varieties of Love Me hosiery, including the following gems: I’m pretty sure the prices have been marked up significantly, and shipping to the United States […]

While browsing Vanity Fair magazine’s website, I stumbled upon a photoset titled “The Vanities Girls.” Since 1992, the Vanities section has been used to showcase a “promising young star.” In September 2006, Vanity Fair re-vamped the format and began shooting the up and coming young actresses in pin-up style. I’m sure you can appreciate this change as much as I do.

They say you never get over your first love and, in my case, when it comes to garter belts, that has been absolutely true. My all-time favorite piece of lingerie is still my Retro Lingerie vintage reproduction black satin/white lace six garter belt from Babygirl Boutique. It’s a really well-made belt and every part is incredibly soft to the touch, including the lace panel and the straps. The garters are […]

For anyone just tuning in, I’m currently in the process of moving to Seattle (yay!). While I’m super-excited, I’m also super-busy. I don’t want to put my blog on hold for the next few weeks, so I’m going to have to be a bit more creative with my posts. Usually, when I write a review, I make every effort to research the product meticulously beforehand. However, due to time constraints, […]
