I am a huge fan of the pin-up look, and Kiss Me Deadly manages to take vintage silhouettes and update them in a very modern way. The Spring/Summer 2011 range features a brand new bridal […]

I’ve gotten spoiled during my stints in lingerie retailing and no packaged pair of panties from Target will cut it for me! Although I’ve cut down my lingerie hoarding as of late, as a newly engaged lady I’ve given […]

Set just before the devastation and deprivation of World War II, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is not only a entertaining romantic comedy, it’s also an intriguing look at 1930s era fashion. Unlike the 1920s, which emphasized a flat, boyish shilouette, the 1930s welcomed a return to feminine curves. Corset girdles were all the rage, nylon stockings made their debut, and lingerie marketing […]

“85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.” I first heard that statistic five years ago, shortly after Oprah Winfrey dedicated an entire hour-long show to lingerie. One would think that number might have changed since then, but according to Debenham’s latest press release, 85% of the women they surveyed are still wearing the wrong size bra. Call me cynical, but I have a hard time believing that. In […]

As The Original Lingerie Addict ™, my Mom taught me lots of invaluable lessons about lingerie. It was years before I truly appreciated them, but on this Mother’s Day, when I’m 2,650 miles away from home, I want to share a few of them with you. I hope you find them as useful (and enjoyable!) as I have. Did your Mom teach you anything about lingerie? I’d love to hear […]

I openly admit that I’m a bit late to this trend, but after buying my very first pair of mesh leggings a few weeks ago from American Apparel, I’m hooked. Lace and mesh leggings are the perfect Spring fashion staple. Not only do they go with absolutely everything, they help transition your wardrobe from winter to summer, especially if it’s still a little chilly […]

We’re closing Pin-Up Week with a subject very close to my heart–the rather remarkable and often ignored absence of women of color in the pin-up genre. We don’t see pin-ups of color in magazines. We don’t see them on pin-up tribute sites. We don’t see them in pin-up contests.  Long-time readers of my blog know that this issue is one I’ve talked about before, most notably in the article “Why […]
