This year’s New York lingerie market will go down in infamy, at least for me. Not only did I come down with an epic case of the flu, all of my photos (which The Fiance, being the super awesome guy he is, came to the show with me to take) have disappeared from my camera. That makes coverage a little harder than usual, but not impossible, thanks to wonders of […]

Now that the Spring/Summer market is over, it’s time to take all the stuff I’ve seen and condense it into our semiannual lingerie trends reports. This was a really busy market season for me as I attended two shows for the very first time: the Salon International de la Lingerie in Paris and the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas… in addition to my usual circuit of the Curve New […]

Like all the best trends, there’s an option for everyone, […]

This probably won’t surprise you, but I look at a lot of lingerie. And especially with the popularity of Mad Men, I look at a lot of vintage-inspired lingerie. Every lingerie company out there is slapping a little bit of lace on a bra and a couple of garters on a panty and calling it “retro,” “pin-up,” or “burlesque.” But nobody, and I mean nobody, is doing vintage-style lingerie like […]

By: Karolina The topic of whether or not luxury lingerie is worth the price tag is not exactly original. Yet, as my first year of teaching at lingerie school draws to an end, it’s made me reconsider the relationships of value and quality. More and more have I been disappointed with recent lingerie purchases – high-end lingerie where you’d expect a little something extra in exchange for the hefty price […]

By: Holly Samples for this review were provided by BareNecessities.com, the UK Curvy Kate team, and the US Curvy Kate team. All opinions are my own. I’ve always been a fan of Curvy Kate’s Star in A Bra Model Competition, but I hadn’t tried their bras until recently. Most of this was due to proximity, or lack thereof.
