I’m in Atlanta right now visiting my parents, which means I’m checking my e-mail a lot less frequently, and checking my Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr hardly at all. So I want to thank everyone who’s e-mailed, messaged, tweeted, and otherwise made sure I got the memo about the What Katie Did Corset Sale. Whenever someone writes to ask about where they can buy a […]

Blossoming Bloomers If you’ve ever participated in Hanami, or the viewing of the annual Cherry Blossoms, then you understand the allure of this centuries old practice and the inspiration it provides for tourists, artists & peace seekers alike. A traditional Japanese practice, Hanami has risen to become a global phenomenon famous for its beauty and symbolization of life’s ephemerality.

I am super excited about today’s blog post, an interview with Paige, the artist behind Busty Girl Comics. In case you haven’t heard of it, Busty Girl Comics is a webcomic all about the perks (and problems!) of having big boobs. Smart, insightful, and just plain funny, Busty Girl Comics is one of my new daily reads. Take a look at what Paige to say about comics, boobs, and what […]

By: Pippa Soft bras are something which, for years, I brushed past and didn’t even consider. Not being of the usual soft bra A-C Cup, I always figured these just weren’t the bra for me. But more recently I’ve found myself falling in love with the shape, design, detailing and ultra soft cosy fabrics of some soft bras, and before I knew it, found myself making allowances, justifying them and […]

HerRoom creates a universal bra sizing chart. The new chart groups the sizes from 150 different bra brands into 1 letter and 1 number (for example: D1, D2, D3, etc.). Tomima Edmark, founder of HerRoom, says the move to a single sizing chart is meant to help women who don’t know that bra sizing is inconsistent across brands, and who therefore feel like their range of sizes and choices is […]

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 York […]

Our next installment in the “Why Do Lingerie Retailers…?” series is from Claire of full-busted, online only lingerie boutique Butterfly Collection. Claire was one of my 5 Lingerie Bloggers to Watch in 2012, and I am super excited that she’s here sharing her expertise as a retailer with us. One of the questions I get asked a lot on Twitter is “Why doesn’t [insert name of boutique here] carry [insert […]

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