Lingerie of the Week: Kriss Soonik ‘Susan Motion’ Lace Body

I adore all things sheer and see-through. And though I love the color black when it comes my intimates, I’ve lately realized the virtues of other colors – like a vibrant hot pink. Kriss Soonik‘s lace bodysuit was one of the pieces that caught my during last year’s lingerie preview, and I still feel just as strongly about it now as I did then. Perfect for lounging around the house or for layering with a pencil skirt and stiletto heels, this is the kind of lingerie you can get a lot of use out of. Here’s hoping the designer comes out with extended sizing soon. Available in small and medium for $184.00 at Faire Frou Frou.

Fleur of England English Rose Collection

 

Fleur of England’s new ‘English Rose’ collection is destined to be a classic. I first saw this line at CurveNY last fall, and I’ve been dying to share the photos every since. And now that the collection is available to purchase (just in time for Valentine’s Day!), I can.

According to Fleur, the pink rose symbolizes grace, and the collection itself is meant to capture romance, freshness, and delicacy…three qualities I love in luxury lingerie. Bra band sizes start at 30 and cup sizes go up to an E. Knickers and gowns are available in sizes S thru L and the robe is one size fits all. Pieces start at £49.50 (~$78.15) and go up to £365.00 (~$576.23). What’s your favorite item from the new collection? I’m a bit partial to the plunge bra and lace shortie myself.

My 5 Favorite Lingerie Websites of 2012

Earlier this week, I posted a few of my favorite lingerie blog discoveries of last year, and just before the holidays, I wrote about my favorite lingerie brands of 2012. But I realized this week that there are some fantastic lingerie sites which don’t really fall into either one of those categories (i.e blog or brand) that I very much enjoyed last year as well. So this post is about them. These are the kinds of lists that I think are always made better by the comments, so if you’ve got a favorite lingerie site of your own that isn’t mentioned here, please share what it is. I’d love to hear about it!

Busty Girl Comics

Via: Busty Girl Comics

For one whole year, Busty Girl Comics took the web by storm with her funny, insightful, and amazingly diverse comics about what life is like for women with boobs. And though the comic is no longer updated daily (the very last one was posted on Dec. 4th), her work is the kind of stuff that will never get old. I’m purchasing all three Busty Girl Comics Collected Editions as a gift to myself next month, and if you enjoyed the comics (and want to support an independent artist!), I hope you do too.

OMG That Dress! (The Underwear Tag)

OMG That Dress! by way of The Victoria and Albert Museum

The second of three Tumblr sites on this list, OMG That Dress! is a godsend for historical fashion lovers like me. The founder of the site is meticulous about including information and links, and it’s always a delight when a little bit of vintage lingerie history appears in my dash. If you’re looking for a little Lingerie Addict eye candy or just want to get lost in the prettiness for a few hours, you have to visit OMG That Dress!

Cats That Look Like Pinup Girls

What can I tell you about this site that you haven’t already guessed from the title? Quirky and cute in the extreme, Cats That Look Like Pin Up Girls is my go-to place for a quick smile and sometimes even a laugh.

Lucy’s Corsetry’s YouTube Channel

Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry

I get a lot of questions about corsets. Corsets are usually a pretty major investment, so people understandably want reviews of brands and styles. They also want to talk fabrics and price points. And, of course, there are the usual questions about tightlacing and the corset lifestyle. Well, Lucy’s Corsetry is the best corset review resource I know of anywhere. Warm, personal, and incredibly knowledgeable, Lucy’s YouTube channel should be one of the first places you check when you’re shopping for a corset.

Vintage Stockings Archive

via: The Vintage Stockings Archive

While not a recent discovery, the Vintage Stockings Archive is one of my ongoing favorite websites, and since it’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned them here, I thought it was high time to remind some of my newer readers about this gem on the internet. Management of the VSA recently changed hands, and hopefully that won’t bring with it any changes to the website. Let’s just say if you love vintage pin-ups, old-school fetish, and burlesque photos, you’ll have a great time here. WARNING: This site is definitely NSFW.

Sirens by Sally Jones Spring/Summer 2013

The Australian lingerie label Sally Jones has just released a new collection nightwear specifically for DD+ cup women named Sirens by Sally Jones. Inspired by the 1930′s through 1950′s, the new Sirens range is all about offering screen siren-esque but still supportive lingerie. Sirens by Sally Jones is available in sizes 8 thru 22 UK/AUS (4 thru 18 US) and retails around the $100 mark. What do you think of the line?
