Has there ever been a more controversial subject in the fashion industry than this one? No matter your opinion on knock-offs, cheap copies of luxury goods are here to stay. After all, if there’s a market for people who want expensive items for lower prices (and there definitely is), there’s going to be a company willing to cater to that market. Some of these knock-offs are outright counterfeits and forgeries […]

Yup, it’s a Zinke kind of day. When I reviewed the Zinke Intimates lace romper one of my chief complaints was that the lace, while gorgeous, had no stretch, give, or flexibility. Those qualities aren’t good for an item that fits close to the body (like a bra, panty, or bodysuit), but they are doable for an item that’s a bit looser… like a robe. I really like Zinke’s trademark […]

Disclaimer: The lingerie in this review was provided by Zinke Intimates. All opinions are my own. Today’s lingerie review is a bit unusual. I actually received this piece a year and a half ago, but chose not to publish a post about it at that time. However while moving, I rediscovered this romper, gave it another try, and decided it’d be a great piece to talk about on the blog. […]

By Holly: When I first started buying lingerie, I bought only matching sets. It was one of the only rules I had when shopping, as it seemed like a waste to me to have bras and knickers that didn’t match. Fast-forward to this month when due to my work schedule, basic things like showers and regular laundry sessions seemed like luxury activities. Last week, I even announced that I had […]

Founded only in January 2010, Canadian brand Fortnight Lingerie is perhaps most famous for being featured in last year’s ‘Super Sexy CPR‘ viral video. But if next season’s collection is any indication, Fortnight is about to be known for a whole lot more. Sweet, seductive, and deceptively simple, Fortnight’s clean lines and sumptuous fabrics embody today’s trends in fashionable lingerie. Best of all, Fortnight manufactures sizes 30A-38E. This is definitely […]

By Laura: Rompers and onesies and teddies… oh MY! The one-piece dressing trend has a lot of women worried, but the teddies I’m talking about have nothing to do with claws and teeth, so don’t be afraid! Rompers have been flouncing around the streets and runways for a few seasons, and they are nowhere sexier than in the boudoir. As a designer, I love designing rompers and teddies. Because they […]

By Kristina: As a lingerie designer, I am constantly on the lookout for new and innovative labels, from which I gain inspiration and ideas. Now, I’m not talking about knocking off original designs (which I do not condone) — I’m talking about searching around for new silhouettes, fabrics, or details that can help me gain insight into what the upcoming trends may be and forecast what will become top sellers […]

By: Marianne I don’t get out much. Really. My life is a stream of “all dressed up with nowhere to go” days, only that’s kind of how I like it. Oh, I might go swing dancing or to a nice tea house, but that’s about the extent of it. Recently, however, I’ve discovered the joy of traveling large distances, like actually (heaven forbid) leaving the state of California, where I […]

By Karolina: I’ll be honest – living on a student budget is not conducive to any sort of addiction, let alone an addiction to luxury lingerie. Nevertheless, addictions have to be fed and over time I’ve learned that I’ll simply have to make compromises. My bra size has always been hopelessly awkward – it remains a sad fact that the majority of lingerie brands tend to avoid such smaller back […]
