Part of this may be general bra fatigue (I see a lot of bras at work!) but most of it is simply the feeling that I have seen all of these pieces before. While I still love lingerie and regularly find pieces that I adore, the industry as a whole seems more driven by […]

No matter how many bras you own, most lingerie lovers end up going back to four or five classics that they just can’t get enough of. I’m the same way. Despite an overflowing lingerie drawer (or drawers), I find myself rewearing and replacing a few bras that really get the job done and make me feel great.

While many people were interested in the repercussions for the plus size market, many people also asked me what the new line was actually like.

Lingerie for review was purchased with my own money. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While Tia Lyn makes a huge range of sizes, the company particularly excels at plus size pieces. They’ve won all kinds of awards for for their plus size line and have been featured prominently at Full Figured Fashion Week for several years now. I bought these pieces back in February, so they’ve been washed […]

All products featured in this article were purchased by me. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While I talk exclusively about lingerie here on TLA, if you’ve ever seen my Instagram account you know that my daily wardrobe is extremely vintage-inspired. Over the past few years, I’ve found myself drawn almost exclusively to vintage-style dresses, both authentic and reproduction. As my interest in vintage fashion grew, I found one […]

“It really feels like summer!” I thought as I walked outside yesterday. When I finally checked my weather app on my phone it cheerfully informed me that, with the humidity, it felt like 105 degrees out. Whether you live in the cooler Pacific Northwest or are stuck in the heat hellhole that is the southern US at this time of year, I suspect you’ll appreciate this article. First of all, […]

Note: Some images in this article may not be safe for work. I’ve talked lots in the past about how small indie designers are driving innovations in plus size lingerie, so I wanted to take some time over the next few months to spotlight some of the best ones. We’re starting today with RavenDreams, a plus size luxury lingerie business that does everything right as far as I’m concerned. RavenDreams […]

I love custom lingerie. It’s great if you’re a non-standard shape or want the perfect piece that just isn’t available on the market right now in your size range. Over the years I’ve definitely developed a routine that I follow when I order a new custom piece, so I thought today I’d put together a guide for everyone else. This contains both the basics and some more detailed dos and […]
