Disclosure: I received lingerie for this review free of charge.  All opinions are my own. After my initial shock mellowed, I was delighted by my last encounter with the Bracli pearl front thong bodysuit , which I reviewed here in 2013. When the opportunity came up recently to review Bracli’s new collection, I jumped at it. I was curious how the brand has evolved in the past year since its foray […]

Disclosure: I received these products free of charge for review purposes.  All opinions are my own. Rosy feels like a classic French lingerie brand. It is exactly that, but I don’t mean to state the obvious.  Its sensibility is elegant and refined, with understated colors and lace as a main novelty feature. According to its website, the brand sells mostly bras and panties, along with some sleepwear. It is divided […]

She had entered the kitchen in a silky caftan with a bright painterly floral print, which I immediately identified as a Natori. Natori, the sleepwear brand founded in 1977 by Josie Natori, is characterized by an east-meets-west aesthetic, which […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Editor’s Note: Please also see our earlier review of ThirdLove’s bra fitting app here. What has technology done for your breasts recently? Mine have been enjoying the comfort and support of a ThirdLove bra, all thanks to ThirdLove’s innovative bra-sizing phone app. I probably shouldn’t admit that I’ve worn the 24/7 T Shirt […]

That familiar week of frenzied lingerie shopping is back. No, it’s not the Victoria’s Secret Semi Annual Sale; it’s Lingerie Market week in New York. The nexus of the flurry is Curvexpo, which takes place every February and August at New York’s convention center, the Javits Center. Just getting there is a trial and a hoot. The massive Javits Center sprawls on the westernmost avenue of Manhattan, 11th Ave., remote […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Mastectomy swimwear doesn’t get much love. There are a few companies that sell it, like Land’s End, Anita, and Amoena, but when I created a shopping challenge for myself to find a mastectomy suit I might be excited to wear, I failed. Or maybe, more to the point, the market failed me. Actually, let me back up, if only to expose how my own […]

In March, I wrote an article for this site explaining why I, a straight woman, think more men should wear sexy underwear — for the sake of equality, self expression, and fun. I wrote it on a bit of a whim, and had no idea it would hit such a nerve. Thousands of reads and hundreds of comments later, I felt like a follow-up or two might be called for. […]

Two hours ago, I asked myself “shouldn’t I be using Google Incognito?” I had been doing research for this article, and though I’m on my own computer, in my own home, I could imagine some future situation in which a search history of “sexy men’s jockstraps japan” might land me in awkward waters. And then — call it an internal philosophical debate, or call it writer’s procrastination — I spent […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Every man who’s seen my lingerie bin (unfussy plastic, stackable, belies the sexy within) has been scared or amused. Why would any person need 80 pairs of underwear? Are you some sort of obsessive? Well, yes, maybe I am.  Let me explain to you — lingerie does not just serve the purpose of making […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Things are getting pretty blustery over here in New York. Evening chills hint at the long gloomy nights to come in January, scarves and hats are drawn over faces, friends have started hunkering down for winter hibernation. But there are a few silver linings to the bleakest months, like hot toddies, blazing fires, and cozy pajamas. At this time of year I always find myself […]
