Every year around around Valentine’s Day, your lingerie throws a party.  This is its chance to climb out of the doldrums of your drawer where, let’s face it, you’ve probably wadded it under your socks and forgotten about it for a year.  It’s all too easy, even for lingerie addicts, to slip into boring black leggings and t-shirts that came free with a […]

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 […]

Disclosure:  Samples were provided free of charge for review purposes.  All opinions are my own.  This blog post contains affiliate links. It was my first pajama breakfast with my boyfriend’s mother. 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 post contains affiliate links. October! It’s that spooky sexy time of year again. Time to take a break from our quotidian modern uniforms and try on something fantastical and escapist. Halloween is my favorite holiday — not just because of the candy eating and partying (though that would be enough), but because it offers us the opportunity and excuse to dress like someone or something else for a […]

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 […]

I’m going to miss the World Cup. It has been my constant summer companion, always just a click or glance away. The best thing about the World Cup for a mild soccer enthusiast like myself from a country of middling international soccer achievement is that it provides a reliable flow of delicious drama. I can wade through other people’s joy, frustration, diving, and biting for ninety minutes without having to […]

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. […]
