One major issue that […]

Ever since the initial launch of Nubian Skin, there’s been an increased level of coverage dedicated to brands making undergarments in shades of nude which look natural on a variety of skin tones. In addition to the several pieces on TLA alone (here, here, here, here and here), a quick Google search revealed countless articles on the topic and brands aiming to solve the […]

There’s perhaps no topic more fraught around these parts than the subject of cheap lingerie. In 2015, we devoted a lot of digital ink to discussing why lingerie costs what it does. Karolina broke down the prices for the individual components of her best-selling bra. Quinne discussed how much lingerie designers really make, destroying the notion that everyone in the intimate apparel industry is sitting on piles of money. Rose […]
