I thought about including this Prickly Pear Embroidered Bralette in our Autumn/Winter bra roundup, but it’s so much fun and so unique (and also doesn’t have a matching knicker), that I felt it was better showcased in a blog post of its own. I honestly don’t remember where I first ran across Birds and Beestings embroiderery work. It may have been in one of those recommended Instagram post or as […]

While I love a floral print or sherbert pastel as much as the next person, Autumn/Winter with its deep tones and rich textures is my favorite season for lingerie. Spring/Summer designs tend to be about lightness, airiness, and delicacy, but I feel like the Autumn/Winter revolves around heavier laces […]

Disclosure: This article is sponsored by Yandy.com. After 2 strong releases in spring and summer, Yandy returns to the world of bras with their autumnal “Everyday Sexy” collection. While the first two releases focused on fun, floral, lacy basics in shades of grey, peach, and blue, this season’s range takes a slightly darker turn with deep burgundy, black, and navy tones, perfect for wearing under both hoodies and holiday dresses.

Disclosure: I received this lingerie from Impish Lee for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. Custom lingerie is a bit of a contentious topic for me. I can see the appeal of being given a voice in the design in your lingerie and the excitement of owning something potentially unique. My perspective is dramatically different than that of the average lingerie buyer; as a designer who’s […]

You know what? I’ve been sleeping on Goddess. Over the last couple of seasons, this Wacoal-owned brand (formerly part of the Eveden Group) has decided to step up their game and make people take notice of them. Plus size bras are a source of constant frustration in the lingerie world. They require a number of different pattern, material, and fit improvements to work for the needs of a larger bust, […]

This lingerie directory has been compiled by Source Du Mal, a young lingerie enthusiast from Chicago who is an avid advocate for plus size and full bust options in lingerie. I have had many conversations on Twitter about bras and have seen many industry figures speak about the public perception about bras and the seeming divide between the consumer and the perceived ‘appropriate cost’ of bras. 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 […]

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Yandy.com It’s the first few days of summer, which means it’s time to think about packing for vacation. And even if your vacation this year is more a “staycation,” new lingerie can help inject a sense of vitality and joie de vivre into even the most mundane of schedules. Only a few months after the wild success of their first spring bra collection, Yandy […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Lane Bryant’s Cacique line of undergarments is a mainstay amongst plus size shoppers. They’ve largely been unchallenged as a primary source of bras in particular because they are the most well known and universally available. My first fully fledged bra came from Lane Bryant many many years ago and I remained a loyal customer through significant changes in band and cup size. Now, […]

Empreinte is one of those brands that everyone in the lingerie industry knows and loves, but that outsiders (like myself) often have a hard time getting. It was years before I was able to look beyond the ornate European lace and embroidery, and truly understand what made their bras so extraordinary. When it comes to full bust bra design, Empreinte is a master, and I’m not just talking about the […]
