Bluebella is a relative newcomer to the lingerie scene, but they’ve already carved out a niche in the domain of budget-friendly lingerie. The lingerie industry, like the rest of the fashion world, is experiencing a hollowing-out of sorts. Luxury brands are doing very well, and inexpensive brands are doing very well…but everyone in between is struggling to maintain market share. In this kind of economic climate, a new brand that […]

Way back, essentially a lifetime ago in internet time, I used to publish answers to questions that I received on TLA’s other social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. I moved away from doing that (I’m not sure why… I think I just got distracted), but I still regularly answer reader questions in all of those places. It’s a lot of fun seeing what people have been thinking about and […]

If you don’t live in a lingerie mecca and you don’t like shopping online, then you’re probably familiar with the lingerie offerings of both Walmart and Target. Today I’m curating items from the more fashion focused of the two stores: Target. While Target still isn’t on par with any online plus size […]

These items were purchased by me. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I wrote about the banned ads by Addition Elle last week, so this week I’m going to go ahead and review some of their lingerie! Addition Elle has released a lingerie collection in conjunction with Ashley Graham each season for awhile now, but I’d never been able to try their lingerie since they didn’t go up to my […]
