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 […]

At $13.47, Ann Summers’ Sicily Underwired Bra is an amazing deal. I mean, this is the definition of a perfect little splurge. Even if you buy it, and it’s not quite what you hoped for, you’re out maybe $20, including shipping. That’s not bad for giving a brand a try and maybe discovering a few favorite. Personally, I adore the colorful, floral embroidered details on the Sicily bra. The brand […]

When I’m looking at a new designer, I’m not only trying to get sense of their design aesthetic, I’m also searching for their point of view, for that intangible, abstract quality that lets me know if they’re thinking of lingerie in a way that’s unique, unusual, or provocative. Sometimes it’s a distinct pattern or usage of lace giving that extra insight. Sometimes it’s a choice of model or setting for […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. The nights are growing longer. The weather’s getting cooler. And lingerie is going darker. 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 contains affiliate links Journelle’s Emerging Designers Program is back for a second time, and I am incredibly excited to see this boutique continue their mission of supporting and featuring indie designers. It’s easy for any lingerie shop, but especially one with Journelle’s cachet and reputation, to simply stock the same labels as everyone else. But they’ve chosen to go in a different direction, and that’s a wonderful […]

I just received some more photos from my summer NYC shoot with Lars Kommienezuspadt over over the weekend, and I had to share them here straight away. I can’t help but fall in love with Lars’ photography, even when I’m not the subject. He makes all his models – including the nonmodels like me – look exquisite, and the makeup artist he chose for this shoot, Brown Paper Doll Beauty, […]

A little more than a year ago, a young designer, Cristina Aielli, approached me at The Oxford Conference of Corsetry, to ask if I’d be willing to take a look at one of her designs. She was very shy, completely unassuming, and I remember how we went to a little tucked away area because she was worried about showing her work in front of others (last year’s attendees included the […]

Today’s guest post was written by Emma Parker, Founder and Director of Playful Promises, a UK-based lingerie label known for trendy designs that manage to be vintage-inspired yet thoroughly modern. Some time ago there was an article on the Lingerie Addict that raised some concern in me. It was well-meant and intended to help people make better ethical choices when purchasing lingerie. However to me,  it read as a list […]

Fashion is my form of personal self expression but I can recognize that it doesn’t exist in a bubble. There’s something about my personal style that needs to be seen and heard. I know that for me at least this stems from existing in a body that […]
