Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. 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: the pieces in this article were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Whenever I can, I prefer to buy my lingerie from indie designers, mostly because I can be more certain that their products are made ethically. Urban Outfitters is far from being an indie retailer and their history of dubious labor practices and problematic marketing has turned me off of […]

I wrote this article a week or so ago, but decided against publishing it. Then I thought about it more and decided this article needed to be published, but also that I should explain why I was so hesitant in the first place. And so here we are a with a blog post that’s somewhat meta and rather inconclusive, but hopefully shines a light on what seems to be a […]

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 […]

I have to confess…I’ve gotten myself into a bit of a bind. Oh, I’m full of ideas (and the backend of the site is full of drafts), but I’ve somehow managed to trick my brain into a weird bit of anxiety about actually publishing anything. And I don’t know how that happened. I feel oddly stressed, as though unless my next post is something profound and magnificent, it’ll be a […]

Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. As someone who has never had a thigh gap, I can’t remember a time in my life where I wasn’t actively looking for solutions to alleviate chafing or as I affectionately call it, ‘chub rub.’ My thighs touch year-round so while my skirts may get shorter in the summer, I am at […]

[Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own.] I wear a lot of pink. Like, a lot. The desk where I’m writing this is pink, my hair is usually a little pink, and yep, most of my lingerie is pink. So naturally, when The Pink Pantaloon Co. introduced themselves, I was all. over. it. An entirely pink lingerie company? Yes, please. All of […]

As you may have guessed, lingerie market is an incredibly busy time of year. Between attending Curve (the major lingerie tradeshow), visiting ateliers, and going to all the meetups (such as the one TLA hosted last season for POC and LGBTQIA lingerie professionals), the week is packed solid. Every year, there are brands I miss out on because there’s just too much to see at once, but this year I […]

While the intimate apparel industry is built on functionality and practicality, my favorite kind of lingerie always has an element of the fantastical. Whether we’re talking operatic dressing gowns or sci-fi inspired bustiers, I love lingerie that tells a story. Years ago, before the bondage trend and the bralette trend, brands were all about the pinup trend. Inspired by women like Dita Von Teese, retailers tripped over themselves to offer […]

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, […]
