Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Panache Lingerie Body positivity is all the rage in the lingerie industry right now, but, unfortunately, many ‘bodyposi’ initiatives fall a bit flat when you take a closer look. While it’s certainly impossible for any one brand to do everything, brands that are taking great strides to diversify what we see in the lingerie world should be applauded, and Panache is exactly one such […]

It’s an unusual experience for people who wear over a D cup to go into a store and be able to try on *any* style they like. But more and more, fashionable brands are expanding into fuller cup sizes, meaning the cute bras at department stores and lingerie boutiques fit more people. Brands that previously made only “core sizes” (typically 32A through 36D or DD) started noticing that boutiques use sizing […]

I’ve written repeatedly about how the full bust and plus size lingerie portions of the lingerie industry have changed wildly since I started writing here. I write a lot about things like sizing expansions and marketing campaigns around here, but the styles of lingerie available have also expanding rapidly from what was available several years ago.

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links While this is the time of year to preview lingerie trends for next season, even I have to admit that lingerie is truly seasonless attire. Though lingerie professionals and trend forecasters talk about certain prints and trims being “in” or “out,” the fact of the matter is no one cares if a bra is a season or three out of date.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Dear Scarlett. For the first time since the age of made-to-order lingerie, the full bust bra world is spoiled for choice. Brand after brand is attempting to capture the lucrative DD+ market, with several new labels even veering away from the cheeky patterns and bright colors that were first hailed as fashion-forward styles for full bust shoppers. However, the downside of more choice, ironically, […]

I don’t know what’s caused it, but lately I’ve been majorly into beige, tearose, and blush lingerie. After years of actively avoiding anything beige (at least partially because of how it’s always advertised as ‘nude’), I feel as though I’ve rediscovered the color.

Their Spring/Summer 2016 collection is a delightfully fashion forward blend of retro and modern, whimsical and classic, edgy and romantic. Several core […]
