full bust

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. Despite the marketing, beige, blush, and soft rose are so much more than “invisible” colors for certain skintones. These shades can be elegant, timeless, glamorous even, and […]

Lingerie for review was purchased with my own money. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While Tia Lyn makes a huge range of sizes, the company particularly excels at plus size pieces. They’ve won all kinds of awards for for their plus size line and have been featured prominently at Full Figured Fashion Week for several years now.

  Cosabella has recently launched a gorgeous new expanded version of their bestselling line — with the label of “extended sizes” instead of plus sizes. This wording isn’t unique to Cosabella. With the campaigns like #droptheplus gaining popularity among consumers, lingerie brands and boutiques are looking for terms that go over better with customers than “plus size.” Cosabella uses “extended” in much the same way everyone else does: for bras […]

Women with fuller figures are often taught to feel like we should compensate for the fact that our bodies are bigger. There is a very narrow idea of what an “acceptable” plus size body looks like, so many of us are proud of our thin legs, our round butts or our big breasts, and often feel as if they’re our redeeming qualities, to “make up” for the rest of our […]
