Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. February is such a great month for lingerie. I mean, come on; Nylon was patented on February 16th in 1937. How much more relevant to the lingerie industry can you get? Here are 10 lingerie sets for the 10 most important days in February. (Hint: They’re not Valentine’s Day.) For that day you miss your train Coco’s Retro Closet is one of those Etsy shops […]

I can’t take the credit for this week’s stunning lingerie discovery. That has to go to Tiah Eckhardt, fellow lingerie blogger and renowned lingerie model (if you’ve seen Dita Von Teese’s latest campaign, then you’ve seen her). Tiah tagged me on Instagram basically saying I had to see this designer, and you know what? She was right. For me, these Lingerie Wishlist features are about showing off the most opulent, […]

Janay was the first brand I covered for TLA about a year and a half ago (wow, time flies when you’re having fun!). Their debut collection was notable for its bras with unique center gore details and its strappy suspender belts that criss-crossed over the hips. I was delighted to see that this small British label is continuing to thrive and has released a sophomore collection that has all of […]

I’ve spent a lot of time recently pondering the term ‘handmade’; it’s a difficult word to dissect at the best of times but becomes particularly complex in the realm of lingerie. As a lingerie designer, a large part of my brand currently relies on the notion that my products are ‘handmade’. Almost every garment that leaves my studio doors was sewn by me from start to finish. Yet as we […]

What better way to start the new year than with the discovery of a gorgeous and glamorous new lingerie label? Liliana Casanova is making the kind of lingerie that is truly rare in today’s world. Handcrafted one piece at a time in her Paris studio, French silk and laces are transformed into incredibly lush and romantic pieces that are far too pretty to cover up. It’s all so dreamy and […]

Note: The lingerie in this review was purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own. Mosh and Dottie’s Delights are unaffiliated with this review. I have to admit, I am the kind of person who buys holiday gifts for herself as well as for others. Last year, I treated myself to some lingerie, including the Sheer Show Pantsuit from Mosh + Dottie’s Delights. I’d been eyeing this piece for […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. Helen Valk Varavin is one of those names I’ve seen pop up fairly often in the online lingerie world, particularly in the realm of Etsy designers. I must admit, however, that I never really made much effort to actively seek out her designs; the majority of what I’d seen was soft silk pieces which, […]

What do you get when you merge the talents of two bridal designers who are used to making big-day dreams come true? You get Lovedeluxe, a magical and romantic lingerie line that celebrates moments big and small. Wendy Harman, a wedding dress designer, and Natasha Hutchison, a bridal accessories designer, have come together to create a small capsule collection of intimates where luxe materials and fine finishing techniques really shine.

Dottie’s Delights has always had an incredible talent for designing collections that pay homage to the retro aesthetic while remaining accessible and modern. This season designer Stephanie Kuhr has moved beyond her popular mid-century aesthetic to include silhouettes derived from the 1920s and 30s for her most glamorous collection yet. Just as in the 1927 silent film Metropolis for which the collection was named, the collection has one foot in […]

I know, I know we just featured a dressing gown last week, but bear with me while I explain… One of the things I’ve realized lately is that TLA’s archives aren’t just my blog archives, they’re also a sort of archive of the lingerie world. While everything is, obviously, heavily slanted towards what I like, there are still years of industry records here — brands that have come and gone; […]
