  Though Stephanie Bodnar, the designer behind Evgenia Lingerie, has been in the lingerie business for awhile, Evgenia itself is still a very new brand. One of the most important things a fledgling brand must do is define its voice and point of view early on…lest it becomes lost in a sea of other new labels. Fortunately, Evgenia Lingerie achieves that goal admirably, and their fourth season establishes this indie […]

Candy floss, kitten noses, and summer sunsets… some of the best parts of life are pink. I’m sort of notorious for my love of pretty pink things, so when Cora suggested I blog about my favorite pink bras, I was super excited! But since I wear around a 32G, I’m more limited in my selection of cute fashion bras than someone who is a core size. This requires me to be much more selective in the […]

When presented with a collection of white lingerie, it’s so easy to lapse into the wedding trope. Nuptials and bridal bliss and dream days and all that. While Serène Intimates could certainly do amazing things for one’s bridal trousseau (goodness knows I treated myself to a few exceptional pieces when I wed), it seems almost unfair to shortchange the label in this way. After all, one of TLA’s core principles […]

Bebaroque and TLA have a bit of a history. Many of you know I started as a stockings blogger, and they were one of the very first lingerie brands I talked about way back in 2008. In an industry that more or less focuses on sheer pantyhose or opaque tights, Bebaroque made their mark with hosiery featuring unique, jaw-dropping, completely unapologetic prints, meant to be seen and styled as the […]

If you’ve been watching the news lately, no matter where you are in the world, it’s likely that you’ll have heard about ‘Brexit’. It’s the portmanteau name given to the ‘British Exit’ from the European Union (a political union of 27 European countries comprising of common economic, foreign, security, and justice policies). On June 23rd 2016, the population of the United Kingdom (including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Island) had […]

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.] 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 […]

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 […]

It’s no fun trying to find cute lingerie when you’re a trans woman. The vast majority of lingerie is designed for cis women’s bodies, which makes it difficult to know what will fit well or look good on yours. This is especially true when you’re doing your shopping online. Getting fitted and trying on lingerie at a boutique can be really helpful, but it’s hard to guarantee that any given […]
