lingerie of the week

One of the things I’ve never shared about these Lingerie of the Week features is that they share a dual purpose. Yes, part of the point is to share what I think is new, cool, exciting, and interesting. But the other part, the other purpose, to these posts is to create a sort of archive, a font of lingerie memories that others can access. So often, I recall a brand […]

It’s starting to look like Seattle’s little bit of summer is already over. While the weather is still gorgeous outside (I plan to take a little tea break and sit in the sun right after publishing this), the high temperatures from 4th of July weekend are already gone and most days are hovering right around the mid-70s. A very comfortable temperature to be sure, but not necessarily what most people […]

Maybe it’s just the fact that I want to save up for a nice vacation, but after years of feeling disenchanted with the world of budget lingerie, I find myself newly excited again. Some of that, I’m sure, has to do with the size range available in this sector. While many ‘straight size’ brands are reluctant to expand into plus sizing (and even the ones that have often refuse to […]

Aubade is a French luxury brand that’s perhaps most famous stateside for their annual lingerie calendars, but the label is seen by many as emblematic of French-style lingerie (right up there with names like Chantal Thomass, Fifi […]

I’ve got a lot of feels about Sugar Lace Lingerie right now. I first discovered the brand through Instagram (likely by trawling one of the many lingerie-related tags), and almost immediately, I felt compelled to follow them. There’s just something so light and playful and whimsical about this label; it’s a reminder that lingerie can (and, whenever possible, should) be fun. I spend so much time immersed in the business […]

What I mean by that is, every season, we talk about upcoming trends and styles for market, and then, very often, those sets and ranges never appear on the blog again. Which means if there’s something you really loved, you may miss […]

It’s hard to describe just how much I love lace right now. I’ve mentioned a few times around here that there’s this whole, rich world of textiles which has recently opened up to me (primarily through obsessively talking with other lingerie people about fabric), and, quite suddenly, I appreciate lace and embroidery and silk and tulle more than I ever imagined possible. For lace especially, there’s something bewitching about all […]

Disclosure: This article contains affiliate links. Yeah… I’m not even going to apologize for choosing more sheer black mesh for this week’s Lingerie of the Week (and our first Lingerie of the Week since the start of the new year!). Because really, sheer black mesh is the best lingerie material, which means anything that gives you more of it (like say, a dramatic, floor-length robe) is, by default, also the […]

As I sit here writing this, it’s exactly 1 degree Fahrenheit above freezing. And even though it’s nowhere near officially winter yet (that’s still over a month away for those wondering), I still find myself already wishing for warmer weather. I can’t help it. Cold weather – particularly Seattle’s version – just seems to drain me. One upside to the cooler weather, however, is all the super soft and cozy […]

The Lingerie of the Week article is a weird thing sometimes. On the one hand, I feel like it should feature ever wilder, more creative, and technically innovative lingerie designers. On the other hand, there’s something to be said for simple, classic, even basic silhouettes done well. It’s a careful balance of keeping things new and fresh and exciting, but also being being genuine about what I really like. After […]
