Spring is in full bloom, and it’s for a change in lingerie. I’ve loved Harlow & Fox’s Anastasia robe ever since I first laid eyes on it at Spring/Summer 2015 lingerie market. While the brand is known for luxury full bust bras (DD-G cup sizes) and dramatic lace trim robes, to me, the Anastasia robe captures the essence of Harlow & Fox…especially since it’s something that can be worn by […]

It’s happening again. That thing where I can’t stop thinking about a particular lingerie set. Where it fills up my thoughts and my dreams and makes me obsessively check my budget, wondering if this is the day I move forward and commit…or do I dare to wait just a little while longer? Truth be told, there are two reasons behind my hesitation. One, I’ve never purchased anything from Uye Surana […]

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. Full bust and plus size customers now have access to bondage inspired pieces, to […]

Note: Some photos below may be NSFW. Truth be told, I’m not quite sure where to begin with this article. I feel like I should start by thanking Sweets, the lingerie blogger (and awesome human being) who came up with this whole idea, but a simple ‘thank you’ doesn’t quite convey the depth of my feeling here. The photoshoot in this article is one of the most special experiences I’ve […]

Note: Some images may be NSFW At this point in my lingerie blogging career, I feel like a pretty savvy consumer. It takes a lot more than it did in 2008 to impress me, and certain events, like a new lingerie store, just aren’t newsworthy in and of themselves anymore. Of course, I’m always excited, professionally speaking, when a new intimate apparel boutique opens (more options for more people is […]

I’ve been sitting here for the better part of an hour trying to think of a super-fashiony, sophisticated way to start off this blog post, and I can’t so I’ll just jump right to it. I love this lace. Every since I first laid eyes on this set, I knew it had to be featured on TLA. Black lace is my kryptonite, but, as you already know, lace tends to […]

In an industry that uses some of the most tactile fabrics in fashion, there’s much to be said about the power of lace. Only lace has this wonderful way of transforming the body so that our skin becomes part of an intriguing play of transparency and opacity. While much of the lace that lingerie addicts like myself swoon over is all about a decadent scalloped edge, sometimes it’s nice to […]

Edge O’Beyond is one of those rare labels that came out of the gate with a distinctive point of view that normally takes several seasons to hone. Since its debut just two years ago, the brand has gracefully matured, experimenting with the pairing of materials both exquisite and unconventional. Its Spring/Summer 2016 collection is a shining example of luxury lingerie at its finest. Gilded laces in smoky silvers and burnished […]

Pillowbooks were titillating works of art created in ancient China as illustrated guides in the art of seduction. They were used to embolden and empower, encouraging adventure, individuality, and a love of beauty. It is this love of erotic storytelling that inspires Beijing-based luxury label, Pillowbook. In a series of well edited collections, the brand takes us on a tour of Chinese and Vietnamese locales where love and ambition reign. […]

Someone once asked me what my biggest vice was. Did I have one weakness or addiction that I struggled to keep under control? For some it’s junk food. For some it’s cigarettes. For some it’s something far worse. But for me, I love to shop. Not in an occasional, every-few-weeks kind of way but more of an every-waking-moment-I-can kind of way. Yeah, it’s a problem but luckily I’ve taught myself […]
