Disclosure: I received this lingerie from Impish Lee for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. This article is the second installment in my review of Impish Lee’s designs.  The first part focused on the specifics of the lingerie itself, from quality of construction to fit. This part will instead focus on the experience of ordering from the brand and the complexities of the brand’s highly unusual […]

Ellesmere Lingerie is a Montreal-based brand launched this past February by indie designer, Julia Rechel. Julia’s sophisticated, elegant designs are inspired by the aesthetics of the Northern Lights, her background in sculpture, and a desire to focus on the natural forms of the body. The first thing I noticed […]

Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This July, the United Kingdom-based brand, Playful Promises, launched their new Curve line. Founded in 2004, Playful Promises is directional design mixed with playful details. From stockings and harness bras to tassels and teddies, they carry a little bit of all things lingerie, but up until recently, their size range extended only […]

Disclosure: I received this lingerie from Impish Lee for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. Custom lingerie is a bit of a contentious topic for me. I can see the appeal of being given a voice in the design in your lingerie and the excitement of owning something potentially unique. My perspective is dramatically different than that of the average lingerie buyer; as a designer who’s […]

Disclosure: the pieces in this article were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Whenever I can, I prefer to buy my lingerie from indie designers, mostly because I can be more certain that their products are made ethically. Urban Outfitters is far from being an indie retailer and their history of dubious labor practices and problematic marketing has turned me off of […]

[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 […]

Disclosure: I received this set from Boux Avenue for review purposes free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’ve been a fan of the Boux Avenue brand for several years. On the British high-street lingerie scene it certainly stands out, offering one of the widest size ranges in consistently fashion-forward designs at a relatively accessible price point.  Its brick-and-mortar stores offer a lovely shopping experience of attentive staff, pleasant […]

The Victoria & Albert museum is without a doubt my favourite place in London. I’ve been a member of this wonderful institution since I was a teen, and it’s incredibly easy to while away countless hours in its exquisite collections of Art and Design.  They’ve curated some stunningly beautiful exhibitions (the recent Alexander McQueen retrospective and Wedding Dress exhibition spring to mind immediately). When The V&A first announced ‘Undressed: A […]

Disclosure: These items were sent to me free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Sock It To Me is a brand based in Portland, Oregon. I recognized them from their days in the sock-only trade: I was, and am, a big consumer of novelty socks. Their designs are quirky, often inspired by popular culture, and the quality of their products tends to be pretty high (the store’s […]
