Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. The Stylish Fox has been selling hosiery online since 2010. Retina Vita Bassa is their first foray into private label products. Working with an Italian manufacturer, they designed and created these low-rise fishnets with a lace waistband. I field tested these fishnets to see how they held up – pun intended! The fishnets arrived wrapped in […]

Disclosure: I received these items free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. With the holidays officially here, you may be hanging stockings by the fire or donning wooly socks to warm your chilled toes. Today I’m reviewing Gio Stockings, which are of an entirely different nature. Gio’s nylon stockings are made in England on original Reading knitting machines, “just as they were made in the 1960s.” […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’m one of those people that absolutely despises wearing tights; to me, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than those pinching waistbands and baggy crotches. Discovering stockings and suspenders in my early teens was somewhat of a revelation: all of the comfort that I’d been missing in tights but with added glamour. Consequently, after all these […]

Since then, I’ve bought and worn these stockings at least a dozen times, and they continue to enchant me. Almost a decade later, I still remember the rush of excitement when I first saw those embroidered peacock feathers. Despite a lifetime of wearing […]

It’s that time of year when we all start stocking up on sweaters and tights in preparation for colder weather, so today I thought I’d cover some of the best plus size options out there. These range from fully fashioned stockings to trendy and whimsical tights, so there should be something here for everyone. If you can’t get enough of silk, there’s even a 100% silk pair of stockings thrown […]

I love hosiery because of it’s ability to update almost any outfit; a basic skirt or dress can look completely different when paired with a pair of electric purple tights vs. a  pair of skintone fishnets. Hosiery was my first introduction […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links. Update: Between posting this item and checking it again, the thigh highs shown below have sold out! For a replacement item, I’d recommend taking a look at Pretty Polly’s Fishnet Mock Thigh High Tights. They’re not as cheap as the DKNY stockings below, but they are a great look for fall. We’re keeping things simple with this week’s Lingerie Sale Pick of the […]

I finally set aside some time this weekend and dealt with my overflow of lingerie. My situation is obviously more drastic than other peoples’, as I see lots of lingerie due to my column here and my job as a lingerie copywriter. However, almost all of us have stuff that is old, worn out, or lingerie that we just don’t wear lurking around in our lingerie drawers. Since most of […]

Designing lingerie can be a hard, grueling job, but someone’s got to do it! Not that it’s without its perks, of course. However ,the industry is by no means a cushy one, and often the job is not nearly as luxurious as it seems. There are certain times the workload can get downright unbearable with 18-hour work days, non-stop travel and back-to-back meetings monopolizing your entire schedule, let alone your […]

Though I have no idea who Giles Deacon is and though I don’t have an Ann Summers anywhere near me, I’ve been keeping an eye out for the Giles Deacon for Ann Summers collection ever since I first glimpsed it on Vogue UK. I’m always intrigued when a mainstream fashion designer collaborates with a lingerie company; the opportunity to see something altogether new and exciting is one I can’t resist. […]
