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 […]

In January All is Fair, the first lingerie boutique specifically for trans people, opened its doors in Kansas City. It opened with a small party with pool floaties scattered around on a floor built to have the color and tone of deep water.

I’m a little addicted to corsets. It’s not enough that I make my own, I feel compelled to collect some of the gorgeous work created by my colleagues.

Within the corset community, corset seasoning can be a bit of a contentious issue. Among wearers and makers alike, there’s a distinct split between the individuals who insist upon it and those who think it’s unnecessary.  For those outside the community, the phrase can be a little confusing.

I spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the state of plus size lingerie last year, from the way it is marketed to the types of pieces that are available. In retrospect, I feel like it was a good year for plus size lingerie. We had some progressive ad campaigns spearheaded by outspoken and unconventional spokesmodels as well as fashionable new lingerie pieces. That said, this year there are […]

Dottie’s Delights has returned to its self-proclaimed cheesecake roots in this adorable lookbook that is, indeed, sweeter than cake. It’s a candy-colored confection of pinks and reds, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The cherry on top of this delicious new collection?

Bordelle is one of those lingerie brands who now arguably has a ‘cult’ status; its bandage style creations are instantly recognisable. Celebrities across the globe have sported its signature ‘Angela’ dress whilst its designs can be spotted throughout major fashion press. Indeed, when I first began my forays into the lingerie […]
