Candy floss, kitten noses, and summer sunsets… some of the best parts of life are pink. I’m sort of notorious for my love of pretty pink things, so when Cora suggested I blog about my favorite pink bras, I was super excited! But since I wear around a 32G, I’m more limited in my selection of cute fashion bras than someone who is a core size. This requires me to be much more selective in the […]

A few years ago, most plus size swimwear options were bland one pieces or tankinis, with no attempt to even approach the vast variety of style or attention to detail given to swimwear in straight sizes. In just a few years, we now have a […]

The modern ready-to-wear lingerie industry is a blessing and a curse. On the bright side, it means great lingerie is widely available to many people, as opposed to just those privileged enough to have custom-made intimates. On the other hand, ready-made lingerie doesn’t fit everyone. No one fits perfectly into all available styles, even in the sizes they expect to wear. Plus, most lingerie labels sell narrow size ranges that […]

Ever since the initial launch of Nubian Skin, there’s been an increased level of coverage dedicated to brands making undergarments in shades of nude which look natural on a variety of skin tones. In addition to the several pieces on TLA alone (here, here, here, here and here), a quick Google search revealed countless articles on the topic and brands aiming to solve the […]

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. As someone who has never had a thigh gap, I can’t remember a time in my life where I wasn’t actively looking for solutions to alleviate chafing or as I affectionately call it, ‘chub rub.’ My thighs touch year-round so while my skirts may get shorter in the summer, I am at […]

[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 […]
