Trusst Lingerie launched on Kickstarter in the Spring of 2015 and met its goal in 5 days. The bra was designed to “actually support” full-bust women by using an alternative to the underwire: a 3D-printed bra core called the BAST, which stands for Breast Advanced Support Technology. Trusst says their BAST is more supportive and more comfortable than a traditional underwire by reducing shoulder strain and, according to their website, “eliminating the pinching, poking, and discomfort commonly associated with underwires.” Their goal was to create a bra for women who hate underwire bras and find them uncomfortable. I was super excited for the opportunity to review it as I have a lot of varied thoughts on this concept.
With the holiday season in full swing, you may find yourself with a long list of gifts to buy for your family. Or maybe you’re stuck trying to find that perfect Secret Santa gift for that coworker you’ve only talked to once. Over the holidays, it can be easy to remember to treat everyone but yourself. As a plus size woman, wearing lingerie is something that has helped me learn to love my body and what better time to practice some self love than over the holidays? Whether you’re looking for something naughty, something nice, or something just plain comfy, get in the holiday spirit by giving yourself the gift of festive plus size lingerie.

Maybe you’re like me and have a hard time with large purchases or with buying items that don’t neatly fit into the “useful” box. That’s okay; you don’t have to treat yourself. Instead, show the gift givers in your life this list, and let them do the treating for you!
As a part-time lingerie boutique sales associate, I help all kinds of gift-givers: from the people who straight up say they don’t care if the receiver likes it to the people who want extra gift receipts just in case the color is 10% too blue. However, I spend most of my time helping people buy things for themselves. This means I’ve gotten pretty good at looking at lingerie gift-giving from […]
Ever since I first became interested in the lingerie world, Fleur of England has been on my radar as one of those brands that consistently creates beautiful lingerie. It’s not a brand that I associate with particularly boundary pushing design work, but one that has always created sophisticated and elegant undergarments that I would happily welcome into my own wardrobe.
