Let’s talk #BodyPositivity! Body positive has become the marketing catchphrase of the moment. We see no shortage of brands calling themselves “body positive” through press releases, selectively diverse model choices, and more ad campaigns than I care to count. Media outlets have also been incredibly keen to jump on this bandwagon. They celebrate repetitive, incremental shifts in acceptance and breathlessly post PR copy without giving a second thought as to […]

Since writing for The Lingerie Addict, I’ve frequently mentioned my annoyance with the lack of aesthetic variation in plus size lingerie. The selection for trendy or unique off-the-rack pieces is slowly improving from major brands like Torrid or Cacique, but not as quickly as I (or others) would like. I was thrilled to see Toru & Naoko in TLA’s Best Brands of 2016 list. TLA has reviewed Toru & Naoko previously, but I’m excited to offer a perspective on ordering customized pieces for a fat body.
Since it’s debut in 2013, the partnership between Gabi Gregg and Swimsuits For All has produced some of the most coveted plus size swimwear pieces. Recently, TLA covered the editorial campaign starring Gregg herself. New designs, re-releases of previous designs in new colorways, and a few accessory items comprise the partnership’s 5th collection. I’m excited to review a couple of my favorite suits from this round of designs. I purchased the Reflection Underwire (a new design) and the Champagne Swimsuit (a design from last season available in a new color) and am quite pleased with both.
You’d probably be surprised to learn that I’ve never been one to ask for lingerie for Christmas. Up until recently, I viewed my underwear as a necessity and limited myself to purchases that could be considered practical foundation garments. This lingerie wishlist/gift guide could be useful for individuals seeking to request gifts they would never buy for themselves, but would love to have. 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!
