The beauty of the bralette is that it’s lightweight, soft, and easy to wear — but best of all, it has no underwires. While many women find underwire bras necessary in their daily lives, abandoning them can bring about a sense of freedom and empowerment. Even if you can only wear a bralette on the weekends or lounging around the house, they are worth the investment. Bralettes are nothing new — […]

It’s a fact that people have been taking pictures of lovely ladies for as long as there have been cameras. There’s something about really old photos that has always seemed particularly luminous and compelling to me, some combination of the film and retouching techniques that is reminiscent of an oil painter’s brush strokes.

Vintage-inspired, authentic vintage, vintage catalogs… taking a past look at women’s undergarments is interesting not only from a fashion perspective, but also from a social or cultural one. You can tell a lot about people and the times they lived in based on what they wore, and lingerie is no different. While there aren’t as many vintage lingerie videos as there are for, […]

The Lingerie Parlour is a UK-based boutique owned by Leah Loverich, who also a runs a lovely lingerie Tumblr blog (the blog predates the shop).

The world of fashion in New York is a small one, and recently it bumped me into a friend-of-a-friend who shares my love for designing lingerie. Stephanie Chen has just launched the incredibly beautiful lingerie line, Sapphire Bliss. After designing womenswear for quite a few brands you’ve heard of, Stephanie decided to branch out on her own and follow her passion for lingerie. She spent two years preparing to launch […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I’ve always found that there’s something totally irresistible about antique and vintage textiles. Be it printed silks or exquisite laces, fabrics from bygone eras seem to have so much more care put into them that modern equivalents pale a little in comparison. Our modern culture of fast and disposable fashion has done away with the care and delicacy that was once so commonplace. Victorian […]
