And I love that they picked fruits & veggies for all the body types! Too cute.

Comment on Real Talk: On Not Wearing Bras (Yes, It’s Okay to Go Braless) by Alicia http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2012/08/real-talk-not-wearing-bras.html#comment-1640727 Thu, 28 May 2015 23:41:28 +0000 http://thelingerieaddict.com/?p=7307#comment-1640727 Thank you for the article. Although I know from personal experience that going without a bra for long periods of time (months because I am home bound I didn’t really feel it necessary to wear one), I found my breasts went from a C30 to a DD46 within a year. Can bras reshape? Reshape I’d have to say no but they ‘probably’ can help hinder such things happening. Eventually everything goes where it’s meant to go. It’s been suggested (via a tv program I saw a bit ago) that if you wear a bra 24/7 then it might help reshape the breast. Since no one’s ever tried it (and please don’t anyone ever do that) no one really knows the out come. I would say be happy with what you have and seek medical help if pain/problems arise. Exercise might help some but it won’t fix everything. I wear a bra when I have to go out because it’s a personal thing to me. Something I’ve always done when leaving home.

I would love to work in the plus size market as an independent designer but like you’ve stated the cost that , that would entail would be expensive.

It’s not perfect, but it’s a start.)

Comment on Lingerie Market A/W 2015: 4 Major Design Trends by Cora http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/05/lingerie-market-aw-2015-4-major-trends.html#comment-1639741 Thu, 28 May 2015 05:57:43 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=42493#comment-1639741 I agree that the quilting, especially on Simone Perele’s pieces, is a nice touch. It’s a wonderfully vintage detail, right up there with cording. The Mimi Holliday cat embroidery was another standout for me too, not necessarily because I’d wear it, but because it’s so delightful to see a brand doing some fun and unique and creative. I really saw a lot I liked at Mimi’s table this season.

It’s a great way to freshen up a piece and give it new life. :)

Comment on How to Care for Vintage Lingerie by Alana http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/01/how-to-care-for-vintage-lingerie.html#comment-1639417 Thu, 28 May 2015 00:29:35 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=34282#comment-1639417 Hi! I was recently gifted my grandmothers lingerie and while I definitely can’t wear it (she was a size 0 I’m a size 18) It’s already at least 60-70 years old and some of the elastic is degraded. I’d really like to preserve the lingerie. Any ideas on long term storage?

I typically don’t go for novelty but these caught my eye. The quilting on several pieces is very nice…I never thought I’d say I was sick of lace.

Comment on Lane Bryant’s “I’m No Angel” Campaign: A Benefit for Diversity or a Barrier? by mbreen http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2015/04/lane-bryants-im-no-angel-campaign-a-boon-for-diversity-or-a-barrier.html#comment-1639393 Wed, 27 May 2015 23:54:14 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=40313#comment-1639393 I would love to find the T-shirt in stores!
Get on board, I am proud of myself. People are so quick to judge you if you’re overweight, you are automatically lazy, slob…..well I’m NOT!!! Remember everyone has a back story, don’t judge.

My plus-size customers are always looking for more options, but there are definitely issues finding quality, well-fitting pieces. I think the design world needs to stop looking at bodies as being of only a handful of types. My plus-size customers with smaller busts, for example, are in a bra wasteland, and likewise, wireless plus-size customers are relegated to boring pieces. You are right about price being an issue. For the quality and improved fit, consumers need to realize they may have to tack on more to their budget.
