Modern Bridal Beauty ~ ADORN des dessous

We finally see ADORN’s new luxury bridal lingerie collection this Spring. The founder, Adrine Bimanand, introduced me to her bridal accessory company, Creative Touch.

Subsequently, Adrine has created a beautiful capsule collection of key styles of wedding lingerie, bras, panties, garters and sleep pieces. Her designs, all executed in luxury laces and silk georgette are modern examples of the underpinnings that a contemporary bride might desire: delicate white intimates embraced in…

Review: Playful Promises Bettie Page Retro Lace French Knickers

Review: Playful Promises Bettie Page Retro Lace French Knickers

I received Playful Promises’,  I just could not resist adding a pair of these Retro Lace French Knickers to the basket for myself. I mean, look at them!     Appearance That is black with scalloped lace, which are all my favourite. Little fabric covered buttons? I chose a wedding dress with 83 of the things down the back because I think they’re just the prettiest design detail ever. I quite like the contrast between the opaque top and the sheer bottom too (and yes, they are completely sheer at the crotch). Also, random…

A Love Affair ~ Chantelle Sports Bra

A Love Affair ~ Chantelle Sports Bra

I love Chantelle’s Sports Bra very much. There are so many good sports bras on the market. In fact, I own quite a few of myself and I happily wear them. My husband moans when I pack my bags for Mexico. He cannot understand why my bra wardrobe occupies so much space in my suitcase. But, there is a reason. I am a large breasted woman of a certain age who is extremely active. I ride daily, go to yoga several times a week and when forced by circumstance, take…

Naughty, Nice & New ~ Maison Close Lingerie

Naughty, Nice & New ~ Maison Close Lingerie

My friend, Alison,  discussed with about Maison Close and whether or not, the brand belonged in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs. Alison’s weekly column in the Gallery showcases new and/or independent talents with niche followings. We decided that perhaps, this was not the correct venue because Maison Close is now more mainstream. The brand is recognized globally within their particular merchandising channel; chic lingerie with an edge of erotica. The collections provide a sensual balance to many retail assortments of basic bras and pajamas for the 30 yers old. They…

Sustainability Matters ~ Underprotection

Sustainability Matters ~ Underprotection

I am cut off from the noise of our never ending multimedia noise stream, as living in Mexico gives me a lot af stress. I can’t understand the language well enough to read or listen to the local news.  The weather is spectacular; the people warm and selfless. I could go on. But the reality is that we are in a second world country. A walk in the desert yields garbage thrown there with no real consequence.  Recycling is not on the radar. Emission laws don’t exist. The air is…
