She Sells Seashell Swimwear ~ Margarita Mermaid

Margarita Mermaid Lingerie Briefs

When I was 7-years-old, I dressed as a sparkling mermaid for Halloween, likely inspired by the hit movie of the time Splash. As in my childhood I fantasized about being a beautiful mermaid.   My mom and grandma were quite clever creating the costume, using a bright bathing suit of mine as the costume’s base, adding a seashell bra and wrapping my lower torso in green fabric with painted fish scales.  Fast-forward many years later, and once again I am able to dress as a mermaid and it also involves swimwear. …

Sweet Nothing Du Jour : Etta Longline Bra by Bravissimo

Bravissimo Etta

Yesterday,I was snooping around Bravissimo on my day off , checking out new additions to the sale section and seeing what the new arrivals looked like, and honestly this made my jaw drop:   The longline bra trend shows no sign of going away any time soon, and while Bravissimo has carried longline bras from Freya and Cleo before, this season marks the first appearance in from longline bras in their in-house collections (I’ve only been asking them to do this for aaaages). The first entry was the floral Esther…

Anita’s Momentum no wire hi-impact sports bra pictured here delivering this September

 Fit is critical. This is why I feel compelled to highlight, Anita’s Momentum no wire hi-impact sports bra pictured here in the power red version delivering this September. One of the original designs leading the way in innovation for this explosive category, Momentum (5529) is so inclusive; it covers sizes 30-46, A-H. How does this relate to Lingerie? It informs my wardrobe every day of the week. Sports bras, once the sole stake of sporting goods stores, are now a key inventory competitor in Intimate Apparel shops worldwide. What was…

Playful Promises are doing some of the most exciting work in the independent lingerie world right now

  This is not ASOS or Nordstrom or Modcloth, this is a small independent UK-based lingerie brand who have listened to the demand of those of us sized out of core collections and have responded with some of the most impressive new plus size designs I’ve seen in ages. I especially adore how the bold sophistication and daring, graphic shapes of the core collections continue into their larger sizes. So often plus and full-bust pieces get watered-down and lose their edge, but Playful Promises’ Curve and DD-G collections look unmistakably…

Curvy Kate decided to push back : Scantilly’s #TheNewSexyCampaign

What amazed me were the advertising rules. We, a blog promoting elegance, good taste and female self-esteem garnered through the mystical and mechanical world of artful lingerie, were rejected multiple times for images deemed “not appropriate”.  Why? Because the sumptuous female body photographed in lingerie sensually and sometimes fiercely was thought to be offensive. When our images were rejected, we would pull back and post something else. Shame on us.I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. When it launched during my son’s freshmen year in college, I found the concept…

Bluebella, the UK based lingerie company founded in 2005 by Emily Bendell, represents everything we, at Lingerie Briefs, hope for in our quest to support women’s self-esteem.I discovered a new brand at Curvexpo NY last week, mainly because Easton International now representing them in the USA, insisted I take a look.
