Tutti Rouge Lingerie

Tutti Rouge Lingerie

I am on the way to Mexico or have already touched down in this tropical beach-side paradise when you are reading this blog. It’s close to 90 degrees in Cabo today, warm enough to ignite the withdrawal stage that always happens after I return. It’s hard to believe that just this past week-end, I was ensconced in the autumn colors that are currently devouring the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. Having spent my last few days in the USA at our family camp on Schroon Lake, the thought occurred…

Intimate Apparel Blue Prints (in White) – Temper Lingerie

Lingerie Briefs Temper Lingerie

Black lingerie has gotten to have all the fun, so it turns out that all-white lingerie can be equally sexy, and can forego the typical classification of being “bridal”.  UK designer Amelia Firth-Waugh has created the brand Temper Lingerie as a way of reinventing the role of white intimates.  It’s no surprise that her creative influence and professional background includes internships at Chromat (see some similarities?) and Alexander McQueen, and a design position with Reckless Wolf. The self-described opulent brand is inspired by New York architecture with select pieces that…

Wrapped in Glamour – Dressing Gowns & Feather-Trimmed Robes

Lingerie Briefs Jean Harlowa

There are robes that we mere mortals wear, and then there are robes that the likes of Dita von Teese, Jean Harlow and Loretta Young wear (or wore).  As you will see, the two are worlds apart!  Of course the focus of today’s post are the glamorous satin and feather-trimmed robes of yesteryear along with some striking vintage-inspired styles that are available today.  It’s ironic that the dressing gowns these ladies wore in the privacy of their home rivaled the decadence of the clothes they wore out!   The common…

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…

Showcasing their upcoming collections for next season, we were lucky enough to have a sneak peek at all the gorgeous new lingerie and swimwear from Freya, Fantasie, Huit, Wacoal, B.Tempt’d and Elomi.

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…

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…
