For timeless poolside style, look to this season’s swimwear trend; Monochromatic. From Bardot necklines to retro bikinis, elevate your swim collection with our monochrome edit

18.08.16 Black and white combinations continue to remain strong into the new season – and it’s easy to see why. Perennially stylish, the monochrome trend captures a sense of simplicity that is truly timeless. Silhouettes are sleek, sharp and classic, yet take on a more contemporary feel with luxe styling details. Clean lines and contrast panels create a striking effect that contours and frames the figure. The epitome of sophistication, monochromatic designs have the ability to make any beachside style look instantly polished. “Monochrome never fails to make a sleek…

A Sweet Treat: Betty Blue’s Loungewear Valentine’s Collection

Betty Blue’s Loungewear Valentine’s Day Collection I’ve always loved the glamorous image of a woman getting ready in her boudoir. A recent post from The Lingerie Addict on Pre-Code Hollywood Lingerie perfectly captures the mood of decadence, elegance, and sensuality that makes my heart flutter and imagination soar. Most days I, and I imagine many of us, are rushing to get out the door and running around getting ready in our pajamas, a warm robe, a towel, half of our work/school clothes…you get my drift. Having the resources to assemble…

Review: MORE by Bluebella Delta Bodysuit

[Bluebella generously provided this piece for review. I was not compensated for this post, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.] While the full-bust lingerie market is vastly larger and more accessible than it was when I first started hunting for beautiful, well-fitting bras in D+ sizes back in, oh, 2008, the UK lingerie world remains years ahead of the US lingerie world. Victoria’s Secret, whose cup size range maxes out at a DDD, dominates something like 60% of the US lingerie market, and most American department stores stop their inventory…

What I’m Reading This Week: Pre-Trade Show Edition

Hi friends! It’s been a weird week around here, capped off by Gus having to have 12 teeth pulled last night, so instead of sharing a full post, I thought I do a quick reading round-up before we head off into the weekend. * The biggest item on my agenda is that next week is lingerie market week here in NYC. Curvexpo is the largest lingerie trade show in North America (and one of the only ones left, if I’m not mistaken), and this season’s show will preview the Fall/Winter 2017…

Review: Bespoke Full-Bust Lingerie with Harlow & Fox

[Harlow & Fox generously invited me to review their bespoke ordering service. I was not compensated for this post, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.] Long-time readers will recognize Harlow & Fox from several posts over the last few years (including editorials like Agent Carter, Miss Fisher, and Persephone). Harlow & Fox was one of the first true luxury lingerie brands designed exclusively for DD+ cup sizes, and they’ve remained leaders in the market, even as full bust luxury offerings have increased and diversified. One major consumer request has followed from their…

Avocado Lingerie 2017: Intimacy No. 2

I won’t lie, I gasped when I opened Avocado Lingerie’s 2017 catalogue. Ce Soir Vintage Silk Libertine I love that Avocado Lingerie always looks unmistakably like itself, instead of fighting to recreate styles from other brands. Rather than bowing to the tyranny of the omnipresent t-shirt bra, or scrambling to crank out neon or polka dots or whatever bright, flashy detail is the current big thing, Avocado lets gorgeous textiles, fine embroidery, and thoughtful details and finishes speak for themselves, resulting in a full-bust lingerie collection that is unparalleled in elegance…
