Review: Nessa Klara Bra and Brief

[Zathiya generously provided this set for review. I was not compensated for this post, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.] After almost five years of wearing, researching, and writing about full-bust brands, I’m always surprised and pleased when a full-bust brand pops up that I’ve never heard of before!

The Fancy Lingerie Inspired by Swan Lake

Also I made this joke on Instagram yesterday but frankly it’s so stellar that once isn’t enough: here’s some lingerie for when you feel like SWANning around. Thank you! I’ll show myself out. While I only styled Odile, the Black Swan, for yesterday’s editorial, I thought it would be fun to find pieces to suit your mood when you’re feeling like Odette, the White Swan, as well. This list is pretty much an I’ll-take-one-of-everything-thanks kind of list for me personally– what do you think? Iced Ivory Peignoir by Flora Nikrooz (S, M,…
