Sweet Nothing Du Jour 10/20/14: Figleaves Boudoir Illicite Collection

Good grief, Figleaves has seriously been on FIRE lately. One of my favorite lingerie e-retailers, I continue to be impressed with both their buyers and their in-house designers. Not only are they stocking some of my absolute favorite brands’ best full-bust styles for this season (check out Cleo’s Jolie, Sculptresse’s Paradise, Fantasie’s Ivana, Freya’s Deco […] Read more…

Sweet Nothings reviews Miss Mandalay Amelie

Review: Miss Mandalay Amelie

Oh Amelie, I’ve loved you so long. Amelie is one of Miss Mandalay’s classic ranges (most of which I covered in this post), and it was one of the first really, really beautiful DD+ collections I ever saw, the day I discovered Bravissimo. I paired the phenomenal Paprika seasonal colorway with orange-and-chocolate cupcakes here, but I […] Read more…

Dairy-Free Chocolate Sherbet Recipe

Dairy-Free Chocolate Sherbet

So, as we all know, I’m sure, the difference between sherbet and sorbet is that sherbet contains dairy (usually milk, not cream) and sorbet does not. Sherbet and ice cream differ in that classic French ice cream contains cream and egg yolks. Now that we are all on the same page, I offer my sincere […] Read more…

Sweet Nothings reviews Curvy Kate Roxie Camisole

Review: Curvy Kate Roxie Camisole and Shorts

I’m trying very hard to save money for my trip to London (aka magical lingerie wonderland, or so I’ve been told) next month, but since the fabulous blue “Roxie” camisole set from full-bust fave Curvy Kate made an appearance on my list of favorite styles for Fall/Winter 2014, I knew it was only a matter […] Read more…

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Periwinkle and Soft Blue

CurveNY Trend Report: Spring/Summer 2015

As a lot of y’all know by now, I LOVE going to cover the upcoming lingerie seasons at CurveNY. It’s both a fun time to connect with designers, teachers, writers, bloggers, retailers, and PR reps that I haven’t seen in a while (or have only previously met online), and it’s an incredible opportunity to take […] Read more…

Sweets of Sweet Nothings, in watercolor

Sweet Nothings Has Had a Makeover!

Some of you may have noticed already, but Sweet Nothings has a brand-new look! I’ve wanted to give the site a refresh for a while now. My strengths lie in the fields of bra fitting, chocolate consumption, and the accumulation of ballet trivia, not so much in the fields of graphic and web design. I’m extraordinarily grateful […] Read more…

Sweet Nothings Elomia Maria Babydoll Review

Review: Maria Babydoll by Elomi

As though I couldn’t love the Maria collection more, Elomi had to go and introduce the cutest freaking sheer babydoll ever. I’m sorry, Cleo Marcie, you’re very, very cute, but this one has ruffles. No contest. Note: I purchased this piece with my own money under my real name. All thoughts and opinions are my […] Read more…

Sweet Nothings Elomi Maria Basque Review

Review: Maria Bridal Collection by Elomi

When I was planning the bridal boudoir editorial featured last month on Burnett’s Boards, I knew I wanted to make sure to feature lingerie pieces that are available in a range of back sizes. After all, curvy really describes a shape, not a size. There are women who are very slim with small ribcages who […] Read more…

Bridal Boudoir- Sweet Nothings wears Masquerade Serenity Collection, Harlow & Fox "Eleanor" Robe

Review: Serenity Bridal Range by Masquerade

Earlier this year Panache offered to send me Masquerade’s brand-new “Serenity” bridal range for review and for inclusion in the bridal boudoir editorial published last week on Burnett’s Boards. Masquerade always creates incredibly special bridal collections; past season styles like Tiffany, Hestia, and Deity offered the D+ bride luxurious lingerie in a variety of shapes and […] Read more…

Curve Fall/Winter Trend Report 2014- Sweet Nothings & Miss Underpinnings

CurveNY Returns with Spring/Summer 2015 Collections

It’s that time of year again! The Fall/Winter collections we saw back in February are just beginning to ship to retailers, and now it’s time to preview the Spring/Summer collections for next year! Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets bewildered by talking about Fall/Winter styles, in August, as being “last season.” I’m […] Read more…

Hopeless Lingerie has been on my indie lingerie wishlist for years now.  Designed and handmade entirely in Melbourne, Australia by designer Gabrielle Adamidis, each collection features extraordinary pieces that feel both daring and bold as well as organic and natural.
