Sweet Nothings reviews Comexim Arizona. Photo: Studio Rezin

I love being proved wrong. For as long as I’ve been writing Sweet Nothings (3 years in May, eep!), I have stood firm in my padded-bras-are-terrible stance. Well, they’re generally terrible for me: I’ve worn non-padded bras almost exclusively since I first started figuring out what sizes and styles I liked best. I’ve tried padded […] Read more…

Slips Are Awesome, Let Me Talk To You About Them

Because they’re wonderful, I should have talked about them back in January because they’re so useful in the winter, I’ve read some concerning comments in clothing reviews and message boards along the lines of “no one under 30 or in their 30s wears slips” and I just, y’all, I PROTEST. Slips are EXCELLENT. Here’s what’s […] Read more…

Full-Bust on a Budget: My Favorite Bras For $49 or Less

The more bras I’ve had the chance to buy, the more I’ve become aware of the relationship between price, fit, design, and quality. The general rule of thumb is that you can usually get 2 or 3 of those characteristics together in one bra, but not all four: you might love the price, fit, and design […] Read more…

Review: Curvy Kate Luau Love Bikini

Nothing like a fresh onslaught of winter wind and weather to make you want to put on a bikini, am I right? Oh guess what, it’s snowing again, how new and fun, we’re all thrilled, my commute was a joy today, wheeeeeeee. It’s really unfair: right when most of us in the Northeast USA are […] Read more…

Each piece is handmade in San Francisco using fine silk and delicate lace. Designer Stephanie Bodnar specializes in using an inset lace technique, a particular challenge when working with bias-cut silk, which gives her signature pieces […] Read more…

New for 2015: 6 Exciting New Full-Bust Brands Debut

Remember how in January of 2013 I was unbelievably excited about the launch of Tutti Rouge? A lot of that excitement was because at the time, it felt like Freya, Fantasie, and Panache (and increasingly, Curvy Kate) were the only players in the full-bust game, and then along came this unabashedly cute, almost kitschy, independent brand with a strongly […] Read more…

Review: Lola Luxe Scarlet by Bravissimo

OBVIOUSLY I was going to buy this one the minute it was released. How could I not? Do you see my site artwork up there in the header? It’s LIKE THIS LINGERIE WAS MADE JUST FOR ME.
