CurveNY Trend Report: Spring/Summer 2015

Spring/Summer 2015 Color Trend: Periwinkle and Soft Blue

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…

Review: Maria Babydoll by Elomi

Sweet Nothings Elomia Maria Babydoll Review

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…

Review: Maria Bridal Collection by Elomi

Sweet Nothings Elomi Maria Basque Review

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…

Review: Serenity Bridal Range by Masquerade

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

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…

CurveNY Returns with Spring/Summer 2015 Collections

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

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…

Sweet Nothings Bridal Boudoir

I’m super excited to share a project from April that I collaborated on with two of NYC’s most talented wedding professionals!

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 7/25/14: Hopeless Lingerie Andie Suspender

Hopeless Andie Suspender

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. I still regret missing out on the amazing Maja harness and matching garters, and I […] Read more…

Review: Panache Sport Top

Sweet Nothings Panache Sports Top Review

Back in January I shared my thoughts on the super-popular Panache sports bra, and you might recall that they were pretty glowing.  I seriously have four different colors of this bra in my lingerie drawer right now, and I kind of want to buy four more because my size is changing and some of mine are worn out. […] Read more…

My Favorite New Styles for Fall/Winter 2014

Elomi Bijou Soiree

As I’m beginning to make my appointments to see the upcoming Spring/Summer 2015 collections at Curve next month, Holly’s recent article for The Lingerie Addict reminded me that I never shared some of my top picks for Fall/Winter 2014! Cecily and I covered some of the trends for this season after the show in February, […] Read more…

Exclusive Sneak Peek: Angela Friedman Fall/Winter 2014 Knickers

Angela Friedman Adrienne Ruffle Panties Sweet Nothings

I’m really, really, REALLY excited to share an early preview of two styles from Angela Friedman’s Fall/Winter 2014 Muse collection: the high-waist “Adrienne” ruffle panties and the “Laurel” ruffle bikini panties. Full disclosure right off the bat: I received these as a holiday present from Angela, because we’re buds and neighbors. She gave me two […] Read more…

Review: Megan Longline Bra and Brief by Elomi

Sweet Nothings Elomi Megan Longline Bra Review

Last February I decided to special-order some of my favorite upcoming Spring/Summer styles through A Sophisticated Pair. Erica offers a very generous special order/return policy, and while I often wait for certain pieces to go on sale (or for me to impulse purchase them during a Netflix-induced internet spiral), I knew I wanted to get a jump […] Read more…

Summer Snoozing: Light and Breezy Pajamas and Loungewear

Come Out & Play Babydoll in Bamboo/Dawn by Between the Sheets

Well, the East Coast is heading surely into summer after a long winter and a (thankfully) long spring, and as someone who doesn’t sleep well in the heat, I’m looking for pajamas and loungewear that are both cute and cool.  I can’t really sleep with anything long on my legs anyway, so summer pajamas are […] Read more…
