Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 6/25/12

This will appeal to about three of my readers. You know who you are. Someone at the Royal Ballet is awesome at social media. Earlier this year they did a live broadcast of the entirety of one of their company classes. Did I stay up until 2:00 a.m. watching the whole thing? Yes. Of course […] Read more…

Recommended Reading: Busted! By Ali Cudby

If I had to choose a gift for a teenage girl (or her mom), I’d be that awkward friend who gave her this book. Y’all, it’s so great.  It really is.  It’s short, sweet, matter-of-fact, and astoundingly comprehensive on the subject of boobs and bras. Ali Cudby is the founder and CEO of FabFoundations™, a bra-fitting […] Read more…

Key Lime Pie

I am a giant brat about baking things from a mix or a can or a jar. I get all smug and annoying and sniffy and “I don’t BELIEVE in cake mixes” and am generally charming and wonderful, with my nose in the air declaring that pre-made/pre-packaged ingredients are cheating. That being said, if you […] Read more…

Beating the Heat: All-or-Mostly Cotton Bras

I got a request from a dear friend for an all-or-mostly-cotton shopping guide, and seriously, could the timing be any better?  In four days New York has gone from 65 degrees to 95, and the city is just one giant concrete-and-skyscraper heat-trapping hell-hole.  Sometimes.  Not always.  But I am not alone in wishing that more subway-riders […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 6/19/12

I’ve been working stupid amounts of overtime, and I can’t drink caffeine.  Let’s all laugh instead. If you don’t read Busty Girl Comics yet, you should.  The comics are funny, self-deprecating, witty, body-positive, inclusive, and fierce.  The wonderful Rampaige’s responses to reader questions, comments, and even attacks are like mini-master classes in standing up for […] Read more…

Lingerie for Smaller Busts

UPDATE: This post is now several years out of date, and some of the brands are no longer in business, but behold! I have updated it with lots of lovely new options! I am so grateful to people who have spoken to me to request posts on specific bra/boob-related subjects.  There have been some excellent […] Read more…

Sweet Saturday: A Sophisticated Pair

I want to introduce you all to A Sophisticated Pair (and encourage you to glance at the blogroll in the sidebar for more recommended reading), a lingerie shop and blog based in North Carolina.  I haven’t visited in person (yet!), but the blog is wonderful and informative, with reviews of individual bras, discussion of the retail […] Read more…

Sweets Goes Shopping: Peek Brooklyn

Holy crap, you guys.  You must go look at this RIGHT NOW: Peek Brooklyn. I am not exaggerating when I say I want every single thing.  Hosiery shopping in the U.S. for lovers of sassy lingerie/stockings can be frustrating, because sometimes it feels like you’re trapped in a desert of Spanx and control tops. I am […] Read more…
