My Top 5 Lingerie Purchases of 2019

Welcome to 2020, the world is still…well, let us do as one angry site visitor accused us of doing several years ago and continue to focus on the frivolous. I’m streeeetching the definition of “lingerie” for this year’s post (you can also check out 2015, 2016, and 2018‘s top 5 lists) to include anything lingerie, […] Read more…

Holiday Lingerie! Festive Styles and Where to Buy Them

A quick programming note: my budget did not include a big holiday editorial series this year, but part of that is because I have a different project I’m pitching to a few other outlets, so hopefully I’ll be able to share that soon! If you’d like to revisit previous year’s editorials, you can see them […] Read more…

60 Fuller Bust Bras under $50

It’s hard to avoid talking about price when you’re looking at DD+ bras. It can feel unfair, if you’ve always worn A-DD cup sizes, that you have to pay more to get the quality, fit, and comfort you like in DD+ sizes.

While I’ve spent most of January and February in New York hunkered down under blankets, fighting off a cold inside and the bitter cold outside, I’ve had the chance to do a bit of a closet purge. I’ve accumulated a lot (A LOT) of lingerie over the last few years, and both my size and […] Read more…

My Top 5 Lingerie Purchases of 2018

I was on hiatus in January of last year, so it’s been a while since I looked back at a year’s worth of lingerie purchases (although it was cool to revisit 2015 and 2016).

Lingerie Looks for Holiday Parties: Underwear and Outerwear

I’ve never devoted a ton of time/photography budget to “solution” pieces: nothing wrong with them, they’re just not what makes me excited about lingerie.
