Portia by Curvy Kate

Review: “Portia” by Curvy Kate

Apart from “Emily”, which I tried last Spring, I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to try Curvy Kate‘s nonpadded styles.  I’ve tried a few Showgirl styles just for fun, but I never wound up wearing them very much: padded bras are rarely my first choice, half-cups even less so, and I found the styles […] Read more…

Brand Overview: Elomi Lingerie

I’m really happy to be writing this brand overview now (well, abbreviated one).  For one thing, Elomi and I have both expanded our sizes (zing!) so now I can wear the brand, and for another, it’s just getting so danged GOOD.  I feel pretty confident saying that, for the most part, women who wear sizes 30-38 D-G […] Read more…
