My Custom Corset Journey: Part 1

I’ve been wanting to cover corsets in a little more detail on the blog for some time now. While there are many amazing (and far superior and more knowledgeable) resources available online, from The Lingerie Addict’s corsetry archives to the phenomenal Lucy’s Corsetry, which I could literally read for hours, I’ve recently begun receiving more and […] Read more…

Sophia Bra, Suspender Belt, and Thong by Bravissimo.

Sweet Nothing Du Jour 10/13/15: Sophia Collection by Bravissimo

When I first encountered Bravissimo back in 2008, my exposure to full-bust bras was limited to beige minimizer bras, and my exposure to matching lingerie sets was limited to Victoria’s Secret. As a result, exploring the Bravissimo website was literally life-changing– I was astonished by the range of colors, styles, and shapes in D+ sizes. […] Read more…

Yes, this is technically a sports bra, but if you're concerned about stability, this bra will do the trick. I've mentioned it previously as the only bra I can run long distances in without breaking my skin, but it could also work as an option on a day you want to be wire-free but also plan to run errands, do chores, or otherwise be active.
