Holiday Gift Guide: Lingerie Inspired by Miss Phryne Fisher

Yesterday I shared how I’d style the glorious Miss Fisher, but there are so many equally wonderful contemporary lingerie pieces that capture a little bit of Phryne’s magic. As with the Irene Adler gift guide, these are largely not historically accurate (Miss Fisher didn’t have underwire bras or, you know, Lycra), but I hope this gift guide shows […] Read more…

My 10 Favorite Bras

There are a LOT of bras out there. Even (and especially!) in full-bust land: the range of options in cup sizes D-K has grown so, so much in the last 10 years. So where do you start if you’re new to D+ bras? I have general suggestions of good full-bust bras I’ll offer to people […] Read more…

The Full-Bust Bride: Gorgeous D+ Bridal Lingerie

So, look, I am the first person to shriek “just because it’s white doesn’t mean it’s only for brides!” A. you can wear white lingerie any time you feel like it, even, brace yourselves, if you’re single (hello fellow singletons!), and B. even if you are getting married, there is no reason you HAVE to wear […] Read more…
