The Ones to Watch: D+ Lingerie News for 2016

So, I didn’t do a full recap of August’s Curve show for the Spring/Summer 2016 collections like I said I would.

Holiday Gift Guide: Lingerie Inspired by Irene Adler

Yesterday I shared photos inspired by the elegant, resourceful Irene Adler from the original Sherlock Holmes story “A Scandal in Bohemia”. I had so much fun thinking about the story and how I could use pieces from some of my favorite contemporary independent designers to evoke the cosmopolitan, artistic, and passionate world of the opera singer who […] Read more…

Sweet Nothings reviews Parfait Danielle Peacock

Review: Parfait Danielle Longline Bra and Shortie

This is one of my favorite full-bust lingerie designs from the last couple of years: the Danielle longline collection by Parfait.

Fall 2015 Full-Bust Lingerie Wishlist

This week has been a whirl of lingerie activity as brands, buyers, and press arrive in New York City for the seasonal trade shows. I always get into a weird sort of lingerie-time-zone confusion: it’s hot outside (so very hot), Fall/Winter styles are starting to arrive in stores, I’m looking at Spring/Summer 2016, which won’t […] 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…

Full-Bust on a Budget: My Favorite Bras For $49 or Less

The more bras I’ve had the chance to buy, the more I’ve become aware of the relationship between price, fit, design, and quality. The general rule of thumb is that you can usually get 2 or 3 of those characteristics together in one bra, but not all four: you might love the price, fit, and design […] Read more…
