Review: Playful Promises Kylie Bodysuit

[I purchased this bodysuit under my real name with my own money. Playful Promises is not affiliated with this review, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.] Playful Promises are doing some of the most exciting work in the independent lingerie world right now, and I don’t just mean their quarter-cup cage bras. There is not […] Read more…

What I’m Reading this Week

I haven’t shared a link roundup in a while, but as we head further into the heat and humidity of August (at least in NYC, y’all this weather is my personal nightmare), I thought it might be fun to share some good stuff to browse while we’re huddled desperately in front of the air conditioner.

2016 Trend Alert: The Year of the Lingerie Cape

[Some images NSFW] Last year the lingerie geniuses at Kiss Me Deadly unveiled a limited edition lingerie cape loosely inspired by Game of Thrones but mostly inspired by DRAMA, a quality in lingerie to which I wholeheartedly subscribe (see here and here and here and here and to infinity and beyond).

The Ones to Watch: D+ Lingerie News for 2016

Holiday Gift Guide: Lingerie Inspired by Agent Carter

In some respects choosing pieces for the Agent Carter gift guide to accompany the Agent Carter editorial has been the easiest of the three, because at the time her story is set (late 1940s moving into the 1950s), women’s lingerie was starting to take on the shapes we’re familiar with today: underwire bras, garments like girdles […] Read more…

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…
