Review: Playful Promises Juliet Harness Bra, Brief, and Girdle

[Disclosure: Playful Promises, Dear Bowie, and Fiore generously provided these pieces for review. I was not compensated for this post, and all thoughts and opinions are my own. ] Playful Promises has been on my they-don’t-make-my-size-but-I-admire-from-afar list for quite some time. This UK-based indie brand makes lingerie that feels vintage-inspired yet modern at the same time; […] Read more…

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

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”.

Sweet Nothings reviews Claudette Fishnet Rouge Noir

Review: Claudette Fishnet in Rouge Noir

[Claudette generously provided this set for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.] I’ve wanted this set pretty much since FOREVER. Full-bust lingerie can skew really frilly or lacy or ornate or whimsical (all of which are great!), but Fishnet is COOL. One of the first things I did when my bra size started […] Read more…
