New Kid in Town ~ Yay Panties

June 27, 2017

Yay Panties on Lingerie Briefs

When I first saw the Yay Panties brand at Curve in February, I was not sure about another panty package program; but, it’s my job to mine the market for the best in class. Whenever a newcomer surfaces, I feel compelled to do some R&D. And the marketing campaign, so critical in today’s digital world was enticing: fun, sexy and affordable underwear completely seamless and stitch free.  My 32 year old daughter, who is not a fan of underpants in general (please don’t ask) convinced me of their potential when, after trying the boy short, she raved about the fit and feel. The fabric is so malleable and soft; it’s hard to remember one is wearing undies at all.  This I can personally vouch for … Read more

Command Performance ~ Commando® Intimates

June 23, 2017

Working against cultural forces has always been a struggle for women. Growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s, was a particularly poignant era to come of age. The forces driving us forward were being held at bay by the established bylines of the times. For me, femininity never resided in the classic parameters of feminine tastes: princesses, knights on horseback, frills and ruffles. My father’s words: “Make sure you can take care of yourself” were the closest I ever came to a male directive of what I should be. I won’t deny that I had pipe-dreams at age 10, of being a ballerina. But these fantasies were never promoted in my particular familial sphere – which was probably a good thing since clearly I was … Read more

Responsible Lingerie ~ Only Hearts

Only Hearts on Lingerie Briefs

I am back on the East coast going through my semiannual transition to my NY lifestyle. Besides waking up in the middle of the night and walking in the wrong direction to the bathroom, I am also acutely aware of certain amenities available in the USA that we often take for granted even though we shouldn’t; like water. In Cabo, water delivery to our homes via the city is a constant bone of contention. The extraordinary growth in tourism without the proper infrastructure has left homeowners hi and dry, literally. When I moved to Cabo 5 years ago, water flowed regularly into our cisterns. Today, if we receive a delivery once a week, we count our blessings. Our lives revolve around avoiding the need to … Read more

Swim Briefs ~ Cabo Beachwear

June 16, 2017

Traveling back to NY from Cabo puts a bit of wrench in my writing schedule. So, today, I decided to share some of my photos, most taken by me on Medano Beach. Swimwear stores are as prevalent in Cabo as nail salons are in New York. It’s lifestyle clothing here. I am always amazed at the beachwear options and the potential of this business. Too bad the there is such a dearth of lingerie. What an opportunity. READ and SEE MORE here. . .… Read more
