Seamless intimate apparel is the “lovechild” of hosiery and lingerie. It’s also the name of one of my favorite songs by the Supremes.  I’ve taken note over the years how powerful lingerie companies like Spanx and Commando have entered the hosiery market. Melding the technology of hosiery machines with the design detail of lingerie has become lucrative and without the yarns and technology developed by the hosiery industry shapewear would be all seams and discomfort.

In my early days while I shopped in Europe I was a hosiery junkie, buying Fogal and Wolford hosiery every time I touched down in London or Paris.  These two brands in particular were pioneers and introduced me to luxury for the legs.  I love Fogal for … Read more

La Costa Del Algodón on Lingerie Briefs

Putting together this post involved quite a few “I want that…I need that…how do I not have that?!” moments.  I had the pleasure of recently discovering the Barcelona-based brand La Costa del Algodón, which specializes in loungewear with a vintage-inspired twist.

Flowing fabrics with floral patterns defines this label that creates kaftans, robes and nightgowns that transition beautifully from inside the bedroom to out and about.  The lines between sleepwear and ready-to-wear are heavily blurred, as the founders Chipi Tornos and Isabel Pedemonte explain that “each woman decides when and where to wear our creations.”  The styles are bohemian, a bit beachy and entirely romantic.  You can see the heavy vintage influence in the designs, which results in a collection that … Read more

WE WANT ANOTHER REVOLUTION

R-E-V-O-L-U-T-I-O-N-A-R-Y……say the word out loud. How does it make you feel?  It gives me goosebumps because it describes people who are fearless, radical, avant-garde, inspirational and on the forefront of a movement to make things better for all of us, whether it be political or creative.  I went to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit, and happened upon another exhibit entitled “WE WANT A REVOLUTION”, about Black women artists in the 60’s and 70’s and it made me wonder if I’d ever been a part of a revolution or is my time yet to come.

Revolutionaries are often forgotten or never acknowledged for their contributions, but their impact is nonetheless felt. When we think of shapewear we think of … Read more

Botica Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Today’s Gallery features Botica Lingerie, where “nude is the color of the soul”.  Once you see their work, you will understand precisely what this means and how closely the brand abides by this credo.  You will also immediately see that this label represents erotica, the avant-garde and female sensuality.

This luxury label celebrates the ritual of wearing lingerie as “one of the most intimate and erotic delights of a woman”.  That is certainly the case when wearing sheer, second-skin intimates made from silk tulle.

This Madrid-based label is handmade by women and for women, and is designed by Mexican fashion designer Andrea Pimentel.

The collection featured here is called Powder and is inspired by the delights of the human touch, imagining … Read more

Summer UnDressing

By TINA WILSON

I get so revved up about the beach that I start packing long before the first summer weekend begins on Fire Island.  Sharing a beach house with numerous people requires a wee bit of discretion with regard to how much of yourself you let “hang out”, even among the dearest of friends.

Packing for the beach house is a dilemma as I must pack for the summer and leave whatever has been chosen in the house for the duration.  There are different moments at the beach as there are in the city and cooking, lounging, exercising, and socializing require well thought out undergarments. Ultimately beach life is about comfort for the body and soul, so shapewear as we know it is forbidden.… Read more
