Featuring ~ Trashy Diva
Submitted by Candice Gwinn, owner of Trashy Diva in New Orleans, Louisiana
My clothing company, Trashy Diva, expanded to include a fully-stocked lingerie shop shortly after Hurricane Katrina. It became clear to me that women wanted to see a bigger selection of beautiful intimates that just wasn’t being found in the French Quarter. I’ve always been a fan of corsetry and carried a large selection of traditional Victorian-inspired, steel boned corsets in our dress shop. So, naturally, I loved the idea of stocking even more undergarments!
As you may know, the Trashy Diva brand is based on retro style, and although we don’t make most of the lingerie that we stock, we are passionate about well-crafted styles in fine fabrics that get their inspiration from bygone eras. We’ve worked to significantly expand our selections in the past year by opening our second lingerie shop on Magazine Street, and our customers really appreciate that they now have two locations for both fashion and fitting.
We’ve also made it a priority to stock a wider variety of sizes, including cup sizes A through G and band sizes 28 through 40. And being in New Orleans, we carry an assortment of fun accessories as well. From gloves and petticoats to pasties and beaded bras, we can bring out the carnival spirit in anyone!
Trashy Diva has featured vignettes from local burlesque performers and has also recently established itself as a host for bachelorette parties at both lingerie stores. Contact Trashy Diva to book your event or to learn more about the available packages
