The Commando Bride™ bride on Lingerie Briefs

The minute I saw the new Commando™ bridal underwear collection, I knew it was a winner. The design direction, in tandem with the brand’s quest for modernity is right in line with the evolution in the bridal lingerie industry: simplicity over frou frou. These pieces are fun shower and bridesmaid gifts, particularly for a woman who enjoys tongue and cheek fashion. As owner Kerry O’Brian has said “I want them to smile when they slip on their Commando.”  Who is the Commando bride? … Read More

I am sitting here this freezing January afternoon, intent on writing a blog about the startling beauty that is Lise Charmel bridal lingerie. I imagine a winter affair; ice, blankets, wine, and romance. I think about the stunning film, Dr. Zhivago and the sensual chemistry that Omar sheriff and Julie Christie stirred in their award winning roles as the star-crossed lovers, Yuri and Lara. And even though the story is one of deprivation, the depth of character and the seductive screen play are a study in elegance.… Read More

Ellipse Bridal Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

We flew to Southern California this past weekend to attend the wedding party of my son’s sister-in-law, Megan Best. In true Megan style, it was just a whole lot of fun; a block party held outside her family’s home with 200 people eating, drinking and dancing in the street. Casual as it was; a buffet style barbecue, wine and beer stations, a candy bar, ice cream carts and even a bouncy house for the kids, there was also a chorus of groomsmen, bridesmaids and a vintage style wedding dress.… Read More

Apilat Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Our niche in this Gallery is representing luxury lingerie from designers around the world, and this week we present the Ukrainian brand Apilat.  Founded as a wedding dress label in 2012 by sisters Galyna and Lyubov, it has since added bridal lingerie to its offerings in 2015.  Consistent with most bridal lingerie designs, their works are sensual, traditional and romantic, but what sets them apart from the mainstream is their precise handwork and use of exceptional fabrics.

As you will see from the images below, Apilat’s use of lace and how it is paired with silk is striking. … Read More


Ellis wedding dress featured on Lingerie Briefs

A few weeks ago I reached out to several intimate brands that are known for their use of Leavers lace and asked them to provide me with some insight into the back story on this unique form of artistry. In particular, I am interested in Calais lace. Produced in Northern France, it is the birthright of lingerie and unfortunately a dying industry. (More about this in a later blog) One response I received was from Maison Lejaby who shared their OUI bridal collection with me. These pieces are exquisite, quintessential French luxury lingerie; the essence of the Maison Lejaby brand.  … Read More


Georgina Ivory bridal slip from NKiMode on Lingerie Briefs

I’m leaving Mexico this week, returning to NY, my kids and the market. Two very distinct Cabo scenes have come to mind in the past few days, probably because of my effort to actually go out for dinner and to the beach before I leave.  One of these spectacles is the number of wedding events that take place here and the other is the fascinating dichotomy of swimwear peppering the beaches. I’ll save the beach perspective for later this week. Today is all about Bridal Lingerie, and to be specific, NKiMode’s extensive range of styles for brides and their various wedding celebrations.… Read More
