The relationship between men and lingerie has always been interesting. The more modern view is that lingerie is empowering to women and invokes a deep sense of female self-worth. And while that still holds true for women, men also have evolving views on lingerie, as the intention behind lingerie has certainly shifted over the years and centuries.

Conflicting Roles

Looking back at the history of lingerie, it’s interesting to find that open-crotch underwear was the norm for women in the 1800s. At the time, men wore closed crotch underwear.… Read More

Calida Lingerie Sustainable Nature Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

One cannot speak of sustainability in the world of intimate apparel without mentioning Calida. I have focused on this aspect of the brand’s heritage more than once in this column. They have been an industry force in this domain “long before it was cool” Their credo: “Sustainability should not be a fashion, but a promise” is reflected in its many faceted collections.

Kilo Brava paisley print Mesh Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Ruminating for the past week or so about Kilo Brava’s Holiday 21 collection I’ve been trying to put my finger on its contemporary tempo. Several words come to mind that solidify the brand’s mission for this delivery: retro inspired, vintage style, pop colors, paisley prints, semi-sheer, eco-conscious, diverse, inclusive, size friendly, sexy, comfortable intimates that are personally empowering. Eight new groups are now showcased in Kilo Brava’s Spotlight this month: Mesh, Printed and Jacquard Satin, Embroidered, Flocked, Lacey, Modal and Bamboo knit.

Red Bubble Botticelli's Birth of Venus Leggings Designed by Art History as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I’m taking a long, hard look at Botticelli’s Birth of Venus (you know…the goddess of love standing on her half-shell). Or rather–I’m seeing her face, blown up and maneuvered over the knee and thigh of a pair of polyester-elastane stretch leggings, her golden tresses cascading down the other leg. This is but one example among the hundreds (no, make that thousands) of pairs of graphic, photo-printed stretch leggings now bombarding the market. Picasso’s Demoiselles d’Avignon? Check. Mona Lisa? Check. Jackson Pollock? Check. Magritte, Kandinsky, Dali, Vermeer, Van Gogh?… Read More

Christine Silk Faberge Devore velour kimono and Diva chemise in Purple Passion as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Recently, I took a trip to the Met Cloisters in NYC. The venue is not new to me but having just finished the biography of John D Rockefeller and reminded of his son’s obsession with medieval art, I was anxious to see, once again, the renowned Unicorn Tapestries. The confluence of grandeur, dignity, and ambition represented by this proud bastion perfectly captures the complex character of this famous family. I took a lot of notes at the museum.  I never know when such an experience will spark an idea for a Lingerie “Brief”.… Read More

There is no doubt that having a high-end beautiful photo goes a long way in differentiating your brand, connecting with your customer and making more sales. In fact 75% of online shoppers rely on photos to make their decision on a potential purchase.

But all photos are not created equally.  There are photos that exemplify the brand’s story and there are photos that show what the product looks like.  Which photos have the most impact?  The answer is all of them.… Read More
