For months now (maybe years), I’ve longed to profile La Fille d’O, the most daring, visionary, body-savvy, fit-savvy, and also fashion-savvy among today’s avant garde lingerie providers (and there are plenty of them). Whatever you think underwear is supposed to be, this indie Belgian lingerie wholesaler-etailer-retailer is here to dispute your premise. Yet I hesitated to write it up. La Fille has so much going on—an electrifying inventory that re-prioritizes the erogenous zones and tests their limits–that I was left stymied. What to include?… Read More

I am not particularly fond of blog lists rounding up the years gift ideas or proffering opinion on what are the best intimates in the market. These judgements are personal, a reflection of the authors tastes. We are a platform of merchandising information, not reviews. It is never our intention to postulate.

When we first introduced the Skarlett Blue brand to this platform in 2015, we christened their Minx collection as “girly with a dollup of sass”. Combining a sexy lace allure with everyday function provided a Skarlett Blue signature that has prevailed. Today, Minx remains a key performer in the Skarlett Blue stable boasting extended color and size availability.

So, it is with great excitement that the arrival of their newest Minx iteration, the Minx Multi-Way T-Shirt Bra is now in stock.… Read More
Natori has launched their acclaimed Feathers Contour Bra in Full Figure sizes. This is manna to my ears as we, members of the fuller bust society, have lamented for years our inability to partake in the combined comfort and charisma of the long-time proclaimed top selling bra in the USA. The Feathers retail phenomenon paved the way for this size expansion. The original design of a sexy, seamless plunge t-shirt bra detailed with Natori’s signature lace remains intact. Adding additional coverage, as well as technical details necessary for a fuller cup, the Feathers Full Figure Contour Bra is as sexy, as well as supportive for sizes 30-42, DD-H cups.… Read More

Whether a woman seeks lift, more cleavage or less coverage, these two bikini tops provide the renown Freya support for women 30-38, D-L cups. Both swim tops interchange easily with the two bikini choices ranging in sizes XS-XXL.… Read More
