Charnos Lingerie Sienna Bra to a J cup on Lingerie Briefs

The plus-size lingerie marketed can sometimes feel like it’s dominated by the major players, so it’s fun to occasionally reintroduce ourselves to the plethora of options out there. Charnos Lingerie was one of the first brands that I tried when I was trying to figure out my real lingerie size. I remember liking them a lot, but as I realized I was larger than a G cup I moved on to other … Read More

Elomi Sachi strappy plunge bra on Lingerie Briefs

I was going through my Instagram feed the other day when I saw a post by a local friend lamenting the lack of standard bras. “What do you do with all the extra straps? How do you get into them?” she asked. In many ways, I sympathize with her. I try a lot of bras for work and I have been the person consulting promotional images trying to figure out how to … Read More

Jenny Rieu collaboration with Dita Von Teese Lingerie & Marjolaine through Glamuse on Lingerie BriefsJenny Rieu collaboration with Dita Von Teese Lingerie & Marjolaine through Glamuse

On the surface, Jenny Rieu and I don’t have a ton in common. However, as I worked with her on this column this month I began to see that she felt the same way I frequently feel: that working in the lingerie industry had forced her to confront and come to love her body in a way that might not … Read More

We both love old buildings, finding historic treasures in our respective cities and giving vintage things a new life rather than finding new things to create more waste. When the Marilupa Instagram account popped … Read More

Oh La La Cheri and Real Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Every year, the New Orleans Mardi Gras season starts with the same parade: Joan of Arc rides through the French Quarter on her birthday, while the rest of the moving drama behind her reenacts her life story. The parade happens at twilight, which means that by the time Joan gets to the cathedral the light is just low enough to create a glow around her angelic crown, ermine robe and her gleaming … Read More

Sculptress Plus size bras on Lingerie Briefs

I didn’t really appreciate basic bras when I was younger, mostly because I lived in colder climates where your clothing hid your lingerie choices. Now that I live in New Orleans, I’ve quickly learned to appreciate the flexibility that a great basic bra provides. Weather here can vary wildly in the winter, from the 81 degree day we had last week to the 45 degree days we’ve been experiencing this week. When … Read More

Bedhead pajamas to size 26 on Lingerie Briefs

I hadn’t contemplated becoming a pajama person until this past summer, when I found myself chasing down a neighbor’s gigantic bulldog (complete with post-vet neck cone) in my front garden while wearing nothing more than a slightly sheer vintage slip. Since I work from home, I often find myself not getting dressed until it’s required to leave my house. However, now that I live in a busy neighborhood, a lot more people … Read More
