We’re all adjusting to this strange new world we live in for the foreseeable future. Life has blended into one long blur of working from home, wearing stretchy pants and worrying about whether we can find the groceries we need at the store. We’re all wondering what happens when we run out of toilet paper. It’s a terrifying new world out there. Inside, it’s a family affair and Bedhead Pajamas are a perfect #StayatHome wardrobe solution.

I’ve been a big personal fan of Bedhead Pajamas for years and have purchased many pairs from them.… ...Read more

Ulla Popken Plus size lounewear & swimwear as seen on Lingerie Briefs

I had never heard of Ulla Popken before I came across their booth at Curve, even though they are popular in Germany and the EU. Plus size brands are rare in the EU, but Ulla Popken makes pieces exclusively for sizes 12 to 38! Their booth was a sea of fun prints, innovative loungewear and mix and match pieces that were both playful and sophisticated.

The Underargument: sustainable feminism, as featured on Lingerie Briefs

There are days when I feel like most of the women I know are anxious. It’s everywhere, even at the Curve show in NYC where several of us discussed various forms of eco-anxiety and the stress that comes from running a business as a woman. Many of us battle various forms of anxiety on a weekly or daily basis and find nothing but platitudes in response.

The Underargument is a brand that is in some ways more about the message than about the lingerie.… ...Read more

Royce Lingerie wirefree Maisie Bra as featured on Lingerie Briefs

 I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about the value of comfort in bras. I used to be all about aesthetics when it came to lingerie, but over the past year I’ve found my collection expanding into more comfortable options that don’t have wires and are easy to throw on. Unfortunately, many “comfort” bras are not that attractive. Why can’t we have god looking bras that also are fun bras? In my mind, Royce Lingerie is one of the companies who tackles that challenge especially well.… ...Read more

Ewa Bien Diamond collection, environmentally friendly lingerie made from recycled plastic bottles in cooperation with Inter Spitzen AG in their quest for sustainability as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Environmentally friendly initiatives in the fashion industry are often discussed and praised, but rarely are we given such an immediate and dramatic reminder of how needed they are than we have over the past few weeks. The fires in Australia are horrible beyond measure, costing countless animal lives and displacing huge numbers of people. They’ve also harmed the environment permanently by causing damage that the landscape may never be able to recover from.

If people my age and our children want to have even a minimally healthy planet to live on, companies and individuals need to act now to produce dramatic and fast changes in the industry.… ...Read more

Sugar Candy Lux bralette & Sugar Candy Crush bralette in denim as featured on Lingerie BriefsI discovered Sugar Candy bralettes about a year ago due to a chronic health issue. I had developed an intolerance for underwired bras. I can still wear them and I do frequently, but I went from someone who could basically sleep in one to someone who has about a 6 hour tolerance for one under the best circumstances. While my health issue is minor and treatable, my adjusted circumstances gave me a small amount of understanding of people who just can’t deal with wires for various reasons.… ...Read more

Polish bra company Nessa Lingerie as featured on Lingerie BriefsNessa

Polish bras are having a moment. Witness the recent New York Times article that focused on them.

The year I got into buying well-fitting bras seriously coincided with the first time Polish bras became popular with a niche market of full-busted and plus-size customers. It was kind of the wild west of bra buying then. People would form groups on Facebook to swap sizing tips and bras that didn’t fit, since returning a bra to Poland was often cost prohibitive.… ...Read more
