A little addendum on last month’s Kilo Brava campaign. I am a product of the Boomer generation, but I pride myself on keeping abreast of the cultural vibes in the younger cosmos.

Kilo Brava Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Given that “Tiger King” is the show entertaining the nation right now, it’s perfect (prrrfect) timing that we feature the brand Kilo Brava, whose headquarters is a handful of miles far from the infamous Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue center AND their current loungewear collection features an original tiger print!  Clearly someone was channeling what was going to be big in 2020 (and really, who could have guessed).

Kilo Brava is a lingerie and loungewear brand based in Tampa, Florida created by Kristin Bear, the former head of design at Cosabella.… Read More
