Andres Sarda Fashion Swimwear on Lingerie Briefs

Somebody at Andres Sarda must have been listening to Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” on repeat while creating this runway collection.  Inspired by all things 1980s, the Spring/Summer 2018 swim collection was heavily styled with legwarmers, shoulder pads, Robert Palmer-esque models (remember “Simply Irresistible”?), and bold colors.  If you’re able to look beyond the eye-catching details that make this runway show as period-specific as it was, you will see the foundations for a classic … Read More

Curvy Kate Maya print swimwear on Lingerie Briefs

If there is one thing that I think many curvy women have in common, it’s a fear of actually getting their swimwear wet. Unlike bras, ill-fitting swimwear can go bad in so many ways once it actually hits the water.

In most of these images, bathing suits are the clothing du jour.  Cabo is a … Read More

Magicsuit Swimwear romper on Lingerie Briefs

I am not in Mexico at the moment; I came north for the holidays and to prepare for the fall 2018 market. It’s a bit counter intuitive, braving the northeastern weather patterns while most people are escaping south for a sun soaked reprieve. It is, in fact, the beginning of the Swimwear season.

The Little Black Dress

The Little Black Dress, made famous by Coco Chanel when she introduced it in Vogue in 1926, has endured because it is an icon of good taste. This ubiquitous style has served for almost a century as a wardrobe staple that a woman can dress up or dress down. A symbol of understated elegance accessible at many income levels has positioned it as a classic fashion necessity. Personally, I have owned some … Read More
