Skarlett Blue Innocent Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I think it is particularly prescient to focus today on Skarlett Blue’s new Innocent collection. Originally planning this blog for an April publication, it was, obviously apparent to me, that delayed deliveries, closed stores, and malleable moods required a change of direction. But, having chatted recently with a multitude of specialty lingerie stores, coupled with slow re-openings across the country, timing now seems more realistic. One fact that has surfaced is the increased consumer interest in loungewear. Although retailers are bleeding – I certainly do not want to downplay the state of affairs – many buyers have told me that loungewear business is (somewhat) holding the fort.… ...Read more

Parfait Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

We were all set to post a Parfait Lingerie Spotlight this month about the new Elissa bridal bustier; but, alas, ‘the best laid plans often go awry’. We are deep into what should have been a robust wedding season, but the Coronavirus took a full-frontal attack on the ‘old normal’. We have been forced to adapt. Those of us who changed lanes quickly have reaped some rewards. As such, Parfait lingerie, doing a 180 on their marketing plans, reset their course quickly.… ...Read more

Lately I find myself circling back to brands I had previously featured here in the Gallery, and Taryn Winters is one of those brands I was pleased to recently revisit

Today’s post takes a look at the Spring/Summer 2020 collection, that showcases two distinct groups; one consisting of dreamy silk chiffon and the other made from classic Italian tulle.

If you’re familiar with the brand, you can still see that the designer remains influenced by her background as a dancer. … ...Read more

ONPOINT Manufacturing featured on Lingerie Briefs

It is during a seminar at the Premiere Vision NY in January of 2020 that OPM (OnPoint Manufacturing) was mentioned by a panelist, Tara St James, a fashion industry activist and founder of the Re: Source Library. Armed with the curiosity of ten cats, I dashed to their booth compelled to find out more.

The Rya Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

 I have had a major love affair with Rya Collection since they launched their first sheer robe! A surprise for me at Curve NYC this year was that they are finally launching a plus size collection. My bank account may not be nearly as excited as I am.

What wasn’t a surprise was that Rya Collection’s plus-size pieces play to the same strengths as their core size pieces. The line is full of droolworthy robes and gowns with Art Deco inspired trims and sheer embroidered fabrics.… ...Read more

A few weeks prior to the pandemic shutdown, I was scheduled to visit the Komar headquarters in NJ to work with the Le Mystere team on an idea sparked during the Curve NY show in February: Technology and its impact on innovation in Lingerie. I was inspired, initially, by their presentation of the new Velvet Mesh Collection (above) using Sens-Elast technology, now on hold for later delivery next year. It was that collection that reminded me of 3D engineering.… ...Read more

Wacoal B-Smooth panty and wireless bra as featured on Lingerie Briefs

A few days ago, entering week 6 of quarantine in our house, my husband came into the kitchen and announced he had just dressed for the day. He was wearing his bathrobe.  I was a bit perplexed, so he explained that he had just put on clean underwear. This actually inspired me to write this blog about Wacoal’s extensive panty collection. Fact is, despite our at home descent into “not really dressing” every day panties still should (I hope) be a commodity requiring daily updating.… ...Read more
