I am not sure what excites me most about Hanro’s Laura gown, this brilliant yellow or the easy lounge shape, both of which defy old school sleepwear rules. Personally, I laud both the color and the comfort factor. I already know that the cotton modal fabric will be incomparable in softness and unique in its construction.

That’s why I know that Maison Lejaby is on target with their product development strategy, particularly for the USA market. Exploiting the success of their 3-part bra sales, this season they have expanded the availability of this particular shape to at least 10 collections. This has increased the breath of fashion choices under their brand umbrella for large breasted women, a major asset once they find their preferred fit.… Read More

UK-based Fréolic, which was created by Evgeniya Kharaim in 2016, is a premium lingerie brand that’s making the ‘bespoke’ shopping experience a whole lot more accessible.
