Jane Woolrich Bridal Lingerie as Featured on Lingerie Briefs

This season the bridal business is burgeoning. Wedding plans surge as the pandemic subsides. That’s good news for the Intimate Apparel business. As I have said before:

“There is an alchemy between the Lingerie and Bridal Industries. Both worlds are devoted to the feminine self. The products revealed in this space are about beauty and self-esteem; their purpose to bring pleasure, passion, and gratification to a woman’s life.”

In this post, I … Read More

I have decided to split my market report in two parts because the Evolution and Curve NY show, although similar in their color/ print/ and shape reveal, had two very different vibes. To be perfectly honest, timing required that I debrief from the smaller exposition first.  Evolution was a limited array of boutique/ luxury brands portrayed in an intimate space. It started one day earlier than Curve NY, which I will … Read More

I have had multiple conversations with specialty stores during this time during the Coronavirus lock-down. The out of the box initiatives they have launched to ignite their businesses are inspiring.

Curve NY A/W 2024: My Take

By ELLEN LEWISAubade at Curve NY featured on Lingerie Briefs

Without a doubt, the foundations business is a force at the Curve NY show.  It is a showcase of practical, functional, solution based, and fashionable bras and panties. However the prevalence of sleepwear and loungewear, traditional, eclectic, elegant and commercial can not be ignored.

Adding to this mix is the networking element, the extraordinary … Read More

Aubade sexy lingerie as featured for Holiday 2023 on Lingerie Briefs

This editorial was originally inspired by my love of the Justin Timberlake song, SexyBack. Then I realized that perhaps the words might prove “uncomfortable” to some readers or worse yet, passé. Would anyone get it? So, I moved on to the obvious, sexy lingerie is back on the fashion radar and, after all, it’s also the beginning of the Holiday season, so why not? I emailed multiple brands asking for an image … Read More

Curve NY: My Perspective

By ELLEN LEWISCurve New York lingerie - featured on Lingerie Briefs

A Brief summary of the Curve Ny show: ENERGY.  For tried and true merchants, there’s nothing better than live interaction, face to face meetings and touching the merchandise. I got positive feedback: satisfied buyers, satisfied brands. Of course, there was some pushback, but how else do we rise to new challenges. Traffic was definitely up. This show was larger than the February show.  The product mix was somewhat eclectic. Barbie … Read More
