Passion and Color. That was the theme of my senior thesis on Vincent Van Gogh as an Art History major in college. Specifically, I was mesmerized by the irreverent brushstrokes, the deep shadows through which yellow exploded from the canvas. Was it hope buried in his furied mind? Impoverished and rejected in his lifetime, today Van Gogh is revered for his work. For me, the love affair with his paintings and his story has reverberated throughout the years since I discovered his genius.… Read More

If you like your lingerie bold, fun, and with extra sparkle, then Love & Swans is a name you need to know. This independent Russian brand launched in February last year; this year, co-founder Maria was invited to feature in the 30 Under 30: Fashion list by Forbes Russia. This is a lingerie designer who’s going places!
Love & Swans is quite unlike any other lingerie brand I’ve seen before. Its focus is on heavily-embroidered embellishment – and I do mean heavily! First, their signature sheer mesh is embroidered with a wide array of detailed, often multi-color motifs.… Read More
Rosewood color addition is a perfect, pretty summer shade that complements the current palette of the Rosa Faia Twin Series.
Best selling collection for 20 years, all styles in the Twin series provide a unique perfect fit for any body shape combined with feel-good comfort from the soft stretch fabric. The Twin bras feel like a second skin and are virtually invisible, even underneath form fitting clothing. The subtle sheen of the silky, breathable fabric guarantees a smooth effect.
Twin Wireless Soft Bra
The pre-shaped cups on both the Wireless Soft Bra (5493) and Underwire Bra (5490) styles are double-layered and enhance the comfortable fit with the combination of extra-soft, wide straps, which run gently over the shoulders and don’t slip down due to their stretch and center positioning at the back.… Read More
By LINDA DYETTI live in the East Village—notorious for its (fantastic) restaurants, its quirky little retail businesses (a goodly number of which, including Azeleas, the lingerie shop, have survived the shutdown), and the hordes of NYU, Cooper Union, St. John’s, and New School students, as well as the oddball artists, designers, and freelancers who occupy the neighborhood. This area, like Bushwick and Williamsburg, is something of a style bellwether. So when I began noticing dozens of girls and women walking around braless beneath their slip dresses (accessorized with Doc Martens boots), their cropped T-shirts inside baggy overalls, and their oversize vintage dresses, I recognized it as a trend.… Read More

I just returned from my home in Cabo San Lucas where I horseback ride practically every day. It’s not easy doing high impact sports as a larger breasted woman. I am a G cup and luckily, in the past several years, I have had options. But I remember when this wasn’t reality and I struggled to participate in certain activities. That’s why I can relate to the problem for K cup girls (English sizing). By the way, that’s an O cup in the USA!… Read More

British brand Pure Chemistry’s latest launch is the third instalment in their luxury Asian bridal range. Titled ‘Roshni’, which means light and brightness, it’s a sun-kissed yellow collection to complement their earlier releases in the traditional bridal colors of red and pink.
Pure Chemistry was founded in 2014 in the UK by Dimple Rani. With the wedding lingerie that’s sold in stores there and in the US focusing almost exclusively on a typical Western color palette of white, ivory and pale blue, Rani believes there is a clear gap in the market.… Read More
