Good morning/afternoon/evening (please select one), my beautiful readers. Today I write to you from my chilly little house, as I am home for the holidays and am freezing (seriously, where did the heat go?) As a result, I am bundled in two pairs of pants, three shirts, and some fuzzy socks. Ironic, considering that in […]Read more "Reviewed: Dita Von Teese Madame X Set"
For the duration of my bra-wearing career, I have always associated ‘nude’ with my own skin tone. And for the most part, companies agreed with me. Being white, I’m constantly inundated by nude bras that are designed to blend in on my skin. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of brands […]Read more "The Nudist: Bras That Are Outside the Traditional Nude"
I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while- a fact made quite clear as it’s still summer in the photos. The Burek , while only available in some remaining sizes, is now available in a few other similar versions, the Cukiereczek and the Summer Time, are available in a full range of sizes.

Hello, everybody! I’ve finally gotten a new photographer (or, my old photographer came back) and my schedule has temporarily cleared up. Thus, the first item on top of my ever-growing stack of reviews is the Gossard Phoebe. I was smitten with this one as soon as I saw it in catalog. It looked cream-colored in […]Read more "Reviewed: Gossard Phoebe"
Hello, everybody! I’ve been absent and a little preoccupied for the last while, but if you’ll take me back, I’ll stay and be good to you.Or at the very least, post regularly.

Before I begin, I want to clarify some things: I am not disparaging any individual companies for producing their size ranges and can respect that for some sizes, there is not enough of a market to sell to. I have nothing against the fortunate women who can fit into core-size lingerie, and nothing against those […]Read more "I Love Lingerie But Hate (Some) Lingerie Companies"
Hello good readers, and welcome to the Matrix. Well, not really- but for some people, learning about bras can certainly feel like that! A few weeks ago, I got a comment from a younger reader asking about making a guide for somebody just starting out with bras. I thought it was a great idea, and […]Read more "The Beginner’s Bra Guide"
Disclaimer: This bra was provided by Gossard. Of course, all opinions and whatnot are my own. Thank you and enjoy! :) You know those neon signs that you see in shop windows or at 70s’ themed parties? They’re so bright that they almost hurt your eyes, yet they’re also strangely mesmerizing so you don’t look […]Read more "Reviewed: Gossard Lola"
The color initially attracted me to this bra. I mean, would you just look at that green color? It was toss up between ordering the padded shoulder bra (something I’d never tried before) and the unlined comfort bra in which I knew exactly what to expect). I decided to take the plunge and go for […]Read more "Reviewed: Mimi Holliday Apple Tart Padded Shoulder Bra"

Playful Promises is a UK brand that’s new to me, but I heard they were having a sale. Now, this is probably just like the rest of you, but the word sale excites me like no other thing does.

I’m no stranger to Mimi Holliday, though I’ve never owned one of their comfort bra styles before. A bra literally named ‘comfortable’- it was too tempting to not give it a whirl. I chose this one because I loved the lace and the vintage bridal feel of it. I bought the full set, waspie included, […]Read more "Reviewed: Mimi Holliday Comfort Bra Style"
