Solstice Intimates is an independent, American lingerie brand based in Arizona. Bright and whimsical, it brings deliciously retro patterns to contemporary lingerie styles. Thanks to their unique designs and their prominent use of velvet, I’ve been a fan of Solstice for a while.
An independent lingerie brand launched in February of 2016, Ellesmere Lingerie has since carved out a reputation for itself in the lingerie blogosphere for romantic designs with a contemporary twist.
When I initially discovered the brand Evgenia Lingerie, my first thought was luxury. The designer behind the brand, Stephanie Bodnar, has an exquisite eye for gorgeous, luxe fabrics. Her pieces wink at vintage undergarments, but she brings a unique modern flair to her designs.
I interviewed Jessica Ding to learn more about her creative process, how feminism impacts her work, and how trying to start a small business while working full time can sometimes feel like a long-distance relationship.
As a burlesque performer my lingerie collection inevitably skews towards showgirl styles, whether part of my onstage outfits or my personal collection, so I was definitely excited to hear about new British brand Mariesa Mae.
My first encounter with Dora Larsen was at a Dessous London event back in January of this year, where their rainbow spectrum of lacy delights had all of the lingerie bloggers ooh-ing and aah-ing as we toured the trunk show.
VienneMilano is a hosiery brand that I first discovered many moons ago, when I fell in love with a pair of their sparkly silver hold-ups (sadly no longer available). The new AW18 collection has just dropped, including the launch of the brand’s first ever plus-sized range.
Myla’s back! After more than a year of radio silence on social media and no new product releases, the brand has deleted everything and announced an “all new Myla, coming soon”. Though their website is currently just a holding page, the new AW18 collection is already available to buy at Selfridges.
With the fashion industry being the second largest contributor to global pollution, it’s comforting to know that brands are taking steps towards reducing their carbon footprint. One of the biggest recommendations is to buy second hand or vintage clothing, but this isn’t always ideal when it comes to underwear.
I’ve decided that it’s definitely time to add some new members to my team. So if you have a passion for lingerie and love to write too, read on! I’m looking for two new writers to take on slightly different roles. First up, I’m looking for a features writer to cover lookbooks, interviews and brand news.
