A lot of people see lingerie as inherently sexual. This makes sense, that’s often how it’s marketed. For some people, it’s why they wear lingerie. Young girls are often scolded for having visible bra straps, because it’s seen as inappropriate to have your underwear visible. I completely disagree with this premise. Lingerie is not inherently sexual to me, it’s just another clothing item that can be beautiful and add interest to an outfit. Read More
I promised this review a while ago. Actually I feel quite ashamed getting to it by the end of September when summer is over and most of you are probably packing your swimwear away to the back drawer. Well, I prepared a defence on it, learnt it by heart, rehearsed and now I can write it here almost without blushing – sales are coming (here goes GOT theme song) so it’s right the time to work on your bikini wish list. And my super late review of american brand Boys+Arrows is supposed to help you out in case if you had your eyes once or twice on their fun designs. Read More

Lingerie wardrobe is a section where different characters who share their love for lingerie tell about their most favourite things and what inspires them.
While creating this section I thought I’d be remiss if I don’t tell about my own lingerie wardrobe collected in about 7 years.
One would think everything has already been seen and told among the described orders. However it’s not quite right. I’ve described the orders rather in terms of practical benefits. Now, I’d like to share the stories behind these purchases. To tell why I’ve bought something in particular and what things are special to me. How I’ve started a collection and what is the most valuable in it. What things I wear often and what I keep as collector’s items. Read More
At the 13th Edition fashion show in Zurich Mode Suisse, the Swiss lingeir brand LYN presented the collection for the 2018 autumn-winter season. The brand took the vector for brevity, practically giving up on lace: lingerie became more minimalistic and geometric. Also on the show on the models were noticed garters (about the micro-renaissance of this accessory read here).

If in clothes the trend on perforated fabric has already outlived itself, actively existed from 2012 to 2014, then in lingerie and swimwear it only started to blossom. According to the forecast of the consortium of fabric manufacturers Merimoda, this trend will reach a peak by the summer of 2019. Read More
Let’s go back to the time when the dropped sock or bare ankle was incompatible with the image of a real gentleman. From 1880 to 1960, the socks of most men, at least in England, the United State, and France, were saved from falling by unique garters. “So I have enough inferiority complex to let my socks fall. How can you be confident, if you cross your feet and show naked skin? “- says Peter McManus, one of the characters of the movie “Down With Love!”, which unfolds in 1962. What his opponent replies is that due to new inventions such as lycra, marlon, and dacron, garters are no longer needed since socks are perfectly kept on the feet without this accessory. Read More
