Slipped Stitches & Stitched Slips: Maude Nibelungen’s Evocative, Elegant Knitwear

Maude Nibelungen is a textile artist with a passion for knitting unique, wearable objects of desire–evocative, avant garde knits full of elegant contradictions, which are equally lovely as sultry loungewear in the boudoir or as unexpected, expressive streetwear–and which are also equally encouraged for all types of people and all of their wonderful bodies. In our interview, below, Maude stressed to me […]


Ava.Adore, the new collection from Ava Corsetry, available for order starting tomorrow (May 7, 2015).  

Layering Bras

Current fashion trend I am feeling the need to add to my wardrobe: layering bras. Meant to be seem peeking out from under tank tops and dresses and old rocker tees with the arm holes too big.  Interesting and sexy without being lacy and frilly and girly. Seamless Strappy Back Bralette, $20   Cage RacerBack Bra, […]


Beautiful little things I couldn’t begin to afford, from Australian lingerie brand  Hopeless.

Chantilly Lace

Perfect, delicate, and totally decadent bits of nothing. Now I want to go lingerie shopping. Shot by Felix Lammers for Glass magazine #2


Obey My Demand, found via Kingdom of Style Lustworthy lingerie that begs to be worn outside your clothes.

Be My Toy

Photographs by Ben Cope for 160g’s erotic issue. Something about the second picture is so very Susan Sarandon in The Hunger…

Back in Bordelle

Back in March, I said how I’d pull a Madonna and wear it on the outside if I ever got my closet full of Bordelle’s lingerie.  I still mean it, especially after seeing the previews of their Fall / Winter 09 line.  It’s got a hint of Blade Runner, a hint of The Fifth Element, […]

Season of the Witch

Agent Provocateur’s Witch collection is still amazing.  We posted about it a few months back, but I just found these images from it, called Season of the Witch. Be warned, it’s super hot, and therefore not entirely SFW.

Fairy Goth Mother

Despite its rather clichéd name, Fairy Goth Mother is full of fabulous corsets, lingerie, and accessories.  Ranging from the uber gawth to retro, it pretty much covers all the bases for those of us that like to wear our underwear on the outside.  The prices are a bit high (especially for us Americans whose dollar […]

Peacock & Strutt

My newest object of affection is Peacock & Strutt.  I have full intention of pulling a Madonna and wearing my knickers on the outside once I start placing orders from them.  I am especially smitten with the Fresh Foundations by Made by Niki and Bordelle lines, but I really do think first on my wishlist […]

Chantal Thomass Spring 2009

French lingerie designer Chantal Thomass first caught my eye with her delicate, ultra-femme umbrellas.  Her lingerie, however, is the stuff of dreams, and even her official website feels like a well-appointed chest of drawers. The photography alone is worth stopping by, even if your French is as rusty as mine is. A plus: like most […]
