• Lingerie Review: Bracli Pearl Thongs, Babydoll and Corset

    The pearl thong is a notorious piece of lingerie. Designed primarily for stimulation, rather than comfort or style, it seemingly represents the more sex-focused side of the lingerie industry. People (always men, in my experience) would call the lingerie store I used to work at asking if we carried pearl thongs. They're mostly marketed as gifts, rather than something a lingerie-wearer would purchase for themselves. In my opinion, it's the epitome of the male gaze in lingerie: overtly sexual marke
  • 10 Black-Owned Lingerie Brands to Shop This Month (And Every Month)

    A couple of years ago, I wrote an article on black-owned lingerie brands and it became one of TLA’s most popular articles to-date. Despite what many business experts or industry authorities have to say about the importance of “neutral” or “colorblind” companies, it turns out many people want to support underrepresented or marginalized designers. This is especially when these brands respond to a need the larger intimate apparel industry has […]

  • In the Desert: A Lingerie Editorial with Michelle Terris Photography

    One of the things I've mentioned here before - and that I keep coming back to, because it's always true - is that every shoot is a new experience. Not just because I'm working with a new photographer, but also because I'm a different person. The Cora of a few months isn't exactly the same as the Cora of right now. And I'm finding myself wanting to push, to move forward, to dig beyond what I've done before and what feels safe.The post In the Desert: A Lingerie Editorial with Michelle Terris Photo

    I always, always, always love introducing a new brand on TLA. Even better if that brand is run by someone who's been the invisible, behind-the-scenes innovator on so many luxury lingerie labels, from Ludique to Bordelle. One can't help but wonder what someone that creative could do if they were in charge of their own label. For now, at least when it comes to Pia Conaghan, we don't have to wonder anymore. Her debut collection for the eponymous brand, Studio by Pia, is both ambitious and impressiv

    Fashion is all about what's new and what's next, and lingerie is no exception. And the latest trend of the moment is high-neck bras. A natural offshoot from the bralette trend with its emphasis on visible little details and innerwear-as-outerwear versatility, high-neck bras offer a multitude of new styling options for those who feel exhausted by the strappy trend or bored by the basic triangle cup. And, of course, high-neck bras are a perfect fit halterneck dresses and tops.

    Valentine's Day is both my most favorite and least favorite holiday. I hate how it encourages clichéd forms of obligatory, performative "romance" popularized to improve greeting card sales. On the other hand, I love twee heart motifs, big bouquets of fresh flowers, pink chocolate boxes, excessive kissing, and, of course, fancy lingerie.
