Nude Bras and other Intimates for Brown Skin

Fashion Advice

Hey lingerie brands, did you know not all people are beige? In fact, 2016 Census data shows that over 40% of Americans are non-white. This means your beige bras, panties, hosiery, and control garments you call “nude” are not skin colored for almost half the population. What a missed opportunity. Take a lesson from Rihanna and the success of Fenty Beauty. When you recognize people come in more than one…

Friday Favorite: Hanky Panky

Fashion Advice

If you’ve read this blog for a while you know I’m a Hanky Panky devotee. Since having Emerson and now having a soft lower belly, I am a big fan of their “Retro” line, which has a higher rise. Their Retro Thong is the most comfortable thong I have ever worn and I love that it’s lacy so it looks pretty while still being soft and stretchy. Their Retro Lace…

Ask Allie: All About Bras

Fashion Advice

Dear Allie, I hope this doesn’t sound creepy but your bust looks great. What bra do you wear? My absolute favorite everyday bra is the Fantasie Underwire Smoothing T-Shirt bra. There’s a molded cup version, and a stretchy seamless cup version. I prefer the molded cup; it gives more support and prevents ‘headlights’. I always have two nude and two black in my drawer; I replace them every 6-12 months…

#SavedBySkimmies: Jockey® Skimmies® Slipshort Review and Giveaway

Fashion Advice

I knew I had to…

Ask Allie: What to Wear Under Fitted Knit Dresses

Fashion Advice

I have been following your blog for awhile now and bought many things from your recommendation; the latest one is a dress from Dobbin. However, I need the correct undergarments. I put on the Jockey shorts (also your recommendation) but the seams show. I have tried Spanx and they are a bit too constricting. Any advice as to what I can wear under dresses so I can incorporate them into…

A Bra Fitting with Soma Intimates and a Giveaway

Fashion Advice

Soma contacted me and asked if I'd like to come to their boutique at the Westfield Montgomery Mall and get a bra fitting and try their Enhancing Shape Bra. I heard about this bra through InStyle, who considers it to be the solution for “ski slope” (the gap at the top of bra cups). I've always been a busty woman, but after years of breastfeeding, age, gravity, weight loss and…
