As a fashion editor we often discuss topics that may seem taboo or even TMI to some. Asking someone their bra size or their favorite type of undies or shapewear is all in a day’s work. I like to be all caught up on what people are loving and what is new out there. Here is a roundup of some of some new intimate things hitting my radar.
Pretty things I am currently obsessed with: A friend recently introduced me to Fortnight and I was floored. I do sometimes get faint at a gorgeous bra (and a bit touchy-feely) but I was also shocked I hadn’t heard of it, since I am a self proclaimed bra expert. It’s not cheap (bottoms starting at $48 bras starting at $69) but I could tell that the quality is just as beautiful as the look of it. Worth a splurge!
Cheap & chic: Who doesn’t love a good deal, especially when the items are actually things you need in styles that are cool. Smart & Sexy truly lives to it’s name and you can get a bra and undies set for only $15.
Newest bra shopping Mecca: There are a ton great online retailers that sell bras but what makes True & Co. different is it starts by giving you a 2 minute “fit quiz” that will result in giving you options for the your prefect bra… no measuring tape required!
The gift that keeps on giving: PantybyPost.com is like a really cool updated version of the jelly of the month. Order it for yourself or as a gift for a friend and enjoy a monthly lacy surprise in the mail. (Gals, this is certainly something to share with your husbands and boyfriends.)
2 for 1 tights: Hanes Silk Reflections tights convert into leggings by simply folding up the foot. It’s pure genius!
Run resistant: Got L’eggs’? Well you should! L’eggs new Silken Mist hosiery will keep you run-free all season! Guaranteed to be the best $6 you spend.
The latest and greatest from everyone’s favorite, Spanx: Not only do they have a new extension brand, Assets Red Hot Label by Spanx sold at Kohl’s, they also have fabulous lace shapers that have mesh overlay. They’re not only pretty but they keep you just as sucked in as all other Spanxs. (and FYI, the high-rise thong is very popular with celebs!)
