Orange You Glad

Cosabella's Trenta ombre collection

Orange is in this spring and we’re delighted! In color theory, orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, enthusiasm, and sunshine. We think this means you’re in for a fun spring when you’re wearing it. Cosabella’s Trenta bralette and hotpant in an ombre orange to yellow is especially enticing paired with a tequila sunrise and a beach towel! Ahhh, we’re dreaming of warm Caribbean breezes, powdered sugar sand, and a respite from emails.

We have never been so excited for a sports bra, but this Style and Sport bra by Chantelle is the most attractive and supportive (up to an H cup!) option we’ve seen. It’s especially fabulous in flame orange, but we carry it in black, too.

Another favorite this spring is b.tempt’d’s Ciao Bella balconette bra and tanga thong. The bra has been a best-seller because of its nearly universally flattering fit, pretty shape, and great support up to a DDD cup.

Honeydew’s Emma Elegance pajama short set is fun and cheerful sleepwear option, as it contrasts the bright lace against a soft heather grey modal knit.

Now, we’re not going so far as to say that orange is the new black (contrary to what Netflix tells us), but right now we’re so excited to brighten up our lingerie drawer with it!

Beautiful Bridal Lingerie

nouvel-emoi-desert-cropEveryone we know loves weddings. The cake! The dancing! The dress!

We enjoy all of those things, too, but our favorite, of course, is the lingerie. Every spring we receive new bridal collections, and each year the selection seems better than ever.

Particularly outstanding this year is Huit’s Nouvel Emoi strapless bra, which features a contour cup, lace overlay and a pretty bow accent (placed subtly in the center so it won’t show through clothing).

Eberjey’s Colette chemise is a tried-and-true favorite, with its sheer lace back and full, gathered empire waist shape.

For light smoothing and great support up to a DD cup, we love Le Mystere’s Bridal Seduction bustier, with detachable straps and garters, perfect for under a wedding gown.

Affinitas has wowed us with their new Alexa chemise in a light peachy pink. This winner packs a whole lot of flattering elegance into its $49 price.

Whether you’re looking for foundation garments or a honeymoon set for yourself or a lovely gift for a bride-to-be, we have beautiful options from leg garters, to lacy bralettes, shapewear to chemises. Come in to peruse and we’re sure you’ll leave with romantic inspirations!
