Terracotta Teddy

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie

When it comes to fall, Bill Rowell, owner of Foxy Lingerie, says, “We look for deep rich colors, but the material still needs to look delicate and sexy!” The Teasing Eyelash Teddy is exactly that: sheer, rich in color and wonderfully sexy! Available in sizes, S, M, L and XL, this terracotta colored teddy features a flattering plunge neckline and matching low back design. The best part of this autumn style is the boho-flair of the delicate braided tassel trim on the small of the back. It makes this piece so playful and flirty! This piece is ideal for those late summer vacations to a beach hideaway!

Bridal Grey

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie

Believe it or not, fall has replaced summer as the most popular season for weddings! With that in mind, Bill added the Shoreline Grey Sheer Mesh Lace Teddy as a great option for fall brides. “While it’s not white, the color is soft and bright,” he says. “For sure, any bride would be totally thrilled with this lingerie style on her wedding night. When we got our hands on the 2019 Mapalé lingerie collection, I knew this style would be popular given the unique and beautiful look. Our customers have loved it so far as well!”

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie
With a thong cut back and split sizing, S/M and M/L, this piece is ideal for gifting too! The grey color also makes it much easier to wear for most skin-tones compared to white and ivory.

Back to Black

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie

The Timeless Lingerie set is daring and mysterious, just like fall itself. This bewitching two-piece set features a striped sheer mesh underwired top and ultra-flattering high-waisted bottom. Although Foxy Lingerie carries an amazing array of sexy Halloween costumes, this set is perfect to wear underneath your clothes during a Halloween soiree (in case, dressing up is not your thing).

Fall Florals

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie

Florals aren’t just for spring, but they’re also lovely in fall. The Delicate Floral Babydoll from Mapale Lingerie features a soft mist-colored lace covering contour cups, a lightweight floral mesh and adjustable straps. This babydoll is perfect for those looking for some bust support and coverage around the waist and hips. With it a sensual cutout back design and millennial pink floral design, this piece may be perfect for sleep but it’s certainly no snooze!

She’s a Knockout

Fall Lingerie Hits from Foxy Lingerie

Teddies are dominating the lingerie world and that will definitely continue into the fall. They’re easy to wear and super flattering! Available in black or grey, Mapale’s Knockout Teddy, is all of the above! Made with sheer mesh paneling, delicate lace and sexy side lace-ups, this piece will become your go-to, no matter the season! With an adjustable hook and eye crotch closure, this piece is also incredibly wearer friendly (After all, there’s nothing worse than navigating a public restroom when you’re wearing a romper)! Wear it underneath your comfy knit sweater for a sexy secret!

Already fall-ing (sorry not sorry for the pun) for these lovelies? Head over to the Foxy Lingerie website where they are all available for purchase. Best of all, Foxy Lingerie offers free standard shipping, no minimum order value required, for all purchases! That’s just another way Foxy Lingerie is making your online lingerie shopping easy and fun!

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENEWYORK

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

“I think [this trend] has to be connected with the global movement of women owning their power, accepting their bodies and their sensuality.” – Minka of MilaKrasna.

Collard shirts and tight pencil skirts make way—BDSM-inspired lingerie is the new power suit for women who want to own their confidence and feel more powerful. Taking cues from boss dominatrixes who know how to get what they want, many mainstream and independent brands spotted at CURVENEWYORK are now incorporating latex, harnesses and leather into their collections.

This fashion trend wasn’t sparked on the runway, but rather in the many conversations and movements in society that center around women’s rights and sexuality. “For me the bondage-inspired trends maybe reflect this as a way of taking back control, the ultimate power play,” says Elissa Grainger, owner of Elissa Poppy, a line known for the use of Lacetex, a fabric that latex and lace.

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

“I think it has to be connected with the global movement of women owning their power, accepting their bodies and their sensuality,” adds Minka of MilaKrasna, a fashion-forward line of bodywear that is heavily bondage-inspired.

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

Another woman who can speak to this new trend is author, Lindsay Goldwert. Her new book, BOW DOWN: Lessons from Dominatrixes on How to Get Everything You Want will be released in January. Lindsay is not a dominatrix, but she interviewed plenty to write her book, which teaches women how to say what they want by being honest and direct. “I followed all the advice from a dominatrix and it has changed my life,” says Lindsay. “It’s about having higher standards for yourself and saying what you mean.”

Lindsay agrees that your apparel choices heavily weigh into how you feel. “You have to project what you feel on the inside,” she says.

“We all know that great fitting, aesthetically pleasing, well-made lingerie makes us feel great,” adds Elissa. “But there is also something special about those powerful, bondage-inspired pieces. It creates a mood in the wearer, as if they’re unstoppable, the ultimate confidence boost.”

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

The bondage-inspired details that are making their way into mainstream collections are easy to incorporate into your own wardrobe. As Lindsay says, you don’t have to go full kink to enjoy the boost you get from wearing the gear. Read on for a few of the top trends presented at this past August’s CURVENY show to see how you can wear them.

Strappy Details

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

Start off slow with bras and bodysuits that incorporate strappy, banded details. Adjustable elastic straps are comfortable and easy to wear under your clothing. A gorgeous strappy bra is great peeking out from under the neckline of a dress or under a sheer top. Bluebella’s AW19 collection features several strappy bras that will make you feel like you rule the world. The provocative Bree Bra features edgy cut-outs on the cups with elasticated banding leading up from the underwires and forming the completely adjustable doubled shoulder straps. The combination of thick and thin straps lends a fresh take to this established trend.

MilaKrasna SS20

Beyond the bedroom, you can show off your inner strength at the gym with MilaKrasna’s Gina Bra, which incorporates strappy details, while providing enough support for a high-intensity workout with breathable, 4-way stretch material. The all-black style is chic, but we also love how the black straps pop against the red in the top cherry version of the bra.

We have been making bondage-inspired bodywear for quite some time,” says Minka. “Our first pieces were actually lingerie-inspired dancewear, so it was quite natural to draw from bondage aesthetics.”

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

The bondage look can even work for brides. Studio Pia’s Clea Cage Bra, which features ivory silk lined adjustable straps and 24k gold plated hardware, is our pick for finding your power while honeymooning.

Harnesses

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

For another great option, consider a harness. Layer it over an ordinary bra to spice up your look, or wear it alone. The Andi Harness from Colette & Sebastian is a great option because it features adjustable elastic straps with a single line chest strap and choker that promises to give you confidence in any situation.

Milakrasna makes a sportier harness, the Carly Body Harness can be worn over any set for a major ego boost. Thanks to a breathable, 4-way stretch, soft-touch material it also feels good on.

Latex

Bondage and BDSM-inspired Lingerie Trends at CURVENY

If you’re feeling brave, perhaps the latex styles from Elissa Poppy will help you bring out your inner dominatrix. “It’s a fabric that to some people seems unconventional, sometimes almost harsh, but what most don’t know is how natural and sustainable it truly is,” says Elissa.

Elissa Poppy customers are layering items from the line with their everyday clothing. The Zeta Zip Corset looks empowering paired with heels and great-fitting jeans, and the Beta Biker Short is a latex version of this season’s on-trend active silhouette.

“I see it as a leather replacement, but what is great about the material is how adaptive it is, and I think that’s why I love it so much,” Elissa adds.

“I want to be different. If everyone is wearing black, I want to be wearing red.” – Maria Sharapova @emmaxgrimm in @darkestfoxnyc #lingerie #design @patrice.catanzaro – #regrann Reposted from @mbmoore

A post shared by Darkest Fox Luxury Lingerie (@darkestfoxnyc) on

Think you can’t wear latex? Lindsay Goldwert had the same feeling as she did research for her book. “I get it,” she says. “Latex is tight.” But when a dominatrix she was interviewing encouraged her to try it on she did, and she felt it’s transformative powers. She says wearing it made her immediately strike a pose, (which she says should be a requirement when selecting power lingerie pieces,) and helped her channel her confidence to demand respect. If you’ve never thought about your innerwear as such a powerful tool, now is perfect time to give it a shot.

Ones to Watch: Lingerie Gift Ideas from Up-And-Coming Brands

Studio Pia Naga

“This year, we thought we’d bring you some gifting inspiration from our ‘Ones to Watch’, independent brands that are bringing a unique aesthetic to the lingerie industry.”

Holiday season is so close, I can practically taste the eggnog and gingerbread already. If you’re not already working your way through your gift-buying list, it won’t be long until you’ll need to start.

This year, we thought we’d bring you some gifting inspiration from our ‘Ones to Watch’, independent brands that are bringing a unique aesthetic to the lingerie industry. It means you can pick up something unique and a bit more personal, rather than a mass-manufactured garment. And you get to support smaller brands in the process.

From decadent loungewear to stylish bra sets, there’s something here for everyone – including a few ideas for treating yourself!

Luxurious Loungewear

Winter is all about cozying up indoors, which means that loungewear is always a great gift idea for the festive season. Plus, it’s the kind of gift that you can give to anyone – partners, friends, mothers, and grandmothers alike.

Faith Collection by V.O.SHE

Ones to Watch

Give the gift of blissful comfort with this cami and jogger set from the Faith collection by V.O.SHE. In a wonderfully wintery shade of deep burgundy, it’s made from real silk for breathability and softness against the skin. Faith will be launching at the end of November, with a celebratory pop-up event in Toronto.

Embrace Me robe by Belle D’Amour

Ones to Watch

When the temperatures drop, everyone appreciates a cozy robe – especially if they’re as jaw-droppingly fabulous as this one. The hooded, wide-lapelled Embrace Me by Belle D’Amour is full of drama, and it’s fully reversible too. That’s basically two gifts in one! Available to pre-order online from 1st November.

Gardenia nightgown by Carol Coelho Intimates

Ones to Watch

For the giftee who craves refined glamour and romance, the elegant Gardenia nightgown by Carol Coelho Intimates will go down as a treat. The floor-length skirt is made from bias-cut silk charmeuse, while the metallic lace adds lashings of festive sparkle. It’s lined with tulle too, so it can double as a breathtaking evening gown.

Faith Collection by V.O.SHE

Ones to Watch

This simple silk slip, also from the upcoming Faith collection by V.O.SHE, is easy to style and wear. The minimalist design lets your recipient put their own spin on it, whether that means pairing it with slippers and a drapey robe for their morning coffee, or with heels and a belt for those New Year’s parties. Available from the end of November.

Stand-Out Bra Sets

If you’re planning to buy someone a bra set, the key is to find something with that ‘special touch’. A simple t-shirt bra may be what they’d wear the most, but it doesn’t make for an especially exciting gift. Instead, look for a memorable detail, whether that’s a beautiful fabric, an unusual shape, or an eye-catching color palette.

Laura by Dora Larsen

Ones to watch

Dora Larsen’s lingerie is characterized by its unique, contrasting color combos, such as the vibrant orange, coral pink and river blue of this Laura set.

Ones to Watch

You can never go wrong with a pair of chic black briefs, especially when they’re made from delightfully soft mesh and have a pretty picot trim. The Summerland panty by Summer Wildes has 19% spandex content, for the comfiest of fits.

Festive Partywear

Don’t forget to treat yourself too! ‘Tis the season for giving, but also the one for non-stop partying, so you’re going to need a killer outfit or three. And with lingerie-as-outerwear as on-trend as ever, why deal with hunting for a bra and top/dress that work together when you could just buy one piece that serves as both?

Monaco gown by Belle D’Amour

Ones to Watch

Be unforgettable this New Year’s Eve in Belle D’Amour’s cage-detailed The Monaco gown. It’s made from shimmering navy fabric and black lace, both with stretch for a fit that feels custom made. Available to pre-order online from 1st November.

Lexi Soft Cup Bra by Something Wicked

Ones to Watch

Turn heads in the Lexi Soft Cup Bra by Something Wicked. A truly transitional piece, it makes for a dramatically-sexy outerwear look. The real leather fabric is ultra-soft, to perfectly hug your curves, and it’s semi-open at the back. I’d be pairing it with a pencil skirt and heels, but it would look amazing under a pantsuit too.

Full Cup Bra by Elissa Poppy

Ones to Watch

Another lingerie piece that doubles as a crop top, Elissa Poppy’s Full Cup Bra makes a bold fashion statement. The latex is double-thick for durability, and it has a hidden zip at the back for easy dressing. It comes in six colors too, to match whatever party outfit you may have planned.

Brigitte Swimsuit by UltraViolet Lingerie

Ones to Watch

Jetting off to spend the holiday season somewhere warm? If you’ve had an invite to a pool party, then the Brigitte swimsuit by Ultraviolet should definitely be in your suitcase. The plunging, open-sided shape is very striking, and the metal detail gives it a definite luxury vibe. Available from January.

Whatever gift you choose, remember that chic presentation makes it seem extra special, so I do recommend purchasing the gift wrap option or picking up a box and ribbon of your own.

And remember to request a gift receipt if you shop in-store, just in case it doesn’t fit. The only thing worse than not owning lingerie you like is owning lingerie you love but cannot wear!

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

“We transferred our expertise into the activewear world with new fabrics, functionality and accessories resulting in a range that offers exceptional performance” —Josie-Anne Le Diouron

From hitting the gym after work to a weekend powerwalk in the park with friends, keeping fit and doing sport has become a routine part of our daily lives. And naturally, we want to look good doing it. We want sportswear that is both chic and functional and will hold up well to the rigors of regular exercise.

French lingerie brand Empreinte has been fine-tuning its fit and support since 1946 – a timeline that includes 12 years of expertise in seamless lingerie – and now it’s taking that savoir-faire and channeling it into the brand’s first-ever activewear line, IN-PULSE.

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

“Empreinte has always been focused on women’s well-being through its lingerie that provides both a unique fit and a style infused with French elegance,” says Empreinte North America’s Marketing Coordinator Josie-Anne Le Diouron, “Our know-how combined with our desire to offer women the freedom to move as they want in their everyday life naturally led us to explore the activewear segment, a segment that is no longer only reserved for sportspersons.”

INITIALE

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

INITIALE, the debut IN-PULSE range, comprises a seamless sports bra, a shorty, and matching leggings for a perfectly-coordinated look. The three pieces are available in a choice of graphite grey or light and rosy pink. Incorporated into the designs are metallic panels and shimmering stripes, for a contemporary ‘sports chic’ vibe.

IN-PULSE is the culmination of three years of development, research, and rigorous testing. “We transferred our expertise into the activewear world with new fabrics, functionality, and accessories resulting in a range that offers exceptional performance,” says Josie-Anne.

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

The INITIALE sports bra is underwired, but you wouldn’t know it from how it feels. “We made the choice to have wires on our sports bra as in a regular bra,” she adds, “since they give extra support and help with creating a beautiful separation of the breast. However, these wires are integrated into the structure of the bra so that they cannot be felt on the body during activities.”

Support with Shape

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

The bra, although designed to be lightweight, significantly reduces bounce even for fuller busts, and even for high-intensity sports. Many sports bras have racerback or crossover straps for added support, and the INITIALE includes that option. It has discreet clasp fastenings where the cups join to the straps, allowing you to easily convert them to a crossover style without taking the bra off.

The wiring keeps the breasts separated and lifted, rather than flattening them as some cheaper, compression-based sports bras do. Available in C-H cup sizes, the INITIALE sports bra will keep you feeling both confident and comfortable, whether you’re darting across a tennis court or powering through a kick-boxing class.

Function and Fashion

Empreinte Enters the Activewear Market with IN-PULSE

The range also uses fabrics that are soft to the touch, with the cups made from a spacer fabric for breathability and rapid drying. The shorty has flat seams and a chic-but-comfy wide elastic waistband. While the leggings use durable EMANA fabric that boosts comfort and provides SPF 50+ UV protection for your outdoor workouts.

Overall, INITIALE is a fantastic entrance into the activewear market from Empreinte – it’s functional, which is the most important thing in fitness wear of course, but clearly an equal amount of thought has been put into making it attractive. The leggings especially are something you can put on for the gym and then keep wearing as stylish athleisurewear afterward.

IN-PULSE launches in stores in December 2019, with RRPs of $188 for the bra (available in 32-42C, 28-42 D-F, 30-40G, and 30-36H), $83 for the shorty (available in XXS-XXL), and $166 for the leggings (available in XS-L).

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

Boutique owners, have you thought about hosiery lately? Timothy Gettler, owner of Glamory Hosiery feels that this product can be the key to getting your loyal bra shoppers into your store more frequently.

Consider this: the average bra lasts for about 6-9 months. “When we have spoken to boutique owners they have said their loyal customers visit 1 to 3 times per year and buy an average of 4 to 5 bras a year,” says Timothy.

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

Focusing only on those sales, and growing your base of loyal bra shoppers may be hurting your business.“Hosiery is the secret to selling more,” Timothy says. “Hosiery should be thought of as the anchor for the lingerie boutiques and here’s why. Women need to purchase hosiery more often than they need to purchase bras.”

Since even the best hosiery does not last forever, it can be a great tool for retailers to get loyal customers back in their stores closer to 4 to 6 times a year to purchase replacement hosiery.

Hosiery does not have the same lifespan as a bra,” he says. “Hosiery is not indestructible and generally does get replaces at least 12 times per year.” This will allow you to double the amount of visits that customers have to make to your store.

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

By the Numbers

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

Timothy shared a little math with us to illustrate exactly how Glamory Hosiery can improve sales for boutique owners.

If an average bra costs $70, and a customer buys two, she is spending $140 per visit. Adding in a $28 pair of Glamoury Hosiery increases that sale by 20 percent.

“When that customer returns six more times throughout the year to replace their hosiery you can introduce them to new bra styles, shapewear, lingerie soaps, panties and novelty romance items,”he adds.

By adding hosiery, and giving your customers an excuse to return to your store 6 to 9 times a year, Timothy calculates that you can increase you annual sale per customer to over $800, which is a 130 percent increase in sales. “For just ten customers, that’s a $5,490 increase per year,” Timothy adds.

Inclusive Offerings

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

So why is Glamory Hosiery the best product to offer your customers? Its size range goes up to dress size 32, which meets the needs of all your plus size customers. Plus, Glamory Hosiery isn’t sold in big box stores, so your customers will have to return to your store for their next pair.

“Our thigh high hold-ups come up to the top part of the thigh,” says Timothy. “They stay in place and won’t roll down. They also do not create the muffin top and constrict on the thigh like so many other brands will.”

How to Increase Boutique Sales with Glamory Hosiery

Styles feature true galloon construction with a scalloped picot edge, silicone strips to stay in place and flat seam stitching. The brand also carries a variety of styles such as tights, stocking and knee-highs.

Hosiery Displays

Glamory Hosiery

If you currently carry hosiery be sure that you’re displaying it correctly to better catch the attention of shoppers who may not know you offer the product, or may not know they are looking for it. “Hosiery should be displayed on either alone on a leg form or a full mannequin,” says Timothy. “Further we also offer a sizing kit that is also a great way to show a completed look and to suggest the purchase of hosiery to complete a look or outfit. The sizing kit also help with showing the customer that the size they purchase will fit them how they would like to wear.”

Glamory Hosiery

The styles come packaged in a sealed poly bag so it’s not easy for customers to take out and examine before they purchase it. “We do have swatches available for free that is available for stores so that they can feel the different texture and denier,” says Timothy. Keep those swatches nearby when customers come in for new bras and lingerie styles and see how hosiery can start to work for your store.

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

“We believe that sexy and erotic garments are not just to be taken off. They are meant to provoke your alluring Goddess spirit.” —Haitham Zaidan.

“Why wear it when you’re just going to take it off?” Lingerie brand, Temptations Avenue poses the sentiment I often hear when I tell people I work in the lingerie business. I have a hard time answering that question, but Temptations Ave saucily responds that this is the very question that gave life to the brand. “We believe that sexy and erotic garments are not just to be taken off,” says owner Haitham Zaidan. “They are meant to provoke your alluring Goddess spirit.” Embracing one’s feminine power is something I can definitely get behind, so I was thrilled to try on styles from the Erotic & Wild collection.

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

Wrapped with great reverence inside a luxe gift box, I pull stunning teddies and bustiers of faux leather from their beautifully wrapped tissue paper packaging. Temptations Ave ships all styles in a luxury gift box, making them all the more special to open as a gift for yourself or someone else. The first thing I noticed about the four styles I was sent was the sumptuous hardware. It’s heavy, clearly not cheap, and as functional as it is beautiful.

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

The Erotic Impressions teddy has a leather collar around the neck adorned with a heavy brass ring. Its angelic counterpart, the Adore Me set in white, also features bold hardware- in the form of glitzy gold and crystal rings on the straps. There’s so much bling you won’t need to wear jewelry with any of these sets.

I decided to style these pieces as outwear and test drive them on the streets of NYC. Certainly showstoppers, all of these styles make perfect night out outfits. My philosophy, mantra and raison d’etre is lingerie as outerwear—all day every day. If one is going to invest in quality lingerie, why relegate it to the confines of your bedroom?

Glam Goddesses

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

First, we styled the Adore Me and the Erotic Impressions sets with big furry coats, thigh-high boots and a double dose of glam. I 100 percent felt the Temptations Ave goddess spirit taking over, as we quite literally stopped traffic in the streets. The Adore Me set is truly unique. It’s boldly sexy with strappy, plunging cups, yet sweetly angelic with its dainty white bows. I really loved the front and back lace-up features, making it easy to adjust and take on and off. Haitham notes this is his favorite piece right now, “It has a bit of everything. It is elegant, but wild, erotic and sensual.”

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

The darkness to Adore Me’s light, I wore the Erotic Impressions set and wow did it leave an impression! I’m obsessed with the strappy details on the sides—they’re fully adjustable, and expertly spaced close together so nothing pops out. Of course, the highlight of this piece is the brass ring collar that is begging for a leash to be attached to it. The entire collection features garter straps to attach thigh high stockings to, for the ultimate seduction.

Next Stop, Temptations Ave

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

The next two strappy black corsets were begging to be styled ultra edgy. My model and I rocked them with leather pants and moto jackets and hit the NYC subway for a gritty, underground shoot. Temptations owner Haitham explains he feels we are getting numb to the usual lingerie sets. “I tried to address this in our lingerie selection,” he says. “I think strappy lingerie is here to stay and that is very exciting!”

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

Straps on straps will have you feeling like a bondage bombshell in the Maya and the Dark Supremacy styles. The Maya is a beautiful duplicity of feminine and industrial. Big gold buckles and a snakeskin leather body contrast soft sheer bra cups. The cups fit well—the mesh material makes it easy to fit an A-C cup in this style. Most of the styles we tried were better on smaller cup sizes. If you’re busty I’d recommend going a size up. We are both wearing size small in all the photos.

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

For the final look, I wore the Dark Supremacy bustier. This set had me feeling a bit more badass Athena warrior goddess than a sensual Aphrodite. The signature hardware reigns supreme, with a total of 5 operable buckles connecting the bra cups to a row of O-rings attached to the collar. The bra cups are some sort of mystical witchcraft, formed entirely out of bra straps woven together. This style looks complicated but is mercifully easy to put on, with a zipper back and Velcro closure at the collar.

Lingerie, Interrupted

Product Review: The Goddesses of Temptations Avenue

Haitham says the Erotic and Wild collection gets the most views on their website. “They look so different from what we are used to,” he says. “It interrupts the usual. I think we are seeing more of the strappy bondage lingerie because of all the emotions and images they trigger in people, who are becoming more curious and open to new ideas.”

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

“R ing in the holidays in something sexy!” boasts e-commerce lingerie giant Foxy Lingerie. Owner Bill Rowell curated quite the naughty and nice lists, with an extensive collection of lingerie offerings in sultry Santa reds and sparkly new year’s golds. The stand -out collections come from Mapale, a Miami based brand known for sophisticated, fashion-forward designs. Bill confirmed, “our customers rave about these styles and many come back to purchase new designs as they come out season to season.”

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

Foxy Lingerie generously sent me four of their best selling Mapale bra and panty sets, along with a few pairs of their retro back-seam thigh high stockings. Each set is neatly packaged with gorgeous imagery of a model wearing the lingerie set, and I have to say, the lingerie looks exactly like the picture! The website even notes, “we offer the highest resolution images so you can see what products actually look like.” I was delighted to find the quality and fit was not photoshopped or edited. Yes girl, you will look like a sexy Santa snow bunny in that red set!

Hot for the Holidays

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie
What to do when it’s a snowy day in NYC and you have nothing to wear but the latest styles from Mapale? Grab a silk robe, a bottle of bubbly and get cozy with that someone special! Or in my case, my BFF Liv and take over the Roosevelt Hotel! My bestie and I were delighted with how well all the styles fit. All sets were a size small/medium, and thanks to the superior stretchy fabric fit both of our body types. She is closer to a size XS and I’m more of a medium, but all sets fit us both remarkably well!

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

The “Hot for the Holidays” set may be my favorite. The fit of the bralette was impeccable. Bill confirmed this is their current bestseller. “It just became available and, given the quickly approaching holiday season, customers are stocking up on this style,” he says. Airy mesh in a red plaid print practically molds to your body like a second skin. Honestly, I’ll be wearing this delicate bralette daily now, it’s the most comfortable and supportive thing I’ve worn in a long time, and I try on a LOT of lingerie.

It was a pleasant change of pace to see red plaid in holiday lingerie, I much prefer its understated sophistication over tawdry marabou-trimmed Santa outfits. I really loved the strappy details and gold rings that gave it a hint of glam and luxe. The bottoms are a bit more fussy with strappy details that wrap around the waist and tie- but DANG do they make your butt look cute! These are probably a lot more fun taking off than putting on.

Pop the Prosecco

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

I styled this set and the “Frills and Thrills” set with Mapale’s gorgeous retro back seam stockings, which are trimmed with little bows. Liv who modeled the set exclaimed, “Oh my god look at my butt, I look like a present!” With a daring cage back design and keyhole front, the panty half of this set definitely puts the “thrill’’ in “Frills & Thrills”.

The bralette also has a stunning sparkly cage back design, and brilliantly closes in the front. The black scallop lace cups fit well for a smaller bust size, I’d say A or B cup. This is a great layering piece to wear with a open back top and show off the strappy cage detail—perfect for a sparkly new years outfit. We found it was also perfect for prosecco-fueled pillow fights.

Baby it’s Cold Outside:Underwear as Outerwear

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

Nothing brings me holiday joy like styling lingerie as outerwear. Why wear lingerie strictly for the boudoir, or hide it under your clothing? The “Whisper to Me” and “Sophisticated in Stripes” sets beg to be seen, so I styled them both with ultra-luxe and over the top accessories, perfect for a daring new year’s look. Paired with leather pants, sheer dresses, fur coats and a lot of bling, these sets can easily transition from the bedroom to the club. The “Whisper to Me” set makes the perfect risqué top for a night out, a sheer dot mesh bralette is paired with a waist cincher with perfectly placed black and nude colored panels for a slimming, hour-glass effect. I really appreciated the adjustability of the corset-esque piece, which had both grommets to lace up or an easy hook and eye closure in the back. What I really can’t get over is the airy, featherlight mesh used on all Mapale products. It’s so soft and light it’s basically like wearing your birthday suit.

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

The same mesh is also used in the total femme-fatale “Sophisticated in Stripes” set. Holy bondage bombshell, I’m drooling over the delicate strappy details on the bra and waist of the panty. This panty style features a strappy waist tie that crisscrosses in the back and fastens with a shiny gold hook in the front at your belly button. I’ve never seen a bottom like this and really liked the adjustability for a perfect fit. You also get this in the bra, which has cups made of that magic mesh that fits anywhere from an A to full C cup in the size SM/MED. The “Sophisticated in Strips” bra has already turned into another favorite of mine, I wore it all day after the shoot, the mesh is so light you forget it’s there.

The Father Christmas of Lingerie

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

“We find carrying as many different sizes as possible to be valuable to our customers, because we know not every woman is the same and we want to be able to offer sexy lingerie to everyone.” -Bill Rowell

I really appreciated the practical way the website is set up, from sizing to the straight forward hi-res images showing the products as is, I have to say I have a new appreciation for a male-owned lingerie business. Bill Rowell has created the ultimate no-nonsense online lingerie shopping experience. The site is easy to navigate for husbands and boyfriends purchasing gifts, or for women to correctly select their size.

Product Review: Fashionably Festive in Foxy Lingerie

The site not only carries breath-taking lingerie in standard sizes, they offer an extensive range of plus size styles too, up to 4X. “We find carrying as many different sizes as possible to be valuable to our customers, because we know not every woman is the same and we want to be able to offer sexy lingerie to everyone,” says Bill. “If we have a product in both standard and plus sizes, we link them together in the product description so it’s easy to find the right size.”

I admire that Foxy Lingerie is right to the point—what you see is what you get, and we stand behind our products. This approach can only come from absolute confidence in one’s products, which I can personally vouch for as I’m on day three of wearing my “Hot for the Holidays” bralette, which I likely won’t take off until after Christmas. I hope I made Foxy Lingerie’s “nice list’’, because I can’t wait to see what collections they present in the New Year.
