Real Talk. Real Women. Real Lingerie.



Lingerie isn’t for other women, it’s for you, because it’s for me. My mom grew up in an orphanage where they weren’t allowed to say the word “bra” because it was considered indelicate. They were referred to as “brays” – yes, the sound a donkey makes. But for my first First Holy Communion, my mom Continue Reading

It is the kind of town where kids ride their bikes, carrying surfboards up to the beach. Entire families spill out Continue Reading
