The Representation Project: Rewrite the Story. BuzzFeed dubbed this video “How Rigid Gender Expectations Harm Our Daughters And Sons,” and that’s pretty spot-on. Powerful clip. (via The Representation Project)
Cool video. Could definitely have benefited from the mention of those who do not fit into either ‘boy’ or ‘girl’ categories.
Anonymous asked: Hi! Do you know of any companies that make sleepwear/loungewear for larger-busted (but not necessarily plus-sized) women? I'm a size 4 but 32D, and all the pretty slips, bustiers, babydolls, etc, I can find have absolutely zero support in the bust department.
Good question! This is a real issue, I’ve found, with very few companies coming up with solid solutions. Here are the best options I know about:
Figleaves is making some nice full bust specific nightwear
UK full bust retailer Bravissimo also has lounge specifically for full busts
Full bust brand Freya does do nightwear, which is somewhat accommodating to full busts
Kris Line makes some full bust nightwear that is available at brastop. I’ve heard good things about these ones.
As far as indie brands, Sunday Intimates and Bijte are the two places I would look because they have some really pretty pieces for full busts
Anonymous asked: Hi! I know that this isn't strictly lingerie related, but have you heard of the "A Perfect 14" documentary film project? It's basically about size diversity in the fashion world and media in general. I thought it might be something you'd be interested in as lingerie models especially are predominantly white, thin girls and it's difficult for someone over a size 4 to feel represented a lot of the time. It'd be great if you could drop a mention of it on your blog as it needs the exposure. Thanks!
Anonymous asked: Im offended you are suggesting a cross dressing website.
I’m really sorry. Honestly, I wish there were many, better options available to trans women— however, if someone asks me for lingerie options to fit a person who was MAAB and has not been having good luck with the commonly available women’s lingerie options, then I have to try to give some more choices. I think that in my response and the accompanying trigger warning that I acknowledged that it was not going to be a gender affirming site, but might still offer some decent products at a reasonable price point.
geraldinewrenn asked: Do you have any recommendations for a vintage looking chiffon dressing gown? Preferably under $100, I need one for a pinup photoshoot in may.
Hmmm, have you looked at actual vintage pieces? They’re always my first go to because of the range of styles/ colors. If you search ‘peignoir’ especially there are some fun pieces that would be great for a photoshoot and usually quite affordable. After that, I would definitely suggest Bluebella: http://www.bluebella.com/products/bluebella-sheer-kimono/ for afforadability. Kiss Me Deadly and Dottie’s Delights both have nice products for over $100 though.
If there is ever a topic you really want a blog post about OR if you have questions you think could be answered with a post, feel free to email me at email@example.com or answer this post. Any pressing issues I should address now?
There are also some brands marketed to the crossdressing community that can also work for trans women, such as Homme Mystere (as long as you don’t find the concept/ store too triggering, as it is explicitly targeted towards ‘men’). If you have questions about a certain size range or other specific concerns, I can try to help more!
You've heard of a lipstick lesbian? Well, I'm a lingerie lesbian and this is a blog to celebrate that. I'm a lady who likes ladies and I have an unhealthy obsession with cute panties, corsets & garter belts, so that's what this is going to full of. I will also probably rant about femininity, sexuality and queerness and how all that fits in with lingerie. Enjoy :)
