{$100 Giveaway} Vanity Fair® Review of the Modern Coverage and Illumination Line

I'm the type of woman who literally swoons anytime I buy new undergarments. I love when I find good fitting (and reasonably priced) garments without driving 30 miles out of the way. Well, you can imagine my surprise when I was given the opportunity to review the Modern Coverage bra and Illumination® panty collections from Vanity Fair®. When I tore open the package I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful hues and silky fabrics. Any time I get new undergarments I like to read over the labels and see where I can wear the garments and still feel comfortable....more

A Discussion About Undergarments & Vanity Fair Bra Reviews (Plus a Giveaway!)

Okay ladies, we are about to get real personal here, because we're going to talk about undergarments today. Though they are often an afterthought (I mean, you don't exactly plan which bra you're going to wear the night before your workday), undergarments can affect how your clothing looks, so the topic's worth discussing, no? Now I'm not going to get into the whole "89% of American women are wearing the wrong bra size" thing. Instead I'm going to focus on why it's important to wear the right bra with the right clothing.  ...more

Rest in Peace Grannie Panties

The mundane relationship (can I call it that? a relationship?) I once had with my underwear turned sour after I had kids. I have drawers packed full of pre-child underthings that don't fit. I keep cramming myself into all of it like a 5' 2" sausage into a lacy casing, but it's uncomfortable and usually pretty unattractive. It's probably not healthy to use tight-fitting underwear as a punishment for an addiction to smoked brisket, but it's the only way I'll learn....more

That Coveted Hour-Glass Shape? It's Just Minutes Away.

If those hooks are just a quarter of an inch too high, you could appear as though you’ve got a cart of apples under your dress. Tweak that hook just a smidgen, and you have the power to elevate a simple white cotton shirt and jeans to Parisian levels. (Be sure to add a scarf. Silk? All the better.) When it comes to getting that svelte hour-glass shape we focus on the cut of the fabric, the line, and even invest hours at the gym. But most often we forget the most important element there is to style -- the foundation....more

On Bras and Bodies

When I was given the opportunity to review the Vanity Fair® Modern Coverage Collection of Bras and Illumination® Underwear, I was excited and nervous. New bras and I haven't always gotten along. My first post-baby, post-breastfeeding bra-shopping experience was not a pretty sight. I hadn't successfully breastfed for as long as I'd hoped, and I was struggling to make peace with my new figure. I went into the whole experience feeling, quite literally, deflated....more

Not yo Mama's Lingerie

I have lovingly given my body over to be ruined twice to carry my sweet boys. If that wasn't enough, I allowed the damage to go even further when I acted as milk cow for them both and often succumbed to brutal, biting torture. Anyone else who has done this knows one thing for sure:You will forever need a magical hold everything back up where it used to be bra.  Enter Vanity Fair® and their new Modern Coverage Collection Bras. ...more

The End of My Jiggly Juggs

As a blogger, I am often sent products for review, and I also purchase and test my own. There have only been a couple of occasions when a free product made me loyal to the brand.This is one of them.  I have a dear friend, Meagan, who absolutely cringes when she sees my lack of support (she tells me all the time). I’m aware that I needed improvement. I’ve been on the hunt for better bras for a couple of years now. I’d buy the so-called supportive bras that had larger cups, but no strap support. Some of those bras would be so thin that the slightest breeze caused “hardnippleitis."...more

Vanity Fair® Review (In Which We Talk About Our Underwear Some More.)

I'll be the first to admit that I'm kind of a bra snob. I've had it in my head for a while now that to get the right look on my hard-to-fit body, I am going to have to go with high-end boutique brands and shell out some cash. I haven't even given classic brands like Vanity Fair® a second glance, because surely they wouldn't fit me, right? Right? Wrong. All three of these bras fit me great, and we're talking without backfat and without ... spillage. My favorite of the three, because lord knows I like me some coverage, is the Vanity Fair® Advanced Support Underwire Bra....more

Vanity Fair Bras and Underwear Give a Strong Foundation for Your Wardrobe

It's official, 2012 is the year of the Great Mommy Makeover. Now that my son is in elementary school, I have no more excuses for schlubbing around in the same old tired wardrobe (note to self: it really is time for me to re-enter society). For a long, long time I went around thinking – who cares, life isn’t a fashion show! Then I read an interview with designer Marc Jacobs where he said we dress to show our respect for other people. At the end of the day, I can get with that concept and want to embrace it. See this photo from a couple of years ago?...more

The Latest from Vanity Fair, Plus a $100 Giveaway

In July I got the chance to partner with Lily of France to show off some bras they’d sent me and share some of my professional dress tips for those who work in the creative industry. Lily of France’s parent company, Fruit of the Loom, was so pleased with the response you guys had to that post that they wanted to pair up again to show off some more of their latest products, this time from their Vanity Fair® brand. First off, they've released a new Modern Coverage line of bras, which means that they’re cut and shaped a little differently from the traditional bras....more
