The Underpinnings Museum - Of Space Suits and Lingerie

The-Underpinnings-Museum-photography-by-Tigz-Rice-Studios.jpg

The Underpinnings Museum - no people in space without our underpinnings, who knew! It was the craftsmanship of lingerie seamstresses and company Playtex who built the first space suits. Didn't know that? Me neither - until I watched the video pitch for the super awesome kickstarter that started today: The Underpinnings Museum.

Their kickstarter describes it like this:
As frivolous as it may seem on the surface, underwear plays a pretty important role in people's lives. Documentation of lingerie in the larger world of fashion isn't as extensive as other areas, and it is important to document these beautiful objects for the future. These delicate garments are a finite resource that cannot last forever: in many instances, century old silk is already fragile and beginning to shatter. The online museum offers a perfect platform to record these items before they succumb to the ravages of time."

[Review] Fairytales by Angela Friedman

I owe you this review for over half a year. I've been a bad blogger. BUT I'm super active on social media, I recently also caved and joined instagram - come find me at @kurvendiskussionen over there! - and I am now officially a facebook person too. So, yay?

Anyway, after my short and super awesome holiday in London - which deserves its own blogpost - I'm motivated to write ALL the things. So I'm starting with reviewing this darling set i bought last year from Angela Friedman's Fairytale by AF line!

Angela Friedman makes gorgeous luxurious lingerie in her studio in North Carolina (which, btw, if you sign in to her Newsletter you get 10% off on your first order. You're welcome.) and besides making her high price works of art she also launched a lower budget and super cute line - Fairytales by AF. The Fairytales line is super pastel, super frilly, super fun, super girly, super cute. The Fairytales Line is available via her website and also her etsy store.

Alles kickass Frauen die diese kleinen Firmen besitzen.

 

[Review] Karolina Laskowska Ania and Liliana

Karolina Laskowska Liliana Bra

It’s safe to say that Karolina Laskowska is my favourite underwear designer. Ever. In the years I followed her career it was impressive to see how she already started her business while she was still in college and built a brand and name - a force to be reckoned with! Also, from what glimpses I caught of her as a person she just really rocks. And long haired metal chicks are always something good for the world.
When she is not elbow deep in gorgeous lace or vintage kimono silk for her collections she's also seen creating beautiful bespoke pieces. In 2014 she then won the "New Designer of the Year" award of the UK Lingerie Awards, she is a regular columnist for The Lingerie Addict and blogs about lingerie, corsets, vintage underthings and more on her blog Knickerbocker Stories. And her family has quality pics of their dog which totally made my day.

There are rumours that she also sleeps and eats, but I'm not sure whether those are true ;)

I already reviewed one piece by Karolina Laskowska on my blog, many moons ago. Last time it was a sample piece bra of her pre-college era.
This time I’m proud to be able to show you one whole set and a bra, after college era, and I can say MIND BLOWN.

[Review] ParaNoire Design "Leo Leo Lace"

Leo Leo Lace Kitty

Vor einem Monat circa habe ich ein verlängertes Wochenende im ParaNoire Design Hauptquartier verbringen dürfen, und heute gibts endlich die Review von dem super niedlichen Set das sie während meines Aufenthaltes für mich gemacht hat!
Den rosa leo stretch tüll habe ich schon eine ganze Weile her gekauft und mir daraus ein paar kleine Accessoires gemacht, aber die ganze Zeit dachte ich schon daran wie nett nicht ein Wäscheset daraus wäre - darum habe ich den Stoff kurzerhand mit auf die #bracation genommen. Eva und ich haben dann gemeinsam entschieden, was für Schnitte wir (sie) verwenden und dann hat Evi ein zuckersüßes Bralet Set für mich gezaubert! Das set wird eventuell so ähnlich auch mal als limited edition im Shop erhältlich sein, ich habe den restlichen Stoff nämlich Eva geschenkt - für Panty Science!

[Brand Portrait] Nubian Skin

Nubian Skin

Have you ever bought or searched for skintone underwear, be it bras, knickers or hosiery, before? Considering you are reading my blog chances are high you have.

Here’s what comes up if you search for a bra in the colour option “nude” and size 34C (I picked a common size for high street brands) at massive online underwear retailer with a rather well picked selection of nice lingerie brands: figleaves.co.uk.

Results were a couple of pages long, this is a screenshot of the first and second page. Do you notice anything?
