A few weeks ago I asked you guys to help me come up with ideas for nice, inexpensive gifts. Faustineli (awesome bra blog at that link) mentioned that she does a lot of knitting. Now I’ve never knitted, and besides, my sister-in-law has pretty much cornered the market on knitting in this family. However, I remembered that I used to know how to crochet and I didn’t hate doing it. So I thought, why not give it a go?
I have become a crocheting monster.
Yay, my not-at-all-a-surprise Christmas presents from my husband are here! Parfait’s Donna (bra size 32E, boyshorts size medium) arrived first, so I thought I should review it first.
Yeah, there’s a filter on that. It makes me feel better; I’m pretty naked there.
First of all, I am so happy to have a black bra again. This is the first black set I’ve gotten in my “correct size,” and man, I’ve missed it! Which means that I’m currently being fairly forgiving of some not-so-great issues I’m having. Actually, just one issue. See if you can spot it: Continue reading
If anyone is interested, I have some bras for sale on Bratabase. I would prefer to manage the transactions through Bratabase itself because I agree with the owner that it’s nice when the bras remain in-network for research purposes. So hop on over there and check it out. And if you don’t have an account, make one! US shipping costs are included in all of the prices. I can ship worldwide, but I may need to add a shipping cost. All payments through Paypal.
Here’s what I’m selling (my reviews are linked if I wrote one):
One week until Christmas! I have so much stuff to do! I’m super behind schedule! Which is why you guys are getting a holiday wishlist at an incredibly late date. I honestly don’t know if anyone can still ship this stuff by next Wednesday without expensive rush fees. Sorry about that. But, hey, New Years gifts are nice, too!
First up, the Angie set from Masquerade.

Reminiscent of Parfait’s Charlotte, with those black stripes, but in a deeper (and fancier, in my opinion) red. Less “cheesecake,” more “opulence.” Not that there’s anything wrong with cheesecake; you know how I love my Charlotte. Angie balconette available in 28-38 D-H, briefs and thong in 8-18.
Today in Things That Have Nothing To Do With Bras, I just want to brag about my little girl. Because I can. I don’t talk about my children too much on the blog because of general security concerns. And, well, basically I don’t want their online images to be heavily associated with a lingerie blog. But both of my children are a huge part of my life and I love them more than anything, so occasionally bragging is in order.
There she is, standing dramatically in the rain. Yeah, she’s a monkey.
Hi, you guys! I know I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks, but I’m back now. Today I have some basic lingerie gifting advice for you, and a preview of some stuff that I’ll be reviewing soon.
If anyone was wondering, it turns out that what I went to the ER for was just a really bad stomach bug. Which is, to be honest, still hanging around (or has exasperated my slight IBS) but I don’t have to live in the bathroom anymore. So…yay!
Welp, I slept (and puked) all day and I’m writing this from the ER where I’m getting fluids and pain meds for what is hopefully just a stomach virus. I might be taking a few days off from blogging. Just wanted to keep you guys updated!
