Feminism and lingerie, are they linked? I have been thinking about this for a long time. And when I mean long, I mean years. On the eve of International Women’s Day, I am feeling inspired to write about women’s rights and lingerie. And why not? After all, I am a multi-faceted female that demands equality and pretty lingerie at the same time. Does that make me less of a feminist? I think not.
I've been vacationing in Lille for Christmas and was pleasantly surprised to stumble across the Livy store on the rue de la Grande Chaussee. To be completely honest, I hadn't heard of Livy until my charming shopping experience, so I did some research. Below is a recount of my experience in the store and a bit of background information about the brand.
Okay, let's be real honest about this whole Victoria’s Secret runway model thing. Since the Victoria’s Secret Chief Marketing Officer, Ed Razek said to Vogue: “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t. It’s like, why doesn’t your show do this? Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy.” I’ve been angry. Really angry.
Tame the wild
Tame the red
Beat it, cut it, pull it out.
Welcome to my lingerie blog. A passion project that has started from my personal love of the intimates industry. I am especially interested in the intersection of feminist issues with the lingerie industry and how they come together and are received by the consumer.
