Introducing one of the new brands on the indie lingerie market, Faelyn. Faelyn Lingerie is a organic lingerie line that is all about organic materials and sustainability. Made in Brooklyn NY! I’m such a huge fan of green brands, and this brand features dream white and dusty rose pieces in their debut collection. They have a beautiful bodysuit, bottoms, tops, and have a pre-order available for a bralette and slip. I’m so excited about this brand! I love the simplicity of soft organic fabric used to make modern silhouettes that are both versatile, classic, and always on trend. Check out the entire collection at Faelyn Lingerie.
I get asked sometimes what lingerie brands are ideal if you’re on a budget, and a great budget brand is the Felina family of brands (which includes Jezebel, and all brands under Designer Intimates). They have some great simple yet cute bra and panty sets, as well as nightwear like chemises and babydolls. All for under $50, with most pieces around $25. That is really affordable, and the quality is good for that price point. Felina/Jezebel is probably one of the best brands in that price range. The folks over at Designer Intimates set me an assortment of new nightwear pieces, including their cute ruffles babydolls and their lace chemise.
Can you tell that I like the color blue? 😉 So many great options! Most of these pieces are under $25! Thats pretty awesome for these on trend prints and colors. The Ruffles Galore Babydoll is so colorful and I love the ruffles, which just adds a fun flirty vibe. The Ruffle Animal Babydoll merges the same design as Ruffle Galore but adds a colorful tiger print colorway. The brand new Ruffle Dot Babydoll features a cute vintage inspired navy with polka dots print. Their Rachel Chemise is made of stretch lace, with padded cups. All of the babydolls feature hook and eye closures on the band, and padded cups. The sizing is generous. I went with a size Large, just so it would fit my bust, my bust was a bit large but the band fit fine and the cups were almost a good fit, I was spilling out a bit but thats because these are probably ideal for DD-D cups at the most. Bands fitting up to 36-38 at my best guess, as the sizing goes up to size Large. I’ve tried other budget brands, and I really do think that Felina is my favorite when it comes to budget lingerie. Their quality is really good for the price point, and a cute ruffle on trend babydoll for around $25, you can’t beat this brand.
I’m a huge fan of Stockingirl’s gorgeous hosiery. It’s well made, affordable, and comes in a variety of styles and colors. I was thinking of pretty stockings and stay ups for Summertime, and saw that Stockingirl released their Liza metallic sparkle thigh highs in Summer colors! Basically bright pink, turquoise blue, yellow and mint green. Beautiful brights to coordinate all Summer long. I loved all of the colors, but was mostly curious about the blue, yellow and green. They only had a stock photo of the pink color, and they looked super cute, so I knew I wanted to review these on the blog. Stockingirl Liza Metallic Sparkle Thigh Highs in Summer Colors are so my jam. I got the bright turquoise blue, which is so bright and fun. I wasn’t expecting the color to be so rich, but it looks like a blue raspberry ice pop! Made of sheer 15 denier nylon material, with lace tops and silicone bands inside to make them stay in place. The thigh highs themselves have a subtle metallic shimmer that is really pretty and unique. I normally wearing size Small or XS in hosiery, but these were sized S/M, ML, and Queen 1 and 2. I went with the S/M and the fit is good for sure. I’m short and petite, but they worked well without over stretching or coming up too high on my thigh like some stay ups do. I love the lace top welt, the lace is gorgeous actually, especially in the bright blue color. I want to try all of the Summer colors, and eventually get the green, yellow, and pink now too. These are so playful and will be fun for mixing and matching in the warm weather!
I love how bright these are! The blue is perfect, with just a light shimmer, without looking too sparkly. The lace is comfortable and fits well on the thigh. The bottom shows how it fits at my thigh. I’m a bit short, so they tend to come up a bit higher on me, as most thigh highs do. This is one of my favorite shades of blue. I was expecting a bit more of a pastel blue from the photo swatch on the website, I think these would look super cute in a softer pastel shade too, but the brightness was a pleasant surprise and now I want to see what the green and yellow look like!
