Despite the fairly personal nature of my blog, I never get that personal - but let me tell you a little secret: I love lingerie. Love. Frills and lace and ruffles make me swoon. It's actually not unlike my love for glitter, or pink, or Parisian things - if I really stop to think about it. In any case, the utility and necessity for undergarments in my life (especially as a particularly busty lady), have made the search for underthings that are actually beautiful all the more challenging. I've found a few brands I love (like Panache and Freya), but the bottom line has been that the pickings are slim, and I'd happily, enthusiastically, and excitedly welcome new additions to the line-up.
And that's where Josie Natori comes in! I met designer Josie Natori last fall during a Target Style preview at Vogue, and instantly fell in love with her. Mrs. Natori has an enormous heart, talent, and a true passion for making fashion and style and beautiful things accessible for all women. The Natori lingerie line has been hugely successful, but Mrs. Natori was on a mission to cater to the DD+ set, as well - and set out to launch N by Natori. Ladies, these pieces aren't just gorgeous, they're comfortable - and let's be honest, as vain as we (or I) might be about the aesthetics of our underpinnings, comfort really is key. I've practically been living in this particular bra, and lord, does it feel good on! I teamed up with the Natori team to celebrate the launch of the new line - such an exciting event for me! There are few things I appreciate more than having the opportunity to work with designers and brands that I really respect.

So, can we talk bras and breasts? What do you look for in your lingerie and undergarments? Busty ladies, are there particular brands that you go to and trust? Let's discuss. Seriously. The good, the bad, the ugly - even (and especially?) the underwire-popping-out horror stories!
A special thank you to the Natori team for creating such great pieces and inviting me to share them!
