Wowsa! The fact that I’m just getting to this post speaks to deep, deep pool of BUSY that Meredith and I have been swimming through lately. New hires, buying trips, visiting families/friends/dogs, wedding planning and the occasional desire to do something summery and NON-work related, have kept me from this blog. Big time.
So I know this is late in coming, but I really want you all to see some of the stunners that we saw whilst in NYC a week or so ago. So pardon my tardy-for-the-party blogging and enjoy a teeny glimpse into SS13 lingerie.
Variations on classic styles
PRINTS to swim in!
Taking bralets to another level
My fave long-line, soft cup bra from Fortnight in grown up Easter egg colors.
We’ll be posting more as the week goes on…but for now, we hope you like what you see. Get excited.
How much do we love Spring from Elle Macpherson?!
We love it a lot.
You will too!
The always amazing Cloud Swing Contour bra in Eclipse Blue ($68)…
…and the Underwire (unlined) version of Cloud Swing ($68)
Gentle Jade Chemise in Vintage Cream ($98)
Gifts for your best friend can be tricky.
They need to be perfect. They need to be intimate. And they can’t be the same thing that you bought her last year.
Enter the following bras.
At an excellent price point, these little lovelies are everyday wearable and all totally original gifts for your best girl.
With its wide size range (30 bands and large cups!) Claudette’s Dessous is perfect for all shapes and sizes.
Plus the see-through black mesh is pretty hot.
Demi cups give a subtle lift without a lot of padding.
A happy medium!
A bestseller here at Forty Winks, the OG Bump it Up is the perfect t-shirt bra.
You can twist the center for more or less cleavage too!
I’m loving Vanity Fair’s Fairground so so much this month.
(Oh hello strapless jumpsuit coming down the stairs)
I’m thrilled by how some of these ladies have incorporated lingerie into their looks while still looking sophisticated and classy. It’s a look that’s easy to try and so much fun to wear.
Personally, I’m quite smitten with the sweetly see-through cream top and highwaisted trouser look worn by Bianca Brandolini D’Adda.
And if you’d like to replicate, we recommend the following bras for your lingerie looks.
Perhaps the most perfectly wearable piece of lingerie for underneath sheer tops is the Angie long line bra from Fortnight, a Canadian line arriving soon at Forty Winks. Stay tuned!
It was a wild summer here at Forty Winks.
Along with our day-to-day duties, there was an engagement (Rachel) , a house purchase (Meredith), buying trips to NYC, weddings, babies, birthdays, family reunions…you name it, this Summer brought it.
And while these happenings were happy, exciting and GOOD, a little bit of exhaustion crept in and it become glaringly obvious that we needed a real, live weekend away.
So we packed up two cute boys, two even cuter dogs, a bunch of food/beer/wine and headed for Vinalhaven, ME.
With absolutely no cell phone service (iPhone, you can’t haunt us here!) and Atlantic on all sides (yeah, it’s an island) Meredith and I were actually able to relax. One morning I read on the deck for two hours. TWO HOURS!
Never without lingerie on our brains, we started comparing the colors we were finding on our walks along the gorgeous shoreline with some of the pieces at Forty Winks right now. Meredith, our resident photographer, was able to beautifully capture the subtle similarities between the colors and textures of the Maine coast with the stunning lingerie on our racks for Fall.

Due to its ability to elicited both terror and full on glee in me, the Zipper was always my favorite ride as a kid.
And while the ones I rode at the Blue Hill Fair didn’t look quite as ethereal as this (understatement of the year), I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic looking at this shot…
What was your favorite fair ride?
On a side note…
The whimsical colors remind me of our newest addition from Elle Macpherson Intimates…the Dentelle Contour.
This newbie is just as pretty as the Dentelle Underwire, but with a light lining for coverage and a little push up.
Here are a few new and exciting pieces hitting our racks…
