Check out my friend Lauren Brooker’s artwork, it’s amazing
I have just read an article: A working life: The lingerie designer,
I have picked out a few quotes that I found interesting, or connect to. I want people to have an incite on lingerie. It’s something every woman needs yet it so overlooked.
- “Lingerie is all about engineering and I loved the challenge of reconciling that with the aesthetics of undergarments. It’s harder to do something really different with a bra than with a dress because you can’t change the basic shape or volume.”
- ”You buy it because it pleases you, not because you’re being dictated to by other people or brands. There’s no peer pressure in lingerie, so it can be more of an indulgence.”
- There are more than 26 components in the most basic bra, more than any other garment, and over 30 stitching operations are required to assemble them. And although to the untutored eye, most bra and knicker shapes look similar, Taylor says they can be altered in innumerable subtle ways simply by how the seams are positioned and fabrics combined.
- Men - “They tend to switch off when I tell them what I do, because they associate lingerie with sexuality and their minds start wandering to other areas,” she says. “They assume that if you’re a lingerie designer you must be thinking about sex all the time!”
’You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you’ Bob Marley
Just spied this in a Bob Marley quote while scrolling, Really connected to this and feel this is so true. Anyone holding up boundaries, and trying to find love, you will never find love if you don’t take that risk.
