[New] Lingerie of the Week: La Perla ‘Shape Allure’ Underwire Slip

I know this slip is technically underwear, but let’s just be real here - I’d wear it as a dress. There are lots of things I love about this slip: the lace hem and detailing along the sides and I adore the adjustable straps (imagine wearing this halter, crisscross back, or strapless…I hardly ever get so excited about straps, but the I love the possibilities here). 

What do you think? Is this something you’d like to wear - either as a dress or as underwear?

[TLA Flashback] La Perla Spring/Summer 2012 Campaign

Theses photos from La Perla’s S/S 2012 are fresh, fashion-forward, and, of course, breathtakingly beautiful. Best of all, they pay homage to vintage editorials without actually becoming vintage editorials.

NYC storefront ditches mannequin with protruding ribs
La Perla’s SoHo window display featured a mannequin with sharply protruding ribs dressed in a bikini and holding a beach towel. After an image of the window made its way to the internet, though, the brand was quick to issue an apology for its poor decision.

My thoughts, via the TLA Facebook page:
So this photo from La Perla has been circulating the internet all day, and while I probably won’t write a blog post on it, I did want to comment on it as a lingerie blogger (especially since La Perla, after all, is a lingerie brand). There's nothing inherently offensive about a ribcage. Some women have visible rib cages. This doesn't mean they have an eating disorder or that they're starving to death or that they're in any way unhealthy. It just means you can see the outline of their ribs (which could be caused by a naturally large ribcage and/or low body fat). There’s a very wide range of “healthy” and “normal” for women’s bodies. Some women are on the thin side. Some women are on the thick side. And what you may or may not personally find attractive or “sexy” is a completely separate conversation from health. The two should not be confused. I wish that, instead of removing the mannequins entirely, La Perla saw this as an opportunity to diversify the sizes of the mannequins they use in their stores. There’s nothing wrong with having a thin mannequin. But there is a problem when ALL the mannequins are thin. Turning this conversation into a war on ribcages completely misses the point.
