How to make lace edged underwear

Confession time….the problem I have with store-bought underwear is the elastic at the legs. It’s got a stranglehold on my legs it seems, especially when I am sitting at the computer.

Boob Camp October 2017

We held Boob Camp October 2017 recently and it was a bittersweet time for all of us. It was to be, not only the last Boob Camp in our old building but our last class of the year. We had hoped to be in the new location to have these last few classes, but it […]

European Lingerie Tour Paris

On to our second city in the tour – here is the European Lingerie Tour Paris Edition! Along with Mrs. Weaver and our energetic band of 20, we left London and travelled via the “Chunnel” (the train tunnel under the English Channel) then overland to Paris. This trip only took us a surprisingly short 4 hours. […]
