Sophisticated Pair Holiday Buying Guide for Every Budget

Hello Everyone,

Say what you will about over-commercialization, Christmas music before Thanksgiving, and a crazy feeding frenzy for the best deals, but the holidays are one of my favorite times of year.  For our family, it is not without its pain as well, but I like to focus on how many of us put aside our own needs and focus on giving to someone else, whether that’s a loved one or a local charity.  Unfortunately, for some small businesses, this can also be a time of year when things are the hardest.  For us, customers pinch pennies to increase their spending budgets on presents for their friends and family and forgo buying something new for themselves.  As a result, I am putting aside my personal ambivalence regarding buying guides and have created one exclusively for the products we carry in the shop.  Even if you are not in the market for yourself right now, we still have some great present ideas all of which are under $100!  Most of these are available for purchase in our newly upgraded online store, and to make things convenient, all you need to do is click on the picture to go directly to the product page.  From now until midnight November 30th, our entire online store will be 10% off plus free shipping with code “TURKEY10”!  Lastly, I have written reviews on quite a few of these products in the past, and if you would like to learn more before ordering, check out our reviews tab!  Happy Shopping!

  • Inner Truth Panties:  Manufactured by a small business here in the US, Inner Truth panties turn the “Words on Underwear” gimmick on its head and instead feature hand-embroidered messages of inspiration for the wearer to read in the mirror.
  • Kix’ies:  Hold-ups with style, Kix’ies feature a range of stocking patterns and deniers all with multiple layers of silicone gel at the top to ensure they stay put as you move.
  • Eucalan Wash:  An ideal gift for anyone on your wish list, Eucalan makes one of the best washing soaps on the market.  The hypoallergenic formula is gentle enough for delicate fabrics like silk and wool, and the rinse-less formula cuts washing time in half!
  • Silky Lingerie Bag:  Large enough to comfortably fit sweaters, socks, and blouses, the Braza Silky Lingerie bag uses finely ventilated mesh to avoid grading fabric while still allowing soap and water to pass through easily.
  • Perfect Cami:  Another “Made in the USA” small business, Perfect Camis attach to your bra straps and wrap all the way around the back to give added coverage for lower necklines or jackets without needing to wear a full camisole or tank.
  • Affinitas Cupcake Panties:  An adorable gift idea, the Affinitas Cupcake Packs contain three cardboard cupcakes inside of which is either a hipster or a thong.  They are easy to wrap and each cupcake presents another opportunity for revealing a surprise!
  • Glamory:  Available up to a 4XL in store, Glamory uses fine laces at the top of the stockings and wide bands of silicone gel for a comfortable, durable fit which stays put.
  • Jewelry Bags by Elizabeth:  Elizabeth Corsini is truly a creative, beautiful person.  She made our custom stockings for the store, but she also makes these charming jewelry bags.  Using heavy silk fabric, the bags sport interior pockets to keep jewelry separated and a drawstring top to condense for easy storage.

  • Silk & Soul PJ Set:  Ideally designed for mix-and-match, this affordable PJ line uses soft fabrics in gorgeous colors and eye-catching prints for a fun sleep and lounge set!
  • Yummie by Heather Thompson Rachel Leggings:  Composed of a heavier cotton/spandex blend, these leggings from Yummie gently smooth the stomach without feeling overly tight, and the denser fabric weave negates any potential sheerness.
  • Yummie by Heather Thompson Stephanie Tanks:  Made from a temperature regulating fabric, the Stephanie tanks sport both a scoop and a v-neck for added versatility and gently smooths the tummy.  Because of the flexible sizing, you do not need to know the exact size to purchase in order to ensure a nice fit.

  • Fleur’t with Me PJ Set:  Impossibly soft, the Fleur’t with Me Wild Child collection interweaves beautifully, allowing you the option of interchanging the pieces for added versatility.  As a bonus, many of the pieces from Wild Child also work with the Silk & Soul collections too!
  • Parfait Charlotte Set:  Channeling an old school burlesque vibe, the Parfait Charlotte utilizes black piping accents on the cups and straps along with over-sized bows for a cute, wallet-friendly design.
  • Parfait Destiny Set:  Based on the best-selling Charlotte frame, the Destiny features a 3-section lightly padded cup, fully-adjustable straps, and a wide wing for extra side support. Adorned with a flat, wine-colored lace and a satin exterior side sling, the Destiny channels an old world sophistication, and thoughtful finishing touches like lace-up center gore detail and center front bows add subtle glamour.
  • Skarlett Blue Adore Set:  With soft molded cups and contrast lace trim, the Adore Bra provides a rounded, seamless silhouette under knits. Rose gold hardware and angled butterfly-inspired frame stand out in the best possible way.
  • Wacoal Halo Lace Bra Set:  Using a cross-dye lace pattern to create subtle differences in color, the Halo Lace provides a comfortable fit and a lightweight style while fully-adjustable straps feature an optional J-hook to convert into a racerback.  Choose from a bikini or short for the matching underwear.
  • Affinitas Molly Set:  Soft mesh fabric embroidered with floral blooms and leaves adorns the outside of the cup on Molly and extends onto the skin for a peek-a-book effect while the wings and cradle feature a tonal polka dot print.  A gorgeous hipster perfectly compliments the bra for a stunning set!

Under $100

  • Tia Lyn Euphoria Set:  Ornate grey and silver embroidery contrasts with decadently soft modal blend fabric in the Tia Lyn Euphoria set.  Perfect for anyone who wants a gorgeous lingerie set which is also comfortable, the Euphoria chemise has built-in bust support and lining while the comfy hipsters complete the set.
  • Parfait Alexis Babydoll Set:  Anyone wanting classic black lingerie with more structure need look no further!  The Parfait by Affinitas Alexis babydoll features soft, darted floral lace cups with interior padded slings for an improved lift and shape.  Breathable, sheer mesh bottom drapes effortlessly over curves while fully-adjustable straps, wide wings, side stays, and underwires provide the same support as a normal bra.  Babydoll has an accompanying bikini but works well with any black knicker.
  • Parfait Kitty Babydoll Set:  Deep red fabric contrasts beautifully with black accents, and an allover polka dot print, ruffled hem, and over-sized center bow amplify the drama of the Kitty babydoll. The three-section cup features lined fabric on the bottom and side for impressive lift while side stays, underwires, and partially-adjustable straps add to the fit and support.
  • Panache Georgia Bra Set:  Based on the Sienna frame, the Panache Georgia offers incredible support and shaping as an everyday bra with the gorgeous details of a special occasion piece.  Deep pink mesh offsets a charcoal overlay on the lower cup and an ornate lace on the upper cup.  Embroidered cradle and charcoal straps complete the look.  Buy the matching brief for a beautiful set.
  • Cleo Kali Bra Set:  An updated version of the best-selling Cleo Lucy, the Kali bra sports a three-section cup design and bandless frame to offer support and projection.  The lovely, rich purple compliments any skin tone, and the matching ruffled brief is adorable.
  • Le Mystere Safari Set:  A tee shirt bra with a twist, the Safari uses a padded cup and plunging neckline for perfect cleavage.  Deep Italian rose color works well as a traditional holiday color while the leopard print upper panel adds some spice.
