I’ve been obsessed with drag for as long as I’ve known it existed. I remember watching The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert as a tween and loving it. So when I found out that one of my favorite local New Orleans performers, Vinsantos, offered a program that would teach anyone the art of drag, I was in. I enrolled in Cycle 2 of the New Orleans Drag Workshop in 2014 (Cycle 8 is about to start), along with 11 gay men and one other...

I can honestly say that I’ve never really paid attention to elbows. Certainly not as much as the Victorians seemed to do. They prized a delicately rounded female elbow—and abhorred one that was too sharp and pointy. Even gentlemen fell in for their share of elbow-shaming. According to Victorian etiquette manuals, a pointy male elbow was worse than unattractive. It could also be dangerous. As the author of The Etiquette of Love, Courtship, and Marriage (1859) relates: “I once heard of a tall, bony gentleman, who...

We’ve loved artist and designer Tuesday Bassen since we first laid eyes on her feisty, feminist illustrations. When she launched a full-fledged women’s clothing collection of cheeky tees, satin jackets, and more for sizes XS to 5X, it cemented our fangirl status. Now she’s added a handful of high-waisted cotton undies to her made-in-L.A. line, sticking with her playful and size-inclusive standard. With a flattering (and, may we add, full back coverage) cut with Japanese elastic and contrasting panels, the panties feature the kind of...
It’s 88 degrees in Brooklyn as I write this, but we’ve only got another month or so before my favorite season arrives—fall. While at this point in the year I’m pretty sick of my summer clothes, I also don’t want to buy things that I’ll wear for five weeks before putting away until next June. So, here are a bunch of dresses that will take you from summer to fall. How? For summer, pair them with sandals and not much else—maybe some sunglasses, a giant...

  Hi there, busty BUSTies. I can see from Google Analytics that search engines have led you to my roundup of boob-supportive swimsuits published in 2016. Since many of those swimsuits are no longer available, I decided to do a quick update here. I’ve got pretty “heavy boobs,” as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend puts it, and spending hours in a swimsuit without good boob support can kill my neck/my back. When I finally got a swimsuit that offers bra-like support and is also incredibly cute (thanks GabiFresh X SwimsuitsForAll), I...
