Looking Back, Looking Forward

As we enter our 12th year at Little Pink Dress and 8th year at Brabarella, we would like to take this time to look back and thank all of our customers. It's not easy being a small family business in a large corporate world, but we're managing to hang on and maintain our tiny little niche in the competitive world of lingerie. To those customers who have come back year after year, we especially thank you. We couldn't have survived this long without you.
      If you haven't ordered from us before, please give us a try. We ship world-wide and our rates -both domestic and international, are very reasonable. Our regular product prices are often better than competitor's sale prices.
     If you're a fan of ours (i.e., you like the photos) but don't have an actual need for or interest in lingerie, you can still help us. You can recommend us to others, link to us, and also let us know if others are using our photos without crediting (we have had a lot of help in this regard). Feedback is also appreciated - just keep it appropriate.
     Here's to a hopeful New Year!

Two Weeks and Counting!

Christmas is now two weeks away. We’re not into the commercialism of the holidays (although lingerie sales are always a good thing) but rather enjoy some extra time off, strolls, Christmas lights, friends, family, and our old Christmas movies. Shown above is the Maidenform Comfort Devotion Body Briefer (formerly under their Flexees name) now available here again. Have a great weekend!

We're No Angels

It's Christmas movie time. One of our favorites is 'We're No Angels" with Peter Ustinov, Humphrey Bogart and Aldo Ray. It's an annual must-see.

Little Pink Dress Update

We're slowly rebuilding Little Pink Dress. The menu (across the top of the page) is still a little difficult to manage but eventually we'll get things straightened out. We've added about two dozen items to our vintage section the past few days. Much more to come.

Arianne Catherine Teddy

It’s never too early to start your holiday shopping. The Arianne Catherine Teddy would be a great gift. We don’t have too many in stock, so the sooner you order, the better.

Va Bien Hourglass Waist Cincher

Shown here is the Va Bien Hourglass Waist Cincher, available in black or white and available here at Brabarella Lingerie. In other news, we had our first frost overnight, as the temperature dipped to 29 degrees. Brrrrrr!!!! It's supposed to get warmer tomorrow though.

Rain Rain Go Away

It’s been a rainy week here on Cape Cod. After such a dry summer it is welcome – up to a point. It’s past that point now. The last couple of years it seems as though we’ve been getting all of our precipitation in spurts, followed by long periods of dryness. I would say drought, but it’s not that bad – yet. Anyway, we’ve had several inches of rain this week with more on the way. Stay dry and safe this weekend!

Man in the Moon

Even with the noise, light, and air pollution of our city here on the cape, we were able to watch last night's lunar eclipse! The sky was a brilliant drama to behold, light and dark clouds drifting in a an otherwise clear, star struck sky, moon and sun engaged in their mysterious dance -- and I even glimpsed the man in the moon!

Through the Looking Glass

When time permits after a Brabarella shoot, we like to try to get creative with portraiture, art/nude or just plain ol' dress up. Here's Cha Cha in the looking glass.

Busy Bee

We've been busy in the garden of late. The sunflowers are out early this summer. Most just popped up on their own, having reseeded themselves from last year.

Two Shades of Black

Stocking shades can be tricky business. One of the most common questions we're asked is what's the difference between black (or Jet, or Fantasy Black), and Off Black (or "Barely Black"). Simply put, black is black, taking into account how light or dark your skin is and whether the stockings are sheer or ultra sheer (all-nylon). Off black is more of a gray-ish color. Shown here are Berkshire 1550's in Fantasy Black and Off Black. The photos were taken during the same session using the same camera and the same model. As they say, results may vary, but you can at least get the idea.

Spring is Finally in the Air

Thanks for these photos Dave! We are finally dug out here on Cape Cod and most of the snow is gone - just a few remaining mounds. It finally hit 50 here today, the crocuses are out and the daffodils have poked their way through the muddy soil.

Snowshoeing to work

28" of snow here in Hyannis from yesterday's storm. We finally got to use our snowshoes for the first time in many a year. We were actually going to the office, but as you can see below, we should have brought a shovel!
