  • 5 Things Every Bride Must Have For Their Honeymoon

    Planning a wedding can be extremely overwhelming. So much time and energy goes into planning the perfect day for you and your guests that many times planning the honeymoon can be completely neglected. Finishing up last minute details and seat arrangements are usually all that is on your mind days before the wedding day, which means that many brides completely forget about packing for their honeymoon or leave it until the last minute. So instead of leaving your packing to the last minute, get ahead of the game and plan out what you will pack along on your new adventure as a married couple. That is why we have come up with 5 Things Every Bride Must Have for their honeymoon. We hope these tips help you focus on your special day instead of stressing about packing a last minute bag.

    1. A versatile Bikini Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 2.49.42 PM

    You should bring a few bikinis on your honeymoon but make sure to pack one that will be the star of the show. Since you are a blushing bride, you have to pack at least one white bikini and one that is a bandeau is even better. After all that wedding prep and getting a perfectly even tan, there is no use in ruining all of that hard work! We love this scalloped bandeau suit by Marysia. Perfect for your honeymoon escape!

    2. A Big Hat 

    Since you are going to be in the sun for much of the day, you will want to pack a large brimmed hat to protect your skin. Of course it is important to protect your entire body from the sun by applying sunscreen frequently but it is even more important to cover your face. No wrinkles on this newlywed! We love this floppy hat by Mellissa Odabash.

    3. A Cover-Up

    A great coverup is essential on any beach getaway but especially on your honeymoon. Since you will be living in your swimsuit, you just need a great coverup to get you from the beach to lunch and back to your room. We love a great romper like this one by Eberjey, and its super easy to pack!

    3. Pretty Sleepwear570144675_510_large

    It's your honeymoon, so you have to pack pretty sleepwear and lingerie. Leave the old pjs and sweats at home because this is your time to really play up the sex appeal. We love this pretty lacy gown in a baby blue because it isn't over the top but it's just sexy enough.

    5. Sexy Lingerie

    You just can't go on your honeymoon without packing along sexy lingerie. It's what honeymoon's were made of! Step outside of your comfort zone and pack something a little more risqué than usual. Something that will surprise your new hubby and make him super glad he married you! Try packing this lingerie set by L'Agent Provocateur.

    We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we hope you enjoy your honeymoon!


  • New Swimwear Designer Spotlight: Marysia

    Emily-Johnston-Anderson-7Meet the designer behind the new "it girl" swimwear line, Marysia.

    There is a new swimwear designer in town that we just can't get enough of. So good that we had to share. This is our first year carrying her coveted collection and it is already flying off the racks faster than we could have ever imagined.

    Maryisa Dobrazanska Reeves is the polish born designer behind this luxury swimwear brand and with her ballet and surfing backgrounds, she has created a swimwear line that is total poolside perfection. She launched her brand in 2009, focusing on executing perfectly designed silhouettes with premium fabrics. Growing up in a ballet leotard and a swimsuit during much of her younger years, gave Marysia the inspiration to create a swimsuit that was both extremely comfortable and wearable in the water and she certainly created that. When you see a Marysia suit you will know it. Her suits stand out on the racks and when you see one on the beach.

    Now, only 6 years later, her suits are seen in leading publications like Vouge, Harper's Bazaar, Shape, to name a few and her suits are also being worn by the likes of top celebrities and models. Her collection is carried in over 200 stores like Neiman Marcus, Intermix, Bloomingdale's, Shopbop, and Sylene. The brand has a strong following on social media with the help of a few blogstars donning her suits like Man Repeller, Gary Pepper Girl, Song of Style, Damsel in Dior and Always Judging.

    Her recent collection has been a total hit amongst all fashion icons but is priced so that any woman is able to wear her luxurious suits. So when you are shopping for your next beach vacation, consider packing along a Marysia suit along with you. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

    All suits featured below are for sale at Sylene (online and in our store).

  • Bras of Summer

    Summertime in DC is hot, like really really hot. And we not only have to deal with the summer heat but also the humidity that comes along with it. So when the temperatures rise, our wardrobes have to adapt with the weather so we can stay cool and dry.  Steamy temperatures call for strapless dresses, light t-shirts, muscle tanks and anything else that barely feels like you are wearing any clothing. And to go along with these styles of clothing that will stand up to the heat, it is even more essential to find bras will work with what you are wearing.

    Thankfully, we found the best bras for your summer wardrobe woes. Whether you are wearing a backless dress, low cut tank or a breezy sundress, we have got you covered.

    The T-Shirt/Tank Top Bra





    These bras look great and feel comfortable under a tank top or a t-shirt. They are light weight and also cute enough to be shown off if you are wearing a low cut v-neck or strappy tank top.


    Summer Dresses






    Wear your cool short-sleeved or sleeveless dresses all summer long paired with these feminine bras. Their slim straps and a pretty floral design work perfectly under summer dresses and give you just enough pushup and support to last from day to night.  

    Muscle Tanks and Low Cut Dresses





    With the high heat and humidity that we experience here in DC it is almost imparative that we wear clothing that doesn't touch our skin. So wearing low cut muscle tees or short swing dresses are ideal but finding undergarments to go underneath can sometimes be challenging. But these lacey bralets and detail oriented bras are so pretty you will want  to show them off under your summery clothes.

    Backless and Strapless Dresses





    Summertime was meant for backless and strapless dresses. Less is more when it comes to hot weather! So these bras will come in handy when you are wearing your brand new shoulder and back baring dresses.

    We hope you keep cool and stay dry with our summer wardrobe tips. You can purchase all items online or call our store to set up your own private fitting. We look forward to helping you!

  • 2015 Guide To Wedding Dress Trends

    Wedding season is already in full swing and if you are getting ready to tie the knot this year and need a little last minute dress inspiration, we are here to help. Wedding dress trends have certainly changed over the years and this year is no acceptation. We are seeing everything from detachable skirts, long sleeve numbers and even crop tops. Check out our 2015 Guide To Wedding Dress Trends before you make you head out with your bridesmaids on your big shopping trip. We even have paired each dress with the correct undergarments that will work best underneath.

    Detached Wedding Skirts


    This is a new trend that we are seeing that we absolutely are in love with. It is pretty much a genius concept because you are able to get 2 very different looks out of one dress. Most brides wear the skirt for the ceremony and then remove it for the reception and dancing. This style looks fabulous in photos and always leaves the guests talking.

    Undergarments to wear under a dress with a detachable skirt, really depend on what the underlying dress material is made of. If you were to wear a sheer dress like pictured above, you may want to opt for our barely there style thong and sew in bra cups in the bust.

    Long Sleeve Dresses


    Long sleeved dresses are making a comeback and in a big way. We saw tons of long sleeved frocks hit the runway at bridal fashion week and we can't get enough of the lace styles we saw. The plunging v-neck and the gorgeous lace detailing gives this dress a total wow-factor. Jaws will drop when you walk down the isle in this gorgeous silhouette.

    This dress can be tricky to find the right undergarments that will work perfectly but that is why it is essential to bring you dress into your lingerie store to make sure they fit and look perfectly. We would recommend wearing our stick on bra that gives you coverage and support, using fashion tape to make sure there are no "nip slips" and then wearing our commando thong or a pair of spanx to hold you in all night long.

    Sheer Overlays


    This dress is absolutely breathtaking and the sheer overlay really pushes this already gorgeous gown over the top. The skirt is light and airy and the top has the perfect amount of sexy and sweet going on. Perfect for an outdoor garden wedding in the summer.

    We love a flowing skirt like this because you can actually wear undergarments underneath! We recommend getting fitted for a bustier top, to help enhance your small waistline and also give your breasts and extra lift.

    Crop Tops


    Crop top gowns were something we never thought we would see walking down the isle but to our surprise they have been popping up everywhere. And if you have a tight and whittled waist, we say go for it but make sure that you pick a classy skirt to accompany your tiny top.  We love the way this full ball gown skirt is paired with a delicate lace, long sleeved crop top. It is the perfect mix of edge and elegance.

    Finding a bra that will work under this top will be tricky but not impossible. Look for a nude strapless bra or even the nu-bra would work well under a sheer top like this. And since the skirt is so full, you are free to wear whatever you like underneath but we suggest these.

    Off The Shoulder Necklines


    If you are going for a classic and elegant bridal look, this is the dress for you. It super chic and has even has a touch of old hollywood glamor to it. This neckline is pure perfection.

    We highly recommend a corset for this dress, it will suck in your waist and push your breasts up to create the perfect amount of lust worthy cleavage. Keep the underwear simple and smooth under this dress, you don't want any panty lines showing through the sheer fabric.

    Floral Bridesmaid Dresses


    We love how much bridesmaid trends have changed over the past few years. We are seeing many brides choosing gorgeous floral prints or even mixing different floral patterns to create a look that is cohesive but not so matchy-matchy. So many brides are letting each bridesmaid find a look or cut that suits them best and we think that bridesmaids are absolutely thrilled about this. Because nothing is worse than having to purchase an expensive dress that you look awful in and will never wear again.

    Depending on the cut of the floral gown you choose, you will have to find undergarments that will compliment what you will be wearing. It is best to bring your dress into your local shop to try on a few selections of bras and undies, to make sure you find the perfect match.


    Blush Bridesmaid Dresses


    Blush is a color we have seen popping up a lot over the past two years. It is light, looks good on most skin tones and looks absolutely stunning in photos. We are obsessed with the necklines on these bridesmaid dresses above, this bride must have some serious style!

    A strapless bra will work best with a neckline like this, any other type of bra will peek through and you do not want that. If you are concerned about your tummy not being as flat as you would like, throw on some shapewear and call it a day!

    For all of your bridal party fitting needs, make an appointment at Sylene and we will help you find the perfect underpinnings for your special day!

  • 2015 Summer Beach Essentials

    Beach rentals, sandy toes, and cocktails with those pink little umbrellas await you. But before you can hit the beach you will need to put together a well packed bag of items that will get you from the beach to fancy dinners in town.  We have put together a guide to help you pack light and smart - so much so that you may even have room to bring a few souvenirs home as well.  Follow our guide to 2015 Summer Beach Essentials and the only care you will have is where to position your chair on the beach.

    White Linen Shirt


    A lightweight cotton shirt in a neutral color is essential for summer travel. Light-weight linen is the perfect packing material and will go with almost anything. We love this one by Luna Luz because it can be worn belted as a dress or you can wear it over your bikini to the beach. Super versatile!



    Tunics are essential for summertime travel because they are long enough to be worn as a dress, as a coverup and also short enough to wear over leggings or pants when it gets cooler. We love this one by Nanette Lepore Swim because of its super cute pockets and embroidery around the neck.


    This light and gauzy tunic is dressy enough to be worn to dinner with wedges or can be worn over your suit when you head to claim your spot at the beach. It is also a bonus that the fabric is  super light weight, so you know it won't take up much room in your suitcase.



    How cute is Trina Turk's Fiji feathers print bikini? We love this suit because it is both flirty and sporty, which is perfect when you are looking to save space packing. It will hold up to swimming and surfing but also will make heads turn when you are lounging by the pool.


    One pieces are back in a big way this summer and we think it is essential to pack at least one of them when traveling. We love this one by Karla Coletto because the fringe detail is eye catching and the construction of the suit holds you in, in all of the right places. Talk about a figure flattering suit!



    Pack a romper like this one and we promise you will find yourself wearing it multiple times. Great for lounging, shopping, trips to the beach and even for a night out. Just accessorize it differently and you have an entirely different look!


    This little romper by Eberjey is cute as a button! Although it may not be as versatile as some of the other options, it does come in handy as something to throw on for walks to the beach, the pool or to lunch in the middle of the day.



    It is imperative that you protect your skin with a hat this summer. You still need to load on the sunscreen but throw on a cute hat and you will protect your face from the harmful UV rays that you will be basking in. We love this cowboy hat from Mellissa Odabash because it gives off a bit of a western flare, which is super hot right now. Throw it in your carry on and you are good to go!



    Everyone knows that sandals are essential for summertime but sometimes finding a sandal that is both comfy and cute is hard to come by. We love the flops by Ipanema because they are excellent at making footwear for both of these categories!

  • Best Swimsuit For Your Body Type

    Alright ladies, swimsuit season is here - whether we like it or not. We know swimsuit shopping can be uncomfortable for anyone, no matter what your body looks like. We all have our insecurities and have areas that we want to hide more than others. But wouldn't it feel great if you were able to shop this swimsuit season and find a suit that made you look and feel amazing? That is why we have selected suits for each body type, so when you go shopping you will know exactly what will suit you best (pun intended). Arm yourself with these tricks, and you'll be able to stroll poolside with confidence.

    Small Chest









    If you are smaller on top than you would like, we recommend selecting a suit with ruffles, bold prints and splashes of color.  The best thing you can do to create the illusion of volume is to distract from what is there currently. Simple, solid suits draw attention straight to the area but bold prints keep eyes moving. Deep V-neck suits are also great for helping create killer cleavage and look super chic on women with small breasts.

    Large Chest







    If you have a large bust, look for a bathing suit with plenty of support. Choosing a suit with wide straps, an underwire and boning will help lift your chest. Also look out for details like high armpits and necklines or halter straps with wide bands to help support the girls. Steer clear of skimpy styles that lack structure.

    Athletic Figure







    The struggle with an athletic frame is the lack of curves, so it is important to find suits that will help create the illusion of killer curves.  This is easily done with added padding, suits with gathering and halter top styles. Tankinis are great to show a sliver of skin to break up a straight frame and also sweet-heart necklines and string bikinis also are perfect for athletic type bodies.  Try to avoid bandeau tops and boy-shorts, these styles will make your shape look more boyish than curvy.

    Love Handles and Large Middle











    We weren't all blessed with 6-pack abs and we may not all feel confident in a bikini. Love handles are something that most of us struggle with but fighting the bulge is much easier than you may thing. There are so many suits now that combat that extra tummy flab and will make you look tight and toned in no time. We love the Miracle suit for people that are looking to disguise their middle. These suits hold you in and give the illusion of whittled waist. The crisscrossing of gathered fabric camouflage tummy issues as well. If you are looking to try a bikini, go for a high-waisted style to prevent muffin top. Plus, high-waisted bottoms are super chic right now!

    Burn Easily





    If you have extremely fair skin and have to limit your sun exposure we have a great new option for you!  If you want to catch some rays but you don’t want to look like lobster after a day at the beach then a rash-guard suit is for you. There are so many suits out that have rash guard options that are super cute and will help protect you from that nasty burn. The long-sleeved tops aren’t just for serious surfers anymore, they come in a variety of stylish cuts and styles and we think that this will be a trend that we will continue to see.

    Now that you know which suit will suit you best, its time to get shopping. Shop these looks above or come into our store and we will you find the perfect suit for your shape. We hope to see you soon!

  • Ask The Bra Lady- Spring Edition

    Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 4.23.38 PM

    Q. I am a 38DD and have a problem finding a bra with straps that are narrowly set to wear with sleeveless tops and dresses. The straps on all my bras are set too wide apart and I hate the look of bra straps that show. I could always wear a strapless bra, but it is not comfortable for all day. A t-back bra would solve this issue, but I haven’t found a good one made in my size. Does anyone make a great bra in my size that will solve this issue?

    Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 4.23.07 PM

    A. Le Mystere has just come out with the Sophia Lace T-back bra. This bra is available in sizes 32 to 40, B through G cup. With cups made of smooth microfiber and a pretty lace back, this disappears under your clothing. With the use of a j hook, its straps can be converted to racerback so your straps will never show. This bra is a winner at $65.

    -Jenn F.

    Q. I have always been thin and not at all curvy. However, every so often I would like to sport some curves. I have mastered my top but would really like to enhance my rear without gaining 20 pounds, performing extreme workouts or opting for cosmetic surgery. Is there a padded bottom that you recommend?


    A. Padded panties are a hot item right now made popular by our celebrity culture. We like these panties made by Fashion Forms. This natural looking seamless padded panty is pre-shaped with contour foam to resemble a curvaceous bottom and will give you the perky, lifted, and round butt you desire. Seamless Buty Panty S-XL $28
