    NYFW Spring Swimwear Trends

    It is hard to believe will be transitioning into Spring soon, as we are getting pounded with snow. For many of us it is hard to plan what we are going to wear when we wake up that day, let alone think of what is to come for the next season.  But rest assured, there are some great things to come for Spring and we just had to share them with you! One of the Sylene team members had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week last September and she reported back to us on her favorite swimwear trends for spring and what we can expect to see in the near future.

    There were many stand-out trends for Spring that walked down the runways inside Lincoln Center including: lace, ruffles, menswear pieces, mesh, and western inspired looks.  Swimwear made an appearance in many of the runway shows and we were excited at what we saw.  Zimmerman showed dressed up swimwear that almost looked like it could double as evening wear!  They showed high waisted bottoms with ruffles that were paired with bra tops with lace overlay.  They also showed sheer white lace cover-ups that almost had a western chic feel to them.  It is safe to say that we should expect to see lace and ruffles make an appearance in swimwear styles for next year.

    We also caught a few swimwear inspired styles at the Custo Barcelona show where they featured simple bikinis under beautiful mesh open-weave cover-ups with intricate geometric designs.  Seeing multiple mesh looks made us think that this is also a trend that we could be seeing for resort wear for next spring/summer.  They also showed bold printed one pieces with cut-outs and high waisted two-piece styles that had capes!  Although we are not sure how that would translate at the pool or beach, it was interesting to see on the runway.

    At Mara Hoffman we saw beautiful pastel colored suits with high waisted bottoms and some with cut-outs. We also saw beach and lounge wear in bold prints that had a laid back and relaxed feel to them.  Many models that walked down the runway wore baseball caps that seemed to be 90's inspired with a longer than usual brims.  It seems that many designers are beginning to catch on to how important protecting our skin really is and our "hat's off" (literally) to Mara for making it fashionable!

    Spring may seem far away with all of the snow we have been getting but we are pretty excited for the new trends that we saw and our spring styles have already started arriving at Sylene. Come in and take a look at our new Spring styles and we have no doubt you will be on trend for your next beach vacation!

  • The Great Escape

    If you are living on the east coast currently, then you know that the weather has been less than ideal, down right unbearable. We have just been hit with snow and there are rumors that another storm is headed our way. Are you kidding? Where is spring when you need it? Instead of sticking around and braving the frigid temps we are thinking it is about time to plan an escape to somewhere warmer. We have rounded up our favorite new items that we will be packing along with us on our great escape.

  • Fifty Shades Of Grey + Valentine's Day

    IMG_1998

    You might actually be living under a rock if you haven't heard of the latest steamy romance novel-turned film, 50 Shades of Grey. The novel was first published in 2011 and has absolutely swept the nation, selling 60 million copies and spawning two sequels, titled Fifty-Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. So it comes at no surprise that most women are a little giddy for the movie to be released on February 13th and we are sure the release date had nothing to do with Valentine's Day at all..

    Along with the the other 200 million women out there who are dying to see this movie, we can absolutely not wait either. Being in the lingerie business ourselves, we are most interested to see what lead character, Anastasia Steele, will be wearing. Seeing as she plays the role of girlfriend to handsome billionaire, Christian Grey, we can only assume her lingerie will be as steamy as the love scenes.

    So if you plan to see 50 Shades of Grey with your valentine, then we suggest you pick out something special for the post show. Because if the movie is anything like the books, well then you better be prepared for things to heat up once you get back home. Check out our top picks for Valentine's Day success below.

  • Ask The Bra Lady: Jan/Feb Edition

    Love our Ask The Bra Lady section of our newsletter? Well if so, you will be happy to hear that we are now publishing these questions on our blog as well! And if you don't receive our newsletter, let us know so we can change but in the mean time you can find all of her helpful information right here on our blog.

    Q. I’d like to treat myself to a pretty bra and panty set but I wear a large cup size. Is it my imagination or is it that all the pretty, sexy bras are for smaller busted girls? All the bras I see in my size look like harnesses! I would love to find something that is not full coverage. Can you suggest something for an F or G cup girl?

    Alissa N.

    A. We carry many beautiful bras that fit your requirements. And Diamond from Prima Donna’s luxury collection sounds like just what you are looking for. This bra is a deep plunge style with invisible support. Both the bra and panty are crafted from  beautiful corsetry lace, satin ribbon and embellished with ultra-fine details. It is stylish, sensual, and sophisticated. You can’t help but to feel indulged in this set.

    PrimaDonna_Diamond_Black_04_low_resBra 32-44 C-H cups $155, Panty S-XXL $72.

    Q. I have a winter vacation planned to Antigua. I have always prided myself on a nice waistline but something has happened and my middle seems to have become thicker. What type of suit would you suggest for me?

    Kathy M.

    A. There are a number of swimsuit styles that would work for you. We always say you need to enhance the positive while detracting from the negative. A bandeau suit is a good choice as most of us have great shoulders and one’s eyes tend to go upwards naturally. This one from Karla Colletto called “Flounce” camouflages the middle with its cascading ruffle that optically reduces your waistline. With a hidden underwire, you get the bonus of added bust support.

    KarlaColletto_C2015_277000Available in black with moss, red or cobalt flounce in sizes 8-16 $276.

    We want to hear from YOU! Send your questions our way and we would be happy to answer them in our next issue of Ask The Bra Lady and here on our Ask The Bra Lady Blog.

  • New Year, New Resolutions

    happy_new_year_2_1920As we approach the new year ahead, we look back at the past 365 days and reflect on the good and the bad, what we achieved and what we strive to in the new year. There are many things that we were beyond grateful for in 2014; our loyal customers, family, friends, pets, and our health to name a few. And even though 2014 was a wonderful year, we only hope that the year upon us will be even better. We have laid out or resolutions and are ready to tackle them in 2015! We want to hear what your resolutions are! Share them in the comments below!

    Stay Fit and Committed to Health: Our health is so important to us and as we age it is even more important to stay active and to watch what we eat. This year we are looking to keep consistent and to add something new into our workout routine, to keep things fresh and new!

    Make Time For Me: Many times we work so hard focusing on our business and others around us that we forget to think about ourselves. This year we are going to take a little more “me” time and maybe even indulge in a spa appointment every now and then!

    Spend Quality Time With Friends and Family: This one is huge for us. Family is extremely important to us and we are committed to spending more quality time together in 2015. Whether it is a family trip somewhere or just chatting over coffee, this is something that we will be focusing on in the new year.

    Give Back: We are very blessed to have a roof over our heads, own a successful business and to have a happy and healthy family but many people are not as fortunate. It is important to us to give back to our community and to help others in need and in 2015 we look to do more of this kind of work. We do a lot of giving back through the store, so if you are interested in joining us please comment below so we can inform you when we do so.

    Wishing you a happy and healthy 2015!

  • The New Mom Gift Guide

    Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 3.38.57 PM

    1. Rock A Bye Baby Eye Mask $26   2. Lafco Mini Candle Set  $85  3. Prince Bib $15   4. Trina Turk Mesh Crop Leggings  $84  5. Ugg Slippers $100   6. Mommy Robe $180

    Thanksgiving has come and gone and Hanukkah and Christmas will be knocking on our doors before we know it! If you haven't already started your holiday shopping, you better get to it! We will be sharing a holiday gift guide with you each week until Christmas and first up we have a guide for all those new mommies out there that deserve some pampering.

    1. Rock-A-Bye-Baby Sleep Mask- As we all know a new mom doesn't always get the amount of shut eye she needs or deserves, so when she is able to catch a few z’s let her do it in style and in peace.
    2. Lafco Candle Set- Give her the gift of a spa like atmosphere. Aromatherapy can transport her to a zen like place and after a stressful day with a squealing little one, all she will want is to light a nice candle, draw a hot bubble bath and pour a glass of red wine. Include the bubble bath and red wine for extra brownie points!
    3. Prince Bib- A new mom will always appreciate new bibs around the house and how cute is this one for the little prince in her life!?
    4. Work-Out Pants- Everyone needs a little “me” time and new moms are no exception to this! Give her a cute pair of workout pants, a pass to her favorite yoga or barre class and offer to watch the little one while she gets her workout on. We promise she will thank you for this gift!
    5. Ugg Slippers- These cozy slippers are perfect for the new mom that is constantly cleaning up or chasing after her precious little one. They are the only shoe you need when inside your home!
    6. Luxe Mommy Robe- This gift would go nicely with the candle set mentioned earlier. After the nice long bubble bath, give her the gift of a cuddly robe to snuggle up in during her relaxing at home spa night.

    We promise these gift ideas will be a huge hit with the new mommy in your life. Be sure to check back with us over the next few weeks as we roll out other unique gift guides for the ladies in your life that mean the most! Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!

  • Giving Thanks

    Untitled

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner and while we prep our homes and tables for this special day we are reminded why we cherish this holiday so much.  We of course love Thanksgiving for the obvious reason most people do: the copious amount of pumpkin pie, turkey and of course football but there is really so much more to this holiday then just these mainstays.

    Many of us get so carried away with the cooking and decorating that we have forgotten what this holiday is really all about. Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for everything we have in out  lives and a time to share kindness, thankfulness and appreciation with those we care about most. This year we are making a point to pay homage to the true meaning of Thanksgiving and to give thanks to those in our lives that we love, cherish, and who have helped us become who we are today.

    Please read below as we share what we are thankful for this year:

    I am thankful for all the friends we have made over the years while helping all these wonderful women look and feel their best. I love sharing in their triumphs and their trying times and appreciate being able to be a part of their lives. -Cyla

    We thank you so much for your business, your support and for friendship over the years. We truly would not be here without the support of each and every one of you.  This year we encourage you to share what you are thankful for with your family and friends as you gather around the table for dinner.  And make sure not to get caught up in the stress of the day, to take a step back, look around and give thanks for the special moments you are able to share with your family and friends.

    Many Thanks,

  • The Boudoir Shoot: The Gift Every Man Will Love

    Have you ever been totally stumped when trying to find your partner the perfect gift around the holidays? We know we have! Holidays, anniversaries and birthdays happen annually and still whenever one comes upon us we still have absolutely no idea what to buy! This year we thought we would start the hunt early and when we started browsing for unique gift ideas, it wasn't long before we realized that maybe our husbands didn't want another beer mug set or striped golf shirt but rather something a bit more personal and something that truly is from YOU.

    tumblr_ltkfg9ZPsq1qjdnyzo1_500

    It was then that we came across the Boudoir Shoot.  Boudoir photography has been around forever but it wasn't until recently that it really began gaining mainstream popularity. Boudoir shoots are usually composed of a model wearing little to no clothing  posed in flattering positions to show the model's best attributes.  Don't get us wrong, these pictures are meant to be sexy but we want to assure you that they are usually far from X-rated.  And seeing as you have full control over what you wear and how you pose, you really can make sure that your personality shines through. The main focus of a boudoir photographer is to capture you in the most flattering way by guiding you through the poses that compliment your body type best.  We have seen many new brides planning Boudoir shoots for their husbands as wedding gifts but have also found that many women are doing them for anniversaries, birthdays or just because!  Whether you are a newly-wed or have been married for 20 + years this is something that you and your partner will look back on and cherish.

    So you have the perfect gift idea, now it's time to make it happen.  Start by searching for a local photographer online that specializes in Boudoir Photography and produces images that you love, recommendations from friends are even better.  It is super important that you feel 100% comfortable with your photographer, so don't be afraid to be picky when making your selection. If you are still nervous, it doesn't hurt to bring a friend along to help calm your nerves.

    Next up is our favorite part, picking out the lingerie! This is a time to get creative with your lingerie and don't be afraid to try something that you haven't before. All that really matters is that you feel beautiful in it.  We have so many pretty and sexy options to choose from in our store, there really is something for everyone and every body type. We are experts in this category, so come in to our store and let us do all the work. We promise to help you find something that is perfect for your body that you will feel absolutely amazing in.
