Do you feel like sleeping in this Fall season? You can hibernate but still, do it in style. It just so happens that a new luxury sleepwear and loungewear brand called Sophia Graydon has launched for your stylish fall-winter hibernation. Sophia Graydon is the creation of Monica Nassif, who started her career at Target, and founded Caldrea Co., a company specializing in premium, earth-friendly household cleaners.
About her new venture to luxury sleepwear, Nassif said:
“What attracted me to this category is it lacked glamour and sophistication…There’s what I call granny flannel wear, pin-up wear and yogawear…I thought why can’t you have something beautiful, and elegant, something to slip into when you come home from work?”
She came up with “Sophia Graydon” after looking at her family album.
“After naming former businesses after two daughters and my mother, I went through my husband’s family album and found two names on the family tree, siblings, and I thought the names were beautiful.”
Nassif is not kidding about the ‘luxury’ title for her line, as she features deep hems, petite French seams, menswear-inspired cuffs and tuxedo striping. She uses Swiss cotton, Grand Marais Scottish cashmere, French silk and Odessa French lace for the collection. Here are some peeks:
Priced between $175 to $3,950, Sophia Graydon is available from sizes XS to XL. For more on Sophia Graydon, visit www.sophiagraydon.com.

Let’s build onto our collection of Agent Provocateur lingerie for summer, shall we? This pair of silk panties come with cool black side ties that aren’t just sexy, but very useful during seduction time. Like all A.P. pieces, all details featured are extremely high quality and perfectly constructed. Unusual logo detailing along the rump that’s purely sexy. Champagne color in one size.
Silk satin hipster briefs might be a luxury, but I have a feeling that you earned it. This particular pair was gleaned from the wedding collection without a second glance, as brides shouldn’t have all the fun! Big tie-side bows are just begging to be, well, untied, and we all know that when you put a pair of these stylish briefs on, they probably won’t remain on for long. Very alluring and silky soft.
This pair of panties is an affordable little gift to yourself when you need something extra and you’re not quite sure what. Sweet pink with semi-sheer qualities matches beautifully with all your lace balconette bras, mini camis, and totally sexy slips. Available in sizes S and M from Harrod’s luxury lingerie department. I’d consider buying more than just one pair!
(Agent Provocateur Black Slip Lingerie, $300; Hanky Panky Mesh Babydoll with G-String, $75.00)
Black and sexy lingerie doesn’t need to be super-expensive, as you can see here. While we adore Agent Provocateur’s body-skimming strappy slip, we really want to try on this version from ShopBop that’s priced at $75. A semi-sheer gauze gives just a peek away– and that peek is tantalizing framed with a black ribbon bow detail and lace just like on the Agent Provocateur version. You also get a matching G-string, but you can try a pair of contrasting ruffled rumba shorts as well.
The Sparkle and Fade Polexia One Piece has an interestingly sexy vibe to it. This onesie piece in peep-show lace and soft satiny fabric just has this cool feel to it that makes you want to lounge around in it all day with your slim leather belt accessory and cowboy boots, too. Lots of detail at the bust and double straps add just the bit of interest you’re looking for.
Looking for a pair of panties that have the comfort of boxers but don’t look like them? This pair of Free People Floral Burnout Ruffle Boxers fits your wish and is just divine in fun pink and purple. You can also get yours in light green if you prefer, or follow my lead and get both! Try them with a saucy matching tank from Free People if you like to wear sets. Poly/cotton blend and slight ruffles at leg openings.

Single or hitched, your right to luxury lingerie should never be ignored. It’s a good thing Damaris has a revamped line of 100% silk and silk satin-trimmed panties and bras in a stunning variety of colors, because we’re going to need that kind of assortment once we start shopping. Although Damaris’ pieces can range upwards of $6,000.00 and beyond, the Mimi Holliday line not only becomes more accessible, but easier to stock up on in every color. Silk chiffon, satin, and satin stretch are trimmed with polyester lace. Enjoy, my lovelies.

The Lake & Stars Social Hour Garter offers a modern-meets-old-fashioned feminine twist for your little lingerie drawer. Interesting satin gathered waistband has great texture in contrast to your usual lace garters, and unusually large floppy bows at the legs are ultra-fem and glam. Hook-and-eye closure at back and contrast loop and sequin details.
Lingerie certainly doesn’t have to be satin to be sexy. Brazilian loungewear line Undrest proves that with their flirty and feminine pieces made of 100% Supima cotton. One piece that we adore from the line is the Undrest Marissa Boy Short. With the frills around the edges and the lace applique right in the center, you’ll feel sexy and sweet all at the same time! The shorts also match with equally cute matching camisoles and bralettes.
