Who hasn't witnessed bridal shower gifts of tacky push-up bras and raunchy panties? I couldn't tell you why this "tradition" endures. But I can suggest something prettier to give and get as part of a wedding trousseau: Zinke Intimates, a made-in-NYC lingerie collection designed by sisters Jessie Zinke and Arin Robinson.
To spice up every day, I like the unexpected color combos in the Souvenir collection and all of the sisters' pin-up retro rompers, bralets, and romantic baby-doll tops. But for your big day, there are incredibly special pieces like a lace jumper, a slinky silk robe, and a matching pale-blue satin set.
