Everyone has the right to feel sexy and powerful, no matter their gender identity or expression. And while females and femme-identifying people have the ability to find lingerie that fit their bodies with ease, trans and non-binary folks have a more difficult time finding the perfect negligee. Which is why stores like Bluestockings Boutique are so vital as we continue to shape the narrative around fashion and gender expression.

Bluestockings Boutique was founded by Jeanna Kadlec when she realized there was no lingerie boutique that catered to the LGBTQIA+ community.

Not only does the brand sell pieces like packing boxers, and feature fitting notes in clothing descriptions for transfeminine customers, but Bluestockings is also ethical and even offers discounts to students and sex workers.

Jeanna, who identifies as queer, teamed up with Sonny Oram of Qwear, a platform that showcases LGBTQIA+ modes of expression, to celebrate the beauty in trans and non-conforming bodies for a photoshoot that’s giving us life. With every model identifying somewhere on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, and half being trans and non-binary, this is what the future of fashion and lingerie should look like. Jeanna talked to HelloGiggles about the inspiration behind this shoot, saying,

Although Jeanna doesn’t believe that any brand can truly be feminist (hello, capitalism), her own goal with Bluestockings is to make it as intersectional as possible.

The best part about this shoot is that every piece is available to buy on Bluestockings Boutique.
