Dear Readers, 

Can you believe Hourglassy has been publishing since 2008? Between all of our contributors, we’ve written over 2,000 posts in that time! I (Leah) have been writing here since 2011, adding up to nearly 300 posts within that total. 

Now, after all these years under Darlene’s tutelage, she and I have decided to take Hourglassy in a slightly new direction. Going forward, Darlene is going to take a little step back to focus more on her career and family, and I’ll become the primary point of contact and lead writer. 

You’ll still see the same in-depth, honest content we’ve always provided, including posts from our stable of writers, but you may see Darlene’s name on fewer posts than in the past. As well, behind the scenes, I’ll be more of the “face” of Hourglassy at trade shows and other professional events. 

We’re always on the lookout for new writing talent to add to our roster and new full-bust brands to share with our audience, so if you want to send any pitches or suggestions our way, please email 

We’re so grateful to all our readers who’ve stuck by us through the years. Every comment, social media like, and shared link has meant so much, and we’re excited to continue bringing you trustworthy reviews and musings about full-bust fashion and lifestyle for many years to come.
