It’s Istanbul/It’s Constantinople

Anyone care to fill me in on the scoop with Woman Within and Lane Bryant Catalog? I clicked on the Woman Within link a few weeks back, to find things labeled “Lane Bryant catalog.” I thought, absently, hmm, they must still be in transition on the rebranding – LBC was around for years, it probably will take awhile.

Then, a Lane Bryant Catalog lands in my mail. Most of the things from Woman Within that were kind of cute, especially a pajama set I had my eye on are just gone. And now, when I run a search I get two separate websites -Lane Bryant Catalog, which also has links to Old Pueblo Traders among others, and Woman Within, which seems to have teamed up with Jessica London and Roaman’s.



So are Woman Within and LBC separate businesses or not? I’ve got to say, the gradual disappearance of stiff polyester pantsuits from Woman Within was a relief and I’m sad to see their return in LBC.
