It’s easy to get into an underwear rut, especially since cotton briefs are so comfortable. But every woman needs pretty lingerie in her life for the moments when she wants to feel special and throw practicality to the wind. Here’s the lingerie we’d like to wear around the boudoir.
If you’ve worn a strapless bra at least once in your life, then you’re familiar with the “jug tug,” the act of constantly repositioning your breasts in a strapless bra. This spring and summer, though, you’ll be able to keep your breasts, bra, and hands where they belong with Spanx’s Bra-Cha-Cha Strapless Bra. As the name suggests, you can go dancing in this bra or wear it during your daily activities because the Bra-Cha-Cha has a one-inch thick No-Slip Strip that adheres to the back so the front stays up. Spanx also revolutionized the shape of the cups by turning them upside down, creating a secure fit. And yes, this strapless bra is available in sizes up to a 38D!
New research has shown that women would prefer their bodies be referred to as great works of art rather than pieces of fruit. They needed to do a study to figure that out? Really? Anyhow, Triumph, an Australian lingerie line, is embracing this revelation by re-branding our body types. Instead of shopping for under-things for your “pear shape” or “apple bottom,” you can look for your “type” according to great works of art. As in, “I wear a 34 Botticelli” or “Do you carry Matisse girdles?” or “I hope those undies come in Picasso because my butt has been looking very cubist lately.” [The Hairpin

Sometimes a gal wakes up and realizes she has a specialty in life. In the journalism world, they call that a “beat.” And apparently, weird panties are my beat. Last week, I told you about panties with built-in liners which ensure your period — even when menstrual blood is leaking in your drawers — is a sexy time. Today, I am all about underwear which allow you to test out a new pubic hair design before having it ripped out from the root by your trusted waxer. Trim & Proper panties are basic nude cotton panties with little, suggestive pubic hair designs on the front. Also, according to the About Us page, these panties “cover mishaps, misshapes and outright neglect,” which I guess is why they’re nude-colored? So that from far away you look naked and well-groomed? But to whom? Peeping Toms? I am confused. But at least these are cheaper than the panties that soak up your period leakage. [$16, Trim & Proper] Keep reading »
So, yesterday, I ruined what I estimate to be my 57th pair of panties and stained a perfectly good pair of pajama bottoms when my tampon had a major leak. It was not a very sexy moment. But it could have been, if I had only been wearing a pair of Sexy Period panties! These very real, very purchasable undergarments are sold with three absorbent, leak-resistant layers built in, that way, if your ‘pon leaks, the spill will be soaked up by the crotch fabric. No ruined clothing! No public embarrassment! Just a super sexy bloody mess in your pants that’s your little secret. Keep reading »
Clap on! Clap off! Clap on, clap off … your girl’s bra. Imagine I was singing that. The Clap-Off Bra is a brilliant gift idea for lazy men who don’t want to put in all that extra work to undo a bra. You can make one for the special lady in your life this Valentine’s Day
by following these ridiculously complicated instructions
. Oh, and you may want to consider ditching that giant red bow. Most women prefer for their boobs not to look like a Christmas gift. (FYI, the video is sort of NSFW.) [Instructables
