According to the song from Annie, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. But I say, you’re never fully dressed until you’ve got something slinky and sexy on underneath. We recommend a lacy slip, bustier or bra-lette for letting your sensual side show (or not show, as it were). Check out our picks above!

Assuming Kim Kardashian is as high-maintenance about her loungewear as she is with the ensembles she dons in public, I imagine the lingerie shown in this photoshoot for the French Fantice is pretty close to what Kim wears in the bedroom she shares with Kanye West.

Timed to coincide with tonight’s telecast of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, some activist types launched “PINK loves CONSENT,” a Victoria’s Secret parody peddling anti-rape panties. ”To win back customers it has alienated with its ‘rape culture’ styles,” an activist who insisted she worked for Victoria’s Secret told Jezebel, the brand would replace apparently rape-friendly slogans like “SURE THING” with rape-thwarting slogans like “ASK FIRST.” “When it comes to sex, words like ‘no’ are for setting boundaries, NOT flirting.”
Within 24 hours of its launch, Jezebel debunked the campaign. Female bloggers took to Tumblr, warning one another that this anti-rape lingerie line was not real, so do not fall for it. Read more…
I hate wearing bras. Ugh. My full C cup ta-tas require the utmost support. Whenever I start complaining about how girls have to wear uncomfortable underwear I just remember my foremothers who had to wear all that full-bodied corset BS that I am pretty sure was damn close to torture. In order to quell my undergarment woes I decided to do a bit of research into how women’s underwear has evolved throughout the past century. From corsets to the Wonder Bra, it’ll never be any surprise to me that when feminist decided to rebel against gender norms they burned their bras. Read more…
The Victoria’s Secret fashion show was last night, and it was bonkers. In between performances by Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Justin Bieber (whose presence seemed comically inappropriate), models like Miranda Kerr, Candace Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo strutted their stuff on the runway. Every year, the Victoria’s Secret designers go out of their way to create totally outlandish and wild “sexy” costumes, and this latest runway show was no exception. Check out some of our favorite ridiculous looks (and a totally offensive “Native American” headdress), above!
A few weeks ago, I bought a gorgeous dress to wear to a wedding, but had a minor panic attack when I realized that, because I couldn’t wear a bra with it, I’d be accessorizing with major nip action. Not exactly appropriate for the occasion, you know? I can’t stand a strapless bra; every one I’ve ever tried has either been horribly uncomfortable or refused to stay up properly. So I sucked it up and decided to conquer my fear of stick-on bras. A shop girl recommended the seamless NuBra, assuring me it was comfortable and would never be detected under my slinky dress. And she was right! The NuBra stayed on super securely all night and made my boobs look better than they would have had I gone bra-less. Sure, it looks a little silly and would have required some explanation had I gotten lucky that night (I didn’t), but whatever. Oh, and best of all, it’s reusable. Just keep it in its handy storage container so the sticky side doesn’t dry out and carefully hand wash when necessary. The NuBra comes in cup sizes A-D and a few different shades of “nude” to match all skin tones. Totally tit-tastic! [$58, Macy's]
Sometimes brands are so dopey that you almost feel bad for them for not realizing they were being racist. (Almost.) First Paul Frank were ding-dongs with their Native American tee-pees-and-tomahawks party on Fashion’s Night Out. And now Victoria’s Secret is selling an outfit called “Sexy Little Geisha” featuring an “Oriental” patterned fan and hair sticks with tassles to put in your hair. Keep reading »
Yesterday morning, I woke up and before getting out of bed, I checked my email on my iPhone and opened up one of the 10 million sale alerts I get from various brands. This one was for Aerie, a sub-brand of American Eagle Outfitters that I love for their affordable bras and undies. The deal was for one of their style of bras, but I was far more interested in the panties the model was wearing, because they were sheer enough in the crotch to reveal a whole lot of vagina. Whoa, visible vagina in my inbox, I thought. Or there should have been. I pinched and zoomed in. What the hell has happened to her vag? Keep reading »
I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly become my new favorite underwear: they’re sexy, comfy, and with just the right amount of stretch, they’re totally flattering. And yeah, did I mention they’re $5 a pop? I’m about to grab a few more colors, and I encourage you to join me! [$5, Target]
