Two of my favorite things in this whole world are peaches and butts. Put those two together, and you have the greatest lovechild of all time, not including Blue Ivy Carter. So what is a peach butt, you ask? Keep reading »
Three forward-thinking women have put their heads together to create the ultimate in lingerie — pretty, stain-resistant underwear meant to help you survive your period without ruined clothes and embarrassing moments. Why didn’t anyone come up with this sooner!?
The panties are called THINX, and they’re the brain child of twin sisters Radha and Miki Agrawal and their friend Antonia Dunbar. After facing one too many public period disasters, the ladies got fed up with the cultural stigma surrounding menstruation — and how that stigma has prevented innovation in the products we use to manage our time of the month. THINX undies are made with “four-layer technology” to prevent leakage, but are still thin enough to feel something like real underwear. They’re offered as hiphuggers, thongs, and even a fancy lacy variety. Keep reading »
You know, right up against my vag. (There’s also a crotchless version!) [$45, Etsy via Nerve]
I’ve always considered myself a very open, sexually confident person, but on the morning of my first-ever boudoir photo shoot, I was anything but. At 8 a.m., I woke up feeling exhausted and bloated (a combination of the previous night’s salt intake and a present from the PMS fairy), and had an hour-and-a-half to pull off my sexiest hair and makeup. While most boudoir photographers suggest you have your hair and makeup done professionally, I knew that these services would run me about $300, so I opted to do it all myself to save some money. Besides, this way, I knew I wouldn’t end up looking like a clown at the hands of some eyeshadow-happy twenty-year-old. As soon as I looked in the mirror, I was greeted by a giant pimple on my forehead (also gifted from the PMS fairy) and immediately regretted my decision to opt out of having my makeup done. As I got ready, I kept reminding myself that Photoshop was invented for a reason. So was makeup. Besides, who cares about a pimple when you’re about to get naked for a stranger? I had bigger fish to fry. I opted to give myself a sultry smoky eye with Topshop’s Smokey Eye Palette in Tuxedo (stay tuned for a Beauty Test Drive!) and keep my lips subtle with Bite Beauty’s BB For Lips in Suede, both of which would compliment the three different looks I would wear during my shoot. (And to be clear, I opted to bring three different lingerie options. Nudity wasn’t happenin’, folks.) Keep reading »
After meeting internationally-known, award-winning boudoir photographer Angelica Roberts at this year’s Lingerie Fashion Week, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick her brain about her job and learn more about what’s involved in a boudoir shoot. What if I’m bloated from my period? Can you make me look slimmer? How do I prepare for a shoot? Angelica, whose work has been featured in “Vogue,” was happy to answer all of our burning questions about boudoir sessions— just in time for me to DO ONE! I’m super excited to work with Angelica, and I’ll obviously be writing about (and maybe if you’re lucky, sharing pictures from) my first boudoir experience on The Frisky, but until then, check out what she had to say to see if a boudoir shoot is for you. (Psst … it is!) Keep reading »
Out of all the gorgeous gowns I saw on the red carpet and on stage at last night’s ACM Awards, the Kristian Aadnevik corset dress Shakira wore to perform “Medicine” with Blake Shelton was my absolute favorite. My reaction to it was a combination of “Oh my God she looks amazing,” and “Oh my God I want to be wearing that right now!” And while most of us don’t have that many opportunities to wear a skimpy corset dress in real life, we can definitely make some opportunities to wear the lacy red lingerie that inspired it. Click through to check out a few fabulous slips, bras, and corsets to bring a little sexy Shakira style into your bedroom (or under your work clothes, if you’re feeling particularly daring!)…
