My Life In Panties: 4 Pairs That I’ll Never Forget

The Clap-Off Bra Will Change The World

It was just a matter of time before the sound-activated technology people used to turn lights on and off in the '80s would be applied to our undergarments. The possibilities are endless with artist Randy Sarafan's Clap-Off Bra. Seriously, you just clap your hands and the tit sling falls right off.  Just think: Inexperienced teenage boy…

Debenhams, European Department Store, Won’t Airbrush Lingerie Models Anymore

Yesterday, Debenhams, a European department store, announced on Facebook that it is scaling back on airbrushing images of lingerie models, citing a "moral" imperative to portray women's bodies more naturally.

Jockey Wants To Simplify The Bra-Fitting Process By Adding 55 New Sizes

Thanks to some very intimate prodding and squeezing by a Nordstrom lingerie specialist, I know my bra size is 36F, although sometimes 38E might be a better choice, and then there's that one brand in which a 34D is the only size that works, and another which will barely contain my breasts even if I…

Model Kylie Bisutti Slams Victoria’s Secret, VS Bites Back

Ladies, Meet Your Bras

Most of us have a lingerie drawer that's overflowing with bras that serve a very specific purpose, from making our breasts look three sizes bigger than they actually are to smashing them into an immovable uni-boob for our trips to the gym. A great comic called "Bras We Have Known" has bee…

Designer Debuts First Lingerie Colostomy Bags

When it comes to colostomy bags and other necessary medical equipment, there tends to be a shortage in the "pretty" department. Of course, items like these are not intended to look sexy; therefore, they are not made to look sexy. But what about women who want to feel beautiful in every way, including with their…

Valege Lingerie Presents A Pair Of Animated Tits Bumping Nipples (NSFW)

French lingerie line Valega made some weird boob cartoons to promote their Finally Together push up bra. The ads feature animated breasts (with arms and legs) joyfully reuniting. In this commercial, right and left breasts meet at the airport and engage in a highly disturbing nipple bumping squishfest. The other spots take place respectively at…

It’s About Time: Chrysalis Lingerie Makes Underwear Specifically For Trans Women

Transgender women make up an ever-growing demographic, so it would make sense that new businesses would crop up to attend to their specific needs.

Are These Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Lingerie Ads Degrading To Women?

Britain's Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has a reputation for cracking down on campaigns that are otherwise seen as, well, fairly innocuous. Maybe our country's lack of a similar bureaucratic process has desensitized us to what is and isn't acceptable for widespread, billboarded consumption (see: anything ever released by the ironically-named American Apparel), or maybe English…

The Anti-Rape Panties Of “Victoria’s Secret”

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…
