I’m not usually one to go crazy for Disney Princesses or novelty lingerie (unless it involves Ninja Turtles), but I have to say, I’m unexpectedly smitten with these Disney Princess bra and panties sets from Japan. They totally capture the spirit of each princess, but in a sexy, modern way. Like, if I saw that Aurora bra at Nordstrom today, I would just throw all my cash and credit cards down on the counter and say, “I don’t even care how much it costs, GIMME THAT BRA.” Check out close-up shots of each set and tell us: would you wear them? And any guys reading: do you dig the sexy princess look? Keep reading »
UPDATE: J/K! As commenters have kindly informed us, this is actually from a Canadian humor site. Should have known. Stories like this only happen in Florida. — Amelia
Tracy Walters of Dayton, Ohio, was one of the 42 percent of women disappointed by the Christmas gift her husband gave her this year. Instead of finding a tactful way to exchange her crock pot and cheap lingerie, the 34-year-old raged out and set her husband Dave’s 2013 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab on fire.
Police arrived on the scene to find Waters throwing her husband’s clothing on the flames to fuel the fire.
“He gave me a slow-cooker and these red nylon crotchless panties with a push-up bra. The bra had tassels for fuck sake. Tassels!” she screamed.
Yikes. Tassels. Keep reading »
Fifty Shades Of Grey author E. L. James may not be the best writer, but the woman knows how to make a buck: last month she introduced Fifty Shades lingerie. The line is sold by Swedish retailer KappAhl and features undergarments and nightgowns in red, black and (of course) grey. As you can see in this elegant commercial for the Fifty Shades line, the looks are silky, classy and tame — Christian Grey would approve. It’s too bad KappAhl is only available in Europe. I hear they pair well with Fifty Shades Of Grey-themed wine and desserts — and nine months later, baby onesies. [KappAhl; Wall Street Journal]
This picture here? This is lingerie for kids. The mesh lace over the belly and the butt? The lace on the sides? If I wasn’t convinced already due to my own familiarity with lingerie as a grownup lady, I would turn right to the Porscha Starr press release and its vehement protestations that their lingerie for kids as young as eight is “age-appropriate” and not lingerie:
Intimate apparel has never been created for all women of all ages, until now. … Porscha Starr Lingerie will launch the first adolescent apparel collection in the United States. In the past retailers have failed to present a comfortable selection that is not only socially acceptable by parents but age appropriate for its target market. … Porscha Starr is well known for its sexy, edgy, alluring, futuristic, fashion forward designs. However this line is NOT to be confused with lingerie. The Starrlett collection is a charming, appealing and most important an age appropriate line fashioned specifically for young girls.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t air on television until December 10, so if you’re the type of person that likes to see the looks live for the first time (do those people exist?), SPOILER ALERT. Sexiness is in the eye of the beholder, to be certain, but if these over-the-top outfits are the brand’s idea of sexy, well, all’s fair in lingerie and war. This year’s themes were “British Invasion,” “Birds of Paradise,” “Parisian Nights,” “Shipwrecked,” “Snow Angels,” and “PINK Network.” Sure, fine, but let’s see how they did!
Here are just 13 of the many, many VS looks that made us go, what? …

If you have smaller breasts, it can be hard to find bras made for your body that aren’t made for preteens, because for some reason the lingerie industry has yet to discover that women’s breasts and bodies come in all sizes. After finding a slew of bras that are available in larger sizes, I got a few emails requesting bras for smaller breasts. I found 20 sexy, grown up bras that are either explicitly made for smaller breasts in the AAA-A range, or are at least available in smaller sizes. See all 20 sexy bras on The Gloss…
If your tits could tweet, what would they say? Well, now you can kind of, sort of, find out – OgilvyOne Athens has created a bra that tweets every time it’s unclasped, giving your special list of followers a heads up that you’re free-boobin’ it. The thing is, 99 percent of the time that I take my bra off, it’s to do something boring, like pass out topless in bed, alone, while eating a Talenti ice cream bar. Anyway, the truth is, the tweeting bra isn’t available to the public, but it is being used by a Greek actress for the next few weeks, and her tits tweet a link to the Nestlé Fitness website, which offers tips on how to do a breast self-exam. Definitely a more worthwhile message than “Right now, Amelia is cupping her bare right boob while watching ‘Scandal.’” [Ad Week]

I threw away all my underwear today. Scratch that. Today, I threw away all of my underwear that would be classified as “lacy little things,” “thongs,” or, in Victoria’s Secret parlance, “cheekies.” Scratchy, itchy, barely-there? It had to go.
I have never lived alone, but in two weeks I will be moving into my first solo apartment. I will be sans-roommate, single girl-ing all up in this city; I am woman, hear me roar! Among the many horrid chores of moving, there is one beacon of joy: the Great Purge. I am a packrat by nature — note every 5K bib I’ve preserved, the melted plastic cup twisted by a deck fire, the tile from the floor of a hostel in San Juan — but moving is the kick in the butt I need to separate what I hoard sentimentally (all of the above) and what I hoard lazily.
The underwear is lazy. No pair has been purchased in the last four years. No pair has been worn more than five times. No pair brings a smile to my face or a steamy memory to the forefront of my mind. The truth, quite simply, is that I hate them all. About a hundred bucks and eight ounces of lace and elastic are now buried by garbage and I feel fantastic. Keep reading »
