The Evolution Of Undies In 10 Photos

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…

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Ridiculous, As Usual

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…

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…

And now Victoria's Secret is selling an outfit called "Sexy Little Geisha" featuring an "Oriental" patterned fan and…

Photoshop Disaster: Have You Seen My Labia?

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…

Meet The Most Perfect Pair Of $5 Panties

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…

Panty Power: How Pretty Underwear Can Boost Body Image

Two weeks ago, I went for a bra fitting. Having been told by dozens of style experts that 137 percent of women wear the wrong bra size, I fully expected to be told that my 34C was FAR too small/big/narrow/high/thick/whatever for my frame. Miraculously, the lingerie shop owner confirmed that I was already wearing the…

Do Not Want: Geometric Black Panties

When I first saw these Stella McCartney panties, I thought I was staring at pubic hair sculpted in the shape of the Weezer logo. It was a very confusing moment for me. [$52, Revolve Clothing]…

11 Foodkinis You Probably Shouldn’t Swim In, But Can Definitely Snack On

I don't know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can't wear it while I swim? At least I won't have to…

Aerie Is Selling Bras As Shirts Now

I love a corset, personally. But when is a corset top not really a corset and actually just a bra? That's a delicate question the folks over at Aerie should be asking themselves, since they've launched a line of "Concert Bras," which they say are made to be worn under clothes or, you know, o…
