Yes, there is more important news about President Barack Obama expressing his public support for marriage equality. But these are bras with ice in them. They are from Japan, and they were created in response to the shutdown of the country’s nuclear reactors following the Fukushima catastrophe. This means that Japanese citizens are encouraged to avoid using air conditioners. Finally — women will have a way to keep their breasts cool and nipples erect for days on end. Gentlemen, consider this a consolation prize while you sweat your balls off, because there is no such contraption for you … yet. Read more …
It’s not an accident that when I rummage through my underwear drawer on laundry day, the only pair I can find is a lacy red thong or a silky black G-string. I wear my favorite intimates first, and am then left with the rest as a last resort. But in my case, the last resort is what other people would call “sexy lingerie.”
Yes, I’m a lover of granny panties.
Back in high school, I joined in with the rest of my friends were trying on tiny undies and thong shopping. This is the only reason I own “sexy underwear” to begin with — they’re left over from my experimental days. As I grew up, I came to two conclusions. One, granny panties are fucking comfortable, and two, the only person I should worry about impressing is myself. Keep reading »
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, on their own.
Each of the 20 or so bras comes with the exact same descriptor: “Made to be seen. Made to dance. Layer under a tank or wear it on its own…” Looking at the three bras featured on the “Concert Bra” section of the site, I could see reasonably wearing the two on the right without a top over them. But the one on the left? It seems a tad revealing to be worn out in public to a non-beach-going area. But okay, let’s say you’re comfortable in that bra, would you wear one of the following, sans shirt, outside of your house?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is professionally hot, but her attempts to cross over into the acting realm have been tenuous. After all, she never really sold herself as an actress, just a model who — surprise! — happens to be both excruciatingly good-looking and decent enough at following directions, which was more than good enough for Michael Bay. Rosie’s next foray is into the design sphere with a lingerie collection to be distributed by British high street giant Marks & Spencer. Not-so-serendipitously, she already models for the brand’s Autograph intimates line, so her branch of it is simply a “natural extension” of Rosie’s relationship with the retailer. The collection, which she will be the face of, will be called Rosie for Autograph and consists of 33 pieces, including bras, panties, camisoles, and kimonos. The items will have a pink rose motif, which is only intuitive for someone called Rosie. A stroke of genius, I say. [NYMag.com]
This weekend, I was taking a cooking class with a friend when I was overcome with annoyance that my lips were chapped and my lip balm was tucked inside my purse all the way across the room. “Grr, I need lipbalm!” I whispered. “No problem!” my friend replied, reaching down the front her shirt and whipping out a tube of Chapstick.
We’re good enough friends that I don’t have any qualms with using Chapstick that was nestled between her bosoms (she later explained that the bra she was wearing is so roomy that she can store stuff inside the cups); but for those ladies who would prefer to store their miscellaneous crap alongside their own titties, there’s this miraculous invention: the Joey Bra! The Joey Bra has build-in pockets for stowing away everything from your credit cards to your iPhone, with no one the wiser. Why didn’t anyone think of this before? Genius! I’ll have to tell my friend to get one — as soon as she gets properly sized, that is. [$19.99, Joey Bra]
All bras are not created equal! Let’s take a look at some other over-the-shoulder boulder holders than dare to be different.
These days, Victoria’s Secret is associated with straight up sex appeal. But back in the ’70s, the lingerie company’s catalog was more cheesy, soft lighting and elegant romance than sexy curves. The folks over at Beverly Hills Honeys unearthed this classic Vicky’s Secret catalog from 1979 and it’s full of high buns, satin pajamas and unlikely scenarios. Take a peek at some of our favorite selections for a retro-flavored laugh.
I would never speak ill of Dita Von Teese. Ever. However, I cannot endorse the dress that the burlesque performer wore in Australia when she launched her Von Follies lingerie line at Target. (It’s only Down Under. Booooo.) It looks like Dita’s lacy bra is trying to escape out of her J.Lo-cut dress on purpose! If your name is anything other than “Dita Von Teese,” how can you possibly wear a dress like this without constantly being stopped by well-meaning folks telling you they can see your bro? I’m more pro-Wearing Lingerie As Outerwear than some other ladies on The Frisky staff, but the escaping bra is a confusing look.
But other than that … rock on, Dita.
There’s nothing worse than meeting Person Whose Job You Want at a party and not having any way to contact them again, foiling your plans to kidnap them and slurp up their brains. An up-and-coming career lady such as yourself has got to have business cards and if your field lets you be quirky, go with it! We think these two-sided cards featuring a retro lady lingerie do the trick. Just be very, very clear your actual profession is not a lady of the night. [$56 for 100, Etsy]
Boudoir dressing is undeniably trendy right now, but nobody ever said it was easy to pull off. The concept in and of itself is intimidating — lingerie worn not beneath your clothes, but as your clothes? It’s enough to send me straight back to bed. Though runways and catalogues would like us to believe that you can wear your laciest, most plunging bra as a top, no problem, head-to-toe lingerie styling is best left for the flat-chested, lanky-limbed, and modelesque. If that’s you, well, you’ve pretty much got it made, but for the rest of us who aren’t quite so genetically blessed, there are still plenty of ways to integrate this sensual, ultra-feminine vibe into your every day style.
