Swedish Lingerie Store Has Employees Display Bra Size

Nine-and-a-half-times out of 10 I completely agree with other feminists about what they identify as sexism. But sometimes I really do disagree and the lingerie shop in Sweden that asks employees to display their bra size on their name tags is one of those times. The chain store, Change, has asked their female sales clerk…

Beauty Test Drive: Can Bra Shopping At Home Really Work?

For me, dating and bra shopping are analogous. I enter both scenarios with excited anticipation and high hopes of finding a good fit only to be met with similar disappointments. The attractive ones often end up making me uncomfortable. The seemingly sensible ones offer little support. Usually, both end up in either…

Crashed The Car? Gisele Says Tell Your Man In Your Skivvies

Ladies, you’re always doing silly lady things like crashing the car, or burning the steak, or going over your credit card spending limit, aren’t you? It makes your boyfriend/husband/obedience trainer so mad! But! Instead of delivering the bad news the normal, direct way, why not try stripping down to your adorable matching lingerie set…

Infographic: What Your Bra Says About You (On A Date)

Hey ladies! (And some dudes!) In honor of Bra Recycling Month (this is an actual, real thing and not just some creepy internet guy trying to get you to send him your old bras) we’re addressing that age-old question: If you hook up on a date, what can a guy tell about you from your…

Lingerie For Little Girls? Yep, A French Company Went There

Forget about candy-colored bra and panty sets from Target; there’s ickier underwear for little girls afoot. It’s lingerie, to be exact, although the French line Jours Aprés Lunes calls it “loungerie,” because it is for lounging around instead of, uh, looking sexy prior to f**king . Why, praytell, would girls ages four through 12 want…

The Dos & Don’ts Of Going Braless

When it’s hot and sticky out, no one wants to wear more than the bare minimum when it comes to clothing and it seems as though the free-flowing braless trend is on the rise this summer. Want to ditch the tight, pinching, underwire contraption that’s ruled your life ever since puberty and let the girl…

It’s National Underwear Day, Now Go Throw Out Your Underwear!

And now a pubic service announcement from everybody’s favorite bra bitch, Brianna! Happy Friday from Pantyland! Mine started in a bunch after reading a tweet that contained my two favorite things: Rob Kardashian and underwear. Even though he looks like an overgrown 10-year-old who’s allowed to drink beer, I have a soft spot in my,…

Shopping Guide: The Sexy Lingerie Life We Wish We Had

It’s easy to get into an underwear rut, especially since cotton briefs are so comfortable. But every woman needs pretty lingerie in her life for the moments when she wants to feel special and throw practicality to the wind. Here’s the lingerie we’d like to wear around the boudoir.

Finally, A Stay-Put Strapless Bra

If you’ve worn a strapless bra at least once in your life, then you’re familiar with the “jug tug,” the act of constantly repositioning your breasts in a strapless bra. This spring and summer, though, you’ll be able to keep your breasts, bra, and hands where they belong with Spanx’s Bra-Cha-Cha Strapless Bra. As the…

Our Bodies Are No Longer Fruit-Shaped

New research has shown that women would prefer their bodies be referred to as great works of art rather than pieces of fruit. They needed to do a study to figure that out? Really? Anyhow, Triumph, an Australian lingerie line, is embracing this revelation by re-branding our body types. Instead of shopping for under-thing…

Panties That Make Your Pubic Area Appear Well-Groomed

Sometimes a gal wakes up and realizes she has a specialty in life. In the journalism world, they call that a “beat.” And apparently, weird panties are my beat. Last week, I told you about panties with built-in liners which ensure your period — even when menstrual blood is leaking in your drawers — i…

Feel Sexy, Even When Your Tampon Is Leaking

So, yesterday, I ruined what I estimate to be my 57th pair of panties and stained a perfectly good pair of pajama bottoms when my tampon had a major leak. It was not a very sexy moment. But it could have been, if I had only been wearing a pair of Sexy Period panties! These…

Make Your Lady A Clap-Off Bra For Valentine’s Day

Clap on! Clap off! Clap on, clap off … your girl’s bra. Imagine I was singing that. The Clap-Off Bra is a brilliant gift idea for lazy men who don’t want to put in all that extra work to undo a bra. You can make one for the special lady in your life thi…

Would You Want To Get A Pair Of Panties In The Mail?

Personally, I’m not into lingerie being given as a gift. If my boyfriend gave me a super fancy bra and panty set — one that was clearly to be worn in the confines of the bedroom and not under regular clothing because all the bells and whistles would make for unsightly panty lines — for…

What The Heck Does An L-Cup Bra Look Like?

Bra sizes are about to hit the second half of the alphabet: meet the L cup. Yes, the L cup! Lingerie company Bravissimo is now selling the first-ever L cup, apparently, after the the KK cup they introduced two years ago failed to meet their well-endowed customers’ needs. The L cup fits a 28-inch back…

I’ll Go Commando Before I’ll Wear $40 Cotton Underwear

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue. I’ll discover a cool new beauty…

Victoria’s Secret Models Have Trouble With Their Wings

Look! It’s models getting ready to walk in the Victoria’s Secret runway show! They call this “couture.” (Hm.) They are very excited about their fittings! The theme is “A Night of 1,000 Fantasies,” which is one way of saying, “Men across the country will be masturbating to this.” There are six sections that…

Magnetic Lingerie Makes Undressing A Snap

Usually before they graduate from high school — or at least college — most people have figured out how to unhook a bra without too much hassle. But for the finger fumblers out there, a French lingerie company has designed some bras that even a toddler could tear off a woman in a matter of…

We already gave you a sneak peek at the fashions for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Now, take a look at what goes into casting the models to walk the runway. I’ve never seen anyone look so jolly while strutting in their underwear, but these women only have 30 seconds to wow the…
