It’s a good day for thigh-obsessed Londoners. Why? Because their beloved cellulite-busting panties are finally back in stores. Scala Bio Fir Anti-Cellulite knickers, which sold out completely within 24 hours when they first reached stores in May, have now exclusively returned to John Lewis, a British chain store. The “miracle” undies promise to help wearers lose inches on their tummies, thighs and hips via mysterious bio crystals that warm up with wear and melt fat off the body. Besides the thousands of Brits who have gone mad for it, celebs like Sienna Miller are also reputed fans. In an interview, John Lewis’s lingerie buyer, Helen Spencer, explained that the store is prepping for round two of buying madness over the undies. “This product has created a real phenomenon among women, with customers buying up to 10 pairs each.” Either they really do work, or it’s simply a case of massive amounts of wishful thinking.

When it comes to exercising, rarely do we expect fun. But getting our asses to the gym is bad enough without having to stuff the girls into ill-fitting sports bras, cutting off circulation and inspiring fits of anger while we’re operating heavy machinery. Large-chested girls everywhere know what we’re talking about: sports bra feels more like an industrial support device than workout wear. Well, Lululemon’s as sick of that as you are. The brand, purveyors of fancy dance, yoga and running wear, have just released their famed Ta Ta Tamer sports bra in sizes up to DD. We tried one out and our breasts felt pretty damn tamed but — and here’s the twist — the bra wasn’t so tight and uncomfortable that we couldn’t breathe while wearing it! [$58, Lululemon]

I am a big fan of “alone time” and “space,” which is one of the many reasons I will not be buying a pair of Fundies underwear anytime soon. Some things in life were indeed built for two: See-saws, cats cradle, thumb war, patty cake, etc. Underwear, not so much. Perhaps I am just a square or closed-minded, but I am an only child and I was never good at sharing. From a style point of view, Fundies are not horrific. Boring, yes, but I am not going to avert my eyes in disgust. That being said, I don’t think Fundies were created or are bought for style reasons. Oh yes, this product is meant to live in kinky-ville. Not that Fundies look particularly sexy-time to me, but maybe that’s just because I am imagining the logistical difficulties of two people trying to get into these. I doubt the packaging says this, but it should contain a warning for the uncoordinated. All joking aside, I recommend buying these. Not only are they dirt cheap, but it’s always good to have a gag gift or two around the house. I also feel like promoting this classic if only because it has been around for decades and has had the same packaging for over 20 years. To survive so long in the ever changing fashion world, that earns my respect. [$9.99, Fundies, ShopInPrivate.com} Keep reading »
I was trying really hard not to mock the daylights out of Under-Ease, the anti-flatulence underwear from the peeps at Under-Tec, but I failed. You gotta admit, the name does not inspire confidence. Still, the eau de fart, or more officially referred to as malodorous flatus, is a literal bummer. If you think about it, the lot of the prolific farters is a rough one. We all make fart jokes and occasionally let out a real ripper, but it must actually bite to regularly set off stink bombs at school, at work, or on a date. In theory if you wear Under-Ease, your hot date will never know you cut the cheese. Unless of course you order a cheese plate. I myself am partial to stinky goopey french cheese which my dates have found far more disgusting than a fart or two. Keep reading »
We love fancy undies here at The Frisky, but when it comes to a decision between some good ‘ol cotton briefs for $10 and a lacy, do-me-now pair totally taking advantage of our wallets for $100, granny panties sometimes win. But in a world where pretty much everything is on sale these days, pretty panties are no exception. A few websites are particularly dedicated to getting you laid for less. Check out their offerings after the jump. Keep reading »
Apple’s ubiquitous “i” has found its way to our nether regions — or, at least the fabric that covers them. iPanties are the latest in a long list of products to get “i”dolized. With a “slide to unlock” guide along the crotch, these panties are cute and helpful…and the possibility for downloadable applications are endless.

If you’ve spent days, months, years sitting around wishing, dreaming, hoping for a chandelier made of lingerie, you, my friend, are in luck. Check out this pantychandelier currently on view at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City. Hot or not? Apartment Therapy wonders. Hard to say. In the comments, people can’t make up their minds if they love it or hate it. “A naked bulb would be a lot sexier than this.” “[T]hat is completely ridiculous. tasteless. looks like someone just threw their underwear up onto the chandelier …” “I get this already since my neighbor hangs all her bras and lingerie on the drapery rod in her dining room which is across from my dining room window. I can tell you it isn’t something you really want to see while eating.” Personally, I think it’s kind of awesome, in a strange sort of way. It’s sort of like if Dita von Teese exploded, and this is all that was left of her, her lingerie hanging from the light fixture. So, what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Or don’t know what to make of it? [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »
I’ve always been a bit envious of friends who could go sans bra without feeling crazy self-conscious. That level of hippie-esque chest freedom, I figured, has to be awesome.
So, I tried it and going braless is definitively not awesome, if you ask me. That said, being married to a bra shouldn’t keep you from wearing slinky, criss-crossed fashions all summer long.
If you want to pull it off, you’ve got to get creative with your undergarments. Keep reading »
Another reason you bra-less babes should wear a brassiere … Super-supportive underwear saved the life of a 57-year-old woman in Detroit when it deflected a bullet. A group of men broke into her neighbor’s house, and when she spotted them, one of the men fired a gun at her. Little did he know, she was wearing a formidable underwire bra! Cops said her brassiere “slowed the bullet down,” and even though she was injured, she didn’t die. And all my push-up bra has ever done for me is gotten me leered at. (While “life-saved-by-underwire-bra” is a great story, it’s not as great as the woman whose hair weave took a bullet for her. Now that’s loyalty.) [Reuters] Keep reading »
