Gigi’s Closet Is Back and Better Than Ever!

The owners of Lingerie Diva recently purchased fine lingerie online store Gigi’s Closet. The ever-expanding company already owns sister sites Corsets Diva and Lingerie Savings; however, Gigi’s Closet offers a different appeal for lingerie shoppers specifically seeking fine lingerie. Their new selection of sleepwear is especially sexy this spring, including this new dot tricot babydoll (left) from Betsey Johnson for only $78. This baiser brulant nightie (below) from Aubade is another sexy option for just $75 because it has that burlesque-look everyone is craving this season.

But Gigi’s is not just about elegant lingerie. It’s about making women feel sexy and confident. The store’s DD+ department and Maternity department provide a place that helps buxom and pregnant customers find sexy lingerie because at Gigi’s Closet, everyone deserves beautiful lingerie. Just like their motto says: “Life is short. Wear pretty underwear.”

Keep Those Tummies Sexy

Women no longer have to worry about keeping their tummies in at the expense of wearing something attractive because shapewear is getting sexy — at least sexy enough for Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez to wear. Both the Yummie Tummie and DuMi shape wear offer sexier colors, fabrics and styles that make shapewear (or waist cinchers) more appealing.

The Yummie Tummie is a body shaper (or girdle), but it comes in a variety of styles from razorback to strapless. Instead of thick elastic bands, the Yummie Tummie is a thin cotton garment with a tight, stretchy tricot band around the torso. But they still smooth out any unwanted curves or bulges and can be found at places like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom’s for just $62. DuMi shapewear is another brand that sells sexier shapewear. Their panties may keep in your waist, but you would never know their intention with the lacey details on them. So, next time you think about putting on that gigantic piece of underwear, think about the Yummie Tummie or DuMi shapewear instead.

Three-in-One Fun!

Shirley of Hollywood recently unveiled their new collection of sexy costumes — Shirley Dress Ups — but this year you won’t have to narrow your role-playing down to just one costume or outfit. This new collection of costumes gives you three ideas in one. By mixing and matching different accessories, you can wear this dress up as a costume or even just match the corset up with your favorite pair of jeans. And the best part is that all of the accessories come in the box. So, instead of taking a corset and gradually buying things to go with it, you have everything you need to make the perfect party outfit, adult costume or sexy bedroom number. These multi-wear costumes come in 14 different styles, giving customers a variety of three sexy looks for a lot less.

The Freedom of a Loincloth

Although technology continues to advance at warp speed, the lingerie world is taking a step back and reintroducing women to a more primitive design: the loincloth. Japanese lingerie maker, Wacoal, recently launched their new line of lingerie called “fundoshi” (in Japanese). In the past, loincloths (or fundoshi) were traditionally worn by men, but now they’re bringing them back for women. The idea is to try and liberate women from their body-hugging boyshorts and thongs. A loincloth creates more freedom and comfort between the legs, even allowing space for a little breeze. While these new pieces are definitely beyond conventional, the company has already sold 5, 000 since December, which is three times what they expected, according to this article in Reuters. They’re so popular that Wacoal plans to start selling them in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. The loincloths come in seven different colors and two designs (plain and checkered). And for only $13 (or 1,260 yen), freedom has never been so cheap!

No More Granny Bras!

Good news is finally here for large-chested women! Designers have decided that 2009 is the year that larger bras get to be sexy. Before now, a 36DD could only be found in discount bins in blah colors like white or beige. And they were designed to look more like armor than a sexy undergarment. With four hooks to attach the back and straps more than an inch thick, it’s no wonder that women have been denying their true size. But ever since designers realized that the larger bras were some of their best sellers, they’ve decided to start making more this year. And not just the granny white and beige kind either.

Why the sudden change? In the past couple of years, the average woman’s cup size has grown from a 36C (in 2006) to a 36D (in 2008), and now in 2009 the average is a 36DD. While some blame it on weight gain, most experts say that it’s related to what’s known as the “Oprah Effect,” according to The New York Times. Ever since Oprah asked women if they were wearing the right bra size, ladies across the nation have been finding the answer! And that answer is that most women have larger breasts than they actually realize. So, look forward to a sexier, fuller 2009!

If you haven’t measured yourself recently, read this guide on how to do it accurately. Also, check out Lingerie Diva for some great bras (including the one above) that are larger than a 36C. For women with a band size of 40 or larger, check out our plus-size bras!

Saved by Lacy Underwear

If you ever travel to the North Pole, you might want to take a few extra pairs of panties with you; not for warmth, but for navigation. A group of explorers with the Caitlin Arctic Survey are investigating the thickness of the shrinking Arctic ice cap and encountered a bit of a navigation problem during their 700 mile trip. Compasses go haywire in the magnetic pole and modern GPS systems can't endure the extreme weather. The brave explorers are using lacy panties attached to a ski pole to determine the direction they are traveling.

Navigator Ann Daniels says "we're currently relying on more traditional methods for day-to-day navigation, using the sun (for those few precious hours each day when it graces us with its presence), and using wind direction, as indicated by the panties…" The light weight and thin material of the panties easily flap in the wind, making them a great flag of sorts to observe the wind direction.

So ladies, if your significant others ever give you a hard time about buying or owning so many pairs of panties, just tell them how much they will come in handy when you get lost and they won't stop for directions!
