History of Lingerie: The Teddy

I'm going to start a new post on this blog called "History of Lingerie" where I'll write about the history of different pieces of lingerie every Wednesday. Because I don't know very much about the teddy, I decided to start with it. The teddy was first made as a more practical garment (instead of the sexier versions we see today) that combined the panty and camisole. The first teddy was made in the early 1900s and marketed as an "envelope chemise" or "camiknickers" (pictured to the right). This piece was quite popular for the times because it was easy to wear under shorter dresses, and while women worked during World War II, it was easy to wear under pants as well. Camiknickers started losing popularity at the end of the '40s and wasn't seen again in the lingerie market until the '90s when it was marketed as a "teddy" instead. While it certainly has a lot in common with the bodysuit, the teddy covers a lot less and is more sheer.

You can get some very sexy ones at
Lingerie Diva. I love this one by Rene Rofe for only $18.65 (pictured to the left).

11 Lingerie Shopping Dos and Don’ts This Holiday Season

It’s time to buckle down and get serious about Christmas shopping. If you’ve held off until now, stay calm. Remember: it’s the thought that counts — but who are we kidding? — it’s definitely the gift that will score you points. Before you continue any further, make sure to read these simple lingerie shopping dos and don’ts before you make any disastrous purchases:
  1. Do check out Lingerie Diva’s lingerie glossary if you don’t know the difference between a babydoll and a bustier.
  2. Don’t buy the first think you see because you think it’s sexy. There are several types of lingerie that are all sexy on different people and body types.
  3. Do get something you think your significant other will be comfortable wearing.
  4. Don’t buy something just because you want to see them in it. Keep in mind that it’s Christmas, not Valentine’s Day or your anniversary.
  5. Do shop for their body. If you don’t know their size, investigate a bit more!
  6. Don’t buy your partner a small because you think it will flatter them. Find out their size and then compare it with the manufacturer’s sizing charts.
  7. Do buy several presents instead of one big one. It’s more thoughtful and shows you thought about them that much more.
  8. Don’t buy the same item in several different colors. Variety is always good!
  9. Do invest in something that helps set the mood. Romantic kits and massage oils add a special touch.
  10. Don’t worry too much. Lingerie is a really thoughtful gift to give that shows you care and are attempting to be romantic.
  11. Do trust your instincts. I'm sure your partner will like whatever you think they will, as long as you put a little thought into it.

Leggings: Friend or Foe?

I don't know, but something about this legging trend gets me all torn up inside. As a kid of the '80s, I'm scared to go back to my old ways: leggings with stirrups matched with shirts the size of potato sacks. Of course, leggings are back with a sexier attitude, but I still get a little weary every time I have to climb into a pair. But somehow I can't not wear them.
I usually go for the opaque footless tights — just plain black — with whatever outfit I'm wearing, whether it be brown or navy or all black. However, when I'm feeling a bit frisky, I like the fishnet footless tights. All of the ones I wear are footless: I just can't bear the idea of wearing anything resembling a stirrup again. I haven't tried any patterned ones yet, like footless tights with skull prints or ones with sheer horizontal stripes, but something tells me I'd love them. And I hate to admit it, but they do keep me a lot warmer. Wearing them with a nice pair of boots is certainly fashionable, but all I know is that I will never step into a potato-sack-sized shirt again. I don't care if Katie Holmes is doing it!
What about you? Have leggings been making your inner child a bit nauseous? Or do you love the new trend?
