Lingerie Diva Dish - November Edition

As we begin the Christmas season, this month's Diva Dish is filled with new of high tech lingerie, leakless undies and a new, and unusual lingerie line for men.

An Italian company is making corsets out of the same materials used to make scuba equipment and avalanche prevention gear. The strong but stretchy fabric keeps you tucked in while still being comfortable.
We can see the scuba gear resemblance.

The Stir has a list of  "5 ways to keep your bras looking good for a long time."

New brand Dear Kate is specializing in "leak-proof, stain-resistant" underwear, perfect for that time of the month, new moms and women with incontinence.

For Christmas, Linda The Bra Lady has a guide for men on how to buy lingerie gifts for their significant others.

Yoko Ono has released a line of men's lingerie based on sketches from her late husband, John Lennon. The pieces are... interesting, to say the least.
Because nothing says sexy like a man bra and hand pants.

Lingerie Diva Gives Thanks

Last year, our Thanksgiving post was about the lingerie that we were thankful for. Since this was a pretty timeless piece, we decided to take a bit different angle this year. So here is what we're thankful for in the lingerie world this year, from trends to new innovations and everything in between!

1. 50 Shades Of Grey - Who would have guessed that a series about an S&M relationship would be the best-selling books this year? Not only did these books spark a sexual revolution of sorts, opening women up to new possibilities and giving them the courage to try new things, they also drove sales of toys and lingerie  through the roof, with retailers all over the world (including us) benefiting.

2. Getting the look for less - It seems that now more than ever, it's easy to get lingerie pieces and sets that look and feel like designer, luxury brands but without the high end price tags! To see just a few examples of this, check out this post and this post.

3. Fabulous florals - One of the biggest lingerie trends this year was the return of flirty, feminine floral patterns. We were excited to finally see floral prints pop up on our website, and hope there will be even more in the next year!

4. Pinterest - This one might seem a bit odd, but Pinterest has quickly become one of our favorite ways to share our products with people! We also loving seeing what other items everyone is pinning.

5. The start of holiday collections - This is such an exciting time because we're adding new items almost daily as lingerie brands roll out their Christmas/Valentine's holiday collections! This is the time when brands really go all out, with designs that have more oomph, are a bit more special, than the rest of the year.

Now tell us, divas, what lingerie trend/piece/design/etc. are you most thankful for this year?

The Look For Less - Marlies Dekkers

When Marlies Dekkers unveiled its now-signature Dame De Paris bra, featuring a unique and sexy strappy-cupped bra, the lingerie world went nuts for it. It's easy to see why; this bra was sexy and sophisticated and completely new. It was also the perfect underwear-as-outerwear piece.

All of Marlie Dekker's luxury lines - Dame De Paris, Triangle and Space Odyssey; all part of the Undressed collection - feature straps. Straps on the bras and thongs, straps in the front and back. We love them, and are so excited to show you some similar designs that we've had on for awhile.

To give you a price point comparison, Marlies Dekkers items run between approximately $50 to $160 (varying by collection and style). So for about the price of one bra, you could buy every Lingerie Diva item featured - what a steal! What do you think, divas? Are you a fan of strappy lingerie?

Quotable Divas - Coco Chanel

It would be hard to find a woman who knew more about style than Coco Chanel, don't you agree? 

We were inspired by this quote to search for some lingerie sets that said "classy and fabulous" to us. Here are just a few of our finds.

Steal Her Style - Vintage Sophia Loren

This is a first for our "Steal Her Style" series; we've never featured a vintage photograph of an actress before. But when we saw these pictures of Sophia Loren doing a striptease in the Italian film "Ieri, Oggi, Domani" (which translates to "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow") we knew we had to post them!

To copy Sophia's sexy look, here are a few black lace bustiers that will work...

And of course, don't forget the stockings!

Christmas Boudoir Outfit Ideas

You've decided that this Christmas you're going to gift your man with some sexy boudoir pictures (which we think is a fabulous gift idea). You've found the photographer, booked the shoot and now... you just have to find a few perfect outfits that he'll love and that make you feel fabulous. Easy, right?

When it comes to picking out a boudoir outfit, there's no right or wrong answer as long as you feel comfortable and confident in it. But if you need some outfit inspiration, we think these lingerie sets (some very Christmas-y and some not) will make any diva look amazing!
