Lingerie Diva Dish - March Edition

Spring is officially here! And at some point, the warm weather will follow. ;-) While you wait for the sunshine, take a few minutes to read these links from around the lingerie world.

Famed corsetiere Velda Lauder died this month, and the Lingerie Addict wrote a wonderful tribute to her.

Also from the Lingerie Addict (though, this time we dug through her archives) is this post about why lingerie just generally makes your life better.

The Lingerie Lesbian did a fun post on lingerie-inspired decorations for your bedroom.


Lost In Lingerie has a great, and cheap and easy, solution to keep your tights neatly stored.

And finally, did you know what to check for when you're shopping for a sports bra?

Spring Cleaning For Your Lingerie Drawer - What To Keep, What To Toss


It's officially spring, which means it's time for spring cleaning. Last time we wrote about spring cleaning for your lingerie drawer, we went through item by item, which is a good place to start. But if you still have lingerie that you are unsure about, here are a few more rules on what to keep and what to toss.

Spring Cleaning For Your Lingerie Drawer - What To Keep, What To Toss

Anything that you don't completely love - This excludes basic pieces like a nude T-shirt bra and shapewear (because, let's face it, there's not much excitement there). But outside of that, if you have a piece of lingerie that you don't wear because you're just not that into it, it's time to let it go.

Anything that's not pretty, practical or sentimental - If you hardly wear it but you LOVE it, then keep it. If it's not that pretty but it's a piece that you get a lot of use out of, keep it. If it's a piece that you just can't get rid of because it was the first lingerie you bought for yourself or it was what you wore for your first time, then keep it. Anything else, toss it out.

Anything that's not your style - We know that a women's tastes ebb and flow over the years, and sometimes you pull something out of your drawer that you haven't touched in years and suddenly you love it again. But if there's a piece you've pulled out, and then put right back, again and again you should just go ahead and give it up. The only exception would be for lingerie that's extremely rare, such as a vintage piece or a limited edition style.

Once you've cleared out some space, you have our permission to do some lingerie shopping to and fill that drawer back up again! ;-) Do you have any more lingerie spring cleaning tips to share? Be sure to leave them in the comments section!

A Walk On The Wild Side Of Style

The Little Black Dress is a classic, but sometimes classic can feel a bit... basic. And sometimes basic translates to boring. When you're in the mood to be something more than basic, switch things up with one of these animal print dresses.








Not feeling brave enough to go full on animal print? Then add an exotic flair to your LBD with these leopard print heels!

Light & Airy Lingerie

Light and airy. As I was brainstorming ideas for today's post, those words kept coming to mind. I know it's because the first day of Spring is the week, and the weather is finally getting warmer. The dream of peeling off those heavy winter layers and emerging like a butterfly from a cocoon is getting closer to reality.

In that spirit, this post features some of the lightest, airiest lingerie pieces I could fed. Items that - after spending months in terrycloth robes and flannel pajama pants - will feel like a breeze on your skin.






Tell me, divas, which one is your favorite?

Bring Back The Backseam!


Backseam pantyhose were the leg wear of choice in the 1940s and had a pretty good run in fashion, not falling out of style until the 1960s. Like most fashion trends, they've come back again, seeing a big resurgence just within the last year or two.

Although I had never given much thought to pantyhose or stockings before (outside of wearing them with costumes or under a fancy dress on a cold day), backseam hose have definitely made me take more interest. It’s such a simple yet powerfully sexy way to draw attention to your legs, don’t you think? Here are some of my favorite backseam designs for the spring.

There are the classics...


And these for when you need just a little pop of color.


And I just love the fun details each of these pairs have!
