La La La Lingerie

No one loves a pair of cotton underpants more than I. Preferably low on the hips, and boy cut. Super easy, a reach for them go to.

Maybe it has a little something to do with my single girl status or that I just watched La Perla’s Spring/Summer 2014 launch video, but I’ve been reminded of the power that is lingerie.

It’s, “the closest thing to a woman’s skin, the first and last thing she puts on and takes off.” There’s romanticism in that. And, really, couldn’t we all use a little more romance?

Whether you’re trying to make a good impression for the one you love or just want to add some magic to your daily dressing ritual…

It’s not weird.

It’s underwear.



Come with me.

Out of the undies rut.


Les Coquines 'Domenique' Cheeky Hipster Briefs

Les Coquines ‘Domenique’ Cheeky Hipster Briefs. No matter your shape, the low slung hip with a V-cut is universally flattering. These let a little cheek hang out, so if that bothers you, keep looking for ones that don’t. I happen to like a little cheekiness!

DKNY Under Bust Bodysuit

DKNY Under Bust Bodysuit. I tried this and it’s just as pretty on. Hard to be believe it’s a shaper. Love the under bust aspect.

SPANX® 'Slimmer & Shine' Open Bust Bodysuit

Spanx Slimmer & Shine Open Bodysuit. Same idea as the DKNY, but the Spanx material is much thicker. Size up. It runs really small.

Pretty Polly 'Suspended' Tights

Pretty Polly Suspended Tights. I think I wrote about these a while back. Tights are one of the best things about winter, but I’m over boring black opaque.

Hanky Panky 'Wild Cat Strikes Again' Open Gusset Hipster Briefs

Hanky Panky ‘Wild Cat Strikes Again’ Open Gusset Hipster Briefs. I know. I know. Open gusset? They scream sex. But seriously. How cute! The thongs are apparently the most comfortable you’ll ever try.

Only Hearts Colorblock Hipster Briefs

Only Hearts is by far my favorite lingerie line. Their pieces are thoughtfully designed, and even their most “lingerie-ish” are wearable. These Colorblock Hipster Briefs are a great example.

Only Hearts 'So Fine' Patchwork Hipster Briefs

Only Hearts.

Only Hearts 'So Fine' Lace Hipster Briefs

Only Hearts ‘So Fine’ Lace Hipster Briefs.

Only Hearts 'Whisper Sweet Nothings' Keyhole Hipster Briefs

Aren’t hese are beautiful! Only Hearts ‘Whisper Sweet Nothings’ Keyhole Hipster Briefs.

Eberjey 'Colette' Racerback Bralette

Eberjey ‘Colette’ Racerback Bralette. For a-c cups.

Chantelle Intimates 'Cachemire' Full Support Underwire Bra

You can’t go wrong with Chantelle. Chantelle Intimates ‘Cachemire’ Full Support Underwire. Tried this. It’s pretty perfect.

Natori 'Feathers' Underwire Bra

Natori ‘Feathers’ Underwire Bra. Love Natori. Unless you want spillage, size up in the cup on this one.

  1. Whoa – I can tell where your mind is! I love the keyhole briefs – but seriously I worry that I would feel naked and a tad vulnerable with a hole on my crack:)

    • Now Joanna. Don’t tell me you don’t have a drawer full of pretty things. Really, I’m just sick of my sad and cotton underwear choices! The thing with the whole in the crack is a little extreme, though. Couldn’t help it, however. The cut with the black at the bottom… just LOVE!
