  • Back to Black

    Background on black lingerie

    Tantalizing yet timeless, black lingerie has become synonymous with seduction. But this wasn’t always the case. Black clothing and lingerie has an interesting history dating back to the Victorian Era. Curious?

    After her husband passed, a woman was expected to be in mourning for over two years. An important part of this ritual was wearing black clothing head to toe, including accessories and underwear. She was also expected to live a secluded, celibate life—yet a widow could move more freely in society more than an unmarried woman (one of the many paradoxes of this time). During this period, some widows opted for more on-trend, of-the-moment black fashions including lace and silk. And with these styles came matching black corsets and undergarments. This behavior created the link between black lingerie and deviance. The next step? Black lingerie and sex appeal.

    This association was further solidified in movies of the early twentieth century, and later with film noir and femme fatales of the 40s. Usually black lingerie was part of a dangerous woman’s plans of seduction—and a visual reminder of dominance and sexual power.

    In the 50s, lingerie began to look refined and chic to match the quintessential little black dress of the times. Fast-forward to today and black lingerie is a given in women’s top drawers. It’s the ultimate way to flatter your figure and feel unstoppably confident.

    Black lingerie is equally perfect for everyday wear and special behind-closed-door moments. Celebrate black lingerie with these stunning styles.

  • 7 Simple Ways to Feel Sexy

It’s time to break the spell. Here are 7 small ways to get back on track. After all, feeling good and feeling sexy go hand-in-hand.

    1. Indulge in the small stuff.

    Whether it’s a mani/pedi or a long bath with candles, little pampering moments can go a long way. If nothing else, they’re a reminder that you deserve it. And confidence equals sexiness.

    2. Slip on some high heels.

    3. Exercise in nature.

    Get endorphins pumping and you’ll feel better in an instant. These chemicals alter your mindset, refresh your senses and give you a burst of feel-good energy.

    4. Repeat a mantra.

    Sometimes you need to fake it ‘til you make it. And the best part? It works. Stand in front of a mirror and say nice things to yourself—all the things you’d say to a good friend or sister. For example: “I am beautiful. I am confident. I am loved.” 

    5. Laugh.

    Laughter releases the good chemicals in your brain. Pull up YouTube or go to a comedy club for some guaranteed giggles. Smiling and laughing causes a ripple effect…next thing you know, you’ll feel back to your sexy self.

    6. Switch things up.

    Routines can be the enemy. Try something novel, like a cooking class (many are free at cooking stores) or a day trip to stimulate your mind, body and life.

    7. Try new shapewear.

    Create an hourglass shape with stunning shapers and lingerie. You’ll love the way you look. And a little lace never hurt anything either. Even if you keep it a secret, wearing a seductive corset under your clothes is a surefire way to feel sexier instantly.

  • Valentine's Day Gift Trend: You!

    Flirty Boudoir Photography

    A present he’ll love to unwrap? Your boudoir photos.

    A provocative new trend, boudoir photography has become especially popular with brides-to-be as a wedding present for their groom. Why not take this intimate idea and apply to another romantic occasion: Valentine’s Day.

    The suggestive photos are usually taken wearing elegant lingerie or nothing at all. However the style is far from X-rated, more in the realm of PG-13. Usually with a pinup-inspired look and feel, the tasteful photos often show implied nudity—meaning you're not wearing anything, but also not revealing anything. For example, the artistic photos might be shot from the back or lying on your stomach so key areas are strategically hidden.

    When choosing what lingerie you want to wear for your photo shoot, the most important thing is that you feel 100% comfortable and confident. If you’re hesitant about your ensemble, it’ll show in the photos.  A general rule is to bring lingerie in different styles and shades. Try something in softer hues (whites, ivories or pinks) something black (ideally with lace) and something unexpected for variety. Also don’t forget to accessorize with jewelry, stockings and heels.

    Where to start? These 4 stunning Hourglass Angel corset-and-thong sets flatter your figure in ultimate style—and they’ll make for unforgettable photos.  Have fun!
