Just a friendly "nightie" reminder...

wear one!

It's summer, ladies, put your nighties on. Whether you're solo or have a mate, put a sexy nightie on, enjoy the summer breeze (or A/C) flowing through your nightie.

I whipped out two vintage Natori slip nighties from my drawer and wore them (on separate nights, of course).

Tank tops and boxers are cute and all but sometimes a nightie just kicks it up a notch. I promise you, you'll feel a bit more summery, more sexy.

I'll throw in a couple of nightie reviews soon!

www.myskins.com -- love the concept

Luckily, I can usually find nude color panties that match my, well, nudeness. I'm pretty pale so sometimes I need a shade of nude that doesn't exist. Well, www.myskins.com is the place to go. I haven't ordered my pair of panties yet but I will.

I've mentioned before that nude is the color under white clothing NOT white underwear. I can deal with VPL but I think white under white is way way way tackier than VPL.

Check out www.myskins.com - 20 different "nude" shades . They're microfiber probably like CK's or Commandos. Thong, boyshorts, and briefs. Also, three bra styles, plunge (sexy), t-shirt, and convertible.

Good luck this summer, ladies! It is the 2nd day of summer, enjoy it!

Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers...

Even without their big celebrity following in Europe and the US, Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers are quite fabulous. I'm excited to see this brand because I get many complaints about "no sexy bras" for my fantastic F cups with small rib cages and my awesome A cups, "what about us?" Well, it seems like SP and NK has filled that gap with sexy, flirty, and pretty bras for many, many cups.

Now, when you visit their website, it will be one stop shopping. To match your new sexy bra, get some knickers (panties for us Americans), nighties, and boxers for you man too! Check out the Milo women's boxers, lovelovelove.

Let me tell you the Brits really know how to do lingerie. I can't wait to get my first SP and NK, bra, knicker, thong, pretty the whole collection. If it's true, not only are they sexy, they're comfortable and more affordable than some of your other high end designer lingerie. I've own some expensive collector lingerie (with handwritten tags) and they're not that comfortable! So, Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers, let's do this!

FYI, the blue bra set is called the NANCY set. But ignore the skinny chick under the bra and panty set, according to their website, the panties go up to extra large, and the bras to 36DD.

More shapewear for men, this time from Saks Fifth Avenue

A popular Australian brand called Equmen (super popular in the UK) will be launching this very soon in Saks stores in the US, shapewear shirts to improve "posture", yeah, okay, that's why women wear Spanx.

Shapewear for men, it's about time...

I think we have touched on the Spanx for men thing before. But it's come to fruition from the brand 2xist. They're making control top briefs for men all over the world. So, no need to suck in those beer bellies. Feel the grip boys! The tables have turned. Why should women be the only ones suffering from shapewear and self-esteem issues?

Diet and exercise are my preferred choices of shapewear but sometimes we need help, ladies and gentlemen.

It's summertime, kinda...a reminder for all the ladies!

Well, Memorial Day is over. But it also means the unofficial start of summer has started! Woo-hoo!

Good news - BBQs, the beach, more sunlight, convertible tops down, potato salad galore!

Bad news - what to wear? especially under those all white pants or tops, strappy or strapless tops, sheer things Lady K loves, and funky designer shirts with one sleeve, a crooked neckline, no back, no front, you get my drift, ladies?

So, get your hot and sexy summer outfits together but PLEASE REMEMBER to also buy, borrow, or look in your closet before you wear your outfit. While you have the convertible top down, make sure you have the right convertible bra on.

So, as you buy or think of buying that sheer very white and strappy dress, THINK about your undergarments too. Don't be surprised if you can't find a bra in an hour that works for your dress. You need time, so start now.

If you choose to go braless (Lady K and on hiatus Lady E like this), then make sure you have things to keep your goods out of public eye...unless you want that! A stash of double sided tape like Hollywood Tape or toupee tape (if it can hold hair down it can hold a blouse) is very helpful for low cut dresses and tops. Don't flash someone at a wedding or church!

Another must have, breast/nipple covers, it may be hot outside but that means there'll be a lot of COLD a/c inside! Get them. If you can't find them at your local department store or lingerie boutique, then check out a website I found called. www.iwearnipplecovers.com -- it is what it is.

For my white wearers, nude, nude, nude, or light brown or pink underneath your clothing. Don't be caught with black panties or a red bra under crisp white linen. Tacky!

It's summertime, be sexy and be prepared!

Chocolate Box from Miss Lala...

I was able to see in person this collection from UK's Miss Lala Presents...at Faire Frou Frou. The name alone says it all...hot pink, a heart on your buttocks, retrochicness, what else can a girl want?

Follow LL on Twitter @thelingerielady

LL has succumbed to Twitter. It's fun. It's harmless (I think). I'll be able to dish quick lingerie tidbits. LL's ADHD has unfortunately kicked into gear again, so long blogs wear me out. I'll still try to blog when something HOT comes along or something NEW comes out.

Ask your lingerie questions! If I can't answer them right away, no worries, I have a handful of lingerie ladies willing to help me out. Don't be shy, ask (guys can too).

Follow LL @thelingerielady on Twitter.

Happy job hunting to those unemployed!!!

XOXO

Only Hearts Lingerie.

Lady K here has been unemployed and losing her mind for the last couple months. Sorry for not writing. But I was able to check out some awesome lingerie this Memorial Day weekend at ONLY HEARTS in Santa Monica. I've been there before but this time I actually really looked at the merchandise. I loved everything. Whether it was Only Hearts products or another brand, the lingerie was simply sexycute. Check out the store if you're in SanMo, CA.

We're Back!!! Again!!!!

Hi folks,

The ladies have been lethargic. Lady E has left the building for greener pastures. Lady K, that's me, has been in Asia for a couple months. Now I'm looking for a job, nice timing, huh? Sometimes you have to leave it all to miss it. And I miss the blog!!! I will try to post a couple times a month, at least. There's been many, many, interesting things going on in the world of lingerie. Let me catch up and review, then bring it to you! I still have many lingerie lady friends so I will get the scoop.

As with everything, like life, blogs evolve. Welcome back, lingerie lovers!
