Did you feel the Boobquake?

April 26, 2010

A Boobquakers in DCDid the earth move under your feet today? If you felt a tremor or two, it was probably just the boobquake – you know, when a bunch of scantily-dressed women strut around in protest. Why this boobquake? Because of Shiite cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi’s warning that, “Women who do not dress modestly . . . lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes.” Sorry we’re contributing to the world’s immodesty!

Watch the Washington Post’s video of the quake here.

Inspiration: Birds of a Feather

April 25, 2010

Love the section in the new Neiman Marcus catalog with swans and feathers. Check out some of the pics below. How are feathers so glamourous? Sensual and sexy for special occasions or as we like to think, the bedroom!

Passionate About Your Drawers?

April 25, 2010

Do you love, LOVE, LOVE your underwear? Would you not survive past Tuesday without a thong? Or throw a hissy if you had no more clean hipsters? Is there a brand that you are devoted to? If you feel as passionately about lingerie, underwear, and their relations as we do, then you need to take a five and vote in the 2010 Undies Awards. No, not the Emmy’s. THE UNDIES. Yup, you got it. Even underwear have their own awards (everyone likes a little recognition, yaknow?).

Get on the site and vote. And if you do feel super passionately about a brand, then feel free to tell us. We’d love to know what you love!

Plus-size Bra Commercial Too Much for TV?

April 24, 2010

If someone asked you to name a scandalous lingerie commercial, you would probably immediately think of Victoria’s Secret glamazon models strutting in their undies. At least we would. However another brand’s recent commercial is causing some drama in the network tv world. Fox and ABC have refused to air Lane Bryant’s commercial for Cacique lingerie, featuring plus-sized models in their skivvies.  The Lane Bryant blog claims that ABC axed commercial airtime during Dancing with the Stars, while FOX “demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of American Idol, but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy.” Pamela Anderson on Dancing with the Stars is practically in her underwear to begin with!

Sounds like some networks have their panties in a wad, if you will!

The Lane Bryant blog goes on to say:
“We knew the ads were sexy, but they are not salacious.  Our new commercials represent the sensuality of the curvy woman who has more to show the world than the typical waif-like lingerie model.  What we didn’t know was that the networks, which regularly run Victoria’s Secret and Playtex advertising on the very shows from which we’re restricted, would object to a different view of beauty.  If Victoria’s Secret and Playtex can run ads at any time during the 9pm to 10pm hour, why is Lane Bryant restricted only to the final 10 minutes?

While it’s no secret that Victoria’s Secret “The Nakeds” ads are prancing around on major networks leaving little to the imagination, steaming up t.v. screens and baring nearly everything but their souls, our sultry siren who shows sophisticated sass is somehow deemed inappropriate. The network exclaimed, she has “too much cleavage”  Gasp!

Does that make sense to you?  It doesn’t to us either.

Does this smack of a double standard?  Yep. It does to us, too.”

Lane Bryant, we agree. Just because you’re curvier doesn’t mean that you a) can’t feel sexy and b) have to hide your body. Way to take on the networks! Bravo!

Check out the controversial commercial here:

If you’re a bigger breasted lady, of any size, we probably have a bra to fit you here, in our shop or online. And if you want to strut around the store in your skivvies, we won’t censor you!
