Every woman has heard of the Little Black Dress (or LBD). It's one of the most-used and multi-use items a woman can have in her wardrobe. A good LBD is sexy and versatile. She can throw it on and just know she looks good. And she feels good in it.
Well, I'm also of the belief that every woman should also have a Little Black Teddy (LBT). If women can have outfits that instantly make them feel good, why not lingerie pieces too? Plus, the LBT is the quintessential lingerie piece. Every woman owns one, no matter what her taste in lingerie might be.
To show the variety of Little Black Teddies that Lingerie Diva offers, I've put together this photo gallery. Take a look at the different styles and options you have when it comes to choosing your LBT.
See what I mean? There's a LBT for every diva! Visit the Lingerie Diva site to see our entire collection of sexy teddies (in all colors)!
I think the blog title pretty much sums it up. There's just something about putting on an animal print lingerie piece that brings out your wild side - even the tamest divas feel a little more frisky when they're wearing leopard print (or zebra stripes or a snakeskin pattern).
I've collected just some of the animal print lingerie we have available for you - which one brings out your inner animal? Leopard? Cheetah? Zebra? Snake? All of the above? Welcome to the jungle indeed!
Even though summer has just officially started, here in the lingerie world we're already thinking about Christmas!
Take a look at this video from Coquette, which goes behind the scenes of the photo shoot for their 2011-12 Holiday Collection! Like what you see? Good, because you'll be seeing more of it at LingerieDiva.com this holiday season!

What do lingerie designers from around the world have in common? They all have unique visions of what lingerie history - and its future - look like.
Triumph Lingerie recently closed voting for its international annual Triumph Inspiration Award. According to Triumph’s website, the contest: “… challenges students from all over the world to use their talent, artistic vision and inspiration to conceptualize and design a unique lingerie showpiece for the year’s theme.”
This year’s theme was “125 Years of Celebrating Women” in honor of the company’s 125th anniversary. Lingerie lovers could vote online for their favorite design – the winner will be announced during Berlin Fashion Week next month and their design will be sold as a limited edition set.
Most of the pieces would definitely fall into the “lingerie couture” category, but there were some that did look like they could make the transition from catwalk to lingerie drawer. Overall, the entries featured a broad spectrum of looks and styles – from fun & funky to slinky and sexy to what the hell were they thinking? See what I mean below.
Italy - Revealing and Concealing
Bulgaria - Many Sided Individualism
Sweden - Circular Celebration
Japan - Crane Dance
Netherlands - Beautiful Damage
France - This Is Not An Icon
Belgium - Transformama
For a more detailed overview of the competition, read this post from Lingerie Talk. And check out this interview with model/jury member Lily Cole talking about the competition and designs.
**UPDATE** The winner has been announced! Click this link to see which design took home the grand prize (and breath a sigh of relief because it wasn't Belgium).
Today is officially the first day of summer! I love summer for so many reasons: being able to get away with wearing a scant amount of clothing, going to the pool and the beach, grilling outside with my friends, the longer days... and the steamy nights ;-)
In honor of today's summer solstice, I put together a few photo montages of some of the sexy things that I'll definitely be wearing this summer. Take a look - which things are on your summer list?
Now, these obviously aren't for everyday use but I think they would be so fun for so many occasions! A night of dancing at a club. To accessorize your Halloween costume. For a ladies night or bachelorette party. The list goes on and on.
Here's a video, courtesy of The Lingerie Journal, that shows Ashley C from "The Bad Girls Club" wearing a pair of Baci's feathered eyelashes and talking about how much she loves them. Look at them in action; you can't take your eyes off of them!
Have you seen that episode of "How I Met Your Mother" where Lily and the gang are trying to think of 50 reasons to have sex? They range from silly ("Because you dropped a Cheeto in his lap and he thought you were making a move") to sweet ("Because I love you").
I recently saw a rerun of that episode and it inspired to me a similar list: 50 Reasons To Wear Lingerie. I've been able to come up with the first 20-some reasons but I need your help to get the other 30! Leave a comment and tell me your reason to wear lingerie. If it's good I'll add it to the list! **UPDATE** Thanks to everyone who left a comment here on the blog and on the Lingerie Diva Facebook page - we have our 50 reasons, see them all below!
