Sexy & Stylish Glamour In New Lingerie Pieces From Baci

We were excited when we first announced the addition of Baci Lingerie to LingerieDiva.com. The line is known for offering high-end "European chic" look at very affordable prices, and we couldn't wait to bring it to you, our customers. Now we are just as excited to debut the newest pieces from Baci lingerie!

The new collection is similar to the first in that it's super sexy, feminine and glamorous. But while the first collection we featured was a blast of bright and bold colors (purple, fuchsia, orange, etc.) this second collection is more muted. Lots of black, white, nude and grey, with bits of dark pink and red intermingled.

Black Dotted Mesh Chemise, Gray Flower Lace Bra Set, White Lace Bra Set

We thought the first Baci collection on the site had a very "Miami nightlife" feel to it, and if we had to make a similar comparison for the new pieces it would be "New York glamour". 

But what this collection doesn't have in color, it does make up for in patterns. Polka dots and pretty, romantic florals make an appearance, as well as a bit of animal print. Baci continues to focus on texture, with lots of lace and dotted mesh, both of which had a prominent role in the first collection Lingerie Diva added.


One other difference: The first set was exclusively "One Size Fits All" while the new set has pieces that come in small/medium and medium/large sizes.

Head over to the Lingerie Diva website to see the our entire selection of Baci lingerie now!

What The Celebrities Will Be Wearing To The Oscars

The Oscars are this weekend and I, like millions of others, will be glued to my TV set long before they start. Because, as every woman knows, the red carpet fashion show that precedes the ceremony is just as important as the awards themselves.

And, OK, no, I don’t really know which designer or gown the nominees will be flaunting as they walk the red carpet. But I do know that it’s takes a certain amount of tools, if you will, to make sure everything looks great AND stays in place. Here are a few of the hidden items we expect the stars to be wearing on Oscar Sunday...

If you're wearing a gown that so gorgeously features your back, like Hilary Swank's gown at the 2005 Oscars, a regular bra is absolutely out of the question. Adhesive bras offer support and coverage AND keep your couture look intact.

When wearing a dress that featuers a barely-there lace  neckline, such as Mila Kunis wore in 2011, nipple covers are essential to prevent any nip slips on the red carpet.

Gwyneth Paltrow should have worn a pair of these breast lift adhesives instead of going au naturel at the 2002 Oscars. Fashion critics deemed her outfit a failure, largely in part because of her saggy look up top.

A few other things likely to be worn this Sunday: fashion tape, peel and stick pushup cups and maybe even a few curve-creating Magical Panties for the actresses that need some help filling out their dresses.

And there you have it, just a few of the body enhancers you might see in a celebrity's arsenal of styling products and tools. Consider adding them to your "toolbox" next time you wear an outfit that doesn't allow for traditional undergarments (and check out this post, too).

Steal Her Style - Celebrities In Faux Tights

Ok, so that headline might be just a tad misleading. The tights these celebrities are wearing aren't fake, but they do give the illusion of something that's not there. It seems one of the biggest legwear trends to hit Hollywood is wearing pantyhose that look like there are garterbelts attached when, in fact, it's all one piece.

Here are young celebs Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez sporting the same pair of faux suspender tights...

And singer Rihanna and Paris Hilton were both recently spotted wearing similar looks...

Of all of the Steal Her Style posts we've done, this is probably one of the easiest, and cheapest, trends to copy! Lingerie Diva has several styles of faux tights (not just garters) available, ranging from $7.99 to $9.89.




What to do you think divas, are you a fan of the faux garters/stockings look? We can definitely see the appeal because it's easier than wearing real garters or stockings (you wouldn't have to worry about hooks staying attached or your stockings staying up all night). And it's kind of fun knowing that what you're wearing is not exactly as it appears. So we say this trend is definitely a do!

How To Throw A Panty Party

Looking for a new way to host a girls-only get together? Wanting an idea that has a bit more life to it than movie nights or wine nights? How about throwing a panty party?

Traditionally, a panty party is thrown for a bachelorette party, with every guest bring the bride-to-be a sexy pair of undies, but you can easily adapt it to work for any occasion, whether it be a much-need girls night or a Valentine's Day party for the single ladies!

Throwing this kind of shindig is pretty easy. Set a price limit  - around $20 or so- and have every girl bring a pair of panties or two to swap.If you're hosting a group where the guests all know each other, you can get their sizes beforehand and organize a Secret-Santa style swap (the only downside of this is that you will know who drew your name).

 Or you can everyone bring a pair of stretchy, one-size-fits-all panties and do a blind swap. If you do this, there are several fun ways you can swap. Draw names out of a hat (or out of a lingerie bag). Do a Yankee swap, where guests can steal panties from each other. Or have guests play a few rounds of party games, with the winner of each round picking out a panty (but they can only win once).

Add some fun to your panty party by encouraging guests to bring panties that are more fun than functional. The more outrageous the better, and you'll have fun squealing over the bejeweled, sequined, fur trimmed, light up panties guests bring.

Serve some Pink Panty Pulldowns as cocktails, make some panty-themed foods, like these thong cookies, and have a fabulous night talking and laughing with the girls (and comparing your sexy new underwear)!
