Diva Dish - March Edition

Time for the March edition of the Lingerie Diva Dish! This month's roundup of links talks about the top 10 breast myths, what men really think about lingerie and how French women view lingerie differently than American women. Read on!

Net-a-Porter's latest online magazine includes the 10 Lingerie Commandments (scroll to page 12 to see it).

One The Butterfly Collection Blog, they're pondering whether big boobs really do equal more body confidence.
Are bigger boobs really better?

In this article from FabFoundations.com, we read about one French corset brand thinks that perhaps Americans focus on sex when picking out lingerie, while Europeans focus on romance.

And Daniel from Directory Sexy guest blogs for Fashion Cherry and tells us about lingerie from the man's perspective.
What's he really thinking when he see this?

They're debunking breast myths on RealSelf.com, like is the average cup size really a C? And do you wear the same size for most of your life?

And did you know that you can recycle your bras? It's true, and it's a good cause!

Steal Her Style - Sofia Vergara in Esquire

Sofia Vergara is known for being a sexy, fiery Latina woman both on and off screen, and her latest photo shoot with Esquire magazine did little to dispute that reputation.

Vergara is featured in several sexy lingerie outfits, but my favorite by far is the black bustier she wore for the cover. With a sheer, lacy pattern accented with bold lines and hook and eye front clasps, this piece is both classic and modern, and undeniably sexy.


This piece is also a great candidate for Steal Her Style because we have so many great bustiers and corsets! Take a look at a few pieces I found that are similar to Sofia's...




So which piece do you like best? One thing I'm sure of, no matter which you choose, wearing one will make you feel as sexy as Sofia looks (Spanish accent optional)!

Romantic Lingerie For Springtime In Paris

Really, is there any setting that's more beautiful and romantic than Paris in springtime? With the gorgeous scenery, luscious food and overflowing fine wine and champagne, it seems that it would be hard to NOT feel amorous while you're there.

I put together a little photo gallery that combines some of my favorite photos of Paris in Spring with lingerie pieces that I think are perfectly suited for a romantic trip to France. Take a look...






Makes you want to dig our your passport and book a trip right now, doesn't it? Or, at the very least, slip into something elegant and open the champagne. To quote one of my favorite style icons, Audrey Hepburn, "Paris is always a good idea."

Lingerie Trend - Eye Masks

Blindfolds have long been a part of lingerie, but lately we've been seeing them give way to a new trend - eye masks. What's the difference, you ask? Well, eye masks tend to be incorporated into the style of the lingerie set. They also are made of fabrics that are see through, such as lace or mesh.


I have to admit, this is one of my favorite new lingerie trends! It’s an exotic and slightly mysterious accessory that has just a hint of fetishism. It could easily become part of a sexy striptease, don’t you think?


They’re also good for women who want to try blindfolds but are a bit hesitant. A see-through lace eye mask is a nice way to transition into it. Eye masks also have the advantage of allowing you to see while you wear it, so you can do more than just lay there with it on.


What do you think, divas? Does this latest lingerie trend appeal to you? Or do you prefer good ‘ol blindfolds?

Lingerie Trend - Bright & Bold Colors

While there will always be room in every diva's lingerie drawer for basic black, white and nude underwear, we love the latest trend that we're seeing in lingerie - the rise of bright, bold, beautiful colors. We’re seeing pops of colors (and sometimes unexpected color combinations) in lingerie sets from multiple brands.

There are no wallflowers among these sets, all which come in hues that simply clamor for attention. Whether you prefer neon tones or vivid primaries, each of these sets are sure to stand out among a sea of "traditional" lingerie colors.







So add some color to your (lingerie) life by saying bye bye basic, hello bright! Which vibrant color do you most want to incorporate into your lingerie collection?

Steal Her Style - Madonna In Agent Provocateur

Madonna is one celebrity who doesn't let her age (she's 53) dictate her style. She's long made lingerie a part of her look, whether it be for concerts, photo shoots or promotional images.

The cover image for her latest album, "Girl Gone Wild," is the newest addition to the list. She's wearing the Raphaelle bra from high-end brand Agent Provocateur, which retails for a whopping $250!

If you love Madonna's look but don't have her bank account (and really, who does?), not to worry! Lingerie Diva has several inexpensive options for you. In fact, each set we're featuring sells for less than $50, which means you could buy all three sets for less than the price of the Raphaelle - or a Madonna concert ticket.

Here is the "A Big Naughty" bra set from Dreamgirl, which features a triple shoulder strap, bow detail and comes with matching thong and garter belt. It retails for $43.89.

The "Caged Heat" bra set, also from Dreamgirl, is a bit kinkier. It's made out of microfiber and spandex, with the appearance of vinyl. It comes with a fetish-worthy lattice strap garter belt and matching thong. This set retails for $37.89.

This lace bra set from Shirley of Hollywood shows off more than the other versions with its strappy, open cup design. It retails for $23.90

And there you have it, Material Girl style at Lingerie Diva prices! Visit our website to see more of our sexy bra sets!

Leg Avenue Burlesque Collection

One of the best things about dressing up in lingerie is that it can make you feel like a different person. No matter what style it is, there's just something about slippy on something naughty or sexy or sensual that can transform us in the bedroom.

I think one of the reasons that I am so in love with Leg Avenue Burlesque collection (besides the pieces being just show-stoppingly gorgeous) is that it makes it easier for you to see yourself as someone else. They're theatrical and dramatic dress up pieces, worthy of a special occasion.



With the Burlesque collection, it's so easy to get taken in by the fantasy. Once you put your lingerie set on, it's hard to imagine yourself as anything other than the sexiest, raciest, most intriguing burlesque performer.



Burlesque is all about the art of the tease; it's not about how quickly you can take your lingerie off, it's about how long you can draw out the dance. And when you're wearing pieces as fabulous as these, wouldn't you want to keep them on a little longer anyway?
