Lingerie Diva Dish - May Edition

It's the last day of May and the start of the summer season! I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to lots of time by the pool, cook outs and, of course, wearing as little clothing as possible to beat the heat ;-) Enjoy our roundup for the month...

If you think are cup sizes are the same, think again! The Butterfly Collection blog has this great post that explains bra volume, sister sizing and more.

You've heard of the Little Black Dress, and we've even written about the Little Black Teddy. And now, Linda The Bra Lady has ways for you to style the Little Black Swimsuit.

A black bikini doesn't have to be boring.

For you bustier, curvier gals that have a hard time finding lingerie that fits, Holly from The Fully Figured Chest has a great beginner's guide on made-to-measure lingerie.

Still haven't come to see the light when it comes to shapewear? Here's a great post on just how much shapeware can help you! (For additional shapwear reading, check out our post about buying shapewear for cocktail dresses and our Squeem shapewear review.)

Shape it up with shapewear!

And finally, a lot of women carry things in their bras and now one company has decided to capitalize on it. The JoeyBra has side pockets big enough to hold you phone, credit card or iPod.

Happy last day of May, divas!

Passionate About Purple, Part 3

We’re sad to see our Passionate About Purple month coming to an end. It’s been an absolute pleasure to feature some much lingerie in my all-time favorite color! It’s also been a lot of fun to expose our fans to a color that many hadn’t considered for lingerie before. If you still haven’t added some purple to your lingerie drawer, what are you waiting for?!

Bikinis & Martinis

Memorial Day is this weekend, which means so is the start of swimsuit season! And today our blog post features some of our sexiest swimsuits and one very important swimwear accessory (although probably not the one you're thinking of).

There are lots of accessories you can coordinate with your swimsuit: cover up, sarong, floppy hats, sunglasses, sandals, body jewelry, even your beach towel! But you want to know what I think is one of the most fun things to pair with your bikini? A matching martini! ;-)

Take a look at the sexy bikini and martini pairings I've come up with. Don't see something that goes with your favorite drink? Then visit our website to see all ouf our sexy swimsuits!

Pretty In Polka Dots, Part 2

That's right, another blog post featuring polka dot lingerie (see the first one here). We just had so many great sets to feature that we couldn't fit them all in one post - well, not unless we wanted to make it one really long post, and that's just not our style.

Lingerie Looks We Love

So often, as I'm browsing pages and pages of items on LingerieDiva.com and collecting pictures for posts, I come across lingerie pieces or sets that I love but have no place for. They don't fit into whatever theme or trend I'm writing about, and maybe they never will.

It seems a shame to keep these pieces from you just because of that, so I'm starting a new feature on the blog called "Looks We Love". It will be a semi-regular piece (meaning I'll write one whenever I've collected enough looks) that really has no rhyme or reason other than to show you some great lingerie that you might be missing!

The bright teal color in this lace and mesh chemise is one of my favorites for summer!

This white soft cup bra set is great, but honestly, what I love most about this picture is the styling. Wouldn't this shot be perfect for a bridal boudoir photoshoot?

Another great color for summer. Can you imagine how good this coral lace bra set would look with a tan?

Pink lace and ruffles; it doesn't get much girlier than this underwire garter slip, does it?

I love the way the white trim contrasts with the black lace on this kimono robe. And it comes with a matching bra set too!

The "50 Shades Of Grey" Effect

"Suddenly he grabs me, tipping me across his lap. With one smooth movement, he angles his body so my torso is resting on the bed beside him. He throws his right leg over both mine and plants his left forearm on the small of my back, holding me down so I cannot move … He places his hand on my naked behind, softly fondling me, stroking around and around with his flat palm. And then his hand is no longer there …"
If you haven't heard of "50 Shades Of Grey" you are missing out! This sexy book, the first in the "50 Shades" trilogy is a New York Times #1 best seller, in large part due to its very explicit and steamy love scenes (the above excerpt is just a brief taste of what's in the books)!

Not only are these books flying off the shelves, they're also inspiring many people to explore a new side of their sexuality. One of the main characters is very into the dominant/submissive fetish lifestyle and loves using things like riding crops, handcuffs and paddles during sex. As part of the "50 Shades Of Grey effect", these items have seen an huge increase in sales and demand, as more and more readers are exposed to and intrigued by this sexual experience.


Want to experience it for yourself? LingerieDiva.com has several fun items that can help you introduce a little dom/sub fetishism into your bedroom!








Want to see more? Then check out our leather lingerie and vinyl lingerie sections, which have a variety of fetish and fetish-inspired outfit and accessory options! Or visit our Pinterest board, "50 Shades Of Sexy"!

May Flowers - Floral Print Lingerie

Today we're giving some love to floral prints. Although we have a TON of lingerie pieces that have floral  lace or mesh floral fabric, there aren't that many actual floral print lingerie sets. We're not sure why this is, but we think it's time these fabulous florals get some attention!




If your lingerie drawer needs some freshening up, any one of these floral print pieces will do the trick! They're fun and happy and a great look for summer.




Tell us, divas, do you wish there was more floral print in lingerie?

Passionate About Purple, Part 2

This is the second post dedicated to our lingerie color of the month: purple. I love the way purple can be both a rich and vibrant hue, sometimes at the same time. It’s an intense and somewhat mysterious color. More light-hearted than black, more unique than red, but just as sexy as both!

On The Fringe

Historically, fringe in lingerie has been associated with swinging boobie tassels or a flapper-like garter skirt. That is, until last year, when Made By Niki debuted its "String" line and took the lingerie world by storm. The collection instantly sold out and wait lists were made.


These pieces showed that fringe was no longer just a lingerie accent. Rather, it could become the lingerie itself, and in a most beautiful way. It's no surprise that other brands and designers soon followed suit, as we've been seeing more and more fringe pop up in lines.

Dreamgirl Fringe Benfits Teddy in Red/Black & Pink/White

About her collection, Made by Niki founder Niki McMorrough has said: "The greatest thing about the high fashion String collection is the sensual nature of the fabric, which creates a tingling sensation when worn against bare flesh. I love how the collection has such a physically aphrodisiac effect on the wearer whilst looking fabulous at the same time."

After reading her thoughts and seeing these pictures, can't you just imagine how delightfully ticklish and tingly these fringe pieces would feel against your skin?

Pretty In Polka Dots

While gathering images for today's post, I couldn't help but sing that oldies song to myself: "She wore an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka dot bikini..." Although, it this case it's more like polka dot bra sets, babydolls and chemises!

I like polka dots on lingerie because they're fun and they add an element of fun to your bedroom outfits. It's a somewhat unexpected pattern (florals and animal print being far more popular and common) but I think polka dots are the perfect thing for a woman who wants her lingerie to be sweet and sassy and sexy all at the same time!
