Lingerie Diva Dish - June Edition

We're especially excited for this edition of the Diva Dish because it means June is coming to a close, which means the 4th of July is right around the corner! It's one of our favorite holidays, so we can't wait! Until then, settle in and catch up on a few lingerie headlines.

The steamiest book of the spring/summer, "50 Shades Of Grey", has (not surprisingly) inspired its own line of lingerie. If you can't wait for it, check out the options we give you in this post.

Holly from The Full Figured Chest says bed jackets are back in style, and we LOVE some of the pieces she features on her blog!
Will you be joining the bed jacket craze?

Ali Cudby, writing for The Lingerie Journal, says there's a new age of shapewear upon us. It's now as sexy and stylish and it is slimming.

It's not too often that you get the chance to read a lingerie review written by a man. Check out what Luis Parades has to say about the Saxx line of men's underwear.

Get the inside scoop on how men feel about a new under line.
Did you know there was a right and wrong way to store your bras? Linda The Bra Lady gives instructions on how to properly store bras to help them last longer.

And finally, here's an interesting guest post from The Lingerie Addict about why we should embrace Japanese lingerie.

Pretty In Pink - National Pink Day

Saturday is National Pink Day, and of course we had to celebrate it here on the blog! Pink is such a fun, glam and girly color - if you want to make something pretty, just make it pink!

And, as you can see, pink is a very sexy color too. We hope you enjoy these “mood boards” inspired by all things pink!

Sheers For Summer

When it comes to summer and the hot,sticky weather, there's really only one way you can go with your lingerie: sheer! Sheer fabrics lets your body breathe, allows the cool breeze to touch your skin. Plus, it doesn't hurt that sheer lingerie also lets your partner see what you've got ;-)

Here are just a few of my favorite sheer lingerie sets for this summer! Which one is your favorite?

Paisley Print Lingerie

Here’s a print that we haven’t seen in lingerie before: paisley. The top two sets are from Elegant Moments and the bottom one is from Espiral.




At first we weren’t sure how we felt about this print: While we liked the colors and the designs of the outfits, the paisley seemed a bit too busy for us. However, the more we ponder it, the more the paisley is growing on us! It’s definitely something to add to your drawer if you feel like your lingerie collection has gotten a bit stale.

What do you think, divas? Is paisley lingerie a hit or a miss?

Lingerie Trend - Nude Lingerie

It used to be that nude lingerie had one purpose: to be invisible. Nude lingerie was only seen in t-shirt bras made to wear under white shirts and utilitarian shapewear hidden under beautiful dresses. Even when worn under sheer pieces, nude lingerie was visible to the eye but not really seen. Its purpose has always been to blend in.

But it seems like that is changing. There’s been a shift in the attitude towards nude lingerie – now it’s being made to be seen. More brands, and Baci Lingerie in particular, are embracing its subtle sexiness and featuring nude lingerie sets in the collection. Take a look below.








I can't decide if this is one lingerie trend that's here to stay, because the color is so timeless, or if people will quickly get over the natural look of nude and go back to color. Thoughts?

Quotable Divas - Elle McPherson

We only carry a handfuls of pieces from Elle McPherson's lingerie collection, but I wish we carried more! Her pieces are so pretty and, as evidenced by the quote below, she really knows the meaning of lingerie.

Summer Lust List

The title of this post pretty much says it all: A list of the things we're lusting after this summer.

For lounging
Just looking at the soft aqua color of this babydoll makes us relax, and the sheer fabric is perfect for hot summer weather!

This cami set is great for those days when you just don't want to get out of bed. Or those days when you're out of bed, but definitely not putting on real clothes!

For the pool
Monokinis were a big swimwear trend last year, and we're happy to see that it's come back for this summer. This piece is a great update to the classic black swimsuit.

Is there anything that better shows off your summer tan than a white bikini? Plus, we're really digging the hoop accents on this one!

For date night
White and black is one of our favorite color combinations for lingerie, and we love the flirty little skirt in this lingerie set. Flirty skirt = naughty night ;-)

How great does the pop of the color from the contrasting details look on this bra set? Draws your eyes to exactly the right places...

For every day
This soft cup bra set is pretty enough for something special, but definitely comfortable enough to wear every day! No underwire means one less article of clothing sticking to your body in the summer heat.

On the beach, running errands, out to brunch or dinner... we would definitely wear this long tie-dye dress to any and all of these places!

Tell us, divas, what's on your summer lust list? Will you be adding any of these items to it?

Crazy About Coral Lingerie

I know it might seem as if I've been bombarding you with color trends recently, having just wrapped up our Passionate About Purple theme for May and writing about all the naughty neons we've been seeing earlier this week. So I apologize if the thought of yet another color post makes you cringe.

But bear with me! In a world where black and red make up what seems like 99% of the colors we see, it's so refreshing to see other colors get some attention. Especially when they're as pretty and as seasonally appropriate as this one. We're totally loving these coral sets from Dreamgirl's latest collection!



This particular coral shade is a great compromise between a pastel and a neon. It's a bright pop of color but it's not completely in your face. And it's brings something new to the mix for the summer color palette, which is typically dominated by hot pink, turquoise and yellow.



(These aren't from Dreamgirl, but we just couldn't leave them out!)

What do you think, divas? Are you as crazy about coral as we are? If so, click here to see the rest of our coral lingerie sets!

Tumblr Tuesday - 50 Shades Of Sexy

It's been awhile since we've had a Tumblr Tuesday post on the blog, where we feature some of our recent favorite pictures found on Tumblr. Has it been awhile since you visited the Lingerie Diva Tumblr? Well then, it's time to remedy that!

Doesn't this robe just make you want to swing your arms around wildly? Image via.

We are crazy about this Red Riding Hood-themed shoot from Kiss Me Deadly. Image via.

Grey isn't a common color in lingerie, but maybe it should be. Image via.

Speaking of grey, isn't this shot very "50 Shades Of Grey"? We think so. Image via.

Earlier this year we wrote about how bright and bold colors were one of the biggest lingerie trends for the Spring. Well, now neon has taken over as the color trend for the Summer! We've seen more hot colors popping up than ever before!

Neon Yellow Lingerie Sets - LingerieDiva.com

I don't know about you, but I am really digging this neon color trend revival. It's so fun and fresh - seems perfect for the summer, don't you think? Want to see even more neon looks? Visit our Naughty In Neon board on Pinterest!
