A Find: Lacy Lingerie
February 22, 2006
This year, lingerie is about being demure but still sizzling. What better way to say it with delicate lace? We found this Huit collection on Figleaves.com, with semi-sheer, intricate black lace over nude lining harks back to this seasonâ€™s Dior collection. The wide satin ribbons on the bra are a fun touch to contrast with the structured look of the lace. The matching be-ribboned underwear is pretty and feminine.
The big trend in this yearâ€™s lingerie is the slip. I canâ€™t remember the last time I needed to wear one under a dress, but the slip as lingerie is so classy, so retro, and very Elizabeth Taylor steaming onscreen in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. This Point D’esprit chemise combines that alluring classic slip style with touches of lace and velvet. Get the matching thong to complete the come hither ensemble. The best thing about the slip is that every figure looks great in one. They don’t have to form fitting, most come in a variety of sizes, and the innocent sex appeal beats a teddy any day. The Kahlua chemise is a great find from figleaves.com.
