Victoria’s Secret & Lingerie~

Tracy What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word lingerie?  If you said Victoria’s Secret you’re not alone.  I missed the show this year because I was trying to curb my sleep deprivation trend by getting to bed at a decent hour.  I heard that “The Biggest Loser” beat out the beautiful lingerie clad models by a whopping 2 million viewers.  The Biggest Loser had a colossal 10.3 million viewer while Victoria’s Secret only landed 8.3 million…only.  They say that not even a pleasantly plump Heidi Klum who walked the runway mere weeks after giving birth to her fourth child, couldn’t coax viewers to change the channel from the two-hour episode of NBC reality show. Heidi Klum

The Biggest Loser is packed full of great weight loss related information but I think it’s the heart felt stories that keep the viewers tuned in each week.  Considering that the majority of North America is overweight it doesn’t really surprise me.  But you have to remember that even lingerie models have body issues just like everyone else.  I think if next year they had plus size models as well as regular one they might actually have something.  I’d like to see women of all sizes confidently strut down the runway oozing sex appeal.  If you did tune in your certainly got your fair share of underwear!

Kylie Bisutti Victorias Secret ShowThis year the show also had a competition within it, Project Runway/America’s Top Model Search.  One young hottie would win her wings and become a Victoria’s Secret Angel and that would be Kylie Bisutti.  I have to admit that part doesn’t really appeal to me, I just want to see the fashion show with all the costumes, hair and make up.  If you missed it as I did here is a clip of the lingerie extravaganza.

It’s really quite the production!

There is not a woman out there who wouldn’t feel sexy in a pretty pair of panties, no matter what her size or shape may be.  But if you only have monster gonch in your pantie drawer you need to move them aside and make room for some sexy panties.  You will be glad you did even if it’s just for yourself.

Pantie talk~

Panties are thought to have originated in ancient times, when women wrapped long strips of fabric around themselves loincloth-style. Crotchless underwear was common in the 1800′s so that women were able to use the restroom without having to remove all of their skirts and undergarments.

After World War II, panties suddenly became decorative.  Women now had the option of buying patterned panties or panties made of interesting fabrics like nylon, lace and dacron.

It wasn’t until the 1960′s when panties became more fitted.  I am surprised that panties were even worn during this time !!  Women could chose between bikini, hip-hugger or traditional brief styles.

Thong panties didn’t become widely popular until the 1980′s.  I’m an 80′s girl!  Women in South America and exotic dancers had been wearing thongs for years but women weren’t able to buy the sexy garment until retailers like Victoria’s Secret and Frederick’s of Hollywood began manufacturing thongs, followed by g-strings.  (G-string is a very narrow string running between the buttocks in the shape of a T and thong being a V shaped fabric that has a little more fabric to it, but not much)  I know it sounds uncomfortable but you do get used to it, I promise!  Neither give you a panty line.

In the 1990′s, wearing exotic, erotic lingerie became publicly acceptable in America.  Sexy lingerie became increasingly popular as more and more women felt comfortable walking into stores like Frederick’s of Hollywood and Victoria’s Secret.

Today, women can choose from g-strings, thongs, crotchless panties, tanga shorts, boy shorts, bikinis… the choices are endless.  And we all have our favorites !!

Let’s Talk About Sex Baby! by Tracy

Do you remember that song?  “let’s talk about sex baby let’s talk about you and me“ I remember singing it while dancing with my girlfriends, back when it was sort of taboo to say ‘SEX’ out loud!  We were flirts and loved every moment of it!  We never meant anything by it we were just girls having fun!sexy-mag-cover

Sex sells!  It’s everywhere we go.  I am not talking about porn sex.  There is nothing sexy about watching porn to me.  I’d rather be doing it than watching someone else make that ridiculous face.

I am talking about sex appeal.  Admit it, you purchase some stuff because of sex and how it’s marketed.  Everyone wants to have sex appeal.  Some of us have just given up.  We don’t think we fit into the standard sex appeal image of having a certain body type, size or shape.  If you don’t think you have sex appeal you can definitely get it.  Changing your perception is a good start.

For instance I am writing this post completely naked, to see if I feel sexier than when I am in my uniform (yoga pants).  Ohhhh let me tell you I feel wayyyy sexier!  I just need the high heel slippers with the fluffy feathers on them! (soooo not me!!)  If your not comfortable naked then try putting on a sexy outfit or tune in to the show ‘How to Look Good Naked.‘  It’s a great example of when woman change their perception of themselves and eliminate bad habits of dressing down, with the end result being them comfortable in their own skin.Dove 'wendy'

One afternoon I was sitting on a deck with a girlfriend of mine, early evening, downtown.  As we sat there girls strutted by one after another.  It was hard not to notice.  Most of these girls were not the skinny model type.  These girls had curves and used them to their advantage.  Their hips swung and shoulders swayed with such confidence!  Everyone of them oozed sex appeal and knew it!  These girls had it go-in on!  I think it’s how you feel about yourself and what your wearing underneath.  If your wearing monster gonch you feel like your wearing monster gonch.  Slip on a black satin pair of panties with a matching bra and voila!  Sex appeal!  I just spent $160.00 on lingerie and was saving it for some reason.  Ya I know, for what?  I finally tore into the bag and started wearing them and instantly felt sexier.  It’s like you have a secret  when you wear pretty lingerie.  Your eyes don’t lie when you feel sexy.  Sultry Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren is famous for her sex appeal and sultry eyes.  And she was(IS I stand corrected) a curvaceous woman still at 74!

I went to a ‘passion party’  with a girlfriend one night, a first for me if you can believe it!  I can say honestly I have never laughed so hard before at what they had just sitting out on the table for everyone to touch!  At first glance I would have thought it was a table full of baby toys…until I got closer.  I picked up one item and when the voluptuous sales girl told me what it was for I actually dropped it and then almost pee-d my pants laughing with my friend.  Wait for it….“A WHAT PLUG? I exclaimed?”  I felt like a school girl laughing hysterically with my friend while the sales girl talked so candidly about how to use it !!!  My face went red at even the thought that this girl thought I WANTED the explanation!  She had done it a thousand times before so it was like she was selling Tupperware.  I couldn’t get past the fact that these women were all bonding and story telling of what they tried or had and what were their favorite items.  I felt at times like I was in a Twilight Zone Movie or I was being PUNKED.  I didn’t know what half the stuff was for!  My mouth dropped open more than once.  (for sure Bonnie will comment on this but don’t believe her!)  I thought it was extremely educational but it got creepy for me when they had cherry nipple cream/lip-balm for everyone to try in the bathroom.  I drew the line there. Most of the woman in the room made a purchase, yes I did too.  Peer pressure forced me to buy the ‘cherry chapstick’  which I threw out because it burnt my kisser!  Yikes that was a close one!  I purchased another item ‘behind closed doors’ and it will stay that way, but in hind sight I wish I had bucked up!  Elastic Boundaries ladies, just go with the flow!
