Merry Christmas, everyone!
Every now and then Ophelia Fancy launches a special limited edition line, and we’ve loved every single one of them here on The Lingerie Post…
This time it’s a Christmas-themed limited edition, and even though we missed it when it launched there’s still a couple knickers & pasties available on the OF-site!
Designers Stevi & Emma wanted to add: “We would like to thank the garage studios team for their amazing photography and letting us trash their beautiful new studio, go check them out…“
American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. owns the brand “aerie”. The American Eagle brand targets the 15 to 25 year old female. The aerie brand offers Dormwear® and intimates collections with 114 standalone stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at www.aerie.com. To date, I haven’t found anything terribly distinctive at aerie. It often looks like some vague cross between Victoria Secret’s Pink collection and Gap Body. This winter, the Fairisle line caught my eye. I can imagine a fabulous lodge vacation, being snowed in, and whipping out this cute set.
Triumph is offering the “Velvet Passion” as their special holiday kit this year. Velvet Passion comes in red or black. There is a camisole with lace bodice and velvet cups. There is a bra, knickers, and possibly two types of garters. I think these pieces are aimed at the male shopper. They are “classics” and easy choices when you stumble into a store on Bond street looking for something to give your significant other. Don’t get me wrong, Velvet Passion is beautifully made and very pretty along with being tailor made for gift giving. Find the kit at Flirty or Dirty UK for £35.95.
Velvet Passion as envisioned by Triumph with plenty of holiday candles to set the mood.
I have always thought the traditional Santa lingerie suit in red and white looks fabulous on any woman. Mostly I think it is because of the combination of colours and faux fur fabric. Coupled with a sexy pair of heels and you will find the season becomes very festive indeed. And to be honest, if you own one of these Santa suits, it is fun to dress up even if there is no one to see it.
So, I decided to have a peek and see how many ways lingerie companies can make a Santa suit. And what I found was there are hundreds of designs. Keep in mind that the suit does not have to be focused on the red and white outfit-clad jolly character alone but also on the elves who wear green and red as well as the snow fairies who come wintrily attired in glittering white and silver. As you now see, there are endless possibilities to creating a magical evening during this holiday season.
I think I found the largest collection on a site called ODgirl. I have never seen so many Santa, Elf and Snow Queen sets as I saw there. Sweet little bows, lace up bodices, black belts with square buckles, gold satin bow gloves, pretty dresses trimmed in marabou, candy cane chokers, sexy red garters, plain white snowman dresses with big black buttons adorning the front, Jingle Bell fishnet stockings, v-necked and hooded dresses, triangle bikini tops donned with ruffled miniskirts, red plaid jumpers, long robes, old fashioned capes, and a cute set with reindeer antlers.
The other thing that amazed me was how fast the inventory sells out. In both regular and plus sizes, if you decide to wear one of these season-conscious, merry, sexy outfits, you better start looking to avoid the last minute rush!
