2017 – Be naughty, once or twice a week.
ARTICLE BY MAR, International Coolhunter.
Some of us will need to rethink our level of physical interaction. Because research says that having sex once or twice a week -sorry folks: not more- boosts immunity considerably and helps ward off colds. Before running to your nearest supply of one-night-stands, though, we are warned that immunity will boost with sex encounters within happy and long relationships. So yeah, you might have to work harder than that. Either way, it’s time to go out and play: a new -and possibly unexpected?- resolution for 2017. Also, please, MANDATORY READING HERE (who would have said that wiki held the key to pleasure world, HUH?!).
Last year, meaning a month ago, I realised that Christmas is a sexual season. And here I thought it was about religious traditions, family, presents, and whatnot. Well, I’m definitely not going to complain: -regular- lingerie stores were packed with loads of fun, playful, sexy and cool garments. And when I say regular lingerie stores, that’s positive, because it means quality, fit and designs of such playful things is much better than in adult stores, where sexy will turn into trashy very fast.
And because Christmas happens every year, now -sales, anyone?- is a good time to stock on your cheeky and red undergarments. Or you can pretend it’s still Christmas and pull off a classic roleplay – I doubt anyone will say no to that.
Ho ho ho.
This year I was looking for a Santa skirt, inspired by Vilde’s Christmas outfit (SKAM). Well, all I found were euphemistically adult costumes and one nun-variation. Since I wasn’t interested in either, I -logically, I know- ended up getting an underwear set version of Santa, by French lingerie brand UNDIZ. I love that it is cheeky, without it being overtly sexual.
Take a bow
There were quite a few red panties out there, with bows on the bottom side. Some with less fabric than others. Either way, they are indeed cheak-y and surprisingly very flattering. Sure, you might not be able to wear some of them under your regular pants, but honestly, who cares. Fun time’s assured, whether it’s with someone there might be action with, fooling around at home by yourself or throwing a lingerie party with your friends.
‘Tis the season of the flesh
Women’secret had quite a few panties showing as much flesh as possible. Mainly at the back or even the bottom. And basically, what wasn’t showing, was see-through (not pictured here).
The panties at the top left are completely open at the back (I guess the company didn’t post a photo, since it would mainly show a bare ass), and at the bottom right, the ‘special’ panties, as women’secret calls them, are open at the bottom -not at the back-. In fact, the brand has currently several panties with an opening at the bottom.
At the top right and bottom left, ‘plain old’ panties showing bootie flesh: a thong and a brasilian brief.
Not all the companies embraced Christmas red. Spanish Oysho flooded its stores with burgundy lace instead, as its take on Christmas lingerie. Theirs was a more elegant and sober view of the intimate season.
Garters and stockings
OK, so technically I haven’t really seen many stockings out there, during Christmas season. But garter belts were ubiquitous in both festive red, classic black, and also other less traditional hues. Garter belts are not always available in regular stores, so if you want one, get it now. If you don’t like garter belts / want a more practical approach, you can opt for getting panties that have the 4 straps and clips; unless the panties fall down, one less thing to worry about.
Spanish lingerie brand women’secret had a vibrant / lighter red Xmas collection, with a large variety of items -all sorts of bottoms, bodies, bras and garter-, and was possibly the most daring one of all.
Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi had a hit TV campaign portraying beautiful and slightly darker red bras and panties, which sold out really fast; this was the highest quality collection I’ve seen this year -I told a friend the pieces reminded me of works of art, with much detail, taste and quality-. To be fair, I should say that I haven’t covered ETAM in this article, which is also a brand that has beautiful lace lingerie which is good quality.
UNDIZ had perhaps the most playful collection, without being as explicitly daring as women’secret.
And because I can’t leave this article without stockings for your new garter belts or panties, here are a few options. I was looking for vintage-style stockings -that is, without adhesive-, since they have something alluring and don’t cut into the thigh flesh; but don’t forget that you need to wear them with a garter. The two stockings at the bottom are plain, while the ones at the top have a back seam and heel. Pick a pair with a larger denier count if you know that you will snag them easily or want stockings that last a bit more. The stockings pictured range from 10 denier (Gipsy, bottom right), to 15 denier (Jonathan Aston, top) and 20 denier (Trasparenze, bottom left).
Remember to be naughty – up to twice a week only.
EDIT 10 JANUARY:
The Italian lingerie brand that caused a frenzy with their TV add featuring Irina Shayk just restocked today their completely sold out TV set and other red matching undergarments, so before they are completely gone, I’m including them in this post. This might be your last chance to get your hands on this beautifully crafted works of art, and at a reduced price.
For those of you who don’t like underwire bras, Intimissimi’s spot bra (top right) isn’t underwired, even if it looks like it. Although both red bras look amazing on, in my opinion, the Simona bra, which hooks at the front, fits even better than the Manuela bra and its back is spectacular. By the way, all items included in the image above are the same red, in spite of showing different shades on the stock photos.
