July is a little hot, and with the heat comes thoughts of keeping cool. But, if you’re like me, it can also lead to thoughts of heating things up, particularly when it comes to the sexy lingerie. After all, the best way to keep cool is wear less, right?
I got into lingerie pretty young, but I can’t always say that I’ve kept up my game. Seduced by the power of merry widows used by acts like Vanity 6 and on actresses like Joan Collins back in the 80’s, I’ve always loved the power of good underwear. The right bra can pull your breasts up from your hips to their rightful location and take off years and pounds. Plus, you just walk differently when you’re wearing good underwear. Throw a garter belt on underneath your favorite skirt one day and see what I’m talking about.
I’m also going to throw in here that I have a little obsession with burlesque performer Dita Von Teese. Talk about a Mother of Reinvention: born tiny blonde Heather Sweet, she created the entire identity of Dita from old Hollywood inspirations. Her signature black mane is a result of a reported fascination with 90’s actress Sherilyn Fenn from Twin Peaks. The woman lives in lingerie 24/7, so clearly she’s the right woman to create a lingerie line.
The line has just launched on Bare Necessities, which is personally where I go to grab my underthings (I can’t just pop into regular stores with a 34F bra size.) Here’s the good news: Diva Dita has given us lingerie that goes up to a 44 band and an E cup in bras, and panties that go up to a size 22. So, while I’m runneth one cup over when it comes to her lusty lovelies, those of you who can get in on this lingerie most certainly should.
In short, avoid the heat outside, crank up the A/C, and create a little body heat indoors. Let Dita show you the way….the Golden Land of Garters awaits you.
