Don't hide in the shadows because some can't handle your light.-Ara
Some light work, spiritual work and the journey manifests itself in different ways. Sensuality and sacred are siblings and not distant cousins. And sometimes we forget that (well religious dogma, patriarchy, misogyny erases things). However, this beautiful mustard teddy reminds me of the Orisa Oshun. And honestly, I was tired of my collection of lingerie being just black, red, and wine/merlot. Who said seduction can't come in the form of the brilliance of the sun.
This teddy comes from, yep you guessed it, Fashion Nova. This comes in a spectrum of colors for every mood or vibe.
Material and Construction
This teddy is soft and feels like a hug or embrace after a long day.
90 % Polyester/10% Spandex
Mesh and lace
You have stretchable lace that cover the cups and the core/center down to the brief. It does have an underwire and adjustable straps. The rest of the teddy is made of a soft, breathable mesh and the brief of the teddy is a classic brief (giving coverage over the booty and the belly). The brief also snaps between thighs.
This is playful and delightful. Extremely comfortable (the mesh, my Lordt). It feels like a long over due embrace that you do not want to release. When I step into it and pull the straps on my shoulders, I feel very coquettish. As if pleasure and playful are chasing each other gleefully. Its that flirty side of sensuality like a an alluring giggle of an ingenue. Definitely glad I added to to my collection.
Somebody to Love Lace Teddy
Ever though about journeying into the realm of submission, BDSM, some 50 shades of gray shit, but just aren't ready to engage the cat o' nine tales or a long handled whip? Maybe you want to just look the part minus the leather and latex. Try the Dark Angel Teddy from Fashion Nova. I made this purchase and do not regret it.
Fashion Nova-Yes, ma'am. Yes sir. That is what I said. Believe it or not, Fashion Nova has numerous pieces of lingerie that you may have seen on other sites or online boutique, but the prices are great.
This bad boy retails at 19.99 (and you now Fashion Nova always had sale). Given the price, we are not talking some silk imported from Japan or hand stitched, embroider garment, it is still a good deal. The size range is from xs-3x (20).
Material and Construction
This teddy is constructed of a semi-sheer, stretchable material allowing your skin to breath. The cups are molded (underwire) with adjustable straps. Accentuating curves of the body and slimming the waist, ribbons create a voluptuous silhouette that is flattering on any body. This lovely piece has a bikini. brief cut with a snap between the legs and also garters to connect to stocking or to let them hang.
I was surprise that I slept as peacefully as I did it. I was concerned of the straps not chaffing my shoulders or the cups being uncomfortable, nope. I was knocked out and had some great sleep.
Dark Angel Teddy
The infamous “You Up?” text. Sometimes you have been waiting for this sign since you last saw your boo or this was just the surprise you need. But then you get hit with that follow up message: “I am on my way” or “Be there in 10.”
Or maybe you just want wear something for you. If I need a pick me up, I will put on something and prance around in it all day. Yes, rocking lingerie is a part of a self care ritual and I love lace and to check myself out in the mirror for extended periods of time.
This little set is just what you need for an anticipated and unexpected rendezvous or when you feel the need to remind yourself how tempting you are.
This is a sultry set for someone who needs something simple and sexy or that enjoys matching sets (beyond bra and panties). This crop top and Brazilian panties is made out of a stretchable, scalloped patterned lace and it comes in this vibrant red.
The top is the off the shoulder with crop sleeves. Although this is size queen (on sides fits most plus size), however my criticisms is that the sleeves are not as stretchable as the top. In other words, the sleeves were little tight. Since there isn’t an underwire or cup, there is little support if you prefer the push up effect.
These are so comfortable. Period. These are the Brazilian/boy short cut that sit at the lower waist. These type of panties are flattering on all booties; the exposure of just enough cheeks makes you stop in the mirror and check yourself out.
This is pretty comfortable ( with the exception of the sleeves being a little tight) it is pretty nice. I honestly love the way the lace feels against the skin. Lingerie sets like these are just convenient and nice to own. There are times you do not feel like doing to an entire production of looking like a the goddess that you are; sets like the Rose and Thorn do all the work for you. The red and lace are key components to bringing the allure of a fantasy to a reality.

Sigh. I did not think after the first collaboration with amazing fashion blogger, Gabi Fresh and Playful Promises could come get any better. Welp, I was wrong. This second installment of this collection is flirty, sensual, fun and just an incredible collection for curvy women. From this collection I grabbed the Belle set which features a simple, classic cami and these delicate, ornate knickers. I purchased the set in black, but it also comes in a jewel tone pink color.
The cami is made out of satin and offers a draper neckline. If you prefer support, this does not have any padding or under wire, again it is a slightly draped neckline. If you want support, you can always wear a bra underneath it. It is not fitted, but has a flowing cut that allows for the skin to breath. The straps are adjustable and meet at a very intricate lace pattern that forms a triangular racer back; this is a perfect accent to already delicate feel of the cami.
Let’s talk about the bottoms. It literally feels like you wearing the clouds or the dandelion seeds you blow once they turn white. The entire briefs are made of lace with the exception of the elastic waist band covered in the same satin material as top. Now, I want to also explain that French knickers do not like fit like boy shorts, thongs, bikini briefs, etc. They will be loose around the thighs and gently hug the booty. So they are loose fitting and you are free to put a thong or bikini bottom underneath.
I would recommend this set if you are just starting out in wearing lingerie. This two piece set is a great transition for someone who may have never worn lingerie or who normally sleeps in a tank top and some shorts. I appreciate that this set will looked great on any shape (pear, diamond, hourglass, round, etc). I have not slept in the set yet, but just based on the fabric and structure, this will be something you can easily sleep in. Again, if you want something is alluring, classic and quaint, this is the set for you.

The first time I bought corset, I was 19 years old. The only place I knew to purchase one (that would fit) was Frederick's of Hollywood. I honestly had no idea what I was doing when I was purchasing one, I just know I was always fascinated with burlesque dances and the Venetian courtesans that wore them in my imagination. I also want a smaller waist, my breast to sit high, and pair them some baby phat jeans (showing my age). My glee of carrying out my black brocade corset in that red bag was a joy for me…and a good corset is still one of favorite pieces of lingerie.
If you are looking for a great first time corset (specifically a French style over bust corset), this is a great one to start with if you are a novice. The shape of this corset is a Valentine Victorian or sweet heart top. The structure has boning throughout the piece and has the laced up back. This comes with a side zipper and not the more common hook and eye clasp. The pattern has beautiful lace brocade and comes with a matching V-String. The corset comes in the following colors: White, Black, Berry, Topaz, and Taupe and goes up to a size 44.
DISCLAIMER: AT THE AGE OF 34, I AM TRYING TO REALIZE WHAT MADE ME DESIRE TO HAVE SOMETHING EMBEDDED IN THE CRACK OF ASS. AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME, I CANNOT DO V-STRINGS AND G-STRINGS ANYMORE. MY CREASES AND CREVICES HAVE DENIED ALL FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES.
ALSO-DO NOT SLEEP IN YOUR CORSET!
Some Key things to keep in mind when purchasing a corset:
One of the best things about lingerie is that it can be both for a look for the night out or a night in. Whether it is some jeans, dress pants, or the matching V-sting, this flirty piece is very cute. The side zipper does make more convenient to get on and off and not having to worry about missing a hook. Again, whether you are a novice or connoisseur, this is a great corset to have in your collection. This piece can be found at SpicyLingeire.com.
As a fan of being, feeling and exuding my own definition of sexy, a great teddy will always be the piece of lingerie that exudes that sensuality for me.
One of my favorite brand's to shop for lingerie that fits thicker and buxom-ness women is Spicy Lingerie.com. This site hosts an array of lingerie from teddies, babydolls, chemise, corsets, etc.. Whether you are interested in french rococo style of lace to the faux leather of BDSM Spicy Lingerie has it. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the sizes range from Small to 5XL.
This one piece unit snaps in the crotch area and has adjustable straps (which can also be removed). The cups have and underwire and are structure (semi padding) to give you a lift, and adorned with lace. The rest of the body is structured in a semi-stretch lace that allows your skin to breathe. Since the lace pattern is flexible, it is flattering on all body types. Again very comfortable and easy to move in.
The Sleep Test
Overall, the sleeps very well (as best for an underwire). If you are going to sleep in it, I would suggest that you remove the straps for comfort.
The great thing about teddies are they can be used as outwear. Worn like a body suit, dress it up with some wide leg slacks or go casual sexy with some skinny jeans and some heels.
Again, this is an overall great piece to have in your collection. This simple yet sexy one piece can be paired with a simple sheer robe, with some thigh high stockings or by itself.
