Dita Von Teese’s 10 Golden Rules For Valentine’s Day Lingerie

Valentine’s day is nearly here, and honestly what says “Happy Valentine’s Day” more deliciously than sensational lingerie??


Last week Vogue.com published Marjon Carlos’ article Dita Von Teese’s 10 Golden Rules Fot Valentine’s Day Lingerie.
In the story the Burlesque dancer and queen of seduction, talks about what items you should have, shopping for lingerie and how to get things all steamed up for Valentine’s day.
Dita also talks about what to do if you don’t have a Valentine, because to quote Dita from the article “Seduction has nothing to do with other people, it’s all about creating your own look”
Brilliant, non?

Excerpted from the article:

A girl’s first piece should be in black lace . . .


Black lace is sophisticated, elegant, and erotic all at once, and it looks terrific on every woman. I say invest in a gorgeous set. Buy a bra that fits very well, plus two to three pairs of matching underwear, with varying shapes to add versatility to your wardrobe. The underwear needs to have double the life of the bra, so it’s smart to buy duplicates. Bonus points for the garter belt!

A corset over a waist trainer—any day!


Well, there’s a lot of misinformation about what a waist trainer is and what it isn’t, and there are all kinds of companies making these strange stretchy waist-training corsets. It’s important to look past the trendy celebrity-endorsed products—you can’t shape your waist with a Lycra corset, and that’s what they are all talking about.

Waist shaping can be accomplished with a true corset, which should be custom-made to your measurements. It is also no substitute for diet and exercise, and waist training doesn’t happen overnight; it takes a bit of time. I suggest looking to long-established corset brands like Dark Garden Corsetry or Mr. Pearl, and avoid all the new companies trying to jump on the bandwagon.

Let garter belts be your Valentine’s Day Gift to Bae.

Garter belts and stockings are the perfect thing to try! Wear them the French way: underwear over the top of the garter belt, not under. Black stockings and a black garter belt are sophisticated and erotic. Invest in good-quality pieces. I wear garters in everyday life, so the ones from my collections are very functional and made with six straps and power mesh to keep stockings in place. I have a drawerful of cute garter belts from luxe brands that are only really wearable for photo shoots, so when I created my own line, I set out to make garters that function properly. I’d say garter belts are my specialty.

Dita has some really great girl advice in the article, including this gem:

 “I always saw lingerie as a moment of beauty and luxury for myself.”

I have always felt the same way about beautiful lingerie.

Another great Dita quote: “I never put lingerie on for a man. Ever since I was a little girl, I saw lingerie as something that was symbolic of womanhood and femininity.”

50 Shades Of Lingerie

I’m going to a screening of 50 Shades Of Grey tonight. I read that there are no fabulous underpinnings in the movie, but even so I’m thinking Valentines Day this year will be all about 50 Shades of Lingerie.

So without the movie to provide glorious lingerie I went googling to find some interesting undies to write about, and I found this article on Vogue.com  
It’s well worth a read, with some 50 Shades worthy naughty pieces paired with some hilarious quotes.
