High-Waist Knickers

High-waist fashion is back in style, but some still consider high-waist undies "granny panties". If you're a fan of the look, you could probably identify with Gertie's blog post "In Defense of Granny Panties". She lists what she loves most about high-waist knickers! Would you add anything?

"1. You'll get a smooth line. If you're looking for an hourglass figure, you can't do much better than a longline bra with some high-waisted undergarment on bottom. You don't want a strip of exposed flesh between your bra and your knickers, ruining your nice shapely curves, do you? Goodness no!
2. They work beautifully with retro and vintage clothes, like high-waisted trousers and skirts. And we all know how important the foundation garment is to the ensemble.
3. Tummy control. Nothing's better than a high-waisted undergarment for a smooth midsection. 
4. No muffin top.  They end where your waist is!
5. They're not as frumpy as you think. In my advice, I'd say ditch the nylon varieties, which can be weirdly baggy in all the wrong places. Get a nice microfiber, like these. (Love the pink color!) For more shaping, go with a classic Rago Lacette.
6. Bettie Page. Enough said."

You Are Beautiful!

Start the week off feeling ‪‎beautiful‬ with these inspiring quotes about loving your body‬ on Cosmopolitan Magazine! See the gifs and images paired with them on their article, "11 Body Image Boosters That Will Make You Love Yourself".

1. Take a good look at yourself—and let the words of Oprah cleanse your soul: "The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you're too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
2. Repeat after Christina Hendricks: Life’s too short to beat yourself up for indulging in dessert, nachos, etc. The Mad Men vixen has said, "Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, 'Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, 'cause I loved it.'"
3. Don't judge yourself by other people's—or society's—standards. Take it from Khloe Kardashian: "I’m proud of my body. My body weight will always be something that I’ll struggle with for the rest of my life, but I’m finally in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else's standards." Preach!
4. Remember that starving yourself sucks. And J. Law doesn't approve of it in any way: “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors! I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss so I’m going to skip dinner!’”
5. Choose to love yourself, just as you are.

Shapewear Survey on Lingerie Briefs

John Festa conducted a survey to learn about how women wear and think about shapewear. Read his in-depth discussion on the Lingerie Briefs post, Shapewear is meant to "Create A Shape".
"Recently, I conducted an unscientific survey on women’s thoughts on shapewear; just a bunch of questions on the topic. I was happily surprised by the quantity and quality of the responses. It was spectacularly enlightening and actually very entertaining. Some of you broads are funny!  (Can I say that?)  My sincere gratitude to all respondents for their time, their forthcoming and for sharing intimate information. Shapewear is a wonderful tool to facilitate a polished, confident look. As with any other tool, knowing how to use it is key. It is my deep desire that something in this post will be enlightening and add a bit of light to your life.
First the results. Fantastically interesting. And the survey says:" - John Festa 

When and why do you wear shapewear and what sorts of complaints do you have about them?

Posture check!

Having good posture gets you feeling and looking good instantly! Imagining an upward pull from behind your ears can help guide you to the right position. Shapewear is also known for supporting good posture by helping you straighten your spine.
