Four New Ways to Wear Lingerie

When you think of wearing lingerie, you most likely see yourself in the bedroom, right? Contrary to popular belief, lingerie isn’t just apparel that was designed to be taken off. More women are wearing glamorous lingerie pieces in public as part of their everyday outfits.

That’s right: lingerie can be subtly incorporated into your ensemble, giving your ordinary clothes a sexy flair as well as giving you an opportunity to enjoy your favorite pieces more often. Here are four new ways to wear lingerie outside of the bedroom.


 

Corset

Four New Ways to Wear Lingerie | Leg Avenue Blog
 

A corset can give a fierce edge to an otherwise simple ensemble. Lace one up with a pair of straight-cut or flared jeans to balance out the fitted look, and layer with a cardigan or blazer. When styled like this, the corset looks more like a tube top or fitted blouse, but still gives you the benefit of a defined, curvy silhouette. Wear a simple corset for a subtle look, or rock an embellished one as a statement piece. Whichever way you choose, everyone will love the bold twist to your casual ensemble.

#Curvy Trendsetters We’re Loving in 2015

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 11.29.04 AM

It’s a good time to be curvy, ladies! With the recent surge of the body positive movement and popularity of plus size models, there seems to be a shift in society’s perception of beauty. Curvy girls everywhere are confident and flaunting what they’ve got—knowing they’re beautiful because of their bodies, not despite them. Regardless of Instagram’s recent ban on #curvy, we’ve identified three ladies who are unapologetically showing that curves are nothing to be ashamed of. They are frontrunners in the body acceptance movement, encouraging women to love their bodies the way they are. We wouldn’t mind seeing all of them in our Killer Curves lingerie line, either.


 

Ashley Graham



She gained stardom after appearing in the first ever ad featuring a plus size model in this year’s Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has taken the fashion world by storm ever since. With “lingerie designer” as the newest title under her belt, she’s been incredibly vocal about overcoming the rigid standard of beauty that shames larger women into covering up or becoming thinner. “I really truly believe that beauty is beyond size because there is beauty in every type of woman,” she tells The Coveteur.


 

Tess Holliday


At size 22, Holliday is loud and proud of every curve she’s earned. At the beginning of this year, she broke boundaries by signing with MiLK Model Management, being the first model of her size to sign with a major modeling agency. She has taken to social media to start the #Effyourbeautystandards movement, encouraging others to create their own definitions of beauty and not to focus on what others may label as flaws… whether that refers to body type, race, sexuality, or gender. “It’s all about accepting yourself the way you are now and loving who you are today. If you want to work towards a better you … do it, but you’re OK just the way you are today,” she told Today.


 

Courtney Mina


We have a special place in our heart reserved for Courtney Mina. This Instagram beauty is famously known for shamelessly showing off her curves in the sexiest of lingerie (hit us up, girl, we got you!). She challenged herself to post a lingerie selfie every day for one week to see what the results would be. She was overcome with an outpouring of support, and claimed she could count the negative comments on one hand. She told People, “I wanted to not only explain and show how I gained my own confidence, but show people what actually happens when you’re a plus-size person being confident, sexy, and showing off your body.”


 

These women are collectively changing the conversation around bigger bodies and letting the world know that they can be just as beautiful as the next one. By redefining the standards of beauty, these women are positively impacting the lives of others around the world. So ladies, embrace your curves, step out of the box that conventional beauty standards have established, and flaunt what you’ve got. Once you can learn to love yourself, you will see how beautiful you truly are. They’re telling fat-shaming to “talk to the hand,” and creating a community of confident women who can finally be comfortable in their own skin. Snaps to you, ladies!

How to Store Your Lingerie

When splurging on some nice lingerie for yourself, you want to be sure that you’re giving extra care and attention to it so that the pieces last as long as they’re intended to. Knowing the right way to wash your lingerie is the first half of the battle (which we’ve talked about before on the blog here).

Cute & Colorful EDC Outfit Ideas

3925_multi_f

EDC, aka the Electric Daisy Carnival, is hitting the Vegas strip later this month, and then heads to the UK in July. The only thing more fun than actually dancing the night away at the festival is picking your outfits. EDC gives you the chance to step outside your comfort zone and be wild for a weekend. You’re able to express yourself in a different way than what’s acceptable in the “real world,” and let go of inhibitions, especially when it comes to fashion.

The recurring trends of EDC fashion include tutus, bras, fun socks, fishnets, and a TON of color. Here are our top picks for putting together your own EDC outfit that will have you going all out all weekend.

 

Furry Leg Warmers

Choose a solid color to coordinate with the rest of your outfit, or go for broke with the rainbow pair.

 

Bikini Top with G-String & Mini Skirt

Looking to flaunt your feminine side? You can do no better than this ruffly blue and pink set, adorned with lace and bows. The underwire bra offers a little more support than a bikini top will when you’re rocking out to your favorite remix. If the bottoms are a little too daring, pair this set with a blue, pink, or even green tutu!

 

Rainbow Fishnet Halter Mini Dress

No matter what you wear (or don’t wear), your weekend will be a blast as long as you’re comfortable and confident in your outfit. Keep in mind the long, hot desert days and all of the moving you’ll be doing when putting together your EDC outfits. With all the pictures that are going to be taken, you’ll definitely want different options for each day. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, and let your freak flag fly!
