August 5th is National Underwear Day and I am thrilled to be the Queen of the inaugural Underwear Parade in New Orleans!
Beyond the fact that it’s fun to parade in your panties, we are parading with a purpose! We are strutting to promote body positivity, because the human body is positively beautiful in all its many shapes and sizes. As a lady who professionally runs around in sparkly drawers, I feel qualified to make a few recommendations on panties that best frame the gorgeous work of art that is YOU!
Gossard Retrolution Set
When I first saw this bra, I immediately fell in love and got not one, but two! For those ladies that have a lot on top and aren’t afraid to show it off, the dramatic plunge highlights the full curve of your beautiful tatas while still providing support with sturdy underwire and a wide bra strap. Another thing I love about this brand and this particular style is that you can pair it with matching bottoms in a thong, brief, or waist cincher depending on how much skin you wanna show.
Free People Wild Roses Set
I’ve only recently become acquainted with Free People lingerie and love their comfy, very wearable sets. The Wild Roses Bralette & hipster are my current favorite in the line. With a simple yet gorgeous color/pattern and flexible, breathable fabric that hugs your body, it’s a shame that we can’t wear this underwear as outerwear everyday!
Felina Priscilla Set
I can’t help it, I’m a magpie! I’ve long been a fan of Felina as they always provide comfortable supportive garments in super cute colors at a very reasonable price. The Priscilla set in sparkling ocean makes me feel like a mermaid with its shimmering bright blue lace. The keyhole cutout in both the top and bottom is a really delicate, feminine accent without showing a ton of cleavage from the boobs or the derriere.
Blush Dotty Play Set
Make them blush with Blush! I can’t highly recommend this brand enough. Maybe a little bit creepy stalker girl, but I loved one of their styles so much that we made a whole group dance just to showcase the lingerie on six ladies all at once. The Dotty Play Convertible Bra and Retro Brief is the perfect option for someone who might be a bit on the fence about marching in their drawers. The retro polka dot pattern and generously covered cut makes this set feel more like a vintage bathing suit (and hence making you look like a bit like a vintage pin up). Pair this with a red lip and a nice pair of heels and you’re ready to take over the world!
Chantal Thomass Mambolita Set
Chantal Thomass always makes me feel like a glamorous French lady who feasts on champagne and cheese in lingerie ALL day. While this is definitely on the higher end of the price spectrum, it is worth every penny. The Mambolita Ruffle Bra and Boyshort should never be hidden under clothes. This is lingerie that is fun, flirty, and meant to be seen–so show it off!
Playful Promises Juliet Set
I first saw this brand on my friend, model/dancer Miss Miranda. The harness portion of this Juliet Harness Bra makes it a more naughty option, but an absolutely stunning set for those who can wear it with an attitude to match.
I can’t wait for you to feel your sexiest in one of these picks! And if you’re in New Orleans, come parade in your panties with me on August 5th!
