Damn you, Facebook ads: Our review of the True & Co. Second Skin bra

As you might already know if you read our site regularly, we’re suckers for Facebook ads, which is why you see our reviews of everything from THINX period underwear to Bombas socks, even those Like A Glove leggings that help you buy jeans that fit you. These ads pop up in our Facebook feed and we just can’t stop ourselves. But hey, you get the reap the benefits of me being a guinea pig because we share the honest scoop on these popular products. That’s why we decided to start a new feature here called, “Damn you, Facebook ads.” First up, the True & Co....

Cake Maternity’s new lingerie offerings. Just in time to help moms-to-be feel sexy on Valentine’s Day too.

Valentine’s Day is, of course, my free pass to splurge on sexy lingerie. But don’t underestimate the power of lacy cotton panties to keep you feeling flirty the other 364 days of the year. We’ve been big fans of Cake Lingerie‘s beautiful lingerie made specifically for moms-to-be, and now I’m excited about their new fashion knickers packs. It’s comfortable-yet-sexy everyday underwear that you can wear during those months when you need a little extra something to make you feel fabulous, and then, long after baby is born.       This set of four very soft, very pretty cotton panties are cut low in the...

The Valentines gift for the romantic with a naughty streak

A little secret about me: I am a serious romantic. I’d always rather get a heartfelt card for Valentine’s Day–or any day, really–than even a box of fancy chocolates or some sexy lingerie. But if you’re looking for a cool Valentine’s gift for a special lady that offers two out of three, you’ll find it with the clever, brand new, Hidden Love Letter Panties from lingerie company Naja. You specify some sweet (or racy) words of love, and provided your special message is 35 characters or less, they’ll print the note on the inside of a pair of navy or red-hot red panties. And...

Slip happens.

Okay, I know it isn’t 1984 and Madonna isn’t the world’s biggest style icon, but I must confess that I’ve started showing my bra straps again. And not in the “I-have-a-baby-feeding-from-my-boobs” kinda way. And here I must confess that our staff is entirely split on this premise, and some feel that perhaps bras still should actually remain undergarments that actually go…you know, under a garment. However if you know you’re going to have bras peeping out of your tanks or sundresses (whether you mean to or not), consider the gorgeously colorful Matchy Matchy bra straps as a way to do it with a little more...

Hotmilk sexy nursing bras. Oh yes they are. And so are you.

So let’s talk sexy nursing bras. Because Mama, you’ve done an amazing job growing a beautiful, perfect little baby inside of you for the last nine months. Then you rocked that delivery, bringing him or her into this world. And now you’re spending your days snuggling and loving on that baby while you nurse. But I also know that feeding a baby all the time is no easy task, and can make some of us feel more like the chuck wagon than a gorgeous, confident woman. Which is why the new line of sexy nursing bras from  CMP favorite Hotmilk could be a fun...

Super cool last minute Valentine’s gift ideas you can still get delivered in time. Because IOUs aren’t sexy.

Let’s not call us procrastinators. Let’s just say…we’re busy. Because we are. So we get it.  if you’re still looking for a last  minute Valentine’s Day gift for a special someone, here are a few ideas that go a little further than a hastily scribbled, wrinkled card that was the second to last one left on the shelf. Candygram from Sugarfina I am in love with this Beverly Hills confectionary which isn’t as big on the fancy gourmet truffles as they are on kitchy, playful ways of repackaging childhood favorites as in a Sweetheart Bento Box, a Pucker Up...

Sexy maternity lingerie for Valentine’s Day: Yes, you can go there. And you should.

Sexy maternity lingerie when you’re pregnant or nursing? I’m on board! When I was pregnant and nursing, I always felt a little bummed about Valentine’s Day; it was hard for me to feel really attractive when I ballooned up to the size of a Smart Car or was leaking breast milk. So I’m super excited for my new-mama friends who get to buy from lingerie designers who are making women feel sexy in beautiful, sweet and even a little racy maternity lingerie like the ones here. The maternity bra-and-panty sets from You! Lingerie (at top) are super hot — and affordable....

True & Co: Bra shopping just got more amazing than ever. Because you don’t have to go.

The idea of a service that let’s you order bras online with “virtual” fitters–well, call me a skeptic. A big skeptic. Until I found this brilliant (seriously) service that…wow. This is not like any online bra shop I’ve ever seen. True & Co is like having a personal lingerie shopper at your service, without the indignity of her feeling you up in the fluorescent-lit dressing room. You just answer a few very specific, multiple choice questions about the fit of your bra: Things like how the bra straps fit, the shape of your breasts, which hook on your bra...

Maternity loungewear for the first, third, and fifth trimesters

I admit that a few kids ago, I’d probably roll my eyes a bit at the idea of maternity loungewear. But after seeing the gorgeous dresses from one of our favorite brands, Belabumbum, I’m almost wishing I had a real excuse to wear them. They’re so amazing that whether you’re in your 1st, 3rd, or 5th trimester (or 15th? Ahem), they look and feel fabulous. [don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!] To me, the standout in their newest line is the beautiful reversible maternity dress that’s incredibly soft and comfortable. The crossover neck gives you easy nursing access, and...

The camisole that will make you look for a reason to wear a camisole

I’ve always traveled with a camisole just in case…to me, it’s one of those staples that you never know when you’ll need. Like under a white tee that’s a little sheerer than you realized. Or to tuck into your jeans under a top when uh…said jeans are exposing more than the maximum allowable mama butt. (Yes, that’s a thing.) Now there’s a camisole that’s so comfy, I’m kind of looking for excuses to wear it. I don’t tend to be too hooked by lines like “celebrities love them!” but as it turns out, Snug Camisoles are terrific, so, yeah....

Who says pregnancy can’t be sexy?

At 38 weeks pregnant, I can honestly say I feel about as unsexy as a sack of potatoes. But just like putting a smile on your face is supposed to make you feel happier, wearing sexy lingerie should do the same thing, right? That was my mindset when I tried on a set of aggressively saucy purple and black lace lingerie. We’ve all heard the term “hot mama” before, but You! Lingerie, a collection of nursing bras and maternity lingerie is taking the yummy mummy look to extremes. The Azalea Orchid (pictured), the set I was sent, is a...

Let them wear Cake lingerie

Considering I have nursed for a total of 53 months since 2004 (yes, I counted), I have learned a few things about breastfeeding; one of which is that a good nursing bra is definitely worth the money. Now these days, “good nursing bra” isn’t synonymous with “ugly straight jacket,” and thank goodness for that, because a sexy nursing bra like the ones from Cake Lingerie, is quite refreshing when you’re feeling less like a woman and more like a feeding machine. These bras are beautifully constructed with hearty, cotton-lined straps (nice touch) and lovely lace detailing. And I really...

Your legs look FABULOUS, darling. And the rest of you too.

Yes, it’s true. My body is…wait for it….imperfect. I know that’s shocking with me being a 40-something mom of two and all but, you know. Biology. It’s no secret that I’ve always been a big Spanx fan, so I haven’t really found much need to venture into the rest of the world of shapewear. But then I had the chance to try Sculptz, and wow, call me impressed. The shapewear tights are a far cry from the control top L’Eggs I remember dabbling in (before I needed them) – the shaper top is super comfortable, and really does uh,...

Sexy nursing bras for Valentine’s Day — or any day

Since the first time I breastfed back in 2004, nursing bras have come a verrrrry long way from the boring hefty brassiere I was stuck with. Now you even can snazz things up with a little satin and lace. Perennial nursing bra fave Bravado! Designs has added a sexier bra to their mix of well-designed bras and tanks with the Sublime, a lacy but subtle new choice (love the wine color!). It’s definitely on the daintier side and the lace detail over the decolletage might end up showing more than you normally would if you’re uh, well endowed. That’s...

Shapewear for sexy mamas

You know how after the baby is born, you have that extra bit around the middle that just doesn’t fit into your clothes? My baby is seven and I’m still fighting that. (Sorry, mamas, it’s true.) But wait! DuMi Shapewear has a solution! These lightweight camisoles are surprisingly comfortable, considering what a great job they do of pulling your midsection back to where it used to be. And each style comes with a built-in bra, so smaller chested mamas (ahem) can wear the cami on its own. DuMi’s camisoles come in three styles; my favorite is the Body Sculpting...

Underwear to the rescue!

Clearly the green movement is everywhere, including, now, your underwear. Indeed your skivvies are the next if not final frontier for a demonstration of your commitment to all things eco, as we’ve recently discovered. At the UK’s Love Eco, the Pants to Poverty undies are made of fair trade organic cotton, with a cute little waistband to spread the word, should yours accidentally poke out of your jeans. All the profits are put back into the farms and manufacturing coops and I’d imagine there will be quite a bit of it, considering the skivvies are about $15 US each....

Hanky Panky opens and Naughty Santa is delighted

For years I was mystified by the thong, an article of clothing that felt more “medieval torture device” than comfy undergarment. But, after hearing about Hanky Panky’s thongs, I gave them a try and have been a convert to their comfortable yet super-sexy lace thongs ever since. Heck, there may be days when I haven’t brushed my hair and have more stains on my shirt than I care to think about, but I always have a little more swing in my hips with Hanky Panky on underneath. Just this weekend, in time for me to drop a ton of...
