I'm still trying to get my head around this!
Springtime is almost upon us, and that means the new lines of lingerie are blooming! One of our favorites is Frederick's of Hollywood. While most of their lingerie is definitely for the night out, we love some of their basic lingerie that you can wear anywhere, and still feel sinfully sexy at the same time!
The Frederick's Embroidered Flora Bra is sure to be a favorite this spring. This bra is made of a silky soft stretch embroidery and mesh, and boost cleavage naturally. It features a simple, white floral fabric on both sides of the bodice, and showcases your décolletage in a pretty yet flattering way. You can pair this bra with the matching Embroidered Floral Half-Slip and thigh-highs for unstoppable sexiness. Some of the bra features:
- Partial peek-a-boo cup
- Underwire for support
- Comfortable, adjustable shoulder straps

The good folks at Bomb.tv really do know how to throw a great Christmas party. Four beautiful Japanese idols Maya Koizumi 小泉麻耶, Azusa Togashi 富樫あずさ, Yua Saito 齊藤夢 and Yui Koike 小池唯 put on bikinis and santa hats to show their Christmas spirit. If this doesn't qualify as Cosplay, we're not sure what does. The entire Cosplay pictorial is here at Japan Sugoi.
Check out the Christmas video below. Japan really does have the Christmas spirit.
This week our sponsor is Newport Beach-based luxury boudoir service For Him To Love. For Him To Love has taken boudoir photography to the next level, with packages ranging from the most affordable $500 to the most decadent, in-home or at your favorite luxury hotel for an additional fee. We love the fun themes and the romance and passion they inspire in the women, men and couples they work with.
And their use of technology is amazing. Waiting for a book is so 1990s. For Him To Love uses the latest Apple technologies including AppleTV and iPad to deliver your photos and videos in new and flattering ways. Want to show off how good you look in lingerie in your home theatre after the kids go to bed? Now you can.
Check out the latest blog post including a very sultry lingerie fantasy in the kitchen (with frosting!).
Japanese Cosplayers get all sorts of inspiration. Today's Cosplay was inspired by Konami's 2004 all-girl wrestling game Rumble Roses. Japanese Cosplayer Akira Itsuki brings the wrestler named Aigle to life with bra, bikini and boots!
Does sexy lingerie reflect your confidence, or does sexy lingerie make you feel more confident? It's a chicken-and-egg question. What we do know is that beautiful lingerie accentuates and amplifies your beauty, and people around you notice. It's that simple. Sexy lingerie builds confidence even in the most shy.
What are you wearing tonight?
Halloween is behind us, but we always have an excuse for dressing up thanks to the Japanese. It's called Cosplay, and this is Cosplay Saturday at SilkySoft! Our theme this week: Neko! ("Kitty" in Japanese).
Neko Cosplay combines feline sensuality with everything we love about lingerie and adds a dash of crazy fun.
Every year, Thanksgiving is followed by a melee of Black Friday sales almost everywhere. As you might imagine, we're particularly fond of the lingerie sales from some of our favorite companies, including Frederick's of Hollywood and Adam & Eve.
Check out the sales on their sites, and indulge a little, even for yourself!
It's been a little while, so we thought it would be fun to share a few more Japan-inspired Cosplay Lingerie ideas! Cosplay (the Japanese amalgam of the phrase "Costume Play") can be as imagination-inspired as you want it to be. Ranging from something as simple as cute hair and lingerie to a fantasy-inspired maiden (or knight) in something sexy and frivolous makes for great Cosplay!
Lingerie is sexy. It's beautiful, and accentuates your beauty.
Lingerie is also like magic. It transports you to a different place, where you can relax, unwind, and even slip into your own sexy fantasy.
Where does lingerie take you?

Founded by Dr. Bernard in 1875, and grown by the Pasquier family since 1958, Aubade of Paris is legendary for its lingerie. The Bahia range of lingerie was introduced in 1993 by Aubade and is designed as essential wear. The Bahia lineup is so much more than what most people expect from daily basic wear: Sensuality, complicity, creativity and glamour are all found in this highest of quality lingerie.
The Bahia Tanga Panty is one of our favorite pieces from the Bahia collection. An elegant combination of English embroidery and soft cotton is accentuated with a satiny bow on the front. And on the minimalist back, a very seductive fixed lacing with a knot adds a playful note to this tanga.
Kitty or bunny? Which would you choose for a Halloween party presence? We like both, but Kitty is our favorite. Felines are clever, sleek, graceful, lithe, and crafty. All of our favorite qualities in one little furry bundle.
Because I've been posting about lingerie-related Halloween Costumes and because of our Halloween Sexy Costume Contest, I decided to share my absolute favorite: Kitty!
This isn't any feline costume, this one is custom, and I'm going to give you the shopping list! Fortunately you can get everything from one place now. Frederick's of Hollywood has some absolutely amazing accessories that, put together, and with a little makeup awesomeness (link to Michelle Phan), will have Kitty getting all the attention at the party, whether it's a party out on the town, or a sexy night in.
Here's what you're going to need:
The first and most important piece in this project is the Hollywood Dream Corset. I like black, but you could improvise and go for red or white, depending on how much you want to improvise for the rest of the costume elements. The corset is made of sumptuous luxe jacquard accented with Venice lace trim, has light boning to create that sought-after hourglass shape, and has a lace-up back for very good adjustability. Note: There's even a full-figure version of the same corset!
The garters are detachable, which is good, because we're not going to need them (necessarily) for this costume. And the corset comes with a matching g-string, which you can put away in your lingerie drawer, because we're not going to need it this time around. Which brings us to the second piece of lingerie in our project: The Ruffled Boy Short.
The Ruffled Boy Short is covered in layers of flirty ruffles. You can get yours from Frederick's of Hollywood, but a few other lingerie makers have some equally if not more exciting and fun designs. I particularly like Coquette Lingerie's Ruffled Boy Short with Back Bow in black (on right) . It's lines are just a tad sexier that even Frederick's design.
This may not yet seem like Kitty's costume, but just wait. We're almost there!
Next, we need Frederick's Essential Fishnet Pantyhose. This is a classic closet staple anyway, and you should have this in your pantyhose collection at all times! Not at all conservative, this pantyhose makes almost any outfit more exciting.
So far, we've been working from top to bottom. Which brings me to shoes. Not just any shoes. We need shoes that only Kitty would wear. Shoes that are both sexy and chic.
My favorite so far are the Frederick's of Hollywood Strappy Shadow Stilettos. With a 5 1/2" heel and a 2 1/2" platform, these artfully crafted stilettos create a stunning, yet chic look. Kitty's getting attention in these, no matter how tall she is.
Finally, the Captivating Kitty Kit (links to Fredericks) pulls all the pieces perfectly together. With cat ears, neckpiece and a luxurious furry tail, your costume takes on a bold life of its own.
A corset is one of the most popular and necessary pieces of anyone's lingerie collection. It's designed to slim the figure, and help adapt the body to a style necessary to fit into a dress. At SilkySoft we're impressed when we find lingerie that delivers both style and support, fashion and function. The Renaissance Corset from Frederick's of Hollywood delivers.
The Renaissance Corset is simple, elegant and accentuates your curves. It's sleek design is complemented by a lace-up back to cinch your waistline, and the front is a very practical hook-and-eye closure style. You can attach or detach adjustable garters as well.
