Okay, so Elle Magazine here in Canada just came out with an article on their Fashionism website entitled “8 Must-Have Lingerie Items”
Here’s what they had to say:
Sexy pieces every woman should have in her lingerie drawer.
If you want your lingerie to sizzle all year ’round — turn up the heat with some super-salicious pieces. ELLE Canada visited hot lingerie shop, Avec Plaisir, in Toronto, where sexy celebs like Mariah Carey and Catherine Zeta Jones head for their unmentionables. We chat with owner Vasilia on how to build the perfect lingerie wardrobe.
Demi-lace bra For those low-cut items that give just a glimpse of décolletage, you need something that’s flirty and stands out.
Bustier Bra A bustier gives you lift and sex appeal. “It’s perfect for under a jacket,” says Vasilia, “or any item where you want to show something off. La Perla makes some beautiful ones.”
Well-fitted corset No ladies, corsets aren’t just reserved for the 18th century or weddings. Corsets cinch the waist and enhance curves, plus, due to modern technological advancements, you can actually breathe in them.
Long Gown A flowing knit gown is a no-fuss approach to sleepwear but still exudes a sex kitten look. “Comfort and sexiness is what all women want,” explains Vasilia.
Baby Doll Innocent and va-va-voom at the same time, a lacy black baby doll will bring out the inner romantic in you. ” It’s so comfy and playful,” says Vasilia. “and oh-so-flirty.”
Strapless Bra Set A must! It’s the turn-to bra in the summer or for that perfect cocktail dress and every woman needs one. “Getting the whole set, complete with flirty panties and sexy garter makes it extra special,” explains Vasilia, “especially if only you know they are under there!”
French-seamed stockings The best way to describe a pair of well-made French-seamed hose — sultry. Vasilia insists it’s “a must-have.” Bonus: The seam up the back is like a magnet for a guy’s eye.
Fish net stay-ups A slick pair of fish net hose never goes out of style and nothing gives more definition to your legs. “It’s worth investing in high-end stockings,” says Vasilia, “they complete your outfit and make you look very polished. Opt for a pair from Wolford, they’re worth the investment!”

I’m bringing this to your attention for a couple reasons. First off, it would appear that corsets, seamed stockings and fishnets are becoming more and more mainstream. Good? I think so. But what’s left for those of us who would like to continue to dress on the edge? Wearing latex to the PTA meeting?
And what’s all this about comfort? It’s not important to all of us. Remember what “Fernando” on SNL used to say (with his sexy Spanish accent) .. “Darlings, it’s better to rook good than to feel good!”
And secondly, I did notice there were two things on the list that I don’t even own. And not surprisingly, they’re the two most mainstream items on the list, in my opinion. A baby doll and a long night gown.
Sooooo .. if mainstream girls are gonna start wearing the stuff that are staples in my wardrobe, I’m going to start wearing their things!
Anyone want to send me a baby doll or a long gown? I really don’t want to freak the ladies out when I strut my tranny self into the type of lingerie store that specializes in them. I promise to wear them for you and will do a photo album or two for my site. *giggling*
