Sexy Comes in Many Packages

I decided that visual aids were necessary for my most recent post about undergarments I find sexier than a thong.  I visited the easiest site first – Victoria’s Secret.  I found a sufficient number of pictures and was just about to hit the publish button when I realized that by using exclusively pictures of very slender women, I would be tacitly endorsing the social view that only size 2s are attractive.  Next stop Lane Bryant.  I intended to use at least half of the images from that site to reflect a more balanced approach to sexy.


Most of it was hideous.  I did a google search for “intimate apparel women with curves.” More hideousness appeared.  I resigned myself to having fought the good fight and used the one picture from Lane Bryant that didn’t suck.  I am certain that attractive and sexy intimate attire can be found in the sizes that many real life women wear, but it is a sad commentary that one need look so hard to find it.


(Side note: for the past 48 hours I have been getting a high number of banner ads for Lane Bryant, and dating websites for “larger” people)

    Hey, I’m a size 2, and I’m HIDEOUS. 🙂

    a) I somehow doubt your self-proclaimed hideousness
    b) I have heard otherwise from trusted sources
    c) Larger point: sexy can be size 0 to 20, five foot nothing to touching the sky, and every combination between

  4. I applaud your efforts, RR. Good to know that you might find my size 8, yet sagging body, sexy. LOL

    It is a scary lingerie world out there. But thanks for fighting the good fight for the benefit of women bloggers everywhere.

    And thanks for visiting me and convincing me that I should not go on that horrible date! The trail also let me to find the hilarious Dating After 40 site. After reading her entry about dating the Elvis impersonator I think you may be right.

    Aw, shucks, ma’am, just doin’ my job. Thank you.

    On a funny note, it took me until the part about this “gentleman” having kids that I was positive it wasn’t me.
