Lurking in my Panties

In honor of Love Our Lurkers Day I thought I would talk about something near and dear to my heart- Lingerie!

I have said it before, and I will say it again. I love it! To the point where I may have a bit of a problem. But I am a savvy shopper. I love scoring a sale and finding matching items for pieces I already own (that sort of sounds like I'm antiquing, not underwear shopping). A lot of times I end up at the discount stores, searching through the racks and racks of things. But this is a crap shoot. Some days I can score a great deal, other days there is nothing worth a second glance.

Anyway, my long standing love affair started many years ago at the old stand by Victoria's Secret. They were having some kind of giant sale. This is where I bought my first pieces of lingerie (2 in fact). I still have them and wear them. Over the years, for special occasions, I would go back to this anchor store to spice up the lingerie box (yes, I have a box of it- which is now overflowing). But recently I have noticed a disturbing trend. Everything sort of looks the same. Nothing looks really all that sexy to me.

Then I thought (gasp) is it me? Do I just own so much lingerie and little sexy things that I have desensitized myself to the sexiness of it all??

I called in an expert. My husband. He confirmed my suspicions. He mentioned something about it all sort of looking the same, there were a lot of flowery patterns, and their Pink collection looks like underwear you can see from space.

Don't get me wrong, I would probably still wear it, but now I know hot pink zebra print is not his thing. Also, I think this is actually a sports bra. That's another thing, why is VS selling workout clothes and regular clothes? Where is all the sexy underwear?

Our anniversary was just in September and I wanted to find something new to add to my collection. But where to go? My husband suggested Frederick's of Hollywood. I forgot this was even a store. I vaguely remember them being in our mall when I was in middle school and every time I walked past the window there was always a lot of fringe and tassles. And that's when it hit me, yes! Fringe and tassles. This could be my kind of place!

I found them online. I lost a good chunk of my day drooling over all the sexy things, debating which items I should splurge on and which I could wait for a sale. Then I loaded up my virtual shopping cart. I anxiously awaited the mail man everyday.

I bought a few items but this pair of panties was by far my favorite (and the reaction I got from my husband was pretty awesome too).

They made me feel instantly sexy. They are completely impractical, but lovely at the same time.

Sure, on an average day I'm usually wearing my cotton, bikini cut panties (not white though- usually striped, or polka dotted, or Muppets). The weekends or when I am going out with my husband I opt for a sexy little lacy thong and matching bra (matching always ups the heat factor for me).

So I want to know, what kind of underwear do you find sexiest? Is there a certain fabric or cut you find sexier? (Either on you or on someone you like looking at in their underwear.)

Stop lurking and leave a comment. I promise I don't bite!


  1. Happy LOL Day, Casey! You sure know how to post provocative topics. :)

  2. Hello Casey. First time on your blog and am really enjoying it. Love your LOL Day lingerie post. A woman can never have too many panties. Happy LOL Day!

  3. I think this is my first visit here!
    Happy Love your Lingerie ... uh, I mean.... Love Our Lurkers Day :)

  4. I like simple knickers, one colour, preferable boy shorts. Happy LOL day.


  5. Hi Casey,

    Happy LOL 8 day! I'm a regular visitor to your blog, and always enjoy your posts.


  6. Ana- it's hardly provocative, I'm not even talking about sex!

    Michael- Hi! Thanks for stopping by. And I agree, too many panties is not enough!

    Mr. BB- Nice to see you here!

    Spankedhortic- Thanks for stopping by. Sometimes simple is the best :)

    Hermione- Thanks for commenting. It's nice to meet you. Happy LOL 8 Day to you too :)

  7. LOL I love your post title. :-)

    Happy LOL Day Casey!

  8. Loved those, Casey!
    I need to go virtual shopping with you some time. You have great taste!

    My faves are also my practical ones. They are called cutie booties. By Aerie.
    They have a small bit of elastic in between both cheeks - ruching.

    Very sexy - and it helps since I have a runner's butt!
    Happy LOL Day!

  9. I can always count on you for my lingerie fix, Casey! I am a sucker for a good vintage looking corset set. I'm currently drooling over the panties that you posted. Oh, yes! That is very much my thing. I don't splurge on lingerie very often. So, I collect virtually on pinterest. I do love window shopping lingerie with my husband online. It's very hot to see what he likes compared to what I like.

  10. Casey,

    Love the knickers, sexy indeed.

    Happy LOL Day.


  11. I love you so much, Casey! *hug!* Just SO much cute in this little post! "underwear you can see from space," lol :D

    And yay for Muppet panties!

    As for favourite things, hm... tough question. I think my tastes are undoubtedly influenced by the amount of dressing up for roleplay I do (and/or the association kink has with sex and feeling sexy), so I think e.g. that plain white high-leg briefs (a la schoolwear) are highly sexy.

    Other than that... not too much pattern, nice clean lines (not too much frill or lace), a nice balance between too little and too much material. (No thongs!) And matching is definitely a plus on the sexy scale xx

  12. Thanks Clint and Chelsea!

    Natasha- I feel so hot in them, it's awesome!

    Katherine- Yes, let's go virtual shopping together. I love ruching!! Work what you got girl :)

    Corinne- My sister in lingerie wear. My husband will send me links of stuff he likes, it is interesting to see his tastes. Love that you guys window shop together!

    Hi Ronnie, thanks for stopping by.

    Penelope- Hugs back to you! I love my Muppet panties, it's impossible to have a bad day with Muppet panties on :)

  13. Wow. Those are some sexy panties. It's no secret, lingerie is hot and the fastest way to feel sexy.

    Hi :) I just started following you (via email). So ... this is my first comment to you.

    I haven't been in love with VS for a quite some time. They have a few nice things here and there, but the quality has gone down a lot over the years (not just the style). As far as I can remember though, they've always sold clothing, shoes, etc., in their catalogues. I'm going back to the late 1980s when I first started flipping through their pages. Ahhh, the Jill Goodacre and Frederique Van Der Wal days. :D The brick and mortar shops never used to, so I am surprised to hear that they have.

    A couple of months ago I got some really pretty and some sexy stuff at La Petit Coquette in NY (where I live). Here's a link to one of the sexier things I got. It's so hot. Those front straps come up pretty high, so if you're wearing a v-neck sweater or something similar, they will peep out beautifully and artfully. And the bra comes in lots of colors, not just black (which is actually a bit lacy).


    You can order from them online, which is great. But not so great because, naturally, you cannot try before you buy. Yes, they are a bit costlier than VS, but the quality is far superior and they'll last much longer. For me it was all a bit of a splurge. I was in dire need of new underthingies. But I went shopping pretty close to my birthday, so it was doubly justified. Then again, lingerie need not be justified. LOL Some items are comparably priced to VS. Maybe if you see something you like on this webpage, you can find out where it's being sold near you.

    If you are in a vintage, pin-up girl mood, take a peek at What Katie Did. They have pretty cute and fun vintage-inspired replicas. http://www.whatkatiedid.com/en_us/

    If you want to see some really high-end, gorgeous girlie underpinning, visit Agent Provocateur's webpage. They are a *tad* (a-hem) pricey so I am not suggesting you forgo this month's rent or car payment to acquire some of these delights, but it *is* fun to "window" shop :D

    I do like Frederick's of Hollywood! I love the piece you picked out. It's a fave of mine. Not that I own it ... yet. They used to have to most adorable *cotton* cheekie undies. They were trimmed in lace and had a peep-hole in the back. Heehee. The quality of the cotton was actually quite good. Sexy *and* very comfy! Win-win. I was so sad when I had to get rid of my final pair a few years ago. Oh, and I am still kicking myself for getting rid of the Dita Von Teese catalogue from a few years back. One of these days I am going to order myself a pair of their crotchless panties ... or two, or six. Haha.

    Someday, I'll gather the guts to go in here:
    http://purplepassion.com/Home.htm Looks like fun : D

  15. Hi Little Miss MerFaery! Thanks for stopping by :)

    I love that you left me some links. I will definitely be window shopping as I think much of this is out of my price range.

    But I love looking! Thanks so much and nice to meet you. Talk to you again soon.

  16. Ah, yes. Nothing wrong with looking. ; ) It's always free -- at least, let's hope it stays that way! : D I dream of wearing something from Agent P. and darn it, *someday* I will! LOL
    So nice to meet you, too. Love your writing : )
