Setting the Mood: 3 Romantic Holiday Must-See Movies

28 Nov

The days are shorter and the nights are colder, so it’s time to snuggle up with your sweetie in your sexiest lingerie and set the mood for a romantic night with some beloved holiday favorites on the DVD or Netflix.

Not all of the movies listed are strictly holiday themed, but they all capture the magic and romance of the season that makes us all want to hug each other a little longer and a little harder. You can even coordinate your plus size lingerie with the movies’ themes!

1) LOVE ACTUALLY – Really you can’t go wrong with this new holiday classic. A collection of holiday vignettes all culminate in a great Mariah Carey ‘All I Want for Christmas’ tribute.

Bonus? Men inexplicably love this movie, too.

Double Bonus? You get to watch Andy Lincoln before he transformed into zombie-king, Rick Grimes! This movie is such a hodgepodge, any lingerie goes – although, I think something with sparkles is in order.

2) BRIDGET JONES DIARY – So I like movies set in the UK? Seriously though, this is a curvy girl’s signature movie, and it just so happens to reach it’s climatic finale during the Christmas/New Year’s holiday.

Mark Darcy is the epitome of dreamy, probably because he was based off of Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy, and who doesn’t love Mr. Darcy? For Bridget, I would definitely view in a pair of ‘genuinely tiny knickers’ – what we, in North America, would call underwear! Epic scene ensues.

3) MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS – Released in 1944, this Judy Garland family classic gave us the Christmas Carol ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ and a great story about the lives and loves of a turn-of-the century family.

With a beautiful finale that begins at a Christmas Eve ball and ends on an early Christmas morning, this is a holiday must-see.

I promise, you will become completely emotionally invested in this little family by the end.  A romantic babydoll or corset will totally set the viewing mood.

Enjoy!

Romance in the Real

23 Sep

Are you a fan of romance novels? Whether or not you enjoy this particular indulgence, statistics show that romance book sales far outpace any other genre of adult fiction. Romance novel sales break a billion dollars annually. What do these numbers tell us about the emotional needs of women? Whether single or married, it’s easy to find yourself in a rut of epic proportions – go to work, come home, clean the house, grocery shop, get up and do it all over again.

Clearly, women are craving romance and adventure, and they are stuck experiencing it vicariously through literature.While reading is a great escape, how do we stop living vicariously and start living romantically in our own lives? This dilemma is especially true for the plus size woman who bears the brunt of our youth obsessed, thin obsessed culture in the bedroom.

Here are a couple of quick and easy suggestions to rediscover romance in your daily life.

Up the romance factor in your boudoir by strategically placing candles for just a touch of fire and light. Candles really do transform a regular room from the same old-same old to a sensual and relaxing retreat. The added bonus? Everyone looks great in candlelight, too.

Wear sexy underwear to the office. You have to feel romantic before ever getting romantic and that starts early in your day. If you’re wearing granny panties to the office, you’re killing your inner romance goddess before she ever gets to come out and play.

 

Sexy underwear set the tone for your day. Trade in a standard brassiere for the coverage and romance factor of a corset.

 

By the time you get home, you’ll be ready to leave the book on the nightstand and engage in a little role play of your own!

Boo-tiful Halloween Inspiration

2 Sep

It’s the time of year when we wait on baited breath for the first cool breezes of fall and the color change on the trees. Soon, we will exchange the flip flops and sundresses of summer for the boots and trendy jackets of fall. Plans for upcoming holidays and sporting events add to our autumn anticipation. First on the list – Halloween fantasy, fun!

The typical Halloween superstore is a nightmare for anyone over the age of 15 if you’re shopping for a full body costume.  

When the ‘extra large’ size fits the typical American woman’s thigh – it’s time for a new game plan.

Luckily, creativity is free and guarantees you far better quality costumes than anything you might find at the local spooky fly-by-night store. Make no mistake, those stores are great for accessories and ideas, but don’t lose your mind and your confidence attempting to squeeze into their version of a French Maid tube top.

The perfect Halloween attire is moonlighting in your lingerie drawer – or your favorite plus size lingerie website!

Want to be a sexy witch?  Start with a basic plus size corset or plus size lingerie in any hot color, add fish nets, a witches’ hat and gloves and bam, you’re ready to go!

Your fantasy isn’t limited to basic go-to costumes either.  When you are using lingerie as the base for your costume, you can go in any direction your heart desires.

Put your creativity to the test, and shop your heart out for body suits, opera gloves, masks, and tiger stripes!

Don’t be afraid to show some curves this Halloween- you are guaranteed to make a few hearts race!
