What’s Under Your Clothes Matters

You remember when you were younger plus size womens clothes and your mom told you never to leave the house wearing dirty or unseemly underwear? She was right.

We live in a very interconnected world where everything  you do, say or think affects your reality. Each of us possesses an energy, a life force present in the world, and how we think and behave determines not only how others perceive us, but how we perceive ourselves.

So  how does this apply to underwear? More than you think actually.

Everything that you do is communicating something, either consciously, subconsciously, or both. At the basic level, what you wear beneath your clothes makes you feel more confident and self-assured, which will extend to every aspect of your life.

How the French Do Lingerie

Do you want to know how France came to be associated with romance? Many people believe it’s the wine, the food, or the language. I believe it’s something different, I think it has more to do with the lingerie.

You can hardly go five steps on the streets of Paris, or anywhere else in the country for that matter, without running into a lingerie store. Their elegantly designed display windows show a wondrous collection of brassieres, corsets, panties, and just about anything else you could imagine. To many American woman, to be continually confronted with scantily clad mannequins sporting garments they would only dream of wearing, seems somehow excessive.

As a culture, the French adore beautiful unmentionables. So much so that they spend about a fifth of their clothing budget on lingerie. Once again, this may seem excessive to many of you, but consider something.

Think back to the last time you bought something pretty for yourself. Something that someone may or may not have seen, whether it was a lacy bra or shimmery negligé. How did it make you feel when you put it on for the first time? Did you feel beautiful? Did it make you feel more confident? This isn’t a coincidence. If a woman is wearing something she feels beautiful in, whether it’s out in the open or underneath her clothing, she sends a very powerful message to herself and the world, a message which manifests itself as a combination of confidence and intrigue.

The French know this instinctively, and make it a part of their lives. Because if a woman feels more confident, she’ll act more confidently. What you wear beneath your clothes goes a long way towards making that possible.

Wear Lingerie for You

Sure, if you’ve got a hot date you’re going to put more thought into what bra and panties you leave the house in, but you should start to make a habit of doing this anyway. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, just seeing someone casually, or if you have been in a relationship for a long time, your unmentionables are sending a message. Wearing great lingerie tells your subconscious that you think your worth it, in the same way that wearing distressed undergarments communicates the opposite.

So take a long look at your underwear drawer. It’s time to say farewell to some of the unmentionable unmentionables. If it’s been there for years, throw it out. It’s carrying old energy from an old you. Next, remove anything that’s damaged or well-worn. If you’d be ashamed to have anyone see you wearing it, you don’t need it. You shouldn’t have to see yourself wearing it either.

bikini-clad Instagram photos spark frenzy

Farrah Abraham’s lingerie manufacturer fans are not buying into her claims that she is not pregnant with baby no. 2. Instead, followers of the Teen Mom star have bombarded the comments section of her latest bikini-clad photos with a bunch of queries about her rumoured pregnancy.

The reality star attracted  the flurry of questions after she shared some sun-kissed photographs of herself on Instagram. With the latest pictures that show Farrah donning two different bikinis, the reality star also seems to be doing some sort of promotions.

“Girls, I’m coming in HOT,” she wrote along with the sunny snaps adding, “I’m talking bloat-free, flat tummy, and feeling confident enough not to hide in sweat pants… A picture is worth a 1000 words, but clearly we just need 3.”

No sooner had  the 26-year-old shared the promotional photos, than fans flocked to social media with all sorts of questions. Mostly people were intrigued about her alleged “baby bump” as the pregnancy chatter continues to swirl.

“Wait. I thought she was pregnant,” one Instagram user commented. A second observer wrote, “Hiding that baby bump.”

“Lol, funny how you keep pushing this flat tummy tea yet the world says your pregnant?” another follower shared.

“There’s only two pics and neither of them show your ‘flat tummy’.

“Neither of these pictures show your stomach?Addressing the whirlwind baby rumours, the reality star recently told E! News that she’s neither pregnant nor engaged. “No. I am not,” she said. “I hope I don’t look pregnant! I am not engaged that’s why I am single.Maybe I’ll meet a new guy here?”

Farrah, who appears on the new MTV show Love Socially, also opened up about finding love on TV.

“I hope I find [love] this summer. The new show is called Love Socially. It’s based with MTV UK and International, so a division of Teen Mom. [It will be filmed] in Australia, London and four other countries with four other celebrities,” she told Us Weekly.

‘Underwear bomber’ pleads guilty to attempted murder of 289 plane passengers

The so-called “underwear bomber”  has pleaded guilty to trying to blow up a US-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009, saying he had sought to avenge the killing of innocent Muslims.

In a six-minute  speech to a shocked courtroom on Wednesday on the second day of his high profile-trial in Detroit, Michigan, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab insisted his actions were righteous and that the true crime was US foreign policy.

‘Underwear bomber’ pleads guilty Dreamliner performs near-vertical take-off Disneyland sky turned yellow from … Catalan leader puts independence on hold “I am guilty of this count in US law but not in the Koran,” the 25-year-old Nigerian said as he confessed to trying to kill 289 people on a packed transatlantic airliner using explosives hidden in his underwear.

“The United States should be warned that if they continue and persist in promoting the blasphemy of Mohammed and the US continues to kill and support those who kill innocent Muslims then the US should await a great calamity through the hands of the Mujahedeen… or God.”

The botched plot, which US officials  say was the work of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, failed because the explosives did not fully detonate and instead caused a fireball.

Passengers and crew members were able to restrain Abdulmutallab and put out the fire as the Northwest flight from Amsterdam made an emergency landing in Detroit on December 25, 2009.

Since many of the counts Abdulmutallab pleaded guilty to carry mandatory minimum sentences of 30 years without parole which must be served consecutively, he is expected to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Abdulmutallab kept his description of how he carried out the plot to the absolute minimum required to satisfy the judge that he was indeed guilty of all charges.

Reading calmly from a prepared speech, he stood straight in a black skullcap, gold tunic and blazer.

Abdulmutallab said he “had an agreement with at least one person” to attack the US in retaliation for US support for Israel and in revenge for the killing of innocent Muslims in Palestine, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and beyond.

“I carried with me an explosive device onto Flight Northwest 253, again to avenge my fellow Muslims,” said Abdulmutallab, who has confirmed that he travelled to Yemen for al-Qaeda training prior to the attack.

“I attempted to use an explosive device, which under US law is called a weapon of mass destruction, which I call a blessed weapon to save the lives of innocent Muslims for the US used weapons of mass destruction on innocent Muslims,” he told the court.

I attempted to use an explosive device, which under US law is called a weapon of mass destruction, which I call a blessed weapon to save the lives of innocent Muslims for the US used weapons of mass destruction on innocent Muslims

“If I said I did it, but the American people are guilty of the sin and [President Barack] Obama should pay for the crime the court would not accept that,” he said.

“However, according to US law which is unjust … my actions make me guilty to a crime.”

The botched operation triggered global alarm and led the United States to adopt stringent new screening and security measures, including controversial pat-downs at airports and a massive expansion of the no-fly list.

It also cast a spotlight on Yemen, where al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) is increasingly seen by US officials as a threat comparable to the terror network’s core leadership in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The reputation of the US intelligence services also took a hit because Abdulmutallab’s father, a prominent Nigerian banker, had warned the CIA about his son’s growing radicalisation.

Abdulmutallab’s calm and respectful demeanour on Wednesday was in sharp contrast to his disruptive behaviour during jury selection.

This was marked by incendiary outbursts, including a pledge that militants will wipe out “the cancer US,” and praise for radical al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi and former leader Osama bin Laden, both killed in US raids.

Abdulmutallab is to be sentenced on January 12.

His court-appointed standby counsel said he had urged the young man to see the trial through in hopes of evading convictions on at least some of the eight charges.

“Certainly no lawyer will recommend a plea to life without parole,” he told reporters. However, Abdulmutallab was not interested in trying to avoid spending the rest of his life behind bars.

“He wanted to say something for some time and that was satisfying to him,” Chambers said.

The Great Pants Debate: Sexy large breast lingerie

Some women say large breast lingerie  that they only ever wear sexy undies, while others have a knicker drawer that Bridget Jones herself would be proud of. Some say that they like to wear thongs, while others love a boxer brief – but what do you think? Do you like sexy pants or comfy pants? Or have you managed to find a great multi-tasking knicker? Below, we’ll go through the merits of both – and we’ll figure out if there truly is a comfy yet sexy pair of pants.

When you mention sexy underwear, people immediately think of texture – and the use of less fabric. Lace is a popular choice for sexy undies, but it can be a little scratchy. Silk, on the other hand, is super soft, slinky and sexy – and it can actually be very comfortable. Probably the most popular sexy pant is the thong – they tend to be cut fairly low on the hip, and the back of the pants are cut around the buttocks, rather than over the buttocks. Although thongs can be sexy, they can be fairly uncomfortable, especially if they’re a little small or in a material such as lace. Sexy knickers also tend to be cut fairly low

on the hips, which in itself can be fairly uncomfortable – they can roll down. If you’re a fan of sexy knickers but you want them to be a little more comfy, try buying them a size or two up. The fabric will be less likely to irritate your skin and the cut of the pants will be less likely to dig into your skin or pinch you. Viola – sexy knickers that are just that little bit more comfortable.

People often think of comfy pants as being big knickers – but that doesn’t have to be the case. Most comfy knickers tend to be made of cotton, such as Sloggis. It’s a lightweight, breathable material that won’t irritate your skin. Pants that are cut higher on the waist are also more comfortable, as are pants that are cut lower on the legs. High leg briefs, for example, could dig into the tops of your thighs, but boxer briefs will be cut a little larger to accommodate the tops of your legs. As for your bra, bras that are wired and lacy can be a little uncomfortable – it’s fairly common for the wire to slip out of the cup, but if you opt for a non-wired, cotton bra, you don’t have to deal with uncomfortable prodding and poking from bra wire gone astray. However, wired bras tend to be more supportive, so they’re a better choice for ladies with a bigger bust.

If you’re looking for large breast lingerie knickers that are sexy and comfy, why not try cotton pants with lace inserts? That way, you still get the softness of the cotton, but the lace adds a little sex appeal. You could also experiment with colour, too. Also, remember that it’s not necessarily about the way that the underwear looks – if your pants make you feel good, smooth out lumps and bumps and make you feel more confident, you’ll feel sexier right away!
