Sexy Lingerie for the Holidays

Hips and Curves - Red and Black Tapestry Corset - $49; Lace Trim Bustle - $35 ; 11" Shaper Skirt With Garters - $39; Opera Length Stretch Gloves - $16; Satin Pop-Up Hat - $20


Maybe it’s the long, cold nights, maybe it’s snuggling up by the fire, but there’s something about the holidays that puts me in the mood for frilly, sexy lingerie. Hips and Curves is one of my favorite online sources of lingerie, and they’ve got something there for both the naughty and the nice.

The outfit above is currently on my wish list.  My favorite part is the Lace Trim Bustle–seems like it could go with a lot of outfits. Most items at Hips and Curves are available up to size 24, with many items available up to size 28.

I’d love to hear about any sources you’ve found for cute, sexy plus-size lingerie.

“Ruby” Not Renewed by Style for Fifth Season

I just saw this on

The Style network has confirmed to that it has “no plans” to order a fifth season of the reality show, which chronicled the weight-loss trials of charismatic Savannah resident Ruby Gettinger….

The network released the following statement: “We thank Ruby for sharing her inspirational journey with the Style viewers, and we look forward to her serving as a ‘Fight with Style’ Ambassador in the fight against obesity.”

Ruby is rallying the fans on her Facebook page

So, while it looks like Ruby will remain in the public eye, she won’t be a regular on Style. I enjoyed the first few seasons, as the show chronicled a very large woman with a full and active life. I wasn’t as thrilled with this last season–it just didn’t resonate with me as much. However, I would have tuned in for a season 5.

Any thoughts on the end of this show?
