Ribs, curves and thongs ... our week in lingerie!


It’s always New York where controversies  happen, isn’t it? And this week it’s La Perla New York that’s bought itself a bit of a storm in an AA cup. Well, not so much the cup as the mannequin wearing a red bra.
Spotted by a shopper, the mannequin in question had visible, some might even say, excessively skinny, ribs. The person who took the photo tweeted it with the message, ‘How does #LaPerla think ribs on a mannequin is ok?!’

Good question. Apparently it doesn’t, but by the time La Perla responded, quite a list of twitter users had joined in the controversy, stating the mannequin was awful and gross. Now the lingerie brand has tweeted in turn, saying the mannequin had been removed from the store and that she wouldn’t be used again.


And now for something completely different. Nicki Minaj is famous for the opposite of ribs – her stunning décolletage and wondrous rear end have been assets only slightly less popular than her music and now Ms Minaj has launched an advertisement to support, not her curves, but her wine! She made the ad to feature her Myx Fusions wine label and she was wearing, amongst other items a stunning purple-blue Stella McCartney balconette bra and pantie set, over which she put a fringed skirt (more fringe than skirt, to be honest) and finished the look with a pair of Versace platform shoes.

Her new look, with her natural curls and lovely curves, is definitely a good vintage and for those who have a derriere to admire, taking a leaf from Nicki’s book is a great idea. 


Our favourite bottom-enhancer at present is the Malaguena by Wolbar, which really gives a stunning definition to every rear, and the sheer fabric and dainty bow stop it being even a little bit trashy – it’s a perfect romantic garment which wins votes from women and their lovers – truly a top performer!
One little note – Nicki was apparently nicely oiled up for her video, and we all know that baby oil is the finishing touch of choice of both bodybuilders and beauty contest entrants, but if you want to get the look, it may be better to find a water based body glosser as your bedsheets will probably not recover from being exposed to a lot of baby oil!y.
