Lingerie censorship, website fails and top tips for summer underwear

Underwear fines for Turkish TV

Turkish television has recently fined two of its TV channels for ‘endangering youth morals’. What did they do - show Last Tango in Paris or the ‘underwear’ highlights from Big Brother? Nope, they were giving a telling off for showing a Victoria’s Secret fashion show on New Year’s Eve when children might be watching. It wasn’t just the costumes (or lack of them) that troubled the TV watchdog, but the dancing. However, Turkey has a strong cultural tradition of special underwear that no rulings seem able to chip away at - for example, wearing red underwear is traditional on New Year’s Eve - for both men and women! Also, a bride-to-be’s lingerie is purchased by her future mother-in-law and other women in the groom’s family - and finally, Turkey is the third largest producer of lingerie in the world!

Website held to ransom by lingerie …

A high school in Utah has been left with a red face after the school’s website domain expired. The school’s Principal was contacted to ask why Tooele High School now appeared to be a catalogue of women in lingerie! The new domain owners asked for nearly $10,000 to buy back the domain name but the school district decided to purchase a new domain instead of buying it back and now the school has started a public information campaign to ensure parents, and children, don't visit the wrong site!

Little Mix underwear success 

Jesy Nelson has once again been a media sensation as she revealed her new tawny blonde hair at Radio 1’s Big Weekend. It wasn’t just the new hairdo that wowed the fans but her appearance in a stunning bikini which showed off her summer tan. Her underwear choices are always super-smart and like all the Little Mix line-up she has an enviable body to display. So are teeny bikinis just for the world’s most beautiful women? We say not. Great bikinis are available to all - it’s just a question of finding exactly the right beachwear for you.

We agree that summer lingerie should always make the most of summer assets, whether that’s a great summer tan, a fantastic new haircut, the relaxed glow that comes from having a wonderful summer holiday, or just a summery mani-pedi. Choosing the right bikini can be crucial, which is why we fell in love with the LolaLuna Bermuda bikini which ticks all the right boxes. We adore the scalloped edges which flatter the breasts, the elegant central decoration which draws the eye, and the thong back which elevates this bikini from cute to sizzlingly sexy!
