When I go running I put my iPod in my sports bra—it just makes sense! I don't like to have something attached to my arm and carrying it in my hand messes with my stride; sticking a nano in my cleavage is easy! I'm shocked that more women don't do it. I admit, though, that I sometimes worry that my gym crush might wonder why I have wires coming out of my cleavage, and why I occasionally reach into my shirt and appear to be adjusting my boobs—I'm just skipping a song, I swear! So I'm not sure I'm into the idea of storing not just my iPod, but the entire contents of my purse, inside my bra. That's the concept behind the Cleavage Caddy (via Lemondrop), the signature product of Mazantri Creations, a company that's embraced the bra as storage. The idea of stashing a couple of bills and an ID in your bra isn't new, but the Caddy isn't just for cards and cash—there are compartments for a cellphone, pen, lip gloss—the works.

A site called E-MANcipate has undertaken the noble goal of spreading the joys of pantyhose to the Y-chromosomed sex. Now, I love me some cross-dressers, but I can't help but giggling at e-MANcipate and their conviction that they can show off their legs "in a manly way" with kashmir, haut and schwarz colored stockings.
Butt cleavage panties -- (noun) bikini-style drawers with either a peephole or a lace-up in the back, so named for the "cleavage" view they create "Interesting But Unnecessary!" says fashion/shopping blog SheFinds.com of the lingerie. I have to respectfully disagree with you on that judgment, SheFinds.com: these panties are cute and totally intriguing! As someone who refuses to wear thongs because they're uncomfortable, there's something comforting about saucily showing just a tiny bit more while still being mostly covered. As is the case with all lingerie, some butt cleavage panties are are tawdry-looking, while others are just begging to be unlaced.
"It is very comfortable, it's not heavy or scratchy or anything," the Romanian model who wore the $122,000 underwear down a Singapore runway told Reuters last week. If you've been searching for something to wear with your $12.5 million diamond bra from Victoria's Secret, this thong has your name, along with more than 500 brilliant cut diamonds, all over it.
Brides these days have grown tired with the fairy-tale wedding—from a fashion standpoint, at least. They’d rather feel, “sexy,” “hot,” and even “dangerous,” according to a recent New York Times article. Says the article: “‘Brides today absolutely want to look sexy and glamorous,’ said Mara Urshel, an owner and the president of Kleinfeld, the venerable Manhattan bridal salon. In recent months, the store has seen a spike in demand for plunging necklines and negligee looks, one that has only intensified since the spring bridal collections began arriving in stores.
Today, females hold the most sexual, intellectual and professional power than ever before. They can do just about anything a man can do - and sometimes with a little more grace. When it comes to fashion, the sexiest and most daring women in my eyes, are the ones who look past the skin-tight expectations and cross the gender line. Yes, I'm talking about women dressing in men's clothes.
In regions of the country where prostitution is legal, the Aphrodite Project Platforms are causing quite a stir. These shoes - of which a concept pair are on display at the Museum of Sex in New York City - look like the stereotypical "hooker heels" but are decked out with a panic button and a GPS system.
Is giving orders to a man clad only in his skivvies on your holiday wish list? You’re not alone. And French clothing store Celio is listening. The boutique handpicked 17 guys with a certain je ne sais quoi to act as fit models, who offer to try on items for women buying for their men and unsure of their size. The “Shoppenboys” range from small to XXL, and each proudly wears clearly-labeled caleçons (boxers) when on the job. More than 1,000 men applied for the coveted spots last year, despite the fact that the positions were unpaid. The ’boys now have a website (shoppenboys.com) featuring an online dance contest where hopefuls submit videos of their moves for viewers to grade. While the site is in French, some things transcend language, n’est-ce pas?
Foxy or frumpy? Men and women have different takes on what's hot and what's not in fashion. The surprise? Fashion choices may be biologically-based. Maureen Dempsy investigates. "Guy-hot vs. Girl-hot. Surely you've heard the terms. You could probably point them out on a busy sidewalk. And for purely mass-categorical purposes (warning: stereotype approaching), I'll define the polarity by saying that women fall into one of two subsets: Jessica Simpson? Guy-hot. But Kirsten Dunst? Girl-hot. Done. Kirsten looks adorable all the time, while Jessica perpetually appears as if she's posing for Maxim—in my opinion. But what makes us one way or the other? And are women who dress to impress other women at a disadvantage?. Here's part of the answer: a recent UCLA/University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire study found that women dress more provocatively during ovulation. The study's authors noted that ovulating women wore skirts rather than pants, showed more skin, and, in general, dressed more fashionably."
