From the "Christmas Cheer Has Gotten Out Of Hand" Files: Canadian lingerie company La Senza introduced the Cup Size Choir just in time for the holidays this week. The choir is comprised of models showcasing bra sizes from A to G flirtatiously piping out Deck the Halls while lying on white mattresses. Is this cute or creepy?
Celebrities are always so quick to show off their bling. Take LeAnn Rimes for example. The star flashed her gigantic wedding ring for a fleet of cameras recently, making it a point to get the rock up front and center. (Of course, Rimes was hoping to shoot down rumors that her marriage is also on the rocks but why split ends?) If only Miranda Kerr would show us the same consideration and set the rumors straight as to whether or not she and Orlando Bloom are engaged. The Victoria's Secret model was photographed wearing an engagement-like ring on her left ring finger but is staying mum about her plans to marry. People reported that Kerr's rep, Carlii Lyon, told the magazine "I am aware of the images. However, I am not in a position to comment."

Us romantics subscribe to the notion that, lingerie is a window into a woman's soul. It shows how she feels about herself and how she wants to express herself to her lover. And while communication is essential for any relationship, nowhere does a lover risk potential miscommunication in gift-giving than in the purchase of lingerie! We've all dated someone too bashful to step inside a Victoria's Secret. That's a recipe for under-the-mistletoe rejection! Fortunately, over in England, a shop called John Lewis thoughtfully created a"lingerie academy" for men, complete with leather couches, Wii and free beer, to take the terror out of T&A gift-giving. What are these daring men learning? We scoured the observations of the Times of London's brave reporter and here's the top tips for buying lingerie.
"Toxic bras." It sounds like a 14-year-old boy's bad fantasy porn/slasher movie. But it's one some women are alleging their Victoria's Secret lingerie has become. London's Daily Mail reports several women experienced rashes, welts and in one case, permanent scarring. I really, really hope these women at least got laid for what they went through!
"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.
Victoria's Secret is the world's most famous lingerie brand, that's a fact. But a summer working there taught Rajul Punjabi that it's also great place to observe the female body image and it's self-esteem counterpart. It turns out, irrespective of the facts at hand, that women with enough self-esteem were happy with how they looked. All the thongs, bras, and garters in the store didn't matter as much as what was beneath them... way beneath them.
