Sexy High Heels and The Right Outfit

It is a well known fact that the right pair of high heels can really pull an outfit together, and the wrong pair can make your outfit look, well, wrong. There are several things to consider when you are choosing the perfect pair of shoes, and this article will take a look at these factors, and give you tips to help ensure that you, your outfit, and your heels, look fabulous.

There are many different types of high heels, including pumps, platforms, sandals, and high heeled boots, all of them sexy, and all of them designed to produce a different effect. Pumps are the most classic high heel shoes, and women have been wearing them for years to make themselves look taller, and to make their legs look longer and leaner as well. Pumps work well for professional events, as well as events like weddings, and family reunions where a less ostentatious style is best.

Platform shoes are perfect for women who want to feel taller and make their legs look longer. The higher the platform, though, the more difficult it will be to walk in the shoes, at least initially, so allow yourself some extra time to break them in, so to speak. Platforms are best for fun, trendy outfits, like mini dresses, short skirts, and even jeans.

Sandals with heels are very, very, sexy, and very versatile as well. Most sandals, including flip flops, which fall under the category of high heeled shoes, have small, delicate heels, called kitten heels, which gives them a look that can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your preferences.

A unique high heel look can be achieved by wearing high heel boots. Whether thigh high or stiletto, the right pair of high heel boots looks perfect under medium length or short skirts, jeans, or dress pants.

When you are choosing high heel shoes, it is a good idea to keep the occasion for which they will be worn in mind. If the event or occasion requires a lot of walking or running or dancing, a lower heeled high heel is probably best. While you are at it, do not forget to experiment with your color choices. Basic black always works, but do not underestimate the sex appeal of a red, or other brightly hued shoe, either.

Above all, remember that a sexy high heel only works if you know how to work it. Be confident, have fun, and make sure to choose shoes that are comfortable as well as aesthetically pleasing, and you will look your best in whichever pair of high heeled shoes you choose.

 


Before You Buy Your Bustier Find Your Correct Bra Size

The right bustier can help a woman feel both sexy and beautiful, but the wrong size can make a woman feel like they are either squeezed in, or completely drowning in fabric. The culprit in either of these situations is incorrect bra size. It has been estimated that 80 percent of women are wearing a bra that is either too big or too small, or does not offer enough support, even if it is the correct size. Before you buy your next bustier read on to find out more about choosing the right bra size.

Perfectly fitting bras and lingerie molds and shapes the body, as well as providing support and figure enhancement. Improperly fitting lingerie does the exact opposite.

Common sense says, if you have a bra that fits properly, that bra is an accurate representation of your bra size, but it is important to keep in mind that sizing varies between manufacturers. It is usually obvious that when you find a bra or a bustier that does not fit properly, but there are other signs that a bra or bustier just is not the right fit as well. Take a look at the cups, and if you find that you do not quite fill them, you need a smaller size. On the other hand, if the edges of the cups do not lie flat against the sides of your breasts, you could probably stand to go up a size.

If the center panel of the bra does not lie flat, this is also a sign that either the cup size is too small, or that that e panel may not be large enough to cover the separation between your breasts. If you have a minimizer, however, do not worry if it seems to fit but does not seem to meet the above criteria, since minimizers usually do not rest against the breastbone.

Pay attention to the straps of your bra and or bustier as well. If the straps are always falling, consider a different strap style. If the straps dig into your shoulders, it might be time to go down a band size.

Keep in mind that when you decide to go up a cup size, the band size stays the same, but when you go up a band size, your cup size will increase as well. Buying the perfect bra can greatly enhance and improve your appearance, and ensure that you look just right in that sexy, new bustier as well.

 


A Brief History Behind The Sexy Evening Gown

The first evening gown was decidedly not very sexy, at least by modern standards. In the 19th Century, when going out to theatres and opera houses was very fashionable among people of a certain class, evening gowns were long and heavy, the skirts reaching the floor, and the necklines high and the sleeves long. Of course, decetolage played a part in some dress styles, but the hems of the evening gowns really remained long until about 1920, when they rose daringly above the knee, and necklines dipped down as far as possible.

This trend of decidedly sexy evening gown styles continued through WWII, when fabric became scarce, and dress hems were raised out of necessity. The 1950s saw the advent of that quintessential sexy evening gown, the cocktail dress. In the 1960s, hemlines for all types of dresses and skirts were raised to a new height with some only just long enough to sufficiently cover underwear. Slits on the sides of skirts and dresses were not uncommon, either. Hem and necklines continued to become more varied as the seventies saw the advent of the wrap dress, and other, and further variations on the sexy evening gown.

In the 21st Century, women are decidedly freer to express themselves through dress than at any other time in history. Gone are binding whale bone corsets and crinolines, voluminous petticoats, and bustles. Todays corsets are light and comfortable, and todays dresses can be as sheer, curve hugging, short, and as sexy as the wearer chooses. Evening gowns are not always the traditionally cut outfits meant to be worn at corporate functions and stuffy state dinners anymore either. Women can wear shockingly sexy evening gowns when they are out having fun, or even shockingly sexier evening gowns when they are at home having fun, and the sky is truly the limit.

When you are looking for the perfect sexy evening gown, whatever the occasion, why not order one online? It is fast, easy, and fun, and, if you take the time to record all of your measurements before you start shopping, much less time consuming than dragging armload after armload of possibilities with you into the dressing room. Just make sure, again, that you take your hip, chest, and other applicable measurements before you start, and keep in mind that size designations like Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, and Plus Size can vary, so do not assume that you are automatically a certain size, without first comparing it to the measurement designations on the manufacturers sizing chart.

Whichever sexy evening gown you choose, have fun shopping.
