Notes on Sexiness…From Fully Clothed to None At All

Filed under: Uncategorized — carolime @ 2:35 am

Ladies, I’m speaking to you here. But, gentlemen, you might want to take notes.

Sex appeal is what sets us apart from the apes, and a skill that should be mandatory for all women. It’s a common misconception that sex appeal is for those you’re trying to attract. Quite wrong, ultimately sexiness is for one person…you. Take heed of the notes below, and let your inner sexy flourish.

Subtle is Better…You don’t need the miniskirt and the revealing top and the stilettos all in the same outfit. Pick one feature and highlight it. Sexiness isn’t so much showing all you’ve got, but showing enough to keep them all curious. There is nothing sexier than leaving much to the imagination. Think outside the box from what is conventionally sexy. If your style is more athletic than smoldering temptress, work with it. Never deny your own style to be sexy, you won’t be comfortable and it won’t translate well.

Frolic In your Undies…Being comfortable in your own skin is the epitome of sexiness. Spend a small amount of time each day walking around the house in just your underwear. If you live with your parents you might want to stay in your room…but nonetheless, get yourself comfortable in your own skin. Flash yourself sizzling looks in any mirror you pass. If you’re having trouble feeling your own sexiness, kick your iTunes into high gear and strut what you’ve got. Yes, you’ll feel ridiculous but that’s a good thing…after all, no one is watching.

Speaking of Underoos…Pick out a super sexy set of undies. It doesn’t matter if anybody other than you is ever going to see them, use them as your secret confidence builder. If you’re stuck as to what lingerie is the sexiest, my pick is the boy short, by far the most flattering fit on any chic. From underwear to bras, to anything else, fit is key. Go a size up from what you wear in pants; nothing puts the brakes on sexiness like awkward bumps and bulges.

And Should The Moment Come…Whether it’s tonight, or ten years from now, the time will come where the clothes come off for someone special. Now is the time to let all of your sexiness out. Unless it’s a heat of the moment occasion (in which case rip those things off) there is nothing sexier than the achingly slow removal of clothing. Every girl should perfect her own strip tease, it’s a handy skill for heated encounters.

You’re Beautiful…There is at least one feature on every person in this world that is beautiful. Find yours, no matter what it is, and flaunt it. We all have days where our skin is a nightmare, our hair refuses to do anything, and you feel like crawling under your blankets until it’s over. Pull yourself up, put on that sexy lingerie and face the world. Confidence is the ultimate form of sexiness.

Notes for the Pros…Interview with Dita Von Teese



  1. I think lacy boyshorts are the sexiest underthings. I like GapBody. Also… have you been to Nancy Koltes Home on King? They have amazing nightgowns.

  3. I love women in lacy boyshorts! Seriously there is nothing hotter to a guy than a woman who has on a pair of boyshorts and has stolen one of his shirts to wear.
