Merry Christmas, Lingeristas!

Merry Christmas to all of our dear, Lingeristas!

The following are some Christmas quotes that feel timeless and classic.

"Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart." ~ Washington Irving

"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air." ~ W.T. Ellis

"Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve. Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine, no matter your age." ~ Carrie Latet
"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!" ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen." ~ Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby
Images on this post are of Monica, our delightful Eve's Apples lingerie model, who will be gracing our website launching on New Year's Day, January 1, 2010!

Monica showed up to the shoot, wearing an ill-fitting bra and thinking that she was a 36A. After getting her fitted, she was thrilled to see that she's a 32B and looks gorgeous in everything we put her in during the shoot! It wasn't long before she was "Celebrating Her Inner Eve." She looks so spectacular in this red Lucia Plunge Bra (top image) and matching lace boyshorts that I had to send her home in it!

Last year, we had a contest for one lucky winner of this red Lucia bra and panty set by The Little Bra Company. It was the biggest contest turn out still to date! If you like this lingerie set, you can find it on New Year's Day on our new online lingerie boutique dedicated to smaller busted women (bra sizes 28AA - 36B and 32C).

Monica (in the second image) is wearing a white Retro India Bralette by Eberjey. Both panty sets can be found on our lingerie website ( on January 1, 2010.

Have a wonderful holiday, my dear Lingeristas!

Vintage Lingerie Commercials: Part 1 ~ Apple Bra

Before there was Eve's Apples Lingerie and blog there was the Apple Bra, in bra sizes 32A - 36C, that came out sometime around 1980. The video below shows the Apple Bra commercial that circulated on t.v. at the time.

Men's Lingerie Gift Tips: When Shopping for Her ~ Part 5

Thanks to Evie, our stellar Eve's Apples' Correspondent, for telling us about lingerie gift giving tips to men written by a man for their wives, girlfriends and signifcant others.

In the Seattle Times, Evie discovered "Spice up your holidays: A guy's guide to shopping for lingerie gifts," by Geoff Carter with the Seattle Times.

Geoff writes, "...Attention all fellers: As they now stand, your plans to buy a gift of frilly lingerie for your significant other are doomed to flop and fail. You're probably looking at lingerie Web sites right now, armed only with a vague idea of your sweetheart's sizes (no, no, stop looking at your cupped hands), and an even more vague notion of what she'd actually like to wear, a notion that's inextricably rooted in the kind of lingerie you want to see in the bedroom: lacy, see-through, possibly evaporating.

I know all this because I'm one of you: I'm buying lingerie for my girl for the first time ever. My need to research every purchase to within an inch of its life brought me to Jennifer Carroll, owner of Fremont lingerie boutique Bellefleur and co-author of "Underneath It All: A Girl's Guide to Buying, Wearing and Loving Lingerie." With her help, I have been able to break down this daunting process into a handful of steps that should be familiar to any scrubby dude who's ever played a first-person shooter.

Do some reconnaissance. Take a peek inside your significant other's underwear or lingerie drawer and look up her bra size, which is a number followed by a letter. Then look at the panty size, which should be small, medium or large. Do not try to measure her yourself: "A man coming at you with a measuring tape is a little frightening," Carroll says. "Asking her for her sizes is completely fine." Carroll also advises looking up your girl's clothing size (size 6, size 8 and so on), which can be used to size her up for sleepwear...."

Lingerie & Tutus

Tutus, worn as a fashionably flirty skirt for some and a classic uniform for serious ballerinas, always reminds me of lingerie. One of my all time favorite panties was the pink, ruffly tutu panty by Jezebel a couple years ago, embracing all the feminine delight and details that make a tutu fun. The Huit lingerie 2009 Spring Collection (images on this page) is filled with fun details echoing back to tutus and ballerinas.

In the Tutu Much post, Mme. Piplette of A La Folie recounts a childhood Christmas in which she we left pondering over her naughty and nice qualities when Santa brought presents for all the children accept her and another girl she was sure that she'd see later in group therapy. With an obsession, close to Messy Marvin in A Christmas Story, Mme. Piplette's Red Ryder BB gun was a dainty, mulit-layered, twirl inspiring tutu.

"...I sat alone in my homemade green velvet culotte and vest set, sans cadeau. I was so embarrassed, I wanted to die... what had I done that was so bad? Was it because I snuck into the pantry and ate all the chocolate crayons my mom had bought for my sister's birthday? No, it was probably because I had forgotten to let that butterfly go and it died in my bug jar. It was an accident, I swear! But I was a murderess, and Santa knew it...."

To read about Mme. Piplette's classic holiday experience with Santa and the missing tutu, click on
Tutu Much.

Remember, you've never to young or old to pull out a tutu for fun or play.
