12 Days of Christmas: Jean Yu Mini Satin Chemise

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Jean Yu Mini Satin Chemise
I told you things were going to heat up for the last days of our holiday shopping guide! This sleek silk number from Jean Yu is the embodiment of va-va-voom at it's finest. The sheer chiffon panel at the bust and the signature ultra-thin straps differentiates this from any other silk chemise you'll find. Dare to wear it under a long fur coat with big sexy hair even to run errands, à la Carrie Bradshaw.

Satin chemise, $485. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

12 Days of Christmas: ARI DEIN Boxwood Floral Camisole & Shorties

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
ARI DEIN Boxwood Floral Camisole & Shorties
So, I know that my interview with ARI DEIN just posted last week, but we're on the second to last day of Pretty Little Underthings' 12 Days of Christmas. So if you don't understand why I wouldn't have an ARI DEIN piece on the list, you must be insane.

I so love this print, especially on the demi robe (if you're a regular reader, you know my obsession with that robe already), and I love how the camisole and shorties have such a seasonless and timeless style. The adjustable purple straps on the cami and the shorties have the same purple trim down the sides of the shorties, which provide a perfect pop of color. Don't be shy—ask Santa for this one (if the Hanukkah Fairy didn't bring you one this year).

Camisole, $260. Shorties, $195. Available at ARIDEIN.com.

12 Days of Christmas: Maison Close Bel-Ami Mesh Underwire Bra

On the tenth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Maison Close Bel-Ami Mesh Underwire Bra
Alright, three more days of Christmas left, and these gifts are gettin' serious. These are seriously gorgeous, luxe gifts that will make any lady smile mysteriously with happiness.

Remember that amazing Maison Close set from Tempting Tuesdays last month? This is another great bra to wear with that set if you're afraid that the Corset bra will squish your chest flat. The underwire bra also has detachable straps to double as a strapless if you ever need it. As with anything Maison Close, you know the drill—sexy, sheer mesh, this time with fun little keyhole.

Mesh underwire bra, $65. Available at Azaleas NYC.

12 Days of Christmas: Brulee Vamp Collection Corset Soft Bra & Boyshorts

On the ninth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Brulee Vamp Collection Corset Soft Bra & Boyshorts
Alright, four more days of Christmas left, and these gifts are gettin' serious. These are seriously gorgeous, luxe gifts that will make any lady smile mysteriously with happiness.

So with that in mind, today's pick is Brulee's Corset Soft Bra & Boyshorts from their Vamp Collection. These amazingly sexy chevron-stitched silk and mesh pieces pose a conundrum: you won't want to take them off, and you'll look so good in them that your lover won't want to take them off, but then what to do? Oh, right—read a book.

Corset soft bra, $107. Boyshorts, $72. Available at Journelle.com.

12 Days of Christmas: Lace Corset Bra from Mink Pink!


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Jean Yu Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra!

On the eight day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Lace Corset Bra from Mink Pink
I mainly know Mink Pink for their flirty, whimsical ready-to-wear, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this great corset bra from them. Adjustable straps, basic black, underwire cups and eight little hooks hidden inside the placket—what more could you wish for? It's great to wear by itself or under sheer tops, and it won't hit your wallet too hard—not as much as similar items from other designers, at least.

Lace Corset Bra, $58. Available online at UrbanOutfitters.com.

Stella McCartney Knickers of the Week
Come on, you can't say you didn't see this one coming! A seven-knicker set for the seventh day of Christmas? Of course! These aren't your 5-year-old's day of the week undies. These beautiful cotton-silk blend bottoms have a delicate lace trim and different embroidered flowers for every day. 
They come in this fun little box so you'll always have a place to store them. And don't worry—if you wear Tuesday's on a Sunday, no one will know. Maybe.

12 Days of Christmas: Arlotta Classic Cashmere Slippers


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Jean Yu Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra!
On the third day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Thousand Dancers Bralette!
On the fourth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Lounge Lover Travel Babe Set!
On the fifth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Hanky Panky Low-Rise Thong Fiiiiiiive-Pack!
On the sixth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Arlotta Classic Cashmere Slippers (3 Pairs!)
These lovely oatmeal cashmere slides also come in white and heather gray, so I'd like them all please. Actually, white slippers probably aren't too practical, but honestly they're so freaking soft and comfortable that I wouldn't care. I have yet to have the privilege of putting these on my feet—so far I've only (gently) manhandled a pair at Journelle—but I can't wait 'til I meet a man who knows my feet would love some cashmere.

12 Days of Christmas: Hanky Panky Low-Rise Thong 5-Pack!


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Jean Yu Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra!
On the third day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Thousand Dancers Bralette!
On the fourth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Lounge Lover Travel Babe Set!
On the fifth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... 
Hanky Panky Low-Rise Thong 5-Pack
I know that most people, especially men, have an aversion to giving lingerie as a gift because sizing can be tricky. These Hanky Panky low-rise thongs may be the exception to the rule. ONE size fits 2-12, and it's been called the underwear of choice by pregnant women for a reason. One of my girlfriends said that they'll still fit if you gain weight, and when you lose it, they'll still fit! If the lady you're buying for is teeny (sizes 0-4), there are petite options, but this 5-pack should do the trick.

5-Pack, $82. Individually, $18. Available at HankyPanky.com.

12 Days of Christmas: Four-Piece Travel Lounge Set!


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Jean Yu Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra!
On the third day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Thousand Dancers Bralette!
On the fourth day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Travel Babe Lounge Set by Lounge Lover

I love the versatility in this four-piece cashmere/modal blend set from Lounge Lover. You could wear all the pieces at the same time or individually—the tank dress would still look great on its own! A perfect gift idea for the jetsetter who appreciates luxe fabrics and a comfortable flight.

Travel Babe set, $475. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

12 Days of Christmas: A Three-Button Bralette by Thousand Dancers


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... a Jean Yu Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra!
On the third day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... 
Silk Cotton Button Up Crop Claude Digital Print Bralette by Thousand Dancers
When I finally meet my true love, he'll learn that I greatly appreciate small details, like the three buttons on this fabulous bralette. The print has a lot of energy and reminds me of an Impressionist painting, particularly Monet. If I could wear Monet as my underpinnings, well that would just be so fabulous.

Button Up Crop Claude Bralette, on sale $72 AUD (regularly $120 AUD).

12 Days of Christmas: Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra by Jean Yu


On the first day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me... an Eberjey Onesie!
On the second day of Christmas, my hottie gave to me...
Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra by Jean Yu


Let's be serious: I'm sure Eve was more covered up in the Garden of Eden than she would've been in this bra. But this is classic Jean Yu: sheer, nude, and super-delicate.

A perfect gift for the A-cup lady who can appreciate luxurious details like a front clasp and an elastic band in the back. Even the toughest cookie will melt like butter once she sees this one (I sure did!).

Eden Silk-Chiffon Triangle Bra, $320. Available at Net-a-Porter.com.

Hehe, get it? A onesie for the first day of Christmas? Cheesy jokes aside, this adorable bodysuit is sure to please any of the ladies on your gift list. The super-soft jersey and sweet lace details practically guarantees no re-gifting! The bow is just so perfect too, isn't it?

Graceful Edges bodysuit, $68. Available at Anthropologie.com.
