WHEN it comes figure-hugging clothes visible panty lines are an absolute no-no...that's when we reach for a thong. G-strings are a must-have for any woman's wardrobe, but while they may keep your outfit looking fab it can leaves other areas not so fresh. That's right, we are talking about your lady bits, va-jay-jay, hoohah...whatever you call it. Wearing a thong could actually cause a nasty infection, by encouraging bacteria to spread from your bum to your vagina. It could land you with things like thrush or bacterial vaginosis, neither of which you want. Plus, if it moves around under your clothes you increase your risk of irritation - think itchy rashes, ingrown hairs and, in horror situations, tiny cuts to the fragile skin down there. Here's something else that will make your skin crawl...Kim Kardashian was recently snapped wearing a Gucci thong from the Tom Ford spring/summer collection in 1997. It's unclear where she got the thong from, but it sparked concern on social media that … [Read more...] about The gross reason you should NEVER wear a thong…and why going commando is better
Why wear underwear
Katy Balls 15 June 2018 3:47 PM 15 June 2018 3:47 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp The most problematic rebellion Theresa May has suffered this week is not on Brexit and the troublesome EU Withdrawal Bill – but on upskirting. In case you’ve missed it, upskirting is when someone takes a picture up a woman’s skirt without their knowledge. At present, police struggle to pursue such offences as if the woman is wearing underwear then the incident can be deemed not ‘graphic’ enough to be classed as either outraging public decency or as a crime of voyeurism. So, a private members’ bill on the issue – brought to the House of Commons by Liberal Democrat MP Wera Hobhouse – was today set to change all that bring it in line with other voyeurism offences. The government had announced its full support for making ‘upskirting‘ a sexual offence and the woman who started the campaign … [Read more...] about Why has a Tory MP just blocked a move to make upskirting a criminal offence?
FANCY seeing Croydon's most famous export raiding the fridge? Or Naomi Campbell caught with rollers in her locks? A new exhibition featuring gorgeous photographs of supermodels, including Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, is set to go on show at an art gallery. The show, called Ladyland, will be hosted at Opera Gallery in New Bond Street, London, and includes a selection of Ellen von Unwerth’s most iconic photography over the past 30 years. Ms von Unwerth made her name launching the careers of a whole host of supermodels, with images she took appearing on the front cover of Vogue and for fashion brands Dior, Chanel, Rolex and Azzedine Alaïa. And it's easy to see why the stars loved her so much. In one iconic shot Kate Moss kneels outside a fridge - it appeared in Vogue in 1995. In another, from Interview magazine in 1991, Naomi Campbell wears underwear as she chats on the phone - her hair in rollers. Meanwhile, in one brightly coloured-shot Claudia … [Read more...] about Kate Moss raiding the fridge, Naomi Campbell rocking her rollers and Claudia in her underwear: Gorgeous supermodels take centre stage in vintage fashion exhibition
We might be known as Great Britain but as a nation, it turns out we are anything but great when it comes to our cleanliness habits. According to a recent study by clothing retailer Banana Moon, one in five of us will wear our underwear twice before washing it, a quarter of women admitted to wearing their bra five times before chucking it in the machine and six per cent after wearing it a very whiffy 10 times. Jeans also escape the washing basket with one in eight women only washing them, "if they’re visibly stained" according to another survey by clothing company Betty Black. Bed sheets don’t get a good wash either. As humans, we sweat 200ml a night and shed half an ounce of skin each week - a lot of which will fall into our beds – so this makes the warm, moist bed environment an ideal breeding ground for dust mites. The average bed contains 10million of them and their faeces can trigger allergic reactions. Research undertaken by bed company, Dreams, revealed that … [Read more...] about Wearing underwear multiple times before washing, showering infrequently and never changing bed sheets: How Britain became a such a dirty nation
Many great directors have one classic kids’ movie in them. Think Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are or Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Now it’s the turn of Todd Haynes, the American auteur behind Carol, Velvet Goldmine and the Bob Dylan bio I’m Not There. His new film Wonderstruck is based on the 2011 illustrated children’s book by Brian Selznick, who also wrote The Invention of Hugo Cabaret, which was adapted by Martin Scorsese as Hugo, another masterful movie for kids. Haynes’ desire to explore his inner child came in part, he says, from watching the likes of Jonze and Anderson bring their sensibilities to children’s literature. “I thought it would be a really cool thing to do and something I hadn’t done before,” he says, perched on a sofa in London’s Soho Hotel. He ponders whether Anderson et al making films for children was really about them wanting to make a film for their younger selves, … [Read more...] about Todd Haynes on why his new film will get kids to put down their mobile phones
