Do You Want to Get Noticed this New Year's Eve? Let Secret Drawers Help You Dress to Impress!

Now that everyone's tummy is fully of turkey and the armfuls of crinkled, wrapping paper are in the recycle bin, people turn their thoughts to New Year's Eve -- New Year's Eve is only days away, you know. And even though you might have picked out the perfect outfit that will sparkle and shine in any room, that outfit just isn't complete without a visit to Secret Drawers Lingerie.


Well that's simple. We have the undergarments that are going to make your outside look its best as you dress from the inside out.

We have talked and talked about the importance of the right bra and how the wrong bra can actually make you look 10 pounds heavier! But there is more to holiday dressing than the bra that you choose to wear.

For example, take Spanx. We recently got in an array of new pieces in a lighter control that are perfect in addition to our existing pieces with stronger support. No matter what type of support you choose, these control pieces will give you a nip and tuck without the need for an appointment or a knife. Get rid of those bulges, lines, and dreaded back fat with pieces that will cover you from chest to hemline.

And no dress is complete without the perfect pantyhose to set off the look. Whether you are looking for flirty and fun, sophisticated and unique or just downright sexy, we have them all.

In short, you haven't got a completed look until you decide on your foundation garments. They are going to give you the best lines, and look, of the year.

Get Yourself a Little Something This Christmas

Now that you've bought (hopefully) everyone else's gifts, have you considered getting yourself a little something this Christmas? Maybe you need a new colour of Hanky Panky thong (scarlet red for Christmas?) or maybe a slinky look that you can pop into his stocking might work for you. Or, of course, you can consider yourself planted firmly on the nice list by getting yourself a new, fashionable bra or comfy, lounge-worthy pajamas. Or consider the fine filigree top as shown here or in a camisole -- that should light up under that tree.

And if you still need a little something for him, try Naked. Once a man goes Naked, he often never goes back to those old, unfashionable undies. 

In short, we have all your favorites and your favorites-to-be so pop in and fill your own stocking with what you really want this year.

Chantelle's Graphic Bra in Graphite

Graphite, as a colour, is in this winter, and luckily for all, Chantelle has brought out a piece that will flatter and fit a wide range of sizes and shapes.

Today we introduce C Graphique by Chantelle. This is a three-quarter, or demi, bra with medium coverage. This means it's going to give you lift and support but also great cleavage. The C Graphique cups are knit and non-padded. This stunner has an overlapping graphic pattern on the bottom of the cups with a classic grey fabric on top. It's set off by a nude edging and a glowing Chantelle emblem at the breastbone.

Chantelle's C Graphique will fit a wide variety of shapes thanks to a subtle stretch in the top of the cups. This design is available right now in sizes 34-40, cups B-G. Try on this French design to see the rounded and uplifted shape it will give you.

How Lingerie Can Ease Your (and His) Holiday Stress

At Secret Drawers Lingerie, we love the holiday season. We love the Christmas trees, the holiday spirit and all the merriment it brings. The one thing that’s not so great about it, though, is the stress some people feel about fulfilling all the items on their Christmas lists. Luckily, we’re here to help you with that.

  1. Make a “loves” list for your guy. We all know that the men in our lives can sometimes have trouble picking out the perfect gift – so why not help them out by registering what you love with us at Secret Drawers Lingerie? We’re happy to keep a gift registry on file that includes what you love and your sizing so that your partner can just pop by and pick what tickles his fancy.
  2. Give lingerie to your man. True, we generally think about our own stockings stuffed with frilly underthings for Christmas but I suspect that he would be just as happy seeing those items in a package for him with the promise of playful times to come.
  3. Don’t forget to get Naked. While we tend to think about lingerie for women over the holiday season, don’t forget, he deserves superior underthings too. Once men try our Italian microfiber Naked line, many can’t go back to anything less.
  4. Shop now! We hate to put pressure on you, but the fact is, selection and sizes do go quickly during this time of year so coming by sooner is much better than later. If you wait until a last minute shop we just might not have what you love. (And keep in mind, it’s too close to Christmas to have anything ordered in.)
And one more holiday shopping tip: if you’re looking to spruce up your holiday look, try a new pair of patterned tights. Bring your dress with you so you can see what your newly completed look will look like. And if you need control pieces like Spanx? Then it’s really critical to bring your dress with you. We have so many types of control pieces that finding what makes you look your very best requires trying things on under your, specific garment. And with that, we’d like to simply wish you all a glorious holiday season and we look forward to seeing you soon.

New Chantelle - The Vendome - Celebrates a Gemstone Theme

Chantelle's pieces are designed in France, and we can definitely see the hand of the French at work. They often provide classic lines with modern themes as seen in today's feature: the Vendome. The Vendome, by Chantelle, provides full coverage and a great uplift in a wide range of sizes all while celebrating a modern take on the gemstone.

This Chantelle piece is being offered in ultra nude, a colour that will disappear under even light-coloured fabrics for most. It is available in sizes 34-44, cups B-H, making it perfect for almost anyone looking for a fashionable look that supports and defines.

We love the details the Vendome offers like embroidered, striking straps, a fun and unique pattern on the cup and a small jewel at the breastbone. Of course, in order to truly appreciate the way this design makes you look and feel, you have to wear it, so stop by today and give it a try.

bSoft PJs and Nightshirts and Robes , Oh My!

Now is the time. Now is the time to come into Secret Drawers Lingerie and get your pjs, nightshirts and robes to fulfill all your holiday needs. Why now? Well, that's easy; because shortly, we tend to experience a run on sleepwear and your choices will be limited accordingly.

We have previously mentioned Ringella pjs and Diamond Tea and Kenan robes and today we add bSoft to that collection of lines.

bSoft is unique in that it is made from a bamboo-cotton flannel (70% bamboo). Bamboo is a great choice for people looking to minimize their impact on the planet as it's fully biodegradable and made from a renewable resource. And bamboo is known to wick moisture away from the body keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter making bSoft an investment in your comfort all year long.

This bSoft sleepwear collection has coordinating pjs, robes and nightshirts available in a variety of patterns of which this fleur de lis design is only one. The bamboo in these bSoft pieces is comparable to a blend of cashmere and silk. But don't take our word for it -- come in and feel it for yourself! bSoft nightshirts are approximately 36 inches long and have a pocket under the left shoulder.

Today's featured Ringella pjs are a v-neck design. These pajamas are made from a soft jersey, meaning they stretch, but are of premier quality so they keep their shape, wash after wash. A cute extra feature is the pockets on either side of the striped pants.

New 3/4 Robe in Graphite

While some people don't like to be reminded of it, winter is well on it's way. As we enjoy the last vestiges of the warm weather, we should probably all also be pulling out our woolies.

But, to make things feel a little easier, we suggest you also bring out your cozy robes that may have been too toasty for the summer. These can be enjoyed straight out of the shower or around the house. We carry several lines of robes including the (nearly infamous) Diamond Tea, but today's offering is from Kenan's Frou Frou collection: it's a 3/4 robe in graphite.

It may be hard to ferret from the image, but this robe actually has 3/4 sleeves along with a 3/4 length. This is perfect for many women who find the wide cuffs on robes a bother -- these won't get in the way. Also, if you've found that robes are often cut for someone taller than you, this one is guaranteed not to drag along the floor.

This robe is a cotton and model blend, making it easy care  as well as absorbent after a bath. Find this Kenan Frou Frou piece in sizes up to 1X.

The Secret Slimmer You Need for Your Holiday Party Look

Lingerie is often devoted to making you look great when you're not wearing that fancy cocktail frock, but the fact of the matter is, at Secret Drawers Lingerie, we carry pieces that will make you look great in your clothes too. Most people have heard of the line Spanx, but you might not be aware of everything it has to offer.

Of course, we carry standard Spanx pieces like the shorts, cami and high-waisted pieces but we also carry the full slip, featured on the right, and this piece offers some distinct advantages under a dress.

A slip makes the most sense under a dress for the smoothest silhouette, but this slip is special because it is open-busted -- with it, you can wear your own bra. Gone are the days where to achieve a smooth form you had to flatten your bosom. Now, you can tighten and tone and still keep all your womanly curves.

This open-busted Spanx is their most popular silhouette and when you see how it makes you look in your favorite frock, you can see why. Also note, this piece has built-in underwear closed with hook and eyes and a silicone strip at the hem to keep it from rising.

Try this super-sleek look today. And don't forget to bring your party dress with you when you do it so you can see exactly how it will improve your look.

Go to the Opera with Chantelle

Some women look to minimize their cleavage through lingerie, but for those looking to maximize it, we have the Opera, by Chantelle. This design not only makes the most of your bosom, but it also has gold thread woven throughout the floral leaves lace for an extra touch of va va voom.

This demi cup style by Chantelle also has gold hardware detailing at the breastbone and on the straps, which split near the cup into three. And unlike so many other bras, Chantelle treats the band just as fashionably as the cup, as the back is a lycra fishnet lace.

Minimalist Sleepwear as Soft as Skin

Women are always looking for comfortable sleepwear. Of course, "comfortable sleepwear" means different things to different people, but one of the things it pretty much always means is fabric that is soft to the touch and today we bring you a new line: Skin. Skin definitely fits that bill.

The skin pieces we are featuring today are the Sexy Slip (seen right) and its sister piece, the Sexy Gown (not shown). You'll find the slip in a blueish pink called powder and the long gown in aubergine.

Skin pieces are made from a super-soft, stretch, double-layer jersey making them perfect, breathable pieces for sleep or for around the house. They are minimalist with an essence of zen.

And wearing Skin isn't just a statement about fashion but it's also a statement about sustainability as Skin works to create a holistic product that reflects the company's vision of environmental responsibility and social fairness.

Find the slip, gown, and other Skin pieces in-store now in sizes S-XL.

Blush's Sweetest Sin

At Secret Drawers Lingerie we consider lingerie the farthest thing from a sin, but what you do while you're in it? Well, that might be considered a sweet sin.

This breathtaking chemise is 31 inches long and has a one-quarter underwire for subtle lift and shaping. The cups are lined and trimmed in scalloped lace. There is a hook and eye closure at the back and adjustable straps for the perfect fit. There is also an alluring keyhole in the back for additional sizzle.

What Every Bride Needs to Know about Lingerie for the Big Day

Every bride wants to look her best at her wedding, and lingerie can help you achieve that, if you know what you’re doing.

The most important thing to know is that you should have two lingerie outfits for the big day: one for under the dress and one for the evening’s escapades. This is because the lingerie that will help you look your best in the dress is not the same as that which helps you look your best out of your dress.

For under the dress, consider shapewear like Spanx. Those are the pieces that are going to nip and tuck and create a smooth silhouette. They’re not necessarily beautiful, but they certainly are effective. When you’re selecting these pieces, keep in mind that your dress may already provide much of the support you need as many dresses now come with built-in corsets and boning. The best thing you can do is bring your dress with you for your lingerie fitting. Then you’ll really know what will work best. And don't forget to leave yourself plenty of time as some special pieces may have to be ordered in.

Then be prepared to change into something svelter for after the wedding. Depending on your preference, this could be a babydoll that skims your curves or a chemise and thong set that accentuates your shape.

One final tip: pick up some Body Tape when you drop by - it's the fashion world's duct tape. It affixes cloth to skin to make sure that you neckline never has a wardrobe malfunction or even cloth to cloth to fix a fallen hem at the last minute. It's a must-have for last minute fixes and for that polished look.

Personalized service at Secret Drawers Lingerie can point out many options for both outfits that will make you look and feel like your best self on a day, and night, you will remember forever.

Sleep Shorts for Summer

Luckily, and not a moment too soon, the sun has decided to make a warming appearance in our little corner of the world. With it you might think of sunscreen, days at the beach or margaritas on the patio in the evening. And when it comes time to slumber, you might think of this: "I'm hot!"

At Secret Drawers Lingerie we can't supply you with sunscreen and you're on your own on the margaritas but we can help you stay cool under the covers with today's featured product: the blue wisteria shorty by BedHead.

We sell a lot of BedHead throughout the year because nothing matches its quality. It's 100% superior quality cotton that never pills, stretches or fades. One pair of these pjs and you'll be sleeping with a smile for seasons to come.

Hanky Panky Babydoll in Periwinkle Silk

Normally, when we talk Hanky Panky, we're talking about their signature lace. And Hanky Panky's lace is what so many people love about their designs but their silk chiffon isn't so bad either.

Today we introduce the Bella Blue Enchanted Babydoll and G-String by Hanky Panky. This piece does include Hanky Panky's signature lace but that lace takes a backseat to silk and embroidery. All together, this creates a glamorous and romantic look with the g-string's outline suggestively visible through the transparent babydoll.

Join us in store and try on this periwinkle piece in sizes small through large.

A New Take on the Look of Lace by Marie Jo

Lace and embroidery are hot, hot, hot this summer and these details inspired the Flynn, by Marie Jo L'Aventure. The Flynn is a contemporary take on these details and it certainly isn't going to be confused with your grandmother's underthings.

The Flynn is available in flamingo - a hip colour that will definitely stand out in your drawers and goes well with pastels. Marie Jo calls this the "perfect t-shirt bra" so if you're looking for something that will be invisible under your thin, summer fabrics, this is the one for you.

The Marie Jo L'Aventure Flynn is available in sizes 34-38, cups A-D. And just as shown in the picture, we have the matching briefs available too, in sizes M-XL.

Yellow Daisies for Spring and for Your Drawers

You may remember the Avero by Marie Jo. You may remember it because it's so striking and so popular here at Secret Drawers Lingerie. It's the design with such a lovely strap, you don't want to hide it behind a modest neckline.

Today we are pleased to announce that Marie Jo's Avero is now available in sol - or sunshine - yellow. Unlike some Avero designs, this one features a two colour design rather than the tone-on-tone, which is more classic.

Find the Avero by Marie Jo in 34-36, cups B-D. And, of course, you have to pick up the matching bottoms in sizes medium-large. Come in and get that splash of colour to brighten your spring today.

Implicitly Stunning by Simone Pérèle

Simone Pérèle brings us some of our hottest designs - and by hot, we don't just mean current and fashionable, we mean hot as in oo la la. Today we're featuring the Implicite line by Simone Pérèle which really goes to prove our point.

Featured here is the Talisman design bra. It's modern and sexy with clean lines and sleek details. The matching thong is stunning with similar lines and a cut-out in the back.

We're testing out the Implicite line by Simone Pérèle and so this piece is only available in-store in sizes 34-36, cups A-B in both black and white. But don't worry, if you love it as much as we suspect you will, we'll be widening the range in the future.
