“Fifty Shades” Lingerie Coming to an Underwear Drawer Near You
In the lead up to the hotly anticipated movie, Fifty Shades of Grey is going to be everywhere, even more than before. And now E.L. James, the creator of what’s been called “mommy p0rn”, has teamed up with British lingerie retailer BlueBella to release a line of lingerie, says the Daily Mail.
Want to play the part of blushing virgin? You can slip into a pair of panties with the phrase “Oh my” on the front and back. Or, pick from other popular phrases from the trilogy, like “laters, baby” and “You. Are. Mine.” The collection also includes babydolls and bras and panties with detachable ties for–well, you know. Want to get your man in on the fun, too? Pick him up a pair of “Christian Grey-inspired boxers”.
Says BlueBella founder and CEO, “‘The ‘Fifty Shades effect’ has benefited our business and the books have played a significant role in shifting perceptions of female sensuality.” I guess that shift is that women are childish and willing to buy into any trend. Why a grown woman would want to wear underwear with the very adolescent phrase “laters, baby” on them is beyond me. Other pieces in the collection aren’t so bad; the idea of lingerie with silk restraints (underwear and an adult toy in one!) is pretty cool one but the rest of it? That stuff might just be better left to Anastasia.
Would you buy anything from this collection?
