Sparkly Sequin Lingerie For Enlightened Men

Updated on May 16, 2010

It's one thing to wear lingerie that is pretty and looks good, it's another thing to wear lingerie that makes you look disco excellent. Sequin lingerie comes in a range of styles and price points to suit everyone from the CEO who just wants to rumba in celebration of the latest hostile takeover, to the humble bus boy who dances for cougars to supplement his meager wages.

Before you start throwing your train-sets and testosterone badges, I'm not saying you have to wear lingerie to be an enlightened man. It's primarily a fun play on words. So let's not get our scratchy cotton boxers in a bunch, shall we?

Sequin lingerie is sort of like that pretty girl in high school, the one that everyone secretly wanted to look like but outwardly looked down on because she was supposed to be 'easy' and someone once said that there was a dancing pole installed in her parents bedroom, and they weren't talking about a builder named Jedrick. What I'm saying is that sequin lingerie is often looked down upon as being sort of trashy, but you can't go past it if you want lingerie that really stands out with pretty sparkle sparkle shine.

If you want to maintain a classic, classier look, darker sequins often appear less trashy than bright gold sequins. Black sequin panties add additional sparkle to an otherwise dour color without people thinking you're auditioning for the next season of Showgirls. On the other hand, if you really want to make a statement, it is hard to go past brash red or glittering gold sequins. The panties pictured are from Shirley of Hollywood, and if that doesn't convince you that sequins can be classy, only a chorus line of Senators will, and I just don't have that sort of pull as yet.

As an alternative to lingerie made out of sequins, there's nothing to stop you getting out the bedazzler you bought on the home shopping network and bedazzling the living heck out of your lingerie. Nothing except for the fact that I think there very well could be some metal on the underside of those bedazzle gems and sharp metal scraps and lingerie don't generally mix very well outside a US black ops secret prison for suspected terrorists, where anything goes. Oh the hilarity! (Seriously though, it's about time the US tax payer stopped funding torture camps. They're so incredibly last season. Think about how much money would be in the national lingerie fund if only Akbar the goat herder wasn't having his fingernails pulled out to the soothing sounds of the screams of other prisoners.)

      The sequins are only on the outside one assumes. Otherwise yes, the discomfort would be quite great.

      They look great, but they sure don't look very comfortable!
