Guest Post: Bringing Out the Breast in You- Why Your Underwear Is As Important As Your Outerwear

Image: sexontube

We all have that one pair of knickers that have somehow remained in the drawer for about five years. Still worn now and again; regardless of the fact that they look like they've (only just) survived a nuclear holocaust. And you’ll know too that the feeling when you put them on isn't one of confidence, or eroticism. It’s a feeling of necessity, and businesslike functionality. From the outset of the day, there’s no element of pride or excitement as you shimmy on your outfit over the top of a delicious lacy two piece that nips in your waist and pushes your chest and makes you look and feel –fantastic.  
The fact of the matter is, that wearing something a little daring underneath a regular ensemble makes you walk a little taller and smile a little brighter, knowing that the little secret under your blouse would make a delightful surprise to anyone who was lucky enough to see it. Moreover, you wear it because you know that you look good. True beauty does come from the inside, but there’s no shame in pushing a little bit of it out and up.
Good lingerie needn't break the bank. Invest in a properly fitted, pretty bra and for each bra buy four pairs of matching knickers. You needn't bust out a new set every day; just do the knicker-switch. Swap pantyhose a few days a week for hold up stockings and team with a pair of sensible but dramatic heels. This’ll improve your posture no end, and your pins will look simply divine.
If you’re looking into impressing your partner, maybe try something daring, like a corset with a suspender belt; for the more vanilla amongst us maybe a demure negligee. Then toss your clothes to the ground and watch them try not to choke on their own tongue.
From day to day, a good bra and panties will set you off in the morning with a good mood. It’s as simple as silk, lace, and a good mirror.
For special occasions (for you and your partner) ensure that whatever you’re wearing makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you’re trussed up like a Christmas turkey and you feel ridiculous, chances are it’ll ruin any kind of ambiance you were looking to create. It can be liberating to let loose and forget your inhibitions. And ladies, we spend approximately one third of our lives in the bedroom. Wouldn't you rather spend them ruffling the sheets rather than straightening them out?
If you have any advice for newbies regarding rocking sexy lingerie, let us know with the comment box below! We want to know your loves, hates, favorites and guilty pleasures.

Susannah Perez has a passion for fashion and beauty, as well as the science behind it. She has an obsession with lingerie and loves any excuse to dress up!

WorldVision Charity Event! Ends Dec. 9

WorldVision is one of the largest charitable organizations in the world. They help people in need, including the US. I have personally worked with members of this organization here in the US in the past, and while we may not share the same beliefs, I do believe they actually help people that need it most. Click here to learn more about WorldVision and how to donate. 

Whether it’s for the tax deduction or the warm fuzzy feeling giving to others generates, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation over the holiday season. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a survey reported in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

With so many worthy causes, it is difficult to know where the gift can best be used. Gifts to the WorldVision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.
Please consider the unique, life-changing items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog as you start, continue or even complete of your holiday shopping. Here are a few suggestions we would like to offer you:
  • Artisan Beaded Necklace: This glass-bead necklace is handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-strand bracelet.
  • Eco Cold Cup: This popular 16 oz. BPA-free tumbler comes in handy when on the run. Every sip is a reminder of those who’ve been helped.
  • Veggie Tales "Incredible Vegetables" DVD: Heroic adventures and veggie fun for the family movie night! This newest Veggie Tale DVD is an action adventure that teaches kids how to conquer fear through a faith-based message.
  • Plush toys - Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig: Gertie, Chuma and Pallu are available exclusively through World Vision and represent farm animals that are donated to children and families around the world and provide a steady supply of nutritious food and the surplus can be sold for extra income.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
They serve close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Eight lucky readers will receive one of the following: Artisan Beaded Necklace, Eco Cold Cups, Veggie Tales Incredible Vegetables DVD or a set of plush toys (Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig)!

Prenatal Testing: Earlier and More Accurate Than Ever

During the first trimester of pregnancy, expecting parents can determine what the gender is of their baby and whether there are any abnormalities they need to learn about before the baby arrives. Over the past few years, parents have been able to determine their child’s paternity and sex with a maternal blood test. A new blood test is able to determine if there are distinct chromosomal abnormalities as early as nine weeks into the pregnancy.

How it Works

Within the mother’s blood, there are small amounts of her unborn baby’s DNA. When that DNA is extracted, a mapping process of the human gene can help predict a number of conditions and traits that bring the baby’s makeup together. Once the genetic link is located, there is no reason why a test should not be able to detect the problem.

Misuse of Technology

As this technology enters into the world, people tend to use it for the wrong reasons. One of those reasons is that people will use the technology to abort children who are not of the gender they desire. Even though the tests to determine chromosomal abnormalities are not for determining the gender of the baby, it can be difficult to miss the gender component when reviewing the DNA. Parents have the option to opt out of receiving that information.

Different Chromosomal Abnormalities

Out of the different chromosomal abnormalities that the test can detect, two of those have an extremely low rate of survival. In situations where the baby has trisomy 18 or trisomy 13, the fatality rate is extremely high. Half of all those with trisomy 18 do not live past their first week or life, if they make it to term at all. Eighty percent of those with trisomy 13 do not survive long enough to reach their first birthday. Earlier testing provides the parents with the necessary time to prepare for the unfortunate outcome that awaits them.
Trisomy 13 and monosomy X are not all a guaranteed death sentence. Although there are different mental and physical challenges associated with these chromosomal abnormalities, numerous groups exist to help individuals understand what they are dealing with and how to help them have a life that is fulfilling and rewarding. Some people are frustrated at the rising cost of paying for this testing. The only preventative method for trisomy 21 is that of abortion. It is understandable why people are concerned with discriminating against those that have this abnormality. Since it is the most common form of a chromosomal abnormality in babies, it is something that many parents already understand. Parents deserve as much information as possible about the situation they are facing.
The last abnormality is an extra chromosome in males. Even though some individuals will end up with language impairments, many men do not realize they even have this problem. Being aware of the condition can help the individual receive the intervention required from an early age. It is difficult to determine how an individual child will be affected until later on down the road.
