Sexy Shopping: 5 Lingerie Brands To Try

While Victoria's Secret is synonymous with affordable yet sexy nightwear, it's not the only one in the market. We’ve found a few great brands we’re sure you’ll love (we know they’re pricey, but you should spend a little more on provocative panties, right?) And let's keep it real: this should be a job for your boyfriend anyway. Point him (or yourself) in the direction of our favorite lingerie brands…

Who: La Perla

Why: Founded in 1954 by corset designer Ada Masotti, this Italian staple has been spotted on Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and Megan Fox. Unlike most designers, La Perla's adjust their sizes on an actual body, not a mannequin. Coined "the pearl of lingerie" by Jean Paul Gautier, women with dangerous curves are advised to invest a few bucks into these impeccably fitting undergarments.

Suggested Pick: Invisible Feeling T-Shirt Bra ($55-$92)

Who: Agent Provocateur

Why: The name says it all. As the friskiest brand on our list, Provocateur goodies are all about naughty embellishments. Founded by fashion icon Vivienne Westwood’s offspring Malcolm McLaren and ex-wife Serena Rees, the once local NYC line has quickly transformed to a worldwide phenomenon.

Suggested Pick: Birthday Suit Bra ($170)

Who: Damaris

Why: Thank Damaris Evans for the resurgence of bottom cleavage. The knickercentric designer has been in business since 2001, creating lush patterns for the derriere ever since.

Suggested Pick: Corset Knicker ($200)

Who: Aubade

Why: In addition to being fashion forward, French couture enthusiasts will enjoy playing dress up in simple and elegant undergarments.

Suggested Pick: "Crepescule Satine" Nighty ($200)

Who: Cosabella

Why: Translating to "beautiful things", Cosabella has been worn by countless female celebs since 1983. And the lacy pieces won't do too much damage to your wallet.

Suggested Pick: Thea Bandeau Bra ($90)

Who: La Senza

Why: Since its inception, this lesser known brand has been Victoria's Secret's unofficial competition. Despite its efforts to not be overtly sexual in design, La Senza still manages to give just enough sexy to keep us begging for more.

Suggested Pick: "Hello Sugar" Front Closure Push Up Bra with Lace Up Back ($42.50)

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
