Pretty lingerie should be a staple in any woman's wardrobe. Slip on some slinky underwear and up the sultriness factor with pieces from the latest Chasney Beauty collection.

State of Undress' saucy lingerie is the latest to infiltrate the hidden fashion market. Founded by Britain's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design graduates Daniel Reynolds, Alexandra Shuner and Emma Cheevers, the brand features a melange of silk printed knickers and sensual camisoles that seem too chic to be worn as underwear.

Knickers knockout

THE Italian village of Pieve di Curtarolo, near Padua, has banned people who live near the local church from hanging out their underwear to dry on balconies.

The ban will save visitors and locals from embarrassment, the mayor said. Seems it's easier to launder mob money in Italy than your smalls. Don't think it'll catch on here somehow.

But when they decide to surprise their wife or girlfriend with a gift of lingerie, they may find making such purchases if not traumatic, at least embarrassing.

But these days more men are giving their women lingerie.
