Guest Blog: Designer Laura Mehlinger Picks Her Holiday Lingerie Classics

As a lingerie designer for my own company, I think obsessively about lingerie. And there’s no more fun time of year to start thinking about luxury than now. As we approach the holiday season, my thoughts turn to cozy, seductive little goodies and to counting down the days until I can reasonably make a wish list. Is it time yet?

I was psyched to be invited by HerRoom to browse their offerings and curate some of my favorites—always a great excuse to shop! Nothing says sexy like the sophistication of black and the boldness of red, so I’ve put together a classic color story for the holidays.

Let’s start with foundations. I don’t know about you, but I’m planning to wear a lot of little party dresses this month, and depending on the cut of the neckline, that will mean needing a variety of smooth, no show bras.

Everyone needs a good strapless bra. The Soiree strapless bra by Le Mystere offers full support and underwire construction, along with side boning and slip-free technology so it won’t fall down.

For smaller size women looking for something that is gorgeous and also functional, check out The Little Bra Company Lucia Deep Plunge Convertible Petite Push Up Bra. This sexy, deep plunge push-up can be worn as a halter, classic or crossback style.


(To keep your legs warm and smooth, don’t forget about Spanx high-waisted tights.)

A classic, lovely slip that can be worn as a layering piece or on its own for bedtime flare, the La Perla Charming Flowers Chemise is a great holiday staple and a perfect item for your wish list.


Va va voom! Make your holidays merry in the Oh La La Cheri Bow Underwire Bra with Garter Belt and G-string in bright red.


Functional foundation and holiday pizazz are all in one with the Santa red colored Whimsical Balconnet Bra and matching panty that is the perfect blend of  naughty AND nice.
