Having spent your hard earned money on your beautiful lingerie, then the last thing you want to do is see it ruined after the first wash. Unlike other clothing lingerie is very different when it comes to washing.

Babydoll’s and Chemises cannot be treated the same way as Jeans and Shirts and just be thrown into the washing machine on a normal cycle and left. The result would be a trip to your nearest lingerie store to replace the item.

Women’s Lingerie will not last for ever but by following some simple guidelines your Camisoles and Teddies will last longer and keep their shape.

Lingerie today comes in fabrics and materials that make caring for the item easier than in days gone by. Most of the underwear sold today will come with manufacturers tags recommending how to care for your Satin Babydoll or your Lace Bustier. These recommendations should be followed if the lingerie is to last.

The tags will separate your lingerie into different washes, dry clean only, hand wash and machine wash. Make sure you always read the label as to the type of wash as mistakes can be very costly. So let’s look at the different types of cleaning.

Dry clean only

This is probably the easiest option as the garment can only be cleaned at a specialist shop. This could cause a problem as lingerie is a very private item and not everybody would be happy to take their Teddy or garter Set into a shop to be cleaned. There are products available that can be used at home and imitate the dry cleaning process for those not willing to use a dry cleaning shop.

Machine Wash

The modern washing machine is a time saving invention but it can cause major damage to your delicate underwear if the instructions are not followed.
Always wash your lingerie in cold water and use a detergent specially recommend for delicates never use bleach. Never wash dark and light colors together. Finally combine this with the delicate cycle on your washing machine and your lingerie should have no problems with repeated washes.

However as i have mentioned before Babydolls, Chemises, Camisoles and Bustiers can be delicate items with lace trims, ribbons, hooks and eyes that need to be cared for. Just putting these items into a washing machine even if you follow the instructions above could result in damage. To avoid this put your lingerie into a lingerie bag for extra protection (this is a mesh bag that allows soap and water in, but stops your lingerie being stretched, and can be purchased from most department stores). Only put one item per bag as this will stop the lingerie becoming entangled. Also always make sure all the hooks and eyes and buttons are fastened, and that zippers are closed and ribbons and drawstrings are tied.

Hand Wash

Hand washing is the alternative to the machine wash. Again the principle is the same, always wash in cold water and use a delicates detergent. Soak the lingerie in a bowl filled with cold water and detergent for about 30 minutes then drain and refill the bowl with clean water and no detergent, leave for another 30 minutes then drain the water. This should be sufficient for most washes; however for stains or odours this process can be repeated. Never wring out your lingerie as this could effect the shape.


Again due to the fabrics used in your lingerie it is always best to hang dry or flat dry your garments. Dryers can cause un-repairable damage to your silk Chemise or satin Babydoll. If you have to use a dryer then leave the lingerie in the lingerie bag and set the dryer at its lowest possible setting. You will find that sheer fabrics such as mesh or Chiffon require no heat to dry.

So by taking a little care and reading the tags on your lingerie, your Babydolls, Chemises, Teddies, Camisoles and Bustiers should look as good as new wash after wash.

When golf first became popular with women in the 1800s, the Victorian Age ruled the earth as well as the golf course. Conventional Victorian fashion of the time had lady golfers dressed like they were going to an afternoon tea. Picture straw bowler hats, skirts that hit the floor, high neck blouses and formal buttoned shoes. These ladies looked more like they might be going to the opera than taking in a game of golf.

The Pain of Fashion

How these women could manage to swing and walk the greens is a mystery to us these days. It’s hard to imagine the scene today. Modern women’s golf fashion combines style and function. How women’s golf fashion has changed over the years can be summed up in practicality. Try wearing a 19th century Victorian dress and your next summer golf outing, and you’ll see what we mean.

Why not Look Good and be Practical?

A 1922 edition of Vanity Fair showed off a Burberrys Tweed, self belted golf suit for the latest in ladies’ golf fashions. It was the first attempt to really combine the fashion and function that today’s women golfers demand. Who wants to dress in the tweed and wool of the 1920s on a hot day on the golf course?

At the same time, who wants to dress like a man, especially when you consider how bad men’s fashions have been in the sport of golf? Why can’t a woman golfer look good and still be proud of being a woman when she hits the green?

Fashion that makes Sense

Today’s leading golf designers understand the woman golfer’s need for style and function. Golf is a social game, after all, but it’s also a mobile game. You are out with friends, family and business associates. It’s natural you want to look beautiful with all the privileges of being a lady. At the same time, you’re in the hot sun traversing the golf course green. You’ve got to be practical. Why can’t you have beautiful lady’s golf fashions that also make sense? Why not look good and be practical at the same time?

We’ve come a long way, ladies. Play every bit as good as a man, but look beautiful doing it. That’s the way of women. Today’s fashion looks great and makes sense. Why did it take the golf fashion companies so long to figure that out?

Lingerie for most women is about a sexy feeling although it has a practical aspect which should guide you on selecting good lingerie. Women choose to wear lingerie either to derive pleasure from it or to please their partners. Selecting the right lingerie is important for any woman since it must meet the reasons for buying and wearing it. Each lingerie design is created for particular individuals therefore buying the right size lingerie will depend on your particular body type although some varieties are designed to make you appear sexier than others. The following process should guide you on how to buy the right size lingerie:

Measure your bust size

Your bust will have a lot in determining how to buy the right size lingerie. Measuring your bust can be done at the local lingerie shop; alternatively you can take the measurements on your own so as to ensure that you are not wearing the wrong bust size. Wearing lingerie with the wrong size not only makes you a turn off but also looks awkward and feels uncomfortable. Ensure you have a cup size that enhances your bust, if yours is big get then ensure the cup has molded foam which should keep the bust under control. Women with smaller busts should select lingerie with added cup size so as to lift their bust making it appear larger.

Consider the midsection

Your midsection is another aspect that will have a lot of influence on how to buy the right size lingerie. Women with hourglass or slim midsection should select a fitting lingerie which include corset tops which adds show off existing curves or enhance the that part of your body. Those with fuller midsection should buy lingerie with flowing waists so as to mask the area thus enhancing your bust and legs. Individuals who want to emphasize on their midsection can opt to get a well fitted embellished bra which should do the trick.

Complement your hips and bottom

Buy bottoms that enhance your hips and behind, individuals with rounded behinds should select a boy-short cut so as to complement that area. On the other hand women with full bottoms are well advised to keep off from thin cuts such as thongs and bikinis. Those with slim bottoms and hips should seek to add some curves with ruffled bottoms. When choosing the right bottom for the lingerie it is important to consider the type of top you intend to wear with the lingerie. If you love flirty baby doll lingerie then go for frilly garter and shoes.

Consider accessories for your lingerie

Another aspect when considering how to buy the right size lingerie is deciding on whether the outfit will be accessorized or not. Your legs can be enhanced with some lingerie accessories which should complement your overall look. Corset lingerie looks great with garter belts and fishnet stockings. High heel have a way of making legs look fierce and works for most women. Buying the ideal lingerie is hinged on selecting an outfit that enhances your strongest points. Considering lingerie that focuses on your best areas will ensure that you end up with the best outfit.

I have talked with lots of people about Cloth Diapers and I know one frustration of many people that are just getting into cloth is the “Lingo” that the cloth diapering community uses. There is nothing worse than trying to find information just to have it all in a secret code!

Here is your Lingo 101 crash course:

CD: CD stands for Cloth Diapers. So we have CD’ers and CD’ing, cloth diaper-ers and cloth diaper-ing.

Stash: a stash is the collection of cloth diapers that a person has. Some stashes are small and just fill the needs of the family, and some stashes are literally a collection of cloth diapers.

Closures: the way a diaper is done up to stay on baby, types include: snap, velcro, pin, snappie, or wrap style cover.

OS diaper: One Size diaper, made to fit all sizes of kids from birth to potty training.

AIO: All in one diaper, a diaper that is diaper and cover in one, with snap or velcro closures.

AI2: All in two diaper, a diaper that is a diaper and cover with and insert added in, with snap or velcro closures.

Pocket: a diaper that is a shell with a pocket that you stuff with an absorbent insert, with snap or velcro closures.

Fitted: an absorbent, breathable diaper that needs a cover, with snap, velcro or pin closures.

Flat: a flat square of absorbent fabric that you can fold into a diaper, requires pins or some other method of closure.

Prefold: a flat diaper that has been “pre-folded” and sewn so the middle is more absorbent, requires pins or other method of closure.

Contour diaper: a prefold that has been sewn into a contoured shape to fit more easily without all the folding, requires pins of other method of closure.

Covers: a covering for a fitted, contoured, flat or prefold diaper that is usually fleece, PUL (polyurethane laminate: waterproof fabric) or wool.

Wrap: style of cover that wraps around the baby like the diaper holding the diaper in place, has either snap of velcro closure.

Soaker or Longies: Pull up covers usually fleece or wool, longies are pant style covers.

Insert or Booster: more absorbency layers you can simply add to the diaper.

WAHM: Work at home Mom

Sposies: disposable diapers

Diaper Sprayer: a sprayer you attach to your toilet to spray off your diapers.

So now that we have the basic lingo let’s talk why cloth is better…

I am biased I know, but I have three reasons I cloth diapered. I will share them with you.


This one is kind of obvious I think. Pro-disposable advocates have for years used the water argument. That the amount of water used to wash cloth diapers is is as hard on the environment as the production and disposal of disposable diapers. So, how about some numbers…

It is estimated that every year 2 billion tons of urine, feces, plastic and paper are added to landfills. Also did you know that it takes around 80, 000 pounds of plastic and over 200, 000 trees a year to manufacture the disposable diapers that just the babies in the us use. Now I know some disposables are presented as biodegradable, but in order for this process to work them must be exposed to the sun. This does not happen since we cover our landfills. It can take several hundred years for them to decompose, and some of the plastics never do decompose.

As to the claim that we are wasting water with flushing the waste and washing cloth diapers, did you realize that the water that we use to flush and to wash our diaper is sent into the waste-water plants and then treated. It is then much more environmentally friendly than dumping untreated soiled disposable diapers into a landfill.

So we agree they are better for the environment, how about your baby?

Healthy Lifestyle:

In our lifestyles today we are becoming more and more aware of the chemicals and such that are being added to everything around us. Our food, our water, our kids’ toys, and even our pesticides and fertilizers. We are demanding that we want more organic lifestyles. We want things to be healthier and better for us. Why then should this not carry over to the diapers we put on our baby’s bum? Does your baby get rashes? Most babies get rashes from one thing or another. There are a few things that are added to disposable diapers that are not very healthy or at all natural. Dyes, sodium polyacrylate (the super absorbent gel), and dioxin, which is a by-product of bleaching paper are just some thing found in disposable diapers. Also a big concern is Sodium polyacrylate which has been linked in the past to toxic shock syndrome and allergic reactions, this is no longer allowed in Tampons, but is still used in disposable diapers.

Some of the problems reported to the CPA (Consumer Protection Agency) regarding disposable diapers include, chemical burns, noxious chemical and insecticide odors, babies pulling disposables apart and putting pieces of plastic into their noses and mouth and choking on them, plastic melting onto the skin, and ink staining the skin. That sounds just dandy huh? I put cloth diapers on my babies because I knew exactly what was going on their bum, and I knew exactly what was in the diapers. I also had total control over what was used on them in the cleaning process. Did you know that disposable diapers do not have to list their ingredient lists? They don’t want you to know what they put in them, what chemicals you are bringing into your home and putting on their precious little bums. Did that all sound like mumbo jumbo? Well if it did, then this last sentence is all you need to remember from this section. In the end cloth diapers worn and changed regularly are simply better for your baby’s adorable little behind.

So if this all isn’t enough what about the cost? Is it really cheaper to cloth diaper?

Cost of Cloth Diapers VS Disposable Diapers:

Disposable diaper estimates run between $60 to $80 a month depending on the brand of choice. That is between $750-$960 a year for diapering one child… how many of you have or will have more than one in diapers? I did! I have 6 kids that is $7, 500! Can you imagine that? Did I just want to throw away that much money? You better believe I did NOT!

So how much will a stash of cloth diapers cost you? And do you really save money?

There are so many brands of diapers out there and the the cost is differing. From cheap Prefolds at $12 for a 6 pack to Fitted’s that will cost you upwards of $40 a diaper. I make and sell Cloth Diapers and my diapers are in the middle of the range of the cost of Cloth Diapers. My diapers cost $23. 50 a diaper. We will use the cost of my Nifty Nappy Cloth Diapers to figure out the cost of a stash.

20 diapers = $470

3 woolie wrap covers = $75

2 longie wool covers = $40

diaper pail = $3 (Ace 2 gallon bucket)

Diaper sprayer = $29 – $40

TOTAL: $580-$600

This was my stash minus the diaper sprayer, which i did survive all 10 years of cloth diapering without! I know that that seems like a lot! BUT it is less than you would spend for one year of disposable diapers. And you can diaper that child through all diapering years with that stash. PLUS other children that follow as well! The “care of” does add a bit of a cost. With some extra batches of laundry a week and the extra electricity. I just convinced my sister to use cloth diapers and she is on her last child. She now wishes she had used them the whole time. She says that she honestly is not doing more laundry with cloth than she was doing before. She says my cloth diapers contain messes that used to blow right up and out of the disposable diapers. She has to wash the baby’s actual clothes less because there are less blowouts which in turn has made her baby clothes last longer also.

I diapered two kiddos in cloth with 20 diapers washing every other day. I also used the same set of diapers for my four youngest children. I did one wash in hot water and then hung them out to dry as much as possible cutting down on the cost of drying… since the sun is free! So to me the cost difference was a big part in my decision to cloth diaper.

Eco friendly clothing is a new and not very common thing. This is an initiative taken by some manufacturers to reduce the use of synthetic fabrics for clothing and going green. Most of us have never thought about these clothes because we think that these clothes are expensive. The fact is that these clothes are available in the market at very affordable rates. Yes, if you think that this rare sounding clothing range is out of your reach then it is advisable to go and find it out yourself. You can get these clothes starting from as low as $29.

These clothes are available in very attractive designs. Today, there are so many designers promoting eco friendly clothing and have their stores selling these clothes as designer wear. You can find boutiques all across the world designing eco friendly clothes. These clothes are of much superior quality than the conventional clothes we use.

You can be sure of the durability and quality of these clothes because they are not treated by any chemical. Hemp clothing is one such great example of the clothes that are not only durable but extremely soft and comfortable. Hemp can grow well without pesticides and insecticides and takes lesser time in becoming mature and ready for use.

People who have tried hemp clothes feel increased comfort level and believe that their skin gets more scope to breathe though these clothes. These clothes get softer with every wash, which means that the more you wear them the better you feel. The strength of the fabric is much more than cotton. They are resistant to ultra violet radiations and molds. So once you buy them then you can wear them till the time you want.

Another eco friendly fabric is made from bamboo. The fabric drawn from bamboo is suitable for summers and winters both. They keep you warm in winters and cool in summers. They are very good option for the people with skin allergy problems. They do not retain moisture and hence do not smell easily. You can easily find jackets, nightwear, tops etc made of bamboo fibers. Bamboo clothing is not only comfortable but very hygienic as well.

Organic cotton is better than the traditional cotton in many ways. It grows in lesser time and that too without pesticides and insecticides. The fabric woven from this is not treated with any chemical and is completely safe for even small babies. Organic cotton clothing is great alternative to the tradition cotton for the people who prefer wearing only cotton. In fact you can find nappies and diapers for babies made of these organic fabrics easily available in the market.

You can find wide range of men’s and women’s wear. If you are fond of shopping online then you can find great deals on men’s T-shirts, sweat shirts and pants made of hemp, organic cotton or bamboo fibers. The rates that you would find here would be very competitive. The fabrics are very sustainable and comfortable. Men’s clothing range is large but the range of women’s clothing is much wide.

Women can find great designs in the dresses, pants, t-shirts, skirts etc. Most of the dresses are available with great discounts and deals. You may also get free shipping if you buy products of certain value. When you shop online, just make sure that you are aware of the terms of exchange and guarantee of the clothes that you buy.

These eco friendly clothes are friendly to the body of people who wear them and the environment both. The fabrics are very sustainable and thus give you good value for your money. The biodegradable fabric is woven and stitched in so many designs that you can’t resist buying them for your wardrobe.
