Dita Von Teese: "My first bra was not very exciting. I was a late bloomer — the last of my girlfriends to get one. It was this horrible training bra-type thing, but it prompted me to save my money and buy my own darn bra. My mom was like, ‘You can’t have the black lace one.’ And I was like, ‘Why not?’ I’ve never equated beautiful lingerie with seduction or sex. It’s not about trying to get a man. Not at all. It’s about surrounding myself with beauty in my everyday life — whether it’s a bra or a notebook. I want everything around me to be attractive because I look at it every day." [Just Jared via Jezebel]
