Men’s Lingerie – Extraordinary New Undergear

Apparently Men’s lingerie is having a “moment”, but I don’t think it’s a moment, I believe it’s here to stay and is a long time coming!

This is the era of diversity and inclusion, but why should it be exceptional?  I think men deserve to feel sexy and sensual in day-to-day life as much as women do.  We all know that feeling of putting on a power set of lingerie under our clothes, our little secret makes us feel powerful. 

Why did we decide to design a Men’s Lingerie range?

I’ve already found that a lot of our “women’s” lingerie customers are men, we assume buying for their wives or women in their lives, but I believe that some are buying for themselves.  It’s not just for one kind of sexuality, it’s for ALL men who know the power and beauty of a great pair of briefs or boxers.

Getting rid of old stereotypes regarding Men’s Lingerie

Men’s lingerie is taking off among self-possessed male consumers looking for sexy undergarments that are more gender-expansive than a jockstrap.

When it comes down to it your expression is all that matters, your self-expression is yours only (both male and female) and if you want to wear a lace boxer briefs or any other lingerie then go right ahead. Be a fabulous human, all we want to do is make you feel sexy!

Lingerie is a way of decorating your body.  It’s a beautiful garment that fills you with confidence, no matter who you are or even what size you are. 

Male lingerie is a broad term, it includes many different products, they’re designs that go beyond function and have beauty in their aesthetic.  We need to broaden our view of fashion and masculinity.  Men are starting to look at underwear differently, the way women have for years, as a luxury, as an indulgence and something special that makes them feel awesome.

Doesn’t this now make you think about what others are wearing under?

Under Armor – Lingerie to Make You Feel Confident

Under Armour underwear for women

I thought Valentine’s Day was the perfect day to write this.  How do we feel about ourselves in a sexual, sensual way?  You have no idea how much power seeing yourself as a sensual, sexual person gives you in everyday life.  The amount of confidence you get overflows to the outside.  The energy you receive in return is immense and you in turn become a happier person. This is why we think wearing lingerie is good for you and why lingerie will make you feel confident again.

I’m a curvy, full woman.  I didn’t see myself in a sensual way for a very long time.  It was hard to correlate that tight body of my youth to this soft, lumpy, bumpy body I now have.

Why You Should Be Wearing Under Armor Lingerie?

Then I discovered lingerie, not for my husband, but for myself.  I used to think a pair of panties was just a pair of panties.  It’s not, they’re your Under Armor as I like to call it.  They’re your little secret, one that you know but others don’t walking around right in front of them.  Something pretty, sheer and maybe even a little cheeky and even something sexy

I love my boobs, my butt and even my belly because it’s encased in Armor. Do yourself a favour and try it out.  Wear something underneath you would never normally wear.  Let me know if you agree.

5 Winter Fashion Tips for Plus-Size Women in South Africa with it’s diverse climates

When it comes to dressing for the winter season in South Africa, plus-size women may face some unique challenges due to the country’s diverse climate. With changes in temperature and weather patterns throughout the day, it’s essential to dress in layers that can be easily removed or added as needed.

Here are five tips for plus-size women to stay stylish and comfortable in the winter months in South Africa:

  1. Layering is essential As mentioned, layering is key for winter dressing in South Africa. Start with a thin long-sleeved shirt as a base layer and add a sweater or cardigan for warmth. A light jacket or coat can be added for colder temperatures, and it can be removed during warmer parts of the day.

2. Choose the right fabrics The fabrics you choose for your winter wardrobe can make a big difference in how you feel throughout the day. In South Africa, it’s important to have a variety of fabrics that can adapt to changing weather conditions. Opt for breathable materials like Viscose, Rayon knit or Melton that can provide warmth without making you feel too hot. Avoid fabrics that are too thin or clingy, as they can accentuate areas you may want to downplay.

3. Dress for your location South Africa has a wide range of climates, from the dry heat of the Northern Cape to the rainy winters of the Western Cape. Make sure to dress for the climate of your location. If you’re in a coastal area, a waterproof coat may be necessary, while those in inland areas may need to dress for colder temperatures.

4.Don’t be afraid of color Winter clothing often comes in muted colors, but in South Africa, bold and bright colors can be especially appropriate. Vibrant hues can add a pop of color to a dreary winter day, and they can help you stand out in a sea of neutral-colored coats and jackets.

5.Embrace your curves Finally, it’s essential to embrace your curves and wear clothing that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles and looks. The key is to find clothing that flatters your body type and makes you feel good about yourself.

With these tips, you’ll be ready to take on the winter season with confidence and style.

As I Get Older The Clothing I Wear Matters Most

As I get older the Clothing I wear is even more important by Nicole Rasmussen

I write as I get older and come up to my 47th Birthday I began to wonder where the hell time went. This is my inaugural Nucleus Clothing Blog Post. I’m ageing, I’m not sure I’m ageing gracefully or kicking towards the light. I’ll focus this more on how I feel about myself, my body, my face and my style.

When I was younger I was pretty popular, I had an unusual look and a good body. However, I wasn’t that confident in myself and didn’t know what I projected. Basically, I didn’t know what I had and really didn’t take advantage of it. So teach your children to be confident and self-aware in a good way. It’s one of the best gifts we can give them.

Clothing Design For Older Women in South Africa

As I’ve gotten older I’m Curvier, my face is softer, and I’m less edgy in terms of my dress and my alternativeness. However, I’m more confident mainly because I’ve realised perceptions other people have of me don’t really count. It’s the perception I have of myself that counts. I walk on the beach with all my curves on display, in a bikini and I am far less self-aware than I was when I was a young adult.

As I get older the Clothing I wear is even more important by Nicole Rasmussen
Nicole Rasmussen explains why clothing is important as I get older

My face is getting lines, it’s sagging slightly and I have loads of pigmentation and weird bumps. I’m wearing far less make-up than I used to. Maybe it’s a result of the pandemic and not going anywhere but a few years ago you wouldn’t catch me outside without at least a foundation on. Now I go outside without a stitch. I still like make-up but I’m that woman now that wears a bold red lip (day or night) and feels flipping fantastic. I’m trying to love my face as its beauty changes, I’m not 100% sure I’m succeeding but I am trying.

As I get Older Comfortable Clothing Matters Most

I have slightly given into the grey too. Incorporating it rather than banishing it to the outmost reaches of the galaxy. Mainly since my hairdresser says it’s stubborn and grey will out. I wear my curly hair long. Like in Texas where the higher the hair the closer to god. I wear my hair long because it reminds me that I’m still youthful, a woman and feminine. It’s a pain, an actual pain because when I have to brush it to wash it the noises I make a sound like I’m being tortured. It would be easier to cut it off but it’s my power.

Now to style and I think what has changed… I used to spend hours putting the perfect outfit together. As I get older, I’m curvier but I still like my Jeans fitted and before I didn’t like dresses I now do. They just need to suit my body as it is now, I ain’t no wolf in sheep’s clothing. Generally now have a uniform in summer. It’s usually our Oh So Easy Kaftan in a variety of prints and plains, I have about five different ones.

As I get older I choose them because I still want to look good, slightly edgy, comfortable and cool but still decent enough for the school run and the other things I have to do for business during the day. They’re worn to friends for lunch, out to lunch at a restaurant and even walking the dog. When you find your one you just know.

So I’m more comfortable in my own skin, I’m happier with myself and I love myself more. I choose things that make me happy and suit my lifestyle and personality, not what people tell me I must choose. I’m an independent, confident and self-loved woman now!
