Icing on the Cake - Lingerie Accessories - Part 4 - Fans

The feathered fan is the quintessential lingerie accessory, and there are so many words to describe it. It's seductive, sensual, playful, and expressive. In truth, it's all of that and more.

Fans have been around for centuries, and with Dita von Tesse leading the revival of burlesque, having one in your boudoir has never been more fun! There are multiple options with it, from doing a stripe tease, to fan dancing, to using a blindfold and caressing your lucky love. The soft, delicate feathers can only enhance an already intimate situation, making it more erotic.

Fans come in a variety of sizes, colors, and feathers. Alison Rubke, co-owner of Faire Frou Frou, says that the fans fly out of her store. Some of the more exquisite and one-of-a-kind ones can sell for a couple hundred to thousands of dollars. You can also pick up a quality, luxurious fan for under $100. Believe it or not, I've even seen them priced as low as $20. Although, remember that the large price difference varies based upon the quality and size of the it as well as type of feathers used.

For those of you wanting more versatility out of your fan, you can take them out of the bedroom too. "Pocket fans," smaller versions of their larger sisters, are recommended for this. At a black tie or formal event, the addition of a one will add a luxurious, extravagant look to your overall attire. With wedding season and summer coming, feathered pocket fans are perfect for outside of the boudoir.

Whether you're into a big production, dressing up an outfit or simply enhancing your bedroom play, feathered fans are an enjoyable way to "Celebrate Your Inner Eve!"

If I'm not dreaming about lingerie, I'm perusing stores for it, seeking it online or designing it. I just can't get enough!
