From Sultrily Gartered Lingerie Ads to Racy Lingerie Lookbooks

The old saying that "sex sells" might just ring true in this collection of lingerie advertisements that highlight some scantily clad styles for both men and women that are sure to garner attention. With the rise in Victoria's Secret and Diesel making lingerie not only a fun aspect of fashion, but also an acceptable form of advertising despite the explicit showing of skin, it's become commonplace to see men and women baring (almost) all on the sides of buses and billboards.

Many might argue that advertising has become over-sexualized because of this rise in lingerie marketing, but it's really a decrease in cultural oppression and an increase in the fashion industry that's helping to drive the niche market ever-forward towards ubiquity.
