Grown Women Can Now Wear Disney Princess Lingerie (PHOTOS)

I didn't grow up loving princesses and all-things pastel, but I've seen most Disney princess films and have absolutely nothing against these cherished characters. My daughter learned to sip juice from a Cinderella cup, and we sometimes read Snow White before bedtime. So, no princess issues for me.

But as a grown woman, I leave the tiara-wearing and princess love to my toddler. So when I found out that one Japanese company named Bellemaison makes sexy Disney-themed lingerie for adult women, I chalked it up to "things I don't understand and never will." But I couldn't help wanting to get another glimpse. 

The company's "Disney Fantasy Shop" features four $38 bra and panty options. You can choose among the following princesses: Cinderella, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, or Rapunzel

I'm pleased to say this isn't at all what I expected. These bras and panties are very pretty and don't scream "Disney Princess." In other words, no photos of Prince Charming or any of the princesses appear on the crotch, thank God.

Still, I find it odd that grown women would look to Disney for sexy fashion inspiration. Or is the point not to be sexy, but to feel like a princess yourself? This lingerie isn't far off from most that you see in stores, so I could understand wearing it, but wouldn't go out of my way to buy it because of the Disney connection.

And I can't help but wonder if many men would be turned on by this lingerie because it was inspired by cartoon characters that are pure as the driven snow. After asking my husband what he would think, he sort of scrunched up his face in horror and told me that if I'd worn it our first time "together," it would probably be our last time together. You'll notice how he didn't say it would totally break the deal.

Would you wear lingerie inspired by Disney princesses?

Honestly who wouldn't want underwear fit for a princess?

you do not understand about Japanese culture. It is not about attracting guys, its about being cute. I am a 32 years-old Japanese woman, and have two sons. I dress cute and own cute things. We love cute things even after we become adult. The "kawaii (cute) " culture is big part of us. It is fun to dress cute and look at cute things. So many Japanese women are like that. And These lingeries are nice because even those Japanese women who are too shy to dress cute but love cute things, they can wear cute but nobody knows about it.
I had lived in USA for 5 years. So I understand many of the people in USA do not understand about this lingerie.
but before writes in articles about what is happening in other countries and criticize them, you have to know about their cultures first. otherwise you have no right to write about them.

Thank you Mimi for giving a culturally relevant explanation to this product. You are correct in the United States we tend to see women's undergarments as needing to be sexy or attractive so the idea of "cute" princess inspired underware for adult women can be confusing in its purpose.

I LOVE these! Especially Bell and Aurora. And that's pretty cheap for such a cute set.

I love these! And why would I wear them FOR anybody? I just like cute underwear.

Because they don't say "princess" or "Disney", how would your husband know? As long as you feel pretty and happy, who has to know where you bought them, or who they are inspired by?
