Now dressing "warm" for comfort can now be "sexy". Long gone are the days of when you think about thermal clothing - log cabins and hot cocoa by the fireplace comes to mind. There was a time when you wanted to wear "thermals" to bed, it was most likely when you were alone, because it was soooo not the " sexy" piece of clothing. You would not dare wear them around the house when your beau is over , or even (gasp) try to go to bed in them while he was around or wore them to sleep in at his place.Now that all has changed, with lace options ( like the shorts pictured above) that come in hot pants or boxer shorts ( however you'd like to classify them) , and vests , to t shirts. Now comfort and warmth and "sexy" can finally co-exist during these cold Autumn-Winter nights ahead.
