Maria La Blanca's New Swimwear Lines
Anna Maria La Blanca now offers two swimwear lines in its collection: Swimclean and Beachwear Innovation.
"The Swimclean beachwear collection takes on old established concepts and literally turns them upside down," said the company.
The Swimclean collection has a clean and modern look that gives harmony to the body and serenity to the mind. Colors are inspired by the natural elements of the sea and the earth that in combination with the sleek look of the styles are aiming for that "swimclean" sensation in the ocean.
Offered in White, Navy Blue and Brown with contrast color wide bands.
The Swimclean beachwear collection takes on old established concepts and literally turns them upside down.
While virtually all one piece bathing suits cover the front part of the woman's body, Anna Maria decides with the Trikini to reverse the angle of vision uncovering the front part and discretely covering the back, the visual effect achieved is a one piece bathing suit that looks like a bikini revealing the front part of the body. From a rear angle the eye is left guessing what goes on the front adding to the sexiness of the piece.
In her classical one piece bathing suit Anna Maria strives to uncover as much skin as possible. The plunge in the front, the wide open back and the tailor-like cuts create a design that remains true to worship the woman’s body and curves.
According to the company, the challenge for the Beachwear Innovation collection, "...was to create a practical swimwear collection with just the right amount of bedroom look that would let onlookers thirsty for more. Crossing that fine line between lingerie and beachwear was possible with the combination of exquisite and innovative designs that embrace the woman’s body and the use of the most exclusive, innovative fabrics and lace inspired prints that Anna Maria La Bianca personally designed."
The collection includes: The Triangle Bra, with its unique design that support the breast without
The versatile Bikini Bottom, with discrete ruffles on the sides. The Bandeau Bra, with a subtle clean look and hidden underwire for great support.
The Skirted Bikini, ideal for a fashion forward, yet nostalgic woman that wants to be notices while sunbathing.
The Flocked One Piece Bathing Suit, made with a special a UV protection and ultra strong textile for a glamorous and slim figure. The pattern on the bathing suit is custom made and obtained with the unique combination of flocking and prints techniques resistant to chlorine and salty water.
The Pareo, with its exclusive and elegant design can be used around the pool or as an accessory to complete your summer outfit.
And finally the One Piece Bathing Suit, sexy and sophisticated is the pearl in the shell and the masterpiece of the whole collection.

Hamas Bans Lingerie Displays
Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip have banned Gaza clothing outlets from displaying lingerie in their shop windows, police said.
The ban was not intended to "Islamise" Palestinian society, but restore "the public morals, " Hamas police spokesman Ayman Batniji said in a statement.
“These measures have stemmed from complaints and pressure by ordinary people. They have to do with upholding our traditions,” he added.
Shop owners who violated the new edicts would be fined, he added.
The new order calls for removing scantily clad mannequins and security cameras, and also requires shops to keep their doors open.
"The police will also launch investigations into the conduct of the stores' owners to avoid any suspicious
behavior with female customers," Batniji said.
Since seizing control of the coastal salient in 2007,the Islamist Hamas has been imposing restrictions on the population which critics say impinge on personal liberties.
Two weeks ago, the authorities issued an order prohibiting women from smoking the hookah (water pipe) in public.
Women have also been banned from riding behind men on motorcycles and are not allowed to sit alone in public places.
Hamas police have broken up a hip-hop concert in the territory and tried – unsuccessfully – to force women lawyers in court and female school students to wear traditional Muslim clothing, a step that drew a public backlash.
High school girls have to wear Islamic dress.

Paysaber Pricing Drops
Intimate Payments continues to focus on the needs of intimate retailers in all aspects of the business. This is evident in the variety of new products and service they have launched this year. Most recently Intimate Payments has
began offering the PaySaber, allowing users of the iPhone to accept credit cards and manage inventory right from their iPhone (or iPod Touch with WiFi access).
“The scope of this product goes well beyond the home party merchant as we first envisioned.” States Steve Kimberling, EVP of Sales for Intimate Payments. “When we first launched the product we focused on the capabilities of home party reps to be able to process credit card transactions in real time, but we also found it to be very helpful for wholesale merchants at tradeshows and events.” Kimberling explained the scenario in great detail… picture this… you are a distributor of intimate apparel (or any product for that matter) and are working your tradeshow booth. Instead of writing down your buyers order as you show them each piece you simply scan the bar code you created on the tag and enter the quantity and size. At the end of the order it is automatically calculated and ready for payment. You swipe the client’s credit card through the same device which then produces a receipt once the
transaction is approved. That same order is instantly available in the system back at your warehouse. Your staff can begin picking and shipping the order within moments. If you have loaded your inventory into the system prior to the show you will also see quantities remaining as you are scanning individual items and know exactly what’s in the warehouse.
“Don’t get me wrong”, Kimberling warns, “These devices are still GREAT for home party folks, we have just seen additional opportunities to services our wholesale clients with the PaySaber as well”
In an effort to make these devices even more affordable to merchants of all sizes Intimate Payments was able to negotiate a promotional price on a small number of units. “Due to our focus on this intimate space along with the PaySaber’s manufacturer, USA ePay, I have 100 units available at a price that is 74% off of normal retail. Get your snow for $179 before they are gone!”

Le Dame Footwear Featured
on RuPaul's Drag U
Le Dame Footwear is proud to announce that its signature line of shoes will be featured on the new Logo reality show “RuPaul’s Drag U,” premiering Monday July 19th at 9/8 C. This version of a make-over show has a fun twist.
Popular drag queens from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” take ordinary women under their angelic wings to mentor them and transform them into sensational, show-stopping glamorous divas!
The core of the show, according to RuPaul is taking “women from the middle of America who have basically given up on themselves and give them a makeover from the inside out.”
Le Dame Footwear founder Bernie J. Fatla said, “We were very excited when we were contacted by the producers of ‘RuPaul’s Drag U’ to provide the complete line of shoes for this new and exciting show. To be able to partner with both the ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and now ‘RuPaul’s Drag U’ is truly a great opportunity to expose our brand to a wider audience. The ability to provide fashionable, comfortable shoes for both our target audience: the drag queen/ cross-dresser/transgender consumer, as well as the female customer that has a larger foot and has difficulty finding shoes that are stylish, sophisticated and sexy, is great. At the end of the day, who doesn’t want to feel sexy? Shoes can make the man or the woman. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with RuPaul’s team.”

A pharmacist comes back from his break and sees a man leaning against the wall, his face strained and nervous. He asks his assistant: "What's wrong with that man over there?"
"He came in looking for cough medicine," she replies. "I couldn't find any, so I gave him a whole bottle of laxatives."
"Oh great!" steamed the pharmacist. "He is going to sue us now. You don't give laxatives to a person with a cough!"
"Well," said the clerk defensively, "look at him. He's afraid to cough!"
