Disney princess underwear: Sweet and sexy, or creepy for life?

For grown women, looking back at the Disney princesses we looked up to as kids can be rather distressing.

Cinderella has zero backbone, Belle is cool until the Beast isolates her from her friends and family (is she imprisoned? I can’t remember), and Ariel goes from being an Indiana Jones of the freakin’ sea to giving up gills and a tail – a tail! – to marry Prince Eric, who spent 75% of the film paying more attention to Ursula 2.0. (I mean, she wanted legs to do a gap year abroad but that never seemed like it would be a permanent thing.)*

But some gals see things differently. Some gals dress up as cartoonish seductresses for Halloween. Some gals wear accessories with the word “princess” glued on them in rhinestones.

Some gals buy the gold undies Belle whipped out when her hot husband re-released his inner Beast on their wedding night:

So – are these Disney princess-inspired undie sets cute and sexy – or creepy for life? I’ll tell you one thing, Belle Maison’s “Disney Fantasy Shop” description in Google translate ain’t helping their cause.

I’m all for Buzzfeed-y nostalgia – sometimes throwbacks to garb you had as a girl can be fun (see: Days-of-the-week undies) – but is this weird?

As with my ground rules for all lingerie purchases, I think the goofiness factor here depends on one thing: Who exactly is girlfriend wearing these for?

If they’re for her, cool. If they’re for him, well – can we really blame him for want to snuggle down with his first crush? The Aurora bra is pretty cute…

*Full disclosure: I still totally buy Disney princess garb for my little five-year-old cousin who’s obsessed with them, on the implicit agreement she’ll grow up to be cool and independent anyway, like the rest of us.

    Obviously not a licensed Disney product, so it is kinda trashy.

    Why is this creepy? If your girl came back from the mall and put them on; I don’t think your man would know that it was bell or cinderella panties! They are cute and any women wearing them will feel like a princess under her cloths! Maybe a Pokahontas G-stirng!!! grrrrrrr

    Princess Leia is now technically a Disney princess, and look what she wears!

    Certainly puts a new spin on the old Underoos

    what is really creepy is that you missed the underlying message of beauty and the beast ” put up with the monster until he changes in to a prince” sounds like training for an abused wife.
