Is Red Really the Color of Love? Learn more about the science behind this supposed color of love.


By Seth Czarnecki,
QualityHealth News

You've heard it before. Men are more attracted to a woman who is ovulating. Women are attracted to tall men. Although these rules are not absolute, studies have proved them to be true in the majority of cases. And so, studies such as these—aside from being intensely interesting—may provide insight about evolutionary development, psychology, and deeply ingrained human emotions.

Another recent study has linked an everyday occurrence with sexual attraction. Long has the American media associated the color red been with love, passion, and beauty; however, there may be truth to this association.


Researchers at the University of Rochester found that the color red may actually be the color of romance. In a variety of experiments, young men averaging the age of twenty were shown photographs in which women were either wearing red or standing in front of a red background. The men who participated in the study overwhelmingly chose the women who were associated with the color red as being more attractive. In fact, men even admitted they would spend more money on the women linked with red than on the women linked with any other color.

The latter is said to boost histamine production necessary for the ability to reach orgasm in both sexes.

New Lingerie by Un.i from Brazil promises to prevent and treat Cellulite

Women’s number one enemy, the Cellulite, is a nightmare in the lives of almost all of them. Those little dimples and the lumpy substance resembling cottage cheese that is commonly found on the thighs, stomach, and butt, Cellulite is actually a fancy name for collections of fat that push against the connective tissue beneath a person's skin, which causes the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look lumpy.

That "orange peel” look affects also the slim and skinny women as well in teenagers and young women.

Thinking on all the women who suffers from this villain, the intimate apparel brand, Un.i from Brazil, will soon launch “Skin Care”, a line of lingerie that prevents and minimizes Cellulite.

This miraculous line is due to “Emana”, a thread from polyamide used in the composition of the microfiber utilized in the fabrics. It constitutes of bio active crystals that absorbs heat from the body and returns in the form of infrared rays, which penetrates in the skin stimulating circulation and cellular metabolism. The use of 6 hours per day, during 60 days, the Skin Care lingerie provides an increase of 8% in the elasticity of the skin and 33% improvement in circulation. The facts are scientifically proven by Amni Rhodia, the leading brand of Rhodia polyamide textile in the world.

The discovery of the thread Emana represents a step up in technology because it allows the development of lingerie that goes beyond of its basic functions of support and beautifying the body. Further, the “Skin Care” lingerie results in your well-being and adds more to our functional products." says Gilberto Romanato, Director of Un.i Group which represents the brands Un.i, Un.i Sleepwear and Nu.Luxe. Besides the high technology and resistant fabric, the items of the new line comes with reinforced and strategic lining, better cut, wider bra straps, custom fasteners in super microfiber. All to improve the shape of the body and to improve better support to the breast.

The Skin Care line has eight styles ranging from briefs, bras, tops, shape wear, and shorts (bermudas). The line has a retro look, because the brand worked with the esthetics of the 50’s to develop the Winter Collection 2009. Fetishist symbol of the golden decade, the pin-up, with its naive sensuality, inspired the delicate fabrics and colors used in the line: red, cherry, rubi and grape, which predominates together with the basics white, black, chocolate and nude.

The line brings back the innocence and glamour of the golden years, without vulgarity and full of attitude and personality.

Bella Bella Boutique will be carrying the Skin Line collection as soon as it launches, keep tuned!
