It's funny you say that - my wife had a similar reaction - although she called it "underwear night" ... The women that lined up for judging I think were more wearing lingerie than not. There was an equal number that didn't line up for the judging. But when we walked in, there were a whole lot of people milling around in street clothes (my opinion is, you don't dress, you don't get in), and there were also a lot of folks in swim wear. If you go left to right in that photo, the first gal (Lalo's holding her arm up) was wearing a matching thong/bra set - and the bra was gone for the final judging. She won. That gal was topless in more places than not that week - even one night dancing in Nice Shoes to the music - and was constantly moving to the music - to the point where my wife nicknamed her "Jiggles" ... LOL Then going along from left to right: - sheer lace halter babydoll - definitely lingerie - my wife - sheer top lace long gown. Not the hottest, definitely the prettiest, but of course, I'm biased ... - yellow bra, bra and underwear - weak - Partially hidden, is Alejandra, staff member and she had removed her camisole at that point and was wearing tap pants. - green, cami and underwear - brown striped skirt - bra and some sort of tap pant/skirt - yellow/green satin, some sort of shorty gown - cowboy hat: she started the evening in sheer cami that matched the pajama pants, also sheer, then took the top off playing blackjack - she was runner up. - topless, black boyshorts - was wearing matching bra/boyshort set - Black teddy - black sheer topped shorty gown/teddy - white sheer babydoll and thong - this gal had tremendous boobs and was wearing a bra under the outfit. So, I'd call it lingerie with some cop-outs ... PM me if you want a full-resolution photo (big picture - 3008 pixels by 2000 pixels).
