DEAR READERS: On May 18, I printed a letter from a young woman who had been invited to a friend's lingerie shower. "Bringing a Blender in Montana" was uncomfortable with the idea of purchasing intimate apparel for the bride-to-be, so I suggested she bring a "high-necked flannel nightgown. " When I asked you readers to offer other gift suggestions, you responded with an avalanche of terrific responses. Thanks to all for your clever suggestions. Read on: DEAR ABBY: One of the most unique bridal-shower gifts I received was a set of pillowcases.

It might be the most successful panty raid in history. On Saturday, someone made off with 300 pairs of women's panties from the Victoria's Secret store in the Deptford Mall. That's about $4,500 in undies, according to a police report released yesterday. The panties were last seen at 11 a.m., arrayed on a red-felt-covered table a few feet from the front door. At 9:30 p.m. - closing time - an employee noticed that the table was empty. Nearly as unmentionable as the stolen goods were further details of the crime.

Valentine's Day, an occasion that even the state of Arizona recognizes, arrives this Friday. If the cliches hold true, you women have already bought and mailed his card. And his gift - a nice cordless drill, or a pair of ridiculous boxer shorts that will eventually become your fanciest dust rag - is already bought, wrapped and hidden. You men are presumably thinking about flowers, candy, dinner on the town or lingerie, but you haven't done a thing. It should not surprise you that when a Daily News editor assigns a pre- Valentine's Day story, the editor goes for the lingerie.

Hillary Rodham Clinton will star in an undie ad that'll begin appearing this weekend in Brazilian mags. The ad, for Duloren lingerie makers, features a photo of the first lady that unintentionally shows part of her panties beneath a tight skirt as she chatted away during a visit to Brazil last month. The copy reads: "Mr. President of the United States, Your Excellency cannot imagine what a Duloren can do. . . . A homage from Duloren to one of the most important women of the decade.

In 1947, he gave the American woman bras, nighties, peignoirs and panties, all in basic black. In 1952, he offered her panties that were crotchless. In 1981 his gift was edible panties and bras, in tutti frutti, pina colada, banana, cherry and passion fruit. Now, Mr. Frederick Mellinger of Hollywood is at it again. He knows exactly what his women want, and he's going to give it to them. Two-piece dresses with peplums and pleats. Chambray shirts and five-pocket denim jeans. Long, straight skirts that fall almost to the ankle.

They wanted proof. So after the party, a couple of the women grabbed the flimsy nighties, ran to the bedroom and turned off the lights. "It really works!" exclaimed Helene Polyak, 30, of Levittown, as the group returned to the party. And so it was true. A "Shining stars" nightie really did glow in the dark. How can you, too, be a constellation in your own home? you ask. Just attend an Undercover Wear party and order one of the nighties. The parties are similar to other home demonstrations for makeup, household goods and crystal - but with a little more spice.

There's a scene in Annie Hall in which Alvy Singer gives Annie a present, a transparent pink-and-black concoction that might loosely be called underwear. "Are you kidding?" says Annie. "This is more like a present for you. " Twenty years later, that probably still explains why so many men give sexy lingerie for Valentine's Day. Especially this year. "This should be a huge holiday, because it's on a Friday and people can make plans to go away for the weekend," says Wendy Wade, owner of the Lacey Lady in Hatboro.

Call it fantasy football. Sexual fantasy football. Leaving little to the imagination, the Eagles unveiled their 2005-06 cheerleaders' lingerie calendar this week with a fashion show at the NovaCare Center. The calendar shows the Eagles cheerleaders with most of the mystery removed, racier by a few provocative poses than the average Victoria's Secret catalog, and its introduction definitely was not family entertainment. As the calendar picture of each cheerleader flashed on a screen, the woman herself strutted across the stage in high heels clad in fancy underwear - which was still a good deal more than most of them were wearing in a lingerie calendar with a minimal amount of lingerie.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a senior in high school and about to graduate. The week after graduation, one of my close friends is getting married. I have no qualms about the marriage, but I'm confused about the pre-wedding parties. The bride and groom are registered at three stores and have had a Tupperware party already. However, I have received an invitation to a lingerie party to which guests have been instructed to bring the bride lingerie with gift receipts attached. Am I wrong in thinking that buying intimate apparel is the responsibility of the couple?

When I was a bride, I had a wedding "trousseau," a kind of bridal bonanza of stuff: pots and pans and linens and luggage. But it also included what I considered the best part: lingerie - nightgowns made of filmy, floaty fabrics in lush colors like baby blue and peach, and even one clingy black one. For a brief blink of time, I felt like a Hollywood starlet. Then along came real life: mortgages, taxes, head colds, compromise, trips to the hardware store for ant traps - and kids.

D EAR ABBY: I have dated a lot of women over the years - including actresses, beauty-contest winners and models. Every one of them, except my current live-in, "Amanda," would dress up in lingerie when I asked them to. Amanda adamantly refuses. She says if I love her, I should be turned on whether she's nude or wearing lingerie. Part of the problem is she's not in the best shape, and the lingerie would hide that. I have tried bargaining with her, but she won't agree. She doesn't understand why I'm not chasing her around all the time.

THE GARTERS go but the booty shorts stay. The midriff-baring tops stay, too. Along with a uniform tweak, officials announced in January that the Lingerie Football League, which was started in 2009 by Mitchell Mortaza, had been renamed the Legends Football League. Sexy-sounding team names such as the Philadelphia Passion and the Cleveland Crush won't change, though. "I like the name change because the emphasis is on the football now," Passion coach Chandler Brown said. "It's not so much on what they're wearing.

MOST RETAILERS celebrated Black Friday last weekend, but for a small struggling shop in South Philly, Black Friday was yesterday. Valerie and Phil Cuttino were worried sick that their six-month-old plus-size lingerie boutique, Lovely's Lingerie, wouldn't make it through the month of December. Ever since they'd opened on May 5, foot traffic had been lousy and visits to LovelysLingerie.net, which features provocative undergarments in sizes up to 10X, had only averaged about 200 a day. Even though it's the only store of its kind in the area, the future of Lovely's Lingerie looked bleak.

IN THE WAKE of Monday's night call by the NFL's replacement officials, the Lingerie Football League released a statement regarding its own officials. Here is the statement from Tyler DeHaven, of LFL media relations: "Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field occurrences of incompetent officiating, we chose to part ways with a crew which apparently is now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.
