2013's Most Popular "Sexy" Halloween Costumes Might Surprise You

As Halloween obsessives, the stereotypical "sexy" getup is like a thorn in our side. A bandage dress and novelty headband do not a costume make, especially when there are so many other opportunities to show off your wit, DIY skills, and pop-culture knowledge — not to mention the nice pieces you can add to your non-Halloween wardrobe, too.
That said, we're actually pleasantly surprised with sexy-costume purveyor Yandy's list of the top five looks from its stock this year (based on Facebook Likes). No sexy nurse or sexy cat garb here, folks. Instead, we've got junk food and a whale, which, in the grand scheme of barely there guises, aren't the worst things people could dream up. And, if you're truly considering buying one of these, let Yandy's gift-with-purchase deal tip you over the edge: You get a free, deluxe lace panty with every order. How's that for scary?
