Hi Cora, I hope you don't find this question foolish but I was wondering if seamed stockings could look good on ppl with a darker skin complexion. I'm only seeing pictures of them on fair skinned models and I just want to make sure I won't be wasting my money as I plan to buy a pair or so soon.
Not a foolish question. Seamed stockings look good on people off all types of complexions. The most important thing is making sure that if you choose to buy a “nude” pair, it actually matches your skintone as opposed to the skintone of the model.
Cora, do you know of any bras that lean more towards bullet bras, but aren't too....extreme? I have a friend who has something that isn't really a classic bullet bra, but it just makes her breasts look very perky underneath her dresses. I asked the brand and where she got it, but the tag was cut off and it was her mothers bra in the 80s. All hope may be lost! Any suggestions?
Triumph makes one (which we reviewed here). I also purchased a Gelmart bullet-esque bra style from The Loved One over Cyber Monday and Dollhouse Bettie carries this one from Rago.
I mean affordable as in anything under around $50, in the style of Marlies Dekkers. I've come across a few on high street stores but they all seem to be from a few seasons ago and sold out.
The only Marlies Dekkers knock-off I’ve seen lately is by Cacique.
Marlies Dekkers tends to defend their trademark look pretty strongly (and rightfully so). After winning a copyright lawsuit against a Netherlands company last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if other European lingerie brands are a bit slow to copy them now.
