some of the nicest affordable lingerie i've seen have been in white, but i always feel like white is too bridal-y to wear so i never get what i like because "what if". i was wondering if this is an attitude you've encountered frequently.
Not really, but then I’m a pretty big advocate of people wearing whatever they want, whenever they want, however they want. If you like white lingerie better than any other color, wear it. The only ‘what if’ that counts is ‘what if it makes you happy.’ (sent from my mobile device; please excuse typos)
Just so people don't think badly of Ann Summers. As far as we are aware the stockings are running low as the old sizing is being faded out. Where before they were SM/MED and L/XL they are now being remade, repackaged and given more range with small to extra large but seperately and with xl being bigger. :) xx
Adding to my last message I am wondering if white lace lingerie would make a workable alternative to blacks and reds ? or will white look too demure or virginal for such a death defying feat of magic :) ?
I can’t dictate your personal taste to you, lovely. You know the setting for your performance better than I do, and you know what colors you like better than I do. If you have a specific question I can help with, I’m more than happy to, but I can’t decide on a look for you.
Hi for a charity event I am going to be magically sawed in half through my waist in a thrilling buzzsaw illusion. I plan to dress as sexy as I dare for it and have been informed that I can wear Lingerie for it if I desire. So advice on what Lingerie I should be considering and the styles / colours that will look good on stage ?
Well, I don’t know your taste or your style, so I can’t just recommend anything, but if you want to keep “for the stage” in mind, burlesque-style lingerie may be a good place to start.
Leg Avenue has a burlesque collection that could probably translate well to the stage, and Trashy Lingerie also has some great Showgirl style costumes that could work well under lights.
But without knowing anything else about the event or the lighting or even what you like, that’s pretty much where my recommendations end. :-)
A while ago you posted a message from a fan about breast tissue moving into the underarm if the wrong cup size is worn- this happened to me! I've been wearing 'professionally fitted' bras that made my back hurt and breasts bruise, but now I'm in a 38H instead of a 40DD my natural breast shape has changed and everything's smoother. Thank you for helping to educate women and save breasts everywhere!
Yay!!! That makes me so happy. :-D
For anyone reading this who didn’t catch that earlier message, Butterfly Collection worked their online bra-fitting magic and helped one of my followers. They’re the only company I know that does Skype fittings, so for my readers who don’t live near a lingerie boutique, I always recommend them.
How the heck are boy shorts suppose to fit? I hear plus sized women rave about them all the time at work but I finally bought a pair and they just look awkward on me? I am so confused. Women both smaller than me and bigger than me rave about these suckers. Where am I going wrong?
You may have just stumbled onto a brand that doesn’t work for your body type, lovely. I’m a huge fan of boyshorts (they’re pretty much all I wear…and I don’t think of myself as plus-sized), but not everyone cuts theirs the same way.
I like the boyshorts from Hanky Panky, Betsey Johnson, and Between the Sheets best. If you’ve got a big booty (like I do), I’ve found that some of the more popular brands (like Honeydew and Commando) just can’t handle it.
So, to answer your question, I’d try again with a different brand. And if they still don’t work, they just may not be the panty for you.
Are expensive silk stockings worth the $? If so, why? Are they more durable than their less-expensive counterparts? Thank you! xx
Hmmm…to me, that’s a bit like asking if silk lingerie is worth the $. If you like silk, then yes. If you don’t care one way or another, then no.
If you’re going to splurge on any kind of luxury stocking though (and silk definitely qualifies as luxury), then invest in a pair of hosiery gloves and a quality hosiery wash so they last as long as possible.
What would be your favorite lingerie ensemble for the wedding night? Or evening wedding day?
Hmmm…great question, especially since I’m engaged too!
Without revealing what I plan on purchasing for the wedding night, I will say that pieces which are easy, loose, and flowing seem like a good idea. After all the excitement of the wedding day, the thought of changing into a super sexy, complicated get-up makes me tired just thinking about it. So I’d go for ‘effortlessly sexy’ pieces like robes, chemises, and teddies, preferably in fabrics like lace, chiffon, or silk so the lingerie still feels special.
As far as the actual wedding day (I’m guessing you mean during the ceremony, yes?), I recommend comfort above all. You’ll have so much on your mind, that your lingerie should be one of the things you don’t have to think about.
Encouraged by a robust market for high luxury, a cache of European innerwear brands is testing new price thresholds with, ahem, top-drawer lines.
They’re still feeling their way with this niche category, noting that such pricy items call for intensive service and client interaction, along with exceptional finishing, materials and performance qualities. Subscription RequiredFor More
Hi Lovely. I apologize if you've gotten this question before, but I was wondering how you feel about the old "add 4" rule to bra measuring. I have realized recently just how poorly my bras fit (thanks to a bad fitter), and I am trying to figure out my correct size, but boy is there ever a lot of conflicting information out there!
Great question! My feelings are that plus four works for some people (like me), but doesn’t work for everyone…and that’s okay.
I think it’s more important to know how a bra is *supposed* to fit (especially since sizing varies so much by brand) than it is to be a devotee of any one formula.
