June 2008

So I was checking my profile views today, and I have 500 readers! Yay! In celebration, I’m going to have a giveaway. It might be a garter. It might be a pair of stockings. It might be a suspender belt. But, whatever it is, I promise it’ll be something really cool. All you have to do is comment on this entry. All comments must be received by July 7, 2008. […]

It turns out La Perla hosiery really is quite nice. Are they worth the original price of $47.00? No. Are they worth the 30% off sale price of $32.99? Not quite, but they come pretty close. There’s a lot to like about these sheer thigh highs. The 82% Nylon/18% Elastane blend feels nice on the leg, pleasantly snug but not uncomfortably tight. At 15 denier, they have a nice, subtle […]

I just received an announcement from Dollhouse Bettie saying that they will soon release an exclusive, custom, handsewn design created entirely (after much painstaking labor) by the owner, Michelle. I think the garter apron/button bra set is rather cute. It reminds me of a cross between a country girl and a 1950’s housewife. No word yet on the price or if it will be available online as well as in […]

You need to buy a pair of hosiery gloves. Now. There. You can skip the rest of this entry if you like, but at least you’ve been told. Hosiery gloves are like preventative medicine for your stockings. The very last thing you want to do after spending money on quality hosiery is snag it with a hangnail. Believe me. I know. For years, I practiced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s a […]

My first two tries with garter panties have been more than a little disappointing. Nevertheless, they say the third time’s the charm, so I threw caution to the wind and bought the pair above from Etsy seller On The Inside. Details are scanty on her web store, but she says the panty is made from red mesh with black lace trim, and has four satin loops with detachable garters. They’re […]

In my opinion, if you’re going to spend hundreds of dollars on lingerie, then what you buy had better be a work of art. Something like the piece on the right, for example. You’re looking at the Gold Empress corset by Maya Hansen available exclusively at La Magia. Have a looksee. Not only is her work amazing, but she’s also the model in all the pictures! Save

Editor’s Note: HMS Latex closed their doors July 2014. I don’t believe I’ve yet raved about the wonders of Etsy. For those who don’t know, Etsy is considered the place online to buy and sell things homemade. Described as “a cross between Amazon, E-bay, and your grandma’s basement,” Etsy is a bit like an online craft fair, and it’s a great place for discovering unique and interesting items that you […]

I’m not sure why, but none of my purchases lately have really excited me. They’ve been nice, but that’s all. Call me demanding, but nice simply isn’t enough. I want to be wowed. I want to stimulated. I want to be thrilled, excited, and aroused. I want my fingers to quiver when I open the package to see what’s inside. I want my body to shiver when I first try […]

Editor’s Note: As of February 2015, it appears that Cameo Intimates is defunct. Above is the Cameo Intimates long line garter. Advertised as a shaping garment with firm control to flatten your hips and tummy, it is sewn from what appears to be stretch satin, available in seven colors (black, white, hot red, deep blue, wine, lemon yellow, soft pink), made to order in waist sizes 24″-40″, and customizable with […]
