Wild.

Check out these new leg suspenders from Stockingirl. According to the website, they work a lot like old fashioned sock garters. I can see how these might be more convenient than a garter belt or girdle, especially during the summer months, but I’m really wondering how comfortable they are and how well they stay up. Unfortunately, I’m not quite interested enough to conduct an experiment of my own.

Especially when they cost less than 5 bucks a pop.Figleaves.com currently has Jonathon Aston fishnet tights in black or beige for only $3.60. I’ve written about Jonathan Aston hosiery before, and I think they’re a great deal even when they’re full price (we can’t always drop $40.00 on the Wolford Twenties, after all). On sale, they’ve become an absolute necessity.

Like an addict always searching for her next fix, I’ve found another sinfully scrumptious bit of lingerie over on e-bay. You’re looking at the Esmee panty girdle. With a Buy It Now price of 49.99 GPB (approximately $74.26 USD), it fits waist measurements 24″-28″ and hip measurements 30″-36″. *sigh* If only my hips were a teeny bit smaller… The e-bay store is LoveChild Boudoir if you want to see any […]

E-bay has two really spectacular auctions going on right now. One is a sample from Starkers! Corsets. The other is an antique corset which appears to be from the early 1900’s. I believe I mentioned Starkers in my series of entries on how to buy a corset. Starkers is a Canada based company that’s well known for it’s innovative custom corsetry. The piece on auction is from their Dorris collection…basically, […]

vintage innovation

I was surfing e-bay the other day (as I am wont to do) and ran across the most delightful thing…a pair of vintage stockings hangers. Before now, I’d never even heard of a stockings hanger. While I do handwash my stockings, I usually just throw them on the towel rack to dry when I’m done. With six clips on each hanger, I could dry a week’s worth of stockings at […]
