Boobie Trap Corsets!

Editor’s Note: As of February 2015, the site for Boobie Trap Corsets (and La Magia) appear to be defunct. Boobie Trap Corsets is selling one of their cherry print overbusts on e-bay for £99, 20% off the regular price of £125.00. I own a Boobie Trap corset in the Sailor Jerry print, and I really dig the cool, retro-inspired style combined with a modern shape and cut. The sweetheart neckline […]

If tulle isn’t your thing, the Rago high waist, full cut brief is also available in a delightful matte black satin. Coming in sizes S-4X, these panties retail for the shockingly reasonable price of $12.95 over at Dollhouse Bettie. You already know I bought a pair, and I honestly believe I like the feel of the satin even better than the powermesh. All things considered, this is definitely an A+ […]

Today, I’m reviewing the Rago High Waist Sheer Retro Pantie. Sold online at Dollhouse Bettie, these panties are made from an 81% nylon, 19% spandex blend and are machine washable. Available in sizes S-XXL (fitting waist sizes 26-34″), they only come in one color–black. Retail price is a reasonable $18.80 USD. The material is a slightly opaque powermesh tulle. While not as soft as the Kiss Me Deadly mesh knickers […]

I know Wolford tends to get all the press, but there are some other luxury hosiery brands coming out with some really spectacular designs this season. Falke is a European mainstay, and I think their new designs hit the right balance of trendy and timeless. A few of my favorites from this season… First are the Bardot tights. Layering knee highs over tights has been a popular look for a […]

I really don’t deal much with vintage nightgowns. My primary objects of affection, not surprisingly, usually involve a pair of stockings. Every once in awhile, though, I see something which makes me think I ought to broaden my horizons. Trishypoo’s vintage Gossard nightgown set is one of these times. For once, I’m just going to post the pictures and let them do the talking.

Time for another review! Today, the focus of my attention is Kiss Me Deadly’s chic, black, retro line Van Doren. Meant to be simple, versatile, and casual enough for everyday use, the Van Doren bra, briefs, and panties are an ideal subject for the new, more modest direction of my blog. I purchased the underwire bra (pictured left) in size 34 B. I purchased both the briefs and the panties […]
