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 […]

However my days of merciless VS bashing may soon be over. After the unfortunate retailing debacle I’ll refer to “the PINK incident,” Victoria’s Secret seems to have realized the error of their ways […]

Well, it seems the Western prosperity bubble has burst. Again. Quite suddenly, phrases like “luxury lingerie” have turned scandalous, and it certainly appears as if the days of triple digit price tags for brassieres and knickers are behind us. Now that I’m back from my fantasy tour of Europe, the economy is hitting me hard too. Work is nearly impossible to find. No work means no money, and no money […]
