Comment on Style Analysis: Lace High-Waisted Knickers by Thursday http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/style-analysis-lace-high-waisted-knicker.html#comment-636603 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:52:04 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30328#comment-636603 The mislocation of the natural waist is so ubiquitous these days that so few people actually know what a waist actually is. I agree that only the La Perla briefs are high-waisted; the rest sit at the natural waist at best. The hipster emphasis that began in the 90′s is to blame – these days, anything above the hip line seems to get classified as high-waisted!
I think you’ll find that also, historically, until the late 60′s, early 70′s, knickers in general rose to the natural waist, and for a long time this wasn’t primarily for a control purpose. Aside from the rise and fall of fashion’s favoured midpoint throughout changing trends, the waist is the natural structural resting point for underwear, especially where non-stretch fabrics are concerned. Much less chance of losing your knickers when they fit snugly around the waist :)

Comment on Lingerie Review: Marie Jo ‘Catherine’ Bra Set by Thursday http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/lingerie-review-marie-jo-catherine-bra-set.html#comment-636535 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 03:33:53 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30007#comment-636535 I have to agree with other commenters that I love this set on you. I have stumbled across this brand previously as they seem to make a few styles in a 40B, but the price point is somewhat prohibitive for me. I’d be more likely to keep an eye out for sales now!

Comment on Product Review: Bandelettes by Catherine http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/product-review_bandelettes.html#comment-635879 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:29:16 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=30272#comment-635879 The moment I saw this product I jumped straight on their website to order the red ones, while I was there I ordered two black laces ones as well. I make my own garters to hold my stockings up out of the tops of old pantyhose, and these seem like a wonderful alternative – they are so pretty and stylish. Now I can’t wait to receive them in the mail! So thank you for pointing them out to me. I just hope my skin will stand up to the silicone bands.

Comment on 5 More Awesome Choices for Comfy Panties by Amelia Ashley http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2013/07/5-more-choices-for-comfy-panties-summer-edition.html#comment-632491 Tue, 21 Oct 2014 10:36:32 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=14746#comment-632491 I am in my 20′s, tall and slim. I find wearing thongs and brief panties rather uncomfortable compared to the high waist type I am now buying. I have two girlfriends who have also recently exchanged their thongs and briefs for the 50′s style. My question is, is this style becoming more popular amongst young women.

Comment on Lingerie Review: Dita von Teese ‘Star Lift’ Bra Set by Jwlhyfer de Winter http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/10/lingerie-review-dita-von-teese-star-lift-bra-set.html#comment-632286 Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:53:54 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=29694#comment-632286 I, too, am really enjoying this line. I have been buying it through Debenham’s in England whenever they have a sale, so I was getting it at really good prices, which helped. I bought the “Mancatcher”set and really want the Madame X, Her Sexcellency, La Parisienne and countess sets. I also bought the “Mancatcher” garter belt at Dark Garden in San Francisco; which carries the lingerie and also her perfumes. I have found sizing to be a little tricky, as it seems the retailers are not carrying a lot of stock in the larger sizes. This is really frustrating. Hopefully this will change as the line gets more popular. The quality is nice, with nice details and durability. I wear lingerie every day, so I need it to be pretty sturdy, and it is, even the delicate eyelash lace. I hope I can afford to get some more of the line, particularly some of the newer pieces. I really hope she continues to go in the direction she is going in; with more retro details and unusual designs. I’m dying to try her stockings, as well! I wonder if you’ve done a review of them…

I love the textures too – all that lace and netting makes it feel so much sexier for some reason.

These sound great except for the synthetic fibres and, alas, those silicone bands. Such bands on strapless bras tend to raise terrible welts on my skin even after a short wear so I wouldn’t be willing to try these out :(
