Underpinings – a frank discussionPosted: March 3, 2016
Gentlemen — you may or may not be interesting in this discussion. Feel free to join in, lurk or click yourself away. dievca is talking underwear and frustration….
Years ago, when dievca was in her mid 30’s, she became obsessed with matching underwear. she never really worried about it before, but it became a bit of an obsession. Master doesn’t realize it because he sees the good stuff (which matches). But friends tease dievca because her everyday comfort wear is very practical, sporty and matches.
Victoria’s Secret had the answer with their Body by Victoria series. Full Coverage, unlined bras with matching underwear. No bows, no dangly things between the breasts, no sparkles, no skimping on the size of the cup. dievca bought matching sets in every color: fuscia, teal, brown, red, marigold, orange, white, nude, black, light pink, burgundy, olive-green. she kept going back to add sets until the design of the bras changed. After years, the sets are dying and dievca is holding onto the remnants while searching for a solution.
she thought she got lucky, again, at Victoria’s Secret. Victoria’s Secret T-shirt bra – unlined. OK, so there was sparkly material but she would survive…no time to try the bras on in the store, dievca got the bras home and there was a serious problem. Yes, they were unlined, but they were a demi-cup and not full coverage. Well, let’s just say that dievca’s cups spilleth over. Double boob is not attractive at all — back they went. No cup size up because everything was on sale – the 34th Street store was a mess.
Disgusted…dievca cleared out the really messy pieces in her lingerie drawer and started to wear the 2nd tier leftovers….the non-matching stuff…the athletic stuff…and the really good stuff that isn’t super comfortable for everyday….while keeping a lookout for a new brand/new sets.
Aha! dievca found some replacements online, a little fancier, but on sale and….THEY FIT!
An Indigo and Green set from Blush called “Sweetest Sin”. dievca will be watching for other colors!
And, yes, she did get the set at the top of the post from Blush, too. That set is called “Pretty Pleasure”, but it’s no longer available on the Blush website. Sorry.
And if Master surprises dievca? she will be elegantly clad at all times, right? XO
