But, if you’re looking for a bra that also provides a shapewear effect, longline bras may not be the best choice . A Bustier extends to the hipline and is designed for sculpting the torso as well as providing cleavage enhancement. Longline bras are meant more for fashion than function.

Fleur du Mal Butterfly lingerie
It’s Sunday morning and dievca is watching the clouds drift.
she took a look for silk cloud pattern items (dress, bedding, lingerie) and didn’t come up with much. There is a Moncler cotton cloud pattern dress that didn’t have attractive photographs. This micro-mesh dress from LA Angeles Apparel and fabric by the yard in polyester.
Nothing that dievca is too interested in at the moment – she’s going back to watching the clouds.
Vivienne Westwood, the designer who defined the look of punk, using rock iconography, royalty, art and religion as recurring motifs in collections that brought a rebellious edge to British style, and who later went on to a long career in high fashion, died on Thursday in the Clapham neighborhood of South London. She was 81.

Starting in 1996, Victoria’s Secret set out to create the most expensive bras in the world. Encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones, these beautiful creations have been crafted with the help of the best jewelers in the world.
Unfortunately, Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras usually only last for a year. Without a seller, they go back to the jeweler, where they’re dismantled. That hasn’t stopped them from taking over the imagination of millions. See the most expensive bras in the world.
Red Hot Fantasy Bra – $15 million:
Worn by Gisele Bündchen for the 2000 Victoria’s Secret show, the Red Hot Fantasy Bra was the most expensive ever made, but the price tag included the panty. Using 1,300 jemstones, international jewelry designer Mouawad created a stunning bra that truly earned it’s “Fantasy” name and included 300 carats of Thai rubies.
The Victoria’s Secret show ha long been a high-profile branding vehicle, a glossy commercial-meets-fashion fantasy in which supermodels strut down the rundway to pop star musical accompaniment. But ratings were declining. In Dec. 2018, the Done+Dusted-produced Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on ABC, which featured Shawn Mendes and Bebe Rexha, brought in 3.3 million viewers. That’s down from 6.7 million in 2016 and 9.7 million in 2013.
So the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Fantasy Bra’s were canceled in 2019.

Its interesting that an elegant and erotic lingerie is named after a Goddess who is depicted as matronly.
Hera (/ˈhɛrə, ˈhɪərə/; Greek: Ἥρα, translit. Hḗrā; Ἥρη, Hḗrē in Ionic and Homeric Greek) is the goddess of marriage, women and family, and the protector of women during childbirth. In Greek mythology, she is queen of the twelve Olympians and Mount Olympus, sister and wife of Zeus, and daughter of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. One of her defining characteristics in myth is her jealous and vengeful nature in dealing with any who offend her, especially Zeus’ numerous adulterous lovers and illegitimate offspring.
Her iconography usually presents her as a dignified, matronly figure, upright or enthroned, crowned with a polos or diadem, sometimes veiled as a married woman. She is the patron goddess of lawful marriage. She presides over weddings, blesses and legalizes marital unions, and protects women from harm during childbirth. Her sacred animals include the cow, cuckoo and the peacock. She is sometimes shown holding a pomegranate, as an emblem of immortality. Her Roman counterpart is Juno.

dievca caught up with Master for their Anniversary. she was keeping it simple with a Blush Lingerie “Sweetest Sin” Chamise. The only problem was it was a bit small on the top so her breasts were — lets say— a bit “unrestrained”.
It was a dievca disaster in the making except for fact that Master loved it!
A bit more practical on the Lingerie end, today.
dievca got a new set from Else Lingerie and its
Simple and Lovely.
The temperature hit 76 F (25 C), dievca’s back was sweating from her backpack while cycling to the Dermatologist. After getting a clear Skin Cancer Screening – dievca stopped by a Nail Salon for a Mani/ Pedi to pretty up her tootsies for Master.
Now, dievca doesn’t always follow the season’s “hot” colors – she chooses what speaks to her in the moment. This color was created by OPI in 2012: Suzi and the 7 Dusseldorfs.
We’ll see if Master appreciates the grooming or the lingerie. XO

A bodystocking or body stocking is a one-piece skin-tight garment that covers the torso, legs and sometimes the arms of the wearer. It is a foundation garment or an article of lingerie usually made from a sheer fabric similar to that used for stockings or pantyhose, or from fishnet, lace or an opaque material, or a variation of these materials.
A bodystocking differs from a unitard, which is worn as an outfit or article of clothing, and a leotard, which is used as a practice garment or performance costume for acrobats, gymnasts and other similar performers. Designed to be revealed, but not to be too revealing, bodystockings may be worn as undergarments by performers such as belly dancers and exotic dancers.
Bodystockings are put on through the neck, in a similar technique to putting on a pair of tights.
Due to its design, and its close-fitting and one-piece aspect, the wearer may have to remove the bodystocking in order to urinate or defecate, but crotchless bodystockings are available.
The first notable occasion of a bodystocking being seen was with American actress Adah Isaacs Menken, who wore a bodystocking in 1861. It was during the play Mazeppa, based on Byron’s “Mazeppa”, in which she played a Ukrainian man who was tied nude to the back of a wild horse by his enemies. In the scene Menken wore a flesh colored bodystocking to preserve her modesty while giving the illusion of nudity. The practice created controversy.
A body stocking was used in a tableau vivant style short film The Birth of the Pearl (1901), which featured an unnamed long-haired young model wearing a flesh-colored body stocking in a direct frontal pose and provided a provocative view of the female body. An ode to the Birth of Venus.
Your Master or Mistress may see you nude on any occasion they choose – so perhaps a Bodystocking can be enticing as a Presentation Outfit.

A longline bra is one that has extra fabric that extends below the bust. Sometimes this extra fabric is just a few inches in length, while other styles cover most of the torso down to around the belly button or waistline. Originally, most longline bras were designed to create a trimmer waistline.
They are often confused with Bustiers and Corsets. However, longline bras are only technically defined by the band (the part under the cups that goes around the torso) extending further down the torso down to around the belly button/waistline. It is essentially an extended bralette with benefits!
One of the perks of a longline bra is that it looks flattering on every body type. The longer band provides extra support for the breasts. That means they are excellent for fuller-busted women as they can help alleviate back pain, stress on shoulder straps, and distribute weight better while still achieving lifted breasts.
Other instances where a longline bra might not work:
- Smaller-busted women (if sized wrong, the band can roll up)
- Women with a shorter torso (if sized wrong, the band can roll up) – uh, dievca’s problem…
- Women with wide set breasts – they need cups that tilt inward like a plunge bra
Sizing for longline bras can sometimes be a little tricky. This is because not only are you sizing for a bra, but also a torso measurement that must be accounted for. The most important thing to have correct is the band size- and don’t be surprised if this is different for longline bras than other bra styles.
Sizing can be a challenging for petite women. To help the band not roll and hit the right location so it’s not uncomfortable, try going a size down to ensure it is snug and not loose on the skin.

The best pin-up position after knee surgery.
dievca’s been practicing for Master.
dievca has moved north to stay with friends in Scandinavia for the second week of her vacation. she planned her packing around the option to do laundry at their house when she arrived. Running a full load is better than a small load so she gathered clothing from the family to fill the washing machine.
The first load of colored clothing was ready to hang outside to dry, and a tiny thong slipped out:
to drop into dievca’s hand. It’s from one of the daughters – who just got back from a trip to Spain with her boyfriend. dievca just started laughing. It’s been a long time, Babe, since dievca has worn such a tiny slip of lace. Ah, to be young, confident and tiny! XO
