dievca spotted this lovely photo from an Agent Provocateur email. she was excited to see an edge and presetntation that has been missing from the company’s recent offerings. she misses the quirk, sassiness and humor they used to offer.
Then she clicked through to see the item…
What dievca thought was a body suit or soft corset turn out to be a dress with mini ruffles and lace. At $1545 only the back is of interest. Yawn~
Agent Provocateur Peachy Dress
dievca was interested in sharing this washable silk set from Lunya $198 because of the lovely colors and sensual slouchy fit. With 4.5 stars out of 1258 reviews, she thought it sounded good. Then dievca read the one star and two star reviews — customer service is slow to respond, the set wrinkles easily while sleeping or after washing and the large tee with small shorts might not be that sexy…
Such a bummer because dievca is loving the colors, but the colors only come with the sleep sets….
Do we give it a try or pass?

Master appreciates corsets and stockings, but once in awhile things need to be changed up. Using the Tanga Panties above as inspiration – dievca pulled out her Simone Pérèle lingerie which works well with her curves. Her offering just happened to be orange in honor of Halloween! No stockings, as it was too warm – but it made a lovely offering of her a**.
Fleur du Mal may have us Going Bananas with their Limited Edition lingerie, but it may have started with the lovely and talented Josephine Baker.
On June 3, 1906, Josephine Baker was born Freda Josephine McDonald in the slums of St. Louis. Growing up, she cleaned houses and babysat for the wealthy. At the age of 15, Baker was recruited for the St. Louis Chorus vaudeville show; from there, she went to Harlem where she performed in musicals. Eventually, she landed a gig in France as part of an all-black revue, at a salary of $1,000 a month; she emigrated in 1925.
It was the summer of 1926 at the Folies Bergère in Paris. Hordes of white Parisians flocked to the famed theater to see La Revue Nègre, a musical show that emerged from France due to the country’s fascination with jazz culture. And there, wearing little more than strings of pearls, wrist cuffs, and a skirt made of 16 rubber bananas, Josephine Baker descended from a palm tree onstage, and began to dance. This dance—the danse sauvage—is what established her as the biggest black female star in the world.
During World War II, Baker aided the French Resistance by smuggling secret messages in invisible ink on her musical sheets. She hid Jewish refugees and weapons in her château that Bakerskin (her line of skin darkening and hair slicking products) had helped pay for. In 1963, she was, notably, the only official female speaker to give an address at the March on Washington. She received the Croix de Guerre, the Médaille de la Résistance, and Légion d’Honneur. After she died on April 12, 1975, more than 20,000 people crowded the streets of Paris to watch the funeral procession on its way to L’Église de la Madeleine. The French government honored her with a 21-gun salute, making Josephine Baker the first American woman buried in France with full military honors.
In August 2021, it was announced that Josephine Baker is set to become the first Black woman to have her remains reburied in the Panthéon monument in Paris — one of the highest honors in France. French president Emmanuel Macron made the announcement writing that Baker “held high the motto of the French Republic.”
Fashion-wise – offstage, Josephine’s style was developed by Paul Poiret and Madeleine Vionnet, two of the leading couturiers in the ’20s. Her alluring choices have been seen more recent when Beyoncé paid homage to Baker by wearing a banana skirt in her 2006 Fashion Rocks performance. Miley Cyrus following in 2014.
At the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards, when Rihanna wore a sheer Baker-inspired dress. The Spring 2011 Prada collection and the 2016 Marc Jacobs’s Fall runway notably referenced Baker’s signature gelled hair.
Or, perhaps, Charlotte Olympia’s Banana Pumps are enough quirk to honor Josephine!

A new lease of life for tattoos
Etched into our skin for thousands of years, tattoos have become artistic as well as aesthetic. A phenomenon that has broken all the boundaries of fashion.
For a long time, tattoos conjured up the tribal images of ancient cultures and exotic peoples, with enormous symbols covering the arms, backs and torsos of Polynesian, Maori and Japanese people, for example. And rightly so: for centuries, tattoos represented a rite of passage, symbols of protection or a sign of belonging to a particular clan or tribe.
Until the trend took off again around 1990 to 2000. From the shower of tiny stars on the back of Rihanna’s neck to the giant words and patterns on David Beckham’s body, these permanent markings have become extremely fashionable. The Musée du Quai Branly in Paris hosted an exhibition on tattoos in 2015.
As a way to stand out from the crowd or express your personality, tattoos have become like a second skin. They can be proudly shown off, or reserved for only the most intimate views.
For a submissive (or partner) who has sensitive nipples – tactile play can become very erotic. Seeing hard nipples erupt through a soft sweater is inviting and enticing. Touching and playing with those nipples – may shoot Joy through both Top and bottom.
If you cannot get your nipples to harden by cold or pinching and want to visually please your partner there are:
And if you don’t have access to nipples at the moment – you can create a boob handwarmer with upcycled cashmere (click photo for link)!

The brand will continue to evolve, but the promise is always the same: we choose the softest fabrics in the most comfortable shapes.

dievca has been on the search for a simple unlined full-cup bra. This Agent Provocateur “Lucky” Bra looks like a possibility – you can get it lined or unlined. The only problem is the bottoms don’t look super practical for larger bodies.
Underwear is a secret that a dievca shares with herself. It’s an identity she hides under her clothes, a part of her feminine mystique she keeps tucked away from the eyes of the general public. Perhaps she shares it with a partner~ perhaps not.
A lady’s choice of panties has a lot to do with her style. You might be able to guess what kind of underwear she’s got on under a pencil skirt or maxi dress. Maybe she isn’t wearing anything at all?
What a woman chooses to don under her outer garments also says a lot about her personality. Whether she prefers comfort to sexy or cotton to lace, every girl’s panty preference gives a lot of insight into the woman she is.
Whether she’s a go-getter or a laid-back kind of woman, you can bet her panties reflect her personal mantras as well as her aspirations.
So, what does your underwear choice say about your personality?
You’re a sporty girl with a great butt. Nothing looks quite as adorable as a pair of ass cheeks hanging out the back of a pair of flirty boy shorts. You’re the kind of girl who dresses for herself and your style is easy-going and free.
You’re the kind of woman people depend on, one who can lead a group with comfort and ease. You’re innovative and charismatic, but you’re also very social and friendly.
You’re a go-getter and a hard worker. You put comfort first so you can always be on your game. You don’t have time to waste buying expensive, frilly panties when you have so much on your plate.
You are a bad bitch! There’s no argument about it. A thong is the staple of the Alpha Female, the leader of the pack. You take no sh*t from anyone.
You might be a little (read: a lot) intimidating; no one will argue you’re anything but fierce.
You’re the one your friends look to when making plans and you’re the one they go to when seeking guidance. You’re sexy as hell and definitely a man-eater.
You hold your own in every relationship and are never afraid to speak your mind.
You’re into clean lines, but also staying super comfy throughout your exhausting 9-5 workday. You’d much rather be snuggled up with a marathon of “GoT” than have to slave away over a report for your boss.
Sometimes people call you lazy, but it just isn’t the case. You’re just super chill and would rather spend your time doing you than doing mindless bullsh*t for The Man.
You want to be dancing at music festivals, not dancing around office gossip. You don’t have time or patience for other people’s sh*t.
Your dream life would consist of lying on a beach somewhere, catching rays with a gorgeous man, sipping cocktails from coconuts and washing your worries away in the ocean. You were made for the island life, not life chained to a desk.
You’re the ultimate free spirit, and you own it.
There are two things about you that make you likable and awesome: First, you like to be comfortable and you give zero f*cks about what anyone thinks about your underwear choices, and secondly, you’re definitely quirky and you’re cool with it.
Incidentally, your ginormous underwear choice also likely means you aren’t getting laid often. (Sorry.) It also indicates you aren’t one for skinny jeans or mini skirts.
You’re a woman who prefers a date with Netflix over a date with a man, and knows the only person you’ve got to answer to is yourself.
You are a hot mama and aren’t afraid to show it. You’re a sexually-free woman who marches to the beat of her own drum.
You enjoy the company of men more than you do women, having always found more comfort in the male species as guys make you feel at ease. I guess there’s just something about catty women that’s always repelled you.
You’re the life of the party — never afraid of the last shot or taking on a bet from one of your friends. You have problems with limits because you never want to stop having fun.
You’re a laidback girl with everything on her mind but settling down. Your brain is on your next big project or your impeding promotion.
You’re quiet and shy, but not meek. You like to keep to yourself because you know it’s the best way to get sh*t done.
You aren’t running around, desperate for new friends. You’re loyal to a fault and always have your BFFs back when she needs you.
You keep your close friends close and couldn’t care less if you’re the belle of the ball or with everyone else.
Did you know going commando is actually really, really good for your health? Your vagina will thank you and we all know if your vagina is happy, you’re happy.
You’re an easy-going girl who doesn’t have time to f*ck with something as arbitrary as underwear. Why would you want to make extra laundry when you can forgo the laundromat by skipping out on panties?
You’re a problem-solver who’d rather spend her time enjoying the sunshine than sitting inside folding her clothes.
You live life with so much passion, and you find the endless beauty in every single thing. People admire your positive energy.
Girls want to be you, and guys want to be with you. You’re genuine, and it shines through and through.
So, which pair speaks to you or your Dominant?

Lucie Ann lingerie was founded in 1947 by Lucie Ann Onderwyzer (1913-1988). She became renowned for her extensive use of nylon tricot peignoirs trimmed with marabou. Based in Beverly Hills, California, her lingerie found favor with the stars, and was featured in the TV series Green Acres, being worn by star Eva Gabor. After Onderwyzer’s death, the business was sold, and the label changed to Lucie Ann II. This line is still in production.
The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup
In the computer world, the “backend” refers to any part of a website or software program that users do not see. It contrasts with the frontend, which refers to a program’s or website’s user interface. In programming terminology, the backend is the “data access layer,” while the frontend is the “presentation layer.”

Definition of cincher
: a tight woman’s undergarment that is worn to shape and compress the waist // a waist cincher
The hand-span waists so beloved by Dior were achieved by foundation garments, of which the most popular was the waist cincher. Called the “waspie” or “guepiere”, it became the quintessential undergarment of the “New Look”. Boned and back-laced, it differed from the Victorian corset of decades past primarily in its length, usually only 6 to 7 inches. Fashion magazines of the time stressed that it was “super-light weight” and contained “feather boning”. Such garments were worn tightly cinched at the waist, usually over a girdle. The combination was described by Anne Fogarty, an American dress designer who popularized the “New Look” in the US: “To maintain your figure at its flattering best, depend on foundation garments to control and distribute; a cinch or tight belt to restrain.”
