Offering yourself or seeking release from the day?
dievca’s shoulders relax and she finds home kneeling in front of Master,
while He is sitting in His chair.
The Mid-Century Modern Wenger Papa Bear (Teddy Bear) Chair:
dievca has moved and her furniture doesn’t work in the new space, so she is on the look out for a pair of new armchairs, coffee table, stools, bench, etc. Currently, she has a large aubergine Contempo Design leather chair for Master. It’s too bulky. she needs something lighter more open and she went looking for a pair of armchairs, yesterday.
Unknowingly, her tastes ran towards the Wegner Classic 290 Easy Chair!
But, at a $2700 price tag, each – she had to look at similar options at lower prices:
and ended up with:
Apparently both Master and dievca admire Wenger chairs.
dievca is hoping that Master will find His place in the new armchairs
with His dievca kneeling before Him.
Hans J. Wenger
As a driving force behind ‘Danish Modern’, Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public’s view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title ‘the Master of the Chair’. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness.

Gentlemen (and Ladies), please weigh in on your opinions about the pointy-shaped brassieres. Cones, Conical, Bullet and Torpedo. dievca’s not sure what she thinks…
Your breasts would lead the way into any room…
What is a Cone Bra?
A cone bra is the bras of the 1940s, lifting and separating with a subtle conical shape. Cone bras are not padded and give a soft feminine silhouette.
What is a Bullet Bra?
A bullet bra is a distinctive type of bra that creates a pointed or bullet shape to the breasts. This is achieved by spiral stitching which emphasizes a pointed appearance. The bullet bra was built on the softly conical bras of the 1940s but with a much more defined finish.
Conical Bras vs Bullet Bras
The term conical bra is often uses interchangeably with bullet bra which can make things more than a little confusing. The conical or cone bra has a less defined shape and lacks the spiral stitching that truly defines a bullet bra.
What about the Torpedo Bra?
The torpedo is the distinctive shape created by the bra, a pointed or torpedo shape to the breasts. This is achieved by spiral stitching which emphasizes a pointed appearance. Bullet bras are often called torpedo bras and vice versa.
Overwire bras are another popular 50s shape. Overwire bras (as the name suggests) are made up of a soft cup, often sculpted, and a wire running around the top of the bust – they are strapless but give great support – making them an excellent choice for strapless gowns and tops.
Thinking of you,
Wishing you well,
May the year 2018 treat you right!
Love to you and yours!
Repost from June 29th, 2014 with the addition of defining a Nightgown.
What is a Nightgown?
A nightgown, nightie or nightdress is a loosely hanging item worn for sleeping. In the past it was worn by men and women, today, it is almost exclusively worn by women. The nightgown acquired prominence during the Victorian Era. From that early stage, nightgowns were being used to keep one on winter nights and as a stylish home wear as well.
- A nightgown may have any neckline, and may have sleeves of any type, or be sleeveless, and any shoulder strap or back style.
- The length of a nightgown may vary from hip-length to floor-length. A short nightgown can be called a “shortie” or a “babydoll”, depending on the style. The sweep (taper from top to bottom) of the night-gown can vary from almost straight, to full circle sweep.
- A nightgown may be made from cotton, silk, satin, or nylon and may be decorated with lace appliqués or embroidery at the bust and hem.
- A slip nightgown may be used as a nightgown or as a full slip.
- Nightgowns may be worn with a matching outer garment, a robe, sheer chiffon peignoir or dressing gown, to make them proper for receiving guests.
