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.
The name of the dress made dievca laugh, but…

Perfect for the heat of August. XO
Finally, after nine years
of snouting through darkness
he inches up scarred bark
and cuts loose the yammer of desire:
the piercing one note of a jackhammer,
vibrating like a slow bolt of lightning
splitting the air
and leaving a smell like burnt tar paper.
Now it says Now it says Now
clinging with six clawed legs
and close by, a she like a withered ear,
a shed leaf brown and veined,
shivers in sync and moves closer.
This is it, time is short, death is near, but first,
first, first, first
in the hot sun, searing all day long
in a month that has no name:
this annoying noise of love. This maddening racket.
This – admit it – song.

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.

(dievca hopes she can wear them for Master.)
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.

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
