If you bought one from Fused Hawaii that has the Kohanaiki Top to hold those glorious breasts and the Kona Bottom to hug your spectacular curves without showing God & Country spillage.

Today is Thursday — Lingerie Day.

dievca took the “Red Eye” from LAX and even though she slept in Mint Class, she was brainless upon arrival and mixed up her days.

If you were stopping by the blog for Lingerie Day — the original lingerie post was yesterday.

Which brings us to today.
A second “lingerie” post.

When writing this post dievca was thinking about a friend who is coming from Europe to stay with her for 10 days. Her friend is a photographer and wants to take photos of dievca — knowing full well that dievca HATES to be photographed.  dievca is working on this issue by taking occasional random selfies. Terrible selfies – but she read somewhere you get better in front of the camera then more photos you are in.

Yes, it is working. dievca tilts her chin correctly so it doesn’t look like a double chin, she squints her eyes a bit to soften the wrinkles. Her smiles are not as “toothy”, etc.
But she is going to tell you that there are people who are just naturally photogenic.
dievca is not one of the them….”Better on Broadway.” (Better Live)

A dievca can dream~

The photo above is lovely. It’s from a Boudoir Photographer in LA.

Rhiannon Panopoulos is the creative photographer and CEO of Alloria Winter creating Boudoir & Ethereal photos for the Everyday Woman.

Her enchanted closet contains:

dievca is not in her 20’s, but it would have been fun to try to see if the boudoir photographer in LA. could work magic on an aging submissive…..ah well, a missed opportunity.

Maybe you are bolder than dievca and ready for your Boudoir shots or your Mistress or Sir requested photos. Check out the website.

dievca is just going to let her friend give it a go, disaster or not, it will make her friend happy.
For dievca, it’s a form of submission.


Tattoo Lingerie

In CA, dievca ran into a number of people (Men and Women) of a certain age (late 20’s to mid 30’s) with tattoos.  Not just one tattoo on the hip or back — the ones that covered arms and legs +. And they loved them, wanted to talk about them, tell how much or how little pain there was in the process. (Is this a form of needle play?)

dievca felt a little weird, looking at the pieces up close and it dawned on her that most of her age group doesn’t have tattoos or they have a shamrock on their ankle.  Is it an age thing? A CA thing? dievca doesn’t know~

If you are not into getting a tattoo, you can always do tattoo lingerie:

But the sets of tattoo lingerie dievca really liked were the true tattoos covering mastectomy scars:

Summer Lingerie

dievca was thinking about Summer and lingerie. Walking on a veranda in bare feet and a light robe. Her mind wandered to fabrics which breathe and are light, such as silk and cotton. She ran into some simple pieces:

The Vermont Store Cotton Seersucker Robe Teal

Peruvian Collection Belle Epoque Cotton Floral Robe

Only Hearts Silk Robe

Lauren RL Ballet Long Nightgown

Hanro Pleated Juliet Cotton Nightgown

Agent Provocateur Baroness Silk Chemise

Olivia von Halle Silk Satin Pajama Set

But honestly…in the summer, dievca sleeps in the nude.


Spring/Summer Refashioned

With moving, dievca has combed her closets and taken items to resale (Buffalo Exchange), dropped items at Goodwill and Housing Works and listed items on eBay. Whew! if it sounds exhausting…it was exhausting~

And then Spring/Summer arrived…and dievca went into overdrive to refresh her closets. She bought 14 items and was thinking about the rest:

 

Is she going to keep it all? dievca is not sure – she has her receipts, but she got rid of 10 + items from her closet and is promising you all that she will remove 5 more, before she keeps anything.

Please note that she was holding on to Spring/Summer Clothes which were 7+ years old….a clear out and revamp was needed.

Did you need to do a clear out? Any suggestions of “keepers” for dievca?
Did you note there wasn’t much black? Those patent leather Puma shoes are navy….
(and if you want to know what she bought – just ask)


Strapless


strapless bra

A type of bra created and designed in various colors, cup sizes, materials, mechanisms and styles that does not include any shoulder strap (s) in the design.

Strapless bras are useful with clothing which doesn’t cover the shoulders.  They are tricky to wear.
Some suggestions for buying a strapless bra:

1. Play Around With Sizes

It’s a good rule of thumb to get measured when you’re buying a new bra, but your usual size could vary from your strapless size. “When buying a strapless bra, you should size down in the band and up in the cup,” Linda the Bra Lady suggest on her blog. “The reason for this is that the band is the only source of support, so it has to fit snug to keep the bra, and the girls, up.”

2. Make It Stick

To lower the risk of your strapless heading south, help your bra stick to your skin as much as possible. For example, keep your skin clean and don’t put beauty products like oils and creams on your chest. Try to look for styles that have sticky features like silicone or a rubber grippy band on the inside seam.

3. Try Before You Buy

When buying a strapless bra, the fit and size of your bra can vary hugely from brand to brand so get in the changing room for a trying on session.

4. Look For Well-Constructed Garments

Women who are well-endowed will get greater comfort from a strapless with a little extra band support. If you’re full busted, you need a strapless bra featuring a wider band, three hooks in the back, and extra support through the cups.

5. Consider The Longline

If a wide band doesn’t do the job, try a longline style. These styles will give you some reinforcement from below your chest. A longline bra has a bodice which will help support your bust, the band extends all the way to the waist for maximum lift.” (top photo)

6. Fill It In

Fit your bra to your largest breast and use a pad to fill in the other side, no one has equally sized breasts unless they had help.

7. Take Proper Care of it

When it comes to underwire or more sturdy bras, always hand wash, let them dry with the cups facing upwards and smooth out any dents to help maintain the bra’s original shape.


Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)
