Feeling Basic ~ Lingerie (repost)

2022- What dievca is wearing for Master today.
Its snowing and will be the start of the Nor’easter,
so dievca needs something to go under the snowpants, again…
The difference is we are having soup and sandwich rather than crepes.

Marieyat

Conceived as an alternative to conventional women’s lingerie labels, MARIEYAT presents a range of androgynous undergarments that challenges the male gaze. Blending the traditionally decorative elements of lingerie with the uncompromising simplicity of unisex underwear, designer and Central Saint Martins alumnus Marie Yeung creates innovative undergarments that are at once comfortable and sensual. Bras, bodysuits, and tank tops crafted in soft rib knit jerseys feature seamless construction and natural textiles. Unexpected details such as deconstructed bindings, graphic cut-outs, and suspender straps embellish high-rise thongs and mid-rise briefs. Slinky silk jersey slips and cotton thigh-high socks round out the label’s offering of minimal base layers.

dievca sees this as a comfortable,
yet pleasant surprise for Master when he arrives

One for the $

Blue suede 8One for the money, two for the show is half of a rhyme used as a countdown to begin a task. The entire rhyme is: one for the money, two for the show, three to make ready and four to go. Children have used this little poem since the mid-1800s as a countdown to starting a race or competition. A famous variation of the rhyme is found in the 1955 popular song Blue Suede Shoes written by Carl Perkins: “Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go, cat, go.”

1930's Elegant Nightgown Pattern

since dievca has worn a sweeping Nightgown for her Master. This 1930’s Elegant Nightgown Vintage Pattern would be lovely to recreate.  Too bad dievca doesn’t have a sewing machine. She’ll just have to wear something vintge-like from her lingerie closet (Mary Green Silk Nightgown in Red):

female erogenous zones

sexy backBreaking down what partners might overlook.

One 2016 study found that the entire body had erogenous potential (happy news for Master and His dievca who love to touch). Note, there are frequent commonalities that are worth exploring.

One 2014 study found that the clitoris and the nipples are the most sensitive to both pressure and vibration (go figure). But, the areas found to be most sensitive to “light touch,” were the neck, forearm, and vaginal margin (the area just at the end of the vaginal opening and at the beginning of the perineum).

A study published in June 2020 used heat maps to show where men and women considered their erogenous zones, based on how aroused they became from appearance alone and then touch alone, as well as how the arousal changed whether they engaged in solo play or with a partner. Women consistently ranked the genital area, breasts, butt, and inner thighs high for touch, though the shoulders, hips, and the back of the neck were also shown consideration.

The study also examined what women consider to be men’s erogenous zones, and vice versa—and while most findings line up, it does show there are areas that might be missed for stimulation. Areas like the neck, inner thighs, and upper back, were ranked erogenous by women in the study, if slightly lower on the scale than the breasts, genitals, and butt.

According to a paper published in 2012, other areas include the mouth, ears, lower back, head and hair, and even—for some people behind the knee.

Maybe we should just take time with our partners and explore their whole bodies to determine their favorite erogenous zones – it won’t be time wasted~

Santa Lingerie – a discussion

Santa lingerie has permeated our culture.  You can probably picture the garments in question: cherry-red babydoll nightie with white fur trim lining the hem, paired with matching thong, or maybe a red satin and white fur teddy.

miss-santa-dress-string

How did lingerie evoking Santa, a wholesome and kindly childhood figure whose presence signals a religious virgin birth, get so popular?

Undergarments for women have long been costume-like, and were often meant to dramatically alter female silhouettes. (Whalebone corsets, giant hoops worn under crinoline skirts, a bustle.) Bloomers and petticoats might look dowdy and utilitarian, but eroticizing lingerie isn’t a new trend. Lingerie really started becoming more decorative and luxurious in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In1898, after noting a “mania” for colourful, decorative and seductive lingerie throughout Europe, the French journalist Octave Uzanne wrote, “the last remains of feminine modesty sunk out of sight.”

But underwear as a costume is a newer phenomenon. It might be linked with the provocative “underwear as outerwear” period of the 1980s and 90s. At the end of the 20th century, seeing visible underwear became more shocking than the nude body. An example is Madonna’s “Blonde Ambition” cone bra.

That’s the culture that led up to the “fast fashion” lingerie that was so popular in the early 2000s. And the inexpensive “Halloween Slutty” and “Santa Baby” costumes multiplied.

Santa may be a wholesome concept, but he is asking people to sit on his lap, he’s keeping a naughty and nice list, there are songs about Santa kissing women when he comes to visit, people are getting cozy with fur and sitting by a fire, and let’s not forget the unknown quantity of Ms. Santa Claus.   Perhaps people who buy Santa lingerie are buying into the commercialized, sexualized lens of those forces~

Finally something good – or so she thought

Agent Provocateur Peachy

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~

Good In Bed? Maybe, maybe not – washable silk with Lunya

Lunya Washable Silk Tee Set $198

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?

A little D/s with your Tea?

Roger Michell Lustre Pottery Teapot 1976

Roger Michell (1947–2018) was a British studio potter, artist, book illustrator, writer, and poet.
Michell designed various items of Carltonware – He was most known for designing Walking Ware, a tea set on legs with oversized Mary Jane shoes – in the 70s & 80s, then set up his own Studio line of lustreware. Thousands of these tea sets were sold, either hand made from Lustre Pottery studio or manufactured by Carltonware in Stoke-on-Trent.


Bondage through another’s eyes – 3 pieces of Man Ray

Man-Ray-Woman-in-Mask-and-Handcuffs-1928

Artist and photographer, Man Ray, made several sadomasochistic photos in his career in the 1920s and 1930s. He was a devotee to the works of the Marquis de Sade, and created portraits of the Marquis. Man Ray was one of many artists seeking truth through extreme mental and physical states.

Man Ray’s 1930 Gloved Figure exemplifies the relationship between sadomasochism and mysticism. The photograph features a figure clad in  suede elbow-length gloves, and a matching suede mask. The mask and gloves have been carefully constructed out of the same light-coloured suede material and appear to fit snugly over the model’s face and hands, suggesting that they were made specifically for this shoot based on the model’s exact measurements. The model’s hands are pulled above their head and are attached to a metal chain hanging from the ceiling with a pair of handcuffs. The model is clearly in the masochistic position, their sense of sight and hearing deprived by the mask and their ability to move severely, if not completely, hindered by the handcuffs and chain, which leaves them seemingly suspended from the ceiling.

Man-Ray-Woman-in-Bondage-c1930

Man Ray made a strong connection between artistic prowess and masculine prowess, specifically power over women; the bohemian machismo.

Created in 1930, the Fetishistic Mise-en-scène for William Seabrook series was considered so perverse it was only widely released to the public in 1994.  As the title suggests, the series was created by Man Ray at the request of Seabrook.  They worked together to  bring Seabrook’s fantasies to life, male voyeurism and the fetishization of lesbianism for male pleasure.

Man Ray doesn’t seem entirely comfortable with Seabrook’s world,  hence the less intimate cropping. He seems to prefer his sadism to be spontaneous outbursts of passion, not the meticulously planned, “perverse” scenarios of Seabrook.

A "Thank You" to Man Ray, Audrey Warne. Peter Tupper


Right on the Kisser

In 1977, Fitz & Floyd had a ceramics designer with the sense of humor. Many pieces from 1974 thru 1978 are “quirky and fun” – not “cheesy” or “sweet”.  One of the classic offerings is an homage to Marilyn Monroe called “Lip Service”:

Sometimes its works – tanga panties

Backside and cuffs
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**.


Going Bananas 🍌 It started with Josephine

Josephine Baker Glamour

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.”

“World-renowned music hall artist, committed to the Resistance, tireless anti-racist activist, she was involved in all the fights that bring together citizens of good will, in France and around the world,” the palace wrote.
She will be honored at the monument on November 30.

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.

Banana SkirtAt 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!

Tattoo You – Aubade Paris

ta_box_1

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.
