Bucking the Law: Nipple Pasties and Tassels (lingerie)

What are nipple pasties?
An ornate covering for the nipple.  Invented in the 1920s so that burlesque stars and cabaret shows could get away with having their show-girls virtually naked, without breaking any indecency laws. Burlesque performer Carrie Finnell is attributed with adding tassels that hang from the center of a pastie and she incorporated tassel twirling as part of her performances.

Heavily used in Burlesque Shows, ornate nipple pasties have had a bit of a resurgence with celebs wearing them out in public and on social media. Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj to name a couple. “Everyday” pasties have been helping people keep their nipples from peaking out of dresses and tops for more staid events.

Stylized
Get started by picking a nipple tassel or pastie that is comfortable and completely covers the nipple. They come in all different sizes and shapes – stars, hearts, circles, satin, leather…

The traditional Burlesque style is typically all-black nipple pasties, decorated with rhinestones, sequins, feathers, jewels to ribbons. Depending on your budget, you can get tassels from Etsy, Amazon, eBay, Agent Provocateur, make your own or buy a customized pair.

Attaching the decor
Your skin needs to be clean and dry, without any oils or moisturizer. The main concern with nipple tassels is keeping them on. Larger flat pasties will have more areas to stick to your skin, but they have more coverage. If you attach pasties with a good quality tape, you won’t have to worry. Some pasties already come with a disposable tape that will stick well. If you want to reuse your tassels, consider buying bondage tape – which sticks to itself or the Drag Queen choice of toupee tape.

Give them a twirl
dievca wore a pair of nipple tassels for Master and He knew enough to teach dievca how to twirl.  When she asked about His learning of the skill, Master mumbled something about occasionally hanging out in bars which had strippers wandering about~ The idea of Master hanging out in a seedy bar just made dievca laugh.

 


Surfs Up!….DAGNE DOVER backpacks (So 2014~Neoprene)

O’Neill Runway

2013 was the beginning of Neoprene appearing in fashion, used by designers such as Gareth Pugh, Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Lanvin and Vera Wang.

In 2014, it went mainstream.

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that’s often used to make wetsuits, hence its alternative name “scuba.” … The weight of neoprene also means form-fitting skirts and dresses are more forgiving.

It is stiff and very warm to wear. But the mainstream 2014 offerings were fun!

Spring Clothing designed this lovely neoprene coat in 2017 and there are neoprene outwear pieces still floating around the Athletic and Athleisure sector.
(Note: Zoom in to take a look at her awesome BDSM cuffs)

Neoprene was invented by DuPont scientists on April 17, 1930 after Dr Elmer K. Bolton of DuPont attended a lecture by FatherJulius Arthur Nieuwland, a professor of chemistry at the University of Notre Dame. Nieuwland’s research was focused on acetylene chemistry and during the course of his work he produced divinyl acetylene, a jelly that firms into an elastic compound similar to rubber when passed over sulfur dichloride. After DuPont purchased the patent rights from the university, Wallace Carothers of DuPont took over commercial development of Nieuwland’s discovery in collaboration with Nieuwland himself. Arnold Collins at DuPont focused on monovinyl acetylene and allowed it to react with hydrogen chloride gas, manufacturing chloroprene.

DuPont first marketed the compound in 1931 under the trade name DuPrene, but its commercial possibilities were limited by the original manufacturing process, which left the product with a foul odor. A new process was developed, which eliminated the odor-causing byproducts and halved production costs, and the company began selling the material to manufacturers of finished end-products. To prevent shoddy manufacturers from harming the product’s reputation, the trademark DuPrene was restricted to apply only to the material sold by DuPont. Since the company itself did not manufacture any DuPrene-containing end products, the trademark was dropped in 1937 and replaced with a generic name, neoprene, in an attempt “to signify that the material is an ingredient, not a finished consumer product”. DuPont then worked extensively to generate demand for its product, implementing a marketing strategy that included publishing its own technical journal, which extensively publicized neoprene’s uses as well as advertising other companies’ neoprene-based products. By 1939, sales of neoprene were generating profits over $300,000 for the company (equivalent to $5,403,589 in 2018). ~ Wikipedia

Neoprene has continued to be popular for lifestyle and home accessories including laptop sleeves, tablet holders, lunch bags, wine bottle holders, remote controls, typing wrist pads, mouse pads, etc.

Neoprene provides cushioning, insulation and is water-resistant. It is quite durable, as well.

And it’s being used as one of dievca’s favorite accessory designs – the backpack.

We had some excellent answers on dievca’s Tuesday blog post!

It’s a LabienspangenLabia Clasp.

Years ago, Master was traveling in Europe and dievca asked him to search out a shop in Berlin that sold 925 sterling silver Labia Clasps, along with other accoutrements and goodies.

He wandered around a desolate spot in Berlin and found a store/studio that looked abandoned.

Why did dievca ask Him to wander Berlin?

…this is probably one of Biank’s best inventions. He introduced his labia clasp made from 925 sterling silver for the first time in 1982. Even today, it still ensures that the wearer is starry-eyed with pleasure, from fitting onwards. It has often been copied by other providers. The fact remains that it takes years of experience and intuition to advise you to your optimal satisfaction. It is possible to have your labia clasp individually and anatomically adjusted in our Berlin studio to guarantee a perfect fit. This service is free of charge. The labia clasp is fitted over the small labia and creates a pleasant and stimulating feeling of tension when correctly fitted. After drawing back the clitoral foreskin, the clitoris is permanently exposed and is thus more receptive to stimulation. Clasps that are “too large”, “too wide” or “too small” can be returned and exchanged.

dievca figured that Master knows her labia intimately and could estimate her size.  If there was a problem, she was going to Berlin three months after Master and could get the clasp adjusted.

Ah, well – dievca’s idea didn’t quite work out, but he idea of her minora lady lips being held firmly open and a ball tapping on her clit as she walks around was/is amazing to dievca. In fact, she’s getting wet thinking about it …
Can the lovely Europeans who read this blog please find out about these accoutrements for dievca? Please? The deutsche website is linked to the photo above.

Ah, well. A less expensive and sort of interesting option is this:


The Pussy Clamps are surgical steel and open up the labia majora – not minora, which is something dievca does already with:

Master uses three mini-clothespins on each side of dievca’s labia majora to open her up for inspection and play with her vulva.

 

 


So, when all else fails…wear sequins?

dievca ran into this:

And it lifted her spirits on a very grey day.
For more fun, dievca decided to ogle what other “Sequin Swimsuit” options are out there~

dievca is not planning to invest in sequins any time soon…
How about you?

(Note: if you click on a swimsuit, you can see the brand)


full slip epic (lingerie)

Cindy Crawford vintage lingerie circa 1988 by Michael Goldman

A full slip hangs from the shoulders, usually with narrow straps, and extends from the breast to a fashionable skirt length. A half slip (or waist slip) just hangs from the waist. The word “petticoat” may also be used for half or full slips.
