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:

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.


Cheeky – its all in the definition.

  • Cheeky, a term used to denote that the garment exposes the bottom part of the buttocks.

    A more conservative style, the cheeky covers more area than a thong, but exposes the bottom part of the buttocks. Some cheekies are used as undergarments while others function as bikini bottoms. Often they have a band at the waist.


LBL (lingerie)

How many years has deivca been in NYC? and every Spring she sees the ads for the New York Liberty Women’s Basketball Team and she hasn’t made it to a game.  she will be trying again, this year, the home opener is May 25th.

Why does dievca bring this up? she ran into Women’s Basketball while writing the lingerie post for today….Did you know about the Lingerie Basketball League (LBL)?

dievca didn’t.

Starting in 2011 and touted as ‘where beauty meets the hardwood’ the LA Divas, Starlets, Glam and Beauties played head-to-head matches in the world’s most under-dressed league. The LBL held a second season in 2012, but there was no championship game. A championship game between the L.A. Divas and L.A. Glam was announced, but never held.

The LBL did not play in 2013 and is now inactive.

Guess the lingerie didn’t work as planned~


Looking forward!

What is a Camisole?

We spoke about tap pants (french knickers), two weeks ago — something that is often worn with taps pants is a Camisole.

Camisoles are tops with thin, adjustable spaghetti straps. A camisole is similar to a chemise, but shorter in length. It may be tight fitting or loose, but is more fitted than a “Babydoll”.  The length of a camisole can range from exposing the midriff to falling below the pelvic area.

The camisole evolved from a garment called a corset cover, and it retains a feminine look not seen in similar garments like tank tops.

A camisole is known as a cami for short.

Most camisoles are made from light fabrics such as nylon, satin, silk, cotton, spandex, or lycra. Many are trimmed in lace which helps enhance their aesthetic appeal and make them seem more modest when worn underneath low-cut blouses and dresses.

Traditional camisoles offer little support for the bust. Some women, especially those with large breasts, may prefer to wear a camisole over top of a brassiere. However, they can also be worn without this extra piece of lingerie. Camis developed in the late 1980’s had built-in underwire bras or other structures for added support. Camisoles which have shaping features for the bust, torso, or waist are known as “control” camisoles.

While originally designed as an undergarment, some women now choose to wear camisoles as part of their outfits. As a top with jeans, pants, shorts, a skirt – or under a suitcoat, etc.


Body Chains (lingerie)

The jewelry which could be considered lingerie.

Body Chains are a type of jewelry worn around the neck, chest and wrapped around the waist embellishing the assets like a piece of lingerie. They are often made of silver or gold and they highlight the breasts, cleavage and waist in a subtle way. The chains cause people to look closer.

The chains seem to be versions of the Kamarband/Udiyanam, which is a type of body jewelry worn around the waist, originating in India.

So, are they sexy or not worth the time?
