Me and lingerie

I own two beautiful steel boned corsets, a couple of black lacy bras and some lace panties that I’ve had forever.

And that’s it for beautiful lingerie-type things.

I used to love lingerie way back when, but at some point I lost interest. Not because I don’t think it’s pretty and sexy, but because somehow it just became… impractical and too expensive and hard to justify.

Which it is, really.

But still, it sounds (even to me) like a terrible shame.

Most beautiful lingerie is expensive and impossible under the type of clothes I typically wear. My strappy summer dresses, sarongs, tank tops, light floaty things demand invisible panty lines and cross-over bras that can be hidden under thin straps. So I can’t actually wear the beautiful things unless I’m specifically putting it on just for the sake of it, for effect, either for myself or for someone else. And while that can be really fun and awesome, I can come up with a lot more practical things to spend that kind of money on.

If I can put it on under something I’m actually wearing for it to be revealed sometime later, that absolutely works for me. But it really does mean that I can only do that in winter, when the secret pretty things can be worn under the full coverage of warm layers.

Nevertheless, the other day I went and tried on pretty bras: black (always black), all intricate lace and barely-there delicacy. So tempting, but oh so impractical.

The one pictured above was one of my favourites. I didn’t buy it for all of the reasons I’ve just talked about.

Perhaps I just need a lingerie slave so that expense and impracticality become irrelevant in the face of such gifts. Is there such a thing? Of course there is. Apply within.

  1. Oh dear, you are not turning into one of those “Amazon dommes” I hope!
    Beware, this is the start of a slippery slope that could end in you offering your used lingerie for sale!

  2. Dear Miss Ferns,

    I hope I am not overstepping my bounds, and if I am, I hope You will please forgive me.

    Please allow me to start by saying that I am a submissive man, as You might have suspected, but I am not “applying within”. I have followed Your blog for quite some time, and while I do not read every post every time, I have enjoyed it. Primarily because You remind me very much of a Domme Lady that I knew for a good number of years who is no longer with us.

    Like one of Your other posters, I hope You are not turning into one of those “Amazon Dommes”, but because You remind me so much of Her, I am fairly certain that will never happen. She would never have said to me, “You must buy me ……….. or you will no longer be in my favor.” But, She would, occasionally, allow me, and She would love it when I did, to find something for Her. Of course, this was several years ago and before the use of gift cards was even beginning. Which meant that there were certain amounts of trust between us which are not usually necessary nowadays.

    Anyway, I know I’m probably boring You to tears and I apologize for that. What I am trying to get at is that perhaps, if it would please You, there would be a way for me to purchase a gift card in Your name for You to get Your new bra.

    This would be a way for me to honor You, because I have enjoyed Your work, but it would also be a way for me to do something that I know would have pleased Her. One of the things that She told me in those days, was that a Lady should never be without her Pretty Things just because of practicality.

    Thank You for reading all this, and again, I apologize for being so long winded.

    Have a wonderful weekend, and a spectacular week,

    1. *smile* What a sweetheart you are, Ken. Thank you so much for the kind words and I am beyond flattered that I remind you of someone you obviously held in high regard. I’m sorry that you lost her.

      Thank you also for your very gracious offer. I like your Domme-friend’s approach, and agree with her (of course!).

      Please check your email.


  3. Holy moly. And it’s not even your birthday!!! We readers must have made you happy. Crass to say best post of the year? Crass it is!

    1. *smile* Actually what made me happy was that beautiful lingerie AND managing to get a good shot of it in the dressing room.

      Readers are just incidental beneficiaries of same.

      And thank you, I shall take your version of crass any day.


  4. Beautiful lingerie is beautiful to wear, beautiful to see, and oh-so uplifting. It is a crime that it is as expensive as it is, but what delights it holds. I have been musing on it lately, as it is impractical and a luxury that is out of reach for most of us…and yet, it says “wrapping paper” to me. A way of saying that the body that it holds and the body that it hides and reveals is a gift, a very special one, one that is made all the more so by the beauty of the wrapper. I’m a sucker for lingerie because of how it makes me feel…the way it feels on the skin, how it pinches and holds, what it feels like under clothes, that it feels like a whisper, a secret, something to be shared with so few…
