Lingerie and Walt Disney!
Yes you heard me correctly...Disney! I have two reasons for this post.
I attended a costume party last weekend which gave the rather hard theme of WHATEVER fancy dress you wanted! So seriously, what do you wear to one of those? Should I go as Catwoman? A sexy Pirate? A burlesque dancer? There were too many options! After going through idea after idea, I settled on the one thing that suited me most right then, Snow White. I had recently cut my dark hair shorter and had the pale white skin after being ill for a few weeks, so all I needed was to pop on some bright red lipstick, find a cheap ebay costume and I was done!
I went online and purchased a Sexy snow white costume for $40 including postage and awaited it's arrival... I tried it on and was shocked that the sizing ran ridiculously small for this set and I had no time left to exchange it! Measurements on the site told me I may not even fit into the Small size, but my god, I definitely needed a medium. Crap... What do you do with a corset that doesn't even do up?? I had to make do. So off I went to Lincraft and purchased 3 bra extenders and luckily for me, it worked! I had an outfit! The costume fortunately had a cape that could cover the dodgy fix up job in the back.
Disney story number TWO,
I went back to the Bendon outlet when I received word that they were having yet another sale. All bras $20 all bottoms $10. A lot of stock goes off the shelves for these two week but sometimes you find absolute gold. This time for me was a mixed reaction. Yes they had included Pleasure State Couture in the sale, however I either had them already or they were kind of f*ugly... However this has never stopped me before! I dove into the racks and picked out two outfits that I certainly didn't love but knew I would wear... at some point... even if only once!
One of these outfits I call my Minnie Mouse set. It has a red fabric base with rather large white polka dots scattered on the fabric. The bra is cut like a quarter cup, where it sits under the nipple line, but then the underlay had a lovely soft black leavers lace to cover up whats exposed. It features ribbon tie sides on the bra and the knickers. As I tried to tell my friend, when she exclaimed "Eww....!" to the set, that I had nothing like it. She asked if that was necessarily a reason to buy it... And yes of course it is! You never know when you want a Disneyesque lingerie set to wear! I mean seriously!
I wore it the next day and was pleasantly surprised that the set looked a lot better on than off . It was extremely comfortable though ran a little big in it's back sizing and was already doing it up on the tightest hook. The look was cute yet sexy without it being super girlie. I changed my opinion and decided I actually like this set now as opposed to my "I will wear it one day" mind set. What do you think? They still have quite a few pieces left in this collection if anyone is interested, head to your nearest Bendon Outlet.
