I know most people don't think too highly of Frederick's, but I thought this was interesting: Vintage Glitz Bra & Thong sold separately. fredericks.com/Vintage_Glitz_Bra/92624,default,pd.html?cgid=li3 Image source: fredericks.com

^ One hopes the wearer is planning to wear it only very briefly ... looks scratchy :p

The gripe I have with lots of lingerie like Elle MacPherson is it seems to be so completely non-functional for wearing under clothes. Reams have been written on the joys of wearing sexy lingerie under your suit or whatever ... but with all those ruffles and frills and lace, how do people do it?? I need someone to write a small ream on this. It seems that all really functional lingerie is quite plain. Someone should solve this problem and then stand there catching the $$$$$$$$

Any reviews on Sonya Rykiel for H&M?

A big fat trench coat to cover everything up... I'm not quite sure how it works during the summertime though.

^^ this is why i'm a big fan of the unpadded, unfrilled lace bra/panty sets -- sexy and all, but don't show under shirts etc. no idea how one is supposed to wear anything padded and frilly and beribboned unless you're a stripper or a playboy bunny or something where your career, erm, requires such things.

however, ruffly garter belts and thigh highs work surprisingly easily under a knee length wool skirt, and sometimes under a heavier or button down shirt you can get away with some bra frills i guess. but still.

Only just realised I didn't post all of my post,doh! So further to the above ^ I had in my possession the bras and briefs some weeks back,but it was only the other day that she sent me the 'waspies'. Has anyone ever worn one of these before? I'm a little unsure as to what situation/outfit it is appropriate for?!

i love a waspie...
though i don't think it is intended for everyday use..
that is pretty much a sex thing...
you only wear it if someone is going to see you naked!..

Softgrey-I'm trying to find any excuse to wear it at any time,I'm in love If this one wasn't see through at the back,I'd try and get away with wearing it as a skirt. It's only when my flatmate reminds me of what common decency is that stops me

I've also gone and purchased my first corset. Nothing too fancy,just something to get me used to wearing one. I don't think I've any ambition of tightlacing but I really like how wearing it affects my posture

I know that companies like VS and Calvin Klein have tried making "invisible lace" that doesn't show through, but in the end, it just looks like a regular padded bra with a lace print! No one has quite discovered the solution yet.

I should think that a simple silk cami might remedy the problem, but personally, I don't understand the taboo with lingerie hinted underneath clothes. I just don't get the obsession with everything looking "smooth" because people just aren't smooth to begin with! I say if you want to wear a lacy shirt under a stiff button-down, go for it! :p
