Bordelle underwear - in love but not rich! Where do you buy your nice underwear from?
I have absolutely fallen in love with their entire range, but sadly I don't have millions in the bank. I have spent some time online looking to see if I can find similar but have had no luck so far. my underwear buying is very limited and tends to be plain black padded bras and black thongs (Primani up but nothing too expensive at all)
It's time to make more effort and a meal we have planned on Friday night is the perfect place to start. The dress I'm planning to wear is my husbands favourite but it has to have a certain stick on bra cup thing instead of a normal bra so I'm concentrating on the stockings, garters, belt and thong/briefs. I am a (seamed) stocking wearer if the belt sits well under my clothes and aim for a 6 set of fastenings in metal, normally from Stockings HQ but nothing is grabbing me. If I found a slip similar to the strappy ones I think I would change the dress I was wearing to allow for it ;)
Ohh, I hadn't looked at sizes, my bank account got in the way before I got that far ;)
AP has some gorgeous stuff, including a lovely set that I wanted from the sale at Christmas, but they took it all down and have now put it back. Unfortunately they are just tipping the scale of being too expensive now (Unless a client we are waiting on puts their remittance in today )
VS seem to only have their stuff online in America, sadly their nearest store is over an hour away so I'm going to have to rule them out! Although it would be fab to get measured properly.
Manalive, some really lovely bits on there. Not quite right for Friday but I've saved to my favourites for future browsing.
This is a whole new world! How much does everyone normally spend on lingerie and are you wearing really nice stuff all the time? I'm really quite polished and cant leave the house in mismatch but have never really looked at what's out there.
I cant afford a brothel either. I won't enquire about cheaper versions of those..
I have some gorgeous corsets but have had major surgery on my stomach so I'm not allowed to wear them any more I think that may be the sudden interest in lingerie, I have some serious scarring that doesn't bother me but could be dressed up ;)
Myla on the list. La Perla have gorgeous bits but too pricey. I'm going to need to remortgage to buy all the things I've fallen in love with today ;)
Hey, might i suggest you take a look at the gorgeous bits at www.violetsknickers.com Boredelle is gorgeous but pricy as you say. Take a look at Ludique or Sonata. There are also some really excellent items in the sale! Violet
