I know you had problems last year. Did you find yourself a bikini or bathing suit for this summer? - Anonymous

I did actually, as of two of three weeks ago. Last year a new bikini was part of my annual “luxury” to myself. This year it was more of a necessity… but I found one. It’s not perfect, but I am reasonably happy with it. The colour is great. And it was on sale, so happy me.

Nice!

I have nothing to go on here other than the image itself, since a quick search does not come up with anything to suggest what she is wearing.

But the short review is that I like it. Well, I like the colour. A LOT. Now the bra has a handful of flourishes that it could probably do without (the big lace “wings” and medallion on the gore), but oddly it doesn’t bother me as much as I think it should. I like it. 

And if anyone knows anything about this particular set, please send it on to me.

(And I am always open to items to comment on… if you think I’d like it… or even not.)

Time for questions, comments and replies

I just realized I have neglected a handful of questions, comments and requests for commentary… so I will try to play some catch up.

And if you want to add anything to the pile, now is the time and I will try to reply/include it now. :)

It’s a summer Friday afternoon… and if there ever was a time for a glass of wine, this is it. (And, yes, for summer, I sometimes switch to rosé.)
So hoping you all are having a nice summer so far. Sorry for the light postings recently… but I am glad you all still follow. (And invite any/all of you to drop me a note and say hello!)
UPDATE: Talk about wishful thinking! I just realized… it’s NOT Friday. Meh. But the rest is still true. And it’s summer. A glass of wine for me anyway.

Words to get dressed by.

And while it’s a bit “cheesecake”, the use of the bold colours appeals to me on some level. Call it a guilty pleasure.

(Queen Moulded Cup plus size bra, $29 from Lingerie Diva. The warning sign, however, might be that the sizing is listed as “1X to 4X”. Whatever that means.)

And speaking of colours, wow. ($74, bra currently available 32-36, D to E.)

Love the new model for Cake Lingerie! Gorgeous set as well. 

Agreed, on both counts. I love this colour, and love that Cake Lingerie uses a range of models to show their wares.

(FYI, this is the Ginger Macaroon set. Bra is AUD $65 (C to GG) and the briefs are AUD $30.)

And thelingerieaddict has some potential solutions:

(Although if we are talking language as much as actual options, “nude” is a problem term… but I am not sure how happy I’d feel if my matching tone was labelled “mudslide”.)

All the companies who call that color nude… PLEASE STOP WITH THAT NONSENSE

I feel stupid for not being more sensitive to this in the past… but for every problem, there are solutions
