“I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin.” ~ Coco Chanel
I have a lot of lace in my wardrobe. Some elbow length gloves, at least two tops, lots and lots of pairs of stockings and hold ups that have lace trim, a few bras and of course a selection of knickers in a variety of different colours.
Colour counts when it comes to lace.
White lace: I have a couple of white lace bras. I think they are sexy because of the juxtaposition position between the implied innocence of white lace and the what they are containing or even framing in some cases. You can clearly see my nipples through the fabric. Somehow if the lace was red or black whilst it would still be sexy the implications would be very different.
Red Lace: There is nothing innocent or demur about red lace. No one looks at red laced undies and thinks of virginal brides or simple innocence. Red lace is a fucking statement, whether that is a flash of red lace on your stocking stops or a full lingerie set, it is bold, confident and sexy as hell!
Black lace: Definitely doesn’t fall into the virginal innocence, it is more like red in that sense that it oozes a level of confidence but it also has an air of sophistication to it. A bit like a little black dress, black matching undies is a classic that never goes out of fashion.
Of course there are other colours too, I have some pink knickers, a dark burgundy red and a bright royal blue. Some of them have a bit of trim and some of them are mostly lace. The pink feels more playful, whereas the dark burgundy red definitely feels sultry and provocative and the blue, well that seems to flit between the two.
Lace definitely appeals to the femme part of me. It makes me feel sexy and womanly. Not all lacy underwear is comfortable though. I have had my fair share of itchy annoying lace things but when it fits well and feels good it really is a wonderful fabric and when it comes to underwear that fits well it just makes me feel good when I put it on
It helps too that when I wear it The Charmer tend to make appreciative noises. Between you me he is man who has a bit of thing for lingerie and my collection has definitely expanded as a result of having him in my life. There is something very special about opening up a package to find it contains gorgeous lacy underwear sent to you by a lover. Of course when it comes with a note that says I will need more to replace the ones he intends to cut off me that makes them even more exciting.
The other day someone sent me a link to a place where they said there was good but reasonably priced undies and I have to admit I do very nearly bought myself something lacy and beautiful. In the end I managed to resist the urge because I really couldn’t justify them to myself right now but I did bookmark the site. I might not need them at the moment but when this is over I am definitely going to treat myself to something lacy and glorious. The only thing I have to work out is what colour it will be.
