Is it wrong that the masochist in me wants to try the last one?
Masochist? I'd do them all!
As one knows, there is no gain without some pain...or something such!
Having gone to Renaissance faires I've already done something akin to #2. (Actually, I saw a place in a mall once that custom makes shapewear. If I could ever afford it I should do that. Because today's stuff is just not designed well for bathroom emergencies!) #1 - my hair is too damaged from my last perm. I don't think I'll risk it.But #3 really appeals to the masochist in me, seriously.
I love the look on that man's face.
Oh hey, since this is about beauty, maybe you could help me.Over at Awful Library Books they posted this old beauty book including a scan of a page on undies. The VERY LAST pair of panties I'm in love with. I think they're such a pretty cut and design. Since you, and the majority of the readers of this blog, are better versed in vintage beauty then me, I was wondering if they have a special name and if anyone knows if anyone offers any for sale anymore. (Plus size.) I'd love to be wearing a pair of those under a dress. And normally I'm not a pretty panty person. I'm a white cotton granny panties. But I lust after those panties.Panty lust.Good lord I need some sleep. I'm rambling about panty lust and not even thinking of using backspace. Which I really should.
They are called "tap pants." Probably because they were used in those old movies for tap numbers, but you can find them in higher end lingerie stores and catalogs - before Victoria's Secret turned into Frederick's of Hollywood, they did offer satin tap pants at one time. Try searching for them. Let me know!
Jami - there's even a wikipedia entry! God bless the geeks.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tap_pants
