Welcome to my second May the Month of Lingerie post! Any of you who follow me on most of the other social medias will probably see my daily posts of these, but it’s nice to just lump them all together in a blog post
The lingerie is the Pleasure State White Label ‘Ella Mae’ set, and I am also wearing my Hopeless Lingerie ‘Maja’ harness on top. If you haven’t checked out Hopeless before then I suggest you do so, and then cry at all of the beautiful pieces. The lingerie is so lovely in real life as it has sparkling lace with a super comfy Jacquard fabric which you can’t really see in the photo.
This harness is very special to me, I had been admiring it for a long while but then I rediscovered it while I was reading the book ‘Harbour’ by John Avide Lindqvist. It has a main character in it called Maja so I knew then that I had to have it. I highly recommend anyone to read that book as it is so good, and he is also my favourite author.
Elle Macpherson Gold Oasis bra with Kayser briefs.
Really basic but comfy today. I picked up this bra in a Kirk’s sale at the end of last year and it is such a great everyday bra. I love wearing this bra with scoop neck tops as the lace peeks out at the sides which is super cute!
I really like today’s picture. I am wearing the Pleasure State Couture Transcendent set with Levante Velatissima Nylon Stay Ups. I really like how orange looks on my skin, some of this season’s Simone Perele is in a gorgeous orange I may have to get a hold of. Also these stay ups are the greatest stay ups in all the land. They are actual nylon to they are super light and slinky smooth. The only problem is the size I like to wear is the X-Tall which is ridiculous as I am pretty average sized.
More homemade underwear today, with no bra! This is a pair of super high-waisted underwear which I made a couple of years ago now. They are made from a sheer white mesh with snowflake patterned elastic and are really soft.
This is the Pleasure State White Label ‘Layla Belle’ set. These underwear are so comfy and the lace on the underwear is so lightweight and soft. This colour-way is super striking and I bought it the day I first saw it. Unfortunately though the findings on the straps keep turning on their side (they are meant to be horizontal) which can be a little uncomfortable.
Lazy lace again today – Elle Macpherson Gold Oasis bra with a Simone Perele thong/brief. I wish I knew the name of this brief so I could get a matching set. Both of these were actually clearance pieces which I bought at the same time, so that kind of makes them like an adopted set right?
The end of my second week! This is the Ultimate Pinup Girl lingerie set by My Retro Closet. Unfortunately these aren’t being sold anymore, but there are a couple of stray sizes left on their Instagram account if you’re interested. I really love this set, the unpadded bra is super comfy and the highwaisted briefs are just snug enough to provide a little shaping. I really want to get their ‘Joan’ babydoll at some point.
Also worth mentioning I needed to return my bra and Abi (the woman behind My Retro Closet) was amazingly kind and the whole process was super easy. I also emailed about sizing for the briefs and got super fast and helpful feedback!
I like that I am far too lazy to take OOTD posts but am pretty much on track with taking photos of my lingerie. I have a bunch of other posts waiting to be written so I may have 1 or 2 over the next week before my next lingerie post.
