Your daily dose of pretty: Lulu Corselette

It's probably one of the inevitable signs of growing older, when a woman's underwear draw starts to contain less in the way of frilly barely-there frippery and more of the cover here-there-and-everywhere heavy duty armoury.

If I was being honest I would admit that it's also one of the inevitable signs of eating too many potato chips!

Luckily wearing underwear designed to smooth, cinch and flatten doesn't necessarily mean resorting to matronly styles any more, especially with the resurgence of interest in vintage lingerie styling (thank you Dita von Teese). I want to buy this corselette simply because it's gorgeous - what it would do for my figure is an added bonus:

Even The Eccentric English Boyfriend, who's not a huge fan of lace and suspenders, gave the thumbs up to this one. £65.00 from What Katie Did, a store that will be a definite must-visit on our trip to England next year.


  1. It's not that I'm not a fan of them, I just have so much trouble finding them in my size.

  2. It probably wouldn't fit me, but it's really cool!

  3. Parsley: I love you, and obviously that means I think you're sexy, but now I'm stuck with that image in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks.

    Sandra: It comes in my size - just!

  4. None of what I found locally came in my size... which sucks cause I love the idea.
    Now if only I knew this WOULD fit me, I'd order in a heart beat.

  5. A fun, fetish looking number. Only someone of her size would be comfortable in that. If you really needed that corset, ugh. How could I get it on by myself.

  6. Where do you find a woman like that!!
