Yesterday I really did mean to branch out but I somehow found myself stuck in the Bourke White sim for most the the time I was online yesterday. Great stuff. Today I am going out on a limb and blogging lingerie. Now, there is a whole lot of underwear in SL. And a lot of it looks better on SL bodies than it would on the RL versions thereof. I fully admit to being a much more conservative dressing av than most, and there are a couple of reasons why:
1. I like fabrics. Not that av skin is not nice to look at, but my heart gets all aflutter when looking at fabric texture, shape, and draping. Lingerie usually doesn’t have enough fabric to make me get fluttery.
2. I like subtlety. Vintage underwear has such charm for me, with it’s laces and ruffles and bows and the time it takes to put on and take off…it radiates femininity and understated sexiness. Also there is nothing like that soft, worn fabric against your skin. Now, I am certainly not opposed to letting it all hang out, and there is definitely a time and place for it, but in my opinion the anticipation and imagination about our bodies is also an important part of understanding ourselves and connecting with others.
That being said, you can probably imagine my cry of delight when I saw this ensemble by NovaStar Shilova:
Aside from fitting perfectly the first time I put them on, the sheen and texture quality are astounding and the prim attachments work flawlessly with the several different outfit options.
It gives a whole new meaning to laying around in your underwear! As I said before, there is a lot more than just underwear included with this outfit, so if you want to bare a little less you can.
I must also mention the Willow skin from Kira Paderborn. I actually got this one from the Gacha Café on the Bourke White sim and became an instant fan.
Now to see if I can make it to a different sim today!
