Bustiers – New Arrivals

What can be both a top and lingerie? Bustiers! It’s interesting how simply attaching or detaching garter belt straps can make such a difference.

You may wonder, how would it fit and why do we have lacing at the back and hooks in the front? Well, the first time a woman wears it such bustier is when she’ll get a friend to adjust the lacing at the back to fit her figure. All the times after that she just needs to clip it up in the front and it fits perfectly.

These are just a few styles of such bustiers that are now in stock. Green, Pink, Red. If you need another size, let me know. These come with a matching thong, but I didn’t put it on the mannequin because otherwise I’d have to detach it from the corset’s tag.

Soon I’ll be an expert in product photography, but for now excuse my learning curve 🙂

Do you notice that I am attaching this garter belt to stay up stockings? This was actually the only style that has these holes in the top that is so easy to attach the clip to. Otherwise I’d never consider attaching a garter belt to stay ups. These straps, by the way, detach.

If you like it, see it here – Floral Bustier.

Cher in a super hot cleavage corset

Being quite a trend setter, one of the corsets that she wore actually even got other companies like Shirley of Hollywood to create similar Cher inspired designs.

On the photo here she is wearing a strappy corset to the Golden Globes red carpet event.

You can find this style in the shop section. It’s something that I think would look amazing both as a top and as a piece of lingerie.

Cuban heel stockings on a Friday night

Edvige cuban heel stockings with backseam by Fiore 2 Edvige cuban heel stockings with backseam by Fiore

My guy took these candid photos on our Friday night date night. We went to the movie theatre to watch Captain America.

I decided to finally celebrate the warm weather and wore a dark knee high dress. Under it I had a corset with garter straps attached to these Cuban heel stockings.

One thing that I can tell you is that this one piece lingerie looked amazing, but it wasn’t easy to move, sit down, or lean in any way. It felt like I had a bungee chord running from my shoulder to my ankles.

As I was waiting at the movie theatre for my guy to finally emerge from the men’s room, the handle from my umbrella fell off and ended up on the floor. I picked it up, but right away dropped something else. A guy next to me rushed to helped me to get it first, saying that “don’t worry, I’ll get it, you look like you have trouble doing that”. Well, I blamed it on my high heels. That was an awkward moment.

So just a note for those like me, if you are planning to move around and so on it’s better to wear a garter belt and a bra as two separate garments rather than a piece that combines it all.

In case you would like to get a pair of stockings like that, this is a limited edition style by Fiore called Edvige. You can find it in the shop section here.

Feel free to use this screensaver of Anne Hathaway digital drawing in stockings and garter belt.  It is supposed to be from the theme of Alice in Wonderland.

I remember though that in the movie of Alice in Wonderland she gets reprimanded for not wearing stockings to the gathering at which she walks off and finds the rabbit hole.
