A Little Bit of Femininity with Elize

A Little Bit of Femininity with Elize 0

The English word feminine is derived from the Latin femina meaning “woman” or “female,” and literally “she who suckles! I find this amusing that this female word links to the idea of breasts and feeding and feel that again all of woman hood seems to be associated with the idea of boobs.

Maybe breast do define us as in a physical sense as a woman but I think think femininity  is more than that. It includes, behaviours and attribute associated with being female that can actually be seen in all sexes and genders. That could include a love for colours, materials, make-up, heels, romantic comedies – you name the female stero-type and it comes under the umbrella of femininity.

I am ridiculously feminine. I don’t shy away from hard graft, but if I can do it in heels, with my make-up on, then I will! And if I need overalls and my Wellies on, then I want to feel feminine underneath.

This can be done with the most stunning set of lingerie called Elize.

It is made from a beautifully feminine lilac satin material and is edged in sexy black lace. The bra itself is slightly padded to give that little bit of extra support and smooth shape.

The feminine Elize

The straps are also lilac and edged with black and the knickers come in a brief, shorts or thong variety!

It feels pretty and girly and yet had a sultry feel to it.

I just love it and I know you lovely ladies will too.

Lingerie love – a legacy 0

I have had a fascination with lingerie since my teenage years.

At the age of 16 I worked in the lingerie section of  a retailers for Saturday job and I adored the different designs, shapes, cups and fits I suddenly discovered. I think my weekend wages were ploughed back into my new found passion but I was armed with new knowledge about well fitted bras, and far too much experience of older ladies and gravity….Later, for an A level art project I looked into the history of underwear, and the love of lingerie has stayed with me since those days.

I have always been well endowed since a young age – I was the girl in school with big boobs at getting my bra straps pinged by the boys and avoiding the swim days to keep my figure hidden. I loved to wear baggy clothes ( hey, it was the 90′s and I was an indie kid) but, sadly, spent a lot of time hiding my figure as I felt embarrassed at the attention my chest seemed to get.  At 18 I was  32DD with 26″ waist – how I would LOVE to have those stats these days – I am a 32 F and size 12 waist/hips, not an easy combination for dress sizes I can tell you.
