Aupa Readers! How are you this fine Friday? Ready for some weekend fun? I know I am, but let's see if the weather will agree. I finally got around to resnapping some of those panty pics I mentioned previously. Pictured today is the first fruits of that labor.
What you are seeing is a garter panty from VS. I absolutely love the way these look, but the material is slightly hard or stiff and not quite as smooth as I'd expected. It's not coarse in any way, just not as satiny and smooth as I thought it would be. Also, the animal print is very cute but is of a lower quality than I've become accustomed to from VS. It's hard to describe, but I think when you find a really good print, it's often hard to distinguish that the pattern is a print at all when viewed up close. With this it seems kind of obvious, although this may have been intentional, I don't know. It's not bad at all, just not what I was expecting given some of the other animal print things I own from VS. Come to think of it, it may actually be the pattern itself that causes this effect, I don't know, it's still cute, just could have been executed slightly better.
On to build quality next, which to my eye and hand seems very good. The panties are cut very low on the waist, can you say LOW rider? Depending on your backside this may give a spectacular view to your audience. The garter straps are well constructed having nice metal clips and are removable, a feature I like when executed correctly as they are here. Sometimes removable garter straps have loops that are too loose and the straps can come off unintentionally, but in this case they hang on nice and tight.
Lastly, let's focus on some of those lovely details I've come to look forward to from VS. I like the lacy sections which are very soft, the floral edging around the waist and leg opening and the ruched back panel. Next, we have the cute little bejeweled waistband bow. I really like that as it just makes the whole thing pop, it's just an extra little something that makes these even cuter. And on top of that they even put a cluster of stick on amber colored rhinestones spelling out VS on the front left lower hip area, SO cute.
I bought these babies on sale so there's a good chance you won't find them if you go looking, sorry. The panties themselves seem to run a bit small in sizing, so keep that in mind if and when you buy yours. I do recommend them if you happen to find them, I doubt you'll be disappointed!
