Monday Panty Review
Buokaye Readers! How was your weekend? Did you get nice and relaxed? I thought a panty review would be a great way to kick off the week!
Featured above is yet another of my newer VS panties. These lovelies come from the Intimissimi line. The material used on these is very nice; smooth and soft with a beautiful shimmer to it. The feeling against the flesh is exquisite. The cut is semi low rise, yet full in back, almost a tap or boy short in style. I've put on a few pounds recently, but they still seem just a tad snug for their size in my opinion.
A seam runs up the center of the back panel, very nice design element which accentuates that area well. Matching colored lace runs from the outer hips down around the leg openings. Where the lace meets the waistband at either side, the two sides join as it follows the edges of the front and back panels forming a little lace flap overlap at either hip and giving them a more sheer and light appearance.
The waistband is gathered and has a nice rippled pattern to it and is pinch sewn at it's base in such a way as it creates a very cute crease and distinct separation between waistband and body sections. Lastly, there is the signature VS bow at the front of the waistband accented nicely with a tiny sparkly crystal making the whole piece so irresistibly feminine and cute. To my eye they have a Victorian or old fashioned look to them that I find pleasing. I apologize for the wrinkliness of the panties in the pics, but I basically just pulled these out of my drawer and took pics of them, no time for ironing.
One last thing to note is that coming from the Intimissimi line of lingerie, they have the long info tags inside which stick out during wear if one is not careful. Most likely they're meant to be trimmed or removed all together, but I like to keep the tags on mine, so it can be a problem when walking about in public. I have a few panties from this line and they all seem to share that trait with each other. Not a big deal, but I thought it worth mentioning. Oh, and also of note, the crystal can occasionally get caught up on the inside of your pants if there is anything there to grab. This happened to me a couple of times when it got entangled with a loose string on the waistband of my cotton pants. Not the panty's fault at all mind you, but again something I thought you might want to know.
All in all, I really love these panties from both design and comfort aspects. As far as I know they should still be in stores near you, although they have been around a little while, so you might want to get down there fast if you want them.
