Today I decided to wear that white dress that I didn’t get to wear in my challenge. It’s very clingy and shows off my curves…….or lack thereof when it comes to my hips. And of course being a white dress my blue knickers are showing through! Noob! You think I would have learned from the photo shoot the other week!
It would also have been better if I had a nude bra. But at least I have a white bra on. It’s a lacey dress with a lining that starts just above my breasts. So you can see my shoulders through the lace. It has a v-neckline and my pink and blue butterfly necklace nestles perfectly in the V.
It clings to me and shows off the outline of my breasts nicely. I think it would look even better if I put my hip pads in to give me some curves down there. It falls to just below the knee, and requires two pairs of knickers, as I really need the flat look.
My floral, pink and blue stiletto sandals complete my outfit. And I think I look quite good if I do say so myself. Although it is a little strange to feel the clinginess of the dress around my hips and thighs. Not my usual look that’s for sure. But I feel good.
So what’s the problem? I look good, I feel good. But………this dress is slippery! What? Well it has a lining, and it really clings to me, and my bottom. I work in an office and spend a good part of the day sitting down in front of a computer. So between the chair and my bum are two clingy layers. The lining which is very slippery. And the lace which grips tightly to the chair as I sit on it. As a result my bum keeps sliding slowly forward and I end up in a very un-ladylike position!
I can’t keep sliding and readjusting all day. So I’ve found two possible solutions. Either hitch up my dress and sit on my knickers. Or hitch up the lining and sit on the lace. Both solutions leave me exposed if I stand up. But sitting on my knickers means I can pull my dress down when I stand up for complete coverage. Sitting on lace means that I need to pull my dress up then down for full coverage. Or I can leave it as is for a look that is borderline SFW. What to do? What to do?
Fortunately there is an option number three! Hitch up lace and sit on the lining! This actually works and I didn’t think of it at first because I thought that the lining was the slippery part. Thank goodness it worked because out of the other two options sitting on my knickers was the better option!
I guess this dress is more for standing around looking pretty rather than being practical. Hence the issues that I am facing. But that’s part and parcel of being a girl. And I’m revelling in it!
