 Happy Sunday Our topic today is GARTER BELTS AND STOCKINGS

Seven 'til Midnight Floral Lace Crotchless Garter Tanga
Available from SEVEN ‘TIL MIDNIGHT

Are you still wearing them or do they belong to the past? Maybe they do but for special occasions they still have a purpose.

Before pantyhose were introduced, every woman wore either a girdle with garter straps or a garter belt. Today garter belts are reserved for a sensual look. If you discarded yours when pantyhose came in, it will be a pleasant change to buy a new one for a different, more sexy, image.

For a very slim figure the narrow type, which is essentially an elastic band around the waist with four garter straps, is the best.

For a more voluptuous figure choose the type made like a little skirt, extending halfway down over the stomach.

There are also panties with garter straps attached, which are good for all figures, but especially for a bigger-size woman. It will give the garter effect, without exposing too much.

To complete the seductive look of a garter belt, wear stockings of the same colour. If, however, black or red stockings are not appropriate with your dress, try stockings with seams up the back or with designs—like a few black squares or dots. Even net stockings can be fun with the right dress and certainly make for a sexy image.

The purpose of stockings with seams or designs is to draw attention to your legs. A sexy leg is always a welcome and intriguing sight, even for the most conservative men

You might wonder whether pantyhose are sexy. I did quite a bit of research, asking different men . how they felt about pantyhose, and their answers were all negative. In fact, more than one of them said, ‘Pantyhose are the worst thing ever invented.’ When I asked why, the reason men gave was that pantyhose wrap a woman up, making her look unavailable, and untouchable—they don’t extend an invitation. When you think about it for a moment, you’ll see the truth of this impression. So if you want to seduce someone, stockings and a garter belt will be more helpful.

These, of course, should always be worn with high-heeled shoes even when you’re not wearing a dress!!!

*******

If you wonder who still wears Garter Belts and Stockings –  go on line – you will be surprised at the choice and variety – it certainly tells us that there are still many women who wear them.

And Never Forget – A Smile Changes Everything! – (with or without a Garter Belt).

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 30 – WEARING HIGH-HEELED SHOES

TIP NO. 30WEARING HIGH HEELED- SHOES

As we have heard yesterday ‘high heels’  are very becoming and seductive. But if you have not worn any for a long time – how do you start?

Buy a pair with a small heel.  Maybe 2″ high, and start wearing them around the house. It will give your feet a chance to get used to them – remember only practice makes perfect – and with  time you can wear them when you go out – and with more time – you might work yourself up to this

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 29 – CAN SHOES HELP YOU CATCH A MAN?

TIP NO. 29 CAN SHOES HELP YOU CATCH A MAN?

Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Not that Marilyn needed the right shoes, even without shoes she could have conquered the world!

But it is true that the most effective way to look feminine and sexy is to wear high-heeled shoes. (Alas, if only someone could combine comfort with spike heels). From my survey, which was published in my book What Turns Men On – 80% said that they preferred and like women who wear high heels. Here is one comment: “High heels make legs appear longer and curvier. They also add height and give a woman’s silhouette a slimmer look. No man ever misses a pair of legs with high-heeled shoes. The style of the shoes doesn’t matter, it’s the heel that counts.

Another said: “I am extremely turned off by women who wear only flat shoes, because I feel that a high-heeled shoe is the trademark of a vibrant, sexy woman.”

Do you have any high-heeled shoes in your closet? If you can’t wear spike heels, maybe you could try a pair like these, with a medium heel?
