Ever since I’ve lived in Spain, Interviu magazine has always fascinated me. Initially, I was confused about what type of magazine it was. After all, it always had a beautiful topless woman on the cover, so it seemed like a top-shelf weekly. Then, when I learnt Spanish and began to understand the sub-titles and side-bars on the front I discovered it was more interested in current affairs and politics than anything else. Then I realised that it wasn’t just models or wannabe celebrities who posed for the cover. It was just as likely to be high-profile TV presenters, respected actresses and – most recently – royalty who’d be seen topless on it. In the two years that I’ve dedicated myself to my art, I’ve often wondered what it’d be like to see myself on the cover of Interviu magazine. It seemed like a dream at the start. Then it gradually became an ambition. Now, it’s a reality.
For bra fetishists, the reality of naked female breasts can never be as stimulating or significant to them as the way that those breasts can be presented by a brassiere that perfects their shape. A fantasy bust and ideal cleavage is something that exists only in cinema, magazine spreads or photographically enhanced advertising.
Bra fetishism relies upon a delicate balance achieved between the amount of breast displayed and the volume hidden by the garment itself.
More than any other item of lingerie, the bra is composed of architectural highlights that can be appreciated in isolation or as parts of the satisfying whole.
The back-or front-fastening, the cups and whether the material used to make it is sheer, or not, are all vital considerations to the bra fetishist.
Most important to the continued fetishistic power of the bra are its straps or lack of. They divide the body of the woman that wears them into pieces that can be appreciated as individual components in the same way that the cups frame and promote the cleavage-itself a phenomenon that doesn’t exist beyond the benefits that the bra provides.
The position of the straps is also important because if a partially visible one gradually slips down a shoulder in public, without the knowledge of the wearer, it can provide an abiding source of excitement and arousal for the fetishistic gaze.
Choosing The Right Bra
Choosing the right bra to wear is just as difficult as choosing the right pair of panties. Although I don’t have quite as many bras as I have panties to mis-match them with, the fact that I’m a lingerie fetishist means it’s never going to be easy to make the right choice. There are a few factors that must be taken into consideration: factors that must always be taken into consideration: I can’t begin to count the amount of times that I’ve chosen a bra then found out – only after I put a top on over it, – that it wasn’t the look I wanted. Then I have to peel the top off, slip on a different bra and start all over again. With a low neck-line you need one that helps to promote a killer cleavage. Other times you’ll need to achieve a seamless effect or you might have a designer dress that can only look its best with a strapless bra underneath. There are times when having decorative bra straps showing underneath the plain ones of a simple dress can be the biggest turn-on imaginable for a bra fetishist. Occasionally, just having decent support can mean more than style ever could. One of the biggest anxieties that women have with padded bras is that moment when they take them off in front of a new lover. The very worst thing that can happen is that he discovers – to his surprise and disappointment – that he has […]
Lingerie on the Beach
I wore lingerie on the beach at Barcelona instead of a bikini and, as I posed for the photographer, the sand was cool on my pale belly. As an authentic redhead, it’s hard for me to spend any serious time on the beach in the summer so I took my chance in January and chose my outfit with that in mind. I love mismatched lingerie so I made sure that I made an impression with my transparent polka-dot bra, tight black boy-shorts, hold-up stockings and high heels. The image of those heels digging into the sand – as I walked along the beach – stuck in my mind as the photographer did his work. As I lay there, the sun became too bright for my green eyes and I had to cover my face with my warm, red hair. It seemed obvious to play with this idea by using the blindfold from Le Boudoir that I had in my bag for emergencies. Even though knew that there were nude sunbathers a little further up the beach, I felt more conscious of them under the lace blindfold than if I could’ve seen where they were looking. I suspected that some of them might be photographing our shoot for their own benefit but I didn’t really care. I just posed and felt safe and reassured that I was warm, dry and that the cool waves washed up way behind me where they couldn’t reach. Instead, the cold water crept up and shocked […]
Confessions of a Lingerie Fetishist
I’ve always been a lingerie fetishist – I believe they you can never have enough suspender belts, stockings and, especially, bras. I love all bras. From push-ups which enhance cleavage, to comfy sports bras and, especially, transparent bras which enhance hard nipples – they’re all important parts of my collection. The right bra can do so much to promote self-confidence and encourage a more eroticised image that it still amazes me that so many women just buy blind and hope for the best. Panties have developed from their ordinary origins into a variety of specific modern forms that fit almost any professional scenario or erotic opportunity. These styles include Boy shorts, G-strings, thongs, high-waisted, crotchless and retro versions. Panty decorations can now comprise numerous different frills, ribbons and costume jewellery. I’ve always wanted a pair of fitted, latex ones, if I’m honest. Putting on stockings and a suspender belt takes time and effort to get the right effect. Tights are easy – they can just be put on without any thought needed as to how short a skirt is or if my legs are smoothly shaved or not. I’ve recently become a fan of vintage lingerie because it feels like a protective suit of fabric armour beneath my outerwear. High waisted panties and a six-strap suspender belt makes me seem glamourous and feminine at the same time as they prevent easy access. An authentic set of retro-underwear leaves a lot to the imagination because it hides a higher percentage of […]
My Love for Red Lingerie – Venus O’Hara
Normally, red lingerie is perceived as being really tacky. It’s associated with harlots, cheesy Valentine’s Day lingerie sets and Mother Christmas outfits. As I adjusted the fit of the red lingerie and smoothed my breasts into a killer cleavage, I thought about how much I loved this bra, not just because it fits me so well but for the fact it’s elegant and avoids the tackiness of other “red” underwear. The worst of all are those pieces thrown together out of shiny, unflatteringly cheap fabric. They’re more like a nasty orange colour than real red. After the bra’s front-fastening was opened, my freckled nudity almost merged into the white wall behind me. I’m conscious of the fetish potential of my red hair, white skin and green eyes-this shoot made me more aware of it than ever. The rich red motif was extended from the bra to include my glistening lipstick, red fingernails and the ripe strawberries that passed for succulent nipples. When those reds emphasised my eyes, blazing in the middle of my blowing hair-the image was almost complete. As I took the red tip of the fruit between my glossy lips and slowly sucked-I knew it was perfect. I love the effect of red on my skin and I always will. [nggallery id=3] Photos by Yuky.
High-Waisted Panties – Venus O’Hara
A while ago, I wouldn’t have been seen dead wearing a pair of high-waisted panties. They were so old fashioned and unpopular that I couldn’t imagine ever wanting to own a pair. Now though, retro underwear is so in demand, particularly 1950s bullet – bras, corsets and stockings, that I really felt the lack of a well fitting pair of black, high-waisted, panties. After I found a pair and tried them on for the first time I discovered, very quickly, why they lost popularity. They’re not exactly the easiest things to put on or take off as I found out the first time I went to the bathroom. I did find an instant advantage though – they felt like a suit of fabric armour underneath whatever I was wearing. It was like having a secret outfit underneath my outer one. During the shoot I thought it would be sexier to leave out the stockings altogether and have the detachable suspender straps hanging down. Matched with a black bra, the panties almost became a body, hugging my curves and emphasising my vintage style. I wanted to get the “cabaret” look, so I put my hair up, covered it with a trilby hat and emphasised my long white neck in the mirror. The high – waisted panties looked so much like a girdle in the reflected image that I understood the power of the vintage fetish more than ever. [nggallery id=16] Photos by Yuky.
