I am fully aware of the fact that I don’t often mention knickers in my posts, this is mainly because I don’t find them particularly interesting. If I’m honest, I probably wouldn’t wear knickers if I didn’t post daily photos on social media! On the other hand, I put so much effort into the rest of my underwear, that it seems to be a shame to not complete the full set with pretty knickers. As such, I have promised myself that I will invest in some good knickers this year!
I very much like the look of tap pants and French knickers over a suspender belt, I think they can look very retro. So with that in mind, I went in search of some affordable knickers to wear with my daily underwear. I stumbled across Miss Discreet quite by accident, and I purchased quite a lot of underwear from their website as a lot of it is quite affordable but also to my taste. Miss Discreet stocks a nice selection of knickers, stockings, suspender belts, bras and girdles, some of which the owner designs herself, whereas other items are from various other brands such as Naturana.
I wanted to share my review of the below three styles, as I think they are the perfect start to my knicker collection!
I work in an office, which is not the most exciting place to spend eight hours a day, five days a week. For this reason, I like to feel sexy and glamorous, which I achieve by wearing underwear that not only accentuates my body, but also makes me feel sexy. I like feeling 14 suspender clips against my thighs, I like wearing nipple-less bras and I certainly like satin knickers! The first day that I wore these knickers, I felt like a sex-kitten.
I don’t know if you have particular underwear that you look forward to wearing? Well I do, and these knickers have certainly been added to the list. not only do they feel wonderful, but I think they also look great. The satin adds a touch of glamour, and the ivory lace with baby blue accents are incredibly feminine. I really enjoy wearing them over my suspender belt, but they can of course be worn on their own too.
Size: UK 18 – 20
When I ordered these knickers, I ordered size 14 – 16. A short while after placing the order, I received an email from Julie, Miss Discreet’s owner, asking about the sizes that I had chosen. She wanted to make sure that I had the correct size for my measurements, and after a quick email exchange, she suggested that I should try the 18 – 20 pair. I was happy to take her advice, as she knows her products; I am very happy that I did as they fit a lot better than the smaller size would have done. I was extremely impressed with her attention to detail and customer service, and would now always go with her recommendations.
If you live in a hot climate as I do in Australia, you will understand how important it is to wear clothes that allows your skin to breathe. This knickers are so sheer and light that it feels like I’m wearing nothing at all, and they work extremely well with a suspender belt in the summer. The polka dots and flower motifs are also feminine. In my opinion, these knickers would be perfect not only for daily wear, but also for photoshoots, they are so damn pretty!
Julie actually sent these knickers to me as a sample, they come in both black and white. I love these so much that I will be ordering a black pair.
Size: UK 18 – 20
I would say that the sizing of these knickers is very similar to the previous pair of knickers. I could have worn the 14 – 16, but the larger size just feels a lot of floaty and comfortable.
Yes, I love floaty and light knickers, they make me feel very pretty, however I must remember that my tummy is one of my problem areas and it needs to be controlled. If I want to wear something more form-fitting, I probably wouldn’t wear the above two pairs, as my body would not look shaped the way I like it to be.
These knickers however, are perfect for controlling my tummy, hips and bum, they are so strong! I was initially very nervous about these knickers as I thought they might cut into my inner thighs (I have had this problem before), but the placement of the stretch lace prevents this from happening.
The fabric is stretchy but firm, and looks best (in my opinion) over a suspender belt. This will of course make visiting the ladies room much easier!
Size: Waist Size:31″ to 32″
I went with my waist measurement and they fit perfectly.
