When I was trying to find my ideal suspender-belt, I discovered-very quickly-that it was a much more difficult task than I had imagined. All of the ones that I looked at first were vulgar, unflattering and ordinary. I wanted something that wasn’t going to date or go out of fashion and I realised that with retro fetish lingerie you really can’t go wrong. I found my perfect suspender belt: Its vintage, six-strap, design was sophisticated, flattering and timelessly seductive.
I was even happier when I also found the perfect panties to wear in the shoot. The “Seven-Til-midnight” floral lace shorts, which were bought for me, have a lacing detail at the back that flaunts the derrière cleavage perfectly. When I attached the black retro seamed stockings and looked at myself I felt like a 1950s pin-up girl rehearsing cheesecake poses for an automobile calendar.
The kinky way to wear suspenders is to have the straps inside the panties so you can peel them down without wasting time unfastening first. For me, the best thing about wearing any suspender belt is the feel of my naked thighs touching each other when everything else is clothed and covered.
