# 150 – Panties
White stretch mech and lace thong, size small. I think I sourced these for a Playboy South Africa shoot from either La Senza or Womans Secret. They’ve been made with a little too much gusset length which invites them to be worn in a retro 80’s super-high leg cut like shown here.

Lumo-orange, Mr.Price g-string. This is part of a three pack (all lump shades).  They came out just after Hanky Panky launched in SA and I think they’re a bit of a rip off but very comfy fit.

#82 – Bustier/Bra
Size small, CottonOn stretch bustier with lace back detail. This piece was bought for the Miss July Playmate shoot which was done in my studio…all the pieces were sourced pretty last minute as the shoot was scheduled so late!

#83 – Lingerie Set
Black, tasselled La Senza lingerie. These came from the once-apon-a-time La Senza sale shop. They’re a hard piece to work with in a shoot as the tassels need to be in order.

#84 – Lingerie Set
Black mesh lingerie set with peek-a-boo cut and matching lace. These were bought at one of those underground Chinese shops about 10 years back. Totally ridiculous but kind of amazing. Vertically open cup top and totally open crotch knickers.

Panties for Playboy

#77 – Panties
Pink, size medium knickers with lace detail and mint bow. These were bought for the Playboy Playmate Miss July shoot in 2013 and were used for some of her very basic studio PR shots, they’re quite sweet with a ruched detail over the bum.

 

078 -The Collection Catalogued for TheSofterSex

#78 – Bra
Black final and mesh bra top with metal buckle detail. Surprisingly a La Senza piece. This was back wen they were being a bit more adventurous with there designs…

Mr.Price, size medium black mesh, boy-cut panties with mauve dot print and bow. These were a gift and were added straight to the collection. A not-so-great cut, and an item thats never had any use.

Black lace bustier bra from Woolworth, size 32B. This was bought and never used for the Playboy Playmate, Miss July shoot in 2012. Its not a great cut or fit which is probably why I never shot with it.

Blue & white cotton lingerie set, MrPrice. A surprisingly cool lingerie set from Mr.Price, bought 9 years ago. They had the set n red as well which I also bought. Very roll-in-the-hay farm-girl looking set.
