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.

Black stretch lace string with white ribbon detailing, size medium, “bm intimates” from Mr.Price. These were originally sourced for a French Made themed photoshoot somewhere in 2006. They’ve been used in a number of shoots including this private commission above which was shot in the dungeon in the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town.

Black cotton tanga pantie from Woolworths, came in a 3-set. (black, red and a floral print), size small. A useful cut for many shoots which is why I bought them.

White cotton boiled briefs from Mr.Price. These came in a 2-set (the others are an inverse of these). They were bought and sourced for a soccer theme nude shoot in 2010 just before the World Cup in Cape Town.

Black lace strappy thong made in Thailand, size “XL” but actually a small. These were a gift from my aunt when she lived Thailand about 8 years ago. They’re fun, comfortable and a surprisingly good fit.

Mr. Price, yellow lace with black stretch mesh, g-string, medium. I bought these (part of a three set) for a Playboy photoshoot in 2013. I think I may have used one of the other pairs in the set for a PR image but probably never used these.

Blue mesh stretch thong with black polka dots and ruffle detail. These were part of a gift from my cousin but not quite my style and so they went straight into the collection. They’re one of those annoying cuts where the gusset is so long that the hip bands end up sitting way to high making one feel like you’ve returned to the early 90’s. Just goes to show how many minor design changes happen over years with underwear which can totally place it to an era.

Pale pink, La Senza thong which goes with a matching negligee. This tiny pair of knickers is yet to be used in one of my photoshoots. I bought it, with its matching negligee at La Senza when they still had a huge factory shop and everything went for cheap-cheap.

White, size medium boy leg cut lace panties. I have two identical pairs of these which, I think, were handed down to me for the collection by a friend who was doing a clear out.

Size absolutely tiny, “made by China”, grey cotton panties with white frill details. These really are ridiculously small and I can only imagine an incredible petite or super slender woman (like my amazing friend modelling them above) to actually fit into them. I think they came as a sample in a shipment to my partners South African online sex-shop (passionfruit.co.za), along with a few other similarly bizarre versions.

Mr. Price, black Brazilian boy-leg cut, lace knickers. Medium. These are a reasonably comfortable cut except for the fact that the lace on the bum cheeks is almost permanently trying to slip in between the cheeks. I think I may have bought these for a Playboy photoshoot a few years back.

Mr. Price, neon pink, stretch lace, g-string, medium. I can’t help loving these. They are a fantastic and ridiculous lumo-pink and came in a set of three (yellow, green, pink).

Mr. Price, size medium, polyamide & elastine blend boy-leg cut panties. These were a gift from my sister I think but not really my style so they went straight into the collection. I’m not a fan of overly synthetic underwear, and also not a particular fan of the boy-leg cut which can often be unflattering if you don’t have the body type for them.

Red cotton knickers from Woolworths, size small. This particular cut (with only an elastic around the hip) is rare in SA which was the reason I grabbed this three pack about 7 years ago.

Cotton On, size Medium fuchsia/purple and red lace thong. I bought these on sale at Cotton On a few years back for R40.00. They’re sexy and comfortable and a duplicate set went straight into the collection.

Plum coloured, lace, boyleg panties. I didn’t expect these to look so pretty when shot, but they do. They are La Senza brooks which were gifted to the collection a few years back and have not been shot with yet. I like the slit and bow details on the front mid thighs.

Black, opaque and mesh high waisted panties. I bought these goodies at Woolworths in 2013 for the Miss July Playboy Playmate photoshoot which took place (last minute) in my Woodstock studio. The knickers are a really nice cut and design.

Black lace and mesh, side tying thong. I reckon I must have come across these at a Chinese supermarket at some stage. They are so flimsy and badly made its actually impressive.

La Senza, size medium, black & pink floral printed, high waisted knickers with frill and suspender detail. I was thrilled to buy these. They were a sale item at La Senza’s factory shop about 9 years ago and are such a great design by this brand. They remind me of some of Ellen Von Unwerth’s earlier B&W work.
The ruffles are reminiscent of 40’s designs and the suspender clips are detachable.

Acid green/yellow lace knickers with back lace-up detail. These were amongst a batch of undies, all from La Senza, that a friend decided to inherit to the collection after she broke up with her partner.

Size small, white, mesh and lace knickers. I bought these on a scouting mission for a Playboy photoshoot a few years ago. It was, I think, the Miss July Playmate story which was shot in studio very last minute. The knickers were never used in the shoot at the end but they’re still hanging around, brand new…
