A Collection of Female Attire

The Collection: Panties
#18- #20

 (Please note: This is the “archive” of the collection of shoot props (generally lingerie/womens attire somehow) that I have gathered over the last 11 years of my career.
They are catalogued by number, and description for now as well as any other relevant information about their individual histories- how I came to have the items, what shoots they might have been used for, etc.
The style in which I document an item may vary according to the type of garment/object it is).

#19 – Panties
Red, size medium, synthetic, high waisted panties with red lace and stitching details. A Cape Town “Golden Acre” find about 9 years ago, these are probably in my top 10 of favourite panties in my collection. They’ve been used quite a few times in shoots in the past, but I still, they haven’t yet been done justice. They have pockets (!) and the most fantastic retro stitching lines, reminiscent of tummy-holding-in brooks and body-shaping underwear of the 50’s.

100% cotton, size small, red Woolworths panties with white and black flower print in bikini cut. I wish South African underwear retailers would produce more underwear in this cut. I found these on sale at Woolies in Canal Walk about 5 years ago and bought them just because they’re the kind of knickers I’ve looked for in the past for shoots but couldn’t find. They were part of a three pack and so the the other two pairs (without a print design) are useful options to have. They’re kind of like the ultimate cotton knickers for their genre.

Mauve, Women’s secret, mesh, bikini-cut panties with lace details and cut-out. Size small. These are super pretty and never got worn or used for the Playboy “Miss July” Playmate shoot I bought them for in 2013. I had a limited budget and even more limited time to source for the shoot and found some amazing items on sale at Women’s Secret (which has sadly now closed its doors it seems).
