Lingerie for the OH

Discussion in 'The Other Half' started by schweik, Jan 13, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Recently while viewing Arrse my attention has been somewhat distracted by the appearance of ads for Agent Provocateur webbing. The ads feature some very fit young birds who look gorgeous in the AP kit. I would love to think that I could buy up most of what they sell for Mrs Schweik (if I were to win the lottery) but in reality we're not in the first flush of youth like the AP models are, although I have to say that I find Mrs S. to be quite tidy even after 20years of marriage. Even so, I'm not sure that the AP kit is quite the stuff for a lady of Mrs S's, er, mature(ish) years.

    So the question is where do I go for sexy kit for someone who has gone (just) beyond the AP demographic. I must stress that she ain't a fat munter, she just wouldn't suit the gear that AP sells.

    Sensible answers, please, we are nowhere near the Mature Dating scenario (even if Rebecca is only 3 miles away!)

    It'll last a lifetime. Or maybe it'll just seem like it.

    I must admit the older stuff from the 80s looks way better than the current shite they parade at the moment which makes me think its purely cost related as lingery used to have a primary function so a proper suspender belt could be worn in comfort for hours as opposed to a 20 min photo shoot.

    a nice are properly framed in a fitted set of sussies looks way better than the stringy stuff they flog with or without a skirt over the top.

    If I'd been paid for the hours and hours of teenage research I'd be drained and wealthy instead of just drained.

    there was one blond who had the centre spread type shot and she was in green webbing - georgeous.
     
  10. I'd strongly advise against buying stuff for her. Different makes are different sizes and she'll get the hump if she has to exchange something for a size bigger - and if she needs to exchange for a size smaller, it'll be you who gets it in the neck for presuming that she's a fat tart.

    Let her try the stuff on, make her choice and you smile sweetly while you tap in your PIN.

    Besides, if you go in without her, you'll be served by a Diesel Fitter. "Size 12? Yep, dies'll fit 'er".
     
  11. I said "smile sweetly", not "grin".

    I mean look at this lot and you see what I mean - stockings and suspenders - Designer and Luxury stockings and suspenders

    its not sexy if you get my meaning the advertising is all wrong as the cut is all over the place. proper companies like berlei and triumph spent decades getting the cut and shapes right.

    benny hill and kenny everett wouldnt be the same with the stuff they sell nowadays :)
