Girdles and garters – Good Golly, Get Real!
Thank goodness, times change and fashions change and we no longer have to hoist ourselves up, push ourselves in, and squeeze ourselves into articles of clothing that are more like articles of torture!
Or do we??? Some people still kind of like and want the types of figures that require trussing and tying that girdles will give you. I’m sure GaGa wears girdles, but that’s her outerwear! Especially if it’s a girdle made out of meat! (Sorry Gaga – we do love you!)
Girdles arent’ commonly worn today – not when we have much easier to wear Spanx. But if you are interested in – they come in a variety of types – full body corselettes, or open bottom half girdles, girdle panties, with or without garters. And garters can add a new dimension of sexiness to your lingerie wardrobe for those sultry, sexy evenings with your man – Truth is, garters are much more appealing to men than they could possibly be to women!
Girdles hold everything in, and they support your lower back. So there’s some sense to them. But I remember them as being hot and sweaty and they are so tight in the waist that they create those dreadful muffin tops we hate!
Like everything else, girdles and garters are making a comeback. None other than Victoria’s Secret is popularizing these “sexy” articles of clothing – they might make a woman feel sexier and a man might love to see them – but Good Golly, you naturally beautiful women, for me — Girdles and Garters be Gone!!
