|I shop at Sn@tch for their awesome jeans (fantastic highlight and shadow work on the rear end!!) and when I got a group notice about this outfit, I made a mental note that I needed to share it with ya’ll. Ivey makes a huge array of accessory and clothing items, in styles ranging from alternative rocker wear to punk, dolly to goth, urban to schoolgirl, and everything in between. (She also makes neko tails/hairs, skins, poses, furniture, buildings.. you name it! And there are multiple releases EVERY SINGLE WEEK. Her level of creative productivity is just mind boggling.) Almost all of her outfits are offered in a group of colors for one small price – including the “Reveal Thyself Tank Garters” ensemble. Now, it’s definitely lingerie, but as to how to classify it, that I’m not 100% sure about… “cute” is unquestionably applicable! (They call it a bodysuit, but it’s more like a gartered teddy, to me…) As with most outfits by Sn@tch, you get a ‘pack’ of colors (purple leopard, pink leopard, leopard, blue leopard, black leopard); I loved the black leopard spot.
What’s “Just Right”: The styling of “Reveal Thyself” is fun, playful and sexy. I love the way the outfit is solid over the breasts and smoothly transitions to sheerness. The femininity of the spaghetti straps and bust-line and the soft curve of the hem are a big plus. The lines of the tanga panty are very well done – the crotch area is smooth and fit my avatar perfectly.
What Could Use Improvement: I wish that the back had garters as well, but alas, it doesn’t. That would have nudged “Reveal Thyself” into a more classic lingerie style – and it may simply be that Ivey was staying true to her rocker-girl, punky roots. I would have loved to see some prim accessories for this: Maybe little bitty black satin or velvet bows? (Ok, I admit it, I have a distinct weakness for bows and ribbons.)
Other things to note: I love something Ivey has on her blog and wanted to quote it. “Sn@tch is a tolerant and mature environment where Kids, Tinies, Nekos, Furries, Goths, Demons. Zombies, Goreans, RPers and yes HUMANS are welcome. Please be nice to each other..” I really like the open and affirming nature of this statement and thought it was worth drawing attention to. 🙂 Sn@tch takes part in a variety of discount/special sale groups, has outfits you can ‘fish’ for, Midnight Madness, Fortune Teller, Riot Vendor, Lucky Chairs, and all manner of means of getting your fashion-grubby hands on stuff at a very, very low price.
