By Naeve Rossini 

If you know me, you know that I love cute. Insolence’s relatively new Flore is all sorts of cute with extra cute whip cream on top. As soon as I put this on, I could just imagine the entire setting where I’d wear it… greeting my sweetie in the morning with the smell of coffee wafting in with me. For someone who loves demure lingerie, Flore really satisfies.

There are basically two bras and two panties for you to mix and match. You get a triangle bra and a balconette bra, as well as a regular panty and a side-string panty. You also get teddy attachments that you can add to the bras and bows to add to the panties.

The first thing that captured my interest was the darling little teddy ruffle, which featured just the right amount of airy flounce and with some nice details, too. I like that the cut is relatively conservative. Even the side-string panty isn’t as lurid as some of the other options I’ve seen.

What’s “Just Right”: What’s absolutely right right right about Flore is that it captures “cute and girly” right on. Wearing this lingerie had me thinking of lazy Sunday mornings and relaxing with a hot cup of tea and a special someone.

What Could Use Improvement: While they’re so very pretty, the details on the bra and panties get washed out. I’d love to see this be a little crisper. Sabella adds that she would love to see a bow for the bra, similar to the one for the panties.

Little She-Devil

Bax Prestige BootsBarbed Wire Bangles
Hand on HipSorceress
By Naeve Rossini

BlackLace unveiled the Belial: Red Leather Devil Costume at their
Halloween line launch show at the Runway Cafe on 10 October. I was teased with it in the announcement notecard and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. What can I say? I put this on a week and a half before Halloween and I’ve been wearing it ever since!

I’ve loved BlackLace’s products ever since the first time I set foot in their store and every time I go back, there’s something new to fall in love with. Belial is no exception and it honours their high standard of quality.

The lingerie is a saucy leather strap affair, practically a harness-turned-teddy by the addition of some of the best sheer fabric texturing I’ve seen. While it’s naughty enough to skirt the edge of fetish, it still retains the mystique of lingerie in a perfect balance.

Although the extra parts were included to complete the outfit, I never expect extras to measure up as well as products where the designer specializes in, say, horns or boots. The ones provided were decent, but were ultimately supplanted by products from Illusions and Bax Coen, respectively. The wings were pretty good and I opted not to search for alternatives.

What’s “Just Right”: The whole combo just works together. Even with the included horns and boots, it looks unified with each piece complementing the others. It manages to make someone terminally saccharine in appearance look even mildly sultry, so kudos to BlackLace on that! My favourite part of the whole outfit is the sheer textures in the teddy and the stockings. The highlights and shadows and hints of red are just right.

What Could Use Improvement: Speaking directly to the lingerie, I would have liked to see leather straps that weren’t quite as glossy. The effect seemed a little less realistic to me, though the complaint is really like quibbling over whether one brand of caviar is better than another. I would have liked to see some kind of boning in the teddy to match the rear garter straps; they just seem structurally odd where they are currently placed.

Featured Outfit Details:
Featured Outfit: Belial Red Leather Devil Costume by BlackLace (In World, SL Marketplace); alas, there is only one colour available only in-world
Price: $450
Pieces: 26; 10 clothing, 16 prim, plus 7 non-clothing objects

Ratings:
Detailing: A- Fabulous job altogether, extra impressed with the highlights and shadows on the sheer parts, but the leather straps could stand to have slightly improved textures to give it a more realistic appearance
Prim Attachments: Wings, Horns (not shown), Pendant, Bangles, Charm Bracelets (not shown), Boots (not shown)
Resizing Scripts: There are resizer scripts in all of the prim attachments except the pendant
Permissions: No Copy, No Modify, Transfer; the prims (except boots) have limited Modify permissions, although they appear to be No Modify due to the scripts’ permissions
Tattoo Friendly: Yes; you just need to be careful which layers you select as some will overlap with others and you’ll end up with lighter/darker sections of sheer fabric
Curvy Girl Friendly: Yes
Sim Rating: PG

Lush Green Urban Renewal

Naeve in CG Lush

Boobs

Butt

Booyah

By Naeve Rossini

There are many things I love about Lush and a few things I wish were a little different, but overall I enjoyed this offering so much, I bought the fat pack.

Lush really shows off the curves. ChronoSalp Galaxy‘s lingerie really flatter my shape, highlighting and drawing attention to my top and bottom with just enough sass, mixed with a touch of lacy class.

This is lingerie meant for showing off. If you’re the right sort of girl, this may be for you.

What I mean is that it looks demure on the surface, but if you allow the camera to wander close enough, you will find its sordid secrets between the legs. For the sake of this blog, we won’t be zooming up close for you, but suffice it to say the designer’s ads have little ovals on them for a reason.

Speaking of the designer, ChronoSalp has done a good job with creating a satiny texture and combines it well with intricate lace. Altogether, I am very pleased with the results and with her choice of color options. Too often, I see colors that are altogether unrealistic, but ChronoSalp has chosen very realistic and elegant colors for Lush.

Sadly, there aren’t a lot of lingerie choices at her shop. It’s mostly stockings. My hope is that more lingerie will appear with time.

(There’s a PG store and an Adult store, but they’re practically identical in offerings.)

What’s “Just Right”: I just have to say straight out that the curve of the back of the panty and the garter belt straps is perfect for showing off my bottom. I wouldn’t change a thing there. The lace is also phenomenal, both scalloped around my breasts and those stocking tops. Yum! The bra is cut in a way that really enhances cleavage and has that naughtiness of appearing like the band has tucked under the breast a little for us bustier girls.

What Could Use Improvement: It’s going to sound like minute nitpicking, but I would love to see just a little more texture in the satin to give it more of a fabric texture. It’s just a hair too glossy. My only other desire is for a garter belt with some triangular satin panels holding each belt and some combined layers for those that want to add tattoos/body shine/whatever underneath the lingerie.

Featured Outfit Details:
Featured Outfit: Lush in Emerald Green by ChronoSalp Galaxy (In World, SL Marketplace); also available (not shown) in Azure Blue, BlackSilver, Red Poppy and Tyrian White
Price: $150-250 each; $400 fat pack ($600 savings)
Pieces: 16, standard layers plus tattoo layer

Ratings:
Detailing: A- ChronoSalp’s texture work on the lace is excellent. The satin bra cups are a little too uniform, but it still pulls of the shiny-but-not-latex look well. My only real beef is the bra straps disappearing somewhat and the band-like shape of the garter belt.
Prim Attachments: Not Applicable
Resizing Scripts: Not Applicable
Tattoo Friendly: Somewhat. The bra is entirely tattoo friendly, but you’ll have to choose between the panty or the garter for lower body tattoos. There is a bra and panty combo, but it’s made for the tattoo layer, which doesn’t really help for tattoos.
Curvy Girl Friendly: Yes
Sim Rating: PG

The Key to the Boudoir

Naeve & Sabella in CIPHER

Naeve Close Up


Darling Duo


Naeve Piano Solo


Sabella Lounging


Torso Closeup
By Naeve Rossini

The first time I ever heard of Cipher, it was when I inspected an awesome sculpted biker’s jacket worn by someone much taller than me. For sure, Cipher (and Cipher Ivory) is not about lingerie; the highlight of her store is her collection of jackets (men and women) and the overall feel is somewhat punk and eclectic. It’s a testament to the quality of her work that her one clear piece of lingerie gets the nod for this blog.

What’s “Just Right”: I love this outfit! There are so many things going right for it, I don’t know where to start. How about my butt? As a girl whose backside is probably her best feature, Cipher’s Armaros lingerie does a fantastic job of highlight all my curves in that area. So many designers have garter belts that seem to just wrap around the hips in a straight line. Cipher’s creation, on the other hand, has a natural sweep to it that gives my hips a lovely curve and fill to them.

The thong, too, does all the right things to show off that butt and to decorate the front with deliciously pretty patterns without giving away all of a girl’s secrets. The corset is likewise, exquisitely detailed.

One of the greatest highlights of this lingerie set is the sheer number of options that you can choose to wear. There are a whopping 53 pieces to the set, not to mention an additional 5 textures just to show you some of the combinations you can wear. This should be the standard for lingerie makers, especially for bra and panty and garter belt sets.

What Could Use Improvement: The one spot where I would like the most improvement is in the garter straps. This may be a “curvy girl” issue, but there was noticeable pixelation (albeit no distortion) in the straps as the came down over my butt.

The other part that could use a little more attention is the bra. I would like to see a little more separation between it and the corset, but more than that, I’d like to see some more detail in it to match the level found in the other pieces. For the purple bra, the colour’s just a little too bright compared to the duller shades in the other pieces. More delicate lace and less satin and it would have been perfect.

Featured Outfit Details:
Featured Outfit: Armaros by Cipher (In World, SL Marketplace), available in Black, Blue (not shown), Purple, Red (not shown) and White (not shown)
Price: $300 each; $1300 fat pack ($200 savings); Free Demo
Pieces: 53, just about every combination and every layer under the sun

Ratings:
Detailing: A- The detailing in the corset, garter belt and thong are so good that they overshadow the bra. Unfortunately, the garter strap distortion drops the mark down a bit.
Prim Attachments: Not Applicable
Resizing Scripts: Not Applicable
Tattoo Friendly?: OMG is it ever! Pick a layer, any layer.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes, except for some distortion around the garter belt’s straps
Multi-purpose pieces?: You can mix and match all you want with this outfit. The stockings in particular lend well to other outfits, but the rest of it is clearly bedroom wear (unless you’re the sort to wear bedroom wear in public).
Sim Rating?: PG. It’s risquee, but less revealing than most swimwear.

BONUS!!!

While Sabella and I were shopping for the lingerie, we were so distracted by another display in the corner, we had to buy the other outfit, too.

Behold the Captain(s) Lacey!

Pirate Gurls

What’s “Just Right”: If you love lace, you have to get this outfit. The detail is absolutely luscious, especially on the stockings. The whole ensemble looks fantastic and even if you forego the skirt, you’ll be turning heads, pirate or not. There are options to be as demure (Naeve) or as racy (Sabella) as you’d like. (You could go racier by dropping the panty, but this is a PG blog.)

As a related item, I really liked the eyepatch that came with the hat. Alas, the hat, hair and eyepatch are all one object. Very well done, though. At first I thought it’d be too gaudy, but once I put it on, it totally worked for the outfit.

What Could Use Improvement: There’s very little that I’d like to see improved, although if I had to nitpick, I’d ask for some more highlights in the corset texture as well as giving the skirt a lacier feel to it. The satin look that it has now looks a little too “solid” and I’d like to see it look softer.

Bonus Outfit Details:
Bonus Outfit: Lacey Mini-Dress by Cipher (In World, SL Marketplace); available in Black (not shown) and Red
Price: $400 Lacey Mini-Dress; Naeve’s hat is $200; Naeve’s choker is $200; the whole set, along with a pair of Strangle II Belted Boots (not shown) is $1000 in the Captain Lacey Punk Pirate All In Pack.
Pieces: 19 (9 clothing, 10 prims)

Ratings:
Detailing: A+ This outfit is very strong on detail in every piece.
Prim Attachments: 10; 2 skirts (pelvis), 2 lace collars (chest and spine), 2 lace cuffs (right and left upper arm), 2 garters (right and left hip), 2 arm warmers (right and left forearm)
Resizing Scripts: No
Tattoo Friendly?: Yes. The outfit covers a lot of skin
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes
Multi-purpose pieces?: The skirt isn’t very multipurpose, but the stockings and the corset can definitely be mixed and matched with other clothing to great effect.

Vox do You Think?

Vox, by Hugo Designs GUEST REVIEW!!
By Naeve Rossini

I found out about Hugo’s Design from a forum thread about BDSM style. I was not at all prepared for the visual orgy when I teleported into the store. The store is wonderfully laid out with excellent use of posters… they were large and suggestive, with very creative mixing and matching of outfits that showed the versatility of the entire line of products.

The store itself is laid out brightly and easy to navigate, which made shopping a breeze, especially for those of us that like to cam around, rather than walk.

The prices are high, there’s no denying it, and there are no fatpacks. This outfit happens to be one of Hugo’s priciest ones, but a closer look at the textures and detailing will reveal the value of the high sticker. You get what you pay for.

The detailing is phenomenal! It’s particularly evident on the lace and patterned ones, like the pair that Sabella and I are wearing, but you can find the attention to detail in the simpler designs as well. There’s a subtlety to it that elicits the shape of a woman when you look at it. Our shapes are already curvy, but these outfits make us “fill out” in the best way possible.*

For those who like more teasing variations, the outfit can be worn without the bra and/or without the panties. Those of you with “ass men” (or women) in your lives will really appreciate the glorious emphasis of your butt with the way the garters and t-back frame it.

For that edgier, fetishy look, Hugo’s Design is a must see. Bring your pocket book.

… and a napkin.

What’s “Just Right”: A lot of latex designers will just work on the shine of their garments and put just a token effort in other detailing, but Hugo’s designer Erik Hugo has done a fantastic job with incredibly intricate details on this outfit, in addition to his distinctive glossy look. Take a close look. It’s absolutely stunning and really complements feminine curves.* There’s a fullness to the highlights and shading that makes the outfit pop out three-dimensionally without the glasses.

What Could Use Improvement: My wish list is short for this outfit. I’d love to see the bra and corset pieces available on all top layers and in combination with each other. Right now, you can do body oil or tattoos on top, but you couldn’t do both and remain modest. By comparison, the bottoms are as fully tattoo and body oil compatible as you can get. Speaking of bottoms, it would be nice to have a little more coverage in the back for the panties. A little wedge of fabric there would be a more playful hint than the string that’s there now. Fatpacks would be the death of me, but it’d be a very pleasant death.

Ratings:
Detailing: A+ The detail of the colours are fantastic, even with the white-on-white, but the thing that tips it over into the + range is the deliciously glossy latex look.
Prim Attachments: Not Applicable
Resizing Scripts: Not applicable
Tattoo Friendly?: Yes! Tops and bottoms are tattoo friendly, although a nice-to-have would be to have the top pieces available separately and together on all layers.
Curvy Girl Friendly?: Yes! It looked great on all of our curves… and we had plenty!
Multi-purpose pieces?: You could… but not really. It pretty much screams “FETISH!!!”
