At the end of September, we were privileged to give you a ‘sneak peek’ at an upcoming release by SeldomBlue — Rosa. Well, this flower has bloomed in a big, big way, and is now available! Especially for the holidays, there are three groups of releases: A full ‘fat pack’ in 7 different colors, a ‘limited pack’ in Caramel, and a Christmas themed dollarbie in white and red. We’ve been given the opportunity to share it with our readers, even before the ‘official’ public release announcement!
Based on their previous releases, we’ve come to expect high quality and loads of layering options from SeldomBlue. The Rosa ensemble takes it to a whole new level. It isn’t just a bra and panty set, or just a corset… it’s also a basque and a peignoir. IndigoBlue Dagostino has outdone herself, with a stunning FIFTY FOUR pieces in the fat pack.
and 27 in the Caramel limited release (Corrected to note that the Caramel release has the full 54 pieces: due to some sort of weird inventory bug, not all the pieces were showing for me). It took me a few minutes to really grasp just how many options are available, it’s that mind boggling.
Stealing from the notes IndigoBlue supplied me, the fat packs include: “long basque, long basque with peignoir, cupless long basque, cupless long basque with peignoir, short basque, short basque with peignoir, cupless short basque, cupless short basque with peignoir, bra, bra with peignoir, peignoir only, full cut panties, full cut panties with garter-belt, thong, thong with garter-belt, garter-belt only, thigh-high stay up
stockings, stockings for garter-belt, garter bows, bra bow, hip frills, peignoir arm frills, and a peignoir skirt.” Takes your breath away, doesn’t it?
What’s “Just Right”: Hands down, the massive array of options is the strong point of this ensemble. But that shouldn’t take attention away from the exquisite femininity of the garments. From the soft, sheer bows to the flowing lace, the naughty or nice versions, the lovely cut of the panties… there is a LOT to celebrate with Rosa. I was delighted at the two stockings – the upward tug of the fabric for those designed to work with the garter-belt, and the clean, smooth line of the thigh-high ‘stay ups.’
What Could Use Improvement: While I really like the actual lace patterning, if there is a weak spot to the outfit, it lies in the textured roses at the bust and hip line. It’s really hard to capture something as three-dimensional as a rose in bloom, on flat fabric, and while a strong attempt was made… if I have to pinpoint a weakness, that would be it.
Other things to note: The Christmas Dollarbie includes an adorable marabou shrug/bolero, and a Short corset, thong, stockings, garter-belt, and garter-belt prim bows. Rosa is not currently available on The Marketplace, but Seldom Blue does have a very strong presence there. As a side note, while I’m not usually drawn to outfits with too many colors combined, I have to say that the Passion version is very intriguing and will probably be finding its way into my closet in the near future… 😉
