Alright Dolls, who knows where to get a high-waisted, control-top panty that is actually cute? Spanx are so ugly and I don't really need anything on my thighs. I also do not need a 'bootie' enhancer (WTF?).
I would like something kind of like the bottom Doris is wearing in this set of pictures:
Any advice would be great!
I believe she's actually wearing the six strap garter belt from PUG http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/garter-belt-six-black.html
but that's not really underwear
I don't know where you are but a store where I live (Europe) has these which are adorable
(they also have a U.K. branch)
as for the U.S. , have you looked at What Katy Did yet?
I DO have some high waisted panties from What Katie Did. They are quite wonderful. They are expensive though. So I try to buy my WKD things when they are on sale. If you get on their email list you can find out when the sales occur. Here is an example of one pair of panties that I own:
But I also DO need bootie enhancement at times. What I was not born with, I have to add one way or the other.
I am looking at the RAGO brand sold at JCPenny as well. There are a few pairs that are cute...I wonder if they sell them in stores? I would prefer to try them on. But I am now lusting over a ton of stuff at WKD and now my budget if officially ruined ;)
Have you tried the Skimp Skamp panties by Bali? They've been making them forever, and you can get them pretty much at any major department store.
But, be very aware of the size. I ordered an XS and could have used a Small. there is no zipper or anything, so you have to pull the tiny waist elastic up over your hips. In my case, my waist is 12 inches smaller than my hips, so I could barely do this! I am going to wear them for a photo shoot and then I don't think I will be able to wear them for normal wear :(
