Bali Skimp Skamp Briefs and Warner's Modern Briefs Reviews





     Since I already jumped the gun in publishing both of the videos for the two Fbloggers lingerie fashion OOTDs and reviews referred to below, I decided I might as well combine the two reviews into a single post as is now noted in this post's title. If you don't have time to wade through the overly verbose way I redundantly and pretentiously repeat myself again and again in the text (that's a joke) you could simply take look at my lingerie fashion photos for outfit number 1 of 2 and outfit number 2 of 2 (and maybe watch the two very short embedded customer lingerie review YouTube videos) before, hopefully, giving me an opinion on which blouse, which pair of briefs, and which outfit you like better etc. etc. etc..
    
     You might also want to check out the blog links for the Fbloggers, Lbloggers, Bbloggers and fashionistas who commented on my last post. The bloggers who have  commented on this blog are fabulous. Their links and the links to their blogs are listed just above the questions I ask at the end of this post.
      
     Fbloggers OOTD and Lingerie Review number 1 out of 2: Tender Bud Print Bali Skimp Skamp Briefs Styled with a Laura Scott Women's Plus Black Crinkled Peasant Blouse:

    
     The "Tender Bud" print of Bali's Skimp Skamp Briefs was the catalyst for my purchase of these panties. Bali Skimp Skamp briefs have been available in a wider range of colours and prints than many other full briefs. I realise this review is coloured by my own personal preferences.
     I like the fact that the women's nylon panties by Bali Intimates are relatively full cut, but wish they could combine the features I like the most from the different styles in one panty. I love the print, feel of the fabric, high rise and long side seams of the Bali Skimp Skamp Briefs Style 2633. For the most part I like the tailoring of the Bali Skimp Skamp Briefs, but the rear panel of the panty could stand to be a bit more rounded near the side seams, and I prefer a more generously cut gusset, especially near the gusset's rear seam. I am not as big a big fan of vertical back seams as I am gusset seams, even though the vertical back seam may contribute to adding shape to the panty. I prefer the tailoring of the Bali Sleek Comfort Style 2272 which I reviewed in my post titled "A Briefs Update Part 4 - with Customer Lingerie Review Videos" and uploaded a video review of titled: "MOV-male-models-Bali-Sleek_Comfort-full-brief-panties-26.AVI ". The nylon fabric of the Sleek Comfort briefs was not woven as finely as the fabric used in the Skimp Skamp Briefs.
         
     I purchased pairs of the Bali Skimp Skamp Brief 2633 in Tender Bud Print from Freshpair, from HerRoom, and from Bealls Florida. This panty is also available from One Hanes Place, from Bare Necessities, and from many other retailers and fine department stores.
    
    
     For this outfit of the day I styled these pretty Tender Bud Print Bali Skimp Skamp briefs with a black Laura Scott Women's Plus Black Crinkled Peasant Blouse which I purchased from Sears
    
Quoting from the Sears webpage:
"Stylish smocking and carefree crinkle deliver trendy texture to this Laura Scott women's plus top. Smocking at the neckline, cuffs and hem create a decidedly feminine look, while the keyhole opening with beaded ties lend a laid-back folkloric vibe to this soft, stretch jersey knit top."
    
"Smocked scoop neck Keyhole opening with beaded front ties Smocked short sleeves Crinkle texture Smocked blouson hem Jersey knit construction Fabric: Polyester/cotton/spandex blend Care: Machine wash Imported"

MOV-Lingerie-Review-Bali-Intimates-Skimp-Skamp-Full-Brief-Panties.AVI      
    

     
    
     I purchased the pretty Laura Scott Crinkled Peasant Blouse from Sears and chose to style it in this OOTD and lingerie review in order to provide a sharp contrast with the white background of the Bali Skimp Skamp Tender Bud Print Briefs. I purchased three pairs of these briefs - one each from Freshpair, HerRoom and Bealls. The Laura Scott Peasant top was a touch longer than I had hoped, so I has to tuck it up a bit to reveal the panties I was reviewing. If I had let the blouse drape naturally it would have showcased the blouse's feminine look better and hit at the very low hip.
    
TRANSCRIPT: "The pair of ladies full brief panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing in this customer lingerie review video, is Bali Intimates Skimp Skamp full brief panty in Tender Bud Print. Uh, this particular pair of panties is one that I was thinking of wearing to National Underwear Day in Times Square, but chickened out, um, as per usual. Um, this, uh particular brief, the Bali Skimp Skamp Brief was also a former winter, winner in HerRoom's Undie Awards. Uh, the fit and feel is fabulous, the, the material feels wonderful against my skin, and they're a pretty feminine panty. Um, I paired it, uh, today, for this blouse and panty outfit, with a Laura Scott, Scott blouse. Um, these panties remind me why I love so much wearing ladies panties. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain."
    
Normally I avoid back seamed panties and would prefer my briefs to have a more generously cut mushroom shaped gusset, but the print won me over because to me it seemed so feminine.
    


Fbloggers OOTD and Lingerie Review Number 2 of 2: Warner's Modern Brief Panty in Vintage Pink:
    
    
     It took me a long time to decide which pair of briefs to style with the multi-coloured Alison Brittney chiffon floral ruffle hemmed top to complete my blouse and panty OOTD. I love everything about the Allison Brittney blouse. I also LOVE wearing these feminine vibrant vintage pink full brief nylon panties.
    
     I purchased the Warners No Pinching, No Problems Modern Brief Panty in Vintage Pink from HerRoom, and I purchased the Allison Brittney Women's Chiffon Floral Ruffle Top from Sears.
    
Quoting from Sears webpage about this Alison Brittney blouse:
"Let your look blossom in this sheer chiffon women's top from Allison Brittney. Medium-sized vibrant floral prints complement any skin tone in this easy-to-wear chiffon blouse that boasts smocked edging, puff sleeves and frilly ruffles down the front placket. Smocked round neckline Short smocked puff sleeves Ruffle front Smocked waist Peplum hem Woven construction Fabric: Polyester blend  Machine wash  Imported"

I love the chiffon floral peplum of the Alison Brittney women's puff sleeve top I styled with the Warners Vintage Pink nylon full briefs in this OOTD. This blouse also has some frilly feminine ruffles down the front. I love the length of the blouse which hits at my high hip.
    
TRANSCRIPT: "In this customer lingerie review I'm male-modeling a pair of Warners No Pinching No Problems No Muffin Top full brief panties in the colour 'Vintage Pink'. In this, uh,  lingerie review, I've styled this pair of panties with an Alison Brittney floral peplum top. I've previously reviewed this brand of panties. Um, they're very comfortable, and I love this colour. Um, as soon as I saw that colour, 'Vintage Pink', I knew I had to have them. Um, I wish I could find some more of them. Uh, they're a very pretty panty. Um, this customer lingerie review is released into the public domain. Please feel free to share it everywhere."
    
     Here's a link to my previous customer lingerie review of these briefs in a different colour on YouTube: MOV-Mister_Panty_Buns-models-and-reviews-Warners-Hibiscus-Petal-Pink-full-briefs-24.AVI. In that video I did a more detailed verbal description of the briefs and the feel.

Fbloggers Lingerie OOTDs and Reviews of Vanity Fair Ravissant Full Briefs


     THE WAY THE FABRIC OF A FULL BRIEF PANTY FEELS AGAINST MY SKIN and the way my panties fit are both extremely important to me. I love the feeling of wearing full coverage slippery soft nylon panties that both come up to my natural waist (around my belly button) and also have the elastic of the leg holes sit at the natural fold between my upper thigh and my bottom. The pair of Vanity Fair Ravissant briefs I'm reviewing today are a full coverage panty, have a satin sheen and a very slippery soft feel to them.
  
     Both the Ravissant and Lace Nouveau full briefs by Vanity Fair could stand to have a more generously cut gusset, especially near the rear seam. I would love these briefs a lot more than I do if the rear seam of the cotton lined gusset was higher, longer and had a significant curve to it the way most vintage briefs do and the way Vanity Fair briefs used to three decades ago. Unfortunately in most of the Vanity Fair briefs the rear seam of the gusset is sewn straight-across and is close to the same length as the front gusset seam. Most people are bigger in the back than in the front, so you would think briefs should be tailored that way instead making them in whatever way runs fastest through the sewing machines. Other than that one tailoring issue I love the VF Lingerie nylon full briefs.
  
     Apparently I'm not alone in loving how the Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Style 15712 full briefs look and feel either They are a former Undie Award winner. Speaking of the Undie Awards, on April 2nd Tomima Edmark of HerRoom did a new blog post titled: "Vote in the 8th Annual Undie Awards! | Tomima's Blog - Lingerie & Underwear Expert". You can vote for your favourites here. I'm conflicted. There are many different brands and styles I love but I haven't found the perfect panty yet.
  
      Whenever I see an opportunity to purchase, review and wear pretty new pairs of silky-soft and comfortable panties in the brands, styles, and colours I long to own in my size, I generally jump at it. I will often put aside any preferences I have for specific retailers in order to get a the panties I want so that I can slip into a pair as soon as is practical.  , it comes to purchasing a brand and style of full briefs I like in a colour and size I long to own, I will often put aside any preferences I have for specific retailers in order to get a the panties I want and slip a pair on as soon as is practical. At the time I bought them the Vanity Fair Style 15712 Classic Ravissant Full Brief Panty was shown as being available in Park Avenue Purple, Soft Blue and Midnight Black from Bare Necessities. I have previously purchased them in White and Soft Blue from HerRoom, in Black from Macy's, and in Fuchsia Applique from Kohls. Eons ago I had owned a pair of Ravissant briefs in the colour Potpourri Pink (swoon) and had also purchased Vanity Fair Lace Nouveau lace inset nylon panties in the colours Silk Rose and Fuchsia Shock from J C Penney. If only they were available in those colours again!
  
     UPDATE: I just tried to order some Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Tailored Brief Panties Style15712 from HerRoom in the colour "English Lilac", size 5 only to get the message: "English Lilac Not Manufactured in the selected size". I went ahead and ordered 2 pairs in size six even though I knew they'd be a bit large for me. I'm feeling very frustrated that I can't find briefs like these in my size in the colours like the ultra-feminine neon pink I love so much. Why don't lingerie companies make panties in the most feminine colours and available in all sizes?
  
     To contrast with and complement the pretty purple colour of these satiny nylon panties in my first lingerie fashion OOTD I styled them with a Style+Co Plus Size Short Sleeve Pleated Top in Neon Yellow from Macy's. To my eye there is almost enough of a hint of green in this neon yellow Style+Company top to make it closer to chartreuse yellow than it is to the neon yellow I was expecting when I ordered the blouse. What do you think of the colour of this blouse and the way it contrasts with the purple colour of the nylon full briefs in my blouse-and-panty-outfit of the day?

     Here is the customer lingerie review video I made and posted to my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/misterpantybuns, along with the description and transcript I published with the video: 
     
     
     
     
 
     

     
     
     
For some reason there was a lot of static noise in this video. I'm sorry about that.  This is the second time I've encountered this kind of noise in one of my lingerie OOTD videos. The other time was, coincidentally, during the review of a different pair of Vanity Fair Ravissant briefs in a similar purplish colour called 'Fuchsia Applique'. The colour of the pair of briefs I'm reviewing in this customer lingerie review video is Vanity Fair's 'Park Avenue Purple'. I think the colour of the Style and Company blouse in this outfit is actually a chartreuse yellow.  
     
TRANSCRIPT: "For this blouse and panty outfit of the day and customer lingerie review, I've chosen a blouse by Style and Company. Uh, the colour is described as 'Neon Yellow' but to me it seems to have a touch of green in it. The full brief panties that I'm reviewing are one of my favourites for sleeping in because they feel so wonderful against my skin. They're Vanity Fair's Perfectly Yours Ravissant Style 15712 full brief nylon panties. Um, the colour of this particular pair of panties is 'Park Avenue Purple'. Um, Vanity Fair often comes out with colours that I really love that are not on the shelf that long. The pretty ones seem to sell out really fast. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain. Please share it everywhere."  
     
     
     I purchased these purple Vanity Fair Ravissant briefs from Bare Necessities in size 6 and ordered the Style + company "Neon Yellow" Short-Sleeve Pleated Top from Macy's to style with and provide contrast in my blouse and panty outfit of the day. 
     
     I wasn't 100 percent sure about pairing these panties with the "Neon Yellow" blouse due to the hint of green in the blouse. Would you consider it a chartreuse yellow? WHAT DO YOU THINK of the purple colour, the sheen and fit of these panties and the colour combination in this blouse-and-panty Outfit Of The Day and how they look being modeled by me?  
     
     UPDATE number 2: (this post was written over a period of weeks) I ordered and just received those two pairs of  size 6 (one size larger than I wanted) Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant Tailored Brief Panties Style15712 from HerRoom in the colour English Lilac. The colour is pretty and looks to me to be in between lilac and lavender. I just couldn't resist showcasing them in photos and a video!  While looking for a blouse to pair for the lilac coloured panties I noticed that the colour was almost identical to the briefs I  wore in my "Outfit Post and Review: Hanes Her Way Women's Nylon Brief Panties ". I decided to style the Vanity Fair briefs with the same green Eyelash Ruffle Top from Dressbarn and compare both pairs of panties in a photo:   
     
img_Vanity_Fair_Ravissant-and-Hanes_Her_Way-nylon_briefs-side-by-side.jpg 

     
     
     
     
     You may be able to see the difference in the sheen of the panties. It is significant. While the Vanity Fair briefs are made of a superior fabric and have a higher rise (not a higher cut), the Hanes Her Way Women's Nylon Brief panties have a superior pattern from which the gusset and panels of the panty are tailored. You can see the more generous gusset having a curved rear seam on the Hanes panties and also observe more of a curvature on the cut of the rear panel. Hanes and Carole are tailored more like the vintage Maidenform and Vanity Fair full briefs used to be three decades ago.

     Please forgive me for the shakiness of the video in the beginning. My tripod setup was not the best. I didn't bother describing the blouse I styled in this OOTD because I had worn it with another outfit previously. For more detail on both the green eyelash ruffle blouse and the full coverage briefs, please visit my lingerie fashion and review blog at http://www.full-brief-panties.blogspot.com/ 
     
TRANSCRIPT:  "In this lingerie fashion outfit of the day and review I'm wearing a pair of Vanity Fair Perfectly Yours Ravissant full brief nylon panties in the colour English Lilac. The fabric of these panties feels heavenly against my skin. It's very slippery soft and smooth, um, and very comfortable This customer lingerie review video is released into the public domain. Please feel free to share it everywhere and republish it." 
     
     Do you see how similar in colour the Vanity Fair briefs in English Lilac are to the Hanes Her Way Women's Nylon Brief Panties
     
          It's hard to overstate how slippery soft and satiny these panties feel against my skin. They feel heavenly. Although there's still room for improvement in the tailoring, this particular brand and style of panties are still my favourite to wear to bed at night because of the comfort and luxurious feel of the fabric.

     A few side notes: I do NOT accept any kind of gifts or compensation. My blogging and reviews are done solely out of my love of full brief panties.

I don't take comments there but I would love to know what you think here in the comments below or on my Twitter where I am @Panty_Buns
     
     P.P.S.: Ultra-feminine neon pink is still my favourite colour for lingerie,but out of the two pairs of briefs reviewed above which colour panties do you think look prettier on me, the English Lilac or the Park Avenue Purple? I like the English Lilac but I think I might prefer the Tender Bud Print and Vintage pink of the briefs I plan to blog about next. Actually I know I love the Vintage Pink of the Warners briefs but I also prefer the feel of the Vanity Fair Ravissant. Why, oh why can't I have it all? 
     
     What do you think of the colour and tailoring, of these two pairs of Vanity Fair Ravissant full brief nylon panties, of how they fit and look on me? I'd love to know your thoughts.  
     Meanwhile I'll be wearing a pair of the Vanity Fair Ravissant Full Briefs to bed tonight and hopefully having some lovely lingerie dreams. 
     
      P.P.P.S.:  Please don't forget to leave your Fbloggers, Lbloggers and Bbloggers links to your blogs along with your comments below.  Thanks!    :D

Lingerie Fashion OOTD and Review of Carole Nylon Full Briefs with ros+ALI Daisy Print Poncho


     I often have difficulty deciding what colour of full brief panties will look best styled with which blouse. I love the daisy print of the ros+ALI Daisy Print Poncho I styled in this blouse and panty outfit of the day, but it turned out to be much darker and more reddish in colour than it looked when I viewed it on the Dressbarn website, so I wound up choosing a different, lighter coloured pair of briefs for the blouse and panty OOTD than the ones I had originally considered reviewing.
     After deciding to try styling the Daisy Print Poncho with briefs in a light blue or turquoise colour I had been planning to pair the top with a pair of Bettie Blue Full Cut Panties from Secrets In Lace. The fabric of the Bettie Blue Full Cut Panty is fabulous, having a nice sheen, a soft silky feel and I absolutely adore the rich vibrant colour. Unfortunately I ordered the panties in a size that is way, WAY too small for me, and them pair I received was not generously cut at all. If you order the Betty Blue Full Cut Panties from Secrets in Lace, I strongly recommend sizing upward. I did not send the pair I ordered back since it was I who failed to pay attention to the size chart. I had made the same mistake (not following the size guide) when ordering the lace trimmed Rago Shapewear Panty Brief I reviewed in an earlier post.
  
     Since there was no way I could do the review of the panties from Secrets in Lace I decided to review a pair of pale pastel blue style 3945 Carole Nylon Lace Trim Briefs from Bealls instead. Carole is also one of the brands in the collection of panties that Satin Rose Intimates offers to custom dye in "SRI blue, SRI pink and SRI yellow with available extra lace at the waist and/or legs". Custom orders take time and it would be important to me to make sure the briefs were the style with the softer nylon having a higher thread count rather than the somewhat more coarse style 845 Acetate briefs if I were going to place a custom order. I did order some custom dyed Shadowline full briefs from Satin Rose intimates which I will (hopefully) review in a future post, but chose to go ahead and do this review of and in the pale pastel blue Carole full brief nylon panties from Bealls. Both Shadowline and Carole full briefs run fairly large in sizing.
    
     Quoting from Dressbarn's webpage about the ros&ALI Plus Size Chiffon Daisy Print Poncho in Black/Pink which I styled with the Carole full brief panties:  
      
"Blush-tinted daisies almost seem to float down this airy chiffon top. Pleating at front of neckline only. Sheer chiffon poncho; opaque tank. Imported. Scoop neckline. Body lined with attached tank. 100% polyester. Machine Wash" 
     
     I love the daisy print and airy chiffon fabric of this poncho but I was a bit clumsy and unsuccessful trying to get the chiffon top aligned evenly over its opaque liner.

     Here is the customer lingerie review video I made and posted to my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/misterpantybuns, along with the description and transcript I published with the video: 
     
     
     
  
     
     
     The colour of the roz&ALI  chiffon Daisy Print Poncho I styled with these briefs was a lot darker than it looked online. It is made of a light chiffon with a black satin liner which is visible in the video where part of my blouse is hung up a little, but I decided the video showcased my outfit of the day well enough to go ahead and publish it anyway. I love the daisy print. I was initially going to pair it with Bettie Blue Full Cut Panty from Secrets In Lace in this OOTD and review but failed to read the sizing chart and ordered them in a size that was way, WAY too small for me. By contrast the Carole lace-trim briefs are quite large and roomy and are similar in sizing to Shadowline's Pants + Daywear Nylon Classic Brief Panties which I have also purchased but have yet to review. 
     
TRANSCRIPT: "In this customer lingerie review I'm reviewing some Carole brand full brief nylon panties. Um, Carole makes, uh two different styles that look very similar. They're both very full cut. Uh this is a size 6 and I could have easily fit into a size 5. They're very generously tailored, with a nice full gusset. Um, they have, Carole makes two different style, Style Numbers that look the same on the internet. One is an Acetate panty, uh Style Number 845, uh, and the other one is a nylon full brief panty, uh, Style Number 3945. The nylon panty feels wonderful. The Acetate panty, uh, the thread count is a little low and it could feel a little coarse against very sensitive skin. I'd recommend, uh the Style 34, the 3945. They come in assorted pastels. Um, they're fairly light in colouring. Um, I'd like, generally, to have my panties have a little more colour in them, but they're a very comfortable panty. Uh this, I've paired it today for this, with a Daisy Poncho from Dressbarn. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain."  
     
      I slept in a pair of the style 3945 Carole full brief nylon panties and found them to be very comfortable to wear in bed all night long. I also love the shape and generous tailoring of these panties with their full cotton-lined gusset. 
     
     Hopefully I'll get around to posting reviews of some of the other full brief panties I've purchased from HerRoom,  Freshpair, Bare Necessities, and Satin Rose Intimates recently, including (but not limited to): Vanity Fair Lingerie, Bali Intimates, Warner's, and Shadowline Lingerie. I'm also thinking of reordering briefs from Secrets in Lace and Rago Shapewear in larger sizes than I did last time.

Lbloggers Fbloggers OOTD and Review of Elomi Valentina Heart-Print Nylon Briefs


     Normally I try to avoid buying panties which don't have enough of a rise to come at least close to the natural waist, but the red heart print on this black size L EL8405 Elomi Valentina Brief was so pretty that I just couldn't resist buying and reviewing them. I decided to style these knickers with an American Rag short-sleeve lace-trim top in the colour '"Yellow Combo" from Macy's in order to provide a nice complementary colour contrast for my lingerie fashion OOTD and review. I purchased the Elomi Valentina heart print nylon briefs from Freshpair. Unfortunately while I was typing this post I noticed that the Elomi Valentina Brief from Freshpair (where I bought them) is currently being shown as no longer available. I do see that there are still a number of other Elomi Panty styles available for purchase there. The Elomi Valentina Brief is also showing as no longer currently available at HerRoom or at Bare Necessities either. You can check out the Latest Collections from Elomi Lingerie here (link to Elomi's site). The delightful pair of red on black heart print Elomi Valentina Briefs I ordered from  Freshpair arrived promptly and I'm very happy to have received them before they were all sold out. It's too bad they're not widely available right now. I think these panties are perfect for Valentine's Day. The Elomi website (link): Elomi Lingerie - beautiful lingerie for the fuller figure.
     The yellow blouse I chose to complement and contrast with the Elomi Valentina Brief Panties in my OOTD and review is an American Rag Plus Size Short Sleeve Top with Lace-Trim in Neon Yellow from Macy's.

TRANSCRIPT: "As you can see, the pair of ladies panties that I'm male-modeling and reviewing in this lingerie review video, have a pretty heart print. It's aptly named Elomi's Valentina Brief. The fabric has a wonderful slippery soft feel. Um, they don't come up to the natural waist, but they're a very pretty panty. I've paired it, uh today, with a uh, an American Rag blouse, for, to complete my blouse and panty outfit for this review. This customer lingerie review video is released into the public domain. Please share it everywhere."  
     
          
You can check out the Latest Collections from Elomi Lingerie here (link to Elomi's site). I like the look of the Elomi Betty Raspberry Brief from the front but they look like the coverage is slightly less than full in back viewing the Elomi Betty Brief on HerRoom's site. The Elomi Amelia Brief in the image at HerRoom appears to have more complete coverage and is high cut but the fabric is listed as a nylon spandex and cotton blend. 
     As I noted earlier in this post, there are a number of Elomi Panty styles available at Freshpair in addition to many full coverage briefs. I have yet to make an in person appearance to participate in Freshpair's National Underwear Day (which I blogged about in my post titled" National Underwear Day 2013, Lingerie Fashion, Briefs in News and Blogs), or to look into participating in Freshpair's Confidence Project by taking the first step and filling out their secure their secure form. I wonder whether someday I might be seen being interviewed in one of the videos on Freshpair's YouTube Channel. I promised I'd Tweet them @Freshpair on Twitter when I uploaded a new video. It's time to tweet!

Lbloggers Fbloggers OOTD and Review of Maidenform Flexees Shapewear Panty Briefs


 At one time Maidenform made and sold a wider selection of classic women's full brief nylon underpants than they do today. Maidenform full brief nylon panties had a very generous full mushroom shaped cotton lined gusset. The large curved rear seam of the gusset rose fairly high. I considered it to be a delightful design feature. The classically tailored vintage Maidenform briefs had some shape and were designed for real women, not toothpick-thin models. You can see how pretty this design feature was in my post titled "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams". These briefs used to come in a variety of colours including a gorgeous vibrant feminine pink. By the time I wrote the post "Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 2" Maidenform's Tricot Full briefs were getting harder and harder to come by, the rear seam of the gusset was closer to being straight across, and the colour selection was sparse. Now it seems the only full briefs Maidenform is making are the Flexees Shaper Panties I'm seen modeling and reviewing in this post. Now that Maidenform has been acquired by Hanes Brands I'm hoping the more traditional briefs will regain some attention.
  
     It only occurred to me after I noticed how pretty this pair of Magenta Maidenform Flexees shapewear panties looks on me in the photographs below, that perhaps the title of this post should have been Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 3 and be a sequel to my earlier posts.
  
     My lingerie fashionista blouse and panty outfit of the day: A pair of Maidenform Flexees Weightless Comfort Briefs Style 2564 in "Magenta Me Crazy" from Bare Necessities styled with a Jaclyn Smith Women's Plus Floral Ruffle Top in Brooke Green from Kmart
  

Quoting from Kmart's webpage about the blouse I styled in this outfit:
"Liven up your look with the energetic style of this women's plus top by Jaclyn Smith. This silky shirt features a floral graphic and flutters with rows of eyelash ruffles, jazzing up any casual outfit with fashionable flair. Short sleeves and a V-neckline make it ideal for showing off your favorite jewelry."

img_Panty_Buns-male-modeling-Maidenform-Flexees-magenta-nylon-full_brief-panties.jpg 
     
     
     
      
 
       
I bought the Jaclyn Smith women's plus floral ruffle top in Brook Green that I styled with these Maidenform Flexees briefs for my blouse and panty OOTD from Kmart and purchased the Flexees Weightless Comfort Brief 2564 in the colour "Magenta Me Crazy" from Bare Necessities. 
     
TRANSCRIPT: "The pair of ladies full brief panties that I'm male-modeling in this customer lingerie review video is a Maidenform Flexees Shape Panty. Um I bought it primarily because of the colour. It's very pretty, and the name made me laugh. It's 'Magenta Me Crazy'. Uh, for this video I've paired this pair of panties with a ruffle blouse, a floral ruffle blouse in green from Jaclyn Smith. Um, this pair of Maidenform Flexees panties is, has laser cut leg holes, the idea being, that it wouldn't leave a panty line. it also has a back seam which gives the initial impression that they're sheer when in fact they're not. They're uh, an opaque panty. Um, the back seam does give some shape to the panty. Uh, to me it feels like they're riding up. I prefer to have uh, an, I prefer to have elastic at the leg holes to help hold them in place and prevent ride-up, um, and I'm not concerned about the panty lines. This customer lingerie review is released into the public domain."  
     
     Watching the customer video lingerie review of this pair of Maidenform Flexees shaper panties they appear to fit me much better than I realized when I was making the video review. Perhaps I should have worn them all day long to see whether or not they would actually ride up or whether they might stay put and continue to look pretty. It could have been that I'm just not used to wearing fitted back-seam panties with no elastic at the leg holes. The fabric felt good against my skin and I LOVE the colour!  
     
     Those who follow me or read my reviews regularly probably already know that I like having panty lines and the underwear as outerwear look, whereas these briefs seem intended to make it appear like no underwear is being worn at all. 
     
     How do you feel about briefs with back seams and forgoing elastic at the leg holes in favour of having no discernible panty lines? 
     
     What do you think of the "Magenta Me Crazy" colour of the pair of ladies briefs I'm seen modeling and reviewing here? 

     Do you like the look of the Jaclyn Smith women's plus floral ruffle top in Brook Green I styled with these shaper panties to complete my outfit of the day? 

     Are these magenta Maidenform Flexees shaper panty briefs pretty enough that I can keep my male-modeling Maidenform dreams alive? 
     
     If you don't already know what my male-modeling Maidenform dreams were you can read about them at the beginning of my earlier posts titled: Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams and Male-Modeling Maidenform Dreams Part 2. You can see the earlier customer lingerie review videos of Maidenform briefs embedded in those posts or see them on my YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/misterpantybuns/videos

Lbloggers Fbloggers OOTD and Review of Rago Shapewear Panty Brief with Lace


     In the customer lingerie video I made to go with this post I expressed my pleasure with this pair of Rago Shapewear panty briefs.  The next time I order some of these briefs, however, I'll follow the recommended sizing for more comfort when wearing them all day long. The pair of Rago Shapewear Panty Briefs I wore with this outfit were WAY too tight - so tight that they don't appear nearly as attractive in the lingerie review video as they otherwise might have looked if I had purchased the correct size for myself.
    
     The Rago Shaper Panty Brief With Lace Style 919, which I purchased from HerRoom, is a true full coverage brief having classic vintage style tailoring. The briefs have 9 1/2 inch side-seams, a 10 inch rise, and a cotton lined gusset. I love the retro styling of these briefs, and the stretch lace insets add a nice feminine touch. To complete my lingerie fashionista (Lbloggers) outfit of the day I paired the Rago Shapewear black lace-trim shaper briefs with a contrasting Elementz Women's Plus-Size Three-Quarter-Sleeve Sequined Eyelash Ruffle Top in Soft Candle Yellow from Macy's.
    
     I took this first photo of the black Rago shapewear brief shortly after making the YouTube video. In retrospect I should have either taken the photos of my different outfits just before I posed in them for the OOTD photos and videotaped lingerie reviews, or else delayed photographing the separate briefs and blouses until after I'd washed them the next day. Unfortunately some of the white body powder I use clung to the stitching around the leg holes of the black panty brief and is visible in the first photo. Oops! Oh well. I'm too lazy to take another photo of them and will simply leave that photo in this post as a blooper-pic.: 
     
      
     
img_Rago-briefs-with-Elementz-sequin-eyelash-ruffle-blouse.jpg 
     
     
     The classic design of these panty briefs with their mushroom-shaped gusset is more easily visible is more visible in this photo:

     In this next image there appears to be a white tag showing under the hemline of my eyelash ruffle blouse. Another blooper pic.:  
     
     
img_Panty_Buns-male-modeling-Rago-shapewear-nylon-full_briefs.jpg 
     
 
     
     
      I misspoke in this video - the colour of the Elementz ruffle sequin top, which I bought from Macy's and styled in this OOTD, is named "Soft Candle". I happened to buy the Rago Style 919 Shaper Panty Brief from HerRoom but it is available from other retailers as well. It would have showcased the vintage look, and retro-style tailoring of these panty briefs much better had I purchased a larger size.  
     
TRANSCRIPT: "In this customer lingerie review I'm male-modeling a Rago Shapewear black shaper panty brief with lace. I've styled it with a sequined eyelash ruffle blouse by Elementz in the colour Yellow Candle. Uh, this Rago Shaper Panty uh has a nice slippery feel in the front. Um, it's got good control and is very nicely tailored, full cut with a classic style. Um, I deliberately got it a size smaller than I should, uh, to see whether it had enough give, um and, plus I like wearing my panties tight. Um, I'm very happy with them, with this pair of panties. Uh, this customer lingerie review is released into the public domain."  
     
     On Rago's website, the fabric of the RAGO Style 919 - Light Shaping Panty Brief is listed as being made of 85% Nylon, 15% invista Lycra. The colours currently listed  on Rago's site are White, Beige, Black, Pink and Red.  
     
     Rago makes high waisted shapewear panties as well which have a waist-cinching effect. As you can see in my customer lingerie review video I could use some shaping of my quite out-of-shape waistline.
