What Lies Beneath My Pretty Dress!!

January 21, 2019

All For One and One For All!

I joined the Top of the World linkup party!

I also joined A Pocketful of Polkadots linkup party!

Be warned that I am going to be in underwear in the following article, so if that offends you then stop reading now!

As I continue on my road to recovery from breast cancer I wish to share my experience through the process of healing.

I wish to talk about the tools I am using to heal not only my body but my mind and spirit as well.

No matter my age or circumstances, I’ve always felt more comfortable within myself when I wear sensuous pretties under my clothing.

Now more than ever this is something I feel most strongly about!

I wore this bodysuit under a gorgeous boho style wrap dress.

In my experience, a bodysuit is perfect under such dresses and just makes me feel more pulled together!

The idea was to keep the dress sitting flat against my skin and not cut in where the ties wrap around my waist.

Lace Me Up!

The beautiful lacy details on the front panels are delicate and fine and I love how they make me feel sensual and comfortable in my own body.

Feminine and very silky smooth against my delicate, soft skin, which seems to have become more sensitive during this recent health issue.

The design of the bodysuit also enhances my womanly shape with nice panelling on the waist.

There’s the usual snap fastening to allow for quick and easy pit-stops!!! πŸ˜‰

The neckline of the bodysuit is flattering with a pretty scalloped edge moving up to adjustable straps.

The lace is black over cream satin, which adds effective interest and detail.

How it Stands up …

Necklining it!

How pretty is the wide neckline and the lace around the top of the thighs?

Sensuality is not only for the young!

Feminist and Feminine!!

I was going through my WordPress Reader the other day and found a blog that seemed interesting with some nice poetry until I came across the part that talked about mature women, menopausal women and basically any women who weren’t teenagers as past it!!

Talk about putting a low premium on the metaphysical, the spiritual and making it all about young, very young, bodies giving this man pleasure.

There may be nothing wrong with that, but it really hit me hard!! Really hard!!

Here I am, with my personal beliefs about the brain being the most erotic organ of the body, and thinking in terms of raising my vibration above the physical and yet there are still many men – and these guys aren’t young – who only think about the base, the pedestrian and more than likely their own pleasure without connection.

I am grateful that is not the man that I have in my life!

The other thing that is so irritating about this train of thought of such men is the utter denial that men age too and often experience difficulties regarding performance in the bedroom!!

Just think about that for a moment …. you’re not always hearing about these old impotent men are you?

Maturity and Decency

I’m talking about this because I’ve found my voice and I want other women to find theirs and embrace their own value no matter what narrative our society tries to feed us.

As my mother used to say, “Don’t you let any man or any person tell you who you are and what you’re worth!”

Thank you, Mum!

I know that so many of you know that with age comes much knowledge, compassion, humour, courage, wisdom and grace.

These are my values: not just a young, muscly, fit, hard body!

Anyway, let’s move on!!

Even before I had breast cancer it was my thought that sex appeal starts in the mind and that the brain is the sexiest organ!!

It’s what you know about yourself but that others know nothing… the enigmatic part of our inner selves.

It’s the beautiful energy that we put out that’s important to others and ourselves as we key into nature and the beauty all around us!

We mature women, with our lumps and bumps and imperfections here and there need to embrace our inner goddess because so many of us have worked all of our lives to make a difference to others and their lives and now it is our time to do it for ourselves.

I enjoyed sharing my thoughts and feelings about beauty, ageing and sensuality and would love to hear what you think about that which has been raised here today!

    You are all inspiring, love the post and agree with you 100% especially when you talk about men not seeing themselves as ageing and your thoughts around sensuality. You look absolutely gorgeous in the underwear and you wear it with total confidence. Thank you for writing a great post.

      Thank you for your kind comment – I do tend to confront things I have to say! I’ve reached an age and have had enough go down in my life that I’m feeling good about being able to express some truths I’ve known for a long time in regard to men … and I’m going to stop hiding the body that has served me well when I haven’t given it the love it deserved. Anyway, enjoy your weekend and again thanks for the nice comment! Donna πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™
