Trashy Lingerie’s ‘Bam Bam’ bra and bottom. This style from Hollywood institution Trashy Lingerie was on my wish list for a long time. I’ve had this for about 8 years and the style existed looonnng before the current trend in lingerie for all things strappy and cut-out. I have a soft spot for Trashy. They made my first corset (custom waist cincher) on my first trip to the US when I was 17 and as I’m a huge fan of ‘character dressing’ or ‘situational dressing- as my stylist friend Tara and I call it- their themed collections tick all my boxes (‘Stepford’ is a fave!). They also make everything by order- they have their styles and you pick the fabric- and sew it on premises. I chose a dark, hunter green velvet for Bam Bam for a Poison Ivy vibe. The underwire, halter bra exceeded expectations. It’s comfortable. It’s supportive. It gives good-but not crazy- cleavage without any padding (in fact the cut-outs are where that would usually be). It looks bloody amazing. Hooks at the back and at the neck, both in a variety of lengths as per usual bra. So as I bought a Medium for the cup, I can just hook it on the tightest and it fits like my regular 32d. The velvet is also a thick, quality one, not a cheap stretch one. The thong bottom I am divided on. It’s VERY high cut, even by the standards of yours truly (LOVE a high cut), very 80s/90s style as I’m sure that’s when the pattern itself was cut. I think I can just barely pull it off due to being tall and having a long torso. The shape and style I love and as that velvet is non stretch you can imagine the design problems of being able to make it fit. Trashy’s solution was adjustable garter like straps on the hips which I’m not a fan of aesthetically but not only does it solve the non-stretch problem it provides a little burlesque-y raunch factor, which I do think is hot! I do wish the bottom was different though. The large silver clips bug me. All in all well-made with quality fabrics, best cut halter I’ve ever found in regards to shape, comfort and support and incredibly original design. Also, remember you can have it made in any fabric or color you like in the Trashy arsenal! 7/10.

"I don’t really like people, but it’s difficult to get comfortable with loneliness. I mean, I’ve tried to have friends, but it never works out. And I’m tired of going out alone. I’m ok staying in at my place. It smells good when I burn incense and I have a lot of records and I can just play video games.” The bus she was waiting for arrived. “Do you need to go?” "It’s ok. Another one will come in ten minutes… But then, you know, sometimes I just want a partner— a relationship. It would be nice to share this part of my life with someone. I’ve been single for years, and you know, there are people I could call if I wanted to. But people always end up saying things that rub me the wrong way, or if I open up to them, suddenly they want me to be their best friend, and I don’t want people to have expectations of me. I don’t want to waste anyone else’s time if I’m not interested in being close to them." Another bus came and went while she told me about the loneliness, wiping tears from her eyes. Then another. “I’m sorry, I’ve talked too long.” "It’s really ok. Sometimes we just need to connect." "Yeah, I forget that sometimes."
