Reading in Lingerie | The Nympho and Other Maniacs

If you’ve seen the first edition of Reading in Lingerie you’ll know I have a thing for reading a good book in my smalls. There’s something so luxurious about lounging in lingerie. Like you have all the time in the world to absorb every word on the page, and that someone should be feeding you peeled grapes.

So here’s the second edition, featuring a rather striking pair of Undercover backseam stockings by Voodoo and some titillating non fiction entitled ‘The Nympho and Other Maniacs‘. Author Irving Wallace ( who started as a Hollywood screenwriter in the ’50s ) penned the scandalous stories of more than 30 women who defied the social standards of their times, publishing it in 1971.

Like most of my self-styled shoots, this is not your typical cheesecake pinup. But it is pure Velvety goodness.

The Outfit

Inspired by 1930’s Parisian postcards this fashion story is all about texture.
A ribbed t-shirt with sheer stockings, soft flesh dented by chunky garters, just the right balance of skin revealed and hidden.
Wetset pin curls are pinned to create a faux bob hairstyle, while makeup is softly smudged and smokey.

PS: Voodoo don’t pay me or give me stockings, I just really like the triangular seam detail on this pair!
