Lingerie question  
OK, firstly, finding pics of this kind of stuff that give a good view of the item but are not X-rated is not so easy.

Secondly... anyone knowing what said stuff is called? It's not really a corset, it's not really a belt, it's an in-between. In French, it's a "serre-taille", but obviously, I'd need the English word for it :-p

Est-ce que cela pourrait être ça : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist_cincher ?

Je t'aime ♥
En général, je suis un peu plus débrouillarde que ça pour trouver ce genre d'infos, mais il faut croire qu'aujourd'hui...

Il faut peut-être aussi croire que j'avais fait une recherche il y a peu de temps sur le différent nom des pièces de lingerie en anglais alors que je lisais une fic ^^

I think this is what we English refer to as a 'waspie'...not sure why!

Hope this helps, dear.

*waves* Thanks, Foxy! So apparently, you can call it either a waist cincher or a waspie... Waspie sounds more fun, though ^_^

I think this is what we English refer to as a 'waspie'...not sure why!
Waspie... wasp...? Over here, having a waist like a wasp's is having a really small/thin waist, and Wikipedia says that 'wasp waist' refers to a silhouette, so 'waspie' makes sense for me.

*waves back* Glad I could help!

And thinking about a wasp, it's body is in two segments and the 'waist' part is extremely thin so yes, it does make sense!

I'm back from my little break and starting to catch up...slowly!!

Hope you had a great Bastille Day, sweetheart!

I hope you had a nice holiday.

Bastille Day was on a Tuesday. I didn't work on the Monday. I had a four day weekend. Which was kinda nice :-p

Happy catching up ;)

It was a nice little break, sweetheart. Old houses and the like! :)

A four day weekend should happen every weekend, shouldn't it?!! But glad it was good.
