Experimenting with Fashion

(as Sarah put it - "a little more voluptuous vs your usually sweet/sassy")  "Sassy" or "Voluptuous" - you choose Now, I usually wear more flowing materials. But with this Body Con style, I need some, rather "industrial strength" foundation garments to keep everything in place.  In fact, I end up wearing more Spandex than the whole cast of A CHORUS LINE.
