Love me tender, Kiss Me Deadly

This wicked little ensemble from British company Kiss Me Deadly is from a collection known as the Van Mimi, pieces inspired by '50s haute couture. Each gorgeous Van Mimi piece features the sort of elements that make a dame -- and her dude -- daffy with delight, including eyelash and floral lace, satin, and velvet ribbon.

The marvelous midi bra and the lovely lace-skirted basque have
underwire, lined lace cups with padded satin sides and velvet ribbon trim. The basque also has the waist-shaping reinforcement of plastic boning plus six detachable suspender straps.

The matching deep suspender belt also has six wide straps and a center non-stretch panel crisscrossed with the same velvety ribbon. Any seasoned stocking-wearer knows, six straps are so much better for keeping those otherwise sauntering seamed stockings straight. There's also a matching lace brief and thong with delectable details at the, um, bum.

Kiss Me Deadly offers a sumptuous short-sleeved lace bolero, which looks as luscious on the town as in one's boudoir.

The Van Mimi is a limited edition collection, as are quite a few Kiss Me Deadly designs. But don't fret, my dears. If you can't score these delights in your size, there is an abundance of other collections to sate your
haute hunger.

For the record, most sets come in sizes S, M, L and XL, 32-36 B-DD and 38C-DD.

Honestly, Kiss Me Deadly has so many killer goodies, a gal could spend hours -- and a small fortune.

Kiss Me Deadly website will also give links to sites that offer its garments as well as the location of the bricks and mortar shops. Sadly, there is only a few in the states. But as we say, hope springs ...
