I had to find out more about Bordelle, the label that gave birth to my elastic cage corset which I’m quite willing to give up Ferrero Rocher for in order not to *ahem* bulge out of with the pudgy fat rolls (some of you mentioned about having some…trust me… I have them too…).  Andrew Ibi, the owner of The Convenience Store where I bought the beautiful Bordelle piece did promise an even more impressive S/S 09 collection where by definition, it makes the full crossover from lingerie to bodywear.  Herve Leger-type bandages gets warped a little so that there are gaps in between… I’m picturing a juicy shade of peach peeking through… not to add to the sexual innuendo or anything…I just happen to really like that colour…


Criss cross elastic corsets, chiffon ruching running up latex leggings and harlequin lambskin sectioned leggings.  I can think of more than one or two bloggers who could pull these off with effortless aplomb…



Going back to the issue of bulging rolls though, unlike the model here, if I indulged in another piece of Bordelle,  of course a bit of grey jersey or worn down cotton would be going underneath the corsets/basques (thank the lord for industrial strength elastic…), and thus lessens the roll issue.  I am speaking from experience as on the day after Boxing Day, I put mine on and in the mirror miraculously, evidence of my Crimbo pork-out (no less than FOUR different roast meats within a three day period goddamnit…) suddenly ceased to exist…

    What stunning pieces, high octane sexyness! I just bought some wide elastic from the haberdashery & this just gave me a cracking DIY idea, I’m sure it won’t come out looking as fab as this lot but one will try ones hardest!

    Oh wow. Although is it just me or does that model look like Ashlee Simpson?

  3. SOS! says:

    I remember your corset, and you look amazing in it. These pieces are very unique,but I think I might need to tone up my tumtums inorder to pull these off (with the holes in em, some meat might buldge through….not good.)

    dont worry, im know for a fact that i would have 7 or 8 lovehandles poking out of the sides of that first dress!
    i dont suppose i could hide tum control pants underneath?

  5. they are ridiculously ingenious! x

  6. These are amazing – so sexy!
    I feel for you with the roast-meat overload – I’ve never had so much turkey in my life.

    Susie you are so insanely well informed and full of brilliantness. Er, brilliance.

  9. A little more chic than Trinny & Susannah brand control pants!

    That corset looks great on you, I would definitely feel trussed for the oven in all those ribbons though.

    That white corset is amazing!!!

    Curse my fat rolls! I’m not going to look at anything Leger-ish until New Years, when I start exercising again ;).

  13. deana says:

  14. Melissa says:

    ooooo i’d LOVE to see some photos of you in your shu falsies!!!!

  15. I LOVE the first and last pieces. They really are dead on bloody brilliant. Extremely seductive and interesting. Love you Susie<3
    + Funny thing is I found your blog on U.O. a while, WHILE back and have been following it ever since. Strangely enough I haven't commented enough. I should be swatted T.T

    How much is the corset by the way? I can only dream…

  17. That first dress is out of this universe and only look right on someone on their way to a bondage party.

  18. Would that we all could pull this one off without some serious fashion gymnastics…

  19. Wow. Absolutely stunning. I guess I’ll probably have to make a trip to London get my hand on these.

  20. These garments are beautiful, i’d be too scared to wear it after my christmas day meal (I had about 3 helpings!). It’s so annoying when the model wearing it looks absolutely stunning, you looked great in yours too. Loved the tee you put under it.

  21. I am completely infatuation with these images. Of course I have the completely wrong body type for something like this, but I can definitely see myself wearing something body appropriate and cagey.

  22. emily says:

    i really enjoyed ur blog. this entry kind of reminds me of an herve leger piece in WSJ. haha these stuff’z not for normal people…

  23. ashleigh says:

    you and your blog rock! I haven’t needed to scroll down in a bit and was just navigating to other blogs from your page… long story short, I noticed that you are taking link submissions and would love if you could link to me, I want to increase traffic to my page. Thanks!

  24. that white piece is pretty mind blowing.

  25. Sunset says:

    I would think this is so not Susie (no offense intended, I mean it’s hard to see anyone be able to wear it without looking skankilicious right?) but after seeing you totally incorporate that cage corset into your wardrobe, you can do anything! Man Bordelle is so amazing.

  26. Ritzzz says:

    i got the bod to wear that

  27. Daiane says:

    wow, all these pieces are amazing and quite well styled also! have a happy new year and keep up your articles being so damn good in 2009 too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo

  28. kim says:

    #1 is gorgeous. But to be honest I’d probably only dare to wear it in the bedroom (but that might just be worth it already ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  29. Wax says:

    Fierce and ferosh!

  30. Pratishtha says:

    Love handles! no, i think it would be more like car tyres piled 5 feet 7 inches high. That’s me. The styling reminds me of Kill Bill somehow.

  31. I need these corsets now!

  32. DJM says:

    Oh my gosh, this is AMAZING! I do love elastic strapping.

  33. jennine says:

    more ribbons please!

  34. Latexlilly says:

    Er, a friendly word of advice: it takes plenty of talcum powder or a specialist lubricant (pjurr cult) merely to squeeze into latex leggings. Needless to say, neither goes well with chiffon. And I haven’t even mentioned the indispensible latex shine yet… Love the bondage dress though!

  35. I love that first dress—I even love it more than the Herve Leger bandage dresses that they mimic.

  36. songy says:

    I don’t know if you’re too young to know the movie the Fifth Element. Jovovich was wearing something like that in the movie.. now we are talking wearing that for real..

  37. Helen-LG says:

    God the top one is gorgeous!
    However I am weak-willed when it comes to the treats or working them off at the gym, so it’s probably never going to be an option for me.. If only wishing made it so though, that first one is stunning!

  38. If you leave me, please don’t comfort me because each sewing has to meet stinging pain.
