Garters N' Things
November 30, 2012 3:59 AM   Subscribe

I like reading blogs containing tips and general info on wearing petticoats, garters, different kinds of slips, tights, of course bra styles, and other such articles of clothing. Help me find them?

The few blog posts I've read about this stuff make me actually interested in putting effort into wearing girly things. And I feel more...connected? with my womanhood in general.
Anyway, I'm looking for blog posts and articles about these things. How to wear them, what to wear them with, the health of wearing certain fabrics, experiences wearing some of these.....everything.

Can you help me out?

Fran makes corsets and has a blog.

It's not a blog but the forums at What Katie Did (who design and sell retro/vintage style lingerie in the UK) are filled with useful threads about that sort of thing and are generally where I resort to searching when I need that info.

American Duchess covers some of that from a historical costuming perspective.
