Happy Monday Swimwear and Lingerie fiends!

Today’s topic is all about what could/ should be.

If wishes were kisses I'd have even more lingerie... wait, does that make sense?

For example, I used to always want to have red hair {bit of an Anne of Green Gables fanatic back in the day}.

Red hair..sigh, a bottle never gave me that colour!

I would wash my hair with strawberries {no discernible change thank you very much Angie Everhart you collosal liar!},

Angie Everhart: She credited her locks to strawberries... and genetics... I had one of the two available, so I mushed entire fields of strawberries into my head.

henna {helllo pylon orange! Always a sexy color and one that doesn’t discriminate between hair, scalp, neck, back, forehead, ears… you get the idea}

Not me, but not a bad likeness either!

and those colouring shampoos… Halsa, I think they were called? Yah, they did less than nothing.

Beware the lies!

Beware the lies!

Sadly, they just played with my willingness to be duped and then tromped all over my ginger dreams.

Aren't ya glad I got over it?

But I’ve always been enamored with red hair, regardless of my inability to grow it.

To that end, I’ve dyed it repeatedly, only to find out that maintaining a head full of hair that is very different from your natural shade, is both time consuming and expensive.

When the roots are visible you can tell it's not natural... although, it may be obvious no matter what sometimes!

So, basically I pine from afar. I do the same thing with lingerie.

There are certain types of lingerie that I adore, but I do realize that they just don’t work with my body type or even come in my bust size.

For example, I love the way that bralets and panty sets look.

Sigh... so pretty.

Sigh... so pretty.

A sweet soft triangle bralet or bandeau bralet. They just look so pretty and cute. But they most certainly don’t come in a 38 GG and if they did, I imagine they would require a whole lotta bungee cords to keep the back part of the band down and the boobs up.

Another one is ANYTHING with spaghetti straps. GG cups do not lend themselves to delicate dental floss type straps.

Basically, my shoulders would look like a tied sausage link if I tried to wear something with spaghetti straps {believe me, it’s true…. I’ve tried. Repeatedly. Actually, my willingness to re-attempt failed previous attempts is almost legendary and awe-inspiring}.

Not a very appealing look at all!

I have yet to find anything in an empire waist that works with my figure or comes in my size. I think it’s pretty safe to say that the majority of my lingerie wishes are basically the grass is greener mentality of those without huge bazongas.

Ahhh, but is it really????

Which is rather strange when you think about it. Because I try to be body positive and really promote acceptance of your natural body type and shape and not play into or over emphasize anything that our society is currently pushing as the ideal.

Boooo, why ya gotta be like that?

{Bad Maggie! Bad, bad, bad!}

Hold on now… easy there! I’m also human and who hasn’t wanted to change one or two things now and then. Heck I even wanted a lower rib removed, so I could have a more defined waist… Seriously, I really did. I thought that would make my figure more like the Victorial Secrets ladies…

That would be quite a price to pay for supposed beauty wouldn't it?

{because THAT was all that was holding me back! That pesky rib… not my puny, diminutive height, inability to smile at a camera without making a dorky face or unwillingness to not get a tattoo that would be visible in scanty types of lingerie}

Megan Fox has visible tattoos!

Don’t worry, I realized how stupid that was fairly quickly. After all, protecting your essential inner organs is a kinda important function of that rib cage and it’s served me well all these years.

But I started to think that perhaps I can’t get those styles in my size because they aren’t being made, because designers just don’t realize that curvy girls like to look delicate now and then too!

Fluvia Lacerda wants it too!

So I thought I would start us off with my list of Lingerie Wishes and that you guys could join in too.

Never hurts to put it out there and let all those wickedly fabulous lingerie designers try their hands at making something that could work with my larger bust size and still be comfortable and give off that same ethereal quality I really crave!

Hopeless Lingerie: want in my size and to actually stay put on my frame!

It could work for you too! So, let me know, what have you always wished you could wear and why can’t/don’t you?

What would you like to see someday as the answer to your lingerie dreams?

Don't make me pull out the Uber-Creepy Lingerie Fairy to pry it out of you!

Don't make me pull out the Uber-Creepy Lingerie Fairy to pry it out of you!

Don’t waste your time wishing on a star, speak up and be heard and maybe, just maybe our dreams will come true.

Ick, that was waaaay tooo Disney for me! Scratch that fluff. Speak up because well behaved women never made history!

What did YOU think she was wearing under that little dress?
