Just Did It!
So, as expected, basques were hard to find. Shopping was good, it was early so the shops were quiet, all the time looking through the lingerie I could feel the tiny knickers I was wearing. I'm now sitting here writing in matching set of black satin, lace and ribbon bra and knickers, and I'm very pleased with the cherry red waist cincher in satin and lace. It feels great, really tight against my body, and surely the next best thing to a basque, well with a bra on it has the same feel. I keep running my hands up and down it, adjusting it slightly, I'll be wearing it for the rest of the day for sure!
