Cherry Brady explains all about this boner-making bra and girdle photo shoot. Thank you, Cherry. We always want to learn. "The bra is a size 36G and is manufactured by Simone II. The girdle's manufacturer is Rago. I bought them both on-line a couple of years ago at underworks.com. I see they still carry the items, but are in their Specials/Clearance section. They have a lot of utilitarian-looking stuff there. I don't think it's on purpose; they just seem to specialize in good, sturdy support items...which tend to look matronly. But matronly/utilitarian looks retro to me. And besides, how could I resist a front closing, 12 hook, non-underwire bra? And what about a 6 garter, back zipping girdle? I shouldn't be expected to restrain myself from purchasing treasures like that! I might not even wear that bra except for once a year, but I have it! These rare bra styles are like fine china, used and cherished only once or twice a year and put up for safekeeping the rest of the year. I never take a good bra for granted. No doubt about it - that's my favorite layout so far!
