Colour It Red …

Lingerie has always been Frank’s ‘thing’ … that being lingerie on me ;>) …Ā  on our very first Christmas spent together, at his new apartment, instead of finding a Christmas stocking hung up for me on Christmas morning, I awoke to 3 or 4 pairs of bikini underwear pinned to the closet door … the red ones front and centre. At the time red was what you bought when you wanted ‘sexy’ lingerie. When you consider what he would have had to do to buy said underwear, it was pretty remarkable … he would have been just 23 yrs old and the only place to buy women’s undergarments was the department store … what 23 yr old man, even today, would be comfortable tromping through a lingerie department. However, I’ve just found out now, in asking him about it (yes, amazingly, he remembers … lol!) … that he took my girlfriend with him … the things you find out when you think to ask :>)) …

My lingerie collection has grown extensively over the years … I have at least 4 drawers full … underwear, bras, corsets, teddies, hosiery of all types, garter belts, cosplay … you name it … I probably have it. These days there isn’t much in red other than a couple of favourite red bras and underwear, as the colour seems to have gone out of fashion. However, red remains Frank’s favourite lingerie colour and as a tribute to his love of red, here’s his favourite ‘red’ song, which we’ve danced to many times …

The Lady in Red
by Chris de Burgh

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
And I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me
It's where I want to be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
And I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me
It's where I want to be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight

I never will forget the way you look tonight
The lady in red, the lady in red
The lady in red, my lady in red

    I kind of wondered who would use this song for Wicked Wednesday… It’s one I’ve always liked. :)Twenty-three seems a lifetime ago. I remember my ex gifting me with a bra when we were about that age. It’s… not as pleasant a lingerie memory as the one you’ve shared. šŸ˜‰

      I would be interested in what you find if you do go looking, Rebel. Frank sent me on a mission the last time I went to the city … bring back a red bra and panty set – not for play but for everyday which meant it had to be good quality (and bra size is always an issue for me). Prior to, I had looked online – there was nothing in red only to be found in my size at my favourite bra shops. I looked at several main lingerie stores in the city … the closest I could find was a sort of red … nowhere was the deep lush red I knew he was wanting. My assumption is, like us, the colour appears to be out of date … lol! … nj … xx

      Thanks, Missy … I was surprised that a true red, on its own (not in a pattern with another colour), was difficult to find … orangey red, pinky red but no red red … or like I said, at least not in my size in day to day lingerie. You’d think it would be a colour that would never go out of style … nj … xx
