Selfies: Spoilt For Choice

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 23, 2014 in Absolute Hot! |

You stand in front of a wardrobe overflowing with dresses, with blouses, skirts, shoes, underwear, pullover, t-shirts, everything imaginable, and don’t know what to wear. Or, worse still, come out with that well-used statement that you’ve nothing to wear. Perhaps nothing suitable for the occasion, depending on what it is, but the frustration rises as you look here and there, take one thing out, put it back, try another. Decisions.

The best thing to do, perhaps, is try several different combinations on and see how it looks. Imagine yourself in a boutique, in the changing booth with the allotted three or four items and a chance to try each one on and see which suits you the best. This, as we all know, is the nightmare of every single man although, just between you and me, I know this feeling only too well. I’ve been on both sides: in the booth with piles of potential purchases, and outside, waiting. But let is take it one stage further: we’re not looking for a dress, a new skirt, a matching blouse but something closer to the skin.

It makes sense that women cannot try bikinis and underwear on. At the same time it is annoying because, how can we see if it is the right one, the right fit without trying at least once? How do we know if our bikini figure is going to fit inside this minute bit of fabric and cover all the bits we want covered? I have no desire to buy something, get it home, and then discover that my boobs are so flattened that either I cannot breathe any more, or they will burst out with the slightest movement. This may well be what other people desire, those who watch and wait, but not me, not if I don’t want to show off everything. And then, why should I bother buying a bikini anyway?

Another thought: why does a bikini cost so much when there is absolutely nothing to it? Some of the strings, tanga and thongs I have seen – and I do trust myself enough to wear them in public – are almost so expensive that you need a bank credit to afford them, and we only wear these wonderful fashion items for one season. Next year, something else. Fashion, even when it comes to bikinis and lingerie, has a very short lifespan.

How can we tell if it is the right choice when it’s still on the hanger? Impossible. We rely on images of other people wearing the same thing, or similar, on fashion magazines and what we’ve seen on the beach of our choice. By which time, as far as the beach is concerned, it’s too late anyway: we’ve made our choice, we’re there amidst all the others, and there is no going back. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could just try everything on, see how it fits, if it fits at all, and whether it suits us?

Sometimes I envy those who model clothing. The chance to test, to see, to experience without the obligation to buy. Fine, there is a certain amount of prancing around, of being ogled by the masses as they try to balance on high heels, turn without falling, but such a choice and that before anyone else gets a chance.

Instead, as with so many other women, I am stuck in a small booth with a selection of things I might want, and can only hold them up to make a guess, to take a chance that what I choose is going to be the right one, that I am going to feel comfortable and halfway decent.

Then again, perhaps a roll of blue duct tape would serve the same purpose! I took a look at some of the micro-bikinis at the start of the year, when they first appeared in the shops. A piece of string and precious little more. On some of them the price tag was bigger. You might just as well seek out a nudist colony and forget the whole thing. Who needs clothing when there is so little of it anyway?

There are the demands of society, though, and we all feel forced to follow them.

Love & Kisses, Viki.
