HALP! I fail at lingerie!

So.

It's no secret I'm not exactly girly. While I occasionally like to slip into something sexy, I'm not really that girl. And I'm plus size, so it's hard to find nice lingerie in my size. Especially in the chest area. In my lifetime, not including everyday bra and panties, I think I've owned maybe 15 pieces of lingerie.

Generally speaking, the stuff I buy is EASY. Adjustable elastic straps that slide over my shoulders, or hooks, or...

This thing is confusing. There are two straps that come from the chest area and two that come from the back. And around where your bra strap would fall, there are little loops on the sides.

It's obviously supposed to be tied somehow, because each strap has a free end, and the loops are meant to have something threaded through them. The back wouldn't lay flat if they didn't.

So how does it work?! I know one of you lingerie enthusiasts has got to be able to explain this to me.

Why do they make womens clothing so damn complicated? Gah!

Ok, you cross the straps then slip them through those little loops and tie them in the center. That's what makes it adjustable It's a criss-cross look. Very sexy!

I wasn't very helpful was I? Sorry! Slip the straps through the opposite loops so that they are criss-crossed on your back. Then tie the strings together in the center. You'll have crossed straps and and a keyhole above your ass

Wow, Dreamgirl provided about two dozen product photos in total, but not a single one that shows the back.

Thank heavens for EF contributors!

Okay... Here's the back:



Do I tie those straps to each other or to the shoulder straps?

If in doubt, M can always use those straps to tie you up.

And I'm so glad that men's clothing is not this difficult. I'd probably wind up with underwear on my head.

Oh, now that might be interesting. Hmmm... The shoulder straps are pretty long. I bet he could work out a decent behind-the-back tie...

each other. The shoulder straps tie behind your neck.
