"Layer Upon Layer"
TOPIC NUMBER NINE
GENUINE (GENETIC) FEMALES ONLY!
Do "real" ladies enjoy and got the same
satisfaction in wearing soft rustling petticoats and lingerie the way that
CDers do? Do you think that if a CDer magically became a real girl overnight, would the fascination still exist?

We girls sure do like the feel of
petticoats and feminine lingerie. I think my feelings when I put on that
silky slip and oh-so-soft petti are probably just the same as a CD who
wears them. Growing up poor I never had a complete matching set of
anything, and dresses were rare because they cost a lot more. But I
remember my only petti like it was this morning. I would play dress
up with my friends, and I'd wear it instead of a skirt because I had no
dress to go with it. It was originally intended for

I love to wear clothes that make me feel feminine; I love the way the softness of my lingerie feels against my skin, the way the ruffles on my skirt move as I move. I think that if a CD became a woman overnight that their feelings wouldn’t change. I do feel though as a woman we can sometimes take the feelings our clothes give us for granted.

Wearing beautiful things is a very pleasurable experience in many ways - but, like Allison, I agree that the practicality issue does have an impact on how often and when you can wear these things. I would hate to have to wear "feminine" clothes all of the time. They are often a hindrance to basic comfort, and are frequently more of a "trap" than a pleasure. (They come to define 'femininity', when it is really so much more.)

The idea of "dressing to the nines" is one that few
people have the time for these days. As a woman, I enjoy beautiful and
feminine clothing and wear these fashions anytime that I can do so, but a
beautiful dress with long flowing skirts (my favourite) or slinky dresses
that show off all of the curves are not practical on a day to day basis.

Yes, there are women in this day and age who enjoy wearing crinolines. It is just not that often that you can find them, I think. I have always seen crinolines in films, but it was not until last year that I had even heard of your site. I had been intrigued by the idea of wearing them, but had no clue on how to find them. A wonderful and dear friend showed me your site, and from there I started hunting. I found my first crinoline in Charleston, NC, when visiting with some family, and then, over the next few months, found some on E-bay that I fell in love with. I finally got brave enough to start wearing them out in public and I loved it. The feeling of being so totally feminine and, the way they move with you as you walk was incredible. I normally like to be more feminine in my clothing, with wearing stockings and all, but I could not have felt more so if I tried once I was wearing the crinoline. And the reactions of people around me, especially the men, was surprising. I had worn it to work and the amount of compliments had me on cloud nine all day long. I can very much see why women wore them; to feel dainty and feminine while getting the most help and proper manners from men. And the look that a person gets in his or her eyes when seeing someone dressed in a crinoline, makes you realize why the lover's lane was so busy during the fifties. And yes, I only know about the fifties thanks to my parents, and old B rated movies. :)
I can see why a CD would enjoy them so, with the
feminine loveliness of them, and the way they float around a person as
they walk. From what I understand, it is the symbol of it, along with how
it looks, that they enjoy so much. I don't see how anyone, having worn
them, be the person male or
[from the editor] Hello Kitten --
You are very brave, indeed, to do such a thing in this age, where women have been brainwashed into thinking that less is more. You seem to grasp what very few women these days do not: Clothing can be an enormously subtle, but effective way for a woman to bring out the best in a man, whether it be sexual or social. However, I suppose it is the men's fault, mostly. They have given women, in general, the impression that the only thing they want is nudity or semi nudity, and the women in this country at least, have bought that hook, line, and sinker. What a great shame! Why not emphasis the difference between the genders, instead of blur them? It makes life so much more interesting, and gives woman their due, their respected and elevated place in society, instead of making them a commodity. A large portion of the "feminist" movement missed that, now didn't they?
More power to you! Keep it up, and, should you want to share your new look with the rest of us, send us a picture to two! As of now, we only know of one other lady ("PettiLady") brave enough to to take up this retro cause, and she has expressed similar sentiments (see next entry). We poor dreamers can only dream of a world long lost. <sigh>.

Yes, I am out here keeping up with all the news at Pettipond. Since you requested that only REAL women should reply to topic # 9, I feel obligated to do so.
I love wearing full skirts with very full petticoats. I love the softness against my skin that I feel when i put on silky hose...lacy bras... and everything else that makes me feel so very feminine! It's hard to describe the sensation that I get when I go out all dressed up. I think CDers are only expressing themselves to a fashion they find appealing and would like to see more women wear....maybe even their significant other. To me, this is true fashion!
Regarding the other question on CDers, I think that even if a CDer changed overnight into a real woman, that person would still love to dress this way. It is not a question of being a "sissy" it is just a long forgotten style that many of us (men and women) hate to give up! A lot of men tell me how wonderful I look and they wish their wife would dress like this....their wives are wearing jeans and t-shirts at the time. Pardon me!! But jeans are for fishing in my brook! I want to look sexy..feminine..helpless...and any other adjective that applies. I also love seeing the adoring looks that I get from my husband. I have said it before and i will say it again. REAL WOMEN DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE MISSING!!!!
