Interview with slipmodel Lady Phenie
Exclusive interview with Lady Phenie
Bard of Ely : When did you first discover slips and how long have you been wearing them?
Lady Phenie: I first discovered slips in my late teens,the fashion then was to
wear a slip liner which basically is a tight fitting and very plain
slip with no lace and was intended to give a smooth lining to your
tight pencil skirts. Since my teen years I have discovered how beautiful
in design that slips can be with gorgeous lace and amazing workmanship
in the form of appliques etc.That was of course many years ago, so I
would say I have been wearing slips for coming up to 40 years!
What do you think makes the slip such a sexy item of lingerie?
Lady Phenie: To me a slip shouts out femininity and it certainly makes me feel very
feminine when I wear a slip.The fabric also adds to the sensuality and
is mostly some form of silky soft nylon or satin, which again is very
femme and very arousing to the touch. Most of all though, I think the
slip is so sexy because of its mystery - you may get a flash of slip
peeking out from a split in a skirt or a little lace hanging below the
hemline of your dress and then you have to imagine what the rest looks
like. Men say they find this such a turn on and love to see a lady
showing her slip.
Do you have any favourite types of slip?
Lady Phenie: I like all slips, both half and full, vintage and modern but I do have a passion for vintage full slips. I have many in my collection from various makers including Van Raalte (my favourite) Vanity Fair, Barbizon, Wonder Maid, Movie Star, Gossard, Kayser...and the list goes on. My collection of slips now totals approx 170, both full slips and half slips.
Do you have any favourite makers of Vintage or modern slips?
Lady Phenie: Think I just answered this question, oops! My very favourite slip
maker is Van Raalte, the attention to detail and quality are simply
first class and the nylon they use is beautifully soft.

Lady Phenie interview continued
What do you think would be a good way of getting slips to be
fashionable and commonly worn again?
Lady Phenie: I really do not believe slips will ever become fashionable again. What I
do believe is that men will always love to see a lady in her slip. In my
experience I find that if my slip is showing, I get a lot more attention
from guys and cannot help notice the 'straying eyes' lol. Most skirts
and dresses these days are lined and most women do not feel the need to
wear a slip as they only see the practical use for them. Personally I always
wear a slip whether my skirt is lined or not. I just love the feel and a
slip makes me feel very sexy.
Please say a bit about yourself and your personal website.
Lady Phenie: Since I have always had a passion for beautiful feminine clothes and lingerie, especially slips, I decided (with a little persuation from friends) to launch my website in April 2008. I knew a lot of men enjoyed the sight of a lady in her slips and other sexy underwear from the general feedback I got from chatting but they rarely got to see it, unless they were lucky enough to have a partner who was accommodating in that field (slips I mean), and I guess there are not that many ladies out there that actually do wear slips. Anyway it seemed like a good idea and I had lots of help from some very nice people including my webmaster Simon, who is a lovely guy and has helped me so much (thank you Simon x).
My website is dedicated to beautiful feminine lingerie and of course silky soft slips. Members have now got access to over 5,000 pictures and they can arrange private chats with myself on my very own chatroom.
A member can also 'dress me.' This is a feature where they get to request what I wear and choose a scenario and their gallery then appears on my website named after themselves if they so wish. Its all good fun and I love nothing more than interacting and getting to know my members and indeed I have made some really lovely friends over the past year.
I would dearly like to offer my website for free but to be honest there are lots of costs to running a website, not to mention buying new clothing, lingerie etc to meet the requests of members, and I wear different clothing and slips in every gallery so that is 2 slips every week! So, as you can imagine I simply could not afford to do it. I really enjoy what I do and just love modelling my beautiful slips for you, and going by the lovely compliments and comments in the e-mails I receive, my members certainly enjoy it too! And that is what it's all about for me.
Anything else you would like to add?
Lady Phenie: ''I adore being a lady and everything that comes with it, I would like to share that with you.''
Thank you so much, Lady Phenie, for agreeing to this interview.
