Sheer

Posted on | January 22, 2009 | 18 Comments |

One of the great things about summer (yes, it’s summer down here in the Southern Hemisphere) is sarongs. I have a variety of colours and patterns – which go with my moods and my clothes – and they’re ever so handy!

After Apollo and I first moved in together, he promptly claimed one of my sarongs – in this heat it’s morning wear, post-work wear, and all-weekend wear! It was originally a gift from my (now ex) partner’s brother’s partner, so was happy to give it a more positive spin. Not to mention the yellow and green suit him, and I get to perve at his arse through the thin material…


My own sarongs have come from all over the place. I still have my first-ever sarong, a gift my mother brought back from Bali when I was still a teen. Then there’s the sarong I purchased at Sea World on the Gold Coast; sarongs I’ve found in hospice shops and fashion boutiques (for the larger lady); and sarongs that I’ve been gifted by friends who’ve travelled.


This is one of them. A friend came back from Fiji with this for me, and I love it. Not only is it one of only two sarongs that doesn’t need ironing after a wash … it’s also remarkably sheer!


Sarongs can be worn long, or folded in half. You can tie it around the breasts, or wrap it around the hips. It can be tied in a knot or pulled through a coconut-shell sarong-holder, or merely tucked in place.

But they always look great.

Many thanks to Aphrodite for taking great photos!

    a sheer sarong has so many uses – and should never be restricted for just women wear :)

    jolly pics .. although i am wistful for warmer days now.

    Happy HNT!

    Fantastic HNT! You know, I don’t own a sarong (yeah weird since I live in California)BUT you make it plainly obvious that I should! When summer rolls around here again, that will be one of my summer time purchases.

    I have several sarongs that I love wearing when the weather is nice. Today is not one of those days (54 and raining).

    You look fabulous – and that sarong is beautiful.

    peace…

    Oh that is so beautiful – I love the sheer rainbow of colors.

    I’m so jealous of your warm weather though – I’m wearing socks and sweatpants today!

    Marcello – Your play on words amuses me :)

    Ms. Lily – Allow me to send you some sunshine and warmth through the internet-tubes.

    Vixen – Glad someone else has some hot weather!

    BBG – I would love to see a pic of you in a sarong sometime, you know.

    Dreamer – Everyone should own (at least one) a sarong. And I’m really pleased with that second image too :)

    Amorous Rocker – Aphrodite has a great eye for photos, and I love how that one came out.

    Carnalis – I am of the opinion that sarongs are for all. Mind you, with our large Pacific Island population, it’s not uncommon to see more men than women in them :)

    Dana – In this instance Aphrodite (taking the photos) was the creative one. But thank you!

    Mina – Hooray for convincing you that a sarong is a must. Make sure you get one for Sylvanus too :)

    Wendy – *snicker* Yes, yes it is.

    Jobthingy – So, did you prance? Enquiring minds would like to know!

    Sitting on Satan – I love my glasses. They mean I can see what I’m doing :)

    hntfor3 – Perhaps an idea for a Summer HNT for you?

    Thursday – If anyone can make socks and sweats sexy, it’s you!

    viemoira – Excellent. Soon, sarongs will take over the world …

    Artist, Cowgirl – Thank you both!

    xx to all, Dee
