Having discussed socks and their power, I now travel further north, as it were, to look at adult schoolgirls and what I consider to be an appropriate skirt. This is such an important part of the overall ensemble that it can make or break the outfit.
Too long, and it can look unflattering, reveal too little and resemble, too closely, a similar uniform worn by an underage girl. This is not what we are striving for at all.
The idea is to exaggerate, slightly the genuine article and make the wearer feel both innocent, vulnerable and sexy.
One disappointing aspect of purchasing adult schoolwear is the proliferation of tartan. Admittedly, it can look very sexy but a plain colour looks much more authentic.
The skirt should be box pleated, allowing free movement, cartwheels, bending and stretching during ‘exercise’ or playtime. A straight, pencil miniskirt won’t do at all: it’s much harder to raise and it inhibits movement.
If the skirt is to be worn to a party or outside of the bedroom or playroom, 12″ is probably an appropriate length. But remove that requirement, and a 10″ skirt is much more deliciously revealing.
An 8″ version is even more skimpy, verging on being more of a wide belt. The wearer only has to bend forward slightly to reveal an enticing flash of (hopefully) white, cotton knickers. I will be addressing appropriate underwear in a future post.
Having my Kitten wear schoolgirl attire around the house, or going about her chores, allows for an indulgence of my penchant for looking up her skirt. Plenty of bending activities are desirable as is the necessity to retrieve things from high shelves or cupboards using a small step ladder.
Whenever a man looks at a desirable woman in a schoolgirl-type pleated skirt, he’s probably asking two questions: first, is she wearing any knickers under that brief piece of fabric? If so, what type and what colour are these knickers?
By the way, I don’t hold at all with the American word ‘panties’. Although my Kitten is a beautiful, Southern belle, she knows much better than to use any word other than ‘knickers’ for her underwear. For me, ‘knickers’ has a hint of something excitingly naughty and forbidden, and is thereby far more sexually charged than ‘panties’ could ever hope to be.
I think it is incumbent on those of us on the UK side of the Atlantic to educate our beloved, American cousins in this matter. It’s ‘knickers’ all the way for me.
Of course there will always be times when knickers will be confiscated – modesty being a privilege that has to be earned. Asking one’s submissive to remove them in public and hand them over (at a restaurant table for example) is overwhelmingly exciting and charges the rest of the meal with a good deal of sexual promise and intrigue. Not only that, but a probing foot under the table can get right to the heart of a Dom’s desire and make his submissive squirm with embarrassment and arousal.
It goes without saying, I hope, that the beautiful prize, snuggly concealed in the wearer’s knickers, should be smoothly shaven.
From time to time mainstream fashion will pick up this unspoken appetite for adult schoolgirl attire: American Apparel, for example, produce a range of revealing, but wearable in public, miniskirts that certainly seem to be inspired by the desire to see a more glamorous version of school uniform.
Before you kit out your babygirl with school uniform, think carefully about the skirt. It will make the difference between a fulfilling fantasy and a laughable caricature.
