We spoke on things like how good that almost kind of sex can be, how it can linger with you longer than you’d like. We talked a lot about this encounter having something to do with being alive, like getting your heart to race was an obligation you owed yourself, to your soft skin and burgundy filled veins. And when we were tired of talking we kissed like one of us was bound to die too soon, touched like it was the last thing we may ever do. And then you slipped into a light sleep of ragged breaths and parted lips, and while you were sleeping said things about never again.
While You Were Sleeping, from Hopeless Lingerie, is part provocative and equally ethereal. Hopeless’s signature look of cutouts, harnesses, and come-get-me sheer pieces is set against the haunting backdrop of still water on a dark afternoon. The line is known for their feminine prowess, creating lingerie in an array of sizes, encouraging every woman to tease out her sexual nature and spend some time on the darker side. Every single piece is handmade to order in Melbourne, Australia and shipped worldwide.
