I love lace. It is probably not a big surprise because it is one of the materials that goths generally feel an affinity towards. And in recent years lace has returned to mainstream fashion, which has made it much easier for me to buy cheap clothes that I can mix and match with. I own a lot of lace dresses, underwear and lingerie. But this is definitely not a new thing for me.
In the 1990s (yes, I am old!), I had more of a romantic Victorian goth style and I wore a lot of lace and velvet. I eventually went more with the old school goth style, but you can really mix that with lace materials too.
Lace makes me feel sexy, but in a more decent and romantic way. It covers your naked skin, but also reveals a little. I am not someone who wears lingerie to seduce their partner, but I like feeling sexy when going out, and a lace dress, or skirt, makes that happen for me.
