Being #SUBMISSIVE – Dress The Part – Guestpost by dievca


— Submission With Style —

Let’s talk clothing and D/s.

Let’s talk about the way dievca has Master’s preferences and desires in her mind every time she goes shopping. Let’s talk about how she plans simple or intricate outfits to surprise her Master. Why? Because this is a part of their dynamic that developed so many years ago and has kept their time together, fresh.

Who is dievca? dievca is Master’s submissive, she’s a bit of a clotheshorse and her Master desires diversity. Master and dievca are not in a 24/7 relationship, but dressing for Master drives many fashion and styling choices in dievca’s World.
Ms. Christina Mandara was kind enough to ask dievca to write a post about BDSM submissive fashion/style. It’s a tough topic because there are so many ways to go when presenting for your Master or Mistress. Their needs and desires are the focus. But, if your Dom (Domme) is more flexible in their Presentation Requirements and they love the idea that their submissive should think ahead and dress for them…dievca might be able to offer some suggestions!
One tenet that has defined Master and dievca’s relationship in regards to presenting is “Diversity”. Master likes for His dievca to change it up. That said, Master does have His favorite types of outfits and dievca will be using one as a template. In fact, she is coming into this post with the thought of finding a new presentation outfit for her Master – she is hoping this will spark some creativity for herself and other submissives.

Master’s Preferences:

Master prefers His dievca to look ladylike when they are out in public. He wants His dievca to show-off her curves, be confident and offer hints of BDSM in jewelry or accessories – riding the edge of telling it all.

The Dress:


Vintage 1950’s Day Dress

Underneath, is lingerie that is appropriate for Presentation. The dress will come off at some point and Master prefers His dievca to be in attractive lingerie while serving and submitting at home. He has a fondness for corsets, stockings, and heels. Blatantly slutty pieces don’t seem to go down well — Master prefers to unwrap His submissive and catch glimpses of her ASSets.

The Underpinnings:

dievca has been fascinated by a Corset Company based in Los Angeles. Exquisite Restraint with Limited Edition offerings. she doesn’t own an underbust corset and the idea of wearing one over a black slip is something different for Her Master.
dievca’s would add a black garter belt and seamed stockings from What Katie Did. No panties. Add simple heels in black.

The Accessories:

dievca would finish it off with a Vintage Collar she has been eyeing. Master has been very generous in the past with dievca’s “Public” Collars, this one is very bold.


Some other pieces that dievca would add from her collection:

The Beauty:
A chignon with simple daytime make-up, heavier on the eyebrows and eyelashes – plus, deep red lips: à la Audrey Hepburn.
The Critique:
OK….so the look is very 1950’s Retro and perhaps not your Master’s/Mistress’ thing. dievca would suggest that you sit a moment and think of the items you have worn that have made your Dom/Domme very pleased or excited. Then politely communicate that you would like to chose a Presentation Outfit as a surprise and build an outfit around those items. Now, your Master/Mistress might not go for it, but at least they know you have been thinking about their wants and needs as a good submissive should.

Christina – I would just like to take a moment to thank dievca for all her hard work and thoughtfulness in putting this post together. I have long been a fan of her blog and all of her D/s style fashion tips and posts. I love the dress she has picked for Master, and her fashion accessories are as always, absolutely perfect – my favourite being some of the more discreet body jewellery 😉 Thank you once again, dievca xox
