River Island mesh and lace strappy body

Yes.  Quite.

We were speechless too when we saw this on the River Island website.  This appears to be a black lace lingerie set, held together with a section of black mesh.  Whilst we have just about got our heads around the return of the bodysuit for this season, we cannot understand why such a garment as this should exist at all.

It is listed on the website as a going out top but we would really rather it was in the underwear section, if it has to appear on there at all.  We can’t help but wonder just who would wear this when Lady Gaga will wear this, and in what situation?  We will attempt to get to the bottom of that mystery but in the meantime, if you want to channel Gaga, you can buy it here for £19.99.

    I actually own something that resembles this one, though mine is prettier that this one 🙂 and it’s actually quite comfortable (as lingerie of course) and since it’s almost backless I wear it a lot…it was actually a good investment

    This would be much better as a bathing suit, I’d think.

    I think this was inspired by Lily Allen. Hasn’t she, basically, been touring in her lacy underwear for a couple of years now?

    It’s £14.99 not £19.99 btw, not that that makes it any better…Although I do know a few people that would probably like this…

    lingerie sexy

    I am not sure this is daring enough for Gaga herself, but there must be some lingerie for her followers as well, right ?
