Summer’s Wake ~ On Gossamer Cotton Mesh
By ELLEN LEWIS
I had another post planned for today, but it will have to wait. I am at our family vacation retreat on Schroon Lake in upstate NY. The house is going up for sale after 60 years of memories. There is nothing quite like October in the Adirondack Mountains. Usually at this time of year, the trees are ablaze with color, but for some reason (climate change?) they are still very green, a glaze of paprika and cumin is all one can see. The water is crystal clear, void of jet skis and high power motors. Absolute silence prevails as our simple pontoon boat skims over the surface. The sun is out, the sky blue and cloudless; a welcome respite from a depressingly soggy season. Elegantly warm; sweatshirts only, it is summer’s last hurrah.
This results in writing on a different subject than the original intent; just as the short journey up here was an unexpected lift. Next week I will regroup. But today is all about On Gossamer’s Cotton Mesh collection. Seeing it at Curve gave me the same sort of encouragement that today’s boat ride did. This assortment of bras and panties goes right to the heart of the On Gossamer DNA, light as air intimates that provide casual, comfortable support. Similar in spirit to the classic mesh basics that have been best-sellers for as long as I remember, this contemporary iteration is infused with a hint of soft cotton. Delicate, sexy bra choices are available in sizes ranging from 30-36, A-DD; panties S-L. What makes them so energizing is their weightless appeal, as if one is wearing nothing at all. For my part, the hi-cut briefs are an intricate part of my wardrobe year round. I can’t wear the bras; one must remain realistic even at the most difficult of times. But for those of you who can, enjoy the escape.
