I think its fair to say that the difference between the 2 obvious images of maid’s outfits, is quite drastic. There is the gorgeous, formal maid outfit, that used to be worn so delightfully in the old days, by maids, in service, generally to wealthy families. I’m sure there are still households where they’re worn today, but in lesser numbers. Yes, I love the whole look, would love to wear one of those gorgeous formal ones, either in service, just for a shoot, or even just to wear one.
But in truth, most people, when you mention a maid outfit, think of the very sexy, ‘French Maid’ outfit, which tends to lack for subtlety, and is probably more used for service in different matters, or just in submission scenes. In a sense, they can be fun too, though not in a formal, service sense. I have a funny feeling I may once have even worn one, but I cant remember any details if I did. I know someone talked about it once, but whether it actually happened, well? If it did, its nearly 15 years ago, and my memory is not quite that good. As in, I did serve as a maid for someone, for a weekend, about 2003/4, but I cant remember if I got given a uniform or not, now.
Yes, I probably would, again, if I got a decent offer, but nowadays, approaching 60, I doubt I’m going to get any sexy maid offers anytime in the future! But yes, if someone wants to give me the chance to get into a formal maid outfit, and serve accordingly, then yes, I’d love to, but I’d want the formal look, not the sexy one! Or if someone wants someone to be a maid, for a shoot, or a play, or a movie…? 😉
What brought this on, I hear you ask? Well, reading the latest chapter of this, might have played a part!
The fascination of this, is despite the situation, she hopes Jane will have got a formal maid outfit, but…I dont think she minds, really, lol!
In truth, the only other role I can think of, with as much differential in uniforms, is a nurse. But if you think otherwise, let me know? Go on, be a devil!
OK, video time. So as someone who would prefer the formal maid look for myself, I choose a song that screams French Maid, from the title! I know, I’m strange like that, lol! 😛
