I Have Mail

I finally got it.

A chainmaille vest. Stainless steel, 5/32 welded rings and weighs about 3Kg. I saved on shipping but paid for that in the delay in getting it. It’s the largest size they have and I think I could have dropped the size a little, but if you get it wrong there’s no give and it won’t fit without inserting more rings.

    Did you get that to wear to the Melbourne Cup?

    Would look fetching with black lingerie…

    3Kgs seems very light for that much chain, thats good work. plus it will prevent sharks biting you if you wear it swimming

    Because the weight hangs from the shoulders (you normally wear a broad belt to help) it feels more. But it’s lots of small rings, their strength being that they are solid, so no rivet to fail or being able to force the ring back open. I have spare cut rings and I wouldn’t trust them against a thrust and it may be possible to open them with a slash.

    Maille is armour against slashing attacks but will help somewhat against thrusts … if the rings hold.

    I’m positive I saw a Hollywood starlet wearing that same dress on the red carpet at the Oscars. It was obvious she wasn’t wearing undergarments. I sincerely hope you wear reggies under yours, Bangar.

    Aunty Q and it will stay that way, stainless ftw

    CC, typically padding was worn underneath.

    Bangar, you put padding in your reggies? Oh, too much information!
