Vintage lingerie super sexy and classy and these days with vintage inspired pieces popping up like bustiers, high waisted panties and frilly rompers, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort or modern fit.
Long ago, ladies used to wear things like garter belts, slips and corsets underneath their clothes. While I certainly don’t envy having to wear all of those fussy lingerie pieces, I do often pine for the glamour of Old Hollywood-style vintage lingerie. These days, where string thongs and extreme push up bras are running rampant, there’s something to said for wearing classic pieces that still leave a bit to the imagination. Lucky for us, we can have the best of both worlds with the recent trend of vintage inspired lingerie that blends vintage trends with modern comforts and fit. Here are a few key pieces to look for to add a bit of old school style into your lingerie collection.
Bustier: Back in the day, these shape makers were meant to suck us in (read: uncomfortable). Modern day bustiers are less restrictive so you can get the same dolled up look without the pain. Look for a style that has a cropped fit and wear it peeking out from underneath a sheer top or sweater for added playfulness.
Frilly rompers: Sweat pants are comfy and all but sometimes it’s fun to don something a bit more playful when relaxing at home. Why not mix it up with a cute frilly romper which is just as comfy as sweats and will infuse your loungewear with a bit of playfulness.
High waisted panties: Ladies, I’ve seen enough plumber butt to last a lifetime, it’s time to trade those low rider undies in for a classier pair. Instead, try a pair of high waisted silk or satin panties. These sexy underthings defy the term “granny panties” and can act as much needed shapewear.
Balconette bras: This bra shape is about the sexiest out there and was worn by burlesque divas and pinup girls back in the day. Not only does the balconette bra look super sexy, it’s also one of the only bra shapes that works for women of all sizes, large and small.
