Fads in lingerie come and go but one that seems to be enduring the test of time is vintage lingerie. This old school style is an adorable turn on and can even make for a naughty lingerie look. If you love vintage, here are some sexy items you will want to look out for to ensure you are the height of vintage fashion.
Bullet Bras: If you are going for a vintage lingerie look, bullet bras are a must. The cup sizes haven’t changed so if you are shopping authentic vintage, just look for the size you are currently wearing.
Bullet bras may have to be stuffed a bit to look really perky, so don’t be discouraged if this happens to you…it’s pretty common.
Girdle: Girdles are the vintage answer to Spanx…but they are a lot less comfortable. They can zip or lace up or even slide on and, even if you don’t need one, they will get you that great vintage look you are after.
Knickers: In days of old, women actually wore these pieces as underwear. Today, they might not exactly be the height of sexy lingerie, but they are definitely vintage approved.
When looking for knickers, try to find a pair with a high waist. If you wear low waisted ones under clothing that is high waisted, you will get an unwanted panty line.
Garter Belts: Garter belts are pieces that are as old as time. It is no wonder that you would want this piece of kinky lingerie to complete your vintage look.
If you are wearing your garter belt in the bedroom only, you will want one that sits low on your hips. However, if you are wearing it for practical purposes, you will want it to wrap around your waistline for optimal support.
Garter belts may also be attached to girdles or a lingerie teddy.
Petticoats: Petticoats were worn in times of old to give skirts and dresses a nice flowing line. They were also perfect for skirts and dresses that were see through.
Nowadays, women will wear a slip, if anything, but petticoats still make for a great vintage look.
Because petticoats are see-through, they can be very sexy when worn over an old fashioned bra and panty set.
If you going to buy sexy lingerie that is real deal vintage lingerie, make sure to check the elasticity of the items you are buying to ensure they won’t fall off you!
Once you have a great vintage lingerie outfit together, do your hair in heavy bangs, wear plenty of red lipstick and get ready to have a terrific time. These looks are great for burlesque, photo shoots and more. We can’t wait to see the styles you are able to create.
