Hi dolls! I hope everyone had a great and amazing holiday! My surgery went well, my surgeon found a rare tear of a ligament that makes up the capsule of your shoulder called a HAGL tear (Orthopaedics and medicine is another passion of mine too 🙂 )
Over the past few weeks, I have gotten extremely interested in retro and pinup lingerie. I have found a few great sites that offer amazing and beautiful lingerie, that I have personally bought from and found to be amazing.
Secrets in Lace Retro Lingerie – I recently bought a beautiful bullet bra and bullet bra pads, which they amazingly had in my size (36 DD – I figured I would size up with the pads). I tried it on (difficult to do with recent shoulder surgery and being majorly restricted in movement!), and it fit beautifully. It looked amazing on, and you can also take the bullet bra pads out for more of a softer “bullet” look. They also exclusively have the Bettie Page and Dita Von Teese lingerie lines, and might I say, I was DROOLING. I can’t wait to buy more!
Dollhouse Bettie – I recently bought a beautiful ’40s looking garter belt and backseam thigh high stockings to go with it. The prices are great, and everything is amazing looking. I can’t stop perusing! They also have authentic vintage lingerie from the ’30s through the ’60s, which are absolutely stunning. A must see!
Lingerie can make a huge difference in your look, especially for going for a vintage look. Bullet bras are definitely a very retro thing, as well as waist cinchers (Rago is particularly known to be the best for these – Secrets in Lace has quite a selection!). You would always see the Hollywood starlets with particularly small waists, and this was how they achieved this look. It’s great to also smooth out any belly pooches or little love handles you may have and form you into such a gorgeous vixen that men will be turning to stare!
Garter belts and thigh high stocking are also a necessity for the authentic retro look. Dollhouse Bettie had a ton of beautiful vintage belts, as did Secrets in Lace. Retro garter belts sat higher on the waist than the ones available now that are more modern, which sit more on the hips. There is no way to feel sexier than a garter belt and thigh high stockings with a back seam. I absolutely love the look and intend to wear it frequently 🙂
Pegnoirs and chemises are a great way to add some vintage sexy to your look. Have your hair curled like Rita Hayworth, wear some cute heels, and my goodness, you will be irresistible! I intend to buy a set soon, but as I have limited funds right now, it will have to wait for sometime in the future.
Vintage lingerie can really make a huge difference in your look, although you may not think it at first. But when you trry it, you will see! It really is the royal way to add that extra oomph to your retro/vintage look, and really makes you feel like you are living in the decade you were truly meant to live in!
