An ode to what was is influencing what is now at the forefront of lingerie; retro and vintage are what’s new and what’s trendy. From slinky slips and long chemises, to high waisted pops of colour and pattern, you can be anything from a retro pin up girl to a 1940s on-screen vixen with current designs. Now That’s Lingerie has everything you need to turn yourself into a retro babe.
All you need are some finger curls and a tube of red lipstick, and you’re a burlesque dancer in this matching bra and panty. The luxe embroidered velvet is soft, adding some mystery to the semi-sheer mesh. Feel relaxed with a wireless, triangle shaped cup, and feel your curves smoothed out in the ultra high waisted panty that is incredibly comfortable to wear all day.
We feel like we’re back in the 60’s sipping on a milkshake with these fun and funky polka dots on this bra and panty set. The contrast of the black and red pops, with very strong but comfortable supportive cups. The panty is a little bit sexy with sheer mesh and just a pop of red. Try the matching babydoll for a subtle hint at the 1960’s inspiration.
Many of us ladies don’t want to go back to the days where we were confined by too-tight corsets and girdles. However, now corsets are a sexy addition to your lingerie collection that you can breathe in. Take this hot little number by Triumph Lingerie, with a lacy bodice and scalloped lace edging. A strapless, sweetheart neckline is complementary to the bust, and detachable garter straps let you complete the look with thigh-high stockings.
A little bit retro, a little bit vintage, and a whole lot of gorgeous blue! We love this tuxedo inspired bralette and brief, done in a brilliant shiny fabric adorned with black lace applique and button detail. The bralette features sturdy underwired cups and flows down just below the natural waist, while the brief rises to just under the belly button. Throw on a little semi-sheer robe over top and surprise your man with a journey back in time.
Lastly, we have a long, lace adorned gown that’s simple to throw on top of your bra and panty for a demure look in the morning. We can imagine a 1950s movie vixen like Marilyn Monroe sharing the screen with her love interest in something modestly sexy like this. A little peek-a-boo back adds a modern touch to such a classic style.
