Retro Undies for a Vintage Wedding

Getting married in a vintage dress? Offbeat Bride has great suggestions for retro-styled undies that will deliver the necessary support! I can vouch for this gorgeous Rago girdle.

VINTAGE-SHAPER-GARTER-SKIRT

Instead of ogling shoes this week (…I KNOW!), I’m going to take a quick moment to enjoy some underwear.
Specifically, retro-styled underwear that could go awesome under a vintage-influenced dress. We’re talking high-waisted, low-hipped, and all awesome.

 See their suggestions on the website.

Feel Sexy Every Day

Dita Von Teese, empress of burlesque, shares her advice on how to feel sexy every day! I love her perspective and she has some amazing lingerie advice, naturally.

Dita von Teese knows a thing or two about sex appeal. It’s an art form she’s been studying since childhood, riffling through her mother’s panty drawer (“she had some pretty sexy things in there”), getting her first job at a lingerie store at 15 (“I begged them to let me be a stock girl”), and saving up those early earnings for secret, sultry purchases (Her very first? “It was a Tiffany blue, shiny, silk garter belt”).

Vintage Mama Loves Rago!

Vintage fashion mama from NY, Bunny’s Victory, runs a blog to share with fellow fashionistas who adore iconic styles! Foundation garments are the key to having your vintage dress fit like a glove, but those extra layers don’t feel so great once the weather gets warmer. That’s why Bunny tried on a Rago style 1294 girdle as a breathable warm weather alternative. See what she had to say.

 ”I found both to be extremely comfortable but for the dress I say 100% for the Rago. I loved how much tummy support it gave me. I think there is a difference. What I loved about it also is that it felt so comfortable and it was easy to put on. It was a little tricky to get the zipper up for me, only because my hands weak. It was easy to go up and down the stairs as well. I haven’t worn it with the stockings just yet but I have a feeling I will love it even more.” – Bunny
