Starter Girdles

If you’ve never worn a girdle before and would like to try it for the summer (maybe with a pair of breathable stockings), this list is great for starter pieces! They’re all comfortable, beautiful, good quality, and not too sturdy. I personally love Rago (the first one on the list!), and American Shapewear just so happens to be having a sale on their light garments!

Colorful Foundations

I ran across this gorgeous image of colorful bodysuits while pinning and was reminded of a great resource for vintage fashion lovers to find good quality, colorful foundations!

If you’ve got a collection of bright outfits, you should check out Orchard Corset‘s  collection of custom-dyed foundation garments. When your lingerie matches your outfits, you know you really have your style put together. They carry my favorite brands in all of the colors in the rainbow! The lingerie in the vintage illustration I found looks so similar to my beloved Rago #9357 corselette, picked up from American Shapewear (whose site just had a great makeover, see: http://www.americanshapewear.com/).
