In this post I am going to cover the key pieces that make up a vintage lingerie look, so you will know how to dress the part of girdles pin up, or create the foundation for a s fashion look. During the s vintage 50s lingerie was used to create a specific silhouette.
Open Bottom Girdles
This silhouette had a pointed bust, a wasp waist and accentuated, yet controlled curves. A full circle petticoat was added to create volume at the hemline when worn under a full circle lingerie. The pointed bust that was popular during the s internal view of pussy achieved girdle using a bullet bra. The bullet bra creates the appearance girdle a conical, angular bust.
Overwire Bra - The overwire bra also creates a pointed bust and as you can visualise from the name, the wire sits across the bust, not underneath girdles a modern day bra. High waist Knickers - Curve enhancing high waist knickers create shape and give support and comfort.
Choose a pair with suspender straps already attached to vintage on your stockings sometimes called panty girdles. Girdle - A girdle is a foundation garment to give support vintage contour to your hips and waist.
The garment is usually made from nylon and lycra. A girdle has no gusset so you will need to wear underwear underneath the girdle. Girdles have suspender vintage clips to hold up stockings. Look for a girdle with 6 metal suspender clips for a true replication of the lingerie.
