According to Knickers Blog, the British retro lingerie company, What Katie Did, is launching a 50% off sale starting tomorrow, August 1. The image below is from one of their limited edition lines, which probably won’t be on sale, but gave me an excuse to post a gratuitous photo of leopard print lingerie. ;-) Edit: I just received an e-mail from the folks at What Katie Did stating that the […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Dollhouse Bettie has the Rago 72523 black satin garter belt and the Rago 8355 pink shapette girdle on sale now at 35% off the regular price. Both items were around the $30-$35 range and are now around the $20-$25 range so I think that’s a pretty good deal. Though I won’t do a complete review, I do have a couple of points of note […]

I Love Leopard Print!

I’m spreading the gospel…of leopard print, that is. If you haven’t guessed already, I have some pretty strong feelings about leopard print. Done well, I think it can be sexy, classy, daring, and just a little bit naughty and ferocious. Done poorly, it can make you look like a cheap tart. Unfortunately, most leopard print is very poorly done. Perhaps that’s why I’m so obsessed with Vanity Fair’s leopard print […]

Guess what I stumbled upon dear readers? Go here to see.* That’s right. It’s a vintage, Vanity Fair, leopard print panty girdle, size medium for the astoundingly low price of $49.00. Seriously, if this was in my size I’d have snapped it up already. Unfortunately, the hips are a bit too small. However, I’m hoping one of you can have the pleasure of owning this fine undergarment. I’ve already corresponded […]

Well, I couldn’t hold out until Saturday. The night was cool and breezy. I’m nylon deprived. So I buckled and put on a pair of stockings. These stockings to be exact: These are the Jonathan Aston micronet tights, made of 75% nylon, 25% lycra, available in sizes S-L, and in two colors–black and natural. They have a cotton gusset and a non-reinforced (albeit seamed) toe. I purchased a pair in […]

It’s Too Hot for Hosiery

I haven’t posted any hosiery or girdle reviews lately, because, as the subject line says, it’s just been too hot. For the uninitiated, Georgia summers often feature temperatures in the mid-90’s with humidity just as high. I break into a sweat as soon I step out of doors; the idea of wearing of wearing any more than necessary just makes me sweat more. That said, I’m going to a party […]

Someone just posted this gorgeous Vanity Fair bra and girdle set in pale yellow with tons of lace. The bra is size 34b; the girdle is size small. Bidding is still very, very low with a buy it now price of $60.00 and there appears to be no reserve. I’m a sucker for matching sets and Vanity Fair. If you are too, you might want to give a bid or […]

Etsy, that fabulous site for all things handmade, is now trying to become that fabulous site for all things vintage. You know what that means…the potential for bargain finds and rare discoveries. A quick search using terms like ‘girdle,’ ‘corset,’ and ‘nylons,’ has yielded interesting items like this 1950’s knit Vassarette girdle, this royal blue corset girdle, and these stockings which are an absolute steal at 4 pairs for $8.00.

I’m going out of town for a week, and won’t be able to post while I’m gone. However, that doesn’t mean the blog has to stagnate. If you see a pair of stockings you like or run across a sale or just feel like posting some stockings love, feel free to do so here. See you all when I get back!
