While I never go all out for Halloween, I do love the idea of using my lingerie to channel looks that remind me of my favorite stories and characters. Even if you aren’t planning on dressing up at the end of the month, I think it’s fun to use your lingerie as a way to channel your inner mermaid, favorite food or superwoman. All of these pieces could be used as part of a costume or as a more thematic everyday lingerie item, so there are lots of ways to incorporate them into your life. As usual, just click on the images to find out more about each item!
Food Themed Lingerie:
Frantic About Frances is a retro inspired Etsy brand who makes great novelty bullet bras sets inspired by whimsical subjects like candy and cars. Her current bullet bra sizing goes up to an F cup, but you can also contact her about custom sizing as well.
Knickerocker clearly has food on the brain this season, as her primary collection consisted of sleepdresses, crop tops and lingerie inspired by various junk food items. Each piece has a 3D element built in as well, so these sets really pop.
Elomi has rediscovered their experimental side this season with this snakeskin print lingerie set that is inspired by jungles. This is a big fashion risk for them and I’m so glad to see it! I love the details as well as the unexpected colors.
If you want a great everyday bra with a fun print, this is it. The Panache Jasmine has been an incredibly popular bra shape for the past few years, so it’s hard to go wrong with any version of it. The black and graphite animal print look is just icing on the cake.
Mermaids and Other Fantasy Creatures:
Maison Lejaby makes beautiful things, but this bra is a particular favorite of mine. The color is lush yet basic, while the lace and embroidery create stunning design elements. If you want a set you can wear everyday but will still make you feel like a mermaid princess, this is it.
This bra has been around for awhile now, but I feel like it’s impossible to discuss mermaid inspired lingerie without mentioning it. While it’s more costume oriented than the Maison Lejaby set above, it’s still beautiful and fun. I actually think this would look great as part of a mermaid costume for Halloween.
All Undone hasn’t gotten much press since they launched, but they’ve continued to put out sleek luxury lingerie that looks unlike anything else on the market. This set reminds me of what Wonderwoman’s lingerie drawer might look like.
I’ve been a fan of Erica M’s stockings for several seasons now, but more importantly Beyonce has now become a public fan! It’s given the brand a visibility they haven’t had before, so it’s great to see them expanding beyond their original stockings line. This red mesh bodysuit is a retro inspired and stylish version of the superhero singlet. I think this would look great when used as part of a costume, but would also work under a slim cut jacket for a night out.
Are you incorporating lingerie into your Halloween costume this year? If so, how?
