It is no secret I am a lover and collector of vintage lingerie, in particular 1920s and 1930s lingerie.

This era was a time of handmade delicate trims, rare laces, and beautiful silks that are impossible to find today. As with anything else, people collect vintage lingerie for different reasons. Some of […]

Around this time of year, everyone understandably has Halloween on the brain. While I wouldn’t think of myself as any particular kind of Halloween aficionado, I do enjoy looking at all the various kinds of “spooky” lingerie that debut during the month of October.

The beauty of the bralette is that it’s lightweight, soft, and easy to wear — but best of all, it has no underwires.

It’s a fact that people have been taking pictures of lovely ladies for as long as there have been cameras.

The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender was a couple of weeks ago, and while I wasn’t able to attend (one day!), it did make me start to reminisce on the burlesque artists from years past — names like Tempest Storm, Blaze Starr, Lily St. Cyr, and Noel Toy.
