Be Cheeky got inspired by Vintage Lingerie and have added a new (and still growing!) section on their website for Vintage inspired lingerie.
From their blog:
Corsets and basques are becoming big news again as the UK looks to past times for “comfort”. Fashion commentators believe that as we are pulling out of the hard times a recession brings, its common to look back at times gone by for emotional security. With the huge rise in Vintage fashion being so apparent this year, we’re not at all surprised to see sales of corsets and basques begin to fly.
Anyone visiting Vintage at Goodwood this year (it was AMAZING!) will have seen all the 50′s beauties in their stunning swimsuits posing for photos and floral dresses up to their elbows in cup cakes and vintage tea pots. I’ll post some of our photos below… There are also a number of films with the starring female ribboned into beautiful figure enhancing corsets – like Megan Fox in her new film for example.
We were surprised – but delighted – however, to see corsets cross over into the furniture industry. Look what we clocked today whilst flicking through a copy of the V&A Magazine.
To check out our Corsets section for our fabulous Corsets and Basques and our small but growing Vintage Lingerie section and look our for our soon-to-launch British Boutique range.
I fell in love with this Ooh La La Longline bra by Gossard. The Ooh La La collection is inspired by Gossard’s own super-sassy 1940′s “ooh la la” collection, this risqué range embraces true, timeless glamour and over 100 years experience of making you look great.
A dash of Parisian perfection playfully tips its hat to our heritage whilst encapsulating the latest cutting-edge fashion trends.
Check out the rest of the Vintage Inspired Lingerie section on the website.
Did you know Gossard lingerie has been around since 1901?
These vintage Gossard corset ads are adorable!
