After possibly the most manic business week that I've ever had, I'm very much ready to get stuck into some underwear history again... And this suspender belt couldn't have arrived at a better time! It dates from around 1905 and is constructed with interlocked silk grosgrain ribbon, not disimilar to the ribbon corsets of the same period. I suspect this piece was in fact designed to be worn over a corset.
A hosiery exhibition might have to be on the cards... other recent acquisitions include a 1896 suspender belt and a Regency garter 💕 so excited for 2017 when we can start documenting all of these wondrous objects for you!

Some fun vintage style lingerie today! 💕

The bra pattern is from the @underpinningsmuseum which I recieved from their kickstarter campaign. This is both the first strapless and first cathedral bra I have made and I'm happy as a first attempt but I can't wait to improve it! Also some pleaty tap pants I rustled up this afternoon.

Is there anything more beautiful than vintage lingerie? Thank you @underpinningsmuseum for sending these out to me. #vintagelingerie #underpinningsmuseum #lingerie #50slingerie #20slingerie

Repost from @underpinningsmuseum - I'm beyond excited to announce that our Kickstarter campaign for the museum is finally live!

Shown here is a couture rendition of the Kestos bra style from the 1930s. It's truly exqusitiely made: entirely hand sewn with stunning embroidery detail. It is one of the first objects that will go into the museum, and has been photographed beautifully by @tigzrice

Detail from a pair of 1930s tap pants: exquisite couture details, with hand finished binding, French seams and embroidery. These tap pants are part of a bralet set that features in our next exhibition: 'Lift & Separate: Technology & The Bra'. It documents the history of the bra from the 1900s and it's had a phenomenal amount of work go into it. It's not quite ready but it's very nearly there and I'm so excited to share it all with you!

I'll be updating our Kickstarter backers very soon on the exhibition progress and remaining rewards. Thank you so much for everyone's support ❤ this project has grown so much bigger than I'd ever anticipated and it's been hard to devote to it the attention it's deserved so our supporter's patience means a lot.

Final 2 hours of our Kickstarter! Last chance to support the campaign to make this museum extra shiny 💕 incredibly excited to share pieces like this 1950s monowire strapless bra

Antique corsetry just takes my breath away... Isn't the flossing embroidery on this late 1880s Belgian piece utterly incredible? I'm already dreaming of a corset exhibition in the near future, we have some incredible pieces in the collection that I'm dying to share.

Which period of corsetry is your favourite? Do you have a favourite modern designer or single favourite design?

Calling all underwear enthusiasts, fashion lovers, and knicker wearers!!!I've just discovered the Underpinnings Museum. For anyone who doesn't know already, this is an amazing online museum and lingerie archive dedicated to showcasing the evolution of underwear. A great resource for costume historians and fashion students, as well as being an exciting read for lingerie enthusiasts generally. Check out @lipsticklori (link in her bio) exhibition and extended essay on Lift and Separate: Technology & the Bra for a fascinating insight into how we have looked after our boobs. 👯👯👯

This 1930s @Cadolle_official bra isn't just notable for its beautiful sleek design: its shoulder straps are adjustable *and* have elastic, design features that weren't really established until well into the 1950s. Find out what else is so significant about this bra in our latest exhibition, link in profile 💕

The 1908 Sahlin 'Perfect Form' is a fascinating piece of lingerie innovation: it combines the structure of a bust improver with a corset into one sleek garment. There are so many fascinating details to this garment, from the unusual garter clips to the buckle closures.

Find out more and explore this object in detail at our new online exhibition: 'Lift & Separate: Technology & The Bra' - it's completely free, find the link in our profile!

Beautiful Karolina wearing pieces from her @underpinningsmuseum Collection.
I'm forever fascinated by fashion eras, historic pieces, intricately designed clothing and lingerie. Every piece tells a story, modern designs too often lack true creation time, handmade statements, thought and skill in this way.
So I'm revisiting this shoot because I love it. .

I have to share this wonderful discovery! (If your a freak for vintage lingerie like me you'll understand) On the left is a picture I took in my room, on the right is a picture I came across on the underpinning museum site. Only difference is I still have the original garters with red ribbons still in perfect condition. Found at decades at a reasonable price but still spent my food money on it. I'm very in love with vintage lingerie and I'm so glad I got the back ground history on this BEAUT.... "The Warner's Merry Widow 'Cinch Bra' is an utterly iconic 1950s lingerie style. I used to think that the original adverts were airbrushed, but the cut really gives that incredible cinched shape"

The Warner's Merry Widow 'Cinch Bra' is an utterly iconic 1950s lingerie style. I used to think that the original adverts were airbrushed, but the cut really gives that incredible cinched shape. Head to the online collection to find out more about this amazing piece and lots of other new additions!
