“If I were to pick just one trend of lingerie to highlight, it would be, without question, the vintage sensation,” says SG member and lingerie expert Sauda. “High waisted knickers, longline bras, and basques are in very high demand. Retro and vintage lingerie flatters all body types; less hour-glass figured women get a significant boost from the accentuating fit and seam details, and curvy girls are showcased just as Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Sophoia Loren, and Brigitte Bardot were in their prime. ”
Here’s a selection of the best vintage style lingerie that Suicide Girls are putting on – and taking off – this season.
“The ultra feminine styles and fabrics are reminiscent of an era of high glamour,” says Sauda. “This is underscored in the to-die-for styling of period TV shows such as Mad Men. Less revealing designs can be more flirtatious and teasing than tiny stripper thongs. The market is taking notice too. Frederick’s of Hollywood launched their ICON collection this year, which is based directly on their original designs from the 1950s. On the indie end of the spectrum, ToadLillie offer stunning examples of handcrafted lingerie.”
