What lies beneath is often as important, if not more so, than what we wear on the outside. The support and structure of what underpins our garments makes all the difference to how things sit, hang and move.
With drawers and suitcases full of lingerie, from the simple to the sublime, I wanted to share with you all of the secrets you’ll need to finding the right pieces for you.
In addition to the usual Daily Outfit posts, I’ve been asked to share what happens underneath. How my waist can suddenly shrink, or how I get those clingy dresses to just sit right. I find a great pleasure in having the right underpinnings for the job, so I wanted to share my secrets and sources with you too. So today we’re introducing a new regular feature to Vintage Current; What Lies Beneath.
After a long cold winter, it is time to give my wardrobe a little boost. Although I don’t have a whole lot of cash to splash at the moment with these renovations going on, I happened to find a brilliant sale on Pleasure State lingerie at the Brand Smart Outlet in Melbourne. $20 a piece, with the full range of sizes available! This berry red set has the most vintage styling look about it of those in the White Label Collection, with the higher waist knickers, and the lace and bow details. This same style is available in a number of colour ways, including a super cute polka dot set!
