This probably won’t surprise you, but I look at a lot of
lingerie. And especially with the popularity of Mad Men, I look
at a lot vintage-inspired lingerie. Everyone lingerie company out
there is slapping a little bit of lace on a bra and a couple of
garters on a panty and calling it “retro,” “pin-up,” or
“burlesque.” But nobody, and I mean nobody, is doing vintage-
style lingerie like this.
I first posted about Dottie’s Delights in an Etsy round-up on
girdles and garter belts back in 2009, and I’ve been a fan of her
work ever since. This year’s collection brings all the talent and
potential I first saw three years ago together, and magnifies it
by a power of 10.
Not only are the pieces even more gorgeous in person (I had the
pleasure of seeing them at this year’s Designer Lingerie
Showcase), everything is so very, very vintage without looking
the least bit stuffy or tired or overdone. I own a quite a few
pointy bras and even more girdles, yet this collection has made
me excited about them all over again. If you’re going to splurge
on luxury, let it be this kind of luxury.
You can view the rest of the collection below and purchase from
Dottie’s Delights previous collection on the website. You can
also follow Dottie’s Delights on Facebook, Twitter, and
Instagram. What do you think of “The Magic Garden?” Are you as
excited about it as I am?
