Those looking for true vintage lingerie often stumble upon a few issues in their search for the perfect pieces; Vintage lingerie comes up small, often very small. Women were generally smaller in the 1940’s and 1950s’. This means that if you do come across the perfect piece, you’ve then go to hope it’s the correct size for you. The average UK dress size is now somewhere around a UK14~16, you’d be extremely lucky to find the perfect piece in your size. Another issue is deterioration. Elastane doesn’t last forever; garments lose their stretch over many many decades. The elastic can go brittle and stretch but never return to its original size.
In accordance with government guidelines; we’re still creating fabulous lingerie right here from our home studio in Market Harborough, UK.
For us, being a relatively isolated company already, not that much has changed.
The website is still fully open and we’re still making orders and shipping out internationally. But, for the next few weeks, we will be posting orders only on Mondays and Fridays. When we do post items out, we use a faceless Drop-and-Go service too.
We’re satisfied that we can continue to operate safely within the government guidelines.
We hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe during this time of uncertainty.
