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.
The vintage Biscotti colour lace matches perfectly with our favourite Biscotti mesh, 6 steel suspender straps keep your stockings in place and exaggerated shaping lace panels enhance your silhouette while the key hole/hook-up back means you can wiggle into the girdle and fasten up to cinch in the waist
Designed to be worn with our Plush Biscotti Soft Bra and Classic Knicker.
The end of the year is a great time for reflection but the beginning or January 2020 also sees us celebrating our 5th birthday so this seems like a great time to look back on everything we’ve achieved in the last 12 months before setting our sights on further improvements and fabulous lingerie designs for the following 12 months!
This year we launched our Stocking Subscription club, the first of its kind to delivery you a pair of seamed stockings to your door every single month. The club has been running for around 6 months now and it’s constantly growing in popularity, making the perfect gift or just saving you the hassle of re-ordering stockings yourself. Simply tell us your stockings size and colour preference, or let us sent you a variety and we take care of the rest. Small enough to fit through your letter box too so there’s no need to worry about being in to receive them.
