The perfect reproduction lingerie to team with true vintage lingerie

Pip & Pantalaimon

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.

Have you seen our new range of corsets?

Available in waist measurements 23-39" and in three different colours. 

Fan lacing is designed to make the corset much easier to get on and lace up on your own. Simply loosen the lacing at the back, put the corset on and fasten the busk at the front as normal, then evenly pull the two waist ribbons outwards away from you to simultaneously fasten both sides, top and bottom at the same time! The waist ribbon sliders are designed in such a way that they won’t loosen or unfasten while you are wearing the corset.
