As always, when I'm bear-making, I neglect the lingerie site (and vice versa), although lingerie sales have been pretty good recently. I sold two of the mega-expensive pieces that I was moaning about in a previous post!
I seem to have hit a brick wall so far as bear-making goes, so I thought I'd spend some time on the lingerie.
I have listed 10 full-slips in a bust size 32 (on the basis that, with my clunky, hand-built website, its easiest if I only list one type of lingerie, in one size, at any one time). There are some really lovely items: there are always loads of tiny sizes when you're collecting vintage lingerie - so although I'd rather my site wasn't known for size zero lingerie, listing tiny sizes is an effective way of showing a particularly wide range of styles.
A strapless slip, by Wonder Maid. I've had a few of these - they are lovely. I wish I could wear them - although not being particularly supportive, I doubt anyone above a B cup can get away with it - even with a bra underneath.
Anyway, in spite of the thin fabric, and the non-adjustable straps, some of them are really pretty - certainly, there's a much wider range of colours and patterns than you would get if you bought a typical lot of American vintage lingerie.
And a Fischer slip! If you're into vintage lingerie, and you have never seen a Fischer satin slip, I would recommend them. The rayon satin is wonderful - really heavy and silky - and they are always really well fitted.
Anyway, I just thought I would share some of the new items with you. I have just realised that I don't have a link to either of my websites on this blog (duh!). I will off to do it now!
