I’m in the process of having a massive clear out and I’m initially getting rid of a few bits of brand new, never worn vintage style lingerie, all with their tags attached. They’re just taking up room in my wardrobe and it seems silly to hang on to them. I’ve put these few bits up on eBay, and have already sold a What Katie Did Maitresse bullet bra, but still have a few things left. I’ve also got a few bits of vintage lingerie, mainly 1960s nightwear, to list, as well as a couple of pieces of true vintage clothing (one is already up) and several pieces of reproduction vintage clothing, including Vivien of Holloway, so keep an eye out for those too.
If you’re interested in any of the ones I’ve put below, just click on the images to go through to eBay. I have listed them as UK delivery only but if you’re overseas and are really interested in purchasing something just let me know in the comments below and I’ll switch it to International.
Kiss Me Deadly Emerald Jezebel Bra And Knickers Set – made in a petrol blue/green taffeta and black spotty stretch mesh. The bra is fully padded at the front. The knickers are high waisted and sit just under the bra line. They feature very long taffeta ties that tie around the waist at the back.
The bra is a size Large (I’m a high street size 32DD and it fits perfectly on the bust but is a little loose at the back). Knickers are a size Large (waist 30 – 32 / hips 40 – 42).
Kiss Me Deadly Black Vargas Dress Shapewear – in black stretch power mesh and with lace across the bust area. This is a size 34DD and is slightly too big for me around the back, hence the sale. This was and still is a very sought after Kiss Me Deadly piece of shapewear because it creates killer curves and holds everything in place.
What Katie Did Fetique Cone Bra, Knickers And Girdle – made in black satin and black stretch power mesh with red zigzag stitching detail throughout. The bra is size 32DD, the knickers are size 12 and the girdle is size 14. I’m a dress size 10-12 and these fit me well. What Katie Did’s sizing varies from piece to piece, hence why the knickers and girdle are different sizes.
I have never worn this set due to the extreme cone shape of the bra (I just wasn’t confident enough!). The cups are fully padded so always keeps their shape, however this gives it a true vintage pointed shape.
Shell Belle Couture Bluebird Lounging Set of Camisole and Shorts – made in a beautiful pale petrol blue 100% silk, this is true luxury. The colour is very hard to capture and both the model photo and my photos don’t quite show it right, but trust me it’s beautiful.
The styling is very vintage with gathering at the bottom on the camisole and around the sides of the shorts. The shorts tie at the back waist with long ties and leave a cheeky opening just below. The size is medium but I would say it’s a UK size 8-10. I’m a 10-12 and the shorts are a little tight around the hips, hence why I’ve never worn it.
True Vintage Late 1940s Spotty Dress – (excuse the dreadful picture of me!). A handmade late 1940s New Look style dress in a chambray type fabric in dark Airforce blue with a white spotty print. It comes complete with the original matching belt and belt loops. There’s also original shoulder pads fitted inside to give that fabulous 1940s look. The fabric is cut on the bias so has a little bit of stretch.
The condition is very good with a bit of handmade stitching here and there where the seams have come apart but nothing that’s noticeable. However, the shoulder pads are a bit grubby. This was purchased from a reputable vintage seller but it never really fitted me correctly. I always intended to make adjustments to it but as it’s sat in my wardrobe ever since I bought it, I thought it would be best to sell it on to someone who will wear it.
Size is roughly a UK size 12-14. Measurements taken laid flat and doubled: Bust – 39″, Waist – 32″, Hips – Free, Length from neck to waist – 16″, Total length – 46.5″
