If You Want To Pamper Yourself Wear Vintage Lingerie


If all you've ever worn is modern lingerie you will be absolutely amazed and thrilled when you put on your very first piece of vintage nylon lingerie. The feel of vintage nylon cannot be compared to any other fabric, the smooth body pleasing feel is unequaled. In the world of vintage clothing lingerie is the most intimate category and it is the subject of this article. Today vintage sellers consider clothing through the 1980s to be vintage, not everyone agrees. We will be talking about lingerie from the 1950s through the 1970s. If you are lucky you may find fabulous nylon creations from the 1950s but most of your finds will be from the 1960s and 1970s. It's possible to find nylon lingerie made today but if you compare the quality of the fabric and workmanship of the garment to vintage, the superiority of vintage is unmistakable. We are accustomed to polyester lingerie and some vintage lingerie from the 1960s and 1970s will be polyester. Many of those items came from large chain stores who specialized in inexpensive copies of quality lingerie.

By now you can tell I'm not fond of polyester although polyester with a silk finish does a fairly good job. Silk is not my primary interest in vintage fabric but I find the feel of vintage silk to be absolutely delicious. Rayon is another wonderful vintage fabric but today we focus on vintage nylon lingerie. You will develop favorite vintage fabrics as you familiarize yourself with vintage lingerie using your sense of touch. Of course there is more to learning about vintage lingerie than just the delight of touch. Once you know you want to wear vintage nylon lingerie because of how it feels you will find lots of other reasons to love these treasures from another era. You may end up collecting and wearing only lingerie made by a certain maker from the past. Vanity Fair is one of the most well known but as you do some research you will find there are hundreds of brands, some were small companies only in business for a short time. The major labels are most likely the brands you will encounter. An entire article could be written about vintage labels so I'll only mention a few you will likely come across. Van Raalte is a quality label and almost as well known as Vanity Fair. Other labels you may find are Movie Star, Artemis, Munsingwear, Luxite, Kayser, Gotham Gold Stripe, Barbizon, Kickernick, Wonder Maid, Mojud, Rovel, Val Mode, Seamprufe and Aristocraft. This list is by no means complete, it's just the ones I could think of quickly. The older labels will be embroidered, you can see the threads on the back side of the label, older Vanity Fair labels are a good example. Just like the brand names are a subject too long for an article, so too is a description of labels. The older full slips will have metal adjustor hardware on the straps, newer full slips will have plastic adjustors. In this instance newer could mean anywhere from the late 1960s depending on when a company switched to plastic.

A good garment to begin with is either a slip or a gown because these are readily available. You might want to visit a vintage store so you can learn to recognize vintage lingerie. The label is a good indicater, the older the garment the more likely it will not be a printed label where the letters wash away in time. Speaking of washing, do not ever put vintage lingerie in the washing machine, never never in the washing machine or the dryer. How to care for your lingerie deserves an entire article to properly cover the subject. For now your lingerie will be safe with a quick dip in sudsy water and 2 rinses will keep your vintage lingerie perfect for many years. Drip drying your lingerie will make it smooth and ready to wear with no ironing. Hang your slip or gown on a plastic hanger over the shower head and let it drip dry. Panties or half slips can be dried on a skirt hanger that has plastic clips, if metal touches lingerie you run the risk of rust.

Vintage sizes are not all uniform but then neither is the sizing of modern clothing. For a full slip or nightgown the size usually corresponds to your bra size. If you wear a size 34 bra you would wear a size 34 full slip or gown. Nylon tricot full slips and gowns usually have a built in stretch of approximately 2" so fit is fairly easy. Half slip fit is determined by waist and hip sizes and are sized Small, Medium or Large, usually if the waist fits the hips will fit. Panties today are still sized with the same numbers as vintage but you should know your measurements and carry a cloth tape measure with you when you shop. Most collectibles are just to hang on the wall or set on a table to be admired. Vintage lingerie can be enjoyed every day and will last for years since you know how long it's already been around.

By now I hope you are excited enough to want to know where you can find these marvelous treasures. I would make your first stop a vintage shop and if the salesperson is knowledgeable and talkative you will be in luck. You should also check any thrift stores in your area, some will have actual vintage and you may come across a real find. Searching for vintage lingerie takes some effort but the time is well spent when you find a great garment. I suggest the physical shopping to acquaint you with actual garments but you will also want to do research on the internet. Once you have an idea of quality and condition you will want to try online stores and of course eBay. You need to be wary of any garment you cannot physically see and touch. This is why it's vital you start by going where you can examine actual vintage lingerie. When you buy from a vintage lingerie website choose a site that has been in business online for several years. Read the descriptions carefully, a garment that is described as excellent should not have any flaws. A seller that supplies a lot of information about an item should be presumed to be knowledgeable. Emailing a seller about a specific item is a good way to find out more about the item. The sellers answer will give you an idea of how much you may be valued as a customer.

Many lingerie garments have survived over the years and the information about vintage lingerie is extensive. I hope this short article piques your interest and you take the time to appreciate the beauty and quality of vintage lingerie.

Vintage Home Accessories - Why the Vintage Look is So Popular


Vintage style home interiors have become increasingly popular in the UK and abroad, with exquisite decorative touches and vintage home accessories.

So what is it about this look that homeowners love so much?

First of all, the cost is one of the most attractive elements of choosing a vintage look. It can easily be achieved on a small budget, so those of us who can't afford wrought iron furniture and chandeliers need not despair! There are a whole load of creative little tricks that can be used to save money, while still producing a stunning and stylish home environment.

With a timeless element, vintage is a look that will last. Unlike some modern looks that require specific styles of appliances and accessories, the vintage look is eclectic and can easily be added to over time. A few new items added to it can make a wonderful impact when you want a bit of a change - rather than having to get rid of last year's items.

It's also hugely about re-using and re-vamping, because mixing old and new is the way to achieve the perfect vintage home. You can salvage old furniture and spruce the room up with some elegant decorations in a vintage style - which is not only manageable in terms of cost, but environmentally beneficial too.

While a vintage look does require a certain amount of work in reviving old items, it can also be a lot of fun. Odd chairs can be painted to match each other; or even to mismatch! A wood stain or a coat of white or pastel paint can make all the difference to shabby dining furniture or a kitchen counter.

Another lovely element to the vintage style is that it can be truly personalised. It's the collection and placement of items collected from your life, complemented by subtle decorative accessories.

Delightfully, vintage home accessories are often not only beautiful, but functional as well. Because the whole look harks back to a time when household items were built to last and be decorative as well as useful, kitchen accessories and items such as racks and hooks are at the core of vintage beauty.

A vintage country look is perhaps one of the most pleasing and easy to achieve. A mix of colourful patterns alongside white or light painted furniture will bring this clean, fresh look to your home.

Creative tricks - such as using remnant fabrics to re-cover chair seats, complementing bright vases with dried flowers and repainting old wicker furniture - can be used alongside a few beautiful vintage home accessories, such as picture frames and kitchen items, to create a lovely eclectic room. Once you start looking, it's easy to find beautiful ginghams, faded florals and chintzes.

Vintage is a timeless, cosy style of home decor - using delicate decorative touches, it can brighten up a home without costing the earth. It also has a personal touch, with no two vintage style homes ever looking the same.

Just remember not to clutter rooms too much - and always keep an eye out for vintage home accessories to add to your look.

One big impediment to the modern vintage shopper is an inability to find a reliable and quality purveyor of vintage clothing. It is difficult to find something that you want when you really have no idea where to look! But in actuality, there are many reliable places to find vintage clothes. This guide will explain how to accurately seek out and identify quality vintage clothes. Whether you want a dress, shirt, or designer bag, vintage sellers ought to have what you want.

When you are looking for vintage clothes, it's important to scrutinize the quality of the item. Keep your eyes peeled for snags in fabric and other intrinsic manufacturing errors. Also look out for stains and tears, which may often be located in the lining of clothing. Damaged clothing is much cheaper, but the obvious downside is that it is damaged, and not as attractive to the wearer. Sellers will almost always mark down clothing that is damaged unless it is a famous designer piece. Consider the age of your vintage clothing and weigh that against how you wear it. Old clothing is frequently fragile, and you don't want something you have paid dearly for to fall apart. However, most clothing being sold is of good quality and sturdy build. In fact, much vintage clothing was made with more skill and care than contemporary clothing!

Local flea markets and swap meets are convenient repeat-sellers of vintage clothing. Sometimes colleges or other organizations host fundraising flea markets for their students. This is a great opportunity for you as a buyer. Individual sellers will come together at these types of events and display their inventory. At these events, keep your eyes peeled for familiar names - things with labels like "Dior," "Pucci." and "Schiaparelli" will fetch hefty prices on resale. Designer names in general will sell for high prices, especially vintage items. Vintage nightdresses are also easy to find, attractive, and cheap. Many sellers own their own vintage stores. Look around your neighborhood for hidden independent vintage stores. Specialty stores may be a bit pricier but generally have consistency in the quality and quantity of their items.

The online market is a painless and easy way to find and purchase clothing. Most real-life vintage stores have online counterparts, where you can purchase something that you saw in the store. The internet auction site, eBay, has a vastly diverse selection of things. Vintage hats, gloves, shawls, dresses, skirts, purses, and even opera glasses are available, in addition to a host of other items. Bidding can sometimes drive the price of items up very high. However, with a skilled eye and discerning bidding strategy, you will more often than not be able to buy a cute item for less than thirty dollars. For the purchaser who does not enjoy playing the bidding game, many sellers offer a "buy it now" automatic purchase option.

With these tips, you'll be sure to find yourself the nice vintage garment you were looking for.
