I have recently started working for a different company in the city, and the ‘uniform’ is a lot stricter than my last job. I previously wore anything I wanted, which usually consisted of a circle skirt, a cardigan and thick belt, or something similar. My new job is a lot more corporate and requires a suit or a work dress.

Initially, when I went shopping for the appropriate clothing, I had a bit…

Choosing a good suspender belt

Choosing a good suspender belt

If you are new to the wonderful world of vintage inspired foundations, it is very easy to be lured in by unsuitable underwear. For ladies who wear or wish to wear good foundations on a regular basis, it is essential that you choose the right suspension, or your stockings will end up around your ankles or your suspender belt will cut into your body, causing lumps and bumps that wouldn’t otherwise…

Modern fan-laced girdles…do they exist?

Modern fan-laced girdles…do they exist?

alberto_vargas

Hi,

Love the site. And I love the retro girdles. I am attracted the bulkier styles, such as the fan-lace girdles, which I am keen to buy and wear.

My question is, how do they work under form fitting dresses? Do you wear a slip to stop the bits and bibs showing though? On a related issue, can you still buy them new from anywhere?

Best wishes,

Ann

Hi Ann!

Yes you can buy modern fan-laced girdles,…

Which size should I buy??

Which size should I buy??

Alberto_Vargas

Hi,

Thank you so much for this blog! Your article about being new to shapewear helped me a lot. My question is this: My measurements do not correspond with Rago’s size chart (38 waist, 41 hips). The closest size would be the 4XL with a 38 waist, 48 hips, or the next size up. First, I’ve never been categorized as a 4XL so that alone is daunting. Second, none of these sizes fit me.

What to do?

This awesomeness was drawn by one of my best friends, @sissi_issis . I met her in a bar in China when I was 19- she just came up to me and started talking to me in broken English and since then, she’s been like a sister to me. In the 8 years that I have known her she’s become an amazing artist, photographer, tattoo artist and fluent in 3 languages, amongst other things. I admire her so much and miss her all the time. Hopefully this bitch will come to Australia sometime huh Sissi?? Oioioioioioioi! Love you lots xxx

Corset question

Hi!

Firstly, I have to take a sec to get all fan girl on you. I LOVE your blog. The photos you post always look amazing.

I was wondering if you could please give me some advice on buying a corset. I was looking at some online and I realised that most stores were asking for a corseted waist measurement. What do you do when you don’t have much experience with corsets and don’t know what your…

Nude stockings are NOT just for your granny!

Nude stockings are NOT just for your granny!

When  I started on my ‘underwear journey’, my partner was very happy to buy me stockings, which of course made us both very happy. However, he would always ask me which colour I wanted, probably in the hope that since the last time he had asked me, I had become more open minded about trying out new colours, other than black. I only wanted black stockings, because in my opinion they were modern…

Cheap stockings for frequent wearers

Cheap stockings for frequent wearers

Alberto_Vargas

Hi Elinor,

I have a question about stockings. I’m a mother of two little daughters and its not easy to wear my stockings (What Katie Did retro seamed or Gio fully fashioned) more then 2-3 times. Sometimes I already have a run after just 1 time. Can you advise me in a more durable stocking? Because now its getting a bit expensive…

Thank you

Regards,

Chantal
