retro lingerie

Looking for a new way to revamp your lingerie style? Rather than hoping for the latest trend to come out, why not take inspiration from the past? Retro and classic lingerie looks are some of the most flattering and easy to wear. Once you give these a go for yourself, you’re sure to fall completely in love with them.

Here are just six that you should try for yourself when you next buy some new lingerie!

1.  Bustiers

Perhaps the most classic of lingerie looks, the simple bustier should be a staple of every lady’s closet. Slipping into a stunning black bustier paired with some matching briefs is a surefire way to make you feel ultra feminine. This is a style that has always been at the forefront of fashion in the lingerie world and it’s clear to see why.

With its figure-hugging shape and flattering fit, it’s plain to see why so very many women out there are obsessed with this particular look. Why not shake things up a tad? You could try a color that you’ve never thought of before now – like a sultry little nude number.

2.  Longline bras

If you’re not ready to dive in headfirst and opt for a full bustier, this could be the option for you. Investing in a lingerie piece that finds the perfect balance between a standard bra and a bustier could be the answer. Well, if that’s the case, say hello to the classic look that is the plunge longline bra!

The underbust design with supportive boning means that this is sure to be one of the most comfortable bras that you ever wear. As though that weren’t exciting enough, there’s the fact that many pieces like this one come with an expert level of detailing and design. The longline trend is one that has stood the test of time and is sure to be on trend for many years to come.

3.  Highwaist briefs

As flattering as they are appealing, highwaist briefs are a look that keep rolling back into fashion time and time again. When paired with the right bra set, these particular panties tend to scream retro style in a way that you just can’t ignore. The thing that you absolutely need to remember about highwaist briefs is that they give you comfort while still looking fit for pretty much any occasion that may occur.

Of course, you can get this style of lingerie in almost any color and it’s worth checking out what’s out there. The beauty is oh-so-often in the detailing, and so you should be sure to look for pieces that have this extra level of intricacy.

4.  Babydolls

There are few types of lingerie as wonderfully feminine as a babydoll. These types of outfits are real throwbacks to a time that we may all have forgotten. That doesn’t mean that we should forget the trend, though. At least, not when it looks so gorgeous. Popping on one of these beautiful things under your clothes will make you feel utterly fabulous.

What’s more, there are so many different styles that you can explore here. From a gloriously vibrant grape colored piece to something a little more subtle and understated, there are just so many varieties from which to choose. Take a look at the collection for yourself; you’re sure to find something wonderful that fits the bill.  

5.  Feminine and classic briefs

Sure, there’s nothing particularly wrong with the standard black panties look, but you may well wish to experiment a little now and then. Retro style is all about making sure that every single piece of your lingerie is chic and on trend. That means paying attention to every piece and making sure that it has the right look for you.

So, how can you mix things up and ensure that your briefs do all the talking? Well, there are a couple of things that you may well wish to try. For instance, choosing briefs adorned with wonderfully cute floral patterns could well be the right way to go. Equally, you may find that investing in a few pairs of hipster briefs is enough to give your underwear drawer a refreshing touch of pizazz. Go ahead. Go wild.

6.  Balconet bras

Finally, the flirty, yet fun balconet bra is a classic look that every lady out there can rock. Balconet bras come in a whole range of colors, tones, and materials. So, whatever you fancy, you’re sure to be able to find something that suits your sense of style and personality. The fit of this style of piece means that you will get a glorious shape and that it will accentuate your silhouette in a new and beautiful way. Stunning!

So, are you ready to seriously rock the retro look? There are so many different ways in which to pay homage to some of the most classic looks that you may be spoiled with choices. Try out some of these looks for yourself and you’re sure to feel absolutely beautiful in no time at all. After all, looking fabulous will never, ever go out of style.
