Ladies, set aside a good chunk of time to browse Miss Mole’s pages and pages of supremely feminine, figure-enhancing, swing, rockabilly and silver screen bombshell clothing because you are going to need it.
Miss Mole presents us with a conglomeration of many different brands, some of them very well-known, like Bettie Page, and others less famous, which helps to set them apart from others. True, it may be possible to purchase some items at other locations but this shop puts a priority on originality, quality and exclusivity so that every hard-core retro-chick can find the perfect outfit for her. Sizes come in a range from XS to XL with a detailed sizing chart listing the chest, waste, hip and length measurements of each one so that every lovely lady can find her perfect fit and become even lovelier.
Whether you are a sailor-style bathing cutie or a sexy, skin-tight, bombshell dress kind of gal you can find ample options to suit your look and help you look more ample. Just a sample listing of their fabrics include cheetah prints, pin stripes, polka dots, cherries and solids and they don’t just sell clothing. At Miss Mole you can find fascinators, bad-ass purses, hair clips, belts and brooches.
Their selection is broad, their quality top-notch yet their regular prices are completely affordable and that is before their reduced offers. Their super-super-sale section has pages and pages of clothes, accessories and more with their prices sliced from 20% to 50%. Even better, it can be shopped from on any day of the year.

With both ready-made and custom items available, this shop features alternative brands like Glamour Bunny, Pin up Couture, Valkyrie and Velda Lauder plus off-the-rack lingerie and Nina Young’s own handmade brand Bite Me! Couture. Providing burlesque outfits at reasonable prices with a small but knowledgeable staff, they provide hassle-free, one-stopping shopping for all your glamour-puss needs.
Nina, who was originally an avid a member of the London gothic scene, began sewing her doll’s clothes from leftover fabric scraps at the age of eight. She continued to develop her skills and later successfully sold her own custom, handmade, original design bone-top and lace corsets to her high school chums for party money. After finishing her education, she spent time as a seamstress for Homberg’s Theatrical Costumiers in Leeds, England but was earning her bread and butter in IT. Fortunately, she was seduced by the burlesque world after watching a Miss Beeby performance in an Amsterdam supper club. Inspired, she returned to her beloved sewing machine, began designing her own burlesque costumes and set up the Love Burlesque boutique. An enterprising spirit, she now not only hand sews her Bite Me! Couture items, she also shares her skills with others, offering classes from her home base in the Netherlands on basic sewing, sewing from commercial patterns and on the art of creating original and custom patterns.
Love Burlesque’s online shop has a broad spectrum of handmade and specially selected items available: pasties, tassels, over-bust and under-bust corsets, waist-cinchers, frilly knickers, and bordello shoes plus dresses, skirts, tops, shrugs and jackets, fascinators, wigs and more. Very affordable, their most expensive custom items cap at £250, while ready-made products range from £20 to £60. Based in Worthing, UK and the Netherlands, Love Burlesque accepts only PayPal, delivers worldwide. They ship in-stock items within one day and custom items within 7 to 14 days; shipping costs vary with weight and delivery location. With a customer friendly money-back guarantee, un-worn items (excluding custom orders and undergarments) may be returned within seven days of receipt for full refund or exchange.

What Katie Did
Ms. Halford became enamored with the glamour of vintage fashions as a teenager and found it easy to acquire authentic retro clothing but could find very little vintage lingerie to help fill her outfits out, so she began to design her own. Post University Ms. Halford, who never wears trousers, worked for several years as a designer in a London fetish shop where she was inspired to follow her own unique fashion vision by opening her very own luxury lingerie boutique.
What Katie Did originally sold only seamed stockings like the ones Katie herself wore every day but their product line soon expanded to all varieties of lingerie, shape wear and corsets plusanything else that caught Ms. Halford’s fancy.
Named after a favorite children’s book, What Katie Did’s followers can now purchase everything from feminine white lace undergarment sets to fetishist-a steel-boned leather corsets and all styles between at their online shop, their Ebay boutique or directly from their stalls at weekenders like the Helmsby Rockabilly or Rhythm Riots. Describing her design style as “50s Goth” for its darker-than-Doris-Day feel, Katie’s lingerie is deliciously racy, oozing suggestive pin up girl glamour without a trace of seediness.
Her ‘Striptease’ tie-side knickers and bralettes are naughty yet glamorous, her cheetah-print ‘Josephine’ set is pure vintage sex kitten and her ‘Hollywood’ line is straight-up 1930s starlet. Ms. Halford, who confesses to being an impatient seamstress, creates simple patterns that can be fabricated quickly by a skilled hand without compromising on quality or fit, and will consistently deliver alluring wasp-waists and lusciously generous curves to each body they grace.
What Katie Did ships worldwide with most orders arriving 3 to 10 days from when they were placed, no matter where your location. Orders can be placed online or by telephone and payments are accepted via PayPal and most major credit cards, which will be charged in UK pounds sterling.
