Several miles away from Spanx, their retro-styled Vargas long line girdle shapes exquisitely, does double duty as a garter with six metal straps and is deliciously decorated with large black satin bows. At £50.00, their Cherie Teddy in Peach is high-quality; all satin and lace, in no way innocent yet many leagues distant from trashy. All of their items and collections exude a gritty authenticity with a hint of danger while remaining sensuous, glamorous and slightly intellectual, like a combination of Mata Hari, Grace Kelly and Bettie Page plus a little something extra to make them completely unique.

If you’re a sensual pinup, fiery vixen or stylish rockabella, you know one of the essentials to chic retro style is wearing the right undergarments that emphasize your curves in all the right places. Revival provides their voluptuous consumers the ability to generate the look and silhouette synonymous with the decades known for nostalgic style.

Designed and constructed by David Silkstone in Nottingham from beginning to end, Revival Lingerie is lead by one of the most reputable intimate clothing manufacturers in the British undergarment and corsetry market. The label has a broad range of high quality undergarments that accommodates a woman’s body regardless of shape or size, and they really are necessary additions to any retro wardrobe.

The pieces within this gorgeous brand give you the foundation to accentuate your body and to ensure everything stays upright and firm in their line of bras, girdles, shapewear, suspender belts, briefs or corselettes. You want your 50s inspired wiggle dresses and pencil skirts to fit your body well, and Revival Lingerie provides the perfect support system. Don’t settle for traditional undergarments, which are often bland and don’t contribute any stylish elements to an outfit. This brand has taken ordinary intimate clothing to another level.

 Unlike plain and sensible undergarments, Revival Lingerie completes the pinup or burlesque look. Their pieces are designed in a high quality, retro-inspired aesthetic, and if you have the moxie in warmer weather, you might even wear these lovely pieces without hiding them.

There’s a number of Revival garments in classic, retro print and colors, like polka dots, blush pink, black and red, that would be easy to pair with high-waisted skirts or shorts and peep toe pinup heels.

Women from the 50s had it right, since they purposefully chose their undergarments in correlation with their outfits. Revival Lingerie has done just that — revived the idea of lingerie, and they’ve reminded us intimate pieces are useful outside the bedroom, too. The brand is continuously adding to their collection, so visit their website often for their latest designs!

Pin Up Undergarments

Pin Up Undergarments

For some women, pin up undergarments are just as important as the rest of the outfit when it comes to true pin up fashion. On the outside, a pin up girl appears perfectly composed, with a slightly sexy and innocent appeal, wearing styles inspired by fashion of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
