Peaches ‘n Cream: A Sexy Vintage Trend In Lingerie

The Sophia Corset from What Katie Did

All that was old is new again, as the saying goes. And that certainly rings true in today’s world of high-fashion lingerie.

Throughout the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, peach was the color of choice for the boudoir. Closer to flesh tones than white, but not at all drab (as “nude” fabrics always tend to be) peach silks and laces were elegant yet subtle…And thankfully, after disappearing for several decades, they’re now experiencing a comeback in a big way.

Whites and ivories are much lighter than any skin tone, leaving telltale outlines that can be seen through thin tops or dresses; yet peach is picture-perfect under clothes. Peach colored satin also lends a bit of a romantic vintage flair to otherwise tame underthings.

So what do you think? Is this a trend you can get behind? Or is it too subtle to really sex up a wardrobe?
