Open Bottom Girdles: Sexy Body-Slimming Shapers With Hot Pin-Up Style!

The Kiss Me Kate Girdle, available at Upstagedleeds.co.uk

Open bottom girdles are a fabulous pin-up shaping secret! They smooth out panty lines and cinch the waist into beautiful retro curves. Much more comfortable than a full corset and much more useful than a skimpy modern garter belt, these undergarments are a must-have for vintage gals!

Over the years the traditional open bottom girdle of the 50s became smaller and smaller until it morphed into the skimpy useless garter belt of the modern day.

While modern garter belts from stores like Victoria’s Secret are often only an inch or so wide and fit in a thin band around the hips, the more traditional open bottom girdle stretches all the way from waist to upper thighs with beautiful results. These girdles accentuate the waist, give you a long lean line, and look especially great on plus-size figures!

Here are some of our favorite open bottom girdles from around the web. Give one a try if you haven’t already! Read the rest of this entry

New Burlesque Stockings: These Ultra-Vivid Colors Are Perfect For The Stage!

As a burlesque beauty, you already know that more is more! If in doubt, more feathers, more glitter, more fur, more sequins, and more rhinestones is always better than less!

But surprisingly there’s one item of clothing many of us on-stage starlets usually don’t enhance at all: our stockings. And that’s a big mistake.

Here are 5 beautiful styles of seamed stockings in ultra-vivid shades that are perfect under the stagelights! Consider adding one to your next act, especially if legs are the focus of your performance!

1)  Gigi Vintage-Style Scarlet Stockings (Pictured at top of post) Molten-hot red with black seams make one devilish combination!
