I am one of those ladies that actually detest underwear. However, and obviously, it is a necessary evil. But there is nothing better than whipping off a bra at the end of the day and sighing with relief........
Nevertheless, I own quite a lot of vintage undergarments. Bralette's, corsets, high waisted panties, a plethera of bullet bras. And they must be Deadstock vintage as the repo garments just don't do the same 'thing'...IE: give you the right shape and keep the 'bits' IN.
In some cases tho, undergarments are a must, and in the case of a plain color fabric & drop waisted dress, very necessary!
The all in one body suit in the photo above is a vintage, upcycled with fresh red dye piece. It has a bullet shaped cup, corseted waist and little tight shorts with suspender straps. It also has a little opening so a lady can visit the bathroom without getting totally naked! (Disclaimer: I actually haven't used this as the thought of it is very off-putting......what if I can't wee straight???? So I just hang on till I get home...cough, cough.) The end result is a smooth outline with slightly nipped in waist.
For something similar, Rago makes something that looks almost the same called the Rago Full Body Shaper Girdle Shapette Long Leg Body Briefer.
Onto the dress. It's from one of my favoutite vintage sellers, ForeverLovelyVintage. I have purchased several times through her and my clothing always arrives super quick and freshly laundered.
