If you prefer to dance around in your martini glass rather than drink from it this Christmas, I might just have found the perfect lingerie collection for you. Von Follies by Dita Von Teese launched on StyleBop.com last month and is everything a budding burlesque star needs to twirl around their boudoir in. Dita’s collection stays true to her own signature style – each piece has a vintage feel and is designed to enhance and the feminine silhouette and make the wearer feel truly glamorous.
Bustiers, balconette bras, fitted chemises, high-waisted briefs and suspenders come in rich shades of red, black and nude with some lovely attention to detail as you might expect to find with this 1950s era of glamour – grosgrain and velvet ribbons, delicate eyelash lace and control mesh panels.
Whilst some of the collection is a little two ‘showy’ for me, the essence of Burlesque is clear and it’s quite a wonderfully opulent line of lingerie. There is a nice selection of brief shapes which I like – high cut, bikini and full – my favourite being the Black Satin Quilting High-Waisted Brief which comes with a matching corset.
