2012 – A Return to the Classics!

2012 is going to be another great year for lingerie! We’ve been enjoying sexy burlesque styles and bold dark colors but starting this spring we also get to enjoy the classic beauty of woman and lingerie. I was so excited when I started flipping through magazines and runway photos. I saw pages of beautifully structured undergarments, high-end nylon stockings and thigh-highs in simple colors like white, ivory and beige. This look is more like a tribute to the things that inspired me to love fashion, art and beauty in the first place. Secrets In Lace has understood the importance of knowing what is beautiful and what is just a fad. Clothes may change but woman still like to look and feel glamorous. That’s why I am thrilled to announce this back to the basics idea which SIL has had all along!

Fully Restocked Romance Babydoll!

Valentine’s Day is coming up and if you haven’t already taken my advice, it’s time to take a second and get a romantic gift for that special someone.  How about our fully restocked and ever so popular Romance Babydoll? We named this cute babydoll "Romance" for good reason – it’s made of soft satin charmeuse and we selected a beautiful scalloped lace trim to adorn this lovely style. It’s easy fit for all sizes and has a sexy side slit. The shoulder strap has a bit of elastic for comfort and is adjustable for the perfect fit. Sheer net g-string is included!

Recreate the Looks of Super-Hot Celebrities

A little while ago, we invited our clients to submit photos of them modeling Secrets InLace.    The turnout of beautiful vintage lingerie photos was amazing!  So I thought it would be fun to see which of our favorite celebrities have posed in vintage lingerie lately. I found these photos to be a little different but fabulous none the less.  If any of you models, photographers and stylists out there were looking for inspiration for your next photo-shoot, maybe these photos will get your creative juices flowing.  I also suggested some SIL styles that would fit in nicely with each setting. They aren’t right on the nose because we wouldn’t want to knock off the photos completely. I hope you like them!

Super Sexy Cabaret Plunge Bra in Pink!!!

The Cabaret Bra is the ultimate plunge pushup bra! It's lightly padded with underwired demi cups to provide definition and lift. We set the straps wide so it lifts, shapes and creates a beautiful décolletage. For an extra daring look the sheer top cup can be tucked in to convert the bra to a shelf.

Valentine’s Day Looks

In order to make Valentine’s Day shopping much easier I found three spectacular outfits that look amazing on all different sizes of ladies AND they are in the traditional Valentine’s Day colors!

Our Bettie PageBeaded Lace Waist Cincher is beautifully decorated and flatters the waist.  The Bettie Page Bullet Bra outfits it perfectly.  Smaller chested ladies can wear the Padded Bullet Bra. Complete with Retro Sheer Panty in black!

Our Colette Waist Cincher in another style that brings in the waist and smooth’s the midsection.  You can also snuggle up in our sheer Elegant Chiffon Robe.  Coordinate with our Coquette Satin Bullet Bra.

Our Intrigue Shelf Bra is not only beautiful but is supportive for larger chested ladies.  It looks amazing with our Intrigue Garter Belt and Retro Sheer Panty.  Add our Elegant Chiffon Robe for an extra layer of comfort.

Dita Von Teese Loves SIL

We vintage lingerie fans are quite fortunate right now!  As retro underwear continues to be very fashionable and sexy, so does the worlds more voluptuous pin up models.  After all, who better to fill out these sexy undergarments then the divas with the sexy curves? There are so many gorgeous ones from around the world in all kinds of shapes, sizes and hair colors.  We all have our favorites but it’s obvious to me the long reigning modern queen of pin-up, glamour and burlesque is Dita VonTeese. She’s contributed to bringing vintage lingerie to the status it is today thanks to her beauty, boldness, originality and of course, good taste.  So it should be of no surprise to you that Dita loves SIL! After all, she is always wearing stockings and we have the best.  In fact she even collaborated with us at SIL to design a line of stockings that are simply amazing.  So if you haven’t already, why not check out what Miss Pin-Up herself loves!

Happy New Year! Check Out Our Criss Cross Garter Belt!

Happy 2012 everybody! I’m always excited about the meaning of a New Year – New Year’s Resolutions, new opportunities, maybe even a new and improved me. In 2011, I resolved to lose weight and I lost 30 pounds! Even though I met my goal, I still like to wear SIL products that flatter my figure. One of my favorites is our vintage criss cross garter belt. The criss cross garter belt is fabricated of light control powermesh to smooth the hips and flatten the tummy. The criss cross front is not only a fantastic design to look at but also adds even more control around the waist.
