Vintage Girdles create a fabulously glamorous look at a slimmed silhouette. Girdles fit tightly around the hips and lower torso area and are a great choice for your vintage lingerie look as they typically feature suspender belt straps which can hold up your stockings. They can create a smooth base shape under any pencil skirt or dress, to give you the confidence and support you need for those evening events, parties or proms, as well as bringing a sexy look to the bedroom afterwards. Girdles have a particular association with a vintage style, as they were an important garment for women in the 1920s through to around the 1960s. They helped to give that slim waistline that was highly fashionable in this time. Nowadays we of course wear our girdles much more safely than this, as we are aware of the health dangers to pulling the body into an unnatural shape. Vintage girdles were also very useful to keep suspenders held up, in a time when elastic was not as readily available.
