Here are two favorite pieces from my vintage lingerie collection. 

First is a pair of 1930:s silk shorts. They are a true wonder! The label with the former owners name is still stitched on it: "Vera Bolinder". They have the cutest pattern with small flowers and a tight waist that closes with two buttons on each side. The length is to the beginning of the thigh. It's not often you find a 1930:s piece, and I got my hand on them at an antique fair last winter in Stockholm. I have shown them here before.

Then we have the classic vintage bra with visible seams. It also has delicate lace and no shoulder straps, which I love. This kind came to town in the 1930:s. As a soft filler they used sand, which you can still notice when you have been holding one in your hand. They are quite rare, especially if you want to find one that fits you and is still in good condition. So if you don't feel like going looking for a vintage one you can still make them yourself. On Va-Voom Vintage you will find great instructions on how to do it yourself! 

I was lucky when I opened an old suitcase at another vintage fair and found some laying around and for a remarkable price. I think I paid like 5 dollars, in vintage boutiques you may find them for 20 dollars or more.
