Floral High Waisted Lingerie Set: c/o Simply Be. Hair Scarf: Vintage. Glasses: Specsavers.
I've been meaning to post about Plus Size Vintage inspired underwear for quite some time! It's something I feel like I'm always on the hunt for as it's hard to find cute retro inspired vintage lingerie to fit a bigger body! As my tastes when it comes to fashion are quite often favouring towards times gone by, the same goes for my underwear. There is nothing more than I love than a full high waisted brief but so often they can be very basic and not all that pretty! Day to day I'm perfectly happy with this but from time to time particularly when I'm wearing my full vintage get up I like to know my underwear is equally as cute but most importantly comfortable! I'm lucky that if you look at Simply Be currently they have a number of pieces in lingerie that have an adorable vintage twist from corset styled bra's to the sweetest high waisted briefs. You can see some of my picks here, here and here.
In this cute as a button floral set I wear a bra size 38DD and knickers in a UK20 and I'd say they're true to size. I've worn this set for afternoons out and while running errands and it's comfortable and doesn't really irritate me which often sets not made from cotton can do. I like a good high waist pair of knickers to wear with my high waisted skirts and I think these certainly do the job without feeling like I'm wearing hardcore shape wear. I styled this lingerie set to it's full vintage effect with my token retro red lip, some 1950s eyeliner flicks and my cat eye glasses. I also decided to add one of my many vintage chiffon headscarves to my hair and set my fringe in a Bettie Bang something I'm still coming to grips with while I'm trying to grow out my fringe! It's at that stage where it is constantly annoying me! I also filmed a little video for my YouTube Channel of this look which you can see below!
