The New Vintage-Inspired Lingerie Styles Aren’t Your Gram’s Knickers

We always felt like the odd man out in the lingerie department, mostly because our penchant for tap pants and delicate brasseries was very much at odds with the G-string loving crowds that flocked around us. So we're now hoping that the crop of vintage-inspired and utterly feminine underthings that have hit the stores recently will turn the tides with its ethereal mix of wasp-waist corsets, featherweight chiffon rompers, and soft silk panties. And in the off-chance that the beloved panty floss still reigns dominant? We'll be happy to sit in our corner and enjoy the lion's share--clad in our favorite silk slip, of course.
