Vintage Olga lingerie, bringing back romance and femininity again. What a fabulous RARE treat I have for your lingerie collection boudoir trousseau and a true little treasure to cherish for many years to come. I never dreamed I would find a complete 2 piece set. Since I began in 1999 here on eBay, I have only had the opportunity to sell one of these and it was just the nightgown only. Currently up for auction here:

Is this you think Liz Taylor??? Nahhhh, can't be. What do you think? I dreamed I played Cleopatra. I believe this to be mid 1950's.
My ALL TIME FAVORITE ad is this one above. I Dreamed I was WANTED! (Me too). 1960.
Check out this Medieval Maiden, 1957
Check out THAT PAIR of TWINS *winks* 1957
Do you think the Giraffe notices she is disrobed? 1957
I was tickled PINK in this 1957 Ad. Wonder what the Humane Society thought about dying this poor elephant pink!
This 1953 Ad I'm still trying to figure out if those are aprons or sweet little crinoline slips? What do you think?
Somehow, this 1953 DESIGNING WOMEN ad sure beats the hell out of Dixie Carter and her 80's big hair.
A 1946 is one of the oldest Maidenform ads I have found. Seems to be PRE "I dreamed" ads.

Vintage Lingerie Dressing Gowns of the past.. Are these not the epitome of OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR OR WHAT!?! Why don't women of today still dress this way? I mean, come on, this no way compares or competes with the trash of what today's lingerie is offered from places like V.Secret. Occasionally you can pop into a Frederick's of Hollywood and find your self a marabou peignoir, but not in glorious rayon satin or true chiffon nylon. Most are created in a polyester chiffon or sickly poly satin. ICK. I was born in the wrong era. *sigh*
This is why I sell vintage lingerie, to keep the passion alive of truly glamorous clothing. Be sure to visit my vintage lingerie store here: Sweet Cherry Vintage Lingerie

Have you ever just come across something that literally makes your mouth drop to the floor? I have. Here is my story. While in Florida last week, I had the rare opportunity to go to St. Augustine and visit the most charming little vintage clothing stores and estates. I needed this little break after a harrowing week of funeral plans for my beloved Grandpa (who most of you know recently passed away).
While doing a *little shopping* I came across this wonderful estate find. I won't tell you how much I paid for her, but let me tell you, she was to die for. Just the epitome of MID CENTURY OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM complete with fluffy marabou, by none other LUCIE ANN for CLAIRE SANDRA of Beverly Hills. I'll let my pictures do the talking here.
The bad news it is no longer available, it was snagged up and purchased within 10 minutes of listing it last night for $325.00. Here is the listing on eBay: Lucie Ann Claire Sandra Marabou Gown . But don't fret! I have lots of more goodies I acquired like a very RARE OLGA GOLD LABEL DESIGNER SET in one of the most spectacular *sweeps* I have ever seen coming up this week! Keep your eyes peeled, you never know what I may have! xoxoxoxo...~*~MUAHHHHHHHH~*~

Are the principles wearing period vintage lingerie the same even when they’re not going to get undressed on camera? But of course! I recently learned they (the actresses) always wear true, period/era vintage lingerie. Seriously, the vintage foundations for the ladies are really why I think so many people have been so attracted to the costume design of the show. Not only does it help the vintage clothing/garments they are wearing look better but it also helps the actresses walk the way they’re supposed to walk! *giggles*. It’s about transporting the actresses into an era and for the audience to be transported as well.
I would think it's a challenge for the sex scenes, sort of figuring out, like, Okay how is this garment going to open? What are we going to see? Are we going to see the slip? Are we going to see the girdle? Are we going to see the garters? You know, just seeing all of the layers.. HOW EXCITING! I always love that. You TOO can get this look by visiting my eBay store only at SWEET CHERRY VINTAGE LINGERIE!
