Colorful Stockings for Fall at Secrets in Lace

Posted on August 17th in stockings. No Comments

We’ve seen lots of you wearing colorful stockings this summer, but what happens as autumn approaches? While grey and black will always be classic stocking colors, we want to encourage you to still think about adding pops of color into your fall outfits with your stockings selection!

 

Premier French Heel in Copper

Copper colored stockings are an unexpected twist on the tried and true neutral colors that tend to pop up during cooler weather. These give your legs a bit of a burnished sheen but aren’t so crazy that you can’t wear them to the office.

Spotlight on Open Bottom Girdles!

Posted on August 11th in open bottom girdle. No Comments

Fall weather is just around the corner, which means it’s time to stock up on some lingerie to wear with your stockings! Open bottom girdles are one of our favorite pieces of lingerie and shapewear, so today we’re covering why we love them so much.

Open bottom girdles provide smoothing and shaping – and can even provide a reduction of inches in some cases. Since these can be mixed and matched with any other bras in your lingerie drawer, you have freedom to work them into pretty much any outfit!

Pretty Petti Slip by Secrets in Lace

The hottest part of summer is here, which means it is time for the best kept summer survival secret: slips. Slips help keep you cool, provide an extra layer between you and your clothing and help give you extra coverage when wearing skirts and dresses. On top of that, our slips are also elegant and romantic!

Crinoline with Contrast Trim

Slips can be worn two ways: as a light underlayer and as a garment that gives your clothing a bit of a lift. Our Pretty Petti Slip gives you a slightly puffier skirt, but still helps you stay cool when temperatures are high.… Read more

Our Speakeasy Collection is back with new color ways this week, which makes it better than ever! Our newest addition features lilac and mint embroidery on a beige background, which makes it the perfect set for summer.

Speakeasy Hi Panty

Our latest colorway comes with both the matching Fashion Garterbelt and the matching Speakeasy Hi Panty. The beige background helps this set work as a more elaborate version of a neutral, while the embroidery will make you feel romantic and luxurious.

Bullet Bra 101: What Are They and Why Wear Them?

Posted on July 7th in bullet bras. No Comments

While bullet bras were once required under every blouse and sweater, they now may be more associated with Madonna than with the golden era of Hollywood. We’re aiming to bring bullet bras back: that pointy profile under a sweater is always flattering. Our bras create that bullet profile with authentic circle stitching but are also soft and easy to wear. Each bullet bra is wireless and provides great lifting and shaping.

If you are a lover of true vintage clothing, you may find that some dresses and blouses just don’t seem to sit right in a modern bra. Mostly likely, they were built to be worn with a bullet bra underneath!… Read more

New Arrivals: The Dominique Full Slip Collection!

Posted on June 25th in slips. No Comments

We love old fashioned glamour, including slips! Unfortunately, slips have gotten really hard to find in recent years. The ones that are available tend to be extremely basic, along with occasionally being really itchy – not something you want next to your skin!

Dominique Full Slip/Champagne Lace

Our Dominique Full Slip with Champagne Lace has been really popular this year, so we’ve gone ahead and released slips in eight colors! This way, you can coordinate them with your lingerie, your outfits, or under your sheer vintage dresses.

Slips also make great nightgowns or lounge pieces, if you want to upgrade from your t-shirt and sweatpants this summer.… Read more
