Secrets In Lace works hard to keep romance alive in the modern world. We’re inspired by all things vintage — from our authentic stockings to our vintage lingerie. We are the exclusive designers of the Dita Von Teese Nylon Stocking Collection and have the exclusive Rago Shapewear Salon.
Keep up with this blog for news, vintage inspiration, and tips to incorporate some more romance into your lingerie drawer.
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!
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
While we’re big fans of our own line of shapewear and lingerie, we’re also throughly in love with the classic products made by Rago Shapewear. We love them so much that we’ve dedicated an entire salon to them! This section of our site offers pretty much any shapewear product that you could need, from pieces to go under your wedding dress to pieces that work with office wear. Rago is also really popular for boudoir photoshoots!
To get that classic boudoir look, go for an all-in-one open bottom girdle. We love the floral lace that Rago uses in these pieces as well as the ability to attach your favorite stockings from Secrets in Lace!… 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.
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.
Our Speakeasy Bra is related to our always popular Cabaret Plunge Bra, so if you like one you’re likely to like the other!… Read more
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

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!
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
