Our Top 5 Picks Vintage Lingerie Intimates
If you are starting out your vintage lingerie collection, these are a must for your vintage lingerie collection. Our top five picks for your basic collection or starting out.

1.Vintage full slip. I highly recommend a 1950's Vanity Fair or Van Raalte. Not only exquisite quality, but most beautiful in design. I tend to go for the brighter colors with lots of lace. (I wear these as nightgowns in the warmer summer nights).

2. Long rayon satin gown. Think Jean Harlow, Veronica Lake (as shown).

This is for your more romantic nights. Perfect for your wedding night. Our favorite brands are Fischer, Lady Duff.

3. Double chiffon peignoir babydoll set. Think Doris Day, Jane Russell (as shown) This is perfect for when you are in a more playful mood. Good for anytime. Or a set like this periwinkle chiffon set (1st picture below) by Rogers (I own this!). I recommend (again) Vanity Fair, Shadowline,  or Rogers when it comes to these sets.

4. Double chiffon peignoir long negligee set. Again, for your more romantic nights, great for the vintage themed honeymoon.

5. Half slip. Again, you cannot go wrong with Vanity Fair or Van Raalte.

I didn't include any foundations as you see, but that will be in another article down the road.
There are many more brands out there just as beautiful and good quality, I just prefer certain brands. It's a personal taste. You will find yours, and let me know what brands are your faves by leaving me a comment!
