Ultimate Pin-up Girl Bettie Page – Shop Inspired Retro Lingerie


As the original pin-up girl, Bettie Page still influences today’s image of sexuality. She was fun, sexy and unapologetic! Looking back at pin-up lingerie now produces a nostalgic romantic feeling yet retains its sexual allure!

Shape:  Hourglass

The typical shape we think of when imaging a pin-up girl is the sexy curves of their hourglass figure.  However, waspies and high waisted knickers can enhance or even create this shape.   Black is famously slimming, therefore, the Missguided – Black Metallic Lace Up Waspie is ideal to create the allusion of a slimmer waist.  Whereas, The Maisie White Lace Corset Waspie pulls in your waist whilst giving off a delicate appeal with the use of lace.   The Shape Black Burnout Mesh Thong and Missguided – Nude Jersey High Waisted Brief both sits smoothly of the waist and make it appear smaller.

Classic Pin-up Lingerie:

Your mind initially goes to bullet bras and girdles when you think of pin-up girls. They are now outdated and unnecessary.  However, stockings and slips remain romantic and sexy. The Contrast Lace Satin Slips With Thong is incredibly seductive and incredibly similar to Bettie Page inspired Victoria Secret piece.  Burlesque and pin-up girls are known for fun, which the ASOS Ruffle Slip and Thong Set definitely is!   Finally, finish off any sensuous outfit with a pair of Gabriella Blanca Fashion 20 Den Lycra – Black.

Modern Day Take:

Bettie page said, “I never was the girl next door” after all who wants to be her when you are in the bedroom.  Keep it naughty in Pour Moi High Waist Strapped Brief or Satin Underwire dress.  The High Neck Bralet & High Waist Knicker Set is a favourite for a modern-day take on the retro high waisted knicker!
