Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, sex-pots & pin-ups, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, starlets & harlots, and Über fashionistas shop for the vintage lingerie of their dreams.
Silver Screen Loungerie offers vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we occasionally find a “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by a previous or original owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring these pieces, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This very-sheer and risqué frock dates from the 1920s, and is one of the most-unique and delicate flapper era silks in Richard’s fab collection! For a 90-years old silk lingerie piece, we are amazed to find this piece looking almost as if it were created just yesterday! With the finest silk chiffon for the skirt, and a thin silk crepe for the bodice, the materials are among the best available from this era. The bodice features floral figures embroidered with silk-floss, and there are sheer net panels on the sides. There are pink silk ribbons around the neckline, and through the lace forming the dropped waist. The ribbons do not adjust… flapper girls always wore loose-fitting undies!
As there has been the slightest bleeding from the embroidered green leaves, we recommend that the item should be dry cleaned... rather than hand-laundered.
We offer this frock as a frivolous boudoir piece that will be a joy to the fortunate buyer! It is as ready to wear today as it was in the 1920s!
