  1. Omg I’ve been wanting this book for ages!!! I love garter belts and stockings. I am hoping to snag a WKD bullet bra soon!

    And I like you on Facebook and follow on twitter (and maybe Pinterest as well..)

  2. I love my vintage garter belts! They’re so much more effective at holding up my stockings than the modern lingerie styles are (since I’m guessing those aren’t meant for, um, all-day wear!), plus the clips are metal instead of plastic.

    PS: I “liked” you on Facebook as well (under my real name, Abbey). =)

  3. I follow you on FB and Pinterest. I love girdles with built in garters. They are practical for keeping stockings up, but also give you a perfect shape.

  4. There is nothing like the feel of a silky vintage slip next to your skin! Much better than today’s polyester slips just don’t hang the same way or feel as luxurious. I have been following this blog, your facebook page and recently your pinterest boards. Thank you for sharing your wonderful journey into the past!

  5. i’ve just recently seen what a difference bullet bras can make, but have yet to purchase one. i really love stockings and garters though!

  6. I follow on Facebook and Twitter.

    My favorite lingerie is the 1920s cami-knickers (aka the step-in). There are some absolutely divine silk and lace examples out there!

  7. I love well-made overbust corsets, bullet bras – in general, everything! Following you on pinterest and facebook

  8. Oooh, it’s so hard to choose just one. I think that my favourite item of vintage lingerie is the bullet bra. I don’t own one of my own, but I’ve always longed for one. I just love the shape they give.
    I follow you on Facebook! My email address is vkbowen@hotmail.com

  9. I just bought my first long line bra and real girdle. I adore the done-up feeling a girdle and stockings gives you!
    Thanks for running the give-away!
    P.S. Following your Facebook 🙂

  10. Garter belts all the way, but nothing makes an outfit work like a bullet bra! Its so hard to choose one….

  11. I am absolutely obsessed with back seamed stockings! I wore them for the first time years ago in a play, and I’ve never gone back to pantyhose. I got to use my upcoming wedding as an excuse to buy my first pair of fully fashioned stockings. Now I’m in even bigger trouble.

  12. Just one favourite…oh, that’s quite the tricky! It’s such a close tie for me between crinolines and seamed stockings, but it I simply must pick, seamed stockings it is, because they’re such a timelessly beautiful element of mid-century style that I can just as easily weave into 40s looks as I can 50s ones.

    Fabulous giveaway, honey, thank you very much for holding it. Red lacquered fingers and toes shall remain faithfully crossed! 🙂

    (I follow you across the social media board.)

  13. I am really in a 1930-40s phase and the bias cut silk slips.and glamorous dressing gowns.
    Pinned several items on Pinterest.

  14. I liked your Facebook page! (I’m surprised I haven’t done that already!) And my favorite vintage lingerie is probably tap pants. Oh, and stockings!

  15. I would have said stockings up until just recently but will now have to say bras thanks to WKD. I purchased my first cone bras from WKD in London and discovered, with their assistance, I have been wearing the wrong size the entire time! I obviously need some more lessons in the vintage undergarment department 😉

    I am following you on Pinterest as well!

  16. This is a toughie.. but I’d have to say seamed stockings! I’ve purchased many throughout the years – thankfully I did end up finding a more durable pair.

    I’ve been following you on Facebook for awhile. 🙂

  17. Oh, I hope I win this! This would be so wonderful! My favorite vintage lingerie items are stockings and good all-day-wear suspender belts! I also love the fabulous vintage shape a quality corset can give!

  18. I follow you on Pinterest!

    My favorite would probably be vintage slips because they are both sexy and practical.

  19. My favourite is seamed stockings. Can’t live without them! I’m following you on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. :3

  20. I like you on facebook! I really like vintage soft cup *not bullet* bras. So much more comfy and figure flattering than modern foamy round cups.

  21. You can’t beat a beautiful pair of seamed stockings in my opinion! They add a sense of class to every outfit 🙂 x

  22. Girdles are my favorite. Making you feel slim and sexy.
    I follow on Pinterest 🙂

    Btw love your blog and follow it all the way from Denmark, Europe 🙂

  23. I’ve followed you on twitter & pinterest (my username is “citoyenne”.) My favourite item of vintage lingerie has to be seamed stockings or girdles, probably the latter, as I think they look pretty in their own right while also being practical.

  24. I follow you on Pinterest. My favorite is the garter belt/stocking combo. I hate the saggy-crotch feeling of modern pantyhose, and love how much sexier the garter belt looks than the control top of most hose.

  25. My fave vintage lingerie combo is back seamed stockings and a garter belt. There’s nothing like the feeling of sliding on quality stockings. Pinterest: thatssoboss Twitter: thatssoboss
