Edwardian lingerie, underwear, stockings, and corsets are crucial to creating the correct 1900s-1910s silhouette. The shape of corsets changed from the extreme S-bend to the long and lean flattening corset after 1911. The brassiere, or bra, was in fashion by 1918. Petticoats too changed from a slim hip down to a full hem in the 1900s, then to a column like full Princess slip in the 1910s. The typical order of lingerie is:
- Slip or Chemise
- Drawers or Combination Suit
- Corset Cover and petticoat skirt or Chemise/Full-Length Princess Slip
- Stockings, attached to garter clips on a corset
Shop these turn of the century Edwardian era, Titanic era, and WW1 women’s lingerie pieces. Many are handmade replica slips and corsets, others are modern but will work for the decades. Make your own with a sewing pattern too (highly recommended for corsets).
