1920s style underwear and lingerie. What goes under your vintage dress is very important for creating the right boyish shape of the 1920s. A low square neckline silk or satin slip should always be worn under a dress or skirt and blouse. It helps make the dress hang right on the body (not too tight). A light corset, girdle or body shaper is nice for curvy women to get a smoother clothing drape. Garters with or without attached underwear will hold those stockings up. A 20s style bandeau bra or sports bra will work best for a bust flattening boyish look. Silky 1920s underwear, panties or boy shorts are nice to wear under any type of clothing.
At night a long nightgown or two piece pajama set will keep you warm but when made of silky satin will also provide some elegance in the bedroom. Adding a romantic robe and bedroom slippers will keep the Art Deco and Old Hollywood feel in your home.
