Written by Juliet Walmsley

Bring the glamour of the 40’s, 50 and 60’s into the bedroom with the following sexy lingerie choices. If you want to look and feel like a pin-up girl or a saucy French burlesque dancer under your jeans and T-shirt, then check out the following for the best options. Sexy lingerie isn’t just for Valentine’s Day.

Choose a surprising undergarment to spice up a random day, or just give you a little confidence boost due to your little secret. Remember to measure carefully and check your numbers against the charts on the website for best fit. Don’t guess, so many women are walking around uncomfortably with unflattering undergarments. Try the chart from Dollhouse Betty to help find the right size for your particular shape.

There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.” – Mark Twain
