Let’s talk about brands. There are countless lingerie brands out there but the one that stands head and shoulders above the rest for retro-inspired lingerie, has to be Playful Promises. You may have come across this cheeky brand before but have you seen their Bettie Page collection? This is an ever-growing collection of pin up style underwear inspired by … yes you guessed it … Bettie Page, herself. Known as the ‘Queen of Pin Ups’ this stunning American Model took the world by storm in the 1950’s with her trademark bangs and captivating blue eyes. Bettie Page embodied the essence of pin up with her ‘girl next door’ beauty, combining innocence with daring confidence. She was not afraid to be different, inspiring women globally to be a free spirit and let their naughty side slip. The 40’s and 50’s are an iconic era for women’s fashion as the style symbolises change. Bettie Page and others allowed women to have power and take control of their own sexuality.
Playful Promises clearly adore this era and what it stands for, as this collection of lingerie is an obvious nod to the powerful statements made 80 years ago. This brand has taken all the iconic shapes, styles and trends from the 50’s and added a modern twist. Playful Promises have effortlessly brought the Pin Up girl into the 21st century and made it fashionable once again. This collection includes risqué open cups bras, ultra-high waist briefs, figure-hugging girdles and so much more. All designed to give you that sexy 50’s confidence and an hourglass silhouette anyone will fall for. Some of our favourite ranges are below, but you can shop the full Bettie Page range here >
