The Nylon Swish: New to Shapewear?

If you're new to shapewear or vintage lingerie, Elinor has some advice for you! She answers many of the questions you might have about finding the perfect pieces for your desired silhouette. Whether you want to know about one-pieces, bullet bras, corsets, stockings, or something else, she has it covered on her blog, The Nylon Swish.

I’m new to shapewear, help!
"I am well aware that getting into the world of vintage inspired lingerie can be very daunting and that there is a lot to take in;  why would I choose a padded bullet bra over one without padding? Should I buy a long or short girdle? What does ‘firm control’ mean?? Gahhhh!! I give up it’s too scary! Yes I have been there too and it’s no fun. So, this post is designed to answer some of those tricky questions..."

Vintage Addict Diary: Rago Review

Natalie wore a Rago 6207 high waist long leg shaper to slip into a tight wiggle dress! She shared her thoughts about it on her vintage fashion blog, Vintage Addict Diary.

Thank you so much for wearing and reviewing Rago, Natalie!

"I took my measurements before and after, and this garment took 1 inch off both my waist and hips, and well as overall smoothing and some lifting of the derriere! Well they looked great, but I’d been through this before – would they stand the wearing test?? The answer is, yes!"

Rago Pink & Black Waist Cincher Review

We found a post that was perfect for "Throwback Thursday"! Back in 2008, Cora wrote a helpful review of the Rago Pink & Black Waist Cincher on The Lingerie Addict back in 2008. Protip: For real cinching, size down.
"The pink lace front is beautiful. Rago has a reputation for well-crafted, retro undergarments and this certainly does not disappoint." - Cora Harrington
