High Heels

We've all heard how high heels can be unhealthy when worn too often (hard on your joints, tendons, toes, etc.), but what are the benefits? Obviously they make you taller, but more importantly they make your legs look longer. They also become thinner by elongating your calf muscles. Your legs will look especially good in heels together with nylon stockings such as these from Berkshire:

Being Young

 Age is designated by a number. The words "young" and "old" are a frame of mind. Here's a young woman in her 70's. She actually came as an escort (no, not THAT kind of an escort) with a model who was doing a photo shoot with us. Sometimes models will bring a friend or relative along if they're unfamiliar with a photographer. Well, when this particular Grenier corset proved to be a size too big for the model, she stepped right in and did a splendid job.  She had never modeled before -and certainly not in a corset and stockings, but didn't hesitate to try something new.  You'll never grow old having an attitude like that.

Va Bien Strapless Torsolette

Va Bien makes a full range of lingerie products, but their specialty is specialty products (does that make sense?).  If you have a low plunge dress, a halter dress,  a strapless dress or a strapless/backless gown, then they have the solution as to what to wear underneath.  Shown here is the 6363 Torsolette. It's strapless, backless, and provides overall lift and shaping - perfect for underneath fitted wedding or evening wear:

Silhouette Euphoria U8 Bra

 If you have a small to average chest and very large breasts (greater than DDD), finding a comfortable, great fitting bra can be a near-impossible task. Well, Silhouette is up to the task with the long-running Euphoria bra. It was one of the first bras to go up to a size JJ cup (a N cup in U.S. sizing). Band sizes start at 30 and go up to 40. The smallest cup size is a GG (J in U.S.).  In other words, it is not a one-style-fits-all bra. This stylish bra is made to fill a specific need where there aren't a lot of quality choices.

Open Corselettes

We sell a half dozen or so styles of open corselettes, also known as all-in-one open bottom girdles. Some are front zip closures, one is a side zip style, and a few, such as this one here, is a pull -on style. The Rago Lacette 9357 is our most popular one. It comes in four colors and provides instant smoothing and shaping. The six garters hold your stockings firmly in place. And of course, since it's a Rago, it's made in the USA!
