Take a look at these vintage burlesque pics from the 1890s. These three are my favorites, but you can view more in the original BuzzFeed article. I love using retro corset photos as inspiration for burlesque outfits. Click the images for a modern twist on these classics!
Here's a lovely lady all dolled up in lace and pearls. Get a load of that super fancy headdress!
This next one is also lovely. What a sweet Cupid costume! Love the pretty little hearts on the hem of her outfit and those diaphanous wings.
But this last one is by far the most unique! That's quite the horse costume - so detailed, right down to the hooves! This would make a great themed burlesque outfit idea!
Kicking off a new series of posts called "From a Guy's Eye", I review the Ivory Mesh Burlesque Bustier from Baci Lingerie that we just got in the shop. I like to keep it classy and informative, but also tell you exactly why I think guys will love it. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it :)
This bustier really shows off the garters. They're so eye catching, suggestive and, well, feminine. The garter clasps are classic and have been around since the 1950s. I love the garters because of the way the bustier rests on the hips. Often the garters on corsets or bustiers will be more decorative and can come up a little short, but these are generously long (8"-12") and will fit with almost any stocking or thigh high. This is a great look on a taller burlesque dancer, or someone with a shorter torso.
