I was eight in the early 60’s when I found an early 50’s vintage black negligee in our attic . No doubt my mothers possibly from their honeymoon.
I remember putting it on and how wonderful it felt even at that age. you girls know the feeling . What I consider vintage for me is the mid 70’s nylon tricot panties and nighties.
I still think I have a nice girlie figure but none of those items would fit me now. But I’d love to see them anyway. One item in particular. I used to do most of my purchases at Kmart. I used to go past the one closest to my town to one further away figuring nobody would know me there , I was in my late teens. One day I went to Kmart (the closer one) not for girl things but the complete opposite, a case of motor oil. But I couldn’t leave the store without at least walking past the lingerie department. There on the discount rack was a cute long pink nightgown, just what I was looking for. It was my size and about 5 dollars. Without looking at it further I put it in the cart and headed to the checkout , lingerie and motor oil! It wasn’t until later that I realized it wasn’t actually a nightgown. Inside was a cute little bralette and matching panties, what I thought was the nightgown was actually an ankle length tie in the front cover up . It turned out to be my first bra. It was simply adorable and felt so feminine and soft. I would wear it to bed as a nightie.
I recently purchased a new vintage type Victorian layered nightgown . I just love that type of lingerie.
