We told you in January that you could expect a collection from Dita Von Teese and Wonderbra. Well, now we have some more information and pictures! The gorgeous “Wonderbra by Dita Von Teese” collection is the first time in Wonderbra’s history that a celebrity has created an exclusive range with the company. Dita, perhaps the most famous burlesque dancer in the world, included garter belts, panties, and bras in her collection (with an unsurprising nod to retro fashions). The star says of her saucy underpinnings:
“I am very proud of the lingerie that I’ve created for Wonderbra, because it has all the beautiful detail of sexy, sensual and glamorous lingerie, but the fit is perfect to wear under your everyday clothes. I love it when you can go about your daily business with the knowledge that you have a little secret of your own on underneath.“
Inspired by 1940s and 1950s Hollywood glamour, the collection includes a bra with a top-wire design that was popular in the fifties. The drop-dead sexy styles also anticipate how your man will react when he sees you in them – some of the panties and bras have quick-release magnetic clasps so you can get them off as quickly and easily as possible (Wonderbra promises that this detail will make “daring stripteases a cinch”)! But Dita is quick to say that men’s reactions aren’t the most important thing about her collection:
“Lingerie shouldn’t be something you just put on for your lover; you should do it for you…It’s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.”
I think both women and men will be able to appreciate styles like this:
The collection will be launched in Europe on September 23, and our readers in the United States will be able to purchase the collection from ASOS.com.
