Every holiday is an excellent occasion to dress up and play with lingerie. Halloween is no exception. Velvety bats, snake embroidery, intricate lace, and scary masks are showing up. Here is a non-exhaustive list of items that gave me a very witchy Halloween lingerie vibe and felt appropriate in this beautiful month of October.
Agashi is one of my favorite designers, and with them, Halloween lasts all year. The brand has a fun dark aesthetic, and the designer's Instagram shows us regularly how she lives her Adams family life so that we can live ours through her creations.
The Greta Peignoir is a decadent creation. This piece would honestly be perfect to lounge around your apartment mourning your wealthy husband, who recently mysteriously disappeared. There is the possibility to ask for customizations, such as mesh instead of velvet, or choose a different velvet color. That is what is great about small designers. There is often a way to get the item of your dreams, even if it is not the one pictured on the stock pictures. If you aren’t a fan of the batwing train but love the overall aesthetic of the piece, the Bat Wing kimono in mesh or velvet would be a good option. Size-wise, you have the choice of small, regular or tall length and bust sizes from 30” to 50”.
Halloween is also about your favorite monsters. For those who like mythology, we can discuss Medusa's monster status. Indeed she was initially punished with her monstrous appearance for something for which she wasn't responsible. I love the idea of honoring her femininity and strength. The Studio Pia Naga collection reminds me of the goddess snakes hair. The snake embroidery is eye-catching and very in trend this season. The brand’s size range goes from 30C to 32F, US 2 to 12.
Mesh gloves are such versatile items. The sheerness allows us to style them with many different clothes and colors. During Halloween, this can also mean vintage-inspired costumes. Bettie Page gloves are also perfect for burlesque-inspired outfits, as you can imagine considering the name of the brand.
Masks are a Halloween classic. Some are cute, some are scary, and some are worth being on your underwear. This cotton set from Anita Handmade shop is featuring an adorable vintage masks print, and I think it's just super fun. The brand goes up to a FF cup and produces made to order garments.
Magic should only be practiced wearing long black gowns adorned with lace appliqué. The Bluebella Nyla chemise would be the perfect outfit for a night of potion making and punishing your enemies. There are so many ways to style this chemise, but you could also wear it as is and own your inner witch. Nyla is available in size XS to XXL.
On a similar vibe, intricate black lace is an appropriate material for spell casting. The beautifully scalloped neckline of this lace bra features eyelashes, and part of the lace is reminiscent of cathedral’s stained glasses. Available from 36-42 C to E, this set is from Figleaves Curve range. This dramatic ensemble might not be directly Halloween inspired, but it does look like witch lingerie.
