All American Lingerie

Updated on November 4, 2009

In times of economic hardship, we're all reminded to buy locally. No matter where our locale is, it suddenly becomes exceptionally important that we buy there. I'm not going to pretend I fully understand the reasons behind this, but I love a good display of patriotism as much as the next girl and there's no display of patriotism like an American display of patriotism. So without further ado, let us man the lingerie!

Olga Lingerie

In spite of the fact that the originator of Olga lingerie is Polish, this lingerie can be regarded as being very much American lingerie as it was America who offered Olga Erteszek safe harbor as a war refugee in 1939. Olga has rewarded the USA and the world many times over by making some of the most lovely and favored lingerie on the market. In 2008, lingerie lovers voted Olga's 'Secret Hug' panties as being the best that money can buy.

Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair has been making lingerie since the 1960's, and forty years of practice has really paid off for this company who focus on contemporary feminine lingerie styling. It's hard to have a conversation about lingerie without mentioning Vanity Fair at some point, so they have most certainly earned their place on this list.

Hanky Panky

Women love Hanky Panky lingerie, because this company took the concept of looking good in lace and took it to the next level – feeling good in lace. The lace Hanky Panky uses is dipped in pure butter produced by cows tended in Alpine pastures by fair maidens and is them carefully laundered by rosy cheeked orphans. Or maybe it's not. Maybe the secret of its softness is something else. I won't pretend that I know or fully understand what it is, all I know is that Hanky Panky has swept the American lingerie market off its feet.


Natori is a designer through and through, and her creations are truly amazing. If you are looking for fine lingerie that hails from the USA, you can do no better than Natori lingerie. There is a softness, delicacy and attention to detail in Natori lingerie that will have you and any fortunate onlookers admiring your lingerie for years to come .


I would be entirely remiss if I wrote an article about American lingerie and did not mention the Wonderbra, an icon in American fashion. Wonderbra has been supporting women for years, helping them to put their best bosom forward, even if it is a somewhat artificially enhanced one.

Generic Designer Lingerie

There is also a great deal of more generic designer lingerie out there. When I say 'generic designer', I am talking about the larger fashion houses that also include lingerie collections. These include Calvin Klein, DKNY, and Tommy Hilfiger.

      Alas, you could not mention the recently deceased Shadowline. They actually made some of their line in the US of A.
