Pinup Girls Reimagined For The 21st Century!

Many high profile designers are re-imagining pinup girl styles for today's modern woman, drawing inspiration from the golden era of Hollywood through to mid-Century.

We particularly adore the classic pinup girls styles from the exquisite 1940s and 1950s, which is why we *heart* Stop Staring Clothing, Queen of Heartz, Broad-Minded, Steady Clothing, and Mode Merr. This is also why we love working with Bernie Dexter, who captures the essence of the traditional and wholesome pinup girl look.

Our own clothing line, Broad Minded Clothing, is designed and manufactured to reflect our affection for those vintage, retro styles. We particularly favor post-war couture.

Shop our boutique and spice up your Spring wardrobe with some fabulous vintage pin-up girl styles! You will find some couture, and a whole smörgåsbord of retro & pinup rockabilly girls hair clips, lingerie, retro inspired dresses from the 1940s & 1950s, pinup panties, and 1950s lucite-inspired jewelry.

Modern Day Pinups: Fetish Pinup Models

Fetish Pinup Model
Fetish Pinup Model

Fetish pin-up modeling might seem tame by today's standards, but once upon a time, showing this much skin was downright scandalous! Thanks to the beautiful (albeit low-budget) photography and filmmaking of folks like Irving & Paula Klaw, and the talents of models such as Bettie Page and Tempest Storm, the classic fetish pin-up look will be forever a part of American culture. The fetishists who indulged in these photos and films in the fifties and sixties were often high heel and stocking fetishists, and fans of other kinds of lingerie and light bondage and domination. The models were pretty and bright and girls-next-door, often smiling and winking at the camera. The look is still alive today, with models like Bernie Dexter (above) and lingerie designers like Lucy B Lingerie who are committed to preserving this classic and comely style.

Modern Day Pinups: Hot Rod Kustom Kulture Pinup Models

The "bad girls" of pin-up modeling, often tattooed and pierced. Less glam and more sass, if you're looking for a gal to "pin up" on the wall of your garage, or to wave the checkered flag at the drag race, then a hot rod pin-up is the girl for you. Modern-day greaser hotties such as Cherry Dollface (above) wear the look from head to toe. But it's not just a look... it's a lifestyle.

Modern Day Pinups: Burlesque Models

They're not strippers-- Burlesque dancers tease and tantalize with elaborate costumes that combine Vaudeville with striptease. Stockings, boots, jewelry, feathers in the hair, elbow-length opera gloves... every detail is important to creating the glamorous mystique of burlesque. Perhaps the most well-known modern burlesque dancer is Dita von Teese, who has brought the look and style back for a new generation of fans.

Modern Day Pinups: Sailor Girl Pinup Models

Sailor Girl Pinup Models

One thing will always be true... gals love soldiers (and vice-a-versa!) As homage to the USO show girls of days past, modern day pin-ups continue the tradition of supporting the troops in the best way they can.. with a look that is as sweet as it is sexy. You can still find models such as Cherry Dollface (above) in calendars and magazines wearing Army uniforms, Navy dresses, Marine outfits, and sailor caps. And they'll keep the classic all-American look alive until they bring the boys back home!

Pinup Girl Lingerie

Designed by Bernie Dexter & Lucy B. Lingerie -- Couture, Retro lingerie for all you pinup models and connoisseurs of vintage skivvies!

Designed by Bernie Dexter & Lucy B. Lingerie -- Retro, Couture lingerie for all you pin-up girls and collectors of vintage unmentionables!

Pin-up models will swoon over the retro style and attention to detail! Must-have for your next photo shoot!

The Bernie Dexter signature line of lingerie is painstakingly reproduced from vintage patterns and styles. The "Scanty Panties" include a nylon center "stripe" up the back to hide the naughty bottom cleavage, just like the camera club models wore! This authentic detail is very unique and rare! The double nylon gusset and high-waisted style are also hard to find in vintage reproduction undies.

The "Sweet Tart" style is uniquely beautiful, and include ruffle-bottom panties and gorgeous jewel-tone colors.

Pinup models will squee for the attention to detail, such as the "modesty" stripe up the back of the Scanty Panties, to hide that rear cleavage. This and other modesty details remain true to the style of lingerie the old camera club models wore way back when. This sort of unique authenticity is very rare and sought-after in vintage reproduction lingerie. Ditty for the double nylon gusset and high-waisted style.

Find Lucy B Lingerie at Babygirl Boutique




Designer Notes: Lucy B Lingerie has its roots in the vintage pin up and glamour girl styles of the 1940s and 50's. Whether you feel like the "Girl Next Door" or the "Blond Bombshell" Lucy B offers a seductive selection of lingerie for the modern woman.

      What a lovely niche you have created. Pinups know how to pull off sexy but still remain classy. Wish more girls today would understand that flesh does not equal sexy...

      My dear! I love this type of clothing and hope that you are doing well with your sales. Have you seen, on eBay, the dresses being marketed as Bettie Page LLC -- the new Bettie Page? I spotted a bunch of vintage, swing dresses with a pre-order. Didn't know if this type of dress was up your alley, but I could see you maybe doing a page break on your lens to include some of them for your customer! Hugs.
