Looking for something flirty and playful for sleepwear? Let me recommend My Retro Closet! Having been sent a couple of baby dolls for a shoot with the wonderful John, from Portraits and Pinups, I now have the luxury to wear them to lounge around the house and wind up my Boyfriend in 😉
First off I was struck by the quality. The items feel slinky and there was not a stitch out of place. Abi the Boss Lady who currently makes each item herself, cannot be faulted. Not only does this hand made method guarantee quality but it also makes each item highly personable! I loved the blue and pink colourway of my custom ‘Bettie’ Babydoll as I think the pastels complement each other excellently. However as My Retro Closet has become more popular; it’s lead to opportunities for more colours to be added to the range. So why not be daring and go for a striking red and black option or go green and pink!
The ribbon ties are pretty and although they give off the impression of being easily undone, once they are tied they don’t feel flimsy at all making the Bettie Babydoll highly wearable; without looking one bit practical. I also like that My Retro Closet enable’s the option to change the length of the straps so you can play around with the look a bit.
The ‘Dixie’ Open Babydoll is super cute, coming in pink, black, red and blue. I was really excited for this item to arrive, not only because it is one of the newest items to the ever growing range but I liked the 60’s feel to it. The sheer fabric feels silky to touch and I can confirm doesn’t crease easy (result)! I also like the slightly see-through aspect to the material, which can make for a very risqué look or a pretty and cute one when teamed with satin underwear. I also think the flirty ruffles are a great detail, as well as the no-fuss ribbon tie up.
My Retro Closet make beautiful Babydolls. I love that they can most definitely be used to seduce but are girlie enough just to keep as your own piece of luxury, to make yourself feel pampered. The pastel colours in particular would look great at a pinup’s sleepover! Ahem… Rhythm Riot anyone? The My Retro Closet website also stocks some items from other brands like Kiss Me Deadly and Playful Promises too, so you can get your lingerie shopping done all in one online order.
