Dita Von Teese. Gypsy Rose Lee. Josephine Baker. Betty Paige. These are just a few of the cheekily sexy women who have inspired Itsy Bitsy Lingerie’s Burlesque Boudoir Collection.

Counting 30s and 40s inspired pieces like a satin bra top with laser-cut lace edging, ombre fringing. vintage silk tape and emerald crystal beading, or a feather trimmed thong hand-beaded with a selection of upcycled gems, each piece from Itsy Bitsy is eco-friendly.
As founders of the brand, Oonagh and Tracy are inspired by an array of beautiful untapped treasures waiting to be transformed from garments discarded by ladies who lunch into the naughtiest pieces of lingerie. With an eye for quality, the pair are passionate about searching for unusual fabrics and trimmings in antique collections.
The designing duo scour vintage boutiques and charity shops for materials, but if you’ve found something you love yourself, they’re happy to convert the material into a beguiling bespoke work of art, which is sure to elicit the required response.
