Christmas is the time for sheer, unashamed luxury – and this lingerie is the very ultimate. Set the mood yourself – they’re so beautiful to be caught in unawares; accidentally on purpose, of course!

If anyone from Janet Reger ever reads my blog, please listen to my plea:

Your underwear in the Seventies was pure and utter perfection. Nothing you do now comes within a mile of it. I understand the need to conform to the current styles in underwear (and don’t even get me started on those…) but I can promise you that a range of archive pieces – in silk – would be a success. The cut and construction of your balcony bras leaves Gossard’s Wonderbra in the shade for cleavage, and the unpadded silk triangle bras are more than just triangles – they are unequalled in construction and support. But I’m sick of trying to find more vintage in my size. Other brands embrace their history with archive ranges, even those who don’t have such an impressive archive, so why not you?

Thank you.
