Fabric was in very short supply during WWII and those rumours of parachute silk being transformed into lingerie and even wedding dresses are totally true.
Rare silk escape maps were also turned into blouses, dresses and lingerie during the 1940s and our Map range is inspired by a set of escape map lingerie on display in London's Imperial War Museum. The original set belonged to the Countess of Mountbatten and was made from a map of Italy given to her by an RAF boyfriend.
Our 1940s map has been digitally printed onto soft peach satin for a vintage look and seductive feel.
Our Map lingerie range is designed to be easy to fit. The French knickers have a little elastic at the back while stretchy powermesh is incorporated into the Bra, Knickers and Suspender Belt so if you are an inch or two different to our size chart will not make a difference to fit everything will still fit.
