Looking for something similar? I couldn’t find a complete match for Kate Winslet’s Tula character’s pink printed bra with bronze lace at the top, but this brightly colored Anguilla Darted Underwire Bra from Whimsy by Lunaire. I like the pretty bright pink and printed color and shape.

13 Going on 30 / 2004

One of my favorite actresses, Jen Garner plays a totally fun character who wished to be 30 on her 13th birthday! The opening scene of her after her wish, features her in a colorful sleepmask and a rose colored chemise.

This modern take on the rose colored lace lined chemise from Julianna Rae is lovely. The Le Tresor Silk Chemise is gorgeous, slinky, and you could totally layer this with heels and a blazer or jacket like Jenna Rink does in the movie, for a fun take on an updated 90’s fashion! Pair it with a colorful sleepmask for a fun pop of color!

The film loosely based on the life of Marie Antoinette featuring Kirsten Dunst. Oh the corsets and the lovely costumes. One scene Kirsten is wearing nothing but a hand fan, and knee high stockings with blue ribbon bows.

Looking for something similar? Try these luxury stockings from La Lilouche. They’re opaque white stockings with blue ribbon bows, as well as tulle ruffles and gold fabric embellishment. These handmade Lola Stockings make a great modern take on the stockings in the film.

This newer film features Jennifer Aniston wearing a bra and boyshort set in a beige colorway. Pretty modern and easy to find a set that is similar and a comfortable yet luxury set.

Looking for something similar? Try this gorgeous Merci Half Cup Bra and matching Short from Chantelle. It is similar in color and this set has texture as well.

The Brass Teapot / 2012

The lovely Juno Temple stars in this dark comedy, and wears many pieces of lingerie throughout the film. My favorite being this basque with stockings in a black and pink colorway!

Looking for something similar? Supposedly Trashy Lingerie in California made this corset that is worn by Dakota in the movie and they also sell it in their shop. The Cherie Corset is available for order online.

I Give It A Year / 2013

Rose Byrne rocks a Mimi Holliday set in this current movie that came out last year. So this bright pink and yellow set is probably quite familiar to you if you’re a lingerie addict.

Looking for something similar? How about an exact match? Rose’s character is wearing the Kamikaze Balcony Bra and matching panties from Mimi Holliday!

RENT / 2005

One of my favorite broadway musicals, not one of my favorite movie adaptions though. Rosario Dawson plays the role of Mimi and this shimmery lingerie set is the stand out lingerie piece in the movie.

Looking for something similar? Try this EgoBoost Sequin Bra from Gossard, and these handmade Catriona Panties from La Lilouche. A cute and sparkly updated version of the set in the movie. Pair it with a pair of fishnets to complete the look.

This Opaline Bodysuit from Sonata Lingerie is gorgeous and offers a current style.

Sin City / 2005

Theres quite a bit of lingerie in this black and white comic style noir film, but Jessica Alba in this bra is probably one of the most popular scenes in the film involving lingerie.

Looking for something similar? The bra in the movie is supposed to fit into a cowgirl type of fashion, so it features studs on the cups. However, the shape of the bra is really similar to this Tempest Rose Bra from Kiss Me Deadly.

Grindhouse Planet Terror / 2007

Rose McGowan wears this red and black striped bra in Grindhouse, in just one of her scenes that involve lingerie.

Looking for something similar? The Charlotte Balconet Bra from Affinitas Parfait in red and black, offers an updated striped style. It’s striped and offers a supported look that would makes a nice modern take on the striped bra.

Watchmen / 2009

Carla Gugino plays Silk Spectre in this comic to film adaptation, and she rocks vintage styled lingerie. I like this pretty yellow and black look.

Looking for something similar? This look can be given a modern makeover layered different lingerie pieces. I would suggest the Deco Strapless Bra from Freya that offers lift and support, underneath the yellow Peplum Dress from Made by Niki, and the Underbust Leather Corset from Orchard Corset on top. To complete the look, pair it with your favorite black panties and suspender belt and fishnet stockings. If you want to add gloves, try the Madeleine Satin Evening Gloves by Cornelia James.


What are some films from the 2000s that feature lingerie that you like?

Lingerie on Film: The 90’s Movie Collection

July 26th, 2014 @ Amber

Nicole Kidman wearing white cotton cami and panties in Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

I was thinking about lingerie in film lately. I notice lingerie in movies a lot more now that I’m a lingerie blogger than I did before I began blogging about it. I decided to break films down by decade and scour films from the 90’s for this first edition of Lingerie on Film. Here you’ll find all kinds of lingerie in all genres of films from the 90’s! So grab your mocha berry lipstick and your hair scrunchies, and let’s browse some lingerie on film.

Wild Things / 1998

Denise Richards wears a lacy white bralette in one scene in the movie Wild Things. The bralette features what looks like a fairly feminine design with lace trim and a triangle bra design.

Looking for something similar? Try the Lovely Lace Cream Bralette from Miss Crofton, pictured below. The Miss Crofton bralette is light and comfortable looking and has a feminine floral print on the cups.

True Romance / 1993

Patricia Arquette plays the always fabulously dressed Alabama, and this aqua blue bra is probably one of the most popular images of her in lingerie from the film. The bra features lace cups in a balconette style bra.

Looking for something similar? Check out the Duet Lace Demi Bra from Timpa. The teal color and the textured unlined cups creates a great modern twist on this 90’s style bra.

American Beauty / 1999

Thora Birch played the self body snarking angst ridden teenager in love, and in one scene she wears a lavender bra as she looks through the window while the new neighbor watches her too.  The bra is pretty basic and probably pretty typical of a teenager in the 90’s.

Looking for something similar? This Icon Perfect Push Up Bra from Calvin Klein offers more lift and support than Thora had from her bra in the film, but the color is very similar, so this is a great modern version of her character’s bra in the film.


Titanic / 1997

This movie is full of fun vintage designs, and Kate Winslet wears them well. This robe, has to be my most favorite piece of lingerie in the film! The robe is made of gold and black and features long cocoon style sleeves. So gorgeous!

Looking for something similar? This gorgeous 1915 style cocoon French Quarter Robe from Dollhouse Bettie. The style is very similar to the robe that Kate Winslet’s Rose wears in Titanic, however this robe is made of a sheer lace poly material, so while the style is right the color and fabric is a bit off. If’ you’re looking for the black and gold colorway, you could also try the luxury Luxe Boudoir Robe from Christine Lingerie.

Cruel Intentions / 1999

SMG’s role of the super wicked Kathryn wears lingerie a few times in the film, but my favorite is this black cotton corset and the dark coral bra, which she layers and pairs with black pants and heels for an outerwear look.

Looking for something similar? This basic Longline Underbust Corset in Cotton from Orchard Corset, paired with this Almost Famous Shoelace Bra from Made by Niki. the corset looks very much like the one that the character wears and the Made by Niki bra offers texture and color similar to the bra in the film in a modern design.

Romeo is Bleeding / 1993

Lena Olin plays a sexy psychopath mixed up with dirty cops and she’s basically the drug kingpin in this classic and underrated 90’s flick. She wears lingerie quite a few times in the film, but my favorite is this full bodysuit she wears over a black bra.

Looking for something similar? Check out this gorgeous made to order Sexy Lace Bodysuit from Nearer the Moon. This bodysuit features a semi-sheer design with an interesting floral design, long sleeves, and an open back. This design is definitely a super sexy modernized version of the one that Mona Demarkov (Lena Olin’s character in the film) wore.

Bound / 1996

Jennifer Tilly wears this black chemise with lace at the bust in the movie Bound. While it’s not a super unique design, it’s easy enough to find a suitable modern take on this design. Jennifer proves that lingerie can be basic and sexy.

Looking for something similar? This black Phoebe Chemise from Ophelia King has lace at the bust and at the waist and is a great alternative and adds a bit more flair to a classic black lace trimmed chemise.


Empire Records / 1995

Liv Tyler was the epitome of cool in Empire Records, and I’m loving her mix-matched lingerie! She wears a red bra and white briefs.


Looking for something similar? This basic June Brazilian Brief paneled panty from Passionata is a great updated look for the white undies Liv sports, and the modern design of the Arpege Magic Air Mini Bustier Bra from Huit is both cute and adds a fashionable quality to a simple red bra.

Jawbreaker / 1999

They killed the teen dream! The girls in this movie are all sorts of manipulative yet oh so fashionable. The movie does however show Rose Mcgowan in a cute pink babydoll.

Looking for something similar? This Tea Garden Chemise from Elle Macpherson is a mix of sexy and playful, similar to the babydoll design worn by Rose McGowan’s character in the film. This chemise has an undated design a color, but still has a touch of playfulness and a youthful design.

Pretty Woman / 1990

Possibly Julia Roberts most famous role and definitely the one who put her on the map there are a few scenes of her character wearing lingerie such as a chemise, and bra, but I really like this bra and panty set she wears.

Looking for something similar? It reminds me of the Sirena Bra in Platinum from Kiss Me Deadly, pictured on the left. That set isn’t available anymore but it’s definitely a close match. Another great match, that is currently available is the Amelie Bra from Miss Mandalay, pictured on the right.

Fools Rush In / 1997

Salma Hayek is always gorgeous, and she’s funny and charming in this film too. The scene where she married Matthew Perry’s character in Las Vegas, she wears this lovely silky chemise.

Looking for something similar? This gorgeous Sophia Bridal Chemise is lovely, slinky, and made of 100% silk with spaghetti straps and lace on the cups. A lovely updated look that is similar to what Salma wears.

Cry Baby / 1990

Traci Lords as the totally fierce and fun sexy Drape girl in Cry-Baby. This shot of her in stockings and a black corselette is in the extended directors cut of the film and deleted scenes.

Looking for something similar? Kiss Me Deadly makes a gorgeous black Vargas Dress corselette and they also have matching Cervin Seduction Seamed Stockings in their shop as well to complete the look. Cry Baby girls love KMD!

2 Days in the Valley / 1996

The ever beautiful Charlize Theron dons a lovely sheer polka dot bodysuit paired with a satin robe, simple and sexy as both lingerie and loungewear.

Looking for something similar? This modern and pretty white Daisy Bodysuit from La Lilouche, is made of sheer white mesh with satin covered crotch, removable garters and instead of polka dots, modern handbeaded flower embellishments. The simply and comfy white satin The Mrs Wrap from In Bloom by Jonquil looks just like the robe that Charlize wore, and would look great paired with this bodysuit.

Waiting to Exhale / 1995

The film Waiting to Exhale has a few lingerie scenes with the various women wearing a bra, or bodysuit, or chemise. I really like this lace balconette bra and black robe and thought it was perfectly 90’s but also easy to re-create using modern lingerie styles.

Looking for something similar? Try this beautiful and modern take on the lace balconette with the El Color Rojo Bra from La Perla and this sheer black Kimono Robe from BlueBella.

Austin Powers the Spy Who Shagged Me / 1999

Elizabeth Hurley starred in the totally crazy and psychedelic comedy and had this cute chemise. The style is very 90’s, when slip dresses were also worn as outerwear quite often too.

Looking for something similar? This pretty Indulgence Chemise from Julianna Rae is a really beautiful and modern take on the chemise that Elizabeth Hurley wears in the movie. With white floral lace at the bust and a thicker trim at the bottom hem.

The Crow / 1994

One of my favorite movies of the 90’s, The Crow mostly features the amazingly gorgeous Brandon Lee avenging the deaths of him and his fiance. There are a few scenes with lingerie including a robe, long gown, bustier, and what looks to be a black babydoll or slip with lace at the bust worn by the troubled character Darla.

Looking for something similar? Try this gorgeous underwire Alexis Babydoll from Affinitas Parfait. The babydoll has lace at the bust and offers support while the design is truly a pretty and modern take on the chemise in the film.

Drop Dead Gorgeous / 1999

This black comedy is one of my favorites from the 90’s, about a beauty pageant in a super small rural town and all of the ups and downs as sometime tries to sabotage Kirsten Dunst’s character. At one point in the movie, a few of the girls, including Amber (the character played by Kirsten) is changing between acts and is seen in a somewhat vintage style slip.

Looking for something similar? This Champagne Slip from Amelia Thomas is a great pick, because of the cream color and the vintage style of this modern slip. It looks comfy, it’s soft and made of 100% silk with lace trim. Made to order in the UK.
