Announcement   Dottie's Delights is lingerie for the vintage aesthetic connoisseur. I try to use a mix of vintage and modern materials whenever possible and exquisite laces, silks, soft microfibers, etc. I want your piece to be as functional as it is visually appealing. If you are a burlesque performer, pin-up model, or simply into the style of the glamourpuss of by-gone days, then you have come to the right place. Thank you! xoxo, dot!

I'm beyond amazed with the customer service I received. I placed a last minute order right before viva for this piece. When it arrived, there was part of it sewn improperly where the tie around the top would unravel if I touched it. This company went out of their way to ensure that I was able to return the defective piece and get a new one right before I left for viva. This was all over the span of one week. Great communication on their part. I absolutely love the gown! Is everything I had hoped for! Luxurious feeling, high quality and absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely be purchasing from Dottie's Delights again.

About

Luxury lingerie and shapewear for the vintage aesthetic connoisseur

Named after her grandmother, Dottie’s Delights is the work of designer Stephanie Kuhr, who has always had an affinity for the vintage aesthetic. She graduated from junior high in a 1930′s ribbon dress and never looked back!

She is particularly influenced by the sexy, confident, and empowered women of burlesque and pin-up — both from modern and past eras. The utmost attention is paid to high quality and authentic workmanship, trying to reproduce as close as possible the craft that was put into mid-century clothing.

Dottie’s Delights began with a custom clientele ranging from discerning brides, performance artists, and vintage aesthetic connoisseurs, but now focuses on producing a full collection each season in a size range of XS-3X with an extensive size range of underwire bras. We are proud to still be able to offer custom sizing on our products as much as we possibly can.

Originally from Chicago, Stephanie was selected as one of 6 designers in residence at the Chicago Fashion Incubator for 2010, which is a non-for-profit program sponsored by the City of Chicago and Macy’s that assists designers in gaining the right tools to successfully launch a business in fashion. Since then, Dottie's Delights is carried in dozens of boutiques around the globe and has been featured in an array of press including Interview magazine, CR Fashion Book, cosmopolitan.com, Playboy magazine, Bust magazine, Vogue Italia online, and more. Very early on, Stephanie and vintage model icon Mosh met to collaborate on photo shoots, discussing a mutual love of vintage design and hitting it off well. With Mosh's original sketches and plenty of input in the development process, they began collaborating on limited release pieces in 2012 with the Original Mosh Playsuit, and launched a full collection designed together in 2014 called "Sheer Show" to great success. In 2015, Stephanie moved to Nashville, TN and continues to grow the business supporting local industry.

All garments are handmade either in Nashville, TN or in Chicago, IL. Stephanie still continues to make many pieces herself, or with the assistance of local seamstress or local production contractors. Every single underwire bra is sewn by her personally. We work with as many US based vendors as possible, including some of our fabrics that are made in the US.

We love all lingerie, but our specialty is shapewear/foundation wear. We pride ourselves in pieces that not only look great, but are functional and offer heavy duty support, too! Vintage style shapewear is like a sweet little hug of support and a your best friend assuring you that you look great! ;)
