Last year the lingerie geniuses at Kiss Me Deadly unveiled a limited edition lingerie cape loosely inspired by Game of Thrones but mostly inspired by DRAMA, a quality in lingerie to which I wholeheartedly subscribe (see here and here and here and here and to infinity and beyond). While lots of lingerie functions practically in one’s everyday wardrobe (for comfort, support, sports, warmth, etc.), I like to balance the practicality of my lingerie drawer with the defiantly impractical– case in point, I am wearing a sheer lace bodysuit, floor-length silk robe, and marabou slippers while I write this post. Since seeing Kiss Me Deadly’s cape I’ve been on high alert for more lingerie capes, and I’m delighted to bring you a round-up full of frills and swishiness and DRAMA aplenty. While Kiss Me Deadly’s original cape is sadly sold out, here are some options that will hopefully suit all your lingerie-cape-wearing needs.
Ughhhh this is too cool for words.
Ruffles and sparkles!
A lingerie cape for femme fatales
Ruffles ruffles ruffles, also silk tulle is one of the loveliest fabrics around
omg this is divine
For all your latex cape-wearing needs
OMG THIS IS THE BEST, you can see it in action on some doofus at Curve, it is swirling sparkly silk perfection
and here’s a pretty silver one for the boudoir and also cocktail parties
What, how are these so beautiful?
Sweet and simple
I love the dramatic structure from this cape, and of course the matching corset is divine.
Honorable Mentions: Robes with Cape-like Tendencies
aka The Precious
The silk robe you wear if you are a superhero (psst I wear mine all the time, and it’s now on sale, hop to it)

This is some Miss Fisher realness right here

These are insanely gorgeous! I have no idea if I’d ever wear one of them, but they really are eye-catching. Why is it we don’t wear capes anymore period? Who doesn’t want to twirl around in a cape? Okay, I am sure there are some people, but I know I want to!

Several years ago I tried on this AMAZING tailored long wool cape at a vintage clothing store, maybe 1950s-1960s-ish, and it was beyond gorgeous, and I did not buy it, and I came home and told people about it and how I missed it, and they were all “psht, a cape, that sounds absurd and dumb”, and NOT A SINGLE AUTUMN HAS PASSED SINCE that I have not bitterly regretted not coughing up the $70 and buying that vintage cape. I was so young and foolish!!

Not lingerie, but I bought a reversible vintage 1950’s rain cape this year and have seriously fallen in love with it. I’m sure I look like a weird grandmotherly kook wearing it out and about, but I do not care.
