Holiday Gift Guide: Lingerie Inspired by Agent Carter

In some respects choosing pieces for the Agent Carter gift guide to accompany the Agent Carter editorial has been the easiest of the three, because at the time her story is set (late 1940s moving into the 1950s), women’s lingerie was starting to take on the shapes we’re familiar with today: underwire bras, garments like girdles […] Read more…
