While everyone else is chasing the latest trends, stand out from the crowd by indulging in a classic, sensual look that never goes out of style: the va-va-voom allure of 1950s pin-up girls.

We love pin-up styled hair, make-up and outfits for their cheeky, fun and undeniably flirtatious flair. Paint on some red lipstick and winged eyeliner, fix your hair in some victory rolls, and saunter down the street in high heels paired with a cinched-waist dress. We dare you not to turn heads (and truthfully, that’s one dare we know you’re going to lose, babe).

Wherever you are in the world, dressing like a pin-up girl is a surefire way to send jaws dropping, whether out on the town or in the bedroom.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite pin-up inspired lingerie styles to kick-start your newest obsession. If you really want to wow someone in the sack, you can’t go wrong with these sexy numbers that look unique and stunning for every body shape.

The Classic Triple Threat

Pin-up fashion does not scrimp on the details. From stockings to garter belts to matching waist cinchers, bras and undies, this lingerie niche might have you prepping in the bathroom for hours (but we promise it’ll be worth the look on your partner’s face).

The Rosemary Bra Set pairs modern touches – like thong panties and a strappy bra top – with pin-up girl staples like a waist-cinching garter belt and delicate floral details. Strap some traditional pin-up thigh-highs to your garters, like the Lois Sheer Classic Thigh High, to complete the look.

Va-Va-Voom Mama

Our team of lingerie experts at Lover’s Lane understands that body positivity is all about embracing what you’ve got, however much or little you’re comfortable in revealing. Pin-up clothing and lingerie ranges from the daringly skimpy to the conservative but sexy, and if your tastes fall in the latter group, you can still find tons of flattering styles for your curves.

If you’re looking to cinch and cover without sacrificing dead-sexy, try on the Katarina Bra Set. The high-waisted undies are perfect for hiding tummy insecurities (which are totally valid to have, gals), while the strapless bra top gives boobies a boost.

Visions in Vintage Lace

This next stunningly designed, pin-up-esque lingerie set looks angelic in faded rose and lace, but you’ll feel devilish when donning the Vintage Rose Lace 2-Piece Set.

The choker-style neckline and cascading, lace bra draw attention to your finer feminine parts, like the collar bone and curvature of the breasts. But what you’ll truly adore are the peek-a-boo lace panties. Turn around and flash that sumptuous booty in true pin-up style with a full coverage, lace back that shows off just a hint of bum cleavage at the top.

The Cuban Foot Backseam Pantyhose make a perfectly classic addition to the attached garter belt.

Loud and Proud in Leopard Print

Leopard-spotted outfits may not have been a staple of the original 1950s wardrobe, but jungle animal prints are wildly popular with modern pin-up girls today.

The Pretty Pin-Up Bra and Garter Skirt Set has all the makings of a hot rod calendar model starlet. A bust-boosting lace bra, hip and waist-accentuating, see-thru skirt, and – of course! – attached garters are off-the-charts hot in loud cheetah print.

Picture yourself next to a red convertible in sky-high heels, and don’t forget the thigh-highs! The Back Seam Net Thigh High stockings take this look to the next level by mixing a pin-up must-have – back seam stockings – with head-turning fishnet.

Unstoppable Sex Appeal

Nothing screams pin-up passion like the color of fire engines, stop signs and muscle cars – in-your-face bright red.

Curvy bods will kill it in this skin-tight, see-thru number with a peek-a-booty back. The Classic Lingerie Chemise is fit for a red-lipped, winged eyeliner queen. Scalloped lace details outline your bust and bum while the attached garters draw attention to the legs.

Pair this look with the black Sheer Back Seam Plus Size Stockings for added dimension, or go all-out red in the Claudia Fence Net Thigh High.

Kick Up Your Heels

Last but certainly not least, no true pin-up princess is complete without a pair of foxy high heels.

The Domina Ankle Wrap Sandle look a bit like an old-school, 1950s vacation girl shoe style, but in shiny black, these strappy heels show off your dominant side.

What’s a pin-up wardrobe without a platform heel that goes with literally everything? The rounded, refined Bordello Teeze platforms can add a vintage touch to any outfit or lingerie set.

Keep it 100% classic and classy with a pair of shiny, pointed-toe heels. These 5-Inch Patent Pumps can be worn in the bedroom or out to the jukebox joint for a night of dancing.

Channel the original Hollywood pin-up look with a pair of furry, heeled slides, like the Sasha Marobou Slipper or the Amour Bedroom Heel. Surprise your partner (or just feel sexy as hell while home alone) by wearing these decadent heels around the house or while doing your 1950s hot housewife thing in the kitchen.
