dievca was looking to be inspired for Presentation Outfits: she ran into this video and it made her smile and think about options for Master. It seems like the most ‘ladylike’ outfits are from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
The 1910s are too covered and too involved for finding clothing pieces, the 1970s seem like novelty outfits – Disco-oriented, dievca lived the BIG HAIR era of the 1980s (she has a vintage Norma Kamali red satin dress…), the 1990s are back in style – now.
Ceil Chapman was an American fashion designer who worked in New York City from the 1940s to the 1960s. She was noted for creating glamorous cocktail and party dresses and for working with celebrity clients including television and movie actresses.

dievca needed a functional outfit that could bounce back and forth between hot and cold temperature-wise. she shopped her closet for the Micheal Kors Sweater and Anorak and then got on a tear with the other aqua gear. Yes, it was a lot of color. But dievca stood out and received many compliments with the unexpected, non-NYC, color scheme. (Note: she had her Rag & Bone jeans hemmed, no ripped hems…).
A bustier (alternatively bustiere) is a form-fitting garment that is traditionally worn as lingerie. Its primary purpose is to push up the bust by tightening against the upper midriff and forcing the breasts up, while gently shaping the waist. A bustier resembles a basque, but it is shorter. It reaches down only to the ribs or waist.
Modern bustiers are often made with mesh panels rather than the traditional boning. Nowadays, it might also be worn as a push-up bra under a low-backed dress, or as a camisole for outer wear. Details

Rompers appeared in the United States of America in the early 1900s. They were popular as playwear for younger children because people thought they were ideal for movement. They were light and loose fitting, a major change from the much more restrictive clothing children wore during the 19th-century Victorian era. Their popularity peaked in the 1950s when they were used by children as playwear and by women as leisure—and beachwear.
While rompers had been popular among women in the 1950s, they re-emerged in the 1970s as a fashion for adult women. In the 1970s rompers were usually a casual garment made of terrycloth, and often in a tube top style. They were common in the 1980s in a wider variety of materials such as silky fabrics for evening wear.
Since 2006, rompers have enjoyed a minor renaissance as a fashionable garment for women. Though much less common, rompers for men have been produced. In the 2010s the “sleep romper” for women gained popularity, being similar in style to the teddy, but with the appearance of shorts.
The Romper, the Teddy and the Bodysuit have few differences. They are all one-piece lingerie styles. They have a top and bottom that are connected to each other.
Since every lingerie brand defines styles differently, the same style that one brand calls a teddy might be called a romper by another.
In dievca’s mind:
Romper = a full body piece of lingerie which is worn looser, may have an elastic waist and shorts on the bottom half.
Teddy = A full body piece of lingerie which is similar to a one piece swimsuit or bodysuit, but is looser and made of a sheer or silky fabric.
Bodysuit: skintight, formfitting garmet which covers the torso and crotch. Normally made out of a stretch fabric.
