1920s bridal lingerie either tailored or very fancy (1920)

From The Evening Missourian – June 2, 1920

Many girls this season are confining their trousseau lingerie more strictly to wash materials than have brides of the past few years. Outside of the negligee and a few other pieces of silk underwear, the rest is usually of cotton, but the cotton materials chosen are more varied than ever before.

However, first let us consider the negligee — that garment that every girl looks upon a vital part of the trousseau. The slip-over models of crepe de chine are especially pretty this season. A beautiful apricot one has a large butterfly embroidered in blue on the left side.

Getting ready for the wedding Bridal lingerie (1920)

Many are choosing breakfast coats of taffeta or two-toned satin instead of the more flowing negligees. For the latter type, a georgette cape edged with silk lace worn over a crepe de chine slip is good.

The bride’s trousseau

Every trousseau should contain a little matinee of crepe de chine or georgette. With a pretty petticoat or slip, one can be so easily slipped on to meet the unexpected caller. Rosebuds and lace usually furnish the trimming for these.

Much of the prettiest wash underwear is trimmed with fine Irish crochet or filet lace. Gowns and teddy bears of handkerchief linen or nainsook have insets of Irish crochet and tiny hand-run tucks as their only trimming.

Hand hemstitching is another popular trimming this year. A pretty teddy has a row of the hemstitching around the top and three rows across the front. The rows in the front terminate in little colored flowers of French knots. The shoulder straps are also hemstitched.

Voile has invaded the field of undies, and bids to become a favorite. The white is usually bound with colored voile. A little gown of white has the neck, bottom and armholes bound with blue. A blue basket is stitched on the left side, and French knot flowers fall from it.
