Dottie’s Delights strives to support female curves in all senses of the word by providing high-end lingerie that focuses on attractive design, fit, and function with an emphasis on the quality attention to detail and technique found in mid-century vintage foundations.
She is particularly influenced by the sexy, confident, and empowered women of burlesque and pin-up — both from modern and past eras. The utmost attention is paid to high quality and authentic workmanship, trying to reproduce as close as possible the craft that was put into mid-century clothing.
Founded in Chicago, Stephanie was selected as one of 6 designers in residence at the Chicago Fashion Incubator for 2010, which is a non-for-profit program sponsored by the City of Chicago and Macy’s that assists designers in gaining the right tools to successfully launch a business in fashion.
Since then, Dottie’s Delights continues to produce two collections each year, each inspired by a different facet of a vintage aesthetic from the turn of the century through the early 1960’s. Dottie’s Delights has been featured in major publications with industry heavyweights including Carine Roitfeld and Ellen Von Unwerth, and in top TV period dramas including Showtime’s Masters of Sex. Our pieces have been worn by celebrity figures including Holly Madison, Liz Goldwyn, Renee Olstead, Stoya, Violet Chachki, Sabina Kelley, and by burlesque performers and troupes the world over. In 2014, Dottie’s Delights partnered with vintage icon Mosh for a collaborative collection “Sheer Show” to great success that continues to be a best seller season after season. In 2015, Stephanie relocated to Nashville, TN and continues to expand the business as excitement and awareness continue to grow.
Striving to offer a wide size range, current collections include XS-3X and bra sizes up to an F cup in our standard range, as well as continuing to offer custom sizing and design alterations, even as our production process expands.
We love all lingerie, but our specialty is shapewear/foundation wear. We pride ourselves in pieces that not only look great, but are functional and offer heavy duty support, too! Vintage style shapewear is like a sweet little hug of support and a your best friend assuring you that you look great!
