My favorite piece from the Bricolage collection! This very special black lace bra features Chantilly lace with a structured sheer nylon lining, giving you plenty of support in a modified, subtle vintage bullet bra way. The scalloped eyelash edge lays on your decolletage demurely, and would look lovely peeking out of a low cut top. This piece is featured in the Underpinnings Museum.
A rayon ribbon bow detail is stitched into the center of the bra as an homage to the construction of bras in the 40s and 50s with a ribbon material and technique found in popular fashion of the 1930's.

Our robes come in 2 sizing options—size 1 will fit smaller frames and size 2 is for the plus size and broad-shouldered clientele. While the piece is very open and flexible, I would recommend size 1 for XS-L and size 2 for XL-3X, roughly speaking!
To determine glove size, measure the palm at its widest point across the knuckles. The small should fit roughly 6-7" circumference, the medium should fit 7-8" circumference, and the large should fit 8-9" circumference.

Quality Takes Time
Dottie’s Delights is a small company, committed to ethical labor practices. The utmost attention is paid to high quality and authentic workmanship, as we work to reproduce as close as is possible the craft that was put into mid-century clothing.
- All our products are constructed here in our Nashville studio.
- Each piece is patterned by the designer and hand-cut by her or one of our team members.
- Then it’s put together by one of our small team of sewists (who are paid a living wage).
With that kind of attention to detail, we can guarantee that our high standards for quality are met and that each piece you order from us is built to last.
