Performance By Dita Von Teese Sex kitten and world renowned glamor puss, Dita Von Teese is the reigning queen of wearing lingerie. Between her burlesque career, expanding lingerie line and history as an employee at a lingerie shop, she’s basically the underpants authority–sorry, Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Today on Today, the modern day icon of retro mystique talked about her influences like Gypsy Rose Lee and Sally Rand, her personal collection of historical underthings, and explained a few of the darling garments from her line. 

I’m particularly obsessed with these pieces:

If you feel a little sheepish about wearing such racy underpinnings, the esteemed Von Teese has got you covered. She also offered a few pointers  for women on buying, wearing and feeling good in sexy underthings. Her advice is as sexcellent as you’d expect.

Here are Dita Von Teese’s 3 lingerie tips to live by*:

  • Get fitted and wear your actual size to achieve peak glamor. If you don’t like your size, cut the tags out!
  • Buy more than one pair of underwear to mix and match with your bras. Extra gold stars for experimenting with new styles.
  • Wearing underwear is practically mandatory, so take pleasure in it!
