The Goods: Get Downton-Era Romance With A 21st Century Bra

We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one stand-out steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a VPL bra for luring Turkish ambassadors into your bed. Not that you need any help with that.

No one can deliver a burn as well as Lady Grantham, but with an official Downton Abbey clothing line in the works, we’re thinking a velvet stole and maybe a tiara would help us get into character rather nicely.

It’s doubtful the collection will include lingerie, let alone anything sexy, but we’re positive that if Mary and Sybil (may God rest her soul) had come across this sporty mesh bra, they would’ve snatched it up faster than Julian Fellowes shattered our dreams at the end of season three. (We’re not bitter or anything.)

Just as stylish girls shed their corsets for looser fashions and even looser morals in the 1920s, today’s thoroughly modern woman has the option of no-underwire bras like this $95 model. Cutouts and color-blocking with saturated blues and orange further emphasize that this is something much better suited for a midnight tryst than a daytime jaunt into the village or afternoon tea with Maggie Smith.

Tug on a sheer-ish tank with low-cut arm holes, and you’ll leave all the gentlemen asking far naughtier questions than “Have you done something jolly with your hair?” When a bra’s this pretty, it’d be scandalous not to expose it.
