Last week, on Tuesday September 23, the Destination Maternity Flagship Store got the retro-glam treatment as burlesque maven, fashion designer, and beauty icon Dita Von Teese stopped by to celebrate the launch of the Von Follies by Dita Von Teese for Destination Maternity capsule lingerie collection.

The seven-piece collection (which costs approximately $39-55)—which features limited edition bras and panties made just for new and expectant moms—is an extension of Dita’s popular Von Follies line. The look is fierce and feminine with retro touches. The regular “combines retro glamour with flirtatious touches” in Dita’s signature ‘50s pinup style—and the new maternity collection is no different. Styles in the capsule collection are crafted with soft stretch satin and beautiful lace and ribbon details, and includes bras with and without underwire, detachable cups for breast feeding, and a clip-down feature; all panties are designed with a subtle control panel.

Burlesque bombshell Dita Von Teese may be having a change of heart when it comes to motherhood. Previously, the 41-year-old said of having children, “Maybe it’s in the cards for me or maybe it isn’t, but it doesn’t diminish me as a human being if it’s not.” The provocateur is now reconsidering her ambivalence. “It’s definitely been something that’s on my mind,” she tells “It’s one of the things that came up in my life; I’ve been thinking about it a lot about since I created this line.”

San Fransisco Bay Guardian: Catching up with burlesque star and fashion icon Dita Von Teese
by Sean McCourt

“When I started making these shows, I started styling myself after retro looks because I felt that I couldn’t relate to any Victoria’s Secret models, or Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. That’s part of why I look to icons of the past like Marlene Dietrich, and Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable — I felt that created glamour was something I could maybe capture the spirit of.”


Dita Von Teese greeted fans at Bloomingdales in Westfield Centre on Tuesday, September 9, at 6 pm. Hopefully there will be photos soon!
