Elinor Lloyd-Philipps the nylon swish

I love trying new things, and recently I recorded a podcast with Kia of This Retro Life. I have to be honest and say that I was so incredibly nervous leading up to the recording, even though it was a very low-key event, over skype. I am quite an introvert (believe it or not!) and find these sorts of things intimidating. However, Kia made everything very easy and after a few minutes I just felt like I was chatting with an old friend.

I love Kia’s recap of the pocast, here:

Have you ever taken a selfie in your underwear and posted it online?

It’s a concept that probably has you feeling pretty anxious! But thankfully for the vintage community there are ladies brave enough to do it and one of these is Elinor from The Nylon Swish.

Not only is Elinor an absolute delight, she is also so knowledgeable about all things vintage underwear, corsets, stockings and foundations.

We were lucky enough to be able to tap into that knowledge on Episode 2 of This Retro Life.

Hear how a man introduced Elinor to the ways of vintage underwear, the incredible rumours and comments she’s heard about what happens if you wear a corset and find out everything you need to start building your vintage foundation collection.

If you would like to listen to the podcast, click here to hear my goofy laugh (consider yourselves lucky that I didn’t swear, snort or cackle).

Thank you Kia!
