- Lingerie Designer
- Specialty: Shapewear
Dottie’s Delights strives to support female curves in all senses of the word by providing high-end lingerie that focuses on attractive design, fit, and function with an emphasis on the quality attention to detail and technique found in mid-century vintage foundations.
Named after her grandmother, Dottie’s Delights is the work of designer Stephanie Kuhr, who has always had an affinity for the vintage aesthetic. She graduated from junior high in a 1930′s ribbon dress and never looked back! She is particularly influenced by the sexy, confident, and empowered women of burlesque and pin-up — both from modern and past eras. The utmost attention is paid to high quality and authentic workmanship, trying to reproduce as close as possible the craft that was put into mid-century clothing.
Based out of Chicago, Stephanie was selected as one of 6 designers in residence at the Chicago Fashion Incubator for 2010, which is a non-for-profit program sponsored by the City of Chicago and Macy’s that assists designers in gaining the right tools to successfully launch a business in fashion.
Dottie’s Delights caters to a custom clientele ranging from discerning brides, performance artists, and vintage aesthetic connoisseurs, but also produces a full collection each season in a size range of XS-2X and 32-36 B-DD.
We love all lingerie, but our specialty is shapewear/foundation wear. We pride ourselves in pieces that not only look great, but are functional and offer heavy duty support, too! Vintage style shapewear is like a sweet little hug of support and a your best friend assuring you that you look great!
