Joan Holloway, Peggy Olson and Betty Draper are the style icons of this season. Played by Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss and January Jones.Peggy’s character started out in series one as a very mousy plain Jane these actresses under the guidance of show stylist Janie Bryant have begun to adorn walls of teenage girls all over the world.
“Retro underwear is the key to getting the perfect silhouette” , according to Bryant.”I love a long line bra because it totally smooths the back and it’s seamless. It’s quite a piece of engineering.”
Getting the right foundation garments is the only way to pull off the figure hugging, sultry secretary shape.
According to show star Christina Hendricks ” The first day I put on the retro undergarments and I was walking around the office like boom, boom, boom. I’ve always had a bit of a walk — this girl’s got
hips — but on the show it’s exaggerated.”
In Bryants ” The Fashion File“, she gives advice to ensure that a woman’s clothes convey her personality, covering everything from where to find gorgeous vintage clothing and accessories and how to pair
those authentic garments with modern shoes and jeans etc .Learn how to find their perfect bra size, use color to convey a mood and so on.

What Katie Did Lingerie. Don't buy anything retro look–it will NOT look right.
I agree with Cholla Queen…finding the foundation garments is becoming more and more difficult…and expensive! Thanks for telling us about the book, though. :)
Have loved the mad men since the very first episode! Lizzie
The Fashion File is on my xmas list! I love the way Peggy Olsen gradually is changing from frump to glamour girl as the series develops.
Had no idea about the book! So glad to find it. Rumor is that Janie Bryant is going to start her own retro fashion line offered through either QVC or HSN (I forgot which). Love your blog! Will be blogrolling you!
Now the question is, where to find these "undergommints" as my grandma used to say.
Just ordered the book! Thanks for the heads up!
I've been watching Mad Men these days. What beautiful outfits and music!
I love the clothes on Mad Men. I think it's the main reason I watch the show (well, that and John Hamm). I also did a post on Mad Men fashion, right before my Mad Men-themed birthday party: GLOSSING OVER IT
