Dita Von Teese is teaching women to be "glamorous" with her lingerie.

The burlesque beauty has her own range of vintage-inspired underwear called Von Follies.

Dita enjoys pushing the boundaries for her range and is thrilled by its success with female wearers.

“This [range] shows an evolution. And the thing that I feel like now I'm finding is that when I put something more risqué in the line, women are responding to it,” she told

“I'm showing women that being glamorous in everyday life is possible and there are all these little things that you can do. You know, I'm really excited about the way women are embracing what I'm showing them and what I really love.”

Dita, 41, has previously gushed about her love of garters. She became aware of them from a young age and now can’t get enough of the seductive accessories.

“A lot of [my love for garter belts] comes from the old movies I watched when I was a little girl with mom. All of those dressing-room scenes always intrigued me. I love the way a garter belt and stockings can frame your body and give you coverage,” she purred.

“It's sexy and erotic, but also classic and elegant and timeless. Also, it feels better to just pull my stockings and underwear off than wrestle my way out of tights and pantyhose. I like that I feel more free in them.”

While the raven-haired star doesn’t look to what other people are wearing for inspiration, she is happy to see items from her favourite era back.

“You know, I don't really follow the trends, but I love that people are starting to do the full-coverage briefs that go up to the waist again,” she added.

“You know, I don't feel good in teeny, little skimpy underwear, I feel sexier when I have my stomach covered and I love that '50s look."
