No, I'm not talking about the Disney classic. This tale I'm talking about is much, much darker. Directed by Julia Leigh and starring Sucker Punch's (and, erm, A Series of Unfortunate Events...) Emily Browning, this 2011 film depicts the haunting life of Lucy. She delves in to the world of the unknown, and unspoken desires. It explores erotica in a severely twisted and uncomfortable way. I recommend watching it purely because it's fascinating and so disturbing that you won't forget it. And also what I'm really here to talk about is lingerie!
This is the first glimpse of lingerie in the film! Now this is pretty plain, very comfortable and mismatching. This scene is before her job as a waitress and this is how she appears in the "interview". If you like this simple, cotton knickers and bra combo then look at Tezenis lingerie! I found this set to be almost identical except for the difference in colour

This is by far my favourite set featured in the film! I love the smaller 3/4 cup and the bow detailing. I think that the bra is like a hybrid of the Gia Shelf bra and the Nouvelle Justine padded bra both from Bordelle. Whilst the knickers are like the Nouvelle Justine 'O' briefs with a similarly coloured suspender underneath.
Now for the other waitresses! Clad in nothing but cupless triangle bras and unusual-looking suspender belts and stockings, these girls "look" is significantly different to that of Lucy's. I personally love this sexy ensemble especially with the weird draw on eyebrows too! I think that the Murmur bust harness is very similar to the bra except with studs, and the suspender belts are almost identical to Lascivious' Lila knickers.

This strappy cupless body that the waitresses wear, is made out of chiffon-style strips and drapes from the middle. Again, fancy embellished eyebrows here! Super edgy and cool. I thought that this was like a hybrid of the Xanthe bodysuit by Agent Provocateur and the Last Testament brief from Nichole de Carle.

Now finally for a robe! This peachy-pink robe drapes beautifully and has slightly short sleeves and matching tie. It reminded me of the Kriss Soonik velour wrap, although it is in grey it really simulates this kind of look with the fabric and shape.
