Fashion Doll Friday: Sindy in Undie World c1963

Today’s Friday Girl is Sindy but not the Sindy I had hoped to show you. Some weeks ago I pre-ordered one of the new playline Sindy’s. I had no idea when she would be available or how long I’d have to wait. Yesterday I got a notification that I had a parcel to pick up at the shop and got a bit excited. “Maybe it’s Sindy.” I thought. I decided to hold off doing my Friday post till I had picked up the package.

Well, I went to the shop and was handed a flat envelope. Definitely not Sindy. So now at 2:30pm I’m substituting one of my MIE Sindy’s wearing her 1963 underwear set. This outfit was last photographed back in about 2014. It is pretty fragile and I don’t like to handle it much. I do also have the little girdle that goes with this outfit but I don’t think I have ever put it on a doll. To be honest, when I was a child, I didn’t even know what it was. I thought maybe it was some kind of head band.



    • I know mum and my aunt used to wear them. I remember mum getting me to try one on when I was around 11 or so. I refused to wear it although when I was older I did wear panty girdles occasionally. Modern shapewear is much nicer although I don’t wear that now either.

  1. She is a lovely doll and the outfit is lovely. I only have the nightshirt part of it. My mum gave me a newspaper article about ‘Staid Sindy v Busty Barbie this week. There were pictures of early Sindy, Hasbro Sindy and Barbie. The so called early Sindy they had pictured was Vicki, Sindy ‘s friend. You’d think they would make sure they got their facts right before publication!
