Though she's no stranger to posing in her skivvies, burlesque queen Dita Von Teese's latest striptease is a special one, as it marks the launch of her own Von Follies lingerie line.

Available exclusively at Target stores in Australia (sigh, we know) beginning February 2012, the racy collection takes inspiration, as expected, from Von Teese's love of 1950s pinups.

Designed in collaboration with Lime Door Brands, the flirty offerings include retro high-waisted briefs; feminine grosgrain, eyelet, and ribbon details; garter belts; corsets; and overwire bras available up to an E cup.

"There are so many vintage lingerie pieces I love that I haven't been able to find in all my years of collecting," the brunette bombshell says in a press statement. "I wanted to design pieces that are tributes to my vintage obsessions, to make them beautiful and functional, while modernizing them for everyday wear.

"I've had a longtime fascination with the 1950s-era overwire bras. It's something that has been quite a task to create, but the end result is so chic, and so unique, I'm very proud of it. It's a statement piece meant to be seen. I am also very happy with the beautiful panties we've made and can't wait to have them in my lingerie drawer! They are so comfortable and sexy, and flattering on any shape."

Color- and fabric-wise, the collection spans from racy red and animal prints to pale satin and black lace overlay. As with her new Muse dress collection, Von Teese ensured that fuller frames were also accommodated.

"Size range was one of the first things I asked when I was approached to create this collection," she says.

"It was important to me to accomplish the task of making these beautiful things in sizes that can make any woman feel sexy and glamorous, and I'm very proud that we have been able to do that, while keeping prices affordable."

Sounds great. Of course, that flight to Australia might add up ...
