Swinging Dita Von Teese launches her lingerie range... with the help of a giant sequinned bra

She's more likely to be seen doing a twirl in a giant Martini glass.

But for the launch of her signature range for Wonderbra, Dita Von Teese tried on something little bigger for size - a giant padded bra.

Dita's elaborate routines have featured her riding crystal horses or dancing with strategically placed pink feathers.

She's a swinger: Dita Von Teese launches her lingerie range with the help of a giant sequinned bra in London today

But today dressed in a peach evening gown and heels, the world-renowned queen of burlesque launched her new line of vintage-inspired pieces from the cups of a huge sequinned bra in Covent Garden.

Wonderbra by Dita Von Teese is a combination of 1950s shapes and 1940s fabrics and is her first line of designed garments.

Von Teese used her fascination with vintage underwear, taking inspiration from her own collection, to help her designs.

The pieces include a mixture of suspenders, thongs and bras, which Von Teese says are so comfortable that she wears them regularly.

Vintage beauty: Dita took inspiration for the range from her own collection of vintage 1940s and 50s lingerie

She said: 'Every woman needs a little moment of beauty to have for herself.

'Underwear isn't just something that you put on for your lover - you wear it for you.'

She added: 'I love it when you can go about your daily business with the knowledge that you have a little secret of your own on underneath.

'Lingerie shouldn't be something you just put on for your lover; you should do it for you.

'It's not about seducing men, it's about embracing womanhood.'

The collection is available in stores across Europe from today.
