Trashy Lingerie was started in 1973 by shoe designer Mitch Shrier and his wife Tracy. The store was named after a sling-back shoe called the “Trashy.” The Shriers entered the lingerie business by hand-dying stockings
in bright colors, offering customers more than the limited choices of black, white or nude. Very quickly, the company developed a full line of lingerie resulting in the 8,000 products offered today including lingerie, costumes
and bathing suits
. Until the company went online in 1998, they were Hollywood’s best kept secret with a clientele that included Madonna
, Dolly Parton
, Kim Basinger
, Paris Hilton
, Mariah Carey
, Janet Jackson
, Gwyneth Paltrow
, Drew Barrymore
, Cameron Diaz
, Sheryl Crow
, Kate Bosworth
, Jenny McCarthy
, and many more. Trashy's designs have been seen in over 500 films, multiple television shows, commercials, concert tours, and hundreds of magazine features. All of the Trashy Lingerie designs are original, handmade and personally customizable.
