Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese knows a thing or two about making an impression in sexy underthings, so it’s no surprise that her lingerie empire continues to grow. To celebrate her latest lingerie collection launch at Bloomingdale’s, we got her into the PEOPLE studios to ask some very pressing questions (Leather or lace? Diamonds or pearls?) in the sexiest round of “This or That” that’s probably ever run on the site. We don’t want to give too much away, so catch the clip below.

The ’50s-inspired collection features a variety of balconette bras, high-waisted briefs, wide garter belts and suspenders, with creative style names like “Her Sexellency.”

“My lingerie collection is very vintage inspired, and I always believe that every woman should own a great set of black lingerie — especially with lace — in her wardrobe,” Von Teese tells PEOPLE.

And for those a little more advanced in lingerie wearing, Von Teese urges you to wear her pieces outside of the bedroom. “I don’t believe that garter belts are just vanity pieces. I think they are practical and sexy and should be worn in every day life,” she says.

Von Teese’s collection is available now at Bloomingdale’s. For more tips from the star on wearing lingerie, watch below, and tell us: What do you think of her new line?
