Charles James evening dress | Met Museum | 1948
What a shape! We can see the bullet bra being perfected here, in the late 1940s (from the Met).
Cotton and nylon bra | Met | late 1940s
Here you can see the start of the quintessential ’50s bust shape - getting more shape, but not nearly as pronounced as the bullet bra. It also has a very interesting wrap around, side button closure!
"Waspie" corset | V&A | 1948
Today’s theme is…mid-century support garments!
Skiing style in Life magazine, c. 1940s
Love those shades!
Knitted turban and muff/purse combo (how fab!), c. 1940s
Bathing Ensemble | LACMA | late 1940s
I love the idea of matching jackets for swimwear.. maybe that would help me from getting burnt, too :p
Street style, circa 1940s
