1955 Girdle: Lily of France manufactured women's undergarments throughout the Dior era to shape and mold the female form into the desired New Look silhouette. This black, hip-length girdle, named "Enhance" was advertised to be "so far ahead of its time, it's perfect for the New Look! ....Enhance slims you up-and-down, elongates the figure...instead of crowding it round and round. And Enhance takes inches off your hips, years off your figure...all without a stabbing bone or bulging seam!"
