Women typically wore a petticoat which helped conceal a corset known as a waspie. Waspies helped define the waistline and had garters to support stockings. Tiny waists and high bust lines were the style of the day, which helped create a need for more constrictive, structured underwear. For instance, the circle stitched bra was designed to separate and lift the bust. Full-length slips and full skirted waist slips were worn in addition to uplift bras and girdles.
OH LOOK!! Marilyn lifted weights too! :)
