Vintage Hosiery

Vintage: What a beautiful word. Sounds like deep purple, old lace, and luxurious beauty… Feminine pantyhose, tights, back seams and cuban heels, thigh highs and old illustrations. #lovestruck!

The world's oldest push up bra actually dates to the early 1800s and several bra like patents were issued during that century but the credit for the first bra that provided both shape and support goes to Herminie Cadolle who patented her le bien-être (well-being) in 1889. By 1905, the upper half was sold separately as a soutien-gorge, a name still used in France today and she was also the first to use elastic. This Cadolle brassiere is from the 1950s.
