The shape’s the thing this spring - Berlei foundations. 1953.

It’s exciting to be a woman in Berlei, 1962.......I'm getting a Gilligan's Island vibe here. Oh to be stranded on some uncharted desert island with these four.

Little did you realize that the "fascinating art of being a woman" was all about your lingerie! Well, that's what this 1946 Berlei #vintage #lingerie #ad tells us.

Corset with bird embroidery Date: 1820–39 Culture: American Medium: Cotton, silk Accession Number: 2000.479 The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Corset

The corset ( Get your goth on with gothic punk clothing - a favorite repin of www.vipfashionaus... )

♥ remembering my Mom having one just like this. she was a size 1, yet every day she wore a coset, girdle or tight belt. Her waist was 19 then grew to 21"

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.

Early 1900s American petticoat made of silk. It's amazing to believe something this gorgeous would be hidden.

Cotton (sateen?) corset with metal and bone 1830–35, American - in the Metropolitan Museum of Art costume collections.

Brassiere, Cadolle (French, founded 1889): ca. 1957, French, synthetic.

1960s Ah the full slip had ones in almost every color. Now, I doubt anyone even wears a slip these days.
