Vintage lingerie

Our collection of vintage Sears catalogues provide a fascinating glimpse into everyday Americana of the 1950s. This scan from the 1950 spring edition shows two beautiful girdle designs from the lingerie pages.

The design on the left:
"Jr. Girdles, 3 lengths" - Lustrous rayon and cotton satin . . . front panel is attractively stitched. Cotton elastic sides. Three light bones at front for tummy control...

The design on the right:
"Waist Whittler" - Get set for the spring fashions. French styling by Charmode to "nip-in" your waist the fashionable way; makes your clothes fit better, look smarter...
