Vintage lingerie

This vintage lingerie scan from an early 1950s Sears catalogue was sent to The Pinup Files some ago. It has to be one of our favourite examples of vintage catalogue art and we thought we'd share it with you.

Note the science fiction influences (which was big box office and an obsession throughout the 50s) in the title of the New "Heavenly Bodies" ensemble. Girdles and bras for the atomic age and what every fashionable inter-galactic femme fatale would be wearing under her space suit.
