30s 40s Pink Satin Brassiere Cone Women's S/M by Wonder-Bra VFG
A rare find - a 30s satin cone bra. It is structured similarly to a bathing suit top of that era - unlined, darting to shape the cups from the center and the bottom, with a basque style vee. Straps are adjustable with metal sliders.
SIZE: Labeled 305 M 34
|Bust||32 to 33"||81 to 84|
|Ribcage||26 to 27"||66 to 68.5|
FABRIC/COLORS: satin, probably rayon in a pinkish shade of peach. The shoulder straps and insets at the top of the cups are done in grosgrain ribbon. There is soft net edging the top edges of the bra, probably to protect the skin.
TAGS: Wonder-Bra, with Diagonal SLA... and the rest is inside a seam. Slant? Slashes?
CLOSURES: 2 hooks and two pairs of eyes.
CONDITION: The fabric is intact and sturdy, except for a small area of wear near the hooks & eyes in back on the wearer's right side - see closeup. There are a few small stains, mostly on the elastic - see other closeup. The elastic back is stiff and has lost most of its ability to stretch - ribcage measurements reflect the two options for hook & eye.
