1950s Lingerie

above & below: Bettie Page

Here we are with lingerie of the 1950s, filled with bullet bras, high-waisted panties and silk slips! You can see that lingerie is becoming a bit more risque, and more mainstream in advertising. During this decade there seems to be a divide between the sex kitten/vamp lingerie and the sweet, innocent 'housewife' lingerie so demurely portrayed in most of these images.
We could talk about the history of lingerie during the 1950s, but frankly, that sounds pretty boring when the fun images in this post can speak for themselves!
