Playtex Living Long Line Bra UNUSED Vintage 1950s lingerie in box BLACK 34B


A classic Playtex "Living" long-line bra
Style number 1261
This is a vintage item, made in the 1950s but never used.
It is unsold shop stock from the 1950s.
It is still in its original packet - the packet is scuffed and rather tatty, but the garment itself is in beautiful condition.
 
It was made before the days of fabric composition labels.
The label says:
Sanforized Regd SHRUNK
FABRIC Contains NYLON
(Sanforization was a process for shrinking fabric, so that it didn't need to be washed and shrunk "at home" before it could be worn.)
 
The box says:
ALL ELASTIC FRAME FOR HEAVENLY COMFORT AND FIT
THE BRA THAT BANISHES 'SPARE-TIRE' FOREVER
Bias-cut Elastic side panels move with you, breathe with you
Elastic criss-cross front lets you reach and stretch freely
Elastic Magic Midriff gives the smoothest bust-to-hip line ever
There is no date of manufacture on the box, but it has a UK patent number that was granted in the 1950s.
 
Handwashable
 
Size:
34B
 
Condition:
New and in original packet.
This is unsold shop stock from the 1950s.
The item is about half a century old, and the packet does not look "brand new", for obvious reasons.
The box is scuffed , creased, and damaged at the edges, as shown.
The original price is printed on the box.
It was 47/- (forty-seven shillings).
In view of the age of this garment, if you are thinking of wearing it, please wash it first, with great care.
It is very old, and it is unlikely to last very long in everyday use.
