Fashions in corsets and lingerie, year by year: 1900 - 1950

A slide show featuring advertisements and mail order catalog illustrations, with some magazine feature and manufacturer's material. Also shown are a few stocking ads that should amuse. The absence of the garter (in widespread use until 1930) from this material, seems odd - presumably they were covered by the lengthy bloomers. Also, in order the better to display their wares, manufacturers' photos for ads etc always show models wearing their underwear beneath, say, a hip girdle although from the early to mid 30s (and from the late 20s, in the case of the suspender belt) when corsetry could be worn next to the skin, it would be worn over it, in real life.
