Lingerie on ice
Foundation garments for women were popular in the 1950s, bolstered by the fashion for Dior's wasp waists and an exaggerated feminine silhouette.
'Girl's Best Friend: Foundation Garments Modelled on Ice Rink' is a prime example of a marketing focus on the freedom of movement these modern garments offer when compared with previous types of corsetry.
