1935 slip, bra, and panty advertisements

Flattr this!

This entry is part 5 of 17 in the series 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company Catalog

Here are some catalog pages illustrating 1935 slip fashions, with a few bra and panty illustrations. I almost missed the pajama advertisement! Panties were in brief and bloomer styles- I almost mistook the shorts for being mens’ styles, because they are not the modern idea of panty briefs! It looks like under garments in the 1930s were made from biased cut knit rayon, silk crepe, cotton broadcloth, and taffeta.

Below are my vintage fashion scans:

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
