Hello:What superb advertisements. And we are old enough to remember seeing not such dissimilar signs in department stores in London in the 1950s.Enjoy your Sunday too. It is, sadly, rapidly slipping away.
Bless whoever invented Hold Ups! These look so uncomfortable! Happy Sunday to you too,Xx
Glad I dont have to wear those corsets!....probably need one but no way. Love old advertising.
Hilarious! 'velvet grip' is surely an oxymoron! The ads are very convincing though, I would probably be hooked in to get that perfect Edwardian silhouette!
You are so right about the underwear not looking comfortable, but they are sure fun to see. Thanks for sharing them, I did enjoy.
Tose suspenders look more like braces to me!Love from Mumxx
Ha, ha, those old ads certainly give me a laugh. Thank goodness the days of corsets are gone.Anne xx
Oh my! Can you imagine wearing those! Thanks for sharing! LOve your beautiful grannies on the last post! xo Heather
Old advertising is just the best :-) dee x
I am in desperate need of one of those corsets....Best wishesJenny
Perhaps she had industrial strength stockings to 'suspend'! I love these old ads Liz. Thanks for putting them on here.
Velvet grip sounds like it should be an erotic novel, the new 50 Shades!And the Formu corset which gives "undersized busts a pleasing suggestion of generous proportions" was clearly the chicken fillet/Wonderbra of its day! Plus ca change... Great ads, Liz! xxxx
~ Great vintage advertising, Liz..My~ how times have changed! People seem to let it all 'hang out' now, when they perhaps shouldn't hehe.I did notice YOU in Pretty Nostalgic Mag....Such a lovely read...With kind thoughts, Maria X
Great adverts, huge suspenders!! I wouldn't mind trying these out, though I don't need bust enhancers!
