1960s Cotton Longline Bra 12B/34B


Availability: In stock

The key to getting your 1950s/60s silhouette and showing off your favourite vintage dress is this authentic 1960s longline bra featuring pointed cups. Made in New Zealand by Hickory brand. The main body is made from non-stretch white cotton and the cups are wire-free soft cups with horizontal seams and floral machine embroidery. There are boned channels, two at front sides and  two at back to give the body structure. Ribbed elastic panels at the back frame a hook and eye closure with two hook settings. The straps are non-stretch white cotton binding, finished with lengths of elastic at back and adjustable metal clasps at front. Extra soft scallop edged fabric panels line the inner corners of the cups. Lastly, a narrow band of eyelash lace finishes the top edge, lingerie elastic finishes the waistband and a little pale blue applique adds a pop of colour.
