M&S lingerie has a rich heritage, launching their very first bra in 1926! And to celebrate the 2012 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in the UK, they’ve dug into the unique M&S Archives to take inspiration from the lingerie styles which were popular in the Marks and Spencer ranges 60 years ago.
In the early 1950s, bras came in three sizes; small, medium and large. Today M&S sell over 40 sizes in many of their bra ranges, with cup sizes ranging from an AA cup through to a K cup! (If you’re a big busted lady, I highly recommend buying bras from Marks & Spencer – they really know how to make a supportive bra!)
Iconic 1950s lingerie styles included sweater girl conical bras, flirty french knickers, slinky teddies, shaping corselettes and suspender girdles. These 1950s, vintage styles inspired M&S talented designers to create these unique, sassy, archive-inspired, Limited Collection lingerie, sleepwear and sexy shaping underpinnings.
My absolute favorite, must-have from this collection is the Limited Collection Vintage Satin Bra (shown above).
