Conical Bra


Walk Memory Lane

Conical Bra (1940s)

Actress Jane Russell was the first to popularize
this new style. Also known as bullet bras, these undergarments remained popular into the mid-1960s. They were so popular in the 40s and 50s that a lot of dresses had bust “darts” in the “wrong” place — this was to accommodate the conical bra most women were wearing. (If you can find one of these dresses, get yourself a conical bra and check out the difference. The misplaced darts will make sense.) Conical bras don’t look great under tight fitting clothing.

Conical bras received a bit of a resurgence in the late 1980s thanks to fashion chameleon Madonna, who sported such a bra in her video for Open Your Heart and while on tour. Today, conical bras have come back into fashion thanks to the AMC show, Mad Men, a show set in the 1960s.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
