1950’s vintage bullet bras

Looking for that ‘sweater girl’ pin-up look of the late 40’s and 50’s?  Presently, I have a large stock of beautiful 1950’s vintage bullet bras to process online.  Add to this a large number of 1950’s vintage ‘non-bullet bras’ in various styles too.  They all come in a variety of sizes and colours – although most tend to be either white, silvery white or black.  The bullet bras feature that familiar concentric stitching to the cups – you’d expect that of course.   Madonna brought the bullet bra back to everyone’s attention – or at least she thought she did – back in 1990 when she wore one on stage designed by Jean Paul Gaultier.  Actually, she was more than 40 years late and although the bullet (or ‘cone’, ‘pointy’ or ‘torpedo’) bra never really lost its appeal and was kept alive by aficionados and collectors who appreciated ground-breaking vintage fashion icons.  My stock comes from such a collection that I was lucky to acquire.  Actually, I am luckier than I think because although you can buy reproduction bullet bras these days, the genuine vintage article will always remain a little piece of fashion history……
