Vintage 20s Flapper Bandeau Bra Pink Woven Cotton Binding Brassiere


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

From the flapper era, here is a bandeau bra or binding bra made of a pink cotton fabric, woven with a satin pattern, and with elasticized insets and cotton straps.  It does up with three hooks and eyes at the back. There is no label.

In the 1920s a boyish flat bust line was considered more desirable and the majority of women could only achieve this effect by binding their breasts with a bandeau bra . These were worn mainly in the early part of the decade - they supported the breasts by compressing them. These types of bandeau bra were constructed by using a simple band of fabric and they were the bras of choice at that time.

Please rely on the following measurements for fit, all given in inches.

Bust: 32” taken in the centre of the bra 

Bottom of bra: 29” unstretched - 30 1/2” stretched out

Overall length: 12” measured flat from the top of the straps to the bottom of the bra

Condition is very good with no noted wear, staining or other defect.

This is a hard to find flapper era bandeau bra - great if it fits!
