This is a vintage strapless bra made in Canada under the ”Minuet!” brand name by Gothic Cordtex/Dominion Corset. The bra is still in its original package, accompanied by the original price tag and bill, both priced at $7.85. The bill is dated 1947. The lingerie shop “Mme Courval” is still in existence, at least in its Sherbrooke St. location, and had already been in business for over 30 years at that time. The bra is sized as a 31” bust (Junior) - the bra measures 25” around at the strap unstretched and 26 1/2” fully stretched. It is made of pink satin and is in very good condition except for a light mark at the top of the left cup, maybe caused by moisture or makeup - I haven’t tried to remove the mark, but it is fairly minor (see last close-up photo). Otherwise, this looks like it saw little to no use. Hard to find original 40s era bras in their original package like this - great addition to a vintage lingerie collection!
