It’s time for a history lesson….. a bra history lesson! :)
Bras have been around since the late 19th century. By the early 20th century, more contemporary style bras had emerged. Since then, the garment has evolved in both shape and trend.
The Little Bra Company comprised a list of 6 iconic bra moments in the last 50 years.
There’s a reason Bettie Page earned the title “Queen of Pin-Up.” Men couldn’t resist her jet black hair, and signature bangs. Bettie Page became one of the very first pop culture idols by showing her bra in magazines.
This iconic photograph of Raquel Welch in the 1966 movie “One Million Years B.C.” is probably one of the greatest movie posters of all time. A gorgeous woman wearing mankind’s first bikini: who doesn’t love that? Because of this famous picture, Raquel quickly became the star of the film (even though she only had one line!).
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. we were introduced to Star Wars’ Princess Leia, better known as Carrie Fisher. The opening scene of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi shows Princess Leia in a brass bikini. Since then, she has been the fantasy of every man and jedi on earth and in space.
The cone bra was a popular selling bra the in 1940’s and 50’s. So what made Madonna’s cone bra so shocking? She severely exaggerated the shapes of the cones and wore it as a costume for a performance. Madonna definitely knows how to make headlines!
On July 10, 1999 the US Soccer team won the Women’s World Cup! The victory in the final game was a result of a penalty kick given by Brandi Chastain. To celebrate her goal, Brandi slid onto her knees, took off her jersey, and threw hear hands in the air. This picture became an iconic image and graced the covers of numerous magazines.
Lady Gaga is one of the most creative artists the world has ever known. When asked about her Pyro Bra, she spoke about a vision she had of her breasts exploding and asked the Haus of Gaga to make it happen. As we all know, Haus of Gaga achieved the Pyro Bra and Lady Gaga has been seen wearing the creation many times.
