From an incredible collection of dead stock corsets, slimmers, bras, and more, in the box from a long closed down general store back room. This 1940s cotton bra by Gossard is so classically pinup! Simple hook closure, we have several of these available (note that they are sold by the individual bralette, not by the lot.)  Box not included by I will include it if anyone buys more than two bralettes!

Color is Sand Glo.

Note that there is little give in the closure, so this fits a 32″ chest and 34/36 cup size best.


The mannequin measures 32-24.5-34.

Size: 36

Chest: 32” (ribcage measurement)


4 – Deadstock Condition. These have never been worn. Note that fabric has spotting, structurally they are very wearable.

We rate on a scale of 1 to 4, 1 being as found and 4 being mint condition.

PLEASE NOTE: these measurements are exact. Chest measurements are taken flat and doubled. Please choose a garment that will fit you according to your preference- if you want a slim fit, choose a garment that is up to an inch smaller than your actual measurement (or if the fabric has stretch.) If the garment is a stiffer fabric or you prefer a looser fit, go 2-3 inches larger than your actual chest measurement, especially for outer wear.
