Munsingwear Victory Promotion Bra and Girdle set

Munsingwear Victory Promotion Bra and Girdle SetThis cotton bra and girdle with a stars-and-stripes motif was not marketed but used as a gimmick to support the war effort and promote Munsingwear’s wartime underwear sales.

The company, headquartered in Minneapolis, designed and manufactured a wide variety of undergarments for men, women and children. This collection documents the availability and use of a variety of fabrics--silk, lace, synthetics and rubber--in the underwear industry from the 1880s to the 1980s.
