Tailfins. Doris Day movies. Grey flannel suits. Tupperware parties. Yes, the 1950s were like that.
But that’s not all they were.
In the ‘50s, women’s clothes and the women who wore them reached a peak of tailored piquancy that hasn’t been matched since.
When you looked through magazines, you’d see photographs of supermodels in blouses like this. Wonderfully poised and glamorous.
And quite capable of inducing a tingle of adult excitement.
1950s Blouse (No. 6988). Flattering yoke seam across front of blouse from shoulder to shoulder. Classic cap sleeves. Curved bodice hem. Shaping bust darts. Delightfully prim crew neckline. White is cotton dobby. Blue gingham is a viscose acetate blend. Ivory mother-of-pearl buttons form an alluring line down the middle of the back. Imported.
