pointy breasts

The bullet bra.

In the middle 1940s Frederic Mellinger opened a shop called "Frederick's of Hollywood" on Hollywood Boulevard: a legend was born, one that would change lingerie forever. Mellinger introduced black lingerie into the United States, and created the world's first push-up bra. Hollywood stars started to buy in Frederic's shop, but "normal" women would shop there as well.

He spread the idea that lingerie served the purpose of making a woman feel right in her body: a very modern idea indeed. A couple of years later Maidenform, riding the wave, created the first pointy bra, it was called the Chansonette bra. This style was destined to adorn every actress, pin up and woman of the 50s and determine that "aggressive" look in their busts. The cone shape was given by the spiral stitching, and it made the classic 40s shapes even more exaggerated.

This has surely something to do with the WW II and its restrictions about nylon and fabrics. The pointy bra was ready to become famous at least a decade earlier if it wasn't for war, but certainly war did help the quick and overwhelming response it had in the 50s.

Cones, cornettos they are hard to find but they are known as a 1950s 'Stitched Cup Bullet Bra' and are beautiful constructions for the eye to behold.

If modern women want empowering they should buy them.

Take that boys...

from another thread, whatever happened to pointy breasts?

It's from an era of more rigid underwear, brassieres, girdles, corsets, etc

Been waiting 500 years. How much longer must a man wait to pose?

Bit of a stab a few years back ...

He just wanted to bonk Jane Russell.

Why did Jane Russell? Because Max Factor.
