What Is The Best Foundation Garment To Wear Under Your Retro Clothes?

Ever wonder why that amazing retro dress doesn't quite fit you right? It is because the majority of women back in the 50's and 60's wore foundation garments.



Shapers, girdles, all in ones, waist cinchers and long-line bras sculpt bodies. They were worn underneath all those gorgeous retro wiggle, shift and swing dresses. Creating glamorous hourglass figures.
