BULLET BRA: THE INDISPENSABLE UNDERWEAR FOR THE SWEATER GIRL IN THE 1940S AND 1950S

947 ratings | 262553 views
Bullet Bra: The Indispensable Underwear for the Sweater Girl in the 1940s and 1950s: Bullet Bra is a full-support bra with cups in the shape of a paraboloid with its axis perpendicular to the breast. The bullet bra usually features concentric circles or spirals of decorative stitching centred on the nipples. Invented in the late-1940s, they became popular in the 1950s, and worn by the Sweater Girl, a busty and wholesome "girl next door" whose tight-fitting outergarments accentuated her artificially enhanced curves. These photos show young women, mostly Hollywood actresses, who worn bullet bras from between 1940s and 1950s. Labels: 1940s, 1950s, beauty, fashion, girls, portraits, women

They always look silly and totally unnatural even more so on girls with a large bust. They also remind me of a pair of Zeppelins in a race.

Man I couldn't stand wearing a bullet bra that would be miserable and agervating I could just imagine what those women went through back then I would have to say that was probably pretty rough wearing that stinky bullet bra how uncomfortable that was

I agree some of those looked outrageously pointed but the majority were a bit rounded. Unlike what the fashion industry has forced women to wear now days. Those molded cup things smash the breast so they look deformed. They look sort of like a flat woman cut a melon in half and stuffed the two halves in her bra. MELONS! The sensible bullet bras give the breast a nice pear shape. Sort of like what women look like at 16-20 when they were still firm and erect. Pear shaped.

Liked the video, but the music is too sad. This is a celebration, not the closing of another Saturday Night Live! Long live women and bullet bras!!!!

BOOBS SAYS. I WANT A BULLET BRA. NICE TIT POINTS OUT. NICE UP LIFT😚😚

The Bullet Bra looks good on a woman with large Breasts. If she has small breasts all you see are these two sharp pointy things that look like two pencils under her blouse. Give me a girl with a C or D cup and the bullet bra will give you an erection so intense it will rip the skin off your Penis.

Some of those were really awful. The ones that look as sharp as spear points. blech, never did like that look but the support bras of the 50s and 60s did enhance the bust line. I do not like the modern bras, they make the breast look smashed and deformed all for the sake of squishing up to cleavage. That is what looks fake to me. Slightly pear shaped is natural, anything else is deformed.

Fully turned on by fully clothed women. I say bring those bra's back, ladies.

These crazy brassiere designs were ok for that time, I guess. BUT... the wonderful thing is that the bullet bras led the Europeans to develop better designs later on, like the three-section bra design which still is the best form fitting bra we have today, fyi.

The comment was why did Elizabeth Taylor looks of studying with some of these other actresses it didn't really look great in those tight bro well one reason was Elizabeth Taylor face was studying and she could wear anything and should still be stunning stunning

So this is where Lady Gaga got the idea when Gaga started to really grab the media and new fan's attention when she started out . If memory serves me didn't Lady Gaga have fireworks, sparklers or streamers pop out of her bullet bra ?

Why didn't they just shove traffic cones down their fronts!
pcbondart (10 months ago)
where do you think they got the idea for traffic cones?
Michael Towler (1 year ago)
I never thought they looked any good, they looked like hard nose cones and not feminine at all just as big shoulder pads looked weird on most Men, not like later Bras which let natural shape and motion show .Then again I was only ten in 1953 so maybe I wasn't looking at them with any interest :))
