Edwina Ehrman


Last quote by Edwina Ehrman

One of the major breakthroughs for underwear, and it also affected corsetry, was the development of a long elastic thread called Lastex in 1931, and that meant you could reduce the number of whalebones in a girdle, or a corset, and that was a major breakthrough. The other huge breakthrough was with Lycra, available to the public from 1959.feedback
