Hey, It’s Not A Lingerie Blog, It’s An Anatomical Supports Bra

Vintage Camp Anatomical Supports store display mannequin from the early 1940s, complete with her “anatomical supports” i.e. bra and corset girdle.



The seller says:

From S.H. Camp & Company, Jackson, Michigan, she is made of resin and is 24″ tall. The detail work on the garments are amazing – down to the last lace, grommet, hook, and strap. Camp made undergarments for posture improvement, post-surgical support, and orthopedic aid, all with a decidedly feminine touch. During WWII, Camp’s advertising campaign centered around providing the scientific means with which to help women work longer and with greater ease in war production.
