The Correct Foundation Garments for 1950s Dresses

If you've ever purchased a vintage dress and wondered why it doesn't fit correctly, maybe you're not wearing the proper foundation garments. Prior to the late 1960's, clothing was styled and cut with the understanding that women would be wearing girdles and shapers underneath.

This week on the Couture Allure Blog, I've been doing a series with photos from a 1958 fashion magazine about the correct foundation garments to wear with different styles that were popular at the time. Check it out!
