M&S lingerie has a rich heritage of design, style, quality and innovation. Would you believe that we launched our very first bra in 1926? To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year, we delved into our unique M&S Archives to take inspiration from the lingerie styles which were popular in our own ranges 60 years ago.
Traffic quite literally came to a standstill on London’s OxfordÂ Street when we launchedÂ the Jubilee, 1950s-inspired Limited collection. 5 gorgeous models (above) looked absolutely stunning in our archive-inspired collection and caused quite a stir. SeeÂ the pictures at dailymail.co.uk.
In the early 1950s, bras came inÂ three sizes; small, medium and large. Today we have over 40 sizes in many of our bra ranges, and our cup sizes range from an AA cup through to a K cup! Now that’s what I would call ‘supporting the nation’!
Iconic 1950s lingerie styles included sweater girl conical bras, flirty french knickers, slinky teddies, shaping corselettes and suspender girdles. These 1950s, vintage styles inspired our talented designers to create our unique, sassy, archive-inspired, Limited Collection lingerie, sleepwear and sexy shaping underpinnings… way too gorgeous to stay under wraps for too long.
M&S Lingerie, in my opinion, is asÂ cutting edge and on-trend today as our original styles were in 1952. I hope you love these divine lingerie looks as much as I do.
