I dreamed I was....Blogging in my Maidenform Bra

"The now famous "I Dreamed" campaign was launched in 1949 and ran for 20 years, making it one of the longest running campaigns in the history of advertising. The ads feature models in everyday or fantastic situations, elaborately costumed but wearing only a Maidenform bra above the waist. The ads generated both controversy and praise." (from History Wired)

I love a good bra, but then, who doesn't?  It is one of the most important things a woman might wear, it can make or break an outfit.  Without a "good" bra, your clothing will not fit right.

To get the best fit, one needs to get measured and "fitted" for cup size, etc.  The best way to do this is to go to one of the old fashioned shops like The Maddox Shop in Dallas.  The Maddox shop has been around forEVER...since the 1930s.  This is THE place all us girls went to get the proper foundations for formals for Prom and of course Bridal Wear.  I remember the first time I went in there, an elderly lady followed me into the dressing room...I about DIED.  I had no idea what this lady was doing coming in the little curtained room with me...with a measuring tape around her neck.  I kept telling her I could handle it on my own...but she KNEW what she was doing...I did not.  That is part of the service of a place like this.  They make sure you are measured so the bra is fitted TO YOU.  Trust me, for the best possible LOOK, get the proper will not regret it.  Oh...a little will pay slightly (ok alot more than slightly) more than the 1.59 advertised in this Maidenform Ad.

Back to the Maidenform Ads....

Here's to finding the perfect bra....

  1. Those were good bras. You can't find ones today that support like that. I know, I've looked.
