One of the most inspiring things about the 1940s was 'Make Do and Mend'. It's well known that women turned curtains into dresses, parachute silk into French Knickers but did you know that women who worked in the aeroplane factories would use bits of windscreen plastic to make into jewelry?
Inspired by a set of lingerie made from an escape map on display at the Imperial War Museum in London, we've designed our own range.
Our Map Bra is a new cut for us, and gives a more natural shape than the 1950s bullet bra. The map is digitally printed on the same soft peach satin we use for our CC09 Tap Panties so you can mix and match with any of our other peach pieces to create your own look.
