    The earliest underwire bras were designed in the 1930s although they didn’t become really popular until the 1950s. Our Millionairess 1930s bra is inspired by a vintage soft cup bra. What Katie Did developed the design into an underwire bra, to combine a ‘30s look with modern support.Soft cup bras in the 1930s really didn’t have very much support at all so unless you’re an A or B cup they’re not supportive enough to wear regularly, so they added underwire.

    The Millionairess 1930s bra is made from a soft sage georgette with peach satin: both colours were used frequently in the 1930s. Art Deco was still very fashionable in the ‘30s and the geometric style can be seen in the satin triangle at the bottom of the cup.

  •  Fit tip: I found this bra to fit similarly size wise to the recent Latte Satine bra, I find the band firm but true and the cup a touch roomy, I personally preferred a cup down and my usual band size.

    The Millionairess 1930s bra is a new cup style for What Katie Did and as such it’s difficult to compare to our other bra cuts. The band will fit the same as our other underwire styles. The cup is a full cup style, made from non stretch fabric so you will need to adjust to fit. Just like with our bullet bras you will need to lean over to place your breasts in the cups and manoeuvre for the best fit. Adjusting your shoulder straps is also important for fit.

    There is a 2 row, 3 column hook and eye closure and the shoulder straps adjust at the back.

    This underwire bra is made from georgette and satin which are both 100% polyester. The bra cups are lined with lingerie denier which is 100% nylon, while the powermesh is 88% polyamide, 12% spandex.

    It’s ethically made in What Katie Did's main factory in India and the peach satin is the same used throughout their ranges so you can mix and match.
