Vintage Lingerie Labels

Vintage Lingerie by Sweet Cherry Vintage Lingerie: Vintage Lingerie Labels:

The following are still in production to this day:
Bali -1930's
Barbizon -1920's
Hollywood Vassarette (Munsingwear) - 1940's to still in production just under the name Vassarette
Frederick's of Hollywood - 1930's or 40's
Gilead -1950's
Komar - 1950's
Lily of France - late 1800's
Olga - 1948 still in production (although her nightgowns went out of production in the late 80's to early 90's). Rule of thumb, gowns with the 5 digit style numbers are 80's gowns. 4 Digit style numbers are earlier (usually 1970's), and Olga NEVER created nightgowns prior the mid/late 1960's. All her items were foundations/panty-slips prior to that.
Miss Elaine - 1920's
Rago: unknown
Shadowline - 1940's
Val Mode - Late 1930's
Vanity Fair - 1899
Victoria's Secret (started as a mail order catalog) in the 1970's
Warner - 1930's (interesting side note, Warner's invented the A,B,C,D Bra Cup sizing)
Wondermaid - 1930's or 40's
