Bullet bra fashion

In 1940s and 1950s the most popular sexy lingery was a bullet bra. It`s the iconic pointy cone bra  you could see on Hollywood stars of that time. In 1990s Madonna also wore it during her Blond Ambition Tour, thought it didin`t become a trend. Bullet bras first showed up in the 1940s, and were explicitly meant to accentuate a woman’s figure. They were made famous by the “Sweater girls” (fashion of wearing tight sweaters over a cone or bullet-shaped bra) reprezented by midcentury movie stars like Lana Turner, Jayne Mansfield, and Jane Russell.
