Merry Widow (1951) A (usually) non-lacing corset made by Warner's and named after Lehar's operetta. It had a half-cup bust support and long stocking suspenders. The term has come to be used to denote most any corset-like strapless long-line brassiere.

Metal “Mannequin” Mould (Metal Maiden) Dress stand of copper. Corsets when finished were starched and fitted on to these moulds and steamed from the inside to dry out "molded' to the mannequin's shape.

Modesty (Modesty-piece, Modesty Lace) An extra strip of material attached to the top or bottom of a corset with drawstring to adhere to contour of wearer; many times made of gallon lace.

Viuda feliz (1951) Un corsé hecho por Warner y denominado tras la opereta de Lehar. Tenía la copa sólo por la mitad como soporte al busto y ligas largas para las medias. El término se ha utilizado para denominar a la mayoría de los corsés –así como sujetadores sin tirantes y un poco largos.

Molde de metal “Maniquí” (Dama de metal) Soporte de cobre. Los corsés cuando estaban acabados eran almidonados, se ponían en estos maniquíes y se planchaban al vapor desde dentro moldeando la forma del maniquí (hoy día se utiliza una máquina llamada Toper).

Modestia (trozo de cordón) una tira adicional del mismo material unida a la parte superior del corsé a la inferior para añadir contorno al portador y aumentar su comodidad. A menudo se realizaba con cinta de galón.

It should be noted that designer swimwear has been specifically designed not only to make women look feminine, sophisticated, and beautiful, but also to make them feel comfortable about themselves and their body while basking under the sun.
Thanks for sharing!
