This gorgeous thing is from the 1947:s collection "Le Gant - Merry Widow" of Warner's. 
Warner's has made beautiful underwear since 1874 and has made a huge mark on the lingerie fashion since (for example they were the ones who launched the "alphabet bras", the ones we know today by A, B, C, D cups, you know). I guess that's what a company need to do to survive all the twists and turns of two three centuries. 

I found the corset in Hollywood, at the sunday market of Melrose. If there is anywhere that you can't miss when you are in LA, it is this sunday market! It blew my mind! They had lovely clothes - and actually a lot from the 1920:s, 1930:s that I find is hard to find in Sweden. They also had beautiful mirrors, furniture and mannequins. This corset was bought for like 25 dollars, maybe less. So if you are interested in second hand and vintage, don't miss it! You can see some pictures down below, so you see what I mean. And if you want to know more about lingerie from the past, the evolution of the corset and Warner's history - take a peek here. It can say a lot of women's history too.
