A little bit of History about Gossard Lingerie
Established in 1905 by Henry Williamson Gossard in Chicago, Gossard first began producing corsets and other women's garments after spotting actress Sarah Bernhardt transform her figure in a specially designed corset. Their first revolutionary idea was to move the laces of a corset from the back to the front for easier access and more comfort.
In 1920 the Gossard brand moved to the fashion capital London to open a central UK office and soon became a British company instead of an American Corporation.
In 1940, during the Second World War, Gossard's production was turned over to assist the war effort and was producing everything from brassieres, sails, convoy balloons, lifebelts and parachutes.
In the 1950's, Gossard launched the Perma-Lift range of bras and girdles which featured a 'magic insert' made from soft, cool lightweight fabric in each cup to provide permanent uplift.
By the 1960's, Gossard diversified and starting producing fashionable bras and revolutionised the lingerie industry with the launch of the soon-to-be famous Wonderbra.
From the 1970's,it was noted that women's figure were starting to change and becoming taller and fuller in the bust area. This meant the demand for larger cup sizes was increasing, so Gossard started developed ranges up to a DD cup with the Superbra became the bestselling larger cup bra.
From then on, Gossard has used it expertise and innovation to be at the forefront of the lingerie industry and continues to create supportive cleavage-enhancing lingerie that are both glamorous and comfortable.
