Black lace bra from 1965. Not strictly a "bullet bra," as the seaming isn't in concentric circles. Instead, three-panel construction creates that retro, sweater-girl silhouette. Non-stretch lace cups. Side boning, no underwires. Straps have stretch and are adjustable at front (the only sensible place, if you ask us) with pretty little flip-up metal bows. Band also has stretch and has three rows of double hooks. From the Gilmore estate. Shown with 50s Sears Kerry-Teen slip, available here.
