ABOUT THE ART
Mary Phelps Jacob ~ Female Inventor of the modern brassiere ~ toile de Jouy for Womens Day
Mary Phelps Jacob was a 19 year old New York socialite who invented the first widely used 'modern' bra. After buying a new dress that her corsets looked awful under, she created her brassiere with handkerchiefs and ribbons ~ creating a "boyish" silhouette rather than a corsetted 'monobosom'.
