Original caption: Confident that the female form divine will "curve" again in 1955, Madeline Charmis, Parisian designer of foundation garments is preparing for the occasion. Here are two of her creations. At left: A frou foundation cut in the "apron" style. The one piece garment is designed to be worn under cocktail or evening dress. It is of elastic material trimmed with an apron frill at the edge. The low cut top has a bird of black lace as fancy trim. At right: A foundation called "black mink," designed for the sports girl. The girdle, shaped like bull fighter breeches, is made to hug the figure under ski pants or riding breeches. It is of elastic black lace and is said to be warm and comfortable.
