Vintage Playtex

New the Playtex 152 cross your heart bra
is not sold in the US. Which is now owned
by Hanes. But is available over the pond at
playtex.uk, which is also hanes, but marketed
and sold by Gossard?!?!? Now I'm cornfused.

Not cheap as it was $39.00 bucks with shipping.

I always loved this bra but never  had
a chance to get it on SD until now!

Sorry private collection, but this is more or
less a review. Now I know this is NEW made
with modern materials, so their will be
 inconsistencies if attempting to compare 
with "true" vintage. 

Pulled out of box and bag. So far nice. Stretchy
and lace patterns match vintage. But when fitting
and adjusting on model, one of the cheap ass
fucking plastic strap adjusters broke! Now the bra
strap is constructed of 1 inch wide stretchy material.
The middle crossbar was what broke.


This is just the worst case of make it as cheaply
 as possible and fuck the consumer. I can't tell you 
how much this pissed me off as fixing was not
a simple operation. So buggered it to make it
through shoot, which surprisingly held up well.

But if you look at several others makers, even 
the heavy duties, they have all gone to plastic
or nylon  varieties that eventually break. And
look you straight in the eye and want to charge
you $60 plus!!

This kind of makes me remember the American
car companies bitching about the cost of $3.89
for reinforcing a cars windshield pillar to survive
a rollover. I know major difference but what if
your waitress in a snug company provided uniform
had her strap break while serving you or your family?
I know once again would grab my camera or would
provide more than adequate professional assistance.

Metal hardware would prolly cost maybe 
15 cents  more, just pathetic, shame on you 
Playtex, Hanes and Gossard or whomever you are!
