Magic Underwear

This is what they mean, right?

From the Relief Society Magazine, 1952–





  1. I believe “magic underwear” is supposed to protect you from harm not inflict it. (btw, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a zippered girdle before. I thought these things were always pull-ons. The zipper makes it all worse somehow.)

  2. Margot Manners? Is that code for the Lingerie Department?

    Nope. (Thanks, Google.) That seemed to be a position at ZCMI, filled primarily by a woman named Roxey Romney Davis Holbrook.

  3. Do they have one for pregnancies? Preferably that works to at least support from underneath? I would go for the zipper then!

  4. A flatter tummy during pregnancy? Now that really WOULD have been magic!
