The 1950s had a lot of really top notch historical flicks that are worth watching, but of all the modernisms from that decade that crept into the costuming, bullet bras have to be one of the most distracting. No shape defines this era as strongly as the bullet bra, and like many film productions to this day, wardrobe teams were under immense pressure to preserve as much of the fashionable 1950s shape as they could get away with and still call it historical.
Do you have any notably out of place bullet bras in historical flicks? Share them with us in the comments!
