Blow Up to Be the Size You Want: The Inflatable Bra from the 1950s and 1960s

Before the invention of Wonderbra and Breast Augmentation, women used inflatable bras to enhance their breast size to boost their cleavage. The wearer could blow up to the size they desire.

“Trés Secret” inflatable bras were available in the early 1950s. A small plastic pouch was inside each cup, which could be inflated by the wearer with the accompanying mouthpiece. According to its makers, the bra could give any woman a boost to her bosom beauty, adding, “Do it yourself.”. Make the most of you. Blow up! To be the size you want.”
