Triumph is a legacy brand that started in the 1860s in the German countryside. In a barn in the Swabian countryside, six seamstresses fashioned whalebone corsets with fine silks ñ a humble start to a proud tradition. Four years later, their number increased to 150. Johann Gottfried Speisser and his friend Michael Braun named their company after L'Arc de Triomphe, the French architectural masterpiece. The turn of the century brought a new emphasis on the health benefits of brassieres, while World War I brought the need for foundations that were functional as well as beautiful. Front closure bras emerged, and strapless corsets became popular. Fewer seams were used, to make bras more affordable for the average woman. In the 1950s, stretch straps were introduced. The 1960s was the era of sexual revolution, and the bra became an object of contempt for feminists - yet despite the firestorm, it continued to evolve to meet needs for comfort and support. The 1970s introduced stretch Lycra spandex, an absolute necessity in modern lingerie. The 1980s ushered in the era of the power suit and Triumph's first sports bra. Today, the great-great grandchildren of the founders still run the company, with even more technological advances to come. The famous super model Helena Christensen designs for Triumph, bringing her catwalk-inspired ingenuity to women everywhere.
