Vassarette was founded as the Vassar-Swiss Underwear Company of Chicago in the 19th century. They were known then for manufacturing men's ribbed union suits and women's under garments. The parent company, Munsingwear, created the Vassarette label in 1951. Today, Vassarette is owned by Vanity Fair Brands and is still making a variety of styles of bras and panties.
Among the Vassarette bra offerings are lace push-up bras, microfiber wirefree bras, gel lift and underwire bras and extreme plunge styles. Customers praise the Vassarette fit and also love the modest price point. The brand's bras are known for a comfortable fit, with a back design that doesn't ride up and cups that hold breasts in place. Especially popular are their padded and cleavage-enhancing styles. Their Add a Size push up bra has graduated foam pads that enhance and elevate, while still keeping a natural shape. Vassarette also manufactures a bra with gel padding for natural shape and movement. Vassarette caters to a wide range of sizes--from their lace push-up bra, which starts at 34A to the full-figure cotton t-shirt bra, which goes up to size 44DD.
Vassarette panties are also very popular. Styles include high cut briefs, hipster panties and bikinis. They also make a shaping panty which is available in regular cut or high-cut. The sleek stretchy fabric provides light control that is just right for a smooth silhouette. Customers love how smooth and comfortable these panties are.
Over the years, Vassarette has carved a real niche in the lingerie market. They are committed to quality and style at extremely affordable prices. Vassarette bras don't skimp on feminine, pretty touches like lace trim, embroidery and satin bows. Their microfiber fabrics are exceptionally smooth and silky and, combined with seamless construction in some styles, are perfect under knits and other clingy tops.
Vassarette offers bra across almost all sizes, from their padded push-up bras to their full figure cotton underwire bras. They offer a really broad selection of bras for women who'd like to add a little oomph to their shape. Some of their bras add just a bit of enhancement while others, like the Double Delight underwire are heavily padded and shaped to dramatically enhance cleavage. Their extreme plunge bras have both graduated padding and a deep neckline, perfect under low-cut tops. For women who prefer cotton, their cotton-blend jersey bra is soft and breathable, while still adding cleavage enhancement.
Born from forthright traditional beginnings, Vassarette has remained an American brand mainstay for over a century-- from union suites to girdles to contemporary lingerie for today's woman. They wisely keep producing popular styles, while adding fresh new designs often. Some women tell us they've been buying the same Vassarette style for years and other say that once they try a Vassarette bra, it becomes their brand of choice. With a variety of versatile styles and with prices that are gentle on the budget, there are Vassarette bras and panties for all your lingerie needs.
