No-bend rest chairs

Found over at Tea with the Vintage Baroness... Our favourite Land Girl explains:

"One way on-screen starlets were able to dodge the issue of brassieres altogether was through the practise of costumers sewing the actresses into their dresses. I watched a Jean Harlow documentary that mentioned Harlow was sewn into many of her slinky numbers, as well. If the frocks were too fitted to allow the girls to sit down, I'll bet they were too fitted for the "girls" to droop down, too. (Insert Marx Brothers eyebrow raising and lowering/cigar flicking here) ... "

Love it!

They can't sit down, so they just get propped against the wall... nice.
