If you love 1930s vintage fashions as much as I do, you will be just as excited to see this original 1934 fall style and fashion book by Lane Bryant. A leader in womens larger size clothing even in the 1930s. The colors of the pages in the catalog are as fresh as they were years ago.
Fabulous vintage early 1934 and 1935 fall and winter vintage fashions are shown for the larger lady which shows that plus size clothing even in the 30s was stylish and up to date with what was happening in the fashion world.
So yes, larger sizes were available and not at all dowdy or old lady looking.
I have a large inventory of plus and larger sized clothing from the 1930s through the 60s to add to Bettes Bargains Vintage clothing shop in the near future.
Below are a few photos from the book and some items from my shop that mirror these styles.
