Spirella Corset Company Exhibition – physical and online

The First Garden City Heritage Museum (Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire, UK) has an exhibition on the Spirella Corset Company until February 2013.

The museum has also put together an online exhibition with a few photos, information about the history of the company, and (super cool) video interviews from former employees about their experiences working there.

    My 94 year old mother was a Spirella Coresteire for many years during 1960s. Whilst clearing her house, we have come across many Spirella newletters of that era. Before we destoy them, we wondered if you would be interested in them.

    In the early 1900s my grandmother sold Spirella corsets. She had a sash with many pis for sales in it.
    I remember lacing my mother’s corsets.,
    It did give a very smooth line, like Spanx.
