A spokesperson from John Lewis chalks up the revival of 1950s and 1980s-style protruding undergarments to the tough economy:
"Throughout the last century the trend for feminine pointy shaped bras experienced a renaissance following times of a toughened economy, marking a return of unabashed femininity as women seek to have more fun with fashion as a form of escapism," quotes the source.
With pointy bras back in the mix, does this mean that a curvier figure is also in style? Fingers crossed!
However, not everyone is for a fuller physique. Mark Fast's use of "normal-sized" models on the runway caused drama with the show's stylist and casting director.
