Marilyn Monroe’s bra and stockings up for auction

Author: By Lauren Turner, Press Association

The bra, believed to have been worn by Monroe in the late 1950s.

It has a double-cup structure and two sets of straps, but apparently would
have been almost impossible to see under clothing.

Auctioneer Richard Davie of Nottingham-based International Autograph Auctions,
said the double cup made the cleavage look more ‘ample than it actually was’.

“There is such an interesting story to it, but obviously the main attraction
is that it was owned by Marilyn Monroe.

“She is such a household name, and still has a lot of fans around the world.

“To own something like a bra from such a sex symbol is quite an exciting thing
for any Marilyn Monroe enthusiast.”

The bra is expected to reach £2,000 when it is auctioned at the Radisson
Edwardian Hotel, Heathrow, on Saturday.

The size 9M Christian Dior stockings, still with their original paper
wrapping, will attract bids of up to £1,500, Mr Davie believes.
