Marilyn Monroe was a stunning actress and one of the most beautiful and appealing women the world has ever known.

Her striking figure made men stop thinking and women envy her.

Her contemporaries couldn’t understand why she was so attractive and what could keep her in such a perfect shape.

Now we seem to know the answer.

Marilyn Monroe once sang that “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend, but, as it turns out, her best friend was actually closer to her heart, it was her bra.

The bra that belonged to the Hollywood siren in the 1950s went to auction a few days ago and was sold for $5200.

The structure of the bra clearly shows that Marilyn wasn’t satisfied with what mother nature gave her and used lots of techniques to look better.

Monroe’s bra was obviously an early form of a Wonderbra and was intended to make the star’s bust look bigger.

The bra has extra straps for better lift – helping it act almost like a suspension bridge – and an extra pair of outer cups to add up a size to the 36D Monroe bust. Besides, the bra had steel underwire to provide a better cleavage.

Katie Halford, of lingerie firm What Katie Did in London, said the bra would have covered only the underside of the actress’s breasts, thus giving the impression that she was not wearing a bra at all.

Auctioneer Richard Davie at Radisson Edwardian Hotel said:

The bra looks very complicated at first glance and it actually has four cups inside it – sort of like an early Wonderbra.

There’s an inner cup which it almost hidden, which would support her chest as normal.

But then there’s an another larger cup about an inch further out, to give the impression she had a bigger chest.’

The bra was not the only piece to be auctioned. A pair of nude, sheer, Christian Dior silk stockings, in size 9M, and marked ‘Diorella’ were also on the list.

They came wrapped in tissue paper marked ‘Christian Dior – Paris – New York’.
