The Formfit Company was established in 1917 in Chicago as a maker of women’s “foundation garments” – mainly corsets and girdles. They also became known for other types of lingerie, such as bras and panties. In the early 1960s, Formfit merged with Rogers lingerie, to make Formfit-Rogers.
Formfit is still in operation, and is owned by Jockey International.
