When making a movie set in 1960s America, it makes sense to include some period-specific sexism — particularly when it’s a movie that focuses on certain groups being oppressed by the patriarchy. X-Men is an ideal opportunity to slip in a couple of casual references to everyday sexism and racism, to highlight their similarities with anti-mutant xenophobia. Instead, you get things like Moira McTaggert infiltrating the Hellfire Club by taking off all her clothes to reveal a convenient set of perfect lingerie (including garter belt!) that allows her to pretend to be a hooker. While there are probably some people who are ready to go undercover at the Playboy Mansion at the drop of a hat (or skirt), that list begins and ends with Lady Gaga and people on their way to a hot date. Not a businesslike 1960s CIA agent on a stakeout with a male colleague. — The costumes of X-Men: First Class, Part 1: Womenswear.

The way “1960s” costumes seem to work in this movie is that the menswear is relatively accurate, because for men, 1960s style is all about harking back to an era were Men Were Men. Back in those days, Don Draper and James Bond could order sixteen martinis and a new pocket square from room service, and not have anyone bat an eyelash. However, 1960s womenswear just doesn’t have the same connotations, and most of the womenswear in XMFC was altered to make it look more appealing to modern standards of beauty. Most noticeably, the bra shapes. It’s absolutely plausible to include a scene where a bunch of Playboy Bunny types are entertaining gross old dudes in a members-only club, but the girls would all be wearing bullet bras, would have ~trendy ’60s hairstyles (WHERE WERE THE BEEHIVES??), and would probably be about 15 lbs heavier than the modern-day models they hired as extras in that scene.

The way I see it, the filmmakers went out of their way to create a “best of both worlds” scenario: 1960s sexism allowing them to include a scene where a whole bunch of women strip down to their underwear for male entertainment, but 21st century standards of beauty so the (male) audience can appreciate it on the same level. — The costumes of X-Men: First Class, Part 1: Womenswear.

A middle-aged woman in 1952 would have been a young adult during the Great Depression and lived with rationing for over a decade of her life, which was definitely a contributing factor towards dress and waist sizes being dramatically smaller then than they are today. Add to that the fact that people were aiming for different body-shapes than we do, and it’s surprisingly difficult for modern-day actresses to successfully wear fashions from 50+ years ago. Some uncomfortable stockings and a pointy bullet-bra not only mean that the clothes look and fit better, but they help the actors stand and walk correctly as well. — The Bletchley Circle, Part 2: Costume Design.

Bras are something we think of as being relatively modern, but archaeologists have discovered that women in 15th and 16th century Austria were definitely wearing something that looks suspiciously like the bras we see today. From Hello, Tailor: The Creature from the Black Lagoon, literary bathing costumes, 2500-year-old tattoos, and more.
