When Japan surrendered and the war was coming to an end,
U.S. servicemen were stationed at naval bases across East Asia and in their downtime,
they went looking for personal keepsakes from the war to take home.
As soldiers prepared to return to their girlfriends and wives on American soil, souvenir shopping became a priority.
The undergarments became a cult trend in the 1940s, a kind of sexy accessory souvenir.
The special undergarments were a memento of soldiers’ love,
as well as a playful way to make sure their girlfriends and wives stayed faithful while they were away.
“Don’t Touch” and “Off-limits” were commonly embroidered on the front of the lingerie alongside the name of the soldier’s naval base or fleet.
