Belts to hold menstrual pads, part 1 ()

Women wore commercial belts at least from the latter part of the nineteenth century (the earliest ad the museum has is an American one dated ). Because self-adhesive pads became available only in the early 1970s, if women used pads, they had to wear belts, , "," (underpants with hooks or tabs or something else to hold the pad in place) - or invent some way of getting the pad to stay in place.

Companies sold probably hundreds of varieties of belts in the past hundred years, but the industry almost disappeared in the early 1970s with the advent of pads with adhesive ( and ).

See my drawing of a in the collection of the Valentine Richmond History Center in Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.

Belts,
Kay Cynova, a staff member of the Stuhr Museum, Grand Island, Nebraska, kindly contributed these scans of the next 3 advertisements from the 1897 (American) Sears and Roebuck catalog.
Below, Item 10936 "The Faultless Serviette": This is a disposable pad destined for burning unlike the common washable pads often made of diaper cloth, " linen." SOMEwhere I have a notice in a medical journal from the late 19th century describing a portable menstrual pad burner that women could take on trips.

The belts below are physical objects in the museum.

 

The box at left contains not only the belt (right) but a folder. See everything and mostly bigger. My guess is that this dates from before the mid-1920s, which I explain . ("Hoosier" means Indiana, a state in America; it possibly comes from an English dialect.) The donor of the belt generously gave MUM many other items, some below and some to be added later.

 

 

The typography suggests that this stems from the 1930s or 1940s. (American)

The seller, a medical supply dealer, advertised this as being from the 1940s. See the belt "unfurled," below (click for ). (American)
The box is crushed. The picture of the woman probably reflects the "" ad campaign, dating this belt between the late 1940s and the early 1970s. A writer says she got one in school in 1964. (American)
