MORGAN, Kate, English fashion designer. In 1903 she invented the seamless bust support, as a modified corset with a soft top. Then in 1909 Kate created a separate brassiere of the modern type that was marketed in America that year. However, brassieres did not catch on until used by Caresse CROSBY, in high society in America. In the USA the brassiere is associated with PHELPS (Crosby’s maiden name) rather than Morgan the actual inventor.
