Cupid Intimates

Cupid Foundations begins operations as a sole proprietorship. World War II causes shortages of all sorts of materials, and quotas are created to ration what’s available to the private sector. When a company called Security Mills, a maker of knit fabrics, can’t use its entire nylon yarn quota, Cupid is founded to take advantage of it. It purchases the yarn, arranges for it to be knitted into fabric tubes by a contractor, and adds garters to the tubes. Ironically, a company that today is a leading manufacturer of seamed intimate apparel begins its life as a seller of seamless girdles.
