Foundations, LLC got its start in the roaring twenties -1928 to
be exact, then known as the Cortland Corset Company. Cortland Corset
took its name from the town it was founded in, Cortland, New York.
Today, Cortland NY is known as the heart of apple country and still
the home of this long-standing bra, girdle and corset business.
It was owned by the same family up until 1995 when it was sold to
its current owners. Their current owners have shown a strong commitment
to Cortland's long-standing customer base and have welcomed former
customers of the Exquisite Form Magic Lady shapewear and Subtract
girdle lines, having taken over the Subtract styles in the late
1990's and more recently the lightweight Magic Lady lines. Now a
part of the Venus of Cortland line, these are garments that have
stood the test of time and are known for their comfort and shaping
