Playtex is an American brand name for undergarments, baby products, gloves, feminine products and sunscreen. Abram Nathaniel Spanel founded the International Latex Corporation, in Rochester, New York in 1932 to produce latex products, such as bathing caps, swimwear and baby pants. The Playtex brand began in 1947, when International Latex Corporation created a division named Playtex to produce and sell latex products.
Playtex was the first to advertise undergarments on national television in 1955 and the first to show a woman wearing only a bra from the waist-up in a commercial in 1977.
Corporate History: Playtex was acquired by Esmark in 1975, and then by Beatrice Foods in 1985. A year later it was acquired for $1.25 billion and its cosmetics brands were sold to Revlon. In 1988, Playtex split into two companies, Playtex Apparel Inc. and Playtex Products LLC. Playtex Apparel was sold to Sara Lee in 1991, and to HanesBrands in 2007.
Playtex-branded apparel products sold by Hanesbrands include bras, panties and shapewear. In addition to panties and shapewear, Playtex bra brands include:
The company has been producing and marketing the Cross Your Heart bra since 1954 under the slogan that it "lifts and separates," a phrase that is now well known in popular culture. The Eighteen Hour bra has been marketed on the premise of comfort since the 1970s.
