1932 Joel Åkerlund started AB Corsettindustry. The company manufactured, among other things, garters, corsets, and bustiers. The brand Cid was used, which then turned into Abc Corsette and later on to become abecita in 1954. The little wonder was first sewn by two socks in crepenylon by designer Nina Wahlgren. The little wonder bra was a great success for the company. In 1981 Abecita was purchased by Swegmarks. They were very profitable and had a large share of volume customers selling at a good prices. Abecita had 700 retailers and was a more exclusive alternative to Swegmark.
