The answer is letter C. Lana Turner was known as “The Sweater Girl” during World War II. It is a known fact that World War II or also known as the Second World War lasted from 1939 to 1945 and it involved many different countries which were divided into two alliances – the Allies and the Axis. During this time, the term Sweater girl also became popular in which it described women who wore tight sweaters over a cone-shaped bra to emphasize their bustline.

It was Lara Turner who started the trend when she appeared in the film called They Won’t Forget in 1937, hence she was the first person to be known as the Sweater Girl. Other actresses such as Jayne Mansfield and Jane Russell were also called the Sweater Girl.
