Antique 1920's Garter Brassiere | Pale Powder Pink Cotton Damask | Size 32 Bust, XS | Venus Brassiere Co.
This antique 1920s garter brassiere is a very rare lingerie piece by Venus Brassiere Co.. Made of pale powder pink cotton with a diamond damask pattern. Chevron ribbon straps and a smooth, uncupped bust give the classic 20s silhouette. This merrywidow style falls to cover the upper hip with elastic inserts at the sides for comfort which was a rather inventive technique at the time. 4 garter straps fall to about the mid-thigh to hold up your stockings, with elaborately embossed metal clasps similar to those of the previous Edwardian era. This lovely brassiere closes in the back with hidden eye-hooks down the spine, with 2 flexible bones to help narrow the upper back. A very special lingerie piece that is sweetly feminine while still being incredibly sexy.
Excellent: Lovingly preserved with minimal wear. No holes or rips. All metal in exceptional condition without rust. Garter sliders in excellent condition. One mark on the right strap. Elastic inserts have lost most of their stretch but are still supportive.
