Vintage 1930's Bra & Tap Pants Set | Rose Gold Silk with Taupe Alençon Lace | Carolyn, Paris, New York | Size XXS
This 1930s lingerie set is a decadent and irresistibly sexy style, made of slinky and soft rose gold silk charmeuse. Both the tap pants and the bralette feature intricate floral alencon lace in a beautiful shade of taupe.The bra has adjustable straps and is a classic unlined style with slightly darted triangle cups. Beautifully tailored to provide shape and support without the use of an underwire, with a low back and elastic band, closing with a metal hook closure. The tap panties sit high at the waist with an incredibly flattering and slinky fit over the lower abdomen and upper hip, with wide fluted leg openings giving a gorgeous silhouette and smooth shape. Two little pink buttons on the right side hip for closure, with one of which being completely hidden for a smooth effect. This impeccable set has never been worn and has very skillfully crafted of the highest quality and with the silkiest of silks. A great staple set of the era that is becoming harder and harder to find!
CONDITION - Excellent to mint: Never worn and without any holes, stains or rips. There is minimal stretch in the elastic but is still very strong and durable for wear. Some paint chipping on metal hardware and slight oxidation on straps due to metal sitting on the fabric without adjustment for over 80 years.
