This 1930s all in one corset girdle by Smart-Form is perfect for both the vintage lingerie wearer and collector. Never worn with its original packaging, made of rich peach cotton and rayon with a lovely damask pattern. A perfect mash-backed blush pink lace bust with light darting to provide the classic 30s silhouette. Detachable elastic straps for ease of wear. This sexy corselette has boning in all the right places, with a fully boned inner flap that laces on the sides for sturdy support over the abdominal and hip areas. Separated at the waist and connecting with a hook at the center, with a fully enclosed back for a sleek look. This very rare and heavily crafted foundation piece has 4 elastic garters with ribbon over the clasps to protect your day wear from the hardware. Absolutely perfect for wear or collecting!
