This 1940s girdle by Formfit is not rare just for its detail, but it also has never been worn and retains its original box. Absolutely gorgeous, made of rich bubblegum pink rayon with cotton blend material with stretchy rubber elastic side panels to smooth and create curves. A darling embroidered tulip across the front adds a sweet feminine touch. Sitting very high at the waist with 3 wide metal stays over the abdomen to flatten and support the tummy. A wide elastic band at the back of the waist gives a seamless look, with a smooth back panel without boning for flattering the derriere. This girdle has an open skirt with 4 trolley style garters to hold up your stockings. Side eye-hook closure at the right side of the waist hidden below the outer zipper, with lush pink velvet backing to protect the skin from irritation.
This girdle has been stored in its original box which features beautiful graphics. An excellent choice for any vintage lingerie enthusiast!
CONDITION - Very-good/excellent: This girdle has never been worn and structurally is near mint condition. Unfortunately I had to remove the price tag as the staples had rusted and began to stain the girdle (see upper waist). As a result there is one pinhole where one of the staples had rusted the most. There is a little rusting on 2 garter clasps and a couple of tiny rust spots, one on the right side of the waist and one on the lower part of the seat on the back.
