This rare 1940s maternity corset is made of creamy light pink cotton, with strong laces and a very healthy elastic panel across the front. This corset girdle sits at the natural waist and is slighter higher in the back, with a total of 12 flexible stays throughout the front and sides for support. Gorgeous fan lacing with pulley straps to tighten laced through and secured at the sides. Double laced front sides for a perfect and comfortable fit intended for a growing belly, and eye hook closure going up the side of the abdomen gives you ease of wear. This corset can be as versatile as you imagine it to be and is incredibly sexy. A great find that is perfect for any vintage lingerie collector, as it is a style that is becoming harder to find!
CONDITION - Good: completely structurally sound and ready to wear with very healthy elastic. There is a reddish brown stain on one of the stays, approximately 1" long. A very small spot on the elastic waist band and a bit of rusty staining near hardware on garters. Garter clips are still strong. One of the straps has nips at the sides near its garter clip. Strap is not weakened due to this surprisingly, but could easily be replaced!
