This very rare 1940s mono-overwire bra by Lily of France is a sweet and sexy delight. This bra is made from one wire that circles around the breasts in a way that is similar to the overwire bras of the late 40s and 50s. The cups are made entirely of sheer white mesh fabric with a vertical stitch pattern which provides the iconic, softly darted silhouette of the era. Quilt pattern detail around the upper breast, and edged entirely in ruffled tulle. This bra has lush velvet lining around the wire to protect the skin and satin wrapping around the center between the cups. Excellent structure, support and shape, with stretchy satin sides and eye-hook closure in the back. This ultra revealing and very flirty relic is still completely wearable and a great addition to any lingerie collection.
CONDITION - Excellent: no holes or rips. There are two small spots on the velvet lining; one pinkish one on the top of the right cup lining and one age spot at the very bottom of the left cup. One light mark on one strap. See image.
