Vintage 1950's All in One Girdle | Black Rayon Satin with Mesh Elastic & Embroidery | The Shape by Scandale | Size M
A sultry all i n one girdle by legendary French foundation brand Scandale. This sexy girdle is made of silky black rayon satin with ivory thread embroidery along the breast cups and down the sides of the satin in the front. Strapless style with embroidered lace and unlined wire cups, and power mesh side panels for a smooth silhouette. 2 strategically placed metal stays down the sides give sleek curves to the body, with one short metal stay in the center of the wired bust to boost and flatter the bosom. This girdle has gorgeous threading down the side seams and darting toward the derriere, showing skin beneath and giving light to the detail found in Scandale lingerie pieces. A daringly low V cut back with a wide satin panel to smooth and shape the bum. 6 trolley garters to hold up your stockings and ribbon covering the front two to decorate and shield your day wear. A beautiful and rare foundation piece perfect for any lingerie collection!
CONDITION - Very good: Very obviously pre-loved! All elastic is healthy and full of stretch, no holes, rips, or stains in the girdle. There are some areas where the reinforcement threads have unraveled but does not affect wear ability or strength of material. I believe there may have been straps that were either lost or removed, as there are two tabs in the back that look to be for strap hooks and there looks to be some hand sewing in the front where there were likely additional tabs. All garters in excellent condition, two garter straps show wear but are not weakened at all. There are some small holes in the flap where the eye-hook closure is hidden. More photos available, priced according to rarity and condition.
