The Spandex content at 24% is very, very high - especially for this time period. BACK: The back is actually in 2 parts : A The main back panel that goes all the way to the bottom of the girdle - it has a U shaped "dip" that cannot be seen from the outside because of the 2nd part: B an overlay back panel that had a V shaped inset panel of the. 76% nylon & 24% Spandex with stays on either side.BONING/STAYS: 2 stays in front - one on either side of the zipper starting just under the bra cups & descending about 1/2 way down the front for tummy control. There are stays where the side firming panels meet the back and 2 more stays in the "overlay" back panel on either side if the elastic "V" panel. GARTERS: There are SIX garters - rubber with metal clips and 2 of those garters in the back are longer - my guess would be to compensate for the tension on the stockings to garters when sitting down. CONDITION: This girdle does not appear to have ever been worn - and if so, very lightly. It has not been laundered it and will leave it to the new owner to clean as they see fit.
