Vintage late 1950s/early 1960s peach brocade open bottom full girdle. This has two layers of support.The bottom layer is a panel that goes across the abdomen with five vertical strips of boning and elastic on either side and across the front. The outer layer has boning up the back, built in cups, adjustable shoulder straps with metal hardware, and elastic insets. There are 4 garters, with metal hardware and stretchy straps. The front garters are attached to the bottom layer (back of the straps) and the front layer (front of the straps). The bottom layer is a solid peach fabric - it feels like cotton. The outer layer is a peach brocade with silky white flowers in the weave. This feels like cotton as well. The top of the bra cups are a silky peach jersey - maybe rayon?
Closures: Both layers close with metal hooks and eyes up the side. Bust: 8 inches across each cup and 29 inches around the body beneath the cups. The dress form is 35.5 around the chest and I added B-cup sized inserts to fill out the cups for the photos. Waist: 31 - 34 inches. Hips: 38 - 41 inches.Length: 30 inches including the garters. However the felt backing the hook and eye closures is discolored (not visible when worn) and the top closure of the outer girdle may be a little stretched out (see photo) though it looks fine when all the hooks and eyes are hooked together.
