Here we go again!! If you want that famous 'pin-up' then this is the bra for you!! Made of a lovely creamy, satin-like fabric throughout the entire body!! The cups are of course circle stitched with the main seam being quite firm to hold its shape. The inside of the cups has a very soft flannel type fabric so it's soft against your skin. There are 2 vee-shaped power-netting panels at the bottom edge for a great fit. It closes at center back with a slip hook and 3/4cm wide elastic with 6 spaces for sizing. The straps are satin-like ribbon and non-adjustable. We found this beauty in France - it has no label but one small tag reads 85. This bra is definitely suited for any collection but would be fabulous for everyday wear as well. Due to being in storage for many years this there is a slight 'line' on each side where the fabric has discolored and you will find the tiniest pin-hole marks on either side and center front no doubt from where a tag had been stapled on. (please click here to see the detailed picture). These 'flaws' are so minor that then certainly don't take away from the beauty of this garment. The condition is new and unworn! The 'originals' are so much nicer than the faux styles you purchase today - plus it's a piece of fashion history!   Don't miss out on this one!! Circa 1950's.
