We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been either gently or moderately worn by a previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
As indicated by the label, this panty was made in France. Silks made in France in the 20s and 30s have an extremely fine texture… far better than silks made after WW-2. This panty was made from the crepe-de-chine “weave” of silk, and it has such a luxurious feel against the skin. The scalloped lace at the hem, and at the side-slits, is 2-3/4 inches deep.
There is a size tag indicating a “22”, but the actual waist stretch is from 26 to 42 inches. There is plenty of “snap” in the encased waist elastic, which can be replaced if desired.
This is a step-in style panty, which at 21 inches, is somewhat longer than most tap panties.
We rarely see these old panties in such beautiful condition, but this is one of the best! As worn by our 23-1/2” waist-size model, ‘Gloria’, we clothes-pinned the panty on the side away from the camera.
This panty is destined to be worn by a Star… the Star of her own Boudoir Life!
