Please do NOT attempt to purchase, as this item has been SOLD. This item is viewable for reference purposes, and for a short time only.
Made in the early 1930s, this bra & panty was made from the finest silk-charmeuse fabric, and it has never yet been worn! Along with other “frillies” from this era, this beauty is now listed in both the Bras & Taps and Richard’s Collection departments. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our unique boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality possible. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care to restore items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
Offered for your most private moments, is this rare piece of delicate silk femininity! This bra & panty set has never been worn, and we found no stains and no holes anywhere in the fabric. The unique ‘NRA’ tag is in perfect condition – perhaps attesting to manufacture before 1936. “NRA” means simply the “National Recovery Act” under the Roosevelt administration in the early 1930s.
The panty features the most exquisite lace around the hems, and the same lace enhances the neckline of the bra. The panty is a very flared “step-in” style, with no buttons to fasten between the legs. The bra straps are adjustable for the most comfortable fit.
On our size 33 model, the band of the bra fits Gloria’s “underbust” with about an inch to spare. (Band closure is with two pairs of hooks and eyes… and the hooks can be moved.) The bra is tagged as a size 34, but it will also fit a size 36… albeit with a more “snug” fit. The waist of the panty is 30 inches around, and the left side closure is with three “mop” buttons.
The listed measurements are those of the bra and panty. For a good fit, please ensure that your own body measurements are less.
