This full slip has, I think, been hand made. It has adjustable spaghetti straps, a fitted bust, and is trimmed with deep black lace at the neck and hem. It is in good vintage condition, although it has suffered a little from storage; but the easiest way to get the creases to drop out will be to hang it up in your bathroom for a day or two - steam works wonders, even without an iron!
It can be worn as it was intended, as underwear, or on its own, over jeans or leggings. It's still a sexy piece of clothing - and far more complex in shape than you'd expect - the body is in six pieces.
This makes it difficult to measure. For guidance, our model is a size 10. Approximate length from back of bodice to hem is 33 inches/84 cms; bust 31 inches/78.5 cms plus shaping, which adds a couple of inches; waist 29 inches/73.5 cms.
