Vtg 1915s EDWARDIAN Downton OPEN Bottom CORSET Girdle 4 Metal GARTERS Ruched 36D
Other than needing to be cleaned, I don't see a thing wrong with this Edwardian era, long line, open bottom, corset/bra/garter. This is boned in front and back and has hook and eye fasteners on the left side. There's more stretch in the front garters than the back ones, but that's to be expected, and the back's will work just fine for a while, IMO. All the metal garters look original and they're in good condition. There are no perspiration stains and the stains that show in the flash of my camera aren't nearly as bad in person. This has plenty of strong elastic in the vertical panels. And then there's ruching above the elasticized panel on each side/front. Three elastic panels in front, counting the inverted "v" in the center. There's two stays front/center. There's another strong elasticized panel on each side in back, another one top/center, and four stays. I lined up a 36B bra over one cup on this corset and it's quite a bit smaller. The tan one is offset to the right and bottom. I measured from one side seam to the other across the back and you can see that in the 11th pic. I think this is a 36C or D, but please look at the 11th and 12th pictures and judge for yourself.
I measured the length while this was still on the mannequin, and it's 28 from the top of the shoulder to the hem. The mannequin is about a size 8. The bottom opening is 40 total.
