Vintage Edwardian Ecru Lace Bust Supporter Bralette
Most undergarments of the early 20th century were of woven cotton, so to find such a lovely example from the Edwardian era in lace is even more fun. An early example of production manufacturing, circa 1910, this beautiful bust supporter might have been part of a bridal collection, and still has the original paper tag attached at the center back elastic, noting size 34. The rayon lace is a fantastic example of the use of cellulose fibers and synthetics, some of the early methods produced the softest, finest fabrics you won't find anywhere today. The floral geometric pattern gives off a beautiful embroidered sheen, the satin ribbon straps have just a hint of misty green color. A narrow elastic panel secures the center back with a row of hook and eye closures. Tagged as a size 34 the garment fits true to size, fitting any figure type measuring 34 inches or less, 32D as shown. Near mint new old stock.
