Love pretty lingerie from the flapper era? Here is a splendid find from those roaring 20's. This early pink satin bra, called a bandette, was never worn, still with its label and store price tag of $1.00.
The bandette or bra is a satin finish fabric on the outside and a twill type cotton on the inside.. Attached to each side are three bands of elastic, stretching around the back to fasten. Two hook and eyes fasten the opening. No shoulder straps, nor were there any.
Made by Bein Jolie, USA. Size is 36, style # 8163.
Measurements: 32" completely around. Width center front is 6-3/4" wide tapering to 4-3/4" wide where the elastic attaches.
Condition: Very nice. Elastic does have some stretch when very gingerly tested. However, I would recommend not pulling.
