This size 34C black lace 1950s basque or strapless bra (sometimes also called a Merry Widow) has a built-in panty and garter straps, as well as boning for shaping, from bust to upper hips. The black nylon lace is lined with white nylon backing, and combined with panels of black stretch mesh. The legs of the panty are elasticized, and the underwire bra is lightly padded, and decorated with scalloped, crystal-pleated nylon trim at the top of the cups. The basque fastens with a front metal zipper, as well as metal hooks and eyes, and snaps at the center of the crotch panel. The garter straps and clips appear brand new, and may be replacements for the originals. In very good condition, the only issue with this gorgeous piece of 1950s shapewear is that the padding in the lower half of the bra cups has become stiff and crunchy. It could easily be removed, and replaced, if desired. (This issue will not be visible when the basque is worn, so it will still be great for photography, without replacing the padding.) It is labeled as a size 34C, but please check the measurements for more details about size—and feel free to contact us with any questions.
