This deadstock, unworn 1950s white full slip with lace trim is labeled a size 40 Tall. Made of white nylon, with bands of lace trim at the top of the bodice and at the hem, the slip has non-adjustable, wide lace straps. The waist seam comes to a point at the center, front and back, and is raised a bit higher in the front, with gathers under the bust, just above it. The slip has no fastenings and must be pulled on over the head. This lovely, lacy white 1950s slip is in excellent to mint condition, unworn with its original tag.
