50s/60s Black Lace Strapless Bra - sm
Strapless bra in black nylon lace with smooth lining. Plunging front for low-cut styles. Each cup has double boning and three-part sewn construction, with elastic beneath. Additional boning at sides for stability. At back, double elastic bands join at a two-hook, adjustable closure. From the 50s or early 60s, and the Elizabeth W. estate.
Please note that to keep our garments completely clean, we avoid using live models for intimate apparel. Bebe the Mannequin's curves have no softness or give, so the bra does not fit her as well as it would an actual woman.
