Large 1940s Black Strapless Slip with Sheer Navy Lace Bustline - Size 12 Halter Full Slip - Medium 40s Pin-Up Girl Burlesque - Bust to 40

$ 99.99

This unusual 1940s full slip is a special find, with a ribbon halter tie, sheer stretch lace bustline, and mid-40s silhouette with light ruffles at the sides waist. It's a gentle hourglass design with a soft A-line flare to the skirt, lightly elasticized to back bodice. The halter ties could be worn as shown, or tucked in to convert to strapless. So beautiful from World War II era, originally a slip, potentially a dress today if worn with an opaque under-layer.
