Condition Detail
Very nice overall, the under arms have a scant tinge of tanning just adjacent to the lowest curve of the armhole, a barely perceptible trace of same to left neckline that is probably a remaining hint of make-up, has been minimized to the point it's hard to find at all; the back bodice has a single pinpoint hole high at right shoulder and a few very shallow picks to lower bodice, also hard to notice
