Vintage corset girdle or garter belt with four groups of little navy blue buttons for attaching garters or suspenders.
Please see my other listing for the matching navy blue suspender set !

I have a very similar but slightly shorter corset also listed in the shop : their satin front panels have a different pattern of decorative stitching on them.

11 hooks and eyes close the garment, and under the strip of eyes is a beautiful band of soft blue velvet. There are two narrow straight bones in the center front panel, under the satin and encased in a pure smooth cotton lining.
There are two side panels in blue satin too. The rest is all stretchy navy blue elastic.

The French maker is 'France Ligne' and the size is marked as 90. A third little label says `coton'.

It stretches over my model which has a 26 inch ( 66cm ) waist and 36 inch ( 90cm ) hips and you might get up to an inch more as the elastic is quite forgiving.
It's about 10 1/2 inches ( 26 1/2 cm ) from top to bottom edges.

I found this in an old mercerie or haberdashery here in the Auvergne - and the delightful proprietor told me that this was part of his mother's stock, from the 1940's or 50's or possibly even before that !

There are no flaws or stains - this piece of lingerie has remained untouched and dreaming for decades.
